Style and beauty gifts for women who are over 40, fabulous, and who DGAF


You know all those lists about things you shouldn’t wear over 40? Over 50? Over 60? Yeah, let’s throw those all out the window. (That’s the nicest way we could put it.)

The cool thing about hitting 40 — and beyond — is she gets to be a grown-ass lady who can own all her gloriousness any way she sees fit.

About our Sponsor


If it’s fabulous, useful, or necessary, you don’t want to lose it. The Tile Bluetooth-enabled tracking tags and now, stickers, help you find lost items in seconds: Your keys, your sunglasses, your wallet, your phone, your camera, your hot new handbag…you get the picture. 

Attach the tags or stickers to anything you don’t want to lose — say, some of those new holiday gifts you’re buying? — and use your phone to locate it by sound or see it on a map. Brilliant! And we use Tile ourselves, so we can totally vouch for how awesome they are.
