Second Lives Club is overjoyed to be hosting Fashion Flash this week!  In the runup to the holidays we have much on our plate and our minds.  These lifestyle bloggers will ease the strain with shopping (consignment shops and unique gifts for men), beauty (faster hair drying, merry berry look and a drugstore cosmetic swap), health (holiday stress and your skin, alcohol effects on your health, low-fat myths and control of your sex life) and how to project good overall body image!

It's Fashion Flash Monday with a range of topics important to second lifers.

We are excited to announce that Second Lives Club has joined Fashion Flash, a select group of lifestyle blogs for women in midlife. Fashion Flash covers a wide range of topics including health, skin care, fitness, fashion, make-up and reinvention and is one of the largest forty plus women communities on the web.  Visit any Fashion Flash site on Monday mornings to get a unique perspective on areas of interest to women living their second lives.

This week the site Moving Free With Mirabai is hosting Fashion Flash.  Some of this week's posts are on osteoporosis, thinning hair, spring colors and easy exercises.  And I think you will find Barbara Shaiman's life as instructive as we did!  Enjoy these latest Fashion Flash posts.

New Year, New You, New Second Lives Club

Happy New Year, and it is truly a new one for We’re changing platforms in more ways than one!  As we come up with some new directions to enhance our community, this blog will continue with some guest posts but be more focused on identifying and promoting exemplary 2nd Life role models.  We want to feature one a week and, in fact you can help.  If you know of a 50+ woman who is in the process of establishing or already living her second life that you think stands out above the rest, let us know and we will feature her.  

Women taking bigger leaps and risks can make for livelier reading but these stories don't have to be about major makeovers. They don't even have to be about reaching the end goal but rather about taking those first baby steps.  And they don't have to be about saving the world, they can be about having a personal adventure. "Reinvention is really ambiguity fused with self confidence", as was redefined for us last night by Jan Pauley promoting her new book on this subject at the 92St. Y in Manhattan.  

Some of you may remember the profile we did on Susan who left her career as a film maker to write her first novel and start a nonprofit organization. And there's Marsha who left corporate America to build her own career counseling company. Maggie was a linguist before joining a real estate venture catering to empty nesters. Now let us introduce you to Annabel Davis who spent 20 years as a police constable in the UK and is now an in demand model and actress at age 60? Want to know how she did it? Read on…
