When applying makeup, there are a few features that most women hope to accentuate with their application. Creating the appearance of big, wide-open eyes is commonly a makeup goal for women of all ages.
A person’s eyes are often the first feature that gets noticed. Knowing that, it makes sense that finding ways to enhance and beautify the eyes is important to many women!
For those of us in our 60s, we often begin to encounter some physical changes to our facial features, especially involving our eyes. When it comes to noticeable signs of aging, the eye area tends to be a dead giveaway.

When it comes to weight loss, the holiday season usually spells disaster. Many of my clients share with me that between all the stress and all the sugar they would prefer to just fast forward to the month of March!
With winter on the way, staying active becomes increasingly hard to do. Between preparing for the holidays and the higher likelihood of severe weather, many of our favorite walking groups will part ways until the next spring season.

There is a certain reverence with which a ship’s crew looks at the ocean. It is powerful, exciting and unpredictable. Rivers are something different entirely. They are still powerful, but, it is a quiet power. They are exciting, yet refined.

Can you work and collect Social Security? The simple answer is yes. The more complicated answer is that you may not want to.
As the careers that supported us for decades come to an end, many of us are starting to think about jobs for retirees. It’s not just the money that we care about, although this is certainly important! It’s also the sense of purpose that comes from contributing to society in a tangible way.
When it comes to retirement wishes, there are plenty of positive things that you can say. You can talk about the amazing contribution that your friend or coworker has made. You can focus on their passions. You can simply wish them all the best for their next great adventure. At the same time, there are certain retirement wishes that do more harm than good.

After my husband passed away from cancer and the dust had settled, I was soon left to deal with the pain and suffering that would ensue. I didn’t know how or where to begin putting the pieces of my life back together again.
When we reach our 60s, several things happen:
