  1. Moving on after divorce in your 50s – practical steps to build a new social life

    Comment
    By the Midlife Divorcee Nobody expects to get divorced in their 50s, irrespective of who made the decision to bring the marriage to a close – with all the emotional and financial upheaval associated with it, but life does move on. Don’t let this life change turn you into a hermit! Look for groups to join to get out and about Finding yourself on your own also means reviving your social life. To begin with you might be happy to spend time with family members and other couples, but at some point you will want to branch out on your own.  But how? Meetup Groups have proven to be a valuable lifeline for many people wanting to relaunch their social  lives. Not just for singles, meetup groups  are informal groups set up by...
  2. Review Cult 51 Night Cream and Cult 51 Immediate Effect Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I can certainly see why this night cream and serum have created a cult following.   They give 51 reasons why the cream is effective . including an increase of up to 24% of new skin cell production and up to 52% reduction in wrinkles after 28 days. I have been using the Cult 51 night cream for the past 3 weeks and all I can say is ‘wow’ From the first application, the skin is given an immediate boost, I woke up the following morning with my skin feeling as though it had received the benefit of a salon facial- 3 weeks later and my skin is looking visibly better, with my crows feet look far softer – there had been a definite...

  4. Angie Best models new swimwear range at 63

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty. How often do we comment on retailers using young models to sell to clothes to our age group? Well at least one retailer has had the confidence to change that. Retailer JD Williams has announced 63 year old Angie Best, model and former wife of George Best, as the face of its swimwear range by Melissa Odabash. Shot on location in Portugal, the retailer and Angie insisted on minimal image retouching to inspire women to feel comfortable and confident when baring all in a bikini. The iconic model has modelled the 10 piece collection of bikinis, one-pieces and cover ups from Sea by Melissa Odabash – the first swimwear range created specifically to fit and flatter the figure of the 50 plus woman. As a leading fashion retailer for...
  5. 50plus London Fashion Week Event

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Models from Mrs Robinson Management: Evon, Brucella, Sylvia, Tanya, Stefanie, Sharron, Valerie, Elsa, Tracey   I have to admit that when I was invited to the first 50plus fashion week event I was in two minds as to whether or not to go – I get so tired of being inundated with press releases from brands saying that they want to show me clothes that my ‘readers will love’, only to be confronted by a sea of images of frumpy, uninspiring clothes, that I tend to beat a hasty retreat, but I’m glad I went. It was a fabulous event and I was pleasantly surprised. Held at the Cafe Royal it was a collaboration between online retailer JD Williams and London College...
  6. Are we building a Dementia Friendly Society?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Most of us today know someone whose life has been affected by dementia.  With an ageing population the incidence of those being diagnosed with dementia will continue to increase.I attended an online webinar talking about the challenges and some of the solutions facing us here in the UK. Looking ahead to 2030, the number of people living with dementia is estimated to increase to 76 million. The odds of getting dementia are 1 in 100 for those in their 60s, while it’s just 1 in 20 for those in their 70s I was amazed to learn that in some parts of the UK, only 20% of those with dementia are actually diagnosed.   So what are the key issues?   Professor Graham Stokes who is the Global Director of Dementia Care at Bupa...
  7. Bound Feet Blues A One Woman Show by Yang-May Ooi: Review

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon   A thought provoking and moving one woman show,  Yang- May Ooi shares her own life experience through the shoes she has worn and compares how the shoes we wear affect our lives and perceptions of us to the Chinese practice of foot binding. Yang-May Ooi  shares fascinating insights as to how the lives of generations of her own family were affected by having their feet bound..or not! Is this tradition of binding feet in order to pursue ideal beauty so different to what we do today in terms of nips and tucks to achieve perceived ideals? Although we may think of foot binding as barbaric, was the creation of the Golden Lotus foot, created through binding, breaking bones and cutting tendons in order to have the ‘beautiful’ feet to capture the best husband...
  8. Silver Sisters Strut!

    1
    Article by Anna Letitia Cook Silver Sisters Strut is a movement that was founded by Diana Jewell the author of a book about going grey. I discovered it from a picture on pinterest which I thought was fabulous – a group of silver haired women with arms linked strutting in Times Square. (Originally from an article by Suzanne de Chillo in The New York Times). They believe in celebrating silver hair; they want to show how grey hair is naturally beautiful, that ageing is glorious. They are the epitome of assured, dynamic women, secure in their beliefs, ageing gracefully and with strength! Why do so many people, (usually those who have dyed their locks), think that grey hair, particularly long, grey hair makes you look like a crazy witch or a...
  9. Meeting the Dalai Lama

    Comment
    Article by Lesley Freeman   We first introduced Lesley when she shared her story behind her book and her work with Tibetan children, here Lesley shares her emotional return to India, and her meeting with the Dalai Lama. On 9th September 2002, through special delivery post, I received the foreword for my book from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  I had given up hope of being one of the very few writers to receive this extremely special “gift”, so I was extremely surprised and remember crying and shaking.  Accompanying the Foreword was a letter, requesting 2 copies of my book for the Tibetan Library in Dharamsala. It wasn’t until 2011 that I found the courage to begin the publishing process and on 29th April 2013 at Tibet House I hosted the launch...
  10. Why taking a lunch break is good for you.

    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty Do you skip lunch? Not take a break? Work right through the day even if working from home? Well perhaps it’s time to have a rethink. I’m as guilty as the next in getting engrossed in my work and not taking time out to eat, but new research suggests that our commitment to our desks could be doing us more harm than good. Research from Caffè Nero reveals that despite nearly 40% of us feeling re-energised (37.9%), a third of us feeling happier (31.9%), a fifth more focused (21.3%) and 16% (16.35%) more motivated after a lunchbreak, nearly one in ten Brits (9.5%) never take a break at all, and 15% of us do lunch ‘al desko’. Most famous for its range of espresso based coffees,...
