Fabulous at Forty, Fantastic at Fifty, Super at Sixty, Spectacular at Seventy

Extraordinary at Eighty
Extraordinary at Eighty Plus
Extraordinary at Eighty…. I think you get my drift.  To my mind, age has no place in beauty, young or old, it is all about an attitude of mind and a zest for life.  I know this from personal experience.  I am fortunate enough to be the daughter of two indefatigable octogenarians, who give absolutely no house-room to concepts of slowing down, retiring quietly or ‘taking things slowly’.   Having just celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary, they are still living life at full throttle, active in their community, dedicated to their family and sociable, thoughtful and caring to friends.

My Mother still takes enormous care over her appearance.  She is far more daring than me with colour, has the art of accessorising down to a tee and has never looked dowdy or frumpy in her life.  She loves to try new beauty products, be that skin care,  make-up or treatments. In my late forties, I am a mere whipper-snapper compared to her.

So, I am really looking forward to this coming weekend (10th-11th May), when we’re having a lovely day out together at the Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty Show at London Olympia (details here). The show is dedicated to beauty tips, tricks and secrets – but, refreshingly, not for teenagers or twenty-somethings, but for ‘youngsters’ like me or ‘slightly more mature’ ladies like my Mum.

The show features hundreds of exhibitors (full list here), there are 4 different stages with live presentations, talks and demonstrations (programme here) and lots of opportunities for mini-treatments (show dates 10-11th May 2014, London Olympia)
We’re going to be taking advantage of  The Neal’s Yard Remedies VIP Experience, which includes:
SkinPep samples, Forever Living – Aloe Soap & Moisturizing Lotion, Heliocare Fluid Cream, Dr Ceutical Neck & Chest Lift, Exuviance – Hydrating Hand & Body Lotion, Egyptian Gold After Tan Facial Mask and Rehydrating & Rejuvenating Serum, Studio 10 – Age Reverse Perfecting Lipliner, Harper’s Bazaar Magazine​ and more!
Fast track entry - so no queuing!
Access to a VIP Lounge – do like a sit down and a breather from the crowds :)
A complimentary glass of champagne – lovely, bubbly
Luxury Neal’s Yard Remedies organic treatment – Can.Not.Wait.
Personal skin analysis from The Cosmetic Imaging Studio – v.v. interested in this
A fantastic goody-bag worth over £250 – Goody, Goody Indeed

  1. Gosh, your parents look great, hope for your sake it's in the genes! Love the sound of the show, especially the VIP Day pass, going to see if I can persuade a friend to come with me for a treat.
