Stay tuned for my #ThisIs50Bitches column! #UNlifestyleBLOG #NOTagingGracefully > What’s your #BeautyBitch?

Betty, Jo, Jenn

Note: I’m the only 50+ year old here! I love this photo with my girlfriends, Betty (left) and Jenn (right) celebrating Jonathan Gold’s 101 best restaurants.

Honestly, I also love the tiny wrinkles around my eyes, nose and smile. They’ve never bothered me at all. The impending double chin creeping up on me, well that’s another story. Stay tuned for upcoming #BeautyBitch pieces on battling the under-chin bulge, waist trainers aka corsets (yes, I bought one), facial hair (ugh), dreaming of sweater sets (hot flashes) and MORE! #ThisIs50Bitches
