_xààxÜ yÜÉÅ exz|ÉÇtÄ W|ÜxvàÉÜ “Tribute Letter” I would like to take the time to thank an incredible woman I have had the pleasure of serving on the FGI Board with for some time now. This individual has, like many others on our board, selflessly served FGI San Diego for a couple of years now. Her handiwork has been viewed by thousands of our fans and followers. You know her as the Editor of our FGI San Diego newsletter, Jeanette Crutchfield. Jeanette has been actively involved in our organization since she joined. Jumping in with both feet is the attitude of this hard-working-woman; Attention to detail is her specialty; and beauty is her passion. This talented beauty-professional has orchestrated countless photo shoots and has contributed to many FGI San Diego events. Jeanette Crutchfield has been scheduled to be the Regional Director following my term (which ends at the end of this calendar year) and unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances she is unable to take on the responsibility of being our next Regional Director. It is with great sadness that I bring this news to you as I was one of many who was very excited about her becoming our 2014-2015 leader. Lets all wish this incredible woman the best as she continues and we will keep our fingers crossed that she will perhaps be our 2016-2017 RD!

_xààxÜ yÜÉÅ Xw|àÉÜ Hello FGI San Diego! WOW!!! This year is FLYING by!!! I don’t know about the rest of you, but this year has just been a blur of activity! Every time I turn around it seems that there are ten more things added to my to-do pile (and yes, it’s a PILE, it no longer fits into any file folder). Lately I feel like I’m running a mile a minute but with all of the projects that keep adding up, I honestly feel like I’m going backwards. I suppose it’s much better than being stagnant. As long as you are moving, you are growing and I definitely want to grow up to be supermodel tall!!! ;-) Here’s hoping that each of you are constantly growing, constantly reviewing your priorities in life and constantly being fashionabulous! Tune into next month’s issue where you will get to meet the winner of Fashion Week San Diego as well as meet all of our new FGI San Diego members from this year! Until next time…

Established in 1930, The Fashion Group International was founded on the idea that it takes an exceptional woman to flourish and succeed in the challenging world of fashion. That year, seventeen women gathered by Edna Woolman Chase, editor-in-chief of VOGUE, met for lunch in New York City.

"I purchased the TDW Menthe Blanche Microfoliator for my sister. It only took two days and she called me and said that her skin was ALREADY improving and her husband even noticed it! INCREDIBLE STUFF!" "Thank you so much for my incredible care package of TDW products!!! I swear I love your skin care line so much! I was at Lymphedema therapy this week and my therapist commented on how much my skin glowed and I told her all about your products! I swear they are THE BEST!!! They also smell so fresh and healthy! I hope they can also chase those cancer cells of mine away! That would be pretty incredible! :))) I love you for being such a good friend and always so supportive! XO" "Joanne, these essential oils are incredible. Your products are a serious blessing to my over-tanned, under-nourished skin." "As a medical esthetician I incorporate The Doctor's Wife product CRĂˆME DE MENTHE MICROFOLIATOR into my microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatments. I use this product as a prepping agent to effectively clean and prepare the skin for the professional exfoliating process without overly dehydrating the skin. I also recommend Creme de Menthe Microfoliator to my clients to further enhance in office skin treatments. This product is also fantastic for acne prone skin types, as well as keeping skin hyperpigmentation condition at bay through daily microscopic exfoliation."

www.the-doctors-wife.com

"The Doctor's Wife Creme de Menthe Microfoliator is a fantastic product for men and women. There's no hype or fluff to the entire product line. The Doctor's Wife, Joanne Laverson and her husband, Plastic Surgeon Steve Laverson, started this line more than a decade ago. This is the top of the line. Mostly formuated for Mrs. Laverson: do these products keep you young looking? Look at her picture. For men, Dr. Laverson suggested using it before shaving for the closest shave ever. Talk about "skin impact", this stuff is powerful. Great way to wake up and get going. But beware: a few drops goes a long way." 9
