This week Inka of Glamour Granny Travels is hosting Fashion Flash. Right now she is hosting guests in Jordan and her internet was fading as she was uploading this week’s Fashion Flash. She worked very hard to get Fashion Flash online and I know you will enjoy it. Inka spent most of her professional life as an international attorney and decided to change her life and file articles as a travel writer. Her life arc is like so many women these days. We don’t have a single path, but a journey of starts and turns as new careers and new challenges shape our lives. And I wouldn/t have it any other way.
This is just about the best fashion/beauty book for women over 50. It is actually three books in one:
- It illustrates more than 25 makeovers that are both beautiful and realistic
- The women featured in the makeovers are talented, dynamic and inspirational.
- Offers 10 info packed segments on health, fitness, fashion and nutrition written by well established experts
Beautiful Encore is a comprehensive look at the second half of our lives. As young girls we see our lives in a series of universal steps — high school, college, marriage, children, mother of the bride and grandma. And then well laid out plans come to a dead stop. There is no map for the second half of our lives. Beautiful Encore is a well written, informative and empowering guide for this uncharted territory.
Author Anne Reizer genuinely wants to help women. For example too many makeover guides show a “before ” women in a limp pony tail and sweat pants. The “after” women show full hair and make-up in cocktail attire. But in Beautiful Encore the makeovers offer a variety of looks for each woman.
The profiles of women provide wonderful answers to the question” what do I do with the rest of my life”? It shares the different life journeys that offer real time options. From nurse to trvel agent, insurance exec to master gardener and special needs teacher to ceramic artist, this book profiles the arcs of satisfying lives after fifty.To bottom line it, Beautiful Encore will be my go-to gift for my gal pals in 2016.
