One thing is becoming very clear as Generation X enters AARP territory: we are now in charge of the class (we just let ourselves in, thank you very much) and we just wanna rock. I follow a few Gen X groups on Facebook, and the nostalgia for 80s music is unbelievably strong. I think that’s […]

Early in my career, I remember a youngish senior director who worked from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day. He rarely came in early or left late. You could almost set your Casio watch by his schedule. This was a busy and fast paced company, and there was always plenty to do. But he […]
Feeling a bit insecure is something we all deal with from time to time. Who hasn’t gone into an important presentation, a big game, or a new support group with some butterflies about how you’re going to pull this off? I would venture that even today’s most reliable standard bearers of achievement still struggle with […]
Everything runs on data now (and Dunkin’), so it’s easy to hand over the reins to a gadget or an app to find out how we’re doing. Sleep trackers and apps come up a lot in my work with clients. Because so many people struggling with their mental health have issues with sleep, many of […]

Recently, I read about actress and model Pam Anderson’s bold choice to go makeup-free at a high-profile fashion event, embracing life in her 50s with a more unfiltered presence. In fact, she didn’t even bring a stylist with her. The horror. Kudos to her, because I’ve seen The Devil Wears Prada, so I’m assuming that’s […]
A few years ago, my husband and son were away on a summer trip with our church youth group. I love my family, but I am still very much an only child. I love having uninterrupted time at my behest so I relished having a few days alone in the house. There’s a lot of […]
Remember the last time you stood in the makeup aisle, just staring at those hundred shades and brands of lipstick, wondering which one to buy? And then, after a gazillion minutes, you walked out of the store without buying any because you couldn’t decide between two slightly different shades of red? Welcome to the world […]
Like many of you, I love trying out new skincare products. Especially those that come with rave reviews. I recently ordered one such item from a great brand on Amazon. A skincare influencer I follow recommended this product, and I was eager to make it part of my regular 9-step AM & PM skin care […]
