The Queen of Yes

By Diane Stark

Last Friday, I had a million errands to run and a little boy who would’ve much rather stayed home and played. “I’m sorry, Bud, but you have to go with me,” I said. “Daddy’s not home from work yet, and I can’t leave you home by yourself.” Nathan sighed. “But I just got a new […]

Like Mark Twain said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.” I guess my earliest encounter with fashion and style was at the age of seven. My folks felt that it was time for me to own my first suit so we rode over to “The American Shops,” a local clothing store. […]

Happy Feet

By Diane DeVaughn Stokes

Ahhhhh, happy feet! No I’m not talking about that movie with the dancing penguins! Summer is here, and I am finally back to wearing flip-flops and sandals where my feet can feel free and easy, making me feel free and easy all over too. They have told me many times how much they hate winter […]

We Found It!

By Rose Ann Sinay

We did it! After only a week of searching for a house in Connecticut halfway between my daughter and her family and my son and his, we found the place we could call home, where we could make wonderful memories with our granddaughters. The 1940s Adirondack style house, on three acres of land, boasted a […]

At the first sign of gray hair, many of us go straight to our stylist for color. And while this is a beautiful option, gray hair can be gorgeous! Veteran stylist and colorist, Daphne King, gave us some tips about returning to our natural shade. As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair […]

Snip, snip, snip. Scissors clicked away. My eyes were closed, as instructed. My ears alerted me to this cosmetic alteration. I felt her hand and the blade brushing my cheek. Why did I decide on a make-over only hours before my son’s uptown, out-of-state wedding: a make-over done by a stranger in a salon where […]

Sister, Beautify Thyself

By Zile Elliven

In the not-too-distant past, I used to wake up, drag myself out of bed, find a way to get my sleep-addled brain to feed the kids – and myself, stuff them into their clothes, and finally, finally get myself dressed. More often than not, the result of all of this was that, when I came […]

Pink Tulle Skirt

By Kim Delmar Cory

I was a 63-year-old woman with a brand new unworn pink tulle skirt hanging in her closet. It is a size 1X. I bought it for the same reason one can never have too many twinkle lights. Twinkle lights make me smile no matter how horrendous a day I’ve experienced. If my car died on […]

Makeup Made Simple

By Casey Sifford Jones

Makeup should be simple, and while trends come and go, I prefer a more classic look that all women can achieve. Of course, always start with good skin care for the best results. All women can try the new trends, but women over 50 may choose to do a different level to achieve the best […]
