Description

The Glow Code is an entertaining and engaging lifestyle manual offering concrete, actionable advice from women experts across many fields to help women aged 35 and beyond navigate midlife, feel great and age well. It answers all the pressing questions women in this age category have. Does collagen powder prevent wrinkles? Do I need to give up the side part? Cardio or weights? Is there a trick to ordering good wine? Or buying art? What’s a face serum? And what happened to my eyebrows? (I miss them.) Am I a good friend? In a world rife with information, women need a passionate advocate to sift through all the misinformation and product endorsements to figure out what works. Enter: Michelle McIvor.
A veteran health-and-wellness journalist, Michelle has compiled and curated simple and effective habits, strategies, and life edits to help women everywhere complete their glow-up. To do this, she’s vetted and interviewed experts, trailblazers, and maverick thinkers (think: Emmy Award–winning makeup artists, renowned fitness experts, scientists, and psychologists), and grouped their advice by topic (fitness, skincare, sex, friendships, life hacks, etc.). What’s more, she’s tried each piece of advice to report back on the good, bad, funny, and strange, thus not only informing but entertaining readers. Ultimately, The Glow Code offers a joyous engagement with and exploration of aging. For women, middle age is a time of transformation, reflection, and reckoning. The advice they’re looking for isn’t fluffy and aspirational but concrete and positive. In particular, they want to make changes that light them up and make them feel their most beautiful, alive and realized selves. Covering a wide range of women’s magazine topics but with deeper insight and sound advice, The Glow Code is the cheat sheet to aging well for those with minimum free time but maximum ambition to feel, look and live better now, in midlife and beyond.
Michelle McIvor is a journalist on a mission to age gratefully. Since 2005, she has contributed to publications such as Maclean’s, Chatelaine, Best Health, and AskMen, and she spent three years as a health and wellness columnist with the Calgary Herald. She has ghostwritten two books, including the #1 Canadian bestseller, Forever Terry: A Legacy in Letters. Michelle lives in Calgary, Alberta, with her husband and two kids.
