    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon When it comes to a career change over 50 , success really can be a matter of mindset. Whether you are looking for a complete change of career direction, are looking for a new role as a result of redundancy or returning to the workplace following a career break, how you feel about your can make all the difference – if you believe it will be a barrier it will be.

  5. Don’t let Age be a Barrier in your Job Search.

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I have lost track of how many times I have heard individuals in their 50s and beyond say that there was no point in even trying to look for a  new job as their age would count against them. Why would you assume that? Accepting defeat before you even start is a self perpetuating prophesy. Think of the positives you are able to offer an employer even in light of the pandemic. You have a wealth of experience you can bring to an employer You have a wealth of experience you can bring to an employer – and far from being averse to learning new technology research has shown that it is older workers who are most willing to adapt and embrace new technology...
  6. My style over 50: A new style over 50 series

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I thought it would be fun to have women over 50 who love clothes to share their style stories with Fab after Fifty readers. I’m starting the series by sharing my own personal style.  I don’t think I’ve ever interviewed myself before!! About me: I have always loved clothes – from a very young age – I didn’t really play with dolls as such as a child – but I did create outfits for them- making a lot of them myself out of scraps of fabric and wool left over from family members knitting. My grandfather was a tailor- as were many generations of the family before him – he never really played with us – but did explain how patterns were cut,...

  9. How to measure yourself for the right sized bra

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon With most changing rooms closed following lockdown, and with social distancing in place, having a bra fitting when buying new lingerie has become a problem. Especially as most of us are now buying online. Our shape changes continually and most of us need a bra that offers more support as we get older.  Wearing the right sized bra immediately helps us to look slimmer, our waists better defined, and clothes will just quite simply look better. There is no point in spending a fortune on that perfect dress, only to wear it with a badly fitting bra. How do we make sure that we are buying the right sized bra. I asked online lingerie retailer Figleaves for their top tips to...
  10. Tips for shopping in your own wardrobe: knowing what clothes you already own 

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I am a great believer in shopping in your own wardrobe before investing in anything new.  I have friends who often compliment me on what I’m wearing and are clearly surprised when I say I have had the items making up my outfit for decades. In fact they have asked me to help them ‘shop in their own wardrobes’ and we’ve had great fun doing it.  But before you can start ‘shopping’ to have to be fully aware of what items you possess to choose from. I have to confess to being a bit of a hoarder when it comes to clothes. And like everyone else I had items lurking in the back of the wardrobe that have not seen the light of...
