We’ve all seen them before… those magazine articles with “expert advice” on how to dress in your 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond. It’s rare to see them go beyond the 50s though, as if women needn’t bother past a certain age. What nonsense!
Wouldn’t it be lovely if makeup were as simple as finding what works for you and being able to stick to it for good? Unfortunately, much to our disappointment, this is not the case. If you find your makeup routine just doesn’t seem to be working as well as before, you’ll be fascinated by today’s video with Ariane Poole!

One brisk walk a day is enough to cut the risk of early death by as much as 15 per cent, according to Public Health England. I read this in my nightly download of stories of centenarians. Fifteen percent! That’s a pretty good payoff for one brisk walk a day, don’t you think?
‘Tis the season for get-togethers, gift exchanges and goodwill.
But it’s also the season for colds and flus.
The best defense is offense. Wash your hands for 20 seconds when touching or near contagious people or shared items. Use the hand wipes provided in grocery stores to wipe the handles of shopping carts.
I remember when Jane Fonda proudly announced that she had put on some weight, and that she was looking better. She said growing up, she was told it was a choice between her ‘ass or her face,’ but now she’s getting complements on both.
Have you been counting calories or points ever since you can remember and still struggle with losing weight after 50? In reality, being overweight has much less to do with calories than it has to do with food choices.

When I talk with the women in our community about dating after 60, I am usually met with skeptical, or even cynical, responses. The most common complaint that women our age have about older men is that they only want to date younger women.
According to Lisa Copeland, dating after 50 is different than dating at any other point in our lives. When we are younger, we can afford to sit back and let men come to us. But, as we get a little older, Lisa encourages us to take control and not be afraid to strike up a conversation with men.
Is sex after 60 really different for man and women? This is the question that I asked senior dating coach, Lisa Copeland, in a recent interview.
When it comes to dating over 60, have you ever thought about how myths about aging might be holding you back? For example, one of the biggest stereotypes is that the older you get the less interested you should be in sex. What rubbish!

So, you’ve bought your tickets and the dates are set. You’ve finally gotten up the gumption to give yourself the trip of a lifetime: a hike around magical Macchu Picchu, a kayaking trip on the Dalmatian Coast, or just a gentle exploration of gorgeous Cinque Terre, Italy. Let’s consider preparation.
It definitely took me by surprise because I wasn’t expecting it. After a year backpacking through Europe in my 20s, I had been looking forward to being home and reconnecting with friends and family.
When I was in my 20s, I sold all of my worldly possessions and bought the cheapest ticket that I could find to India. After completing a degree in Comparative Religion at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I decided to dive into one of the most fascinating cultures on the planet.

I have often found the end of the year and the beginning of the next one a bit of a downer. Have you?
I know I was busy. I am sure I accomplished something but I needed a tool that would help me really stop and think about what I did.
I swear to you that I am not a bah, humbug kind of person.
In fact, I love the holidays, and one of the things that I most look forward to is that business slows, relatives eventually go home and I have hit every bullet point on my Christmas “To-Do” list.
Aaahh, the smell of roasting turkey. Sounds of jingle bells and children’s red-cheeked laughter. Visions of shiny wrapping paper and sparkly trees and glowing menorahs. Joy and connection. The happiest time of the year.
Except when it isn’t.

My car has a feature which I find totally annoying. When I’m close to what the ‘powers-that-be’ determined is my next required maintenance, a little box pops up on the dash-screen announcing “Maintenance required soon!” and stays on until I’ve acceded to its request.
As women who have lived for over five decades, we already know that central to most problems in the human condition is the idea that you create expectations for many situations in life. It’s an emotional sink hole, highly difficult to maintain.
At the risk of sounding weird and creepy, I’d like to share something with you: I love my local cemetery. It’s a place of mystery, magic and history. I go there several times a week and think it more special with each visit.
Afraid of the aging process?
Aging is certainly not glamorized in the media and there’s even some ageism ingrained in our pop culture, so don’t fret if you are indeed afraid. You’re not alone.
