Let’s face it, most beauty trends for fashion shows are for just that, show. They can be very extreme or very minimalist (so you actually look at the clothes and not the models). However there are some beauty and hair trends from NYFW Fall ’17 that actually make it to real life from these shows. Just like you would not…
New York Fashion Week is always an explosion of trends and this season was no exception. Yet, as we age less and less seems wearable. Lauren and Carol of Fountain Of 30 have taken a long hard look at the week that was and have narrowed down the Top 10 NYFW Fall ’17 trends women over 40 can wear next fall.
This past February 3 marked the 15th Annual National Wear Red Day which was started back in 2003 to bring national attention to the undisputed fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women (it kills six times more women than breast cancer), and to raise awareness of women’s heart health.
In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss kids and parenting. Lauren has two young sons and Joan has no children but is a great “aunt” and dog mom. She also would still like to have kids even though Lauren has warned her it’s exhausting when you are in your 40’s..
Yes Michelle Smith’s Milly NYFW Fall ’17 was called “Fractured” since that’s how she obviously feels about the state of affairs in this country since the recent election. I for one hate mixing politics with fashion so I am not going to go there. You could tell Smith was afraid to show the bright colors she is usually fond of and to me that was a delightful surprise!
On Friday February 12, Alexander Wang’s NYFW Fall ’17 No After-Party theme took to the runway in Harlem. I’m not really sure that was the name of the collection, but we will call it that since “No After-Party” was printed on the bottom of the Alexander Wang invitation, and if there is one thing Wang is known…

I’m supposed to be at the first day of New York Fashion Week. but instead I am snowed in my house with the kids. So obviously I am looking forward to spring which can’t get here soon enough (actually I thought it was here yesterday since it hit 65 degrees). As Carol and I were discussing me missing the shows we got to talking about spring fashion and the conversation (as it usually does) turned to shoes. Both of us are excited about the lace up ballet flats trend that is going to be huge for spring!
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about the ones you love, but besides my husband there are a couple other men I love who are really important in my life…the men responsible for my hair. Ask any woman over the age of 35 you know and she will tell you her colorist and the person who cuts her hair are as vital as breathing. In my case they are both men and they both work at Sassoon Salon in NYC.
Come winter there is nothing that warms me better than soup. I can’t get enough. I will buy soups but I prefer to make them myself so I know exactly what ingredients are being used. Even though this lemon and spinach lentil soup is vegan, I am not, but I know many who are so I find myself making this soup quite a bit.
In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss the lengths they would go to in the pursuit of looking younger.
I have read women ingest anywhere between 3.7 pounds to 7 pounds of lipstick (that includes balms) in their lifetime (various reports all have different numbers). Yet if you think about it, ingesting anything you put on your lips that isn’t organic or somewhat healthy is kinda…gross. Once I learned I was allergic to metals and preservatives (which is in a lot of lipsticks and balms) I started researching healthier options. So in this post we are going to take a look at organic lip balms.
Will it truly matter if the groundhog sees his shadow today? This winter has been particularly mild! I just pray this post doesn’t jinx this climate change because I have been able to enjoy one of my favorite coat styles long past fall. I’m talking about the Masculine Overcoat which typically spends the majority of the winter in the back of my closet as I tend to favor chose warmer fabrics like down and shearling in order to combat freezing cold weather.
Every early January I get barraged with Valentine’s Day gift ideas from every angle. I don’t know about you but I tend to like the unusual and unexpected. Anyone can buy a box of chocolates and a dozen roses (I don’t mind either), but why not put a little more thought into your gift?
Between Joan and I we have had two marriages and one divorce. It’s not fun. Well divorce isn’t fun and often times marriage isn’t either. These are the life events real women go through. Divorce isn’t just for reality TV fodder anymore. Marriage is hard work! Here Joan and I discuss what we have experienced. Hopefully you can relate.
