Take a Compliment Like a Man

By Marjie Killeen, Contributor- Midlife Wisdom

As part of my midlife crisis, I’ve been considering the theme of empowerment.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
