I am pleased to share my favorite sites for boomer girls. Some of these sites are blogs written by women in midlife and some are collaborative sites featuring a variety of midlife bloggers. Others are sites that I enjoy reading on topics including beauty and fashion, health and wellness, and travel and leisure.
If you would like your blog or website to be included on my blogroll please contact me or leave me a comment about your site.
