My Mum at 76 Forever Young Forever Beautiful her Top Tips

 

1. On Beauty:

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise and drink lots of water…

My Mum uses whatever moisturiser takes her eye either from the supermarket or the stores ‘nothing special’ she says. She also advocates protecting your face from the sun.

2. On Style

Keep it simple, make sure you are comfortable and use accessories to add a little sparkle.

 

My mum always wears earrings when she goes out and still loves to wear her jeans and t-shirts, and why not? , they suit her  down to the ground and she looks great in them!

3. On life

Having had more than her fair share of tragedy and disappointments during her 76 years my Mums advice is simple…

 

Treasure your friends

 

Her favourite saying when life gets tough is ‘this too shall pass‘ something I always try to remember.

5. On Attitude:

 

Enjoy what you have now, don’t pine for the past or look too far into the future…

 

I guess she is saying what we all know to be true, live in the moment while you can and appreciate all the little joys?

    WOW! Your mum looks fabulous — you can certainly see where you get your looks from Ashley. I love her ‘attitude’ quote too — I might adopt that myself. What a lovely way of looking at life. CX
