Beauty Rummage and the Cult Products I Can't Live Without

 & #WowOnWednesday

Beauty over 60 with London style blogger Is This Mutton.  Latest discoveries include Korean Erborian Super BB Cream and Japanese Suqqu Waterproof Mascara.

Dear friends. I won't lie to you, it has not been an easy week.  I lost my devoted companion Molly seven days ago and the grief has been intense. Last week I threw myself into work - blogging and cleaning. But the last few days have been more difficult.  I sent J to collect her ashes, which we will scatter on the garden on a sunny spring day. 

I jettisoned plans for an outfit shoot today when it started raining again.  Instead it's a good time for a periodic rummage in the makeup bag and a look at the products I consider indispensable. Plus the cult products I can't live without.  These would surprise the young beauty bloggers and social media managers I suspect. But we like to surprise them, don't we?

Denim - Not Jeans: Style Not Age Challenge

 Wearing a denim dress over 60. Gail Hanlon in midi denim dress from Asos with white ankle boots and orange belt.

Dear friends. Jacqui's challenge to style something in denim other than jeans turned out to be quite the challenge! I could have used my denim jacket but I styled it just last week and featured it here. I used to have a denim dress but it strained across the front buttons so I hardly ever wore it.  I do like a denim dress though, particularly for this transitional time of year, so I ordered this one from Asos.

Read All About It: March Books


Dear friends. I didn't think I'd read many books this month but the list is quite long, and shows what you can do what you put your mind to it! My post is late this month but I've managed to join the southern hemisphere link-up by the skin of my teeth! 

My books of the month are: 

Henry VIII: The Heart and the Crown by Alison Weir

Metronome by Tom Watson


Remembering Molly 2004 - 2023

 Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton on the life of her 19 year old cat Molly who died on March 22 2023

Dear friends. Sad news. My devoted companion Molly the Mouser has gone to the great garden in the sky. She was 19, we think, and had a long, happy life.
