My Mother used to tell me that I’d get to 70, still feel 20 and wonder where all those years had gone – I thought she was mad but as I hurtle towards 60 I’ve started to realise that she knew what she was on about.

I’m not old, I’m still a child…I have stupid thoughts, I sulk and lose my temper over inconsequential perceived slights, I’m hardly fit to join the grown up world and yet I’m grey and slightly saggy and have adult┬ákids and a husband who’s edging towards retirement. What the hell happened?

I don’t want to be invisible, to be seen as old and past it – so this blog is an attempt to find the best that’s on offer out there. To find potions and lotions and wise advice that will help me feel good, look great and be comfortable in a world that idolises pert bottoms and wrinkle free skin.

Please join me in my quest, I’d really appreciate your thoughts and knowledge.
