You Say It's Your Birthday???'s my birthday, too, ya!

Here we are on April 7th. Hard to believe this 4-month journey is over. Thank you for your comments and support along the way. It has been a good time and I think it was a huge success! I couldn't have done it without this blog, my followers, Inner Strength Fitness Centre and Jodi Sauve's specialized training programs, Alison and Suzanne of Sweet Diva and everyone's support!

It was worth it all and today, I am 40 years old and feeling healthy, fit and fabulous.
Now onto my next goal................

Portrait of My Almost 40-Year Old Self......Sort Of

This is the second last photo from the Pin Up Girl Shoot that I will be sharing. I like it because it reminds me of the old Hollywood film stars when they had those dreamy looking head shots. It captures the essence of being forty although if you saw me at the Town Hall yesterday getting some items faxed you probably wouldn't have recognized me!

Usually you will find me in jeans, a squall jacket and my bad-ass rubber boots (they have skulls and cross bones on them). My hair will be tied back in a pony tail and I wear minimal make-up. You might also notice that I sport two frown lines between my eye brows and some fine crow's feet which I have earned in my almost 40 years of living. But make-up, good lighting and a talented photographer can erase these small "distractions" from a woman's features and highlight the best of her looks. Here is photo #4:

I'm Bringing Sexy Back..........

Well, I should say....Sweet Diva is bringing sexy back for any woman who wants to experience glamour......... old Hollywood style. There is just something so wrong and yet so sensual about corsets, stockings, heels, intricate hairdo's, red lips and false eyelashes.......gotta have those false eyelashes.
And here is photo #3 for you all!

Another Pin Up Girl Shot!

As I wrap up Julie's 40's Project, I hope all of you have had fun! I encourage my female followers to mark a special birthday or event with a professional photo shoot like this. It was so much fun and such a positive experience! Here's photo #2 of the five I will be sharing between now and Thursday.
