Although I am not quite ready to start wearing boots full time because it makes me think about snow, I did however, wear a pair last week. I also wore my little black suede booties which I prefer because they are uber cute and comfortable.
This colorful striped dress was thrifted from Goodwill and not only do I love the wonderful colors but also that it is forgiving. It hugs where it’s supposed to and it’s loose where it needs to be!
I chose to wear a multi color bracelet but now that I see this pic, it appears lost!
Pencil skirts and short sleeves are my go-to outfits for work. I do not like to be overheated and I would rather wear short sleeves under a sweater or blazer and you ladies of a particular age know exactly what I mean. #menopause
I normally wear silver tone jewelry with black so with this outfit I have on silver hoop earrings, multi-strand silver tone necklace, silver cuff bracelet and zebra stripped silver ring and watch.
Next week I will be wearing my blue suede booties of which I have two different pairs so stay tuned for those outfits of the day.
How about you, what do you like better, over the knee boots or do you prefer to wear booties?
Happy Thanksgiving – eat, drink and be merry!!!
After we reach age 50, are there still some things that mom knows best? Well, as you’ll see in this funny video “The Other Talk”, the answer is a resounding YES, especially when it comes to postmenopause.
“The Other Talk” uses the premise of ‘the talk’ recognized as a cultural event in life where mothers talk with their teenage daughters about sex. “The Other Talk” expands this coming of age tradition to the next generation with a hilarious take on how that conversation unfolds some 40 years later!
“Until recently, I was unaware that many women are uncomfortable or embarrassed to discuss symptoms of postmenopause, and therefore, suffer in silence,” says Emmy-nominated actress Brenda Strong, who is known for her role on Desperate Housewives and Dallas. “That’s why I welcomed the opportunity to work with Pfizer on the “Let’s Talk About Change” campaign to help transform the way we think and talk about postmenopause and empower women to take action to find relief.”
She also encourages women to take the following steps to help manage the physical changes that happen after menopause and change their mindset about aging and postmenopause.
CHANGE YOUR AWARENESS
Both menopause and postmenopause are a normal part of aging. Menopause is what happens when a woman’s menstrual period stops for 12 months in a row, typically around the age of 51. While each woman’s experience is different, some women experience symptoms such as hot flashes, trouble sleeping, night sweats, moodiness and urinary problems. However, postmenopause also brings changes to women’s bodies. Postmenopausal vaginal atrophy (or the thinning of vaginal tissues) can occur, and without treatment, symptoms can worsen. Symptoms may include: severe vaginal itching, burning and dryness, painful intercourse, urinary urgency, and painful urination.
CHANGE THE DIALOGUE
If you’re experiencing these postmenopausal symptoms, you’re not alone! Nearly one third of women experience these symptoms after menopause. To help find relief, it’s important to speak openly and honestly with your healthcare professional as well as your partner. Find some tips for starting these conversations here: Change the Dialogue.
CHANGE YOUR OUTLOOK
What else can you do to help manage the stress that can sometimes come with menopause and postmenopause? Laugh! Menopause is a normal, natural event—not a disease—so why not have a little fun with it? Check out “The Other Talk,” which features Strong to help raise awareness about the symptoms of postmenopause and encourage women to speak up and take action to find relief.
