  1. Having Confidence in High Heels after 50

    Comment
    Article by Michele Paradise- the Bridal Coach I’ve met a lot of people in my lifetime and the common denominator for all of them is that everyone, and I mean everyone, wants a bit more confidence in some area of their lives.  I have met some of the most beautiful women and men in the world and on the outside they appear to have it all…the perfect body, the perfect face, the perfect skin and people pay them thousands of pounds just to wear their clothes or hold their product in a commercial.  You may see them in a magazine or on TV and think they have no problems, they’re beautiful, but you would be wrong.  They ask me to coach them in confidence, but what is...
  2. When Hormones Change your Shape

    1
    Article by Dr Ravi Jain The menopause and the associated symptoms varies enormously from woman to woman – however, most women find that the change in hormones also means a change in shape.      The waist can vanish as fatty deposits settle around the middle.  That pert derriere suddenly descends to a lower level and seems to have attracted a softer, flabbier consistency.  Trousers that used to fit perfectly around the thighs now strain the seams.Dedicated dieting doesn’t seem to be having much effect – except perhaps that the bits that haven’t attracted excess ‘flab’ have become scrawnier looking!  Is that it?  Are you destined lose your elegant silhouette and you just have to put up with it? Fortunately, the answer is ‘no way’ – there’s plenty that you can do. It takes a little...
  3. Correct Your Posture With Pilates

    Comment
    Article by Julie Clifton of the Pilates Foundation We all know that first impressions count but it might surprise you to hear that one of the first things people notice about you is your posture. Celebrities of a certain age have all declared themselves devotees How you hold yourself when you walk into a room sparks off an instant response from others about you – from assessing your confidence to giving an idea of your age. In fact, there’s nothing that makes you look older more quickly than a heavy step, a jutting chin and the pot belly caused by the long curve in your spine. Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on balance and alignment and can give you that sexy stride which will make you look and feel more confident. ...
  4. Are You a Diet Dater?

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty With nearly 90 per cent (89%) of UK women surveyed having tried to lose weight at some point in their lives – 60 per cent are claiming they are currently on a diet and one in five women saying they are on a ‘continuous diet’ – there is clearly a massive disconnect between how women think about dieting and what they actually do. Cheryl Baker: Making my diet mind up Bucks Fizz singer and TV presenter Cheryl Baker, 56, says she’s definitely suffered from Diet Dating Syndrome (DDS) in the past:  “I’ve not just been a yo-yo dieter – I’d describe myself more as a bungee-jumping dieter!  Always ready to jump in, both feet first, to any new diet or fad that was going.  I’ve...
  5. Can you start Pilates when you’re over 50?

    2
    Article by Julie Clifton of the Pilates Foundation Everybody has heard about Pilates, how it’s the exercise choice of celebrities, how it will give you a flatter stomach, better posture and a longer, stronger body. But is it something that you can start when you’re over 50? And if it is how do you find a teacher and a class that will suit you? If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young Joseph Pilates said that “Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.” A hundred years later many doctors, osteopaths and physiotherapists...
  6. Why Diets Don’t Work

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness Are you someone who has either struggled to lose weight over the years or maybe you’ve experienced Yo-Yo dieting. This is the repeated loss and regain of weight due to excessive dieting. If you are then you’re probably feeling fed-up with the whole experience and wondering if you’ll ever be the weight you want to be. I work with people on the issue of weight loss and I’ve noticed two interesting trends. Focus on What you Want What do I mean by that? If I say to you ‘whatever you do don’t think of a blue elephant right now’.  What happens?  That’s right.  You end up focusing on a blue elephant because our unconscious mind cannot process a...
  7. Top Tips for Weight Loss

    Comment
    Five Top Tips to Achieve your  Weight Loss         Helen Jones 1. Write down everything you eat and drink each day  Keep a little book with you and write down absolutely everything you eat and drink each day – and I mean EVERYTHING.  Quite often our memory can be selective when we recall what we have eaten and whether we have stuck to commitments to eat more healthily.  Did you remember the odd biscuit with your cup of tea, that second glass of wine or the tasty samples while you were cooking?  It can be quite surprising how much we have consumed over a week and this will heighten your awareness of where to make changes. 2. Forget the end weight loss goal Quite often repeating the amount of weight you want to lose can seem a burden mentally rather than a motivator, especially if you...

  9. How to Choose the Best Jeans for Your Bodyshape-never too old to wear Jeans

    1
     Article by Sam Remer Can you imagine a world without jeans? The world would come to a stand still while it decided what to wear! Denim is such a staple in our wardrobe it would be a real loss if we decided when we reach  50 to hang up our jeans. As a denim expert I can honestly say hand on heart “you’re never too old to wear jeans”.    At your age you should know better? This isn’t necessarily true when it comes to jeans, as it’s easy to get in a denim rut and wear the same pair due to fear of getting it wrong. Jeans have never been so comfortable as a Lycra  mix in denim gives that figure fixing stretch and hold that...
  10. How to choose the Right Sized Bra over 50

    4
    Article by the Nicky Hambleton-Jones style team I must, I must, I must improve my bust! Come on everybody both hands gripping your wrists and press together to get those pectoral muscles moving and repeat the mantra. It is after all only the pectoral muscles that can be exercised to improve the bust area. When it comes to the bust, breast tissue needs support as other than the underlying pectoral muscles it is collagen and elastin which along with ligaments help to support the breast. We all know that puberty, pregnancies, weight and the menopause can all effect breast size. Regular bra fittings are a good starting point There are probably two things a woman wants from a bra – uplift and comfort. Both can be achieved...
