My Top 5 Cosy Reads for January! Check out my latest suggestions....

January is the perfect time to sit by the fire and enjoy a good book!


I know it's a bit late but...….Happy New Year everyone. I always find January cold and grey and a bit of a let down after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. One way I love to cheer myself up is to grab a hot drink and snuggle on the sofa with a good book. I get totally involved with the characters, imagine the settings and for a while I'm enjoying a different reality! With the weather we are being threatened with in the next week or so it seems like a pretty good way to spend my time!

Enjoy your precious reading time!

There IS life after menopause! The light at the end of the tunnel!

Hello!
Firstly let me apologise for the delay in getting this post out to you all! I have been away and have been sorting my "sh1t" out!

Since I got back from Montreux I had an amazing realisation. It was such a great realisation that I knew I had to share it with you!

revelation [rɛvəˈleɪʃ(ə)n] So what was this amazing revelation? Are you ready? I AM ON THE WINNING SIDE OF POST MENOPAUSE! I never thought I would feel like pre perimenopausal Janie ever again!

I was walking around Zurich on a very hot day when it first started to dawn on me that life was looking up. I realised that despite the intense heat, I wasn't over heating and had walked miles without feeling fatigued or , dare I say it, almost unwell like had hit me before. Whilst showering that evening to get ready for supper, I reflected on my day. It hit me that I'd not had any hot flushes all day and that , in fact, I had hardly had any for a while. I had previously taken my own advice on how to eat to avoid thos…

GUEST BLOGGER KAZ MOLLOY DISCUSSES THE "WOMB CANCER SCANDAL". A MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN. AGE IS NO DISCRIMINATOR.

Guest Blogger Kaz Molloy writes about the great “womb cancer scandal” for Savvy ‘n’ Sassy readers today. Her message is powerful, and a must read for all women, young and older alike. Her words are from the heart. She has survived womb cancer but it has left a profound effect on her life. Please read and please, please share. It is easy to hide and not look at articles like this because we get scared. There is no need to be scared. Knowledge is a life saver. Who wouldn't want to know about the most common but sadly under discussed symptoms  of womb cancer?
I was diagnosed with womb cancer at the end of Dec 2009, aged 46. I had never heard of it and knew nothing about it. I didn’t know that it was the most common gynaecological cancer and that it can affect women of all ages.
After my treatment ended I decided to do something about the lack of support out there for women who had been diagnosed with womb cancer and also about the lack of awareness there was about this cancer.
So in Apr…

LOOKING AFTER 0VER 50s SUMMER HAIR! sTAY GLOSSY NOT FLOSSY!

Hey!
How are you today? More to the point how's your hair?! mine has certainly been suffering form the lovely sunshine we have been having. I turn into Monica Geller in Barbados which to be fair isn't my best look!


Today's blog is all about keeping those locks of ours glossy and not flossy. Don't worry you don't to go through any so called "hair rituals" or anything. Its more about choosing the right products for the job and being savvy about looking after your mane!!

TOP TIPS!
1. We know to slather ourselves in UV protection to save our skin but how often do we remember that our hair also needs UV protection? Ever burnt your parting line?  You may have found out it can burn quickly and be rather painful. Now clearly we cant go to Aldi or the cinema, or wherever, with our hair greased up with suntan lotion. Fear not though, there are plenty of products on the market that can help.
 Try: Solait Head and Hair Protect SPF30. Its really affordable and quite brill…
