"Celebrate Everyday and Don't Look at the Calendar..."

I have a major blog crush on Advanced Style. It is a beautiful blog about older women (and men) who have fantastic style. Ari Seth Cohen finds his subjects on the streets of New York city.
In a society that highly values and chases desperately after youth, it is quite refreshing to find people who are very pleased with their current stage of life and live to the fullest! I love all of their tips and advice. Check these ladies out...

Rita Ellis Hammer... Isn't she fantastic?

Take Ruth's advice. Numbers 5, 7, and 8 are my favorites...
100 year old Ruth's Life and Style Tips

1."I never go to bed with my makeup on. that is number one.At night you must let your skin breathe."
2."I use a lipstick brush to paint on my lipstick--It stays on longer that way. I can also use a lipstick longer than anyone else because I can dig into it."
3."Every night before I got to bed I use Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour beauty cream on my lips. You must keep your lips moisturized."
4."When it comes to fashion you must be aware of your skin tone. You don't wear orange lipstick with a red dress."
5."I make myself go out everyday, even if its only to walk around the block. The Key to staying young is to keep moving. You are never too old to exercise."
6."Invest in Quality pieces, they never go out of style."
7."Don't look at the calendar, just keep celebrating everyday."
8."I dress up everyday and I don't wear blue jeans. I dress up even to mail a letter, you never know who you will meet along the way."
9.I have been active my whole life. An old Elizabeth Arden Ad said,"If you want to look like this when you are 40 start when you are 20."
10.I wake up every morning and say, "This is the day the lord has made."

Evidence of celebration... :D
