I haven't been to a pool or beach in 
quite a while. I'm considering it now 
that I have retired.  I can go to the 
beach or pool when it’s not overcrowded!

My friends and I often discuss how our bodies have changed. Most of us don’t
care for the wrinkling and sagging! I am
no fashionista. But I have done enough shopping to know that there are swim
wear made to hide the undesirable!

I am on the hunt for swimwear that is
not too revealing and is comfortable 
to wear. I am looking for nice swimsuit cover-up too.

Here are some swimsuits that I saw in stores that were stylish and appropriate 
for the mature lady:



Cheap Cover up alternative can be
ladies night/sleepshirt, long t-shirt 
or big shirt from men's department!

I wear wigs in the winter to give my
hair a rest from frequent styling. The
weather has warmed up. I'm ready to 

throw my wigs in the drawer! 
I decided to get a new hairdo for
the spring and summer!  I love the 
tapered afro hair cut. I have salt and pepper grey hair.  I looked on Pinterest 
and YouTube for style ideas. This is the style I asked my stylist to do: 


I love to wear hoop style earrings when

I do the "Big Chop hair cut."  The earrings 
I wear with my afro are very important.
A pretty pair of earrings really enhance
the natural hairdo. 

I realized that my face size should be 

when I buy my earrings. I have a small

face and head so I avoid huge earrings.
Over- sized jewelry tend to be too dramatic

for me. I don't want my outfit to be play

second fiddle to large gaudy earrings. 

Here are some earrings I am planning  
to buy to wear with my short Afro:



I liked these earrings. They look
nice on these women:
