Lynnette is one of our nearest and dearest friends. I can’t really speak enough about how much I love this woman. She is truly awesome. So when she asked me a few months ago if I would help her buy some skincare and make-up products, I said absolutely, yes.

Lynnette is 47 years-old, has raised two beautiful daughters both in their 20s, is married to a wonderful man, and works full-time. As you can see from the photo above, she has bright blue eyes and great luminous skin. Let’s all hope we age as well as she has.
