BAM! Getting Better – Bolder – With Age

You made it happen.  THANK YOU to 150 of the most creative, friendly, and fun women who spent 2 days in Las Vegas at BAM.

What is BAM? Watch this

Together we were able to learn, laugh, mix and mingle with new friends and old, but the greatest accomplishment was we were able to open the minds of major consumer brands, who brought sponsorship dollars to our conference. We also got to spend a few days in the sun!

Our midlife attendees had the confidence to prove that using the connectivity of social media, combined with real in-person relationship building, is beneficial to brands – even if they have spent their marketing dollars elsewhere in the past.

Our results were more than we could have promised, (we trended on Twitter nationally  both days) the connections between attendees was life changing, and the engagement for the brands proved that midlife women are powerful voices for brands to work with.

Marketing to midlife women is priceless. We respect, appreciate, and are willing to build relationships with brands that in return understand us, and we are truly ready to engage, listen and adapt.

Below are blog snippets from just a few of the wonderful women who attended. Each blog post is worth a read if you truly want to understand the heart, soul, and power of this amazing group. BAM!

BAM Bloggers at Midlife is the first blogging conference focusing on midlife women bloggers. Anne Parris and Sharon Greenthal of Midlife Boulevard have partnered with Teresa Kindred of the Nanahood Years and Beth Rosen of Boomfluent Media to create this event after the midlife blogging community asked for a place where they could get together and learn from each other and from experts.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding – Raw Boomfluent

I have had a lot of requests for the recipe for the Avocado Chocolate Pudding – enjoy and let me know if you try it – Here is what you will need

Ingredients

• 1 ripe avocado, skin and seed removed
• 4 dates
• 3-4 tablespoon cacao/cocoa powder
• 2 tablespoons pure Agave syrup
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup water + more as needed
• 1 dash sea salt

Blend all ingredients in blender until creamy scrapping down the sides as needed to incorporate everything. Add more water as needed for desired consistency. Taste for flavor and adjust accordingly. You can serve at room temp but I find it’s best when chilled in the refrigerator. Store leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a couple days.

3 summer jewelry trends will make us “Love our Necks”!

Hey Beautiful Boomers we don’t love our necks – but today’s jewelry fashion trends are a gift to us boomers. The best news is you can find some fun funky finds and it won’t cost you a fortune.

Tip #1 – Longer Leaner Looking Neckline

 

For a more lean look and no need to hide your neckline, go for one of the long drop Y strands. This look can extend as far down the front as you feel comfortable, and it creates a tall, thinning look. You can mix and match strands you find, or easy run into any store and grab this look.

Tip #2 – Frame your face

Keep it clean and simple and frame your face. Choose a few strands and drop around your neck. Add a few charms if you want to add some texture to the feel. Lot’s of great selections in the stores now, mix and match colors and thickness.

Tip #3 Balance your Bust

Love that you can draw attention away from your bust or to it depending on your choice. So many choices when it come to the feel of the new chunky styles. You can accent any look, balance around the collarbone. Turn on any news station and see how the anchors are wearing this style. Again it’s a trend so have fun and don’t spend lots of cash, choose the style that brightens up your outlook and outfit.
