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



Hi everyone
Did you all enjoy your Easter holiday? I travelled down to Essex to spend mine with the family, time to take time out! I bought myself the latest edition of Good Housekeeping to read whilst there, mainly because some blogger acquaintances were featuring in there. How lucky are they? I would love to do that.
Anyway, reading the magazine I came across an article by Viv Groskop about unplugging all her media gadgets for the Easter bank holiday weekend. I thought about it for a while, and wondered how I would cope (I dare any of you to try this)

My first thought was, will I be missed? Now Viv did keep her mobile active but didn't use any other computing devise. Can you imagine staying away? The other half placed a bet that I wouldn't be able to do it!. Luckily enough my time was taken up by children and grandchildren visiting, but it was the guilt I felt for not liking the feed of my friends on Instagram, not responding on Facebook and not being able to see if I had any new friendly followers on any of these social media platforms!

Going to bed was the worst part. I always go through my Instagram when I get into bed, and I literally could not wind down, it was like stopping smoking!. So yes I did loose my bet, I ended up on the Instagram feed by Sunday evening.
How would it affect you if you were to do this? Would you give it a go? I have to say I thought it would be easy till I tried it! Let me know what you think
