I loved sitting in the back seat while the kids navigated and drove us all around St George for the @stgeorgeparadeofhomes last weekend. It’s a favorite family tradition!!! And SO FUN to hang out with these cuties. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Missing @shey_allen ... who unfortunately had to spend her week in Hawaii. Poor girl. 🤣🌴🐠 . #over40style   #styleoftheday   #loveyourage   #styleatanyage   #agelessfashion   #easyfashion   #ldsmom   #instagramover50   #over50   #over50style   #midlifeblogger   #utahblogger   #over50women   #over50_style   #momlifestyle   #stgeorgeparadeofhomes   #familyweekend

🧗‍♀️ Are you tired of working out for hours and not seeing any results? • 🏋️‍♀️Do you walk around the gym aimlessly trying to figure out what to do or even how much you should be doing, and then just jump on the stair climber or elliptical for an hour because you don’t know what else to do?!? • ⛓ Let’s release you from that, and give you freedom! One of the best parts of the FASTer Way is that if you want to hike, do it! Want to swim, do it! Want to run, go for it! Want to go to the gym or stay home and workout, we’ve got you covered! • 🙌🏻 Did you know that you don’t need to workout for more than 30 min a day to see HUGE results?!? Not kidding! If you are spending more time than that in the gym, you are wasting your time sister! • 🗓 If you want to pare down your time in the gym, have more freedom, eat more food than you thought possible all without any pills, wraps, or shakes, stay tuned!

Happy Wine Wednesday! While we won’t be able to attend our weekly wine club tasting this afternoon, I imagine we’ll sneak in a glass of rose’ later this evening.

𝘼𝙨𝙝 𝙒𝙚𝙙𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙙𝙖𝙮 isn’t just about giving up up your favorite food or drink. It’s about giving up a thought, a behavior, or words so that you can lean in and be a better person. ⠀ ⠀ You do know that your words and actions can hurt...even “kill” relationships. What if the commandment not only referred to physically killing someone but also included emotionally and mentally “killing” someone? Would you behave differently? ⠀ ⠀ Hey we’re all sinners. And every single one of us gets a new cup of mercy each morning. Sip it. Don’t shotgun it. It’s not a Thank You Next kind of cup. It’s an intentional drink of cultivating kindness and spreading love. Are you in?

Yesterday I posted about taking time out to rest.⁣ ⁣ I know how important it is to take time for yourself because I spent many years raising my kids, working and serving – much of the time on empty. Not good!⁣ ⁣ Self-care is so important and developing good self-care routines are vital!⁣ ⁣ That being said I'm super excited to share just a few of my favorite Self-care rituals with you! ⁣ ⁣ 1. First thing in the morning..before my feet even hit the ground I drink a huge glass of water that is ready on my nightstand. And if you can-drink two!⁣ ⁣ 2. Once I've poured myself a beautiful cup of coffee in a cup that feels good in my hand... I head to my favorite chair and I have some quiet time. ⁣I pray. I meditate. I read. I stay still and I listen. And I breathe. On purpose. I wouldn't trade this time for anything. TRY IT!⁣ ⁣ 3. When I'm straightening the house, running errands, at the gym or working on a DIY project- I am usually always listening to a podcast or an audiobook. ⁣ ⁣ Ever heard that expression GARBAGE IN -GARBAGE OUT?! ⁣ ⁣ Well...I believe the opposite is true. Put POSITIVE IN and POSITIVE will come OUT! ⁣ ⁣ What is on the inside always splashes out when it gets bumped hard enough... So make sure that you are putting as much good stuff in as you possibly can. At any cost.⁣ ⁣ What are some of your favorite self-care rituals? Please share! xo⁣

Calling all fabulous women of a certain age— follow along @patina_life for real talk on all things midlife 🤍 Repost from @patina_life using @RepostRegramApp - It’s Wellness Wednesday! Check out today’s featured blog post, Menopause Brain- The Struggle is Real! I researched this topic because for a period of time, I genuinely thought there might be something wrong- I was becoming more forgetful and sometimes had trouble just finding a simple word (and words are my thing!). I was relieved to learn that I was not losing my mind! While not one of the symptoms we hear about as often as others, like hot flashes, brain fog is a very real issue for many of us during these transitional years. Estrogen plays a key role in so much of our functioning and overall health, and when it declines during these years it can impact brain function, among other things (like bone density, heart health, skin appearance, etc., which we’ll explore in future posts).

It really makes me come alive. I love the rehearsal process, the teamwork, being in the theatre, and hearing the audience's reaction.There is truly nothing like it for me. * * How about you? What is that one thing that makes you burst out of your skin and makes your pulse race just s little bit faster? * * They say the world needs more people doing what they love! * * So let's get to it friends!!!

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY TIPS! 💚 . . . I couldn’t agree more with this quote from @faceyogaexpert ! When writing my coauthored book @tinylifechanges ; my sister @laurendanielslifecoach and I knew that change could be daunting. Breaking it down into smaller steps really does help you to get to your goal. The trick is you just have to KEEP GOING! 🤗 . . . My motto is tiny changes really do lead to big results in better health. For me it’s a journey and it’s taken me about 5 years to get where I am today! I started by reducing toxins then removing inflammatory foods and improving my gut health. I’m now including more self care and Intermittent Fasting. I’m looking forward to seeing what else to include in my journey! . . . Which ONE THING can you start including in your day starting today? 💚

Collective consciousness and menopause... . . There are cultures, countries, and times when menopause is not seen as a problem. And consequently, the symptoms of menopause are low, if not inexistant. Interesting, isn’t it? Collective consciousness plays a big role in the way we embody menopause. Reseacher Dr Mary Jane Minkin (Yale Medical School), has revealed in her studies that “in societies where age is more revered and the older woman is the wiser and better woman, menopausal symptoms are significantly less bothersome”…”Where older is not better, many women equate menopause with old age, and symptoms can be much more devastating.” . In the US, the main complains reported are hot flashes and night sweat. In India, women seem to have very little disturbance. They rarely report hot flashes and night sweat for example. In Japan, the main complain reported is shoulder stiffness and hot flashes are rarely mentioned. In Hong Kong, joint and muscle problems are the most common symptoms….What causes such different experiences? Of course, lifestyle (food, sleep, exercise…) play a big role in hormonal balance. But there is another HUGE factor, and that’s the CULTURE that we find ourselves in when experiencing menopause. . . Not surprisingly… …in cultures where menopause is seen as a time of respect and freedom for women, the symptoms are minors. … in cultures where youth is valued among everything, and menopause seen as the end of it, the symptoms are the worst. We qualify then menopause as a disease and not a transformative, elevating experience. And powerful commercial interests fuel this industry of “you are sick, you are old, you are not valuable anymore”. . . 🙌 Let’s not let the collectiveconsciousness consciousness define how we should feel. Don’t let the collective mindset manifest in your body! . 🙏 @twentyonetonnes for letting me use one of their beautiful baskets !

The word "appreciate" has two meanings: Being grateful and to increase in value. Psychological research shows that that when we appreciate the good, good things in life appreciate. Taking time to be grateful for things both ordinary and profound has been shown to:⁠ • Increase levels of wellbeing and positive emotions⁠ • Boost happiness, determination, energy and optimism⁠ • Increase generosity⁠ • Improve sleep⁠ • Make it more likely that you'll exercise more⁠ • Reduce symptoms of illness⁠ Here an easy gratitude practice you can do everyday.

The sunshine vitamin! We all know that Vitamin D is good for our bones and our mood. Did you know that it is also: ☀️a potent inhibitor if cancer cell growth? ☀️normalizes your blood pressure? ☀️helps to reduce the development of precancerous colon polyps? The optimal dose for Vitamin D is 1000 IU daily. While taking a supplement is really great insurance, regular exposure to the sun stimulates the skins production of Vitamin D far beyond any supplement! Just a few minutes of sun exposure daily on your hands and arms will do your body wonders! Not too much though - excess sun worshiping cause other issues you don’t want!

I never ate beets as a child; in fact, I didn't really care for beets until recently. My mother never prepared them, and the only beets I really came in contact with were pickled.⠀ Now beets are one of my favorite vegetables. Both the root and the greens are nutritional superstars.⠀ ⠀ Variety is the spice of life. Eating a diet that includes a rainbow mix of fruits and vegetables is not only more interesting, but it is also the best way to optimize our health. This is because plant foods are rich in phytonutrients, the plant compounds that give vegetables and fruits their color and protect them from harm caused by their environment. Phytonutrients have similar effects on people — they act as antioxidants in the body, helping to eliminate free radicals that can damage cells.⠀ ⠀ It's essential to eat all the colors of the rainbow because the different colors in different plants contain unique phytonutrients. Eating them all provides a wide range of benefits, making variety relevant. Ideally, we would eat one serving a day from each plant color group. There are significant health benefits when we combine different colored produce together in meals. This creates a synergistic effect that allows the phyto-compounds and other nutrients to work together, enhancing their antioxidant benefits.⠀ ⠀ Get my recipe for Golden Borscht, Beet and Carrot Salad and Garlicky Sautéed Beet Greens at The Culinary Cure.⠀ ⠀ #eattherainbow   #beets   #nutrientdense   #2020vision   #healthyhacks   #mindbodygreen   #liveyourbestlifenow   #culinaryresilience   #wellnessblogger   #strongbodystrongmind   #liveyoungerlonger   #midlifeblogger   #habitsofhealth   #over60   #eatwellbewell   #healthyeatinghabits   #theculinarycure   #changeyourlifestyle   #biohack   #dailywellness   stayhealthymyfriends @womenshealthmag @melissasproduce

Absolutely loving this timeless, stretchy vegan leather jacket by @lyssenewyork - I received it to review and found I can even do crow pose in it. 😜 Check @lorrainecladish for that. 🌹 #liveinlysse   #prgifted   #style  

Unexpected midweek treat, breakfast at the brilliant Salt Water Cafe in Milford-on-Sea. Recently I’ve been on a mission to ‘eat the rainbow’ & this plate certainly hit the mark...6 colours down before 10am! And yes the beetroot hummus really was that colour....and delicious 😋! . . . . . . #eattherainbow   #colourfulfood   #beetrootpowder   #beetroothummus   #healthybreakfast   #midweektreat   #coastalliving   #eggsandavocado   #phytonutrients   #livingwell   #takingtimeforme   #momentsofcalm   #calmlifestyle   #asimplecalm   #slowfood   #slowliving   #midlifeblogger   #lifestylechange  

This is my version of 56.5. Yes, I count the months and when I start getting closer to the next number, I already say I'm that age. It's actually more accurate. 🤓 Of course I don't practice yoga in heels and wearing beautiful dresses. But it's nice to know that I can. 💃 A lifetime of running and dance and now 5 years of daily yoga have super strengthened my ankles, or I could not pull this off. But where strong ankles and good balance help me is in daily life. Just last week I tripped twice because (and I'm embarrassed to admit) I was walking and looking at my phone updating my stories as I attended an event at @fixxationbtq. The recovery and avoidance of a fall was nothing short of miraculous. I vowed not to walk and type again, lol, but I also realized how I could have broken an ankle, a leg, an arm, and I didn't. After a certain age, body work isn't just about looking good, for me it's ALL about preserving my quality of life for as long as possible. @taoporchonlynch100 just passed away at 101 (incidentally the same age as when my beloved grandmother died a year and a half ago. I aspire, if not to reach her age, at least to be as mobile as I can while I'm here. I don't do this only for me, I do it for my loved ones, especially my children. How are you moving now so you can be active and mobile as you grow older? Because, trust me, it creeps up on you! 😜 #fitnessinstructor   #yogainstructor   #fitnessforlife   #dancerpose   #yogainheels

Have you ever had a single piece of jewelry inspire an outfit? 🖤🖤🖤 I purchased this necklace several years ago. And since then it’s been the inspiration for numerous outfits- both dressy and casual. 🖤🖤🖤 My latest blog post (link above in profile) highlights other outfits featured with this necklace. 🖤🖤🖤

Reward yourself for how far you’ve come, be kind to yourself, and remember you’re doing the BEST you can. 🙏🏻 . . My fitness programme and eating programme has gone astray the past week, although I’ve lost a further 3.5 lbs, my energy levels have struggled. I had a stressful weekend and food poisoning on Monday and Tuesday, so eating and excercise has had to take a back seat. At first I felt quite down that I’ve not managed a good week, but then I thought, all things considered I’ve managed the BEST I could and I’m not going to emotionally beat myself up for a little lapse in routine. . . . This photo was taken for my Agency portfolio last Autumn, wearing this gorgeous wrap dress from @marksandspencer .... but it reminds me to REWARD myself every now and again for trying my BEST. I LOVE flowers, and usually it’s my Fiancé that makes sure I always have them, but after the week I’ve had, I’ll be buying myself an extra bunch to bring some summer into the Barn. . . . It’s important to be kind to yourself, reward yourself for those little victories and milestones, remind yourself you’re NOT SUPER WOMAN and you’re doing the best you can. I’ve made some slip ups this past week, I’ve faltered, but the MOST important thing is, I get back UP and keep going. 🙏🏻❤️💃 . .

If you want improved sleep and calmer mornings, get off your phone or gadget 30 minutes before bedtime; and don’t get back on them until 30 minutes after waking up. I promise you can do this and it will make a big difference. We have become slaves to our phones and they are screwing up our circadian cycle, distracting us from human interaction and messing up our sleep.⠀ ⠀ #offlineatbedtime   #fitfebruary   #2020vision   #healthyhacks   #mindbodygreen   #liveyourbestlifenow   #februarygoals   #culinaryresilience   #wellnessblogger   #strongbodystrongmind   #liveyoungerlonger   #midlifeblogger   #habitsofhealth   #over60   #eatwellbewell   #healthyeatinghabits   #theculinarycure   #changeyourlifestyle   #biohack   #dailywellness   #stayhealthymyfriends

Hello all! I usually use my Instagram platform to talk about my life as a ‘Midlife Mum’ and to share ways you can bring a little bit of ‘Glowology’ into life as you age - as you know, positive ageing is my passion. ✨ Today, I’d like to bring a more professional touch to the gram 🤓 (hmmm a nerd emoji isn’t a very good start at trying to be professional - but that’s the thing with me - what you see is what you get!) Anyway, in case you didn’t know about my professional background - theres a little bio below. My writing credentials are pretty 🔥 if I do say so myself (many others agree and I’m happy to share testimonials) so if you (or anybody you know) is looking for a writer to bring some Glowology sparkle to your business or brand - blogs, marketing material, newsletters or social media and website content - get in touch, I’d love to chat. . ⭐️BIOGRAPHY⭐️ . I am a well-established lifestyle writer - former beauty editor of Woman’s Own and Cosmopolitan and current weekly columnist at Love It! Magazine writing about life as a Midlife Mum. During my 30-year career, I have written for some of the UK’s top publications including The Sunday Times Style Magazine, The Financial Times How to Spend It and most recently Prima and This Morning TV – editing 98 lifestyle pages for their Live Show Guide. . ⭐️My passion for pro-ageing and an interest in everything that helps make a woman feel her happiest and look her best as she ages, led to me creating Glowology an award nominated wellbeing blog for the 50 plus who are on the same journey as me and looking for inspiration and positivity through the trials and triumphs of everyday life. . ⭐️As well as editorial commissions, I am delighted to be working on some wonderful PR and social media projects with great clients in the beauty, aesthetics, fitness and wellbeing sectors. I believe my authentic writing style and in-depth knowledge of what makes midlife women tick, allows me to successfully portray the correct tone of voice for clients and brands. ✨ 📸 Matt Monfredi for Prima Magazine

Today is an active wear day. The reason is not because I’m doing exercise, it’s because I’m about to go to the doctor to have cortisone injections in my hips to treat the bursitis. I will have to spend the rest of my day and tomorrow doing as little as possible. Movement will make it spread through the body instead of localizing it in the joint. Frustrating but necessary as the pain has become unbearable. This body is feeling much older than it is 😓👵🏼. So the reason for me choosing active wear today is so that I can be comfortable for an afternoon lying on the couch watching Netflix 👀.

*New blog post - One Year On...* Somehow, amongst this meno madness, life and living, I still manage to ramble on my blog. I’ve learned so much this last year and connected with amazing women, all supporting each other. I can’t thank you enough for your advice, love and kindness, particularly on days when I would love to stay in bed and shut out the world. Big love 💕🙌🏼😘 @perimenopost @karen_kenning @gemma_and_emma @menopause_doctor @lizearleme @mrseaglen @_lydiaphillips @dianedanzebrink @whentheclockstrikesmidlife @pausitivity_knowyourmenopause #womensupportingwomen   #midlifeblogger   #menopause  

Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour. Walt Whitman Forever is composed of nows. Emily Dickinson There is much talk these days of living in the now, of being present. It is somewhat inaccurate to suggest that we actually could be anywhere other than where we are, that we actually could be anyplace other than 'the present moment.' We are where we are, absolutely and irrefutably. What is being spoken to, of course, is where is our attention? Is it here, in this moment and in these surroundings? Am I attending to my experience in the here and now? Or am I in speculation - the hashing and rehashing of my past, trying to make it come out differently; or the endless creation of hypothetical tomorrows, trying to get a handle on things before I get there, trying to control my future to lessen my fear and find a possibility of happiness. We begin by taking a conscious breath - to remind ourselves that we have a body, that we are something other than our thinking - and then we check in with our senses, one by one: • Can I feel my bottom against the chair, my feet on the ground, the warmth of the sun, the breeze against my cheek, the fabric of my shirt against my arm? • What can I smell? • What can I taste? • What am I hearing? • What am I seeing? We can go through our five senses in about half a minute's time to become grounded in the present; and we can do this anytime we find ourselves in worry or speculation. Whenever we find ourselves in the habit of thought. Today I will walk through my five senses to become present to the world, knowing that as I become present to the world, the world and all the possibilities it contains will become present to me. // via Jeff Kober

For my shopping trip yesterday I wore a Zara camel masculine coat and red straight trousers. The pop of animal print was provided by my recently gifted leather @farbotka.ie Sashka bag with its interchangeable cheetah flap. Gifted item/ad

“What’s your point Vanessa??” Austin Powers . . Feeling all the 70’s vibes in what has to be my fave @adriftclothing dress ever!!! That print is soooo retro and it’s a cool twist on a shirt dress. Comes with a self tie belt which I’ll post another time , actually prefer it belt less, the cut is simple yet stylish. Hope you had a beauty blowing a gale here today🥂 .

Popped the boots on today as I’m headed to Victoria for a few days and looking forward to a few cooler days! You just never know with Melbourne weather tho so of course I’ve thrown in a few summer pieces too.😂 ◻️ Wearing all oldies apart from the skirt which is new @hm - loving all the soft ruching detail, it’s super comfortable, and fun to dress up or down with sneakers too. ◻️ Shirt: @melapurdie (NC) Skirt: @hm (C) Boots: @tonybianco (NC) Bag: @sabastyle (NC) ◻️ . . . . . . . . #over50fashion   #over50   #50andfabulous   #over50women   #loveyourage   #50plusstyle   #midlifewomen   #40plusfashion   #50plusfashion   #midlifestyle   #over50andfabulous   #midlifeblogger   #agelessstyle   #styleover50   #over50_style   #50pluswomen   #fashionover40   #thisismystyle   #styleover40   #styleover30   #whatimwearing   #stylechic   #momstylelife   #casualchicstyle   #fashionablemom   #spotmystyle   #realmumstyle   #stylishmama   #whatweworeonwednesday  

Are you a Gen X woman? You are born at the height of sexual revolution and Rock n' Role ere between 1965 and 1980! Do you feel left out, ignored by society and media? Your feelings are on point! Our generation of women have been long neglected and undervalued. That never stopped us from becoming leaders and entrepreneurs.

At my retreats you have no choice but to pay attention to you. You need it. You deserve it. Yes you are worth it and more. This is your time! Send me a dm if you’d like to find out about the next cities lined up for my retreats.

“You left college with one class left to graduate?” “Did you know you only had one class left?” “Why don’t you just go take it?” These are just a few of the questions I’ve been asked over the past 30 years about why I didn’t graduate.⁣ 🤷‍♀️ ⁣ A Lot can happen in a year... and I’m in the final weeks of completing a Comminications class and finally receiving a Bachelor of Science in Business from Oregon State University!! 🎉👏 ⁣ As much as I was dreading taking this public speaking class, I’ve found it to be VERY applicable to where I am in life. I’ve been able to explore a few topics I’m really passionate about, Like the Amazon effect on retail, ageism in the workplace, and why brands should use women that are 45+ for their marketing and strategy.⁣ ⁣ You know, timing is everything. If I had taken this class earlier, I may not have appreciated how much it’s going to help me grow my business. Take on challenges WHEN YOU’RE READY, and the payoff will be huge!⁣ ⁣ What challenges are you considering taking on right now? Share below!⁣ ⁣ Repost @shopskout #oregonstateuniversity   #osualumni
