Finding the best bra for your breast shape

With it being Midlifechic's 10th birthday a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd delve into the stats to see what my most popular post has been and ever since I wrote it over five years ago, it's been the one about finding the best bra for your breast shape. Of course it's all a bit out of date now so I thought it was time for a refresh - after all there's no point in moving on to new [...]

Spring wardrobe lifts that work now

By |2024-02-16T16:21:21+00:00February 16th, 2024|Categories: Hair & Beauty, Style|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

It's a bit of a cornucopia today - I don't know about you but I'm starting to feel the winter blues so I'm looking for spring wardrobe lifts that work now. Starting with clothes, I'm not ready to think about buying anything major yet in terms of outfits. The new collections won't arrive for a while but having seen the trends and some of the retail previews, I have a good idea of what I'm hoping to wear this year. [...]

A midwinter midlife lately

By |2024-02-09T20:46:43+00:00February 9th, 2024|Categories: Family, Style|Tags: , , , , , , |

It feels as though the year is slowly opening its eyes doesn't it? My grandma was an incurable romantic and she insisted that Valentine's Day was the day when every bird found its mate. Obviously nature isn't quite as well programmed as that but some are pairing off already - the owls in our garden have been busy for ages and now the herons on the canal are catching up. It does feel as if hope is there, even if [...]

Midlife – the time for trying out new things

By |2024-02-02T16:58:26+00:00February 2nd, 2024|Categories: Midlife, Project Happier, Travel|Tags: , , , |

We've made it to February my friends and a huge thank you for your enthusiastic response to the meet-up. Mal confiscated my phone on Friday evening to stop me thinking about it so I was over the moon to see that it had sold out on Saturday. For those who've asked, I've managed to add five more places, they've just gone live - link here. I'll move back to the subject of clothes next week but today is another post [...]

Midlife skincare – the products I buy because they work

By |2024-01-26T16:56:54+00:00January 26th, 2024|Categories: Hair & Beauty, Midlife|Tags: , , , , |

My goodness thank you so much for all of your input after last week's post. If you haven't been back to look at the comments on the tougher aspects of midlife and how to deal with them, do take a few minutes to read through them. They show that we're living through it in a completely different way to the generations before us and so we're having to work things out as we go along - but it's helped me [...]

Midlife – the rough comes with smooth – how to handle it

By |2024-01-19T12:24:51+00:00January 19th, 2024|Categories: Midlife, Project Happier, Relationships|Tags: , , |

I'm going to carry on addressing some of the issues you shared with me in last October's survey today. For everyone who's asking, I will talk about style and run the retailer spotlights again but not at the moment when the shops are short on inspiration and we're all wrapped up against the snow. So today is all about the difficult parts of midlife that nobody prepares you for - the rough comes with the smooth - and how to [...]

The quest for midlife mojo

By |2024-01-12T17:10:32+00:00January 12th, 2024|Categories: Hair & Beauty|Tags: , , , , |

I'll be completely honest with you - my mojo is still lounging on a sofa somewhere in December 2023, refusing to join me in the stark grey light of January. I feel like I've had a classic new year's week where everything's been a struggle - the world of retail feels like a moonscape at the moment - barren, cold and definitely low on oxygen. There's nothing fun coming up in my diary, it's cold and dark and everyone I [...]

Happy New 2024 & an investment buy round-up

By |2024-01-05T16:55:50+00:00January 5th, 2024|Categories: Retail Review, Sale|Tags: , , |

Well it's back to it this week with a big happy new 2024 to you. How does it feel? Are you full of fresh starts or is it a bit like having a bucket of cold water tipped over your head? I have to say I'm in the latter camp - the dates didn't fall well this time did they? It was almost as if I hurtled straight from the sparkle of New Year's Eve into the grim reality of [...]
