Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle


Do you ever feel like this?  Sadly, I’ve been feeling like this a lot lately. Overwhelmed with work, blog and many personal things going on that I’ve never shared with you. But sometimes things in life happen that make you take a second (or third) look at the direction you are headed and all of the sudden you get that aha moment and decide to put on the brakes, or at least slow down. That’s where I am right now, needing to slow down. Some things you can change and some you cannot, and I decided it’s time to change the things I can and one of  them is to not feel so overwhelmed with my blog right now. I’m not going to quit Fab Over Forty, although when I get overwhelmed that thought does cross my mind. But, instead I’m going to not feel the pressure to write every day. I’m going to put the joy back into my blog, which I feel has been slowly disappearing from Fab Over Forty.  I started writing it not because I’m a writer, but because I have a passion for beauty, skincare and the like and I wanted to share my passion.  Somewhere along the years I felt like I was losing what I wanted to write because of all the “rules” – rules that Google puts out for us in order to been seen, rules by PR people, rules by what others felt I should be doing and not what I wanted to do – all these rules made me feel like I was losing the love of what I do and it was becoming more of what everyone else wanted me to do and not what I wanted to do. So in the end I decided that I’m going to keep doing Fab Over Forty, but I’m going to do it when something really inspires ME that I want to share with YOU! Sometimes you may only hear from me once a week, other times more. You may find me more on Pinterest or Facebook, because sometimes I like those venues of communicating more. Just keep looking – you’ll find me!

One of the things I’m not giving up is Fashion Flash. I feel a great bond with these women of Fashion Flash – we’re all over 40, we all have a passion we like to share and we all can relate to many things that one or the other has gone through and I learn many new things from these women just like you do.  This week Barbara from Best of Everything Over 50. Barbara delves into many topics and has written for Huffington Post and more. She knows her “stuff” and is definitely worth listening to!  This week our topics include:

  • Time saving beauty products
  • Fashion designer reinvention
  • Looking chic at a wedding
  • Kale facts and fiction
  • Lash primers
  • Flax seed
  • Wearing shimmery shadows
  • Benefits of beets

Have a great week!
