  1. Denise Welch shares her tips for being stylish over 50 when starting over

    Comment
    Interview with Denise Welch How do you bring your style up to date when starting over in your 50s? Denise Welch shares her style inspiration. Denise Welch hasn’t been a stranger to headlines of late. The 54-year-old actress and presenter has had what she herself professes “an eventful year”, and with new book ‘Starting Over’ lifting the lid on recent events for the star, it’s no surprise to find that Welch is looking for a bit more normality for the remainder of 2012. But to learn that such normality starts with a pair of pyjamas? This we must hear more about. “After everything that has happened recently, it’s nice to get back to basics, and I’m always aware that I’ve returned to normality when I...
  2. Getting on with the in-laws! Lulu offers her tips on becoming a mother-in-law

    1
    Article by Lulu. While every newly married couple is warned about nightmare mother-in-laws (we’ve all heard the jokes), something that is not mentioned is the sudden change in the balance of the family as a whole when one of your children gets married.  As well as gaining a daughter or son, you are gaining a whole other family who will become part of yours for ever.  Their advice will be just as important as yours and their role just as key.  You will all attend the same ‘big’ events.  You will love and care about the same people.  And if you are lucky enough, you will become co-grandparents – and both be quite sure no-one has loved this grandchild quite like you! Hoping my son’s...
  3. Are you ready to start dating again after divorce, separation or partner loss?

    2
    Article by Teresa Welch How do you know if you are ready for dating again after relationship collapse? For some the thought of dating again fills them with dread, and for others they can’t wait to get back in the dating scene. Having suddenly become single myself after a 12 year marriage ended and with two very small children, dating was the last thing on my mind, and naively at only 34 I thought that when I was ready it would be easy. How wrong could I have been? No one tells you that your life will never be the same again. Different, but never the same. Through chance in the early day’s I did go on a couple of dates. I was going through a divorce...
  4. ARK At Home Age Aware Skincare – what are the benefits?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon. We talked to founder of ARK Age Aware Skincare, Shula Starkey, about age targetted skincare and home based business opportunities: What do women over 50 need to consider when choosing a skincare product? Once we reach 50 the function of our skin immune cells deteriorates. We need to think about repairing the skin and boosting hydration to slow down the ageing process. Choose products that do not irritate or inflame the skin and that contain antioxidants and skin-brightening ingredients. The Age Repair range has been created specifically for skin aged 50 and over. The products are aimed at boosting collagen, maximising hydration, reducing inflammation and repairing cell damage.   Can any one product be effective in combating all the signs of ageing? I don’t believe one product can combat...
  5. Life gets better and better over 60 for Christyne

    Article by Christyne. The last you heard from me was earlier in the year when I was featured and pictured in a 2 page spread for the quarterly magazine Life and Living, not front page this time Twiggy had that slot. I did enjoy doing another professional shoot in London Shortly after I auditioned and got a small speaking role in a film university students were making as a mysterious shop keeper, it was great fun and done in a very professional way and a great experience. After that in April I entered a model search competition held at a local shopping centre over 260 men and women turned up to be photographed this was whittled down eventually to the final 19 who were then...
  6. Top tips. How to do your make up if you wear glasses.

    1
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Our 50s is a time of life when more and more of us start to wear glasses. But how do we adapt our make-up? Firstly  look at the shape of your frame, when you apply your make-up you need to create balance with your face. Do have large bold rimmed glasses? Frameless? Whatever shape of frame you have chosen glasses draw more attention to the brow area.  Fill in sparse brows with a pencil or even an eyeshadow that tones with your brows. If you have overplucked your brows in the past, or if you are concerned about thinning brows, there are some great brow enhancer products to stimulate growth such as Revitabrow or EyeCandy ...

  8. The worst thing you can do after your divorce is NOTHING…

    Comment
    Article by Adele Theron. Exercise: Take some time to think back on your life. How have you dealt with loss in the past? (Whether it was the loss of someone special or a beloved pet) ————————————————————————– ————————————————————————– ———————————————————————— What steps did you take that were healthy and healing? ————————————————————————– ————————————————————————– ————————————————————————– What steps did you take, or not take, that hampered your recovery? ————————————————————————– ————————————————————————– ————————————————————————– Healing doesn’t simply happen over time. Healing is an active process, and processing all the feelings and emotions associated with your divorce is essential to getting over it. Divorce acts like a cut and if you don’t dress the wound and work on healing it you will end up with a lot of scar tissue, which will leave a lasting imprint on your life. The real killer to healing is the complacency...
  9. The Important Role of Grandparents

    3
    Article By Diane Priestley I remember the glory days of our kids’ early childhood: the Christmas that Nana and Pa presented two-year-old Justine with a giant fluffy bear bigger than herself; the birthday they gave her the bicycle with trainer wheels; the time Pa wrapped his arms around six-year-old Daniel and taught him how to swing a golf club and how they tinkered in the shed together. Then when Justine started school and we were working late, she would stay with Nana and Pa every afternoon and Nana would make her a ‘happy plate’ and she would sit on Pa’s lap for a story or they’d giggle together at the cartoons. The reliable ritual was a refuge in her little life. There was no place...
  10. Lulu shares her hair tips – we can all have fabulous hair over 50!

    Article by Lulu For better or worse I seem to be known for my hair!  I have always been fascinated by hair and when I was younger wanted to be a hairdresser – I would do my mother and sister’s hair for them on a Saturday night (whether they wanted me to or not!).  I remember my mother’s comment when I married John Frieda  . . .’FINALLY you have your very own hairdresser!’  I have to admit I am a little obsessed so I thought I would tackle some of the questions I get asked all the time . . How do you get hair to look full and bouncy? Well, it starts with a great cut.  That’s essential.  My hairdresser,...
