I don’t know about you, but I want to have lifelong health for at least 100 years or beyond! There are plenty of role models in this world letting us know that age doesn’t matter; it doesn’t have to stop movement, exploration, learning, beauty, self-expression. Your true self is love, it’s wisdom, and it doesn’t stop.
With that in mind, I am presenting links to articles and videos on centenarians and how they made it to age 100 or more. Continue Reading
In regards to your true self, age doesn’t matter. You are who you are, your spirit is ageless, you can have lifelong health and make the most of what you have. You just have to use it or you lose it!
But in regards to makeup, it just isn’t made to last. Red lipstick gets rusty-looking, mascara gets gloppy and dried out, moisturizer turns moldy and smelly. If you don’t use it, just lose it! Continue Reading
The Fashion Massacre is a an annual fashion presentation based on the idea of having Fashion Week in Detroit.

The statement necklace is a magic maker! An over-the-top necklace will turn any outfit into something special. Wear one day or night…No matter where you go, no matter what you are wearing, age doesn’t matter…Wearing a statement necklace will just suddenly make you look smashing.
This is a diary of the healthy lifestyle goals that my son, Chris, and I are making together each month.
Since it takes 21-30 days to develop a new habit, making a goal for the month ahead is an effective strategy.
Chris and I agree that making these monthly goals together and posting our results here for you to see helps us to improve our health. I’ve always found that if I say out loud to someone what I plan on doing, I’m more likely to do it. Because if I said I would, I feel responsible to follow through.
Age doesn’t matter. It’s never too late. You can always make progress and actually reverse the signs of aging!
In April, my goal was to cut down wine and sweets to every other day. Chris couldn’t think of a new goal, so he decided to maintain the progress he had already made on his healthy lifestyle.Continue Reading
A color chart is a fun tool to use as a starting point when creating outfits. You can mix colors to your heart’s content to express your true self, or use the chart I have put together for you below. When using the chart, just choose a piece of clothing in a basic color and see what colors are indicated to go with it. Color is art, and art is beauty. You can consider yourself a work of art every day; age doesn’t matter. Have fun!
Angie Cox of the fashion blog YouLookFab.com commented after viewing the Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear collections, “As far as colours go, I saw it all. Colours seemed to be making a stronger statement than neutrals. From the happiest brights, merriest mid-tones and softest pastels, through to earth tones like mustard, jewel tones like emerald, and greyish mid-tones like mauve, sage green, and air-force blue. They’re remixed in all sorts of combinations, so having ahigh affinity to colour mixing is in your favour.”
The following chart can help simplify your color choices.
