Websites For and By Woman Who Have Been Around The Block A Few Times

One thing we noticed as we got older is that it became more of a challenge to find websites and online communities that spoke to us. For some reason It was like people thought that once you reached 40 you stopped logging on or caring about certain things which could not be further from the truth.

Mature women share information online.

Mature women code.

Mature women blog about beauty, fashion and style and we do a darn good job at it all.

One of our goals is to develop the ultimate list of sites specifically for and/or by the seasoned woman. If you know a site that should be on our radar, please share it with us in the comments below. In turn, we will update this post when we come across a site that excite us. Let’s prove the naysayers wrong.

We’ll start with a list of our go-to blogs. More coming soon!

Girls of a Certain Age – For women 40 and above who are looking for great style on the internet.

That’s Not My Age – The grownup guide to great style.

Advanced Style – A project devoted “to capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set.”

Accidental Icon – Lyn Slatter is hands down one of the most stylish women online.

Bag and a Beret – Style. Comedy. Art. Melanie Kobayashi is someone you want to have brunch with on a lovely Spring day.

Celebrating the Older Woman and Giving Her A Voice

“Your 40s are good.  Your 50s are great.  Your 60s are fab.  And 70 is f*@king awesome!”  ~Helen Mirren


As the team behind the Lifestyle Beauty Network, we’ve been gathering frequently to discuss the future of the LBN. One point that came up recently was our experience and confidence as mature adults, and as we were talking about it, we had a collective epiphany.


“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.”~Coco Chanel


We are a culture that often has a very narrow view of beauty and lifestyles. There are common ideas of what people should look like, have and do at various stages in their life. We want to leave those outdated idea’s in the dust and honor the aging process by highlighting products, services, and individuals that help the seasoned woman have the life they want and deserve.


“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”~Mark Twain


So we are on a new mission. That mission is to celebrate the older woman and to amplify her voice.

Change is Good – The Return of the LBN

After an exciting first year where we connected with many wonderful people, we took time off to think about what we wanted to do with the LBN in 2017. Often when you have an initial idea, it changes into what it was meant to be further down the road. So the evolution of the LBN being mapped out by our devoted team is refreshing and welcomed.

While we’re putting the finishing touches on our new direction, please feel free to watch some of our LeMetric videos below to learn more about us and stay tuned.
