November is my birthday month and am always ecstatic (yes, you read correctly) for every year of life because life is a gift. And age is merely a number. To quote one of my favorite timeless beauties who also happens to have aged most gracefully, the one and only Sophia Loren, “There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” AMEN.
PS. This cool photo was taken in April 2011 while I was doing a makeup course at MUSE London – thank you for the beautiful creative makeup Anoushka Perry, makeup artist for Bobbi Brown.
