And FYI…Grace Bay Club has teamed up with the quintessential California women’s designer to launch a limited edition capsule collection in a bright, new print conceived and created exclusively for the resort.
With the Trina Turks & Caicos collection, women can rest easy knowing the limited edition line is available in a number of styles that are perfectly suited (no pun intended!) for all shapes and sizes. The halter one-piece offers full support and coverage for women looking to reveal little, while the string bikini is best for the not-so-shy. The halter bikini with hipster buckle bottom is a sultry combination of both, offering support but minimizing those pesky tan lines. And of course, for those who prefer to protect their skin from any of the sun’s damaging rays, Trina Turk also designed two tunic styles for the collection.

Here’s an interesting piece courtesy of Kate Forgach. This one can actually make you go…”nooo waayyyyy”. I cannot ever imagine my grandmother dating and not being either widowed or married! It’s shocking to learn that seniors 65 and older are amongst the dating sites looking for “Prince Charming” (to get married)!
Romance Has No Expiration Date
So you think marriage is for the young? Check this out: As of the 2010 U.S. Census, more than 16-million unmarried Americans were 65 and older. But these single seniors aren’t willing to sit on their laurels; Between 2006 and 2007 there was a 140-percent increase in senior online dating.
Clearly the message that marriage makes you live longer has made its way to the over-65 crowd. Seniors also have learned the effectiveness of online dating sites. According to a 2011 international study conducted by the Oxford Internet Institute and funded by eHarmony, middle-aged men and women were the most likely people to use online dating sites, a statistic that particularly holds true for seniors.
With these glaring statistics to back up entrepreneurs, many new businesses have arisen catering to seniors interested in relationships. Here’s a sampling.
1. Dating Sites
Let’s see; There’s SeniorMatch, SeniorPeopleMeet, DatingforSeniors, SeniorFriendFinder, PrimeSingles, SilverSingles, DatingForSeniors…pant, pant, pant. And we’re just getting started. More commonly known sites, like Match.com and eHarmony, also appeal to the over-65 crowd. And let’s not forget AgeMatch, which targets cougars and sugar daddies seeking companionship out of their age range.
An interesting aside to this category is the research findings of two Bowling Green State University professors of gerontology. In the early stages of the study, they’ve found indications that seniors market themselves different on dating sites than their youthful counterparts. Appearance and status drop to the bottom of profiles while compatibility and self representation are priorities.
2. Gift Registries
Soon-to-be-wed seniors likely don’t need another blender, so alternative registries are proving just the ticket. CardAvenue is a wedding gift registry that lets them register for desirable gift cards, including those for stores, airlines, gas, etc. Cloud9Living allows couples to register for desired experiences, like hot-air ballooning in the Rockies, taking gourmet cooking classes in Houston, race car driving in Las Vegas, and much more.
3. Wedding Websites
Personal wedding websites are the latest rage, and WedShare.com in particular has reached out to seniors with it’s easy-to-use message. The company provides a free domain name, customizable website themes and matching eCards, a monetary gift registry with PayPal, and much more. Other similar sites include MyWeddingHosting.com, eWedding.com and Momentville.com. To comparison shop, check out WeddingWebsites.com.
4. Therapy for the Kids
Roughly 500,000 Americans over the age of 65 remarry each year, and most already have adult children, according to Grace Gabe, a psychiatrist and co-author of “Step Wars: Overcoming the Perils and Making Peace in Adult Stepfamilies.” Remembering their parent’s former spouse, the kids may have trouble accepting a new relationship. This has opened up an entirely new species of therapist. While many cater to younger audiences, there are those who provide assistance to both young and old alike.
5. Prenuptial Agreements
No longer a legal document solely for the rich, lawyers are creating prenuptial agreements designed specifically for seniors looking to protect their children’s inheritances or not interested in once-again paying alimony.

Yvonne Ryding, head of eponymous skincare line, advises Media Maven readers on how to get “that glow.” HINT: It doesn’t start with face cream
“When I give my lectures, my audience must expect me to talk about the skincare line, but there are so many other important factors to a woman’s well-being,” says Yvonne.
Yvonne has always been interested in taking care of herself. As a young girl she was involved in gymnastics and soccer, and as a young adult, she enjoyed the enviable status of global pageant queen (Miss Universe 1984) and international model.
These days, Yvonne is a prominent and inspirational figure in Sweden, and regularly contributes to popular television. And while she founded Yvonne Ryding skincare upon the strict notion of natural, cutting edge research and ingredients, the key to beauty does not start with face cream. Yvonne is a mother and a company owner, and so she knows that in order to thrive, it is important to take care of yourself. “Think about the mind and your soul. Give yourself some time to be with yourself in meditation.”
Yvonne Ryding believes that exercise helps you glow from the inside. But, “it’s important that you enjoy your workout,” she says, “so that it doesn’t feel like a chore. If you love walking, then just walk! Do you ice skate? Then ice skate!”
And be mindful of what you put in and on your body. “Think about how you eat. Good food helps you think. Be good at giving your body water so that you can rinse it out and cleanse.” And don’t forget your beauty sleep, she says. “If you’re not sleeping well and giving your body rest, then your body won’t have time to rejuvenate.”
Yvonne’s stance on anti aging is consistent with her belief in a balanced joyful lifestyle. She maintains the importance of food, sleep, drinking water and exercise. “If you combine that with a commitment to taking care of your biggest organ by using natural products, then you will get a really wonderful glow around you.”
With “spring” in the air, everything fresh, new, beautiful & eco/green is in bloom.

I was very pleased to learn about Olli Lolli’s Organic Cotton Hoodies, which come adorned with a special Olli Pocket™ to hold those vital meds!
Olli Lolli Allergy Aware Apparel Inc., offers a line of apparel that allows kids with life-threatening conditions, such allergies, asthma or anaphylaxis, to wear their emergency medication, instead of carrying it in a pouch, purse, fanny pack or knapsack that could be easily lost.
