It is no secret that I turned 40 last year and as I have always said age by number doesn’t bother me. It never has. However one thing that has changed is that I wear more make-up than I ever have before. When I worked in school I always wore foundation and some eye make up. On my days off I tended not to bother even for the school run.
My kids do kindly point out that I am ageing but it seems that it is just not my kids as I asked some top bloggers what little crackers their kids had shared!
- Donna, who blogs at Little Lily Pad, daughter asked her why ‘she has lines on her head?’
- Liz’s son asked ‘When I am bigger, will I have a hairy bum like Daddy does?’ Liz blogs at Cambridge Mummy.
- Amy asked her mum who blogs at Mummy Alarm ‘Was it tricky to write with feathers when you were at school?” – I felt like a dinosaur!!
- Charlie once dropped his mum right in when he asked his friends Mom how old she was. She replied 41 to which he replied. Wow you’re so old aren’t you? Luckily Beth from Twinderelmo friends with the lady but was totally MORTIFIED!
It seems that it is our children that notice the ageing process!
Yet over the past few years I have been more aware of my redness or Rosace and therefore have invested in more expensive brands and make up with more coverage. I also changed my hair colour from dark honey blonde (from a bottle) to a much darker brunette. The dark brown is much more like my natural hair. I think it looks better on me now and I have also grown my hair longer. However I have now noticed some long sparkles otherwise known as grey hairs! Grey hair has been a hot trend in the past year and I like it on women, especially those with short hair. I don’t feel the need to cover all the grey but understand why some do in the same way others choose to go to Crown Clinic for hair treatments. I find it interesting that in men grey hair is seen as attractive and yet for woman it is seen as ageing.
Do you always try to fight the signs of ageing?
