If you are a frequent Sixty and Me reader, you probably have heard me mention closet edits, how they go, what they accomplish and how wonderfully fabulous your wardrobe looks on the other side of that activity.
Let’s dive into what is always the most abundant category in the closets of gorgeous gals over 60! Sweaters!
It’s undeniable that there is a different set of makeup rules that apply to women in their twenties as opposed to those of us in our sixties (or older). But when applying our daily makeup, we all know that old habits can die hard.
Welcome to another in my series of how to live like a millionaire on a retirement budget.
To start, there is no one way that a millionaire dresses. Because as we all know, there is no relation between having money and good taste. The good news is you don’t want to dress like a millionaire. What you really want is this – to feel like a million in your clothes.
Wearing and experimenting with makeup is one of the great perks of being a woman. After all, makeup has the ability to transform our appearance, boost our confidence and allow us to enhance our natural beauty.

Most of us know that we can reduce our risk of developing heart disease with lifestyle changes – like incorporating exercise into our daily routine.
But did you know that heart disease can be reversed through those same lifestyle changes, especially proper nutrition? It may be hard to believe, but according to published studies, it’s true.
Over the last few decades, governments across the world have taken an increasingly active role in promoting public health. They encourage flu shots, help to coordinate responses to epidemics, invest in basic science and more specialized medical research and create a safety net for low income families that need access to doctors.
And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. ― Meister Eckhart
I believe there are many women out there that may believe once they have turned 60 there is no need to continue with the upkeep of personal care and health.
Are dark cold winter days leaving you feeling cooped up inside your own home? While it might feel ‘off season,’ hiking during the winter actually offers you loads of physical and mental health benefits and best of all, gets you out of the house!

Few things are more frustrating for single women travelers than having to deal with the single supplement. It just feels so unfair to have to pay more for a hotel room or cruise, simply because you are traveling solo.
I remember the day that I added a “money belt” to my list of travel essentials like it was yesterday. A few years ago, I was visiting some friends in Milan, when someone bumped into me in a crowded street. I looked around, annoyed at being almost knocked over, but, I couldn’t see who was responsible.
Ok, let’s get this out of the way. Viking river cruises aren’t cheap. In fact, for most of us, saving for a luxury river cruise is a multi-year process.

The choices you make today will affect your Social Security payment amount later on. This is true, even if you are in your 60s and are rapidly approaching retirement age. It’s especially true for our daughters and granddaughters, who still have several years, or even decades, to go before retirement age.
Being unemployed as an older woman is a stressful, frustrating experience. It’s also a situation that few of us imagined we would be in just a few years ago.
At first reading, this post may seem less about quality aging and more about not aging at all (meaning dying), but it’s not a bummer. I promise. Since money and financial issues can cause us all so much stress, this is a stress-buster to offer some extra peace of mind.
Did you know that several Social Security rules are about to change? If not, you’re not alone! There’s a great deal of confusion about who is affected and what will happen.
True, the upcoming deadline affects a small percentage of people. That said, many of us are concerned they we lose benefits if we don’t take action. Let’s clarify the situation.

Speakers with voice-controlled assistants – like Alexa and Google Home are all the rage. Sales numbers for the Echo family and the Google Home devices are not released by Amazon or Google.
It took me 50 years to discover the power of a childhood friend. It all started when I was shipped off to sleep away camp in the summer of 1969 and met Betsy Brown. By 1975 we were already too old for camp.
As women who grew up in the 1960s, dance has been a part of our lives since the very beginning. But, if I’m right, most of us haven’t had a chance to see our favorite 1960s dances performed – let alone put on our dancing shoes and try them ourselves – for many years.
Posse: a group of people who have a common characteristic, occupation or purpose.
Post holidays is a good time to reassess who you spend your time with. Think about it as you look back at the past six weeks.

It’s that time of the year when many of us are making lists. Sometimes, we’re enumerating things to do, while other lists may include loftier goals for the coming year or names of people or events we appreciate.
How many times a day do you give gratitude for your gifts, for your family and for the blessings of your life?
I’ll admit it. Some days I forget to make my gratitude intentional, and then when I realize I haven’t done so, I understand why my day is off balance. “Oh, that’s why I’m not fully present!” “Oh, that’s why everything I do seems to be slightly off!”
Oh, how we wish for things to be different: Our bodies strong and healthy and, preferably, slim. Our children stable and successful; our grandchildren happy and thriving. Loved ones alive and healthy. Our marriages deeply loving, or else wishing for that elusive man to complete us. Plenty of money in savings.
