The Game-Changing Mother’s Day Gift Of 2017



Just in time for Mother’s Day — we are excited to discover a new way to stay in touch with your aging mom, who may not be so good with modern technology.

FabOverFifty has partnered with ViewClix so you can share photos and enjoy authentic face-to-face time with your mother (and father), especially if they live out of town.

“My parents lived 3000 miles away. I remember trying to Skype with them and send them photos online. I tried everything, but they had a really difficult time understanding the technology,” says creator Rob Ranck. “I knew there had to be an easier way to ‘see them’ and share photos from family gatherings, which they could not attend.” So Rob used his invaluable years of technical experience at Intel and AT&T to create an innovative device which lets aging loved ones view digital photos that you and other tech-savvy family members send to it through your Apple or Android smart phones, tablets or PCs.

An Innovative New Way For Us To Keep In Touch With Our Parents



Are you finding it difficult to stay in touch with your parents and other loved ones who aren’t tech-savvy? FabOverFifty has partnered with ViewClix to show you how you can!

Teaching your mom and dad to text-message may not be a cinch, but teaching them to video chat may be nearly impossible. The ViewClix Smart Frame, an innovative new device, solves the problem by providing a hassle-free way for your digitally-challenged parents to video chat and instantly receive photos from family and friends, anywhere.

The ViewClix Smart Frame’s large 15.6 inch HD screen displays photos in a slideshow until the Smart Frame receives a video call, and then it automatically connects you so you’re face-to-face with mom and dad. ViewClix also includes FREE access to UNLIMITED photo storage in the ViewClix Cloud. (more…)

“2 puppies @ $300 each. In my defense it was also my dumbest purchase! One would have been enough work but nooooooo, like a genius I had to double that.”

Drape Someone You Love in Faux Fox (It’s So Reasonable, You Can Buy One For Yourself, Too!)

Who wouldn’t flip over unwrapping a Christmas gift and seeing this luxe-looking Faux Fox Collar/Scarf?

Designed by Kathy Moskal, the genius who co-founded HUE fashion legwear, the soft, cozy and oh-so-sophisticated scarf will instantly give any ensemble a bit of glam! It drapes perfectly and has an elastic loop on the underside to keep it closed. Made in the US, and washable.

“I just throw it over everything.

It’s fun and versatile and I wear it with a jeans jacket, a suit or a dressy coat,” said Robin Bobbe (right), Kathy’s friend and sales rep for Kathy’s new company, OKOKO. “Kathy is coming out with a new line in the spring, made for FabOverFifty women,” Robin told us. “She knows her stuff and I am excited to be a part of it. We are both women in our 60’s.” We can’t wait!

Only 35 Faux Fox scarves are left and can be purchased on eBay for a mere $45
(regular retail was $75).
