  1. What can you expect to see on the NEW Fab after Fifty Chat show? Midlife Real Life

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon   What can you expect to see on the NEW Fab after Fifty Chat show? We will be talking all things MidLife Real Life. I am joined by regular panelists stylist and brand consultant Maggie McMillan, and makeup artist Jo-Anne Jewitt. As we move forward we will have a variety of guests talking all things midlife, including career,  exercise, face yoga, nutrition, confidence. In our first episode we chat all things makeup over 50 – and how to avoid some common mistakes. We also chat about going grey, the impact of lockdown, and share some of our hero products with you. Curiously Maggie’s hero product is a spoon! The mind boggles, but she does explain why it is part of her beauty routine ?   The show is very informal, but we hope you will find it fun and informative. We would love...
  2. The Phenomenon of the InstaGran

    Comment
    Article by Beth Dobson   Dwelling  quietly in an upmarket café, I experienced the wrath of a new subspecies and a revolution in middle-aged humanity. The instagran. Often hunting in packs, their eagle-eyed scouts spy out the very best grammable locations. Adorned in chic attire, they professionally practice their signature pose whilst their post-menopausal pals direct them encouragingly. Pensive, glamorous, aloof, ecstatic, they can do them all. Flash after flash, pose after pose. Then once the photoshoot has come to a reluctant close, the editing begins. An hour or so later, with a polished tagline and appropriate hashtag, one solitary, filtered image emerges on social media for all to see. The flurry of likes begins and the cycle of the instagran continues.   My first experience of the instagran was...
  3. Buying The Perfect Milestone Gift For Your Partner

    Comment
      Finding the perfect gift for that special someone in your life can be tricky. This especially true if it is for a specific milestone occasion such as a 50th birthday, or a significant wedding anniversary. You will want to get something particularly personal that will mean a lot to the recipient. Even if you know the person extremely well, it can be tough to get that special gift. You will want something that they will find personally useful or enjoyable. You will want to find a balance between practicality and sentiment. There will also be a need to know that your gift will be well received while being meaningful to your partner.  While it is traditional to buy gifts such inscribed gold watches, or cufflinks for significant...

  6. 7 Tips for Setting up a Book Club

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Setting up a book club is a great way of having regular get togethers with a group of friends. I started a book club about a year ago. Currently there are five of us who come together every four to six weeks . The evenings are informal, we take it turn to host, and take in turn to choose the next read. So what have we learnt and what tips can I offer as a result? Decide how serious you want your book club to be. Do you want to engage in an in-depth analysis of each book (there are lots of sites were you can download author’s notes and discussion topics for book clubs) or do you want the...
  7. Quiz: Would you have been persecuted for witchcraft 400 years ago?

    Comment
    Quiz by Tobsha Lerner Bestselling novelist and former journalist Tobsha Learner,  has researched the role magic and astrology  has played through history for her fantastic new book The Magick of Master Lilly (Little Brown), exploring the fascinating life of Master William Lilly – one of the most famous astrologers in British history. Tobsha has put together a fun quiz to explore whether you would have been defined as a witch in times gone by. For centuries women have been persecuted for being witches. This peaked in the mid 17th century during the civil war when an ambitious young shipping clerk Matthew Hopkins saw a way of furthering his career by proclaiming himself the Witchfinder general. He prosecuted and executed at least three hundred women...

    Comment
    Delicious tasting wine has the ability to transport you to where it was originally made, but how does that fruity beverage make its way to your glass?

  9. Pursuing creative projects after 50

    Comment
    The idea that we are only creative when we are young is an unfortunately common misconception. As with many processes, it varies from person to person: while some tend to peak earlier, others enjoy a spurt of creativity in later years. One thing that’s for sure is our productivity tends to wane as the years go by, but do not let this deter you. Not only does time usually free up in later years, but creativity can go at whatever pace you choose. Take Julia Child, for example: the popular chef found fame with her TV show The French Chef when she was in her 50s. Or how about Grandma Moses, an American painter whose first real break came about when she...
  10. What is the Law of Attraction?

    Comment
    Article by Alexandra Sutcliife Made famous by the 2006 movie The Secret, the Law of Attraction works on the principle that our vibrations, created by our thoughts, are constantly attracting ‘things’ in life, good or bad. Quantum physics states that matter is simply condensed energy, and everything in the world is made of energy, which vibrates at different levels.   Matter contains consciousness, so whatever we think, say or do creates vibrations, which then manipulate the energy in and around us.   Our energy is constantly attracting matching energy, and the starting point for this is our thoughts.  Put simply, thoughts become things. The Law of Attraction is working 24/7, whether we like it or not.  Everything we have in our lives now, both good and bad, we have created...
