I’m joining my friend, Cindy Hattersley, as we each interview a different woman for our monthly “Ageless Style” series. You’ll find the link to Cindy’s blog at the end of my post. Other than her style and beauty, the first thing that drew me to Ann Caruso was her kind, empathetic and caring heart. Qualities she’s honed as a respected, international celebrity stylist with big-name clients like Oprah, Elizabeth Hurley, and Johnny Depp, and by her personal experience as a two-time breast cancer survivor.  Ann Caruso tells us the basics every woman over 50 should have in her closet.

A POWERFUL LOVE STORY FOR THE AGES

If you like love stories, I have a powerful love story for the ages. A true story that speaks to the power of a mother’s love and her twenty-five-year fight to save the life of her son. When I think about this woman and her son—she’s been my friend for 15 years—I know without a doubt that miracles do happen.  From the moment he was born, Jonathan Carrington has been the miracle boy. Imagine giving birth to a perfect, healthy baby boy, and four months later, an aneurysm ruptures in his brain and he’s left severely challenged. That’s what happened to Tammy Carrington’s precious only child ..read more

I’m amazed 2022 is almost behind us. For a good portion of the year I’ve been focused on planning my April 2023, “Invitation to the Rest of Your Life” trip to Tuscany.” The nine women who are coming with me have already started getting to know one another, and I’ve been sending emails designed to get us in the mood for a week of fabulous food, one-of-a-kind experiences, and workshopping the next chapter of our lives. The other thing I’ve been focusing on this year is my memoir. I signed a contract with Beth Davys, one of the top literary agents in the country. Needless to say, I’m excited ..read more

Selecting holiday gifts can be frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive, so this year, think of me as your Holiday Gift Elf. I’ve put together a list of things under $50 for everyone on your list, including you. I’ve always thought it’s a sign you’ve chosen a great gift if you want one for yourself. I’ve also included a few pricier items because if nothing else, it’s fun to window-shop. HAPPY HOLIDAYS MY FRIENDS. Everything I’ve selected is something I’d love to receive or buy for myself. I love and use both of the eyeshadow palettes plus I’ve included THE BEST hand cream in the world. Ser ..read more

Once again, I’m joining my friend, Cindy Hattersley, as we each interview a different woman for our monthly Ageless Style series. You’ll find the link to Cindy’s blog at the end of my post.

OUR MIND IS A RADIO STATION

Even during the best of times, the holidays can be trying for many of us. It’s easy to let ourselves be overwhelmed with preparations for get-togethers with family and friends, or perhaps it’s memories of holidays past and loved ones who are no longer with us. But in between thawing the turkey or going through the security check at the airport, what if we take ten minutes to reset our thoughts and emotions and find a respite of calm? One that will see us through today and be there for us again tomorrow. I think I’ve talked to you before about an App you can download onto your phone called Ca ..read more

HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH HYALURONIC ACID IF YOU’RE OVER 50?
1010 Park Place
by Brenda Coffee
3M ago
In a recent Ageless Style interview with Jennifer Denton, we talked about her favorite skincare products. Many of them contain hyaluronic acid, and we joked that hyaluronic acid seems to be in everything these days. I’m sometimes surprised it’s not in our breakfast cereal. But how many of us know what hyaluronic acid is and what it does for our skin? Or whether product junkies with 10-step skincare routines are potentially doing more harm than good to their skin? While the term hyaluronic acid may sound harsh, it’s actually a substance that’s found naturally in our skin. Its s ..read more

The Best Fall Accessories for Women Over 50

Today I’m joining four blogger friends to talk about the Best Fall Accessories for Women Over 50. Links to their websites are at the bottom of this post, so make sure you stop by and see what they’re featuring. Isn’t it interesting to think about how much we’ve changed over the years? Not just the ways we’ve matured and how we see ourselves, but how we dress. For most of my adult life, my idea of an accessory was the camera I had around my neck–a 35mm, panorama, or underwater–and other than a small purse I took to dinner, my only bags were for my cameras. Now I find it surprising that my bel ..read more

SEVEN DON’TS WHEN BUYING MAKEUP OVER 50
1010 Park Place
by Brenda Coffee
4M ago
For the last three weeks, I’ve been on a relentless hunt for a foundation that matches my skin tone and a concealer that doesn’t make me look like I have white circles under my eyes, but so far, no luck. This morning I applied my latest purchase… Could you hear my screams from where you are? I’m frustrated because I’m partly to blame for what’s become a long, futile makeup odyssey.  I shouldn’t be surprised because I’ve violated all of my longstanding rules of thumb about buying makeup. It all started when Clarins reformulated my longtime foundation and deleted my shade. Their new shade ..read more
