I’m old. Thankfully I still look amazing….

Ok so here is my claim to fame, I’m 43 years old and have NO grey hair.   I’ve been yelling that from the roof tops since a certain BFF started going grey in her 20’s.  I mean I LOVE the fact that I can say “oh i don’t colour my hair it’s completely natural” …
