Do you ever feel constrained or confused when it comes to choosing new makeup products? Well, by the end of today’s interview with Ariane Poole, I can promise you that you are going to feel much better!
Why? Because Ariane and I are going to tackle some of the biggest stereotypes when it comes to makeup for older women.
“I don’t have anything to wear”. We’ve all said it. As women who care about being stylish and attractive, we love to constantly reinvent our style and create a new looks for special occasions. But, who has the time, or money for that matter, to buy a new outfit for every occasion? Certainly not me. That’s why I have come to love the art of accessorizing.
Despite the fact (or perhaps because of the fact!) that I am now officially in my 70s, I have a passion for makeup and fashion. And, in my experience, few people have their finger on the pulse of what it takes to look good at any age more than my good friend, Ariane Poole.
So, while I was in the U.K. on business, recently, I couldn’t help stopping by Ariane’s place for a quick chat about makeup, skincare and all things beauty.
While our conversation was wide-ranging, we put an added focus on eyebrow makeup this time around. I hope that you enjoy our conversation!

Around the world, nearly seven million people die of coronary heart disease every year. And despite the continuing advancements in surgery, diagnostic techniques, and pharmaceutical interventions, that number keeps going up.
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” If you’re an older woman who dreads experiencing that TV commercial as a real-life drama, you’re not alone. In today’s video, Dr. Sarah Brewer and Margaret Manning share insights into why losing our balance and falling after 60 is such a problem for us – and tips to prevent it. Read on and don’t forget to watch the video!
Several weeks ago, a woman commented on an article I’d done about getting older vs. getting old. She told a story about taking a bad fall over a concrete curb, sitting there for a few moments, and then moving on.
No matter our age, it’s hard not to think about how 5 or 10 fewer pounds might make us happy. It can mean the difference in a dress size. It can be a boost to self-esteem.

I never, ever, thought I’d be single again. I was happily married for almost 28 years, and, sure, I knew one of us would probably go before the other, but being roughly the same age, I figured the other one wouldn’t be too far behind.
Unlike in previous generations, dating after a divorce is an accepted option for women over 60.
What do men really want when it comes to mature dating? Are they simply looking for someone younger than them? Do they want someone who makes them feel useful? Or, is there some other key to an older man’s heart? Senior dating expert, Lisa Copeland, is here to help us figure this out. Enjoy the show!
Scammers are one of the biggest fears women face when dating in their 50s and 60s. You used to only see online scams of men from third world countries using pictures of models to lure women in.

Travel is perhaps one of the best ways you can learn about the world and about yourself. Not only do you get a breather from your routine, but you also get to immerse yourself in an entirely different culture and meet new people.
What do cooking shows, documentaries about history or architecture, or bird-watching have in common? You are bound to find a themed travel tour that can incorporate any one of these passions into a fascinating trip of a lifetime! If you’ve ever been curious to combine your particular interest with a travel adventure, you will really enjoy today’s video with Shila Desai.
If you’re planning an overseas holiday, you might not be looking forward to the long-haul flight. I recently flew 14 hours non-stop from Sydney to Johannesburg (and back again). These are my tips to travel comfortably in economy:

If I asked you to provide some reasons as to why many Boomers want to continue working in retirement, the most frequent answer would be, “for the money.” I don’t doubt that is the main motive, but I would like to further unpack the issue of Boomers choosing not to stop working.
Ladies, when you “dis” something you mentally degrade or put it down. This can hinder you from using your financial resources in retirement to fulfill your unique version of true wealth.
When our careers are in full swing, we don’t think about the importance of jobs for retirees. Either we assume that we will save enough money to live in comfort in the “best years of our lives” or we look forward to enjoying our freedom in retirement, without working, even if it means cutting back on luxuries.
Women are more likely than men to underrate themselves when it comes to investing. Yet women are usually in charge of household budgets, are more willing to save for the long-term and are better bargain hunters.

The day we close on a new house, we start looking forward to our final payment. Over the years our savings build up and retirement is in the not-so-distant future. It seems like the perfect time to pay off our mortgage and live debt-free, but is this a good idea? Join us in discussion with financial expert Pam Krueger who explains why this decision may or may not be to your advantage. Enjoy the show!
Everyone resists change… Change is very hard… Real change takes a long time…
We hear things like these all the time. Are they true? Well, maybe and maybe not. Like lots of things, “It depends.”
My very friendly next-door neighbours moved back to the US last month. In many ways, it was not a surprise, as they were always going to be visitors in London – here because of the husband’s job. Yet it came as both a shock and a loss.
Yes, your cabinets or closets may need a good purging. But spring is also good time to throw away some things that don’t require a trip to Goodwill.

You know what I’m talking about. You walk into an office and there, on the receptionist’s desk, sits that innocent bowl of candy tempting you. Not one of those bowls with unwrapped morsels and a scoop. I won’t touch them. Who knows what grubby little fingers have been in there?
Have you kept your New Year’s Resolutions? According to the U.S. News and World Report, 80% of resolutions fail by February, most by January 12th. Really.
