A variety of brushes and other make-up applicators can help us apply makeup with more precision and subtlety. They can have a considerable impact on the way we look and investing in a set of superior quality brushes is a wonderful idea. It’s also economical in the long run.
If you’re like me, you never tire of TV series and movies set in the 1920s. Even though Downton Abbey has ended, we who have the DVDs or Netflix get to watch our favorite episodes again and again. And if you’re like me, you pay particular attention to the costumes and jewelry, which are like eye candy.
Until recently, I had sort of given up on my skin. I felt, well, I’m 60-plus, I have wrinkles and sun damage and nothing can make those go away. I did my usual: cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and didn’t give it much thought.
Good skin care is always important, and especially so once we reach 50 and beyond. One of the many ways in which you can start caring for yourself is by taking care of your skin. You know it’s the largest organ in the body, right? If you’ve never really taken care of your skin, now is the time to start.

Imagine a rain forest teeming with life. All around are trees reaching seemingly to the sky, monkeys swing through the branches, vividly coloured birds shout noisily to each other, butterflies flutter by flowers, wire haired pigs snuffle in the dirt, underneath our feet tree roots form a dense mat.
Has an injury or illness side-lined your mobility? Whether it’s a broken foot or a severe arthritis flare-up, when it is difficult to get out and about, life can grind to a halt.
Bathroom scales might be one of the biggest enemies for Boomers. Yes, I had one of them in my bathroom, and I instinctively stepped on it at least once each week after a morning shower to see whether my holiday eating habits took a significant toll on my weight.
Women over 60 are living longer, healthier and better informed lives. In fact, for most of us, maintaining our good health is on our minds every day.

March is National Women’s History Month, when we recognize and celebrate the contributions of women around the world. It’s an ideal time for women to reflect on their lives, set goals, learn something new and explore new opportunities.
As we travel, we are always on the look out for countries that are low cost, interesting and safe. Sometimes our home currency works against us and other times it works for us. Either way, we are looking for more bangs for the buck. Right?
When you think about the word “cruise,” what images pop into your mind?

Do you suffer from financial shame?
I ask this question because financial shame is far more common than most of us would like to admit. Everyone talks about how financially successful baby boomers are, but, this is just part of the story. Like every generation, we are struggling after the Great Recession.
Your husband may be out of the picture, but his Social Security could still be a part of your life. Whether you’re widowed or divorced, U.S. law may allow you to collect benefits based upon your former spouse’s work history.
If you listen to the media, getting ready for life after retirement is all about how much money you can stash away. So, like squirrels, we run around, burying nuts all over the garden, hoping that they will last us through the winter. Then, when we reach retirement (or semi-retirement), we realize that money isn’t everything.

Do you find yourself avoiding using technology because either your vision isn’t perfect or your eyes are fatigued at the end of the day? Do you think you’d be more likely to benefit from apps like FaceTime, Skype and text messages if you could see their buttons in a larger and/or clearer display?
I love to dance… and have the embarrassing pictures to prove it! So, today, I’d like to share a few videos of my favorite 1970s dances. Let’s take an electric slide down memory lane together!
It is winter and except for a few of us who live in the tropics, most are experiencing some cold weather. We probably will not get snow where we live this year but the mornings are still very cold. The evenings are cold enough to enjoy a fire in our cozy living room.
The holidays, with their many gatherings and social opportunities, have passed. I still feel the warmth of many renewed connections. Some were stimulated by relatives and friends sharing information about past and upcoming trips, others by the sadness over the many health problems that we’re all facing.

I’m always sure the grass is greener on the other side. The person sitting next to me got the bigger portion. My friend learned about investing, while I didn’t. The girls in high school knew how to get a prom date. People stay happily married. Everyone else knows something I don’t.
A few years ago, an older, well-dressed woman walked into my therapy office. She seemed agitated. Nervously, she told me that she was unable to eat or sleep because she was troubled by sexual fantasies about her best friend’s husband.
As the end of the year approaches, I begin to putter around in closets and cabinets, donating those things that I am not using. I enjoy simplicity and orderliness. But it’s not just the cabinets and drawers that deserve attention, it’s the stressful things in our psyche that we should be willing to give up.
What’s easy to do? Spend life in rigid countdown mode – ticking off backwards down to zero.
