I turned forty recently, and it really was no big deal. Sure, my wrinkles are deeper, my grey hair is increasing (daily!) and my eyesight isn't perfect any more but who cares. I've had loads of fun.
There are of course those days when I look in the mirror and think, "what suddenly happened!?". But it's never anything a good lipstick and a sparkly pair of earrings can't fix (and maybe the odd glass of wine).
And here I've illustrated my favourites - bought with Anthropologie vouchers that were a gift from my family for my big birthday. They are comfortable and they look gorgeous, my little modern treasures. They aren't on sale any more but I just looked online and there are so many that are just as beautiful. Roll on Christmas I say, I know what will be on my list!
