2014 September 24

Sometimes, don’t you just want to lock yourself in a room (a pretty one, of course) and shut out all the irritating situations and people in your life? Here are a dozen of our most irritating irritations. We only have one question: How is it that everyone else is annoying but us?

1. Reading countless Facebook posts about all the cultural, artistic, humanitarian and creative things everyone
(but you) is doing; places they’re going and
kudos they’re receiving.

12 Things Your Adult Kids Should Do For You Before You Die

2014 September 2

They can be frustrating, exasperating, even downright insulting.

But they’re our “kids”, and we love them unconditionally. Still, there’s nothing that thrills us quite as much as when they show us how much they really care (and not just on our birthday)!

Print out this list and surreptitiously leave it at their house when you next visit. Or slip it into your daughter’s handbag or son’s coat pocket. Hopefully, they’ll get the hint!

1. Call us at least once to simply
ask “how are you?”

Yep, Beauty Is In The Eye of The Beholder

2014 August 27

Do you ever pass a stranger on the street and immediately notice her ravishing hair?

Her incredible jewelry? Her absolutely stunning outfit? She looks so great, you even stop and turn around to watch as she walks away.

Or, you notice her, but for dramatically different reasons. Her unseemly makeup? Her unfitting pants? Her unbecoming ensemble? “Where did she ever find that getup?” you say to yourself. “Who does she think she is, wearing those ridiculous shoes?”

You know the adage: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” So true, isn’t it?

We thought it would be fun to see which of these looks we bless and which we boo! Have fun. There’s really no right or wrong. We’re FabOverFifty, and the only “fashion gods” we should be worshipping are ourselves. So there, Anna Wintour!

Cast your votes right now, and we’ll report the results next week!

P.S. Each time you vote, the page will refresh!

11 Things That Bring Us Great Comfort

The 11 Types of FOFs: Which One Are You?

2014 August 6

We’d like to think we’re multi-dimensional and multi-talented multitaskers, but one of our many attributes usually stands out, way above the rest. It’s the one that often defines us, even if we’d prefer not to be pigeonholed. When others think about you, what image do you suppose they conjure up?

1. The Domestic Goddess

You get a rush from the scent of Pine Sol and a 425 degree oven.
