When it comes to taking care of your aging skin, it’s difficult to know where to turn for advice.
Sure, there are plenty of companies who would be more than happy to sell you their latest expensive cream, but, how do you know which ones actually work?
Well, let’s just get one thing right on the table: almost every outfit just looks better with high heels. They lengthen your legs, they make for better visual proportions, and they add an element of chic to anything they’re worn with…
Some people figure out their fashion style early in life and then spend decades building on and improving that style. I am in awe when I see a young woman who already understands her personal style and goes into the world with confidence and flair.
What the heck have I gotten myself into?
Those were the words that went through my mind when I first sat down with professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole, to record a series of makeup for older women video tutorials.

Are snacks something you eat to refuel between meals or something you do when you watch TV or are bored? Are sweets a reward for hard work or do you look for other ways to feel good?
Painful joints and arthritis were traditionally treated with oral painkillers such as acetaminophen (paracetamol), ibuprofen or stronger anti-inflammatory drugs.
These are now discouraged following concerns that they may affect your liver and kidneys, as well as increasing your long-term risk of heart attack or stroke.
This is part 2 of the two-part post on frailty. In the first part, we discussed the definition of frailty, how it affects us as we age and the very important symptom of muscle mass loss.
In this part, we’ll talk more about muscle mass, what to look for, and how to reverse its loss. We will also discuss how doctors measure frailty.
For those of us in the tea industry, the question whether all tea contains caffeine is a loaded one. There are so many factors in play.

When was the last time that you really enjoyed taking a flight? Even if you’re a seasoned traveler, the idea of standing in line, dealing with grumpy passengers and eating airplane food probably isn’t too appealing.
One thing that I know about the women in our community is that we love to travel. Of course, we may not always get to jet off to exotic destinations, but, we take every opportunity that we can to see the world. This could include taking a cruise, traveling by train or just driving to see the grandkids in the next city.
Why do so many women over 60 put such a high priority on travel? Some argue that it helps them to feel energized and excited about life. Others want to be entertained. Still others might say that travel provides the perfect opportunity for learning.
House sitting has been around for years. Maybe you assisted your family and friends by feeding their pets, looking after their homes and collecting their mail whilst they were away.
So why is “house sitting” the new buzz word when we have been doing it for years?

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.
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.

Who doesn’t like to receive gifts? I certainly enjoy beautifully wrapped surprises. I will admit, however, with a gift that’s wrapped really pretty, I can get ‘wrapped up’ in the beauty of the presentation and delay opening it.
Research is clear that if we want to stay healthy and to thrive we need to develop and maintain strong relationships. According to the Mayo Clinic, adults with strong relationships live longer than their peers who have less vital relationships.
Spring is never quite the way you think it’s going to be. It starts off looking all mellow and warm, with gentle breezes, and then, turns cold and damp, with blustery wind that says, “I am not yet done telling you something.”
My friend Susan stared at me in disbelief. “You’re going to do what?” She was incredulous. “Go to Africa alone and climb Kilimanjaro at sixty?” She paused for a deep breath.

What did you love to do as a child? Do you remember getting happily lost for hours, so immersed in a hobby or passion that you lost all track of time?
Last month, I wrote a post 3 Remarkable Gifts That Help You Flourish in Your 60s, which generated lots of feedback, both online and offline.
While many comments were affirming, there was also some pushback on what was perceived to be an overly optimistic and even simplistic view of life in our 60s.
Remember those days when, as a child, you gave little heart-shaped Valentines and then waited and hoped you’d get some yourself?
