"grown up and gorgeous" in your 40's



My sister and I have started Op Shopping together in the school holidays.  Sometimes one or both of my nieces will come too which is delightful as I don't have any girls to shop with.

This little book as you can see cost me the princely sum of $1.00 and today while hunting in the study for some minutes I found it...again...

Contents include beauty, wardrobe, body, health and living.

I started on the "beauty" section today and how depressing...I'm sure they're describing people in their 60's aren't they?  They suggest botox, brow lifts, liposuction, plasma resurfacing, Intense Pulse Light, Fraxel laser, and radiofrequency treatment.  There are a couple of sensible suggestions, quit smoking, use sunscreen, eat well and exfoliate.  If I do these and start on the first lot of suggestions I may be able to avoid plastic surgery or at least delay it!!!!  What a ray of sunshine that is....

Oh goodness now I'm losing my hair - well according to the book chances are it's starting to thin.  Yes, actually they're right but only because my hairdresser does it.  As for grey hair, I would actually agree with the book that it did start to go grey around 10-12 years ago...  They suggest "softer, lighter colours are kinder to the aging face".  Ok I think they may be onto something with the hair colour.

Looking forward to reading the chapter "wardrobe".

Enjoy your Sunday night and love the skin you're in!

I'll happily pass it on to you. They had one there for ladies in their 60's - hate to think what advice they had for them.

PS You'll love the fabulous 40's.

Maybe I will just skip the 40's book and go for the 60's cos thats how I feel....did they have one for the 80's..or by then do you just give up....?

I'd like to think I'll still care when I'm in my 80's but somehow don't think it will be on my list of priorities. I'll be happy just for someone to pluck those pesky "grandma hairs" off my face.

I don't need any inspiration to drink wine. It just seems to come naturally ;) This is just a bit of fun and learning new things makes sure I don't turn into Alice.
