For Pit-ty Sake

This Nifty at Fifty post is all about a healthy way to stay fresh. In concern for my health I recently began removing chemical laden products I use and Aluminum Chloride found in under arm antiperspirant was one of the first to go. I tried quite a few products before finding two that I really believe in. One is made right here in Calgary, Alberta and the other is made in Austin, Texas the birthplace for many natural products. I warn you now, you literally detox the chemicals in those drug store products for about a week or so before these products work ( see explanation below).  Stay patient, they work very well once you have detoxed.  Just about every health food store in Calgary carries routine and I personally order primal pit paste online and it is delivered to my door – costs are  considerably less with primal paste even with delivery charges. Consider the switch today.

 

 

In A Blazer Of Glory

Todays Nifty at Fifty post is all about the Blazer.  With the smell of fall in the air comes layering and nothing pulls a look together faster then adding a Blazer to your outfit.  Dressy or casual, a Blazer will complete your ensemble in a matter of seconds- some would even consider it an accessory you can’t live without.  Here are a few you can get your hands on even if you can’t leave the house  thanks to online shopping and some candid street shots of women working the look. Be a trail Blazer!

Nailed It

Today’s Nifty at Fifty post is all about nails. In an attempt to simplify, I have decided to edit my nail colors, stick with a good manicure and stay away from artificial nails in an attempt to spend that money saved on more luxurious habits. It’s all about building a uniform at this age and that goes for your nails. Here are some neutrals that I have grown to love with a couple of reds thrown in for good measure- if it’s good enough for the French women, it’s good enough for us!

Today’s Nifty at Fifty post is all about tights. Pre fall shows for 2016 brought back the patterned tight and those  naughty little fishnets – did they ever really go away, not according to French women.  With a fall chill in the air and legs that did not really see the summer sun, I am now rejoicing that I can throw on some tights with my favourite skirts and dresses.  Any age and any size can work with this relatively inexpensive accessory and update your current your wardrobe.  From H&M, The Bay, Nordstom to Holt Renfrew, everyone is carrying this trend- pull a pair on those pins today!
