Does fashion, after 50, only consist of dull colors? Do women our age no longer don bold prints? Watch the show as we discuss with Jess Jannenga, a fashion blogger on Elegantly Dressed and Stylish, that bold prints and colors remain an excellent choice for women, even (or perhaps especially!) after 50.
We never think to combine cream with powder when we use blush, but is it possible? Join us in discussion with makeup artist Ariane Poole who is here to share her professional advice. Enjoy the show!
Trendy styles may come and go, but classics live forever. Women like Audrey Hepburn, Maria Shriver and Barbara Bush embody grace and elegance, not only in how they live their lives, but also in how they dress. Their polished, put-together look is one that many strive for, but few are able to achieve.
Our eyes are the windows to our souls. They are also one of the first things that people notice about us. As a result, there are millions of makeup products designed to make people’s eyes look brighter and fresher.

I do my best to keep up with the latest research about high blood pressure (hypertension) because this illness has had such an awful impact on many of my family members and friends. So, understandably, the cardiovascular risks, such as heart attacks and strokes, are all very well known to me.
As a Heath Educator in Plant Based Nutrition, I am interested (some would say obsessed) in using helpful spices and herbs in culinary quantities. These are familiar kitchen ingredients that we use for delicious tastes, but they also have many benefits.
Most boomer women have a strong work ethic and derive a great sense of identity from their work. After all, many of us started working when we were 15 and have worked for 45 years, so when work ends, there is often a huge void in our lives. This leaves many of us looking for ways to avoid loneliness in retirement.
Cooler weather is just around the corner, and that means time to plan for some fun, health-boosting fall fitness activities! Don’t miss this quick essential list!

Sex after 50 is taboo subject. While we have come to expect our world to be filled with images of perfectly shaped 20-somethings in intimate situations, the very idea of sex over 50 is repulsive for many. In the movies, sex has become so commonplace that we barely even notice full-frontal scenes – unless, like in The Hangover, the body being shown is owned by an older person. In these cases, the nudity is there to make the audience giggle nervously.
If you are at the beginning of your senior dating journey, you probably have several questions. How can I write a great profile? Where are all the good men my age? Am I ready to deal with the emotions that will inevitably come as I get back into the dating game?
If you believe the dating sites, dating over 50 is easy, fun and stress-free. Some services have even gone so far as to say that dating in your 50s and 60s is better than at any other age. But, is this really true? Or, are dating sites simply looking for new ways to separate us from our money?
One of the biggest myths about aging is that women over 60 no longer care about how they look. This is definitely not true. Most of us still care about how we look, even if the world expects us to be invisible. At the same time, I have to wonder whether the focus of our attention shifts. For example, do most of us still care about being “sexy” in our 60s? Or, do we care more about being “desirable,” “visible,” or “needed?”

If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit Ireland. But prepare yourself in advance, you just may have too much ‘craic’ and you may just not want to leave.
We had so much fun in Ireland that Hurricane Ophelia must have read our minds and delayed our departure for a day. We did not complain too much at all.
Fall in Santa Fe is golden. Shimmering cottonwood trees take over the city, their leaves almost molten in beautiful shades of yellow and gold.
There is nothing ordinary about the drive from historic downtown Rome to the port at Civitavecchia. As you leave the capital, you feel the weight of stone and sculpture, culture and commerce lifting from your shoulders. In its place, a gentle breeze lifts your spirits as the Mediterranean pulls you towards your next great adventure.

We Boomers boomed. We had our day, dictating styles, trends, music, food. And debt.
In keeping with my series on living like a millionaire on a retirement budget, I want to share the techniques I’ve learned from my Millennial kids and their friends about living well when you don’t have money.
The gig economy? What is that? It is simply a technical word for the economy that absorbs a number of part-time and flexi-time workers into employment on a contractual basis, via the Internet.
Aging? Anti-aging? What’s your vocabulary, and what does it say about growing older?

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?

Did you ever think, “Ah, when I’m 65, I can finally do what I’ve wanted to do for so long: I can read when I want, be creative, take afternoon naps, see friends and play with my grandkids”?
If you don’t remember the details of a trip that you took 10 or 20 years ago, did it ever happen? This was the question that found myself asking when I talked with my son recently about the trips that we took as a family.
Ok, I’m not a big sports fan. That said, there’s one statistic that has always amazed me. Many people know that, in 1923, the famous baseball player, Babe Ruth, broke the record for most home runs in a season.
You can’t get to age 60 without making a few mistakes. These range from small missteps, which nibble at us to larger errors, which keep us up at night. Perhaps the most harmful memories are of the times when we have accidentally hurt someone else – or ourselves for that matter!
