Getting older ain’t all bad. Generally, with age, we get to feel more comfortable and confident in our own skin. Sure, a few things might have headed south and our skin may not be as plump as it was in our teens but by now we should have a major slice of sass on our side and know when not to give a damn!
For everything else, there’s usually a strategic lifestyle hack, a scientific skincare break- through or an age defying idea that you can incorporate into your own daily life in order to stay looking and feeling forever fabulous. That’s really what fabfitforty is all about and why I decided to start writing this blog.
As Audrey Hepburn (who was just stunning in later life, see pic above) said,
We all want to look younger for longer and that starts from within, by having the right attitude and by embracing being a woman.
Bollocks to growing old gracefully. Grow old disgracefully if that’s what you want to do.
Wear those Jimmy Choo’s. Rock those leather trews. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too old for anything! Age is just a number; as long as you are happy, healthy and true to you, who gives a damn?
There are of course loads of things you can do to “age proof” yourself and to maintain the optimum you. From skincare, to hair, fashion to facials, rejuvenating juices to restorative sleep, we’ve got it all covered at fabfitforty.
I’m living and breathing all this stuff. Rubbish pic again and I look knackered but those are indeed leather trousers and I LOVE wearing them. I might get buried in these if they still fit.
I’m 46 in a month’s time which means my next big birthday is 50. Holy shit! How the hell did that happen? I still don’t own a house for pity’s sake. I’ve no savings in the bank for a rainy day let alone my retirement. Today I have a couple of bottles of sparking water in my fridge, some parmesan and some vodka! What kind of a grown up am I!!!
I do however know a thing or two about what to wear, which accessories you need to pull together to complete an outfit, my AHA’s from my BHA’s, the best facials for rejuvenating your skin, the exercises to tighten your booty and the calorific content of all booze!
I’m a veritable font of fabulous knowledge and I’m here to share it all with you!
So join me on my fabfit 40’s journey as I only have 4 of the buggers left before I need to start-up a new blog. #foreverfabulous #fabfitforlife
