Most of my 30-something guy friends are dating girls fresh out of college.

I don't care if I'm freaking Methuselah. Why should I have to apologize for getting older?

clothes
The main thing I notice when I look back over the decade I've just graduated from, it's that I didn't know s@#% about styling myself in an attractive way.

botox
I know it's not youth-culture-worshipping-approved, but I will be the first to tell you that I will be 40 in three years. I am not "perpetually 30," and I'm just fine with getting a little help from Botox along the way.

drinking
Did you know that the technical term for a hangover is “veisalgia”? It’s basically Norwegian for "uneasiness following debauchery," and is the best way to describe how I feel after drinking, both physically and mentally.

skincare
If you have major skin issues, you'll probably want to see your own fancy dermatologist and get a specialized regimen, but otherwise I think these steps are a pretty great start for anybody.

Let's talk about clothes, and aging, and cuteness, and sex appeal, and whether we are -- or should be -- tweaking our style as we get older.

Does anyone have any tips on coming to terms with looking older?

I let my 7-year-old choose my hair color. He chose turquoise.

Where was I when everybody decided to get their shit together? Probably drinking margaritas at a dog wedding.

language
While it’s cool to know that being bilingual has scads of smarty-pants benefits, the study overlooks many other things that are awesome about knowing more than one language. But don’t worry -- I’m here to help with five more!
shopping
A pair of overalls in the window led to a much bigger discussion inside my head.

marriage
Holy matrimony happens for all sorts of people, regardless of education, background or common sense. Why did the Love Boat pass me by?

I am so old. I could be the mom of many of the readers of this site. Awesome.

fashion blogs
I've fallen headlong into a vortex of fashion blogs written by Canadian women over the age of 40.

I'd always thought I had great skin -- until one day, apparently I didn't anymore. How had I let my one "pretty" attribute slip away? And my self-confidence along with it?

I had 20 to myself, twenty years ago. I am content now to celebrate 40 and admire 20 on another generation of women.

It's not like you go to bed beautiful and wake up a hag. You grow old gradually and notice every once in a while.
