Well, I think it's time I face facts....I'm not as young as I once was. After recently turning 36, I've started looking a little closer into the mirror and am sure that I've noticed a few more wrinkles and white hairs. As many of you know, I am not someone who frowns upon aging...in fact, I really embrace it. I'm fortunate to have good genes and have been "blessed" with pale skin, so my age can be a little deceptive to some. However, I really do want to hold on to that as long as I can.
It's funny, I heard from my pal, Charla Krupp, this weekend as she is updating her book for paperback printing. A while back I assisted her with some research on Detroit area resources and she was kind enough to thank me in her book and even sent me an autographed copy (see pics below).
I thought the timing was perfect to plug the book, which I consider a beauty and style bible! Particularly for career women like me, who want to remain hip, yet age appropriate, while the women working around us keep getting younger. This book offers cheat sheets of to-dos and fast fixes that help keep you young looking. It's packed with eye-opening details on hair color, brows, lipstick, wrinkle-erasers, jeans, shapewear, jewelry, heels and more. The best part is that the book speaks to every woman: from low maintenance types who don't want to spend a fortune or tons of time on looks, to high maintenance women who believe in looking fabulous at any price. There's also too-old vs. just-right before and after photos, celebrity examples of good and bad style, shopping lists and much more.
Below is one of my favorite quotes from this MUST-READ book:
"It's the little black book for the gray-is-the-new-blond set! At our age we are evolved enough to understand that wrinkles don't matter....But who needs 'em? Buy this book and glow old gracefully!" — Christie Brinkley
