Beauty, Style and Empowerment for Older Women

By Tricia Cusden

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Beautifully illustrated guide to feeling stylish, healthy and happy by online beauty guru and founder of Look Fabulous Forever Tricia Cusden

"We are the first generation to expect to live into advanced old age, so my intention is to show you the very best ways to achieve the goal of a stylish, healthy, happy and satisfying 'final great adventure.'"

At the age of 65 Tricia was fed up of being overlooked by the beauty industry. Why shouldn't she get dressed up, apply some lovely make up and feel good about how she looks? So she decided to take matters into her own hands by founding Look Fabulous Forever, a make-up company aimed at older women and began a vlog. She has swiftly become a beacon of empowerment for an overlooked generation.

Living the Life More Fabulous will be an irresistible guide to feeling great, whatever your age. It will cover topics from beauty, confidence, health and give advice on how to live an engaged life and keeping an active mind. Above all it will encourage women to live their lives to the full.

Biographical Notes

Tricia Cusden is blazing the trail as one of the older generation of British beauty vloggers. A retired management training consultant from South West London, she launched her 'make-up for older women' YouTube tutorials out of frustration that her age group was being ignored by the beauty industry. She launched an online beauty brand, Look Fabulous Forever, in 2013 at the age of 68 and hasn't looked back.

Stalking God

Anjali Kumar
Authors:
Anjali Kumar

Like millions of us, Anjali Kumar, a lawyer for Google, was not religious. But when her daughter was born, Anjali felt compelled to find God-or at least some form of enlightenment-that she could someday impart to her daughter.Knowing that she couldn't simply Google an answer to What is the meaning of life?, Anjali set out on a spiritual pilgrimage, and nothing was off limits. She headed to Peru to learn from shamans, practiced transcendental meditation, convened with angels, and even worked with a medium to speak with the dead-all while searching for answers to life's most universal questions: Why are we here? What happens when we die? Is there a God?

The Self-Care Project

Jayne Hardy
Authors:
Jayne Hardy

Everything you need to know about self-care; what it is, why it's important, why it's such a struggle and how to integrate it into day-to-day life.There's a damaging misconception in society that putting ourselves first is an act of selfishness. But self-care is not just a millennial buzzword. Without the restorative power of self-care, how will we ever escape the vicious circle where we're sick and fed-up of feeling sick and fed-up? Self-care is a tool, accessible to us all, which helps us to take responsibility for our own happiness - our physical, emotional, psychological and social needs. Jayne Hardy, founder and CEO of The Blurt Foundation, argues that it is the best preventative measure available to us to combat overwhelmedness, stress and ill health, in our hectic, modern world. The Self-Care Project is for those who have been feeling off-kilter for a while but have not been able to put the finger on the 'why'. It is a no-nonsense, practical journey to help you do just that. It'll walk you through the case for self-care (why it's so darn important), why it isn't selfish at all, help you explore what self-care means for you, what your obstacles might be and provide advice on how to chisel out daily space for self-care in a practical, achievable and realistic way.(p) Orion Publishing Group 2017

The Company of Trees

Thomas Pakenham
Authors:
Thomas Pakenham

'Thomas Pakenham could convert a property developer into a tree-hugger ... The book's photographs are as beautiful and glossy as conkers; anecdote and information fall like autumn mast ... I closed the book and went to look at my own trees. Thanks to the joyful hours spent in its author's company, I saw them anew. His book is a plum among autumn's publishing fruits' John Lewis-Stempel, author of MeadowlandThomas Pakenham, indefatigable champion of trees, narrates a story of exploration and discovery, and of life-cycles that are longer than our own. Lavishly illustrated, The Company of Trees recounts his personal quest to establish a large arboretum at Tullynally, his forays to other tree-filled parks and plantations, his often hazardous seed-hunting expeditions, and his efforts to preserve magnificent old trees and historic woodlands.The book is structured in the form of a travel diary. Almost every chapter shelters stories about the life of his large trees. He takes us on a tour of Tullynally's demesne and its trees, evaluating the condition of the oaks, alders, ash and limes that were among the first plantings.He travels to the Tibetan border in search of a magnolia (magnolias are Pakenham's particular passion), to Eastern Patagonia to see the last remaining giants of the Monkey Puzzle tree, while the first of the Chinese-inspired gardens at Tullynally was planted entirely with seeds from south-west China. An expedition to Tibet's Tsangpo Gorge goes awry only to lead to a fruitful exploration of the Rongchu Valley, which yields more than 100 bags of seeds, including the Tibetan golden oak, the Tsangpo cypress and blue-stemmed maples. All of the collected trees and plants are thriving at Tullynally. Whether writing about the terrible storms breaking the backs of majestic trees which have stood sentinel for hundreds of years, or a fire in the 50-acre peat bog on Tullynally which threatens to spread to 'the main commercial spruce-woods to the west of the peat bog'; his fear of climate change and disease, or the sturdy young sapling giving him hope for the future, the book is never less than enthralling. Pakenham is a passionate writer, educator and entertainer, and brings both wit and wisdom to a subject of universal appeal.
