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

About Me

Hi, my name is Laurie, I would like to welcome you to my blog. If you have taken the time to delve into my pages I am truly grateful. I was born in Essex in 1963, my profession is hairdressing and beauty therapy.

From a young age, I have loved all aspects of fashion, when I first started senior school I would trade my lunch money for Vogue Magazine! Naughty, but I just couldn't resist those glossy pages. I left school and entered the world of hairdressing, and in my time have had three salons. I am married with three children and eight grandchildren. I live in west London now and divide my time between here and Essex.

I read a page from a magazine about blogging and was blown away, my mind was buzzing for the next few days and decided I had to give it a go. I am passionate about all aspects of fashion and beauty and even more so for anti ageing remedies! So hop on board and let me share with you the knowledge of what I have learned through the years.

If you enjoy what you read, please subscribe to catch each post as soon as it goes live.
XO Laurie
