Day 25 - Home Beautiful Feature


I am now officially 40! Celebrated my birthday yesterday. And what a fabulous bonus. My store "Just Plain Gorgeous" is featured in the latest edition of Home Beautiful magazine. I am ever so pleased. Leave for Hamilton tomorrow. This is the last week of "The Month of Simone". Better make it a good one!

  33. Happy Birthday and welcome to being 40! What did you get for your birthday?

    I turned 40 in July and while it seemed a big deal at the time (like not in a good way) it occurred to me yesterday that I hadn't actually thought about the fact that I really was 40 since my birthday. It really is only a number, and doesn't and never will define who we are!

    Must go visit a newsagent today I think!

    xx Karen

    ps. ages ago I asked about a yellow 50's style dress you wore and you kindly told me where it was from, I looked it up at the time but I have now forgotten. Now I am living in Aussie I would very much like to look it up again...would you mind telling me again where it was from? thanks :)
