Over 40 Females

Inspiration: To continued to be moved and inspired by others who are pursuing their deepest dreams.

It has been said that 40 is the new 30. Or is it 20? Either way, fabulous women in their forties are emerging. Watch out world. Over 40 Females is the creation of Judy Goss, a former model and beauty editor. Her vision is to unite women through networking events,throughout the country; and ultimately the world.

Each month, there are a myriad of diverse gatherings, inviting women to meet and connect in fun and unique venues. Last night, an event was held at Lancome Boutique on Columbus Avenue. These events always pose a dilemma for me, what does a girl wear? I seem to possess the unique ability to either over or under dress at these functions. Last night was no exception. Since it was on the West Side, I donned a funky, flowing, low-cut black dress, flat metallic sandals and my best accessory; my long hair.:) We have to be ourselves right?

This event was focused on fashion and beauty. Becky Wenner, a blond, sexy, vibrant, fitness trainer, shared the stage with Judy. She gave those present a positive talk about exercise and commitment. I really admire her enthusiasm and zest for life. She is very passionate. Those with passion have the innate ability to draw others in. It was a very inspiring and uplifting evening on many levels.

Judy, and Becky, are both hosts on a new women's cable network called Newsbutterfly, launching next month. This network displays various segments on women's empowerment. The other anchors and executive producer, were on hand, mingling and filming. At one point I was conversing with two other lovely women when Newsbutterfly Tracey came over. The three of us were asked if we wanted to be filmed. I was nervous and excited as this is something I have never done, but felt a strong desire. It was such a "delightful" experience. A new level deep within me emerged. My spontaneous, in the moment, funny side. It is still there beneath all my zen-like demeanor.:)

Good people, divine connections and empowerment. What a wonderful evening it was. For all of us women over forty, remember, WE ROCK ! We are sexy, smart and sassy ( the three S's) Live with heart. Know that you are "awesome" and that anything is possible.

Have a very "peaceful" day.

With Love, Denise


  1. Denise, I love your writing style! Excellent. I am so sorry I didn't get to hang with the sexy OFF, but my schedule was packed last night. Can't wait to see your interview. Keep up the good work!

  2. Dear Susan,

    Thank you so much for the kind words. It means a great deal to me coming from you. You are a "vibrant", charismatic OFF. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
