Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Who's the Fairest of Them All?

Today I have finally gotten round to booking myself into the hairdressers for the full works. Well I say full works if only it were possible! I mean a colour, cut and blow dry. Last month  I decided to try and grow my hair out to it's natural colour as, I am sick and tired of having to go through the rigmarole of once a month sitting in that chair and being forced to look at my aging reflection for 2 hours. While the hairdresser at least makes my hair look youthful.

Roots need doing
I am a 51 year old woman who, I am ashamed to say, is hating the effects age is having on my body. The little wrinkles creeping around my eyes, the lines appearing around my smile and the crepe like skin playing peek-a-boo at various sites are slowly dissolving my confidence.

In a society where youth and beauty are synonymous where, does that leave me? I have achieved many things in my 51 years except, it would seem, the secret of eternal youth? I will tell you where! Queuing up for botox, fillers and the latest creams, potions and snake oils that promise to plump up that old, saggy skin.

Written down it reads like a line from a slapstick farce. 

Not much time today for mini making only had time to throw these together and get them listed.

  1. Wait until you're 65: then 51 will feel quite young to you again! ;)

  2. We're the same age! I embrace the signs of aging in my body - I don't dye away the grey or try to smooth the wrinkles. Actually, I find them quite distinguished-looking and attractive. What does concern me about aging is symptoms such as hypertension, loss of muscle mass, and bone density. As a result I've stepped up my exercise routine and embarked on a mission of good nutrition and enough sleep. Contrary to my expectation that it would feel like I've put myself in a torture camp, I have so much more energy and a positive state of mind; I feel YEARS younger.
    Forget about youth and beauty, this is the best time of your lives so far, and it's only going to get better!
