One for me, one for you. Another giveaway!

     A shipping error resulted in not one, but TWO review copies of "Ultimate Facercise" by Carole Maggio landing in my mailbox this week. As you've probably deduced, this is a book of facial exercises which, if performed regularly, can reportedly lift and tone your mug without painful, expensive injections or - eek! - any procedure involving a scalpel.
   Let's exploit this situation and have another random drawing, shall we? Simply leave a comment below stating what your favorite facial feature is and why (don't be shy, brag away) or email your answer to cathy@boomergirl.com and I'll announce the winner on July 15th.
    OK, I'll start (because I'm almost never shy, tho' I am ineligible to win): My favorite facial feature is my nose because it's the only thing on my person that hasn't expanded, sagged, dried up or wrinkled over the years. Your turn....

Not sure that I have a favorite facial feature, but I'm okay with my eyes, I suppose...!

Hi Cathy- I'm glad I found your blog. I have enjoyed reading it~

As far as a favorite facial feature, I suppose it would be my smile, all without benefit of braces!

My eyes, of course. I can smile with them and show anger too. My big browns can flirt or be sad. They can say "shame on you" without sayng a word. Best of all I have a look with my eyes that says "don't mess with me"

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission "....to create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…
