Hello AGAIN!!...I have been mulling over doing this post for a little while...(as it is a bit too self indulgent for my liking..)..
But there kind of comes a time where i need some...hopefully....positive reinforcement!!
OKAY...i think we all know i am turning 52 yo this year...
I have ALWAYS had LONG (longish...is there such a word??) hair..
I started off being a shy timid little girl...per photo...with my short hair!! (CIRCA 1960!!)..
Then had my first son...(per photo re me kissing him)...
Then me with my extra long hair in my early 30's!!!
I was always an original RED HEAD!! kind of faded a bit with "old age" ... although i credit it to lots of breastfeeding!! (i hope that doesnt sound offensive)..
SO I NOW need to go and get it "supplemented" so to speak every couple of months...(goodness knows..when i was younger..this would have been something silly OLD women go to do)..
SOO whilst in Japan i found this lovely mag...AND I want my hair to look like that on the cover...(it kind of looks like that anyway...but just needs touching up).. (per the photo)..
I still have hair kind of similar per the photo...(that is me just to the left of this mag photo...probably NOT too bad for an OLD???????)!!!
BUT i must say...lately...I have had quite a few people actually say to me.."you should start thinking about cutting your hair short now andrea...as you are in your 50's"!!!
OMG!! is this an AUSSIE thing?? why should i change my hair style after..nearly ALL MY LIFE.. just because I am in my 50's???
It is NOT that i am trying to be young/look younger etc...BUT that is all I know..I have a big pony tail playing tennis...tied with a bow matching my outfit...
sometimes I think AUSSIE women should TRY TO emulate the gorgeous CHIC style of their European counterparts...!!
SORRY about this little bit of a whinge... but it has played on my mind for a while now...(and I just like having long hair?? why should I just cut it short cos I am in my 50's?? )...
I dont quite get it??
BUT it has kind of depresssed me a little bit...
have a lovely week everyone..
