Jewellery, in all its forms tells the story of our life. Whether we choose a necklace or a bracelet, they all tell people more about who we are, and they remind us of places and people, events and special things.
You know it when it happens because you start to look washed out and tired – your hair color isn’t working. To say it isn’t flattering is probably an understatement. Are the things you’re doing to hide the grey hairs aging you? That’s not the way it’s supposed to be.
Plus-sized women often deal with a barrage of unsolicited advice. Opinions on what to wear, what not to wear, the right colors, the wrong colors, unacceptable styles and cuts, etc. Even when those suggestions come with the best intentions, they can be downright insulting.

I’ve never been a good sleeper. As a kid, I remember reading for hours by the hall light while my sister slept.
It starts simply enough: You graciously help a friend move, go on a ‘short’ hike that becomes an all-day event, or simply wake up and – surprise! – something new hurts.
Are you finding yourself skipping out on dinner invites or other social gatherings? Do you have a sense that others around you are often angry with you or ignoring you? If you answered yes, your anxiety may be related to hearing loss.
There is more to losing weight than simple calories in vs calories out. It is also more than finding out what foods work for you and what do not.
The number one important step that many of us do not pay attention to is our mindset. Here is a simple step by step analysis to help you discover if your mind is sabotaging your weight loss success and what you can do to stop it.

Rejection at this ripe time in our lives can really stink. There’s no way around it. As we learn to move on after divorce, even the strongest of us can’t help but feel like we did something wrong when the person we loved and cared about, and spent our lives with as a partner, suddenly doesn’t want to be with us anymore.
At some point in most monogamous, over-60 relationships, the issue of whether or not to live together comes up. During the 60s and 70s, moving in with your sweetheart was so common and freewheeling that it earned the dubious label, “shacking up.”
Today more than ever, women over the age of 50 are finding opportunities for love and friendship in the unlikeliest of places. They are meeting in competitive sporting events, senior living communities, book clubs, cruises and traveling groups.

We take vacations to relax, get away from our everyday stress and reconnect with friends and loved ones. But sometimes the planning and prep for a vacation can feel like more work than it’s worth.
If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit Ireland. But prepare yourself in advance, you just may have too much ‘craic’ and you may just not want to leave.
We had so much fun in Ireland that Hurricane Ophelia must have read our minds and delayed our departure for a day. We did not complain too much at all.
Fall in Santa Fe is golden. Shimmering cottonwood trees take over the city, their leaves almost molten in beautiful shades of yellow and gold.

When our careers are in full swing, we don’t think about the importance of jobs for retirees. Either we assume that we will save enough money to live in comfort in the “best years of our lives” or we look forward to enjoying our freedom in retirement, without working, even if it means cutting back on luxuries.
Why is it that time seems to fly now that we’re 60 or 70 or 80? I’m often amazed when a wedding, the death of friend or a move to a new city was 20 or 30 years ago. Heavens, it’s already 2018! What happened to 2017?
During my first year of self-employment I earned $13,000. I lived on ramen noodles and peanut butter and turned down social outings because I couldn’t afford a glass of wine. It was one of the best years of my life.

In 1964, Bob Dylan wrote the song, “The Times They Are a-Changin’.” As he sang those famous words, I wonder if he had any idea how much they would come to represent an entire generation of Americans.
I love fashion. Color, texture and style have always had a powerful impact on my life. For example, when I am shopping, I often will tune into my color of the day based on my mood. Then, I find myself attracted to items in that color family.
I like to chat. I chat first thing in the morning about any problems I faced in the night. Then I chat at lunch about events of the morning, and I chat in the evening about the rest of the day.

Keep this word top of mind: accountability. It feels like it is one of several buzzwords for 2018. The first time it caught my attention was when I was watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the newest member of the group turned out to be an Accountability Coach.
I’ve noticed women often have a love-hate relationship with visibility. We long to be seen and heard while also being afraid of it.
The media talks a lot about the health benefits of living an active and full life. They say having a purpose in life is the key to positive aging, but are you stuck trying to find your purpose?
