I always enjoyed going out for Valentine’s Day. It made me feel special to have my husband plan an evening (even though I did most of the planning) and I would get all dressed up for the occasion. Now that I’m middle aged I find that all the hype associated with this holiday is just that — hype. You spend a lot of money eating food you really are not crazy about from a very limited menu and you spend a fortune!Read More
Happy Friday ladies! I’m so excited for our first 2021 post of the Ageless Style Series. We are continuing with our fantastic and diverse group of bloggers all styling a similar seasonal trend in a variety of ways. Our winter theme is SWEATSHIRTS!

I love sweatshirts. They are, and have always been, a staple in my wardrobe. A grey heather crew neck and a grey heather zip up hoodie are my signature fashion statement.

Yes, I know it’s Super Bowl Sunday and yes I do know we ladies want to have fun today. And yes I know that many of us don’t like to exercise on Sunday. Okay, now raise your hand if you’re planning on enjoying this special day with some wings, chips and dip, cheesy nachos, maybe some pigs in the blanket, pizza and some beer. If your hand is in the air let’s be smart and get these over fifty bodies moving a little. You can do this quick workout while you watch the halftime entertainment.

Exercising in the cold can burn more calories and also helps to increase your fitness level. But it’s important to be wise because winter weather can be dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken.Read More
We’ve all been there before – you spend weeks pumping yourself up for the commitment you’re going to make towards a healthier diet and regular fitness routine. This time, things are going to be different. You WILL do what it takes to look and feel your best. You’re so motivated, you start off strong! You avoid carbs for three weeks straight. You partake in cardio at least four times a week. Nothing can stop you, you’re doing great! But then, you go out to lunch with a girlfriend and she gets french fries with her meal. You just peck on a few – after all, you deserve it! But those few french fries unlock a craving you aren’t necessarily prepared to deal with.Read More
