I’ve been working out in one way or another since I was pregnant with my first child. I guess that was around the time I grew up and realized I had to take care of my health and that included moving my body. Since that time, I’ve pretty much stayed the same weight, but I find that I have to
What if I told you just by changing the color of what you’re wearing you can change the way you and others feel, which can change your reality? Crazy? I don’t think so. You’ve probably noticed that color changes the way you FEEL. That’s pretty powerful medicine! Perhaps this is worth considering next time you want to change your mood
What happens when you’re too tired, or too lazy, to put any effort into SHOWING UP CONFIDENTLY?
You already know the answer. I dare say, when I don’t make the effort to look put-together, I not only feel invisible, I actually want to BE invisible. I’m not likely to introduce myself as an image stylist because at the time I’m not

Continuing with The Art of Sensual Living: My Lifestyle Secrets, I’m diving into Secret #3: Self-Image Fitness. Whew!!!

I’ve been an Image Stylist To Women Over Fifty for eight years, helping women who are feeling unstylish and frumpy rediscover their style mojo and confidence. It’s a calling that I’ve been preparing for my entire life, and being married to a sculptor and artist helps me see a woman’s body as a work of art. It’s all about seeing
WOW!! I’m overwhelmed!! I’ve received so many positive responses from women (and men) all over the world who follow my Facebook posts, asking me to share my secrets to healthy living after revealing some of my latest photos. A photo is the most honest reflection of our health and vibrancy.
As I sat with my photographer (an amazingly talented local photographer/branding
Whether you’re single, married, or newly divorced, you go out on dates. If you’ve been married thirty years your dates might be going to Costco with your hubby and catching an In-and-Out Burger afterward, but it’s still a daytime date (at least I consider them dates!).

I have met so many women in their 50s and beyond in the last several years who appear as if they’ve given up on style. They come across as tired, frumpy, hopeless, wondering what happened, wishing they were ten years younger and twenty pounds lighter. Out of date with their style, and needing an update more because they will get
