I am completely obsessed with grey hair. I made the choice to stop colouring my hair a couple of years ago, and after the initial confrontation of watching it turn grey and feeling like it would age me - which I don't feel it has - I absolutely love it and would never go back. There seems to be more of a trend nowadays of women allowing themselves to go grey and owning it. I have found some women have even started their modelling careers once they have done this and modelled for top designers…. looking as hot as ever. There is so much pressure as women for us to stay looking young instead of being able to look great, and even sexy, while ageing gracefully. I know from my own experience that my hair is now shiny and healthy , no longer falling out in clumps from the constant bleaching and colouring that I felt I had to do in order to hide the greys…. and most of all my age.
It is a process to allow your natural colour to come through and I did it by highlighting my dark hair with blonde so the change was not so drastic. Then cutting it off short once it had grown about 6 inches to finally get it long again. A process that was a little tedious at times but well worth it.
I have found a group of women that look amazing , and contemporary, for inspiration…….even young girls are dying their hair grey.
It rocks. :) x

I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
