Now that I'm 40!

Celebrated my 40th last week with a little treat getaway at Babington House.  Went via Bath to see our store and our ever  lovely girls brimming with excitement about the new ranges (lace and neon had hit down that day) and the Bath half coming up.  Quickly nipped into Space NK (one of my birthday resolutions...on top of New year's ones...is to wear make up more!!) and bumped into the tanned Nicky Kinnaird doing one of her customer sessions there.  It was rammed so I grabbed my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser and left her to it!  Babington, as ever, lived up to its laid-back gorgeousness and helped me come to terms with my age.

Turning 40, Im fine with it emotionally, but thoughts turn to the physical.  Wear more make up, look after your hair more and of course keep up with the exercise to stop the wobble factor!  Which means the right clothing as well.  A swimming/spinning friend told me last week that the best thing she had bought from Sweaty Betty recently were our sports shorts (underwear).  She said they made her bum look fantastic!  As you know, my favourite fabric is our miracle "sensitive" that I wear for swimming, running and cycling mainly due to its fantastic support.   Im also really excited about our seamless product this season as it is so much softer and has become almost gossamer-like.  For my Vogue shoot, I wore the neon apricot ejecta vest and the black anusara leggings all ruched up.  The texture and gathering details make them super flattering, so even though they are not compressively supportive, they are really comfortable and look great.
