By this time in our lives, we probably don’t need to go buy something new for any of the holidays coming up on the calendar. I’m sure most of us have many items in our closet that could work for either a dressy occasion or a casual event. But there are times we all panic and think “I have nothing to wear!”
Whether pencil or felt tip, eyeliners can be very difficult to apply. They smudge, slip, poke our eyes and generally wreak havoc. Join us today for a few tips from professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole, who is here to show us the best ways to apply eyeliner. Enjoy the show!

When I host a party, I do my best to provide a variety of foods to allow my guests to choose at least a couple of options that meet their nutritional restrictions. I also ask my guests what food allergies or sensitivities they have so that I can make sure I avoid them.
All you ever hear from people is how much weight they gained during their cruise. “The food was so good,” they groan. They ate like crazy and now they have to diet.
Well, I’m here to report that I went on a cruise and lost weight. Hah!
How often do healthy foods actually taste good? The answer for me sits somewhere between “not often” and “never.” And then, there is cocoa. Not only is it delicious, cocoa is also packed with anti-aging goodness. No wonder that it has been named ‘the drink of the gods.’
Have you ever been so tired that a stop light seemed like a blessing? You close your eyes for just a second and take a deep breath, trying to catch a wisp of the tiniest second – or maybe third wind?

Cuba is like no other place in the world and one of Road Scholar’s most popular destinations.
I don’t think that I have ever looked forward to a trip as much as I am looking forward to my upcoming Viking river cruise. As I sit here, cup of Earl Grey steaming on my desk, I can’t help but wonder what life on the river will be like. Will I see any of the mythical creatures that supposedly live on the Rhine? What fascinating people will I meet? What secret places will I discover? I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it!

If, like me, you are a single woman in your 60s, you may be thinking about the best places to retire.
Perhaps you are looking for a country with a lower cost of living so that you can make your retirement income stretch farther. Or, maybe you want to find a place that provides opportunities to pursue the passions that you left on the back-burner during other stages of your life.
Every year, magazines like Forbes, publish lists of the “best places to retire.” These publications typically look at important factors like the cost of living, safety and climate of each location. But, when you think about it, the question “what is the best place to retire?” isn’t really fair. Why?
As we reach our 60s, many of us are asking “what’s next for me?” It’s a great question! Unfortunately, it’s also incredibly broad. It represents the general feeling of angst that many of us feel about the future, but, it isn’t terribly actionable.
If you are thinking about retiring abroad, you probably have a pretty good picture in your mind of what life in another country will be like. You’ve done your homework, scouring the Internet for information about healthcare costs, climate and culture.

I love the change of seasons because it gives me an opportunity to do one of my favorite things: purge my closet. The good thing about purging one’s closet at the beginning of the season is that the things you get rid of are still wearable by someone else.
Years ago I would often have people over for dinner. We called these events dinner parties, and I would usually invite anywhere between two to five couples.
I would spend all day in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and still be busy when the company arrived. I would also tend to things while everyone was sipping on cocktails and nibbling on appetizers
Do you spend weeks hunting in shops or spend hours on your computer looking for the perfect holiday gifts? Gift giving can be an exhausting and emotionally draining experience as we struggle to find just the right gifts for our family and friends.
The term retirement dates to 1889, and is rapidly becoming an obsolete term. It was first used for soldiers who were pensioned off during the reign of Otto von Bismark in 1889. In that century men were expected to live two years after turning 65.

Kristi Nelson is the executive director of a Network for Grateful Living. I was particularly interested in the topic of gratitude because – of all the traits I observe in older adults living a quality life – that one consistently rises to the top.
Have you ever wondered why you are so hard on yourself at times? Have you wanted to explore something new, like joining a new group you’re interested in?
This weekend, I had reason to look at the statement “finding purpose in retirement.” It is a statement I find myself using often.
For many, finding purpose points to finding the deep spiritual meaning of life which may not seem relevant when used in the context of retirement. This is why I would like to look at it more carefully.
“But now the days are short, I’m in the autumn of my years. And I think of my life as vintage wine from fine old kegs. From the brim to the dregs, it poured sweet and clear. It was a very good year.” – Ervin Drake, It Was A Very Good Year
There is something grounding, something earthly ceremonial about the change of seasons. The natural world is filled with answers to our longing. Nature is the great healer and finding time to spend in its sensual beauty nurtures the tired soul.
