Love is Ageless

Love is Ageless

Listening to Kate Taylor ( sex therapist ) at the Vagisan UK event in Camden, January 26th , it was interesting to hear her speak on the problems women encounter dating in mid life.  The lack of confidence that ensues particularly around the details of bedroom activities, and I’m not referring to book at bedtime or reorganising the underwear draw…..

Have a Heart and Wear Red

As we begin to see the first signs of Spring, we are, today, being encouraged to wear Red, a strong, vibrant and powerful colour which can offer help to draw attention and stand out from the crowd. It’s WEAR RED DAY.

Office Banter - Offensive or Productive ?

Reading an item from @Pausitivity on the subject of depression and anxiety which has been recognised as the most common reason for women taking a trip to the GP’s surgery without recognising that they were going through the menopause and, only 5% recognised that depression and anxiety were in fact a symptom.
2020 - It's Time for the Rat

2020 - It's Time for the Rat

This blog is a nod to our Chinese colleagues who work tirelessly for us and lend their support with innovative products.

The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is determined by the date of the Lunar New Year where celebrations take place on the new moon between 21st January -20th February.

25th January 2020 sees the start of the Year of the Rat, an animal, which, for most has connotations of dirt and menace, yet for the Chinese it symbolises wealth and the beginning of a new day. Let’s drink to that………

Helicopters and Snow Ploughs. What is the connection ?

Helicopters and Snow Ploughs. What is the connection ?

Over the years a label has been applied to most things in our daily lives and "parenting" is no exception with many being far from complimentary.

Much has been spoken about parenting and the methods employed in bringing up children and it would seem that we are giving parenting a bad name.

Is Veganism the Meal Deal ?

Vegan is, without doubt, the hot potato at the moment with more and more people turning to this as their preferred choice of diet. The campaigns to eat less meat in an effort to restore some equilibrium in our planet’s welfare has been a major driver but while we all recognise the need to respect our environment there are also major benefits for those suffering in the menopause.
Don't be Blue, be Green this Christmas

Don't be Blue, be Green this Christmas

As we enter the final furlong of our Christmas preparations and the final number of satsumas and mince pies is calculated, it seems that this year, more than ever, we are turning our attention to the cost of Christmas not just financially but environmentally and the impact the festive season is having.
Friendship is more than Friendship

Friendship is more than Friendship

There is one time in our calendar when a cacophony of emotions, a perfect storm of sentiments rage through most households. Yes, it’s Christmas the season of goodwill to fellowmen! Did the “goodwill” somehow get lost in translation, has it been lost beneath the pressure to find the right sized jumper for Aunt Judy or the fight to host this year’s celebratory dinner.
Colour is not as Black and White as we think

Colour is not as Black and White as we think

With the onset of Red Wednesday and Black Friday we find ourselves in the latter stages of colour selection for Fifty One Apparel's Spring Summer 2020 collection. It is, perhaps, appropriate to consider the relevance of colour in our day to day lives as we embark on what shades we keep and what we discard.

Vitamin D gets an A plus

As Winter approaches and the threat of another Beast from the East looms bringing -9 degrees temperatures to our shores the memories of those long sunshine filled days bring to mind the importance of Vitamin D sometimes referred to as the Sunshine Vitamin.
The Power of a Nap

The Power of a Nap

Everyone knows the benefits of a good night’s sleep. I, for one am a huge advocate of sleep over medication, I’m no medic but, rightly or wrongly, the slightest hint of an illness and a hot bath and an inviting pillow is the preferred choice over the popping of a pill or a teaspoon of an unpleasant concoction on “doctor’s orders”

Be Inspired to Inspire.

What is Inspiration ?

The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

We all need inspiration at times. A weekly blog, in itself, requires motivation and maybe just one spark to ignite the dormant imagination.
