I've never really worn make up, styled my hair or bothered with how I look. That was fine when I was young and fresh. Now I'm 34 (nearly 35) and I want to look good. I have just tried to curl my hair (and failed) and sorted out my make up, throwing out stuff that doesn't suit me.

Have also been reading the whole thread and lurking and would love to join in. Have started a clear out of my wardrobe and am going to try everything on and it's not going back if it's tatty or doesnt fit. Am low carbing & feeling much better for it so want to look better too.
Looking for some jumper dresses, could anyone point me in the right direction please? Have tried some from wallis but they just looked shapeless on me.

Didn't manage to get back on here last night but I had a lovely long bath and then slathered myself in body lotion.

Skin felt so lovely and soft this morning!

Today's outfit is a long sleeved purple dress from warehouse (£10 down from £38 in the sale!) with a black belt - never wear belts but it came with the dress and actually looks quite nice smile
Black opaques
My kurt Geiger shoes but going out later so will swap for my black knee highs
Black cardigan

I want to get out of wearing a cardigan every day but not sure what the alternative would be?
