I’m only recently coming back around to caring about stuff like what my face looks like, and have been slowly re-introducing myself to stuff like “skincare.” By slowly, I mean suddenly and impulsively BUYING ALL THE SKIN THINGS.

Historically, caregiving has been one of the most undervalued professions in society despite being one of the most important, and labor organizer Ai-jen Poo is setting out to change that.

Why doesn't anyone ever mention the good stuff that goes along with aging?
advice
'People aren't judging you as much as you think they are. This one will take you a LONG time to figure out.'

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

I think I'm finally getting okay with "the inevitability of aging."

A 54-year-old writer pushes readers' buttons by gleefully describing what it's like to look 25 years younger than she is (with zero plastic surgery, thank you very much).

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.
