At nearly 65 years old, I am starting to wear lipstick. Why? I’m moving into that “pink lady” stage where my scalp is pink and shows through my hair, but the rest of me is losing some of its freshness. As I age, to my dismay, I find that my lip and skin coloring are fading.
There are millions of makeup for older women products out there… and we all have our favorites! Well, today, Ariane and I would like to share ours! Join us as we share our top 10 makeup products for women over 60. Some of them may be familiar to you. Others will be completely new! Enjoy the show!
A few weeks ago, I asked the members of our community whether, when it comes to fashion after 50, it is more important to “look good” or “feel good.” Perhaps somewhat predictably, many women commented that they didn’t feel like this was a fair choice. They said that they always selected clothes that look great AND feel great.
Too often, women over 60 fall victim to the mindset that, as we age, we become invisible. Stereotypes about aging and unfair fashion “rules” can make us feel like what we wear or our personal fashion choices simply don’t matter.
At age 88, Baddie Winkle is fashionably reminding all of us that this is not true! By refusing to accept invisibility, Winkle has become an inspiration for women of all ages.

There is always a lot of chatter about what to eat for breakfast and the importance of starting the day with a healthy choice. Many people feel if they skip breakfast they will lose weight.
With the holiday season in full swing and parties abounding, it’s time to think about what dishes you will be serving – or bringing – to the next event.
It’s the time of year that people start thinking about holiday parties. For me, parties always mean food. I’m a foodie so it makes sense. I’m a food blogger who loves to cook, eat, share my food and share my recipes on Recipe Idea Shop.
In the never ending quest to reach a desirable weight, some cultures that are worth studying are the French and the classic Mediterraneans, i.e., Greeks and Italians. When adhering to their classical way of eating, people in both cultures generally do not have a problem with weight.

When you think about cruising, what images pop into your mind? Do you dream of crystal clear waters and gentle salt breezes? Or, do you imagine arriving in exotic ports and sampling local cuisine at a leisurely pace?
In terms of travel, the last few months have been incredible for me. First, I had the opportunity to join Road Scholar on a trip to Prague. On this adventure, I learned just how fun group travel can be.
As we enter our 60s, we women realize that we have had many “once in a lifetime” experiences. Perhaps we’ve raised children or been present at the birth of a beloved grandchild. Maybe we’ve started a business or found profound fulfillment in volunteering to help others.
For many older women, including myself, taking a cruise is the ultimate vacation. Cruising offers the opportunity to “shut off” from the world for a few days, or weeks, while you rejuvenate your body and soul.

Whether you’re starting a services business or building a physical product, finding customers is critical to your success. Right about now, you’re probably thinking that this is the most obvious statement in the world. Before you stop reading, consider the fact that most entrepreneurs put very little thought into this part of the process. Instead, they charge ahead with building their perfect product, assuming that their customers will come to them. This rarely happens.
If you have gone through steps 1-4 in my “How to Build a Business After 50” series, you already have a good idea of your strengths and skills. You have probably settled on your profitable business idea. You may have even set up your website. Now what? How can you get the information you need to decide exactly what to build? Equally important, how can you market it to your prospective customers? One way to do both is with content marketing.
You never stop worrying about losing your job, unless you’re retired. Then you’re always worried about losing your mind.
Different work ethics exist today. We boomers went on vacation and could only be reached via a hotel landline or one of those Motorola brick phones, like I had in the 80s. Even then, it was too costly to have my staff call. I just told them to make a decision based on three things: Will I get fired, will Barry get fired and will we get sued. I told them if the answer was no to these questions, proceed.
In previous articles, we have discussed many aspects of selling your handmade items online. First, we started with an explanation of how to improve your crafting skills. Then we discussed how to decide which items to create. In the last article we covered where to sell your items online. And, now, in this final article in our craftpreneur series, I would like to cover how to find customers.

In the U.S., victims of elder financial abuse can lose a cumulative sum of about $3 billion a year, according to Bob Blancato, head of the Elder Justice Coalition and expert in the Caregiver Smile Summit.
And guess what? That is a low estimate. Another study reveals up to $36 billion in losses. As the population of aging people grows so do fraud and abuse.
Many people in their 60s continue to attend workshops and classes to enhance their professional talents, learn new skills, network with others or experience the fun of a cooking class or a travel program.
How would you feel if a relative or friend died, leaving a house full of clutter behind them, and it fell to you to sort it all out?
Unfortunately, this situation is very common. I often meet people who have toiled for months, or even years, disposing of someone else’s stuff.
Are we the generation which had it all?
The bra-burning brigade of the 1960s led us to believe we could have everything we wanted – a fabulous job, a happy family, a beautiful home, leisure time by the bucket-load because of all the labour-saving gadgets, good health, cars, holidays – you name it, it was ours for the taking.

Today I’m writing about a walking woman dear to me: my sister. My sister has been battling bladder cancer for the last 3 years.
As summer turns to fall, many of us are reminded of our youth, when September meant going back to classes and setting goals for the new school year. Even though our classroom days are mostly in the past, developing new ambitions every few months is a great idea.
When we reach 60, 70 or 80 we are surprised we got here so quickly. We meant to make investment plans and take better care of ourselves along the way. What happened to the last 40 years? It’s scary, this aging thing.
