Cool wind in my hair

Yep, still going.
In one month from today I will turn 45.
Sounds bloody weird when I say it out loud.
What does it all mean, anyway?!
It's not going to mean giving up being fabulous, I can tell you.
It might mean being even more fabulous!!!
Is it possible?!
Excuse me whilst I have a nanna nap and dream of the possibility of being ultimately, emminently FABULOUS!!!
I reckon being over 40 is like anarchy, or bloody well should be if it isn't!
Who's with me?!

Yes 45 IS bloody wierd, seems to me it must be someone else...you know, someone grown-up! Thats what I always think anyway!!

In all seriousness, of course it's possible to be more fabulous, esp. with you to show us how !!!

Actually I think I follow more over 40 bloggers than I do bloggers in their 30s. You guys are leading the way, and you all look totally amazeballs!!! Btw, that dress is gorgeous! Xx

I'm only a year or two behind you, darling, and I am hoping that one day, if I work reeeeeeally hard, I might be almost as glamorous as you!

Well you don't look it! that dress and flower crown are freaking awesome! Loooove it! I love that you encourage me to be true to myself and look at age as seriously nothing but a number to mark how long you've been fabulous. I love that you've been fabulous for over 40 years. Love ya babe! Hearts, janna lynn

tralala said...

Darling H - I'm over 50 - don't sweat it. Life is sweet, people will stare - make it worth their while :)) I'm looking forward to my over-60's discount on bleaching my roots and keeping me PINK lol.

Looking regal in that frock, missus xxx

Lena said...

Oh that dress! The lawn! Fab, fab, fab!x

Rose&Bird said...

If I'm half as fabulous at 45 as you are I'd be more than happy! Looking brilliant and always a perfect antidote to the dreariness that is Britain at the moment x

Style Sud-Est said...

Fabulous Helga! 45! nai! i thought you were 39 or something, GOOOD GOD looking fabulous and you will remain fabulous girl!

Ariane xxxxx

VintageBirdGirl said...

Wow absolutely fabulous frock! Definitely brings a smile to my face :)

Mrs Munster said...

Age really has nothing to do with being fabulous. Not even looks. Just the attitude and view in life - and yours seem to be just in the right place!

Bohemian vanity said...

Hey wow awesome !!! Love the last pic ! xoxo

Vix said...

When I was a teen & a twenty something I used to hang out with women in their 40s as I found them way more interesting. I couldn't wait to get there myself.
The gang I'm out with on Saturday are all older than me, from 47 to a 73 year old and I bet we'll stay out all night and have a blast.
That's one fine frock and headpiece.
Age ain't nothing but a number, baby! Bring on retirement!
Love you!

You rock 44 and you will own 45. MEOW sex kitten!

Beautiful Helga! I agree with Lakota, you could very well be a lady on the front of a Viking ship! I bet the Vikings would like you ravage you in that frock! xxx

Your hair is utterly gorgeous and I am totally digging the frock!
45 for you.... is like 30 in Helga years. FOR GOD sakes I thought we were the same age. ;)

Have a good nap gorgeous

Hannah said...

You are amazingly fabulous and you will rock 45 like no other! x

Trees said...

You get more fabulous each year...btw your dress told me it wants to come to Wellington on holiday and live in my wardrobe with my dresses....

Straight Talking Mama! said...

It seems to me that only fabulous women are 45 ;o)

owlinalarkworld said...

Yes, yes it does mean being fabulous.
The last shot is v arty. :)

Miss Peregrin said...

Love that frock so much (and your lovely hair)! I think it's definite that 45 will mean you get even more fabulous. Assuming that is physically possible of course.

IMAN said...

I'm pretty sure you will dressing the same way when your 85. Frocks in abundance and floral headresses galore. Just continue to wear, do, and say hilarious things. You are so entertaining.

pinktutu72 said...

POSSIBILITY of being fabulous??? It's more like CERTAINTY!!

Ofelia said...

You look fabulous and so darn colorful!
I'm older than you and I can only tell you that you get to be more of yourself as you get older so I'm looking forward to see more colors and lovely prints adorning you!
