By any chance, do you, like me, have an image of your mom in red lipstick applying powder to her nose? This image is indelibly printed in my brain… along with another image that actually makes me squeamish: remember the fox stoles of the 1950s? I can’t even go there.

For a great many mature women, powder blush just doesn’t work any more. In fact, powder in general can make your skin look dry, causing you to appear much older than you are.

I’m always curious about learning new health habits that are super effective but also fun. My firm belief is that if it’s not fun, it’s not sustainable. Life is full of unpleasant tasks, so why make exercise one of them? If ‘bootcamp’ is in the name, count me out.
While in some parts of the country it feels like summer simply won’t let up, in other parts the cooler temperatures are really starting to set in.
How many of us, still in the working universe – or maybe working from home – think they need coffee to boost their energy and jump-start their day? How many of us wake up with a fuzzy brain and mindlessly think a shot of java will do it for them?

I remember my first ever online-booked meet. I can still picture walking up to the door of the restaurant and pulling it open.
After being single for several months, I felt it was time to get back up on the dating horse – but I was too afraid of online dating after 50.
Well, online dating is pretty much the way of the world nowadays, and if you want to meet someone single of the opposite sex, or same sex, your best chance for success is the internet.
Have you seen our article about rapper Curtis Jackson, more commonly known as 50 Cent, who has admitted to having a ‘thing’ for actress Helen Mirren, who, at 73, is 30 years his senior?
When I first started dating in my 40s, I fell in love with a man who was the wrong type for me. During the two and a half years we were together, we broke up at least three different times.

Airports can be stressful. This could be your first trip and negotiating the maze of buildings is challenging. There are so many people, corridors, signs, shops and distractions.
Traveling solo and living like a local is a dream many older women share. The thought of immersing yourself in a culture you find fascinating is alluring. However, many mature women never take the plunge, letting their apprehensions override their desires. If you are looking for ways to travel off the beaten path but still feel safe and comfortable, you will enjoy today’s video with Shila Desai!

It’s not difficult to see why reverse mortgages for seniors have become so popular of late.
For starters, most of us are approaching retirement with less money in the bank than we hoped for. This is partially due to the Great Recession eating into our savings, although, if we are honest with ourselves, we probably share part of the blame for not putting more away when we could.
Historically speaking, your financial adviser’s job has always been to help you reach your financial goals. If you wanted to retire, travel or buy that vacation home, you were only to set your goal, and your adviser would tell you how to get there.
These days, marketing a service is about establishing your presence and building trust on the Internet. In the past, you would demonstrate your product to an audience and they decided whether they wanted to purchase or not. Now there is little face-to-face contact as we cross global borders.
Women over 60 have a strong independent streak. When we were younger, we used the word “freedom” carelessly. In many ways, it defined our lifestyle. We were free to wear bohemian clothing, free to travel where the wind took us and free to choose unconventional lifestyles.

The search for meaning is an ongoing personal quest for many people. We want to live lives that are full of purpose, that allow us to understand and use the best parts of ourselves and that allow us to live our true values.
How many times a day do you catch yourself multitasking? Talking on the phone while watching TV and cooking is not uncommon for many women over 60. But is it efficient?
Don’t you love to hear someone say, “I remember holidays at my grandparents’ house. I loved the smells and the decorations, especially the _____________. That was my favorite!” Do your kids, grandkids or family friends have specific decorations they always comment on?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the challenges that are presented by everyday life? Do you feel like finding happiness is a distant goal? You’re not alone!
There’s a saying I’d like to explore with you: “Believe you can or believe you can’t, either way you’re right.” It points to the importance of confidence and positive self-belief in accomplishing our goals at any age, but more so in the years after 60. The challenge is maintaining that confidence through tough times.
Are you the best person that you can be? It’s a simple question, but, its consequences are far reaching. Why?
Because making a commitment to self-improvement puts us in control of our lives – and a sense of control is a cornerstone of positivity. By taking action to be the best person we can be, we assert our right to judge ourselves. At the same time, we deny the right of others to judge us.
I saw a meme on Facebook last week with the following instruction: “think of one thing that makes you happy and smile.”
