Fashion and beauty blog for the more mature woman not ready to hang up the high heels yet.



Hi everyone
A very busy week it was for me! Helping friends move, and parties to go to. So apologies for my absence (did anyone really miss me?)  My friend had decided to up sticks and move to a house-boat moored along the Thames. I found this exciting and tried to imagine what it would be like.
So when we were asked to help move them on I couldn't wait to see. Beautiful place, and a lot more spacious than I thought it would be. I marvelled at the way the house-boat had such great organisation of way's to store everything.
Until I saw the wardrobe that is! This tiny little space would just about accommodate my under-wear! other than that I cant wait to visit when the weather gets better, it will be really beautiful, and the thought of a swan greeting me at the window in the mornings tickled me......

So then it was onto a party for a family member, and the first outing of a new frock. I love the tassel's on the back...

I found this Miss Sixty dress in T K max, the front is just plain so you can dress it up as much as you want

                         I must get my photographer to get the lighting a little better apologies!

I received a nice little parcel in the post from RaRa De Barr a jewellery brand from my home town in Essex

They sent me a cute little package containing necklace bracelet and matching earrings *

This is actually a good fit on me, you have two different lengths to put the catch on
