I heard someone say once that the ‘beast’ known as Hollywood forgives everything from a small indiscretion, to a huge scandal even a month at a Betty Ford clinic but not birthdays. This resonates so well with a quote attributed to the great Miss Bette Davis, one of my favourite actresses of all time, who said that “Old age ain’t no place for sissies”. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 I went through a midlife crisis at the age of 24, convinced that my best years were behind me. I also lacked focus and was in a state of perpetual sorrow, always dissatisfied with everything, in particular, the way I looked. I didn’t like myself very much and I was definitely far from being happy.
Something changed for me 3 years ago when I finally refined my look, became more comfortable in my own body and started appreciating life and what I had rather than yearning for what I didn’t! Now that I’m older and perhaps a little bit wiser I know, that happiness is the key to ageing, a real miracle worker better than the most expensive anti-wrinkle cream. The trick, of course, is finding what makes you truly happy, in my case, it’s definitely writing, taking ballet lessons, going on a date with my husband and buying a 1930s dress at a bargain price. 🙂 #vintagegirl #vintagehair #vampire #vintageblogger #corset #makeup #ageing #oldhollywood
