Happy Valentine’s Day to all of us Baby Boomers

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day

By Boomeryearbook.com

As the day nears there are many who are pro and against Valentine’s Day. But, I just say this to everybody, there’s nothing wrong with a day of extra special lovin’! I’m a woman whose statistics classify as part of the baby boomer generation. I’m hmm, a mature woman of a certain age. Yet, while age has a number, a state of mind is ephemeral. You are truly as young or as old as you feel. Obviously, your state of mind has positive correlations to age, you hopefully become more mature and more composed. But, that doesn’t mean you become dull. All you baby boomer women out there, have no shame in looking forward to Valentine’s Day!

In the past few years the baby boomer generation has possibly been sending more V Day cards to their grandchildren and relatives, and not their loved ones. Maybe they’re single, or maybe they’ve just been married so long they just don’t bother. Many single individuals of the baby boomer generation complain that most everyone their age is already in a committed relationship. Well, that is simply not true. You’d be surprised how many “single” people you can find that ‘are of your time’. Some people grumble about networking sites or V Day parties for singles above 50 … they call it unfair classification. Look, if you’re single and above 50, you’re single and above 50 … what’s wrong with that!

This weekend please forget all your anti V Day principles and inhibitions (well not ALL!) and do something special for a loved one. For the baby boomer generation I have good news. There are so many websites and other information outlets about gift ideas and romance.

What do you buy a fellow baby boomer for V Day?

I think gift baskets are a great idea. Buy stuff that will remind you of the 60s and 70s. Remember those tie dyed shirts and slinkies? Remember “Leave it to Beaver” and silly putty? Remember Tootsie Rolls and peace necklaces? You get the idea. Find things relative to the baby boomer generation. Dig in your stuff and pull out things from the past. Wipe off that dust and sit down with a loved one and reminisce. Baby boomer women; this can be with your loved one or your best girlfriend.

Another thing that most everybody, young and old, from or not from the baby boomer generation, likes is gift certificates. I go crazy for spa gift certificates. There’s nothing like a great day at the spa. While that may seem too exotic for you, give it a try, it’s so relaxing. If spas aren’t your thing then that is just fine. All women out there who don’t know what to buy their baby boomer men: offer to have all of their music updated to CDs or to MP3 format. Trust me, they’ll never do it themselves and it makes for a great, if not very romantic, gesture.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all Baby Boomers. Cheers to us!

No….Mom Jeans are not cool: How to put the “cool” back into Boomer Fashion

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Sue loves her Mom jeans; the elastic band sits comfortably below her slightly bulging belly and the leg conveniently tapers to her ankles. Well the truth of the matter is the Mom jean flatters Sue about as well as a big brown potato sack does.

Women over the age of 50 tend to get quickly frustrated when it comes to finding something perfect to wear. Baby boomers can get lost in a sea of rules, fashion trends and age-appropriate concerns. Dressing after a certain age can be quite challenging.

How to put the “cool” back into Boomer Fashion

There’s been a subtle shifting from ultra-casual workplace clothes, but mature women still enjoy comfortable rather than fussy dressing. Experts suggest building your basic wardrobe around quality pieces reflecting personal taste, and adding tops, accessories or jewelry that are unstructured, chunky and informal. That way you look your best and feel confident in any situation, but you make a personality statement. Also you should base your choices on the people you deal with - who do you face day-to-day? Even while using personal flair, you want to make choices that suit your environment.

Fit and quality of clothes
A great fit is the most important thing! Look for high-quality clothing; you will get better fabrics and better cuts, which make a better fit.

Look for softer, neutral colors
Softer neutrals — navy, charcoal, black and khaki — are better for day outfits. But don’t go overboard, there’s nothing more depressing than looking into a closet filled with just blacks, dark blues and grays. You must be careful with having to much black against your face, it can look a little harsh. No wardrobe is complete without bright colors: Stay away from primary colors; instead go with jewel tones. Remember that black and white should be saved for evening.

Big and bold accessories:
When it comes to accessories, a bigger, bolder piece is better then lots of small items of sentimental jewelry. One strong piece is a very chic statement and very age appropriate.

How to put the “cool” back into Boomer Fashion

Office fashion: Wrap dresses are great, but women with larger chests can have problems with the fit. Some are so low-cut that you can cross the line from sexy to slutty. To keep from looking inappropriate, wear a sexy camisole underneath your dress. You can be sexy and draw attention to your cleavage without showing everything! Also, when wearing a dress, the right bra is critical. Make sure you get fitted for your right-size bra!When purchasing the right suit, color and fit are everything. Instead of bright-colored suits, wear neutral tones. You will get more use out of a neutral color, and it won’t look age specific. To add some color, wear a jewel-toned shirt under the suit!

It can be difficult to find the perfect casual outfit for a female baby boomer. You want clothes that fit well and are age appropriate. Remember, when putting a look together, that you do not need to follow your mother’s rules. You do not need to match perfectly! Think outside the box and be adventurous. The fact that a lot of marketing and new trends are geared towards the 20-somethings makes it more challenging for the boomer to shop. For inspiration you can look at TV shows like “Desperate Housewives, and Lipstick Jungle”, where women above their 40s dress to impress and make no apologies for it.

BOOMERS CONNECTING ONLINE

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

First and foremost, let me take a wild guess about the things you were possibly doing before you sat down in front of your computer to read this article:

  • Getting wet and wild bathing the dog.
  • Trying to jog around the neighborhood but stopped halfway to rest your aching feet (and soon decided to just go home and browse the web).
  • Justifying to your youngest daughter why you missed another one of your grandchild’s recital (while knowing the real reason is you totally forgot about it).
  • Taking off your golf shoes.
  • Searching for Adventure Travels and fantasizing about your next exotic flight.
  • Taste-testing first class wines at a new wine house in town;
    wondering how life would’ve turned out if you’re high school sweetheart were still by your side.

If any of the above seems like your choice of activity, then you probably were born between 1946-1964 - a certified baby boomer.

00031.gif

As young adults, baby boomers were quite busy revolutionizing the world and focusing on both individual as well as societal freedoms. Many sacrificed the luxury of “quality private time.” Although some of us boogied our way through the 70’s, most boomers ended up to be hard working, slightly obsessive compulsive professionals, politicians, and successful businesspeople. But now, for better or worse, our corporate days are nearly over. Now we can enjoy the things we dreamed of when we were still struggling with the tumultuous journey.
And since time now permits, the moment for recollection and reconnection is at hand. Ever wondered what happened to your classmate who burned his draft card on campus? Curious to know how the classmate you used to have a crush on turned out? Want to know whether your buddy has finally created his own rock-n-roll band?

Now there’s an easy way to find out.

Introducing Boomer Yearbook - a free and easy online social network dedicated to world wide boomers. Whether you just want to touch base with old friends or meet boomers around the world, this network offers you more than socialization. Have live chats with other boomers! Post up blogs and create your desired group!

Echo Boomers: Who are they?

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Echo Boomers: Who are they?

Now that most of the Baby Boomers are heading for retirement, a new generation is taking place - the Echo Boomers.

Why “echo boomers”? Born after the Baby Boomer era, the year 1977-1984 have been dominated by children of baby boomers. Thus the term “echo” - this signifies reflection of the boomers’ culture, beliefs and attitudes. Also known as Generation Y ( after baby boomers who were known as Generation X), the Echo Boomers are gradually setting an impact on the entire segment of the economy and society. It is predicted that they will become the next dominant generation in America as boomers age.

Echo Boomers have usually been regarded as “overachievers” and “over managed”. It isn’t a wonder why they ended up that way as since they were still kids, their parents - the boomers - have pampered them and taught them well, giving them the needed structure for psychosocial growth and development. To return the favor and please their parents, Echo Boomers based their actions on what their parents tell them to do.

Although deprived of riding a bike without a helmet, eating at a cafeteria that serves peanut butter, staying home during a recital, or riding a car without wearing a seatbelt, echo boomers have turned out to be special. They have become followers of rules, conventional individuals who hold traditional values. And although diversity is dominant in this generation, they respect differences and believe everyone should be part of the community.

Now that “Echo Boomers” is no longer an alien term, meet them and interact with them by joining Boomer Yearbook. An online social network designed not only for baby boomers but for echo boomers as well. Be informed of the latest trends and gadgets circulating the web, have fun chatting with others and learning about their ways. Don’t get left behind. Be part of this interactive network now!
