Let's Hear It For 83 Year Old Mary Berry, the Newest Fashion and Beauty Icon!
Are any of you fans of The Great British Baking Show?
Though I neither cook nor bake well, I have to admit my husband and I are both hooked on this show--as is our 25 year old youngest daughter! She's described it as "comforting" and I think that really says it. There's no shouting, the diverse group of contestants is fascinating and the setting and music are lovely and upbeat.
And I'm also a huge fan of one of the judges on the first six seasons: 83 year old Mary Berry. Not only is she knowledgeable, delightful and charming, but I was delighted to learn that she's become a beauty and fashion icon! Check out this lovely article about her in the British publication The Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6172243/Mary-Berrys-fashion-secrets-Bake-icon-reveals-style-tips.html
And yes, I must confess, I'm obsessed with the gorgeous pink lipstick she wears which I've come to find out is from Max Factor. We certainly all remember Max Factor makeup from our childhood (after all, who could forget that pancake makeup!), but who knew it was still around? And could there be a more perfect name for her favorite lipstick color? It's called "English Rose"!
