One of the most common requests that I get from the women in our community is to interview a professional stylist on the topic of hairstyles for women over 60. So, I have finally decided to make good on this request. In the coming months, I’m going to make it my mission to find a globally recognized expert to help us understand this topic. But, first, I need your help!
In today’s sequel article about “Tips, Tools and Makeup to Look Great in Glasses,” we’ll cover the best way to use concealer and a good way to apply foundation so it’s less likely to come off on your frames.

Women over 60 are still feeling sensual and sexy, and we’re more empowered than ever before to explore our feelings and have the kinds of sexual experiences that we want to have. Many of us are dating again after a divorce or widowhood, and many other women over 60 have never stopped dating.
But no matter where you are in the relationship game, there are a few things that you need to know about sex after 60.
Bette Davis once said that getting old is not for sissies. Well, many women would argue that the same comment applies to dating after 60. Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 20’s. Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.
My guest on this latest episode of the Sixty and Me Show is Lisa Copeland, a dynamic writer, blogger and successful over 50 dating coach. She focuses specifically on working with women over 50, who, she feels, often approach dating with misconceptions and unrealistic goals.
One of the biggest myths about aging is that the older we get the less interested in sex we become. In reality sex after 60 is one of the world’s best kept secrets. Those of us who are still in relationships enjoy sex as much as at any point in our lives – even if society doesn’t want to think about it.

Anyone who has downsized her home knows that the experience it is an emotional roller coaster. The process of getting rid of our possessions goes something like this.
First we get rid of the junk that has accumulated in our homes. This includes those items that really don’t matter to us or may have never mattered to us.
Maybe you’re still living in the house where you raised the children: Bedrooms remain unused. Closets are full of things accumulated over decades. Memories are in every corner. The garage is stuffed with who knows what.
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.
