It is that time of year when we are faced with the question “what do I wear”? to special occasions, like weddings, parties, Melbourne Cup Race days or casual lunches out with friends.  I, like everyone, always has trouble finding something age appropriate but not frumpy, for these special occasions.  The selection of dresses are sometimes more suitable for…

Technology and the over 50’s

    I remember when I got my first mobile phone and thought “wow I’m really with it”.  Nowadays it seems most of us 50 somethings have mobile phones and not just your standard Nokia model, but we have smart phones.  We are also buying ourselves E Readers, Tablets, Ipods, Digital Cameras, Laptop Computers and…

She looks good for her age

Women my age tend to be our own worst critics.  We constantly eyeball other women and ‘pick her to pieces’ having thoughts such as: “boy, she has a lot of lines on her face” or “her hair needs a good stylist”.  It is seldom that we look at one of our 50 something sisters and think…

How to Tell a Woman’s Age

  You can always tell how old a woman is, they say.  Just look carefully.  And no it’s not by looking at her wrinkles, her grey hairs or her paunchy tummy!  You just need to sneak a peek in her handbag, bathroom vanity or medicine cabinet! 20 something’s handbag: Holds smart phone with spivvy phone…

Living in Cougar Town!

  I occasionally go on girl’s nights out with my girlfriends which usually consists of a nice dinner out at a restaurant or a quiet drink somewhere (with lots of incessant chatter!)   Increasingly we see women, particularly in bars, dressed up to the nines in their push-up bras and sexy little mini-skirts flirtatiously parading around…

WAS I EVER ME?

My mum said to me the other day that during her early married life with my father she was trying to be someone she wasn’t. When I asked her what she was trying to be, she replied “like your Dad’s sisters”, (my four paternal aunts).  In other words, a fabulous cook, housewife and mother who was immaculately groomed…

The Invisible Age

    My girlfriends and I very often feel like we are invisible, undesirable objects who have no further use to society. Have you ever tried to get a decent job after the age of 50, particularly when you have spent the last 20 years juggling the demands of being a wife and mother and…
