Finding good advice on how to apply makeup for older women is a challenge. So, since this is a topic that many women in the community have asked me about, I turned to celebrity makeup artist, Ariane Poole for some advice.
The other day, I shared an article about 88-year-old fashion icon, Baddie Winkle, who recently appeared in a television commercial for Millennial-focused fashion brand Missguided. In the article, I argued that women like Baddie are doing a service for older women everywhere by challenging aging stereotypes and living their own way.
Last weekend I had a life-changing experience: while attending a training session on color analysis, I found out that I’ve been wearing the wrong palette for over 20 years.
With all that’s going on in the world today, this error might sound trivial to you. But as a woman who prides herself in looking her best whenever she leaves the house, I was shocked by this news.
I’m sure we all remember the “rules” that governed how to dress as we were growing up. I realize that it’s hard to change our thinking about something we’ve heard over and over throughout life. However, I do feel like it’s important to be open to new ideas and styles, too. It keeps us young and modern!

The morning cup of coffee is essential for many and is a trusted friend through early starts with children, grandchildren and morning meetings. But for those of us who are looking for ways to cut down caffeine levels, there are other great and healthy options to start the day.
Are you turning age 65 in 2018? Do you know how to go about registering to obtain your Medicare card?
Labels can be necessary, helpful or, sometimes, just plain insulting. MAWIM is an acronym I encountered in a local travel piece, and it stands for Middle Aged Women in Menopause. I immediately cringed. But read on.

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.

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.
Talking with the other members of our community, I am amazed by how many good ideas people have for businesses. Even more surprising is how few of these ideas ever become reality.
It’s not that older adults are lacking energy or drive.

I saw this as a little blurb in an AARP article: “When you eat out, do you order lobster or chicken?” I stopped cold. I order the chicken, of course. And now I’m annoyed with myself.
As a new grandmother (for the second time), I have had the opportunity to think about some of the things that were missing in my “Baba Bag” or “Grandmother Survival Kit!”
We all know that as we get older it is even more important to take care of our body and feed it with healthy food and goodness. However, there are also those times when we just need a sweet treat!

The rice paddies that stretch out from the house are flooded now, reflecting the sky with big puff-ball clouds that turn pink, then orange, then white as the morning sun rises.
After a loss come sorrow, grief, anger and depression, even rage. My motto is ‘live your dreams without drama.’ Easier said than done sometimes.
No matter who you are, I believe that everyone requests guidance or ‘prays’ to someone or something at some time in life. It doesn’t have to be about religion or religious beliefs either.
As the year winds down, I am reminded of all the New Year’s resolutions I didn’t stick to over the year. How do I remember? Because I’ve started to create a new list for the incoming year and the resolutions are exactly the same:
