Deciding whether or not to embrace your grey hair is a dilemma nearly all women over 60 eventually face. Do you continue to dye your hair the same brown, red, or blonde shade you’ve worn for years, or is it time for a change?
I think many of us can identify with the woman in one of my makeup classes for women 50+ who recently blurted out: “You wake up and feel like you’re still 30-something…
When I was about 20 years old, I was living in London. In the summer, a friend and I took a vacation in Portugal with a single goal in mind – to get the deepest, most outstanding tan possible…

I admit it – I’m hooked. Not generally a greedy person, when I’m faced with bushes of free berries, I go nuts. Ballistic. I can’t stop myself. Not only that, but I can’t pass the berry display in the grocery store without nabbing at least a few…
Learning to play a musical instrument is something that many of us have considered doing at some point. As well as being fun and providing a great sense of achievement, there are many health benefits of playing an instrument…

Ready to take the plunge into the world of dating over 50? Looking for Mr. Right, but only finding Mr. Wrong? Margaret Manning of Sixty and Me talks to love coach and dating expert Lisa Copeland about why dating is different for mature women and what you can do to find a loving, successful relationship.
I never, ever, thought I’d be single again. I was happily married for almost 28 years, and, sure, I knew one of us would probably go before the other, but being roughly the same age, I figured the other one wouldn’t be too far behind.
Unlike in previous generations, dating after a divorce is an accepted option for women over 60.
What do men really want when it comes to mature dating? Are they simply looking for someone younger than them? Do they want someone who makes them feel useful? Or, is there some other key to an older man’s heart? Senior dating expert, Lisa Copeland, is here to help us figure this out. Enjoy the show!

We have been travelling the world full time since 2013, and in our travels, we have found some great destinations that we have enjoyed. We think that you will enjoy them too…
We had been planning the trip to Iceland for months. In quest of the Aurora Borealis, a trip to nurture my soul, my husband, Mark, had diligently made all of the travel arrangements…
Traditionally, the Holiday Season has been a time to spend at home with family and friends. For many women in our Sixty and Me community, it’s a season of spiritual celebration, gift giving, decorating and enjoying delicious food with loved ones…

Read any retirement planning book these days and one piece of advice will stand out – start saving early! Well, this is all well and good, but, the truth is that many of us are already in the final years before retirement…
I am a BIG believer in passive income. Why? Because, in today’s low interest environment, $1 in yearly passive income can be worth $20 in retirement savings (or more!) So, even if you have never thought of yourself as an entrepreneurial person…
When we think about retirement planning mistakes, most of us think of things like “not starting to save young enough,” “taking on too much debt,” “not buying a house,” or “not saving 10%.” What these mistakes have in common is that they are all things that we do (or don’t do!) in our 20s, 30s and 40s.

A man named Randy Scott (not his real name), requested to ‘friend me’ on Facebook. I often get military men, middle-aged and older men, requesting to be friends. I delete them since my rule of thumb is, “Don’t accept friend requests from people I don’t know.”
Yesterday, I was on the phone with my sister, who lives and is quarantined in Buenos Aires. She was complaining that so many different things around the house needed fixing. As she was telling me about her broken electric oven…
We all use the cloud almost every day in one form or another. However, many of us have no idea what it actually means.
When we talk about “the cloud,” what this means is that the things you create (a.k.a. data), such as photos, videos, documents and email, are not physically stored on a computer, phone or tablet.

Our outlook on life and our beliefs can change as we age. Agendas get altered and things that were once so important may now seem silly or trivial. In fact, you may sink into a hole of not caring much about anything and find you are not taking care of yourself like you should.
Oh, the joys of retirement! No bosses or supervisors, no deadlines, no meetings or annual reports! What a luxury to find yourself with endless hours of free time and nobody telling you what to do. I’ve been retired from my full-time career…
The road I live on isn’t paved. It stretches for a mile – a dusty avenue wide enough for two vehicles, and treacherous after a heavy rain.
I knew this a dozen years ago when we found our property, which ultimately became our home, at the end of this road. But I never loved the drive in. My aging compact car rumbled fiercely every foot of the way; forget ever staying clean.
Have you thought about what you want to do with the rest of your life? Do you ask yourself, “What’s next?” or, “What’s left?” It can be a challenge to think about what you want to do. However, answering the question of “what’s next” is critically important for success.
