Hilton Head Island Speaking Engagement

Speaking at the Prime Of Life Chamber of Commerce event on Hilton Head Island recently was an incredible experience.

The grand ballroom at the Marriott Hotel and Resort was the location for this event.

I wore one of my favorite looks by IC Collection provided by If you find that they have sold out of this very popular set, please email or call them from the information listed on their website. They will back-order the items for you.

The shoes are by Sam Edelman. The necklace is from S.M. Bradford Co., located at the Harbour Town Yacht Club on Hilton Head Island.

The camera was not cooperating very well. Sadly, this was the only photo that turned out from my talk.

I spoke about the benefits of eating a plant-based diet and how cultivating a positive attitude has impacted my health in the past five years.

I am already looking forward to my next visit to Hilton Head! With me above is Michelle Taylor, who owns a new shop on the island. Birdie James is opening this weekend at the Shelter Cove Towne Centre. One of my other favorite shops in the same Centre is the Copper Penny. I am shown below on another day with the owner Mary Margaret McGaughey.

Shelter Cove Towne Centre is a fabulous new Centre that offers many great places to shop, eat and browse. 

We really enjoyed being pampered for a day at the fabulous Faces Day Spa.

In the evening, we had a fantastic dinner with some of the hardworking members of the Chamber of Commerce at the Red Fish. It was the perfect ending to our first full day on the Island.

I was showered with genuine southern hospitality and gifts during my stay.

A Fifty, not Frumpy follower, Debbie Carr came all the way from Delaware to spend some time with me!

I enjoyed meeting many leaders in the community who attended the event and stayed to hear me speak.

The lovely woman with me below is a retired Physician. We were discussing how little training about nutrition is provided in Medical School. 

The warm and welcoming spirit of each person I had the pleasure of meeting this week, made this a delightful experience, I will never forget.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

A Speaking Engagement

The talk at the Johnson City Seniors' Center went really well on Thursday evening. Mr. Mickey graciously agreed to video the event for all of you who couldn't be there. 

We learned that my camera is not up to the task. Even though I had used the largest data card available, it wasn't enough to record all of the hour long talk. What we did capture is included on the two YouTube videos linked below.

I wanted to show respect to the people who came out to hear me speak so I dressed up a bit. I wore black Ivanka Trump dress slacks from Saks Off 5th with a black tank from Chico's and a slightly fitted jacket by Tahari via Dillard's. The shoes are by Louise et Cie via Nordstrom. The silver necklace is from Cali and York.

During my talk, I featured the perfect long sleeve top which is from Covered Perfectly. You can shop for it here.

This first video includes Part One of the talk.

Almost all of Part Two of the talk is in the second video below.

It was such a great pleasure to meet so many Fifty, not Frumpy followers and several women who did not yet know about the blog. Many of them stayed afterward to ask more questions and take notes.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
