NextTribe women over 50 hygge

Everybody Needs Hygge, Especially Right Now

You might have noticed the current obsession with the Danish wellness tradition “hygge,” or at least the hashtag #hygge, which is nearing 3 million posts on Instagram.  Pronounced “hoo-gah,” it sort of sounds like “hug” and is synonymous with comfort, coziness, conviviality and warmth during the long, dark winter.

NextTribe hotflash finds old movie gem Love with the Proper Stranger romantic films

Falling in Love with an Old Movie Gem


The title Love with the Proper Stranger had long been lodged in my Boomer brain, yet I couldn’t remember actually seeing the movie during my youth, despite its five Oscar nods. I discovered the 1963 Natalie Wood–Steve McQueen film recently, and now can’t get it out of my mind. Is it a melodramatic, rom-com-like cautionary tale? Yes, yes, yes!

The Infrared Sauna Craze: Sweat So Sweet

New Treatment: Out Damned Age Spots

Those brown age spots that speckle our skin as we age have some pretty awful names, with “liver spots” being the one that makes me cringe the most. It not only conjures up the image of unwanted discoloration but also the taste of liver choked down during childhood.

Pretty (Not So) Young Things: Gray Haired Models

Remember that old Clairol ad slogan, “You’re not getting older, you’re getting better”? It seemed a bit like Madison Avenue B.S. at the time, but now it feels like people around the world are accepting the idea more and more.

One of our favorite examples: The Moscow-based modeling agency called Oldushka that specializes in gray haired models and won’t sign anyone under the age of 45. We love the idea of a desirable group that people could actually be too young to join.

Why Metallic Lavender Hair Is Suddenly the Rage

I was at the salon the other day getting my gray roots covered, and this 30-something woman with long, dark brown hair was asking for it to be dyed gray—that kind of “mermaid-y” lavender hair that has enticed celebs such as Kelly Osbourne, Zosia Mamet, and Rihanna (who doubled down—combining the extra super-long hair trend with a gray ponytail). With its own hashtags such as #grannygray and #grannyhair, this hair hue is becoming a full-fledged beauty trend.

Annette Bening, Liverpool and Boy-Toy Love

There are lots of buzz-worthy things about Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool: terrific performances by Annette Bening, Jamie Bell (remember him from Billy Elliot?) and a new song, “You Shouldn’t Look At Me That Way,” by Elvis Costello on the soundtrack. But the thing we want to talk about is the May-December romance at the heart of the movie. The movie shares how actress Gloria Grahame’s scandalous life intersected with that of actor Peter Turner in the late 70s, when she was 54 and he was 26.
