It’s delicious, inspiring, and most of all, motivational. Yes, motivational is the word. House of Fifty is a brand-new e-magazine, that promises to rock your world every time.
I love, love, love, the welcoming editorial by founding editor and interior designer Janell Beals. She answers the question that popped up in my mind when I first read the magazine’s title.
House of Fifty? Hmmm. What an interesting name. Is it for 50-somethings?
It is actually founded by a woman who turned 50, a very talented, and chic woman, whose passion fills the pages of the magazine, and inspires us all to be optimistic and beautiful inside-out more than anything.
House of Fifty’s Fall issue is also as exciting as the premier issue. Beals opening editorial is as genuine, motivating, and inspiring as the first one. This is the first time – probably in my life – that a magazine strikes a deeper chord than just its layout and content.
This is a magazine with a soul!
I used to think my society was the harshest with women, but I am shocked that Beals, coming from a Western society, is actually sharing the fact that turning 50 meant less opportunities “out there.” House of Fifty is actually her way of opening new doors for herself and others.
I am still one and a half decades away from reaching my 50’s. I pray that by then I will at least have half the zeal, courage, and leadership quality that Beals enjoy.
Beals is an influencer, a teacher, and she is an example of good leadership. Her influence can reach far beyond decor, style and DIY tips. She can touch the lives of others on a much deeper level, because she enjoys honesty, mixed with a dash of love, ingenuity, and bravery.
Beals is a believer, she doesn’t let doubt or uncertainty beat her. She walks on with great faith in her heart. I’ve read thousands of editorials, but non were ever as honest, real, and expressive, as the two editorials (so far) by Beals.
May Allah protect and reward you Beals, and thanks a million for the inspiration!
My heart is filled with happiness, and it comes from discovering there are wonderful people out there, who are not shallow, and fashion-savvy in a pretentious way, but who are rather change-makers, and beauty-beholders. They look into life with an eye that transcends skin-deep aesthetics.
