Have you had a chance to look at the forum this week? Lots of stylish looks being uploaded there, from which you see a sample above.
Some of our members are also struggling with lack of confidence or frustration with gaining weight. Something many 40+ women go through. So Greetje started a new topic on why we insist on talking ourselves down and how we can stop this process. Do you suffer from poor self esteem or poor body image? Or did you used to, but overcame it? You may like to take a look and either get support or offer your solutions to the issue!
Fashion shows in Milan and Paris
The best was definitely saved for last! I especially loved Valentino, Issey Miyake, Akris and Givenchy, who all had great outfits for women over 40. Check out all the best looks on my Spring / summer 2013 trends board.
Around the web
The Daily Mail reports on how women over 50 have become very knowledgeable about their style and what looks best on them. Women over 50 have become very savvy shoppers!
Another article in the daily mail gives 7 rules for grown-up style. Do you agree with these rules?
This is not fashion related but some of my fellow blogger readers may find this interesting.
I’m off to Melbourne, Australia next week.
As you may know, I take being a blogger very seriously. I hope to grow 40+ Style into an even larger blog, magazine and community that aims to help, educuate, inspire and entertain women over 40 in their quest to look and feel the best they can be. In order for me to do this and justify the large amount of time I spend on creating the site, it needs to generate income. I do this through advertising, affiliate links and sponsored posts occassionally (which are always fully disclosed!) and I’m considering adding an e-book.
There is still a lot to be learned on how to do this effectively. That is why I decided to invest in attending the Problogger conference this year. Although there are always a lot of events organised in the US (which some day I hope to attend as well) there is nothing being organised here in Singapore and Australia was the closest high quality conference I could find. It is organised by one of the most respected and successful bloggers on the Internet (Darren Rowse from Problogger) and it is a great opportunity for me to network with other bloggers and learn how I can make 40+Style even better and more profitable. I’m actually really looking forward to meeting some of my favorite bloggers!
Want to virtually attend the conference too?
Although the conference was sold out very quickly, there is still an opportunity for you to be virtually there. All the presentations will be taped and you will be able to access more than 21 hours of teaching. You’ll get audio recordings of all 21 sessions of training at the event and hear from bloggers like Darren Rowse, Chris Guillebeau, Sarah Wilson and many more on how to build profitable blogs.
You will also be able to view all slides from each of the sessions at the event – yours to keep as PDFs – and participate in an exclusive live webinar with Darren Rowse on October 17th for a post-event Q&A session – this will also be recorded for you to listen to again later.
So if you’re keen to be virtually there with me and learn what I learn then get your virtual ticket today (affiliate link). Be quick as the price is still low now and will go up soon!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
