“I don’t need it. I don’t want it. I’m not gonna buy it.” Say it three times and walk away. Say it and feel fabulous. You’re a part of a new anti-consumerism movement that will help you feel like a millionaire.
If you are anything like me, then you’ve had scarves in your closet for many, many years. Whether you wear them or not is a different story. But now that the weather is getting cooler and we need extra layers to keep warm, these are great items that work for any age, any size woman.

Much has been written about loneliness in recent months – and not just about the elderly who find themselves alone in later life.

Here’s the thing about striving to get fit or lose weight after 60: As you run around spending wheelbarrows full of money on ab devices and diet plans that end up in the garage under an inch-thick pile of dust, you usually end up right back where you started.

Smith College, in the 1960s, was a hotbed of social activism. Students on the all-female campus stood up not just for women’s rights, but for human rights.

I’ve spent a lot of time in Morocco and I’m still happily discovering all its hidden surprises. For the first-time traveller, there are endless discoveries in a culture rich with history and African, Middle Eastern and European influences.
Have you shied away from staying in hostels because you thought you were just not the right age?
Since 2013 we have been on the road continuously travelling and have stayed at many hostels in the last three years. I was hesitant at first; I thought there may be an age gap.
How wrong I was.
I always travel like a millionaire – as in getting to and from a place – but I don’t always “vacation” like a millionaire. I’m perfectly fine with staying in a barebones eco-bungalow on the beach, or taking a rough and tumble road trip through the countryside and finding a B&B for the night. Because I live with a millionaire mentality, I always have a grand time.

There are a few myths about aging circulating out there, and here’s one of them: aging makes you less adventurous and less creative.
Are you an older adult who loves to drive? Or are you worried about your own senior mom or dad driving?
Being an aging single introvert, I find that I am now more confident in recognizing and stating my need to be alone. At the same time, when I’m in a social setting, I’m also more confident than I used to be – maybe because I have had the time to recharge my inner battery.
I first learned about the topic of food waste reduction two years ago. After doing some research, I was compelled to blog about it.

I hate to admit it but I’m a creature of habit. Year-round, I follow the same routine: I’m up early to go to the gym for a workout, or I head outdoors for a long run. Then most of my days are spent at the computer editing or talking with clients on the phone.
I had coffee with a friend of mine in London recently. We talked about our joint desire to make our second half of life both meaningful and productive.
A friend of mine is limping into his 60s with a sense of loss. Loss of youth, energy and significance. I understand all of that and believe that most of us go through a passage where we grieve the younger life we’ve left behind.
