Just another middle aged lady spending her retirement fund trying to keep her hair blond instead of grey. Not a simple process any more. Dye all of the hair one color. Streak in two other colors. Every 6-8 weeks. It's crazy really. I tried letting it grow out all the way grey. I looked 100 years old and invisible.
I had to wear full on make up to just look 80. Sample above. In 2010... at 58.
I know the feminists out there will raise their eyebrows but I want to feel good about how I look. And take pride in it. Wearing clean clothes, for instance. I run into so many older folks who have food stains on their shirts. Or no longer take things in to be dry cleaned. The image I receive is OLD and tired of caring. Maybe it is being frugal.
The above pic is me, WITHOUT ANY MAKEUP. Poolside, in fact. But I still like that look better than grey. Now I better take a pic of me, blond and WITH makeup!
I'm so vain ....
