I have been struggling with my beauty posts lately. I don’t like to share unless I am sure something is worth the money as there is just so much hype out there. As one ages, less is more.  Things you could get away with in your 30’s start to look ‘drag queen like’ in your […]

I am no expert, but at 48 I have to work hard to stop gravity taking its course. Lines and wrinkles don’t bother me but a sagging jaw, pigmentation and dull skin does. This year I am trying to shop less and invest more time in grooming.  It is an old fashioned concept but every […]

I cut my hair last year and didn’t realise how much more maintenance it was once it was shorter! I can’t use tongs anymore as I ended up with finger burns, even with those heat resistant gloves!  I loved to tie my hair up which is much  harder when it is  shorter.  I am also […]

I have botox a couple of times a year. It has worked well on one stubborn line on my brow that was really ageing.  Now my brow is so much better.  I only started in my mid 40’s and I feel that was the right time for me. I don’t want to start injecting all […]

I have been boring you all with my (fairly) constant complaining about the rapid collapse of my jaw line!  I always had a bit of a double chin but one morning I looked in the mirror and the skin under my chin had definitely headed south, and I looked like a sad puppy. Then, looking around […]

‘nature gives you the face you have at twenty, life shapes the face you have at thirty, at fifty you get the face you deserve’ I love this Coco Chanel quote. Ageing is a leveller.  As you get older there are no short cuts and even those women who avoided spots and had glowing skin in […]

Middle Aged Hair Syndrome, is that dull lifeless look that a lot of women, me included tend to suffer from after years of colouring and blow drying.  It is  exacerbated by the onslaught of grey hair as the hair itself becomes a lot coarser . Over the years I have been to all the big name salons […]

I am turning 46 soon and had held off having botox, until a couple of weeks ago. I am blessed to see a fabulous dermatologist Dr Lynette Yong and when I saw her last, she felt like I did, that it was time.  Not that I have a problem with botox, I think it is […]
