    My Journey To Natural Silver Hair

    1 comment /
    Author: Melinda Tickel  I first connected with Melinda via instagram after discovering her profile Silver Style Life. More and more women over 50 are feeling comfortable going grey, but to truly end ageism it needs to be accepted at all ages. So I found it refreshing discovering a profile and blog that explored going grey at a younger age. I appreciated Mel's open and positive attitude, as well as her supportive, inspiring approach and am delighted to be sharing her story. There is a stigma in society that suggests that women who have natural grey hair are considered old, unattractive...

    "I'm Having A 'Senior Moment' "- Recognising How We Self Stereotype When It Comes To Aging

    5 comments /
    Author: Louise Pendry  Following on from her fascinating piece on how sisterhood can help with ageing, university lecturer in Psychology (and the-Bias-Cut.com model!) Louise Pendry has written another deeply insightful article, this time addressing how we self-stereotype when it comes to age. Open, personal and honest, this piece is well worth a read. Enjoy!   “I’m having a ‘senior moment,’” “I’m not the woman I was” and other ways we tell ourselves that we are getting old and it sucks (when maybe it doesn’t) In a previous post I talked about how the online support of women in a similar phase...

    Author: Eileen Willett I was first introduced to Eileen, co-founder of cooling nightwear label Cucumber, a couple of months ago by Tracey of Fighting Fifty. As someone myself who has suffered from night sweats since I was 19, I know too well how uncomfortable waking up in a pool of sweat is. Unable to find another solution I've always relied on a fan on full blast and wearing very little. So when Tracey told me about a new nightwear label that specialises in pieces that will keep you cool, I was intrigued.  When I met Eileen, and her co-founder Nancy...

    Grey Is The New Black

    Author: Jayne Mayled I first met Jayne in May, when we bonded over our mutual love of style and wanting to encourage women to feel great about themselves at every age. Both of us agreed that fighting ageism is about offering women a choice to dress, look and feel however they want, without external pressure, and we have both been inspired to start business with this in mind. Jayne doesn't believe that every woman should have to go grey in order to embrace their age, but wants to support and empower women who decide it is right for them, through offering a beautiful...

    How I dropped the ageing cloak of invisibility and found a much needed sisterhood after 50

    6 comments /
    Author: Louise Pendry  I first connected with Louise on our Ageism Is Never In Style forum. We got chatting after Louise particularly enjoyed my article "It's Ok Not To Go Grey" and appreciated my 'refreshing' even handed approach to considering stereotypes, women, identity and ageing. As a psychologist researching these areas, with a particular focus on going grey, it has been fascinating chatting with Louise, to understand more both from a psychologist's perspective, and her personal one. In particular we got onto talking about groups on Facebook, how they have different tones, and the benefits they can bring. Somewhat surprisingly...
