Today is the BIG day. The day Style Forever launches in the UK, and I’m excited, at last. Exhausted, but excited too. As it says on the back cover, this book is for any woman who refuses to be invisible. Women of style and substance like Kay Montano (illustrated above), the London-born makeup artist who has worked with all the biggest and best fashion magazines and photographers in the world, and told me:
‘A woman reaches her peak around the exact same time that society and the media say she’s no longer relevant. It’s a strange conundrum. We are meant to get old and accepting this has been an epiphany for me. It’s great to finally feel liberated – and I don’t give a shit about not being cat-called.’
All the Style Forever stuff on top of my job at university, freelance commitments
and the blog has meant that I’ve been working relentlessly for the last year. So, I’m hoping
I’ve reached a point where I can sit back a bit and enjoy life. The plan for today, is to take it easy and then have a celebratory drink this evening with a couple of friends.
Thank you to all the people who loyally follow That’s Not My Age and have helped to make this book happen. The Old Lady Revolution has started, let’s continue to raise awareness of women who are in their prime. Let’s stay fabulous forever.
