About

Catherine

Bio: Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!

    Hello Gorgeous and thanks for the laughs! A few posts ago you referred to your thinning hair and the colour and products you used to make it look thicker. Please tell me which products you use?
    I tried going grey during a break from work it looked very washed out…grey is great for some but not for everyone….yet.

    I like the cut of your jib (to borrow an old mariners saying). You’ve got spunk & I like that!

    Please take what I’m about to say the right way…. you remind me of my Nan. When I was a young twenty-something (I’m a 40-something now), I spent two years in a largely Sicilian neighbourhood in Belgium where, once an older lady was, well… older… many of them dressed predominantly in earth tones…. DARK earth tones. One time my Nan came to visit… with her canary yellow or emerald green dress suits, foulards & heels… my friends thought she was the cat’s meow (they were right)! She had spunk… So when I say you remind me of her… I intend it as a compliment! πŸ™‚

      • Thanks so much! I really like yours as well. I write a lot of product reviews, and a lot of my followers are 20 somethings, which I love. I do find myself hammering on about the importance of using a daily SPF. A lot of these gals wear so much make up. I know it’s in style, but yikes! I try to impress upon them that if you don’t have nice skin, no amount of make up is going to help.

  29. Oh, you are just so darn darling! Flawed people are my favorite kind of people! As I am a deeply flawed person myself (almost so much so that I border on perfection! Ha.) I look forward to learning more about you and learning lots from you! I am so glad that I have stumbled upon your lovely blog, dear Catherine!

      Hi Shelbee, We are kindred spirits here. Flawed is wonderful because there is always room for improvement. I do not trust perfect–perfection is generally smoke and mirrors!!! XOXOXOO!!!
