Recently, I was looking forward to a walk around one of the beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota lakes with a former work colleague – especially since it looked like it was going to be a real “top 10” gorgeous, summer day. Though I knew it was going to be very hot, I’d neglected to check the humidity level.
If you’ve been following fashion lately, you’ve noticed that there is an 80s nostalgia phase in full swing: big shoulders, dramatic silhouettes (Grace Jones redux, anyone?), exaggerated ruffles, shiny and see-through fabrics… and did I mention big shoulders?
Moving to a new country can have a big impact on our personal fashion style. Adapting may be more or less of a challenge, depending on how different the new culture is from your own.
It’s time to be brutally honest. When I first heard about face primer, I thought, “You’re kidding. One more layer of stuff to put on my face? No way!”

I received this email the other day from a friend who is five years past her cancer experience.
“I’ve been thinking of you as you move in to the next stage of your cancer journey. I remember having very mixed feelings at each stage – I was somewhat worried/scared as the treatments lessened.”
Tennis is a complicated, beautiful game where there are many skills to master – and strategies to learn. But it also acts as a mirror, illuminating our relationship with ourselves and others, and presents wonderful opportunities to practice mindfulness.
As far back as I can remember, conventional wisdom has been that the higher our HDL cholesterol levels, the less we and our healthcare providers had to be concerned about our ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol levels.
While flu season doesn’t technically begin until the fall, this virus can actually be contracted year round, and adults over 65 are typically more susceptible to complications.

Are you in the middle of your summer travel? Are you experiencing overbooked flights, long waits at airports and high costs to boot? Most airlines now offer seating, eating and baggage choices for the discerning traveler.
Slow travel is not so much about how fast you navigate a new place. It reflects a philosophy of life. Fast travel is active, busy and hurried. It can be an impatient and frantic way of visiting a new place.
I hadn’t been to Europe in many years, so I spontaneously decided to ‘dash’ across the pond with my carry-on and explore some new cities and countries. It would be just like the days of my youth: me, a carry-on, hopping on and off trains and trams, feeling light and free.
Thinking about finally making that great trip to Europe? Whether you travel regularly, or your trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity, when it comes to taking that big vacation abroad, you want to make the most of every moment.

If you are going to be interviewing for a job or a position that you really want, here are 10 things you can do to walk in prepared to win.
It is 97 degrees out today, and a girlfriend and I are getting on the river. I am blessed to live in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado, with outdoor amenities at my fingertips.
Of course, the answer is, “Nothing.” There is nothing wrong with me just as there is nothing wrong with you – in case you were wondering. However, I am in the age group considered to be old and undesirable for employment.
There was a time when I felt sure that I would continue working until age 70 or beyond. In fact, I often joked that one day I would simply resign from my job at the nursing home where I worked as an RN and move myself into the assisted living facility next door.

As a distance runner, the track world was a mystery to me. A recent experience, my first track meet competition, was daunting and something I approached with apprehension.
While sorting through my inbox, I came across one email with the subject line “Loving Life with Less.” Given my interest in downsizing, I was very excited to read it. Yes! I thought. That’s exactly the goal.
One of the topics that endlessly fascinates me is how solo women of “a certain age’” are going to live healthy and happy lives in retirement.
Many single women prefer solitude and want to live alone. Others crave living with a crowd of like-minded people of all ages. They want dogs, cats, kids… the whole human experience!
As a young woman, I was always on the lookout for female role models. There were not a lot of them on television in the 1960s. In fact, I remember my first real exposure to TV was Bonanza where four guys dominated the screen. I didn’t let this stop me from identifying with who I thought was the most handsome, interesting and clever. Adam of course!

Beyoncé has a famous song – perhaps her most famous – called “All the Single Ladies.” I’d like to retitle it “All the Senior Ladies.”
This does not come as a call to get a guy to marry you, which is the theme of Beyoncé’s song, but as a call to be adventuresome. If you like it, go for it. Whatever that “it” might be. It could be sky-diving, cycling, Tango, going back to school or painting.
Conflict is a part of life. Few of us live without it. But what if conflicts from your past are interfering with your moving forward?
Conflict is never an easy thing to deal with, but old, deeply rooted disagreements can really affect your body, mind and spirit.
Do you remember a time when ideas mattered? I do. Do you remember when perspectives were more important than personalities? I do. Do you remember when trying to make the world a better place mattered more than which tribe we belonged to? I do.
I have a collection of mantras that I learned along the way and try to live by. I have adopted and repeated them for satisfying life change, when I needed to reframe my perspective and outlook…
