  1. Is Modibodi underwear the best solution for women suffering from incontinence.

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Is Modibodi underwear the best solution for women suffering from incontinence? One in four women suffer from incontinence with that number increasing to 75% of women over the age of 65. Incontinence can impact quality of life and self confidence.  The two key types of incontinence are stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Each has different treatment options but both need to be dealt with on a daily basis in much the same way. Incontinence pads are an obvious choice, and disposable incontinence underwear another.  Both can prove costly . However there is now an additional option. Modibodi who created the original period panties have now launched a range of underwear for women suffering from incontinence. Made from bamboo and elastane, they...
  2. Review of Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+

    Comment
     Review by Ceri Wheeldon I am a fan of facial oils and have not been disappointed in the Rosehip Oil from Trilogy.  Made from a blend of rosehip and cranberry oils with the addition of antioxidant extracts from tomato and acai, it is incredibly hydrating. When I used it at night my skin still felt hydrated when I woke in the morning. It isn’t at all greasy and is very easily absorbed into the skin. The scent is extremely subtle – in fact I could barely smell anything which is a definite plus for me as I have found some other oils to be too highly perfumed . I appliead twice daily (morning and evening)  When applied to the skin it leaves a lovely...
  3. Author Interview: Cary J Hansson talks about her first novel A Midlife Holiday

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon Cary J Hansson talks about the inspiration behind her first published novel, A Midlife Holiday. I’m Cary. I’m 55, a mum of three (Twins of 20 and a late-life baby who is now 11!) I’m from Norfolk, UK, but I now live in Stockholm, with my Swedish husband. I’ve been there for about 10 yrs. When did you start to write? At age 40, I went to University to study Creative Writing and English Literature. I finished with a First Class degree, moved to Sweden and have been writing seriously, as in every day, for ten years. What have been the challenges for you? Keeping going in the face of so much rejection – which is only par for the...
  4. Review: Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist.

    Comment
    Review: Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist. Review by Ceri Wheeldon With the warmer weather finally arriving, one way to keep skin feeling hydrated and looking dewy is to use a facial mist . I have tried the Rosewater and Glycerin Hydrating Facial Mist from Heritage Store. One spritz of this spray and skin feels instantly refreshed. It is light and smells ‘fresh’ rather than heavily scented. It has a nostalgic old fashioned feel to it. It leaves skin feeling soft . The glycerin helps to lock in moisture – its great for helping to set makeup. Especially in warmer weather ( or if you suffer from hot flushes). It also helps to maintain the skin’s ph levels. It’s ideal if you...
  5. Review of PMD’s Personal Microderm beauty device

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I have to admit to being a bit of a gadget junkie when it comes to skincare. I love the luxury of a salon facial but have to confess to preferring the convenience of having a facial at home. No travel or messy hair to contend with afterwards! Moving through my 50s and now 60s has not diminished my interest in sourcing the best best skincare tools. When I was invited to try PMD’s Personal Microderm I just had to say yes. It claims to replicate the microdermabrasion treatment you have at a professional salon. It combines a vacuuming action while simultaneously exfoliating with a disc ( there are different grades of disc ( aluminium oxide) , you progress to the higher grades...
  6. Review of St Moriz Miracle Glow Face Tan Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I think this might just have become one of my favourite ‘go to’ products. I have tried face tanning products before, but this by far the best I have tried so far. When using a tanning product on my face I want to end up with a healthy glow rather than a bronzed look (there are other products in the St Moriz range for this) .  Having said that daily use of the serum will help to build a more tanned look. As we move into spring/summer my skin is looking fairly sallow, not helped by my being more than a little unwell in recent months so I just wanted to look a little healthier! Nourishes the skin as...
  7. Style inspiration over 50: Agatha Raisin

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Who inspires your style? While staying with my parents I was introduced to television programmes that I wouldn’t ordinarily watch – one was Agatha Raisin all about a PR guru turned sleuth who is in theory living a quiet life in the Cotswolds – until she steps into help solve the local murders. But….. it’s not the plot lines that interest me in this programme but Agatha’s fabulous wardrobe. Played by Ashley Jensen (who I remember from Ugly Betty) Agatha epitomises being stylish over 50. Her outfits render her far from being invisible over 50 . They are bright and colourful accessorised by her signature oversized handbags. No cross body bags for Agatha! ...
  8. Review: Hair Boss The Double Mask for blondes

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   Most of the hair treatments I am offered are geared towards grey hair, but although I am now in my early 60s I still have no grey. My hair has become a little darker, but I am still very much a blonde! If you follow me on social media you will know that I have been through the wars health wise recently, and all the treatments I have had have really taken their toll on my hair. My hair has been far from the crowning glory it once was. When I was asked id  I would like to try some of the products formulated for blonde hair in Lisa Shepherd’s Hair Boss range I quickly said yes. The...
