  1. How body confident are you over 50? : Body confidence comes at age 49

    3
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Does our body confidence increase as we get older? As the news that Gwyneth Paltrow feels more bikini-body confident at age 42 than she did 20 years ago, a JD Williams poll has found that women feel best about their bodies at age 49. The Facebook poll asked 2,000 women aged 50 and over when they felt their most confident on the beach and happy with their body and appearance.

Body confidence is not just for teens and women in their 20s Body confidence isn’t limited to teens and women in their twenties, but women in their late forties are embracing their bodies and...

  6. Ditching people’s expectations to enjoy life on your terms

    1
    Article by Magdalena Bak-Maier Whatever one’s age, we all play to other people’s expectations to some degree. We are influenced by trends from magazines telling us what to wear, how much make up to use, where to holiday and how to generally create a lifestyle that fits with what is expected by the majority only who exactly? Is it your friends? Family? Co-workers? People you may never meet? Let’s face it. For many of us, the idea of looking trendy, covering grey hair and seeming ever younger and successful can lead to continuous chase, low-esteem, or even financial ruin.  Whilst we can not ignore expectations all together, perhaps the best and healthiest place to start may in fact be with those we want to set for ourselves. After all, who else knows our capability, personality, interests and aspirations as intimately as we do. Now for many people, behaving in a way that seems...

  8. What a phenomenal woman… just like you!

    Comment
    Article by Sharon Eden A phenomenal woman died last week.  Maya Angelou, activist and poet.  She wrote about you, a woman, not idealised as in glossy magazines, or defined as wife, mother, lover, angel, whore… But womanly, standing in your own ground as WOMAN! An uncertain childhood, raped at 8 by her mother’s ‘friend’, she told her family and the man was killed (possibly by one of her uncles).  Five and a half years of being mute followed, for understandable reasons… She recalls it as, “I chose not to speak!” And that’s just for starters.  The woman led an awesome life as a warm, open and loving human being, despite trauma and abuse.  Now, whether you’ve experienced trauma and abuse or not, Maya speaks for you and me, 50+ women in all our...
  9. Do women feel invisible to the opposite sex at 51.

    21
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon As a new survey claims that women feel invisible to the opposite sex at 51.  If  you had been one of the 2000 women asked to participate, would you have responded in the same way? I have to say that this particular survey seems to convey a pretty grim outlook on life over 50 – it would be interesting to see precisely what questions were asked. These are just some of the findings: Many went as far as to admit they felt ‘ignored’. The women who said their confidence plummeted after hitting 50 blamed the fact their hair was greying or they were having to wear glasses, while others found it harder to find fashionable clothes. The lifestyle study, commissioned by herbal remedies company, A.Vogel, also found more than two thirds of...
