  2. Divorce over 50: How to Have a Good Divorce

    Comment
    Article by Sara Davison WARNING: It is NOT easy to have a good divorce – but it is possible.   There is a good reason that it is known as the second most traumatic experience in life after death of a loved one. It is an emotional rollercoaster and has a huge ripple effect across your entire world. It will affect your mental and physical health, lifestyle, daily routine, children, work life, friends and family. We see the ‘Conscious Uncoupling’ celebrities who release amicable and loving statements on Twitter – and frankly I admire them for this. It is without a shadow of a doubt better for everyone involved if you can...

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon Author Jan Harvey shares her route to writing her first novel, and her inspiration behind her latest latest book. About Jan: My name is Jan Harvey, I am an author and artist living in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. I moved here twenty-one years ago and live in a small, but thriving, village with my husband, Paul and flat-coated retriever, Byron. I write historical fiction and love to immerse myself in the social history of both England and France. I am an avid reader and enjoy everything from the classics to modern gritty novels but, above all, I love a mystery.   When did you start to write? I used to design, write and edit business publications, but as websites became the ‘new media’ I lost...
  4. Top tips for staying flu-free this winter

    Comment
    Article by  CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine) None of us wants colds or flu, especially not when we want to enjoy the holiday season!  Aiming to avoid flu is our best strategy, since once it takes hold, the virus can lead to lowered immunity for some time afterwards, making us more susceptible to other winter bugs and bacterial infections. Trying to avoid the initial infection is our best strategy. Germs can live on surfaces for days, so avoid touching your face, biting your nails, or eating, without first washing your hands for at least 20 seconds with warm water and natural soap. To put ourselves in the best condition to fight off germs, it also pays to strengthen our immune system to enhance resilience....
  5. Interview with Emily Atef director of 3 Days In Quiberon about the iconic Romy Schneider

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon How do you approach a film about an iconic star, Romy Schneider who in Europe, was the famous actress of her time.  Referred to as ‘Romy’ with no last name required, she was a legend in her own lifetime.I asked director Emily Atef about the challenge of taking on such a project. Q: What prompted you to become involved in the project? Romy Schneider is a mega superstar in France and in Germany, she’s part of the culture there. I’ve known of her since I was very young, and known her films, especially the French films.  I was always fascinated by her, because she was also a fashion icon but I was never a total, unconditional fan. I would...

  7. Imedeen Prime Renewal Review Part 2 : The Results

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I posted at the start of taking Imedeen Prime Renewal supplements and promised an update at the end of 3 months. My skin is noticeably softer and plumper. I have noticed a significant difference in my neck and décolletage – great as I tend to sleep on my side and being quite big busted that area tends to become crepey with vertical lines – they are definitely softer and the whole area feels smoother. The other area I noticed a big difference in was my lower legs. Normally they feel really dry – despite applying body lotion daily, since taking the Imedeen supplements I started to see a difference after about 6 weeks. I was paid a terrific compliment when I met somebody for the first time...
  8. Updating your look with simple accessories

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon By the time we get to our 50s we have developed our own sense of style.  I love my dresses (with and without sleeves) and really enjoy having occasions when I have an excuse to turn on the glam. But most of the time you will find me in a variety of black jeans and tops – especially on the days when I am working from home.  It has pretty well become my uniform once summer is over. What I do tend to do is update with accessories – that don’t cost a fortune. I have some great finds from markets I’ve visited in France and Italy, but I also keep an eye out on the high street....
  9. My 50s will be better than ever says Angela

    Comment
    Article by Angela MacRitchie Angela MacRitchie tells Fab After Fifty about her remarkable health journey which inspired a whole new career.   She studied at CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). I was a county gymnast but at the age of 19 my knee swelled up and I could only walk with the help of crutches.  Over the next twenty years I had six operations, took heavy pain-killers and was often bed-ridden with the pain. After the sixth operation my consultant said ‘No more operations, I’m referring you to the Rheumatology clinic’.   I was prescribed a cocktail of powerful anti-inflammatory drugs, which, despite making me feel very unwell for the first three months, ultimately brought down the swelling dramatically and meant that I could dispense with the crutches,...
  10. Should we let the menopause become an issue in the workplace?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Last week I was invited to a panel discussion on the menopause , where following on from research commissioned by Superdrug as part of their Life Plus Beauty report. The report highlighted that the Menopause is undoubtedly a concern of growing older, with 50 per cent of those yet to experience it admitting to worrying about its approach, rising to 69 per cent in the under 50s. When it comes to the symptoms playing on their minds, hot flushes not only topped the list of the biggest worry but it was also the symptom experienced most by those who were post-menopausal, with 68 percent saying they suffered from them. Women were three times more likely to be worried about losing their...
