Inspiring this week and latest 40+ Stylish news

Night festival Singapore 2012

Night festival in Singapore

Each year  the Singapore night festival is held. Important city buildings are lid up in special ways and there are various performances around the city. This article will be illustrated with a few images of 2 performances I witnessed. They were a feast for the eyes to see and were surrounded by loud vivacious music. When I look back at these images now, I can’t help but wonder how much fun it would be to be the actual performers and swing around the air on ropes! 

Changes on the website

I’m not sure if this is inspiring, but you will have noticed some changes on the website this week. There are now 3 columns and I have added a ‘most popular’ page. Ads have become a bit more prominent, which I hope you don’t mind. In order for me to spend a lot of time on this site and create the best online magazine for 40+ women that I possibly can, I need to generate enough income from this site to justify that. Some of you may have to refresh the page to see the new design correctly as your browser cache may still serve the old version. Please let me know if you experience any issues with the new site design, and please accept my apologies as I “play around” a bit more to test out what works and what doesn’t. If you like to advertise on this site, then I welcome your enquiries. For more details visit my advertising page.

Fantastic pics, Syl! Too bad I had to miss the festival this year:-(. And great, versified post as well, ofcourse;-).

Thanks Anja

Beautiful photos. Must have been awesome to see. Unlike you, I would not want to be one of those performers in the air. I bet it hurts and that it takes lots of practise to make it look so easy.
I will click through to your links later this weekend as I have to go and pick up my yellow bag, meet a friend in another city, do some winter shopping and have a birthday visit tomorrow. My weekend is filled.
Oh and I like what you do with the site.
