Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Today’s News for Women over 50. This series of posts are the products of my research around the worldwide web and curated into a series of news articles that I believe will be of interest just for you ….the vibrant, intelligent women over 50. As I have said before, elegant women are informed women. If there are any health decisions you contemplate after reading something here, I do encourage you to discuss any changes in your health maintenance with your primary physician to make certain you are making the best decision for you. I have something fun at the end today, so with that said, here is today’s news……
THE CLOSET PURGE
readers have joined me in a desire to purge the closets while we are spending more time at home. Good Morning America featured an expert to offer guidelines. Never hurts to hear other ideas! Watch: Quarantine closet makeover: KonMari consultant and home stylist Kristyn Ivey shares her best tips.
NEXT, DEEP CLEAN WHAT STAYS BEHIND
I do have several headlines this week related to the pandemic. I am hoping these will help some of us as we navigate through this challenging time around the world. Parade Magazine shared a laundry hack on their site originally from Tik Tok. Since I do not believe that many women over 50 are on Tik Tok, I thought you might appreciate seeing this story and get the clothes ready which survived the great purge! Look over: This Laundry Stripping Hack went viral on Tik Tok, and now everyone’s deep-cleaning their clothes.
HAND CLEANING COMES WITH WARNINGS
The first time I learned something new about hand sanitizers was a few weeks ago when it was announced not to leave it in a hot car…especially during heat over 100, because it can explode and catch the car on fire. Got my attention here in South Texas and I rapidly removed it from our cars and told my children. However, several media outlets came out with disclaimers which said it was unlikely that could happen. I left it out anyway. Here are a couple of stories from AARP on hand sanitizers that you might find equally as interesting:
SOMETHING THAT WON’T BUG YOU
Mosquitos…they are pesky little creatures that spoil our outdoor fun this time of year. I will try anything to keep them away and not have to rub poison all over my arms and legs…or my grandchildren. When I saw on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show this story, I thought you might want to know about it. Here is All-Natural Homemade Bug Repellents.
NOW THAT THE BUGS ARE TAKEN CARE OF….
We have the bugs out of the way or on their way to being out of the way…It is natural that after being shut in…the days are longer…the sun is shining…that we would desire to be out more. So from Very Well Health, here is How to Safely Host a Cookout according to the Center for Disease Control.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
Before we end with something fun, I have a couple of articles concerning good health. Remember to discuss anything you read with your primary care physician before you make big changes. I will be the first to admit that I do not exercise 300 minutes a week. Now, I want to know if that is true. See what you think of these two articles;
- From AARP: 10 Things You Can Do Right Now to Help Prevent Cancer
- From Alzheimer’s Prevention Bulletin: Scientists Study Whether Aspirin Can Help Reduce the Risk of Dementia
MEET AN ELEGANT WOMAN
Because a reader asked me to show examples of women I considered to be elegant, I thought I would introduce them occasionally on the news posts. Please meet the stylish and fabulous Judith Boyd from The Style Crone.
I first discovered Judith shortly after I began to blog and was immediately taken with her style. She defines the word “fabulous.” But, it was her journey at that time of her life that truly captivated me as she shared her love story with her husband and his struggle with cancer. She took readers along with her through the sickness and then the goodbyes. She has persevered and thrived since then. You will love reading her blog and seeing how she displays elegance in every way.
Please share your thoughts on any or all of these headlines….enjoy today’s Fabulous Finds slideshow…and always, ladies……
JUST A NOTE:
There are several ways that I generate income through this blog in order to cover business expenses and give myself much needed income. Purchases through the slideshow links is one way, ads on the page is one way and a new way is through ordering or re-ordering the GOLI Apple Cider Vinegar gummies through me with my GOLI LINK HERE. Again, if you are not familiar with the benefits of apple cider vinegar, you should speak with your personal physician. My husband and I are sold on the benefits and I am proud to represent this product. I am going to leave this at the bottom of my posts so that when you, friends or family would like to order you can use my link. Thanks for the support. This is a great product; as well as, the ones below!
Mr. B and I love our meals from Sun Basket!
