Just another of those crazy old sayings that have some obscure origin!
Or would it be more appropriate to say that I look like I've been sucking lemons?!
I think I have a bit, actually.
Definetly been struggling with my moods lately.
Being on the precipice of menopause doesn't help, I'm sure, but above and beyond that I just seem to have an consistently intense sense of impending doom that I just can't shake....
And it's not my 45th birthday tomorrow getting me down!
I'm fine with that.
I'm down with that!
Funnily enough, the hardest bit for me, regarding age, is just where do I fit?
Do I even need to "fit" ?!
That's a rare bit of Helga dribble!
Frocking up, playing with bits of bling is a nice diversion.
It may seem frivolous, but it does help me maintain my sanity!
Some may say that I look like I am insane at times, however!
Just exactly what sanity is is certainly up for debate!
But I think I look rather classy here; ladylike, even.
All 3 brooches were opshopped at different times, and I love the sworn and battered look of the faux pearly one on the left.
G gave me the earrings, and the faux pearl necklace I opshopped a couple of weeks before Chrissy.
I love the word "faux".
(In case you were interested!)
FAUX FAUX FAUX!
Frock-opshopped; it's a modern frock that I tried to jazz up a bit with some vintage trim
Sunglasses, gloves and shoes-opshopped
