Getting older is nothing we should be regretting, but rejoicing
... so embrace every year!

Getting older with a little help from my friends

I'm 57, and These Are the 3 Trends I will and Won't Wear

After turning 50, as always, I wanted to dress stylishly, with a little bit of edge, but chic. Now that I'm 57, comfort is at the top of my list. I don’t like to think too much about what to put on.

When did restaurants get so noisy? Finding a place that suits your taste now

People over 50 are part of an age bracket that spends more than $4,000 a year on dining out, according to the Pew Research Center.

Yet, as you get older, what you want in a restaurant changes. Before you have kids, you’ll put up with waiting for a table, especially if the restaurant is the hottest place in town.
