The Sass – Where do you Find Yours?

the-sass-blogAs you may know, I’m all for hot looking mamas over 40 strutting their stuff and being strong, powerful women in the workplace and at home. I totally love glamour and beauty but, as I age, I realise it’s not all about the looks – it’s more about The Sass.

What is The Sass?

The Sass…it’s knowing you wake up with crumply eyelids and a line from your pillow on your cheek that makes you look like you’ve had a run in with a gangland criminal. But you apply your kick ass mascara and glossy lips anyway – you can see through the crinkles to the beauty beyond.

The Sass…it’s pulling on your skinny jeans and failing to contain that bulge of flappy, apron-like skin that refuses to be shoved down beneath the waistline and hidden from view. But you stride out of the house and go about your day with a laugh and a ‘who gives a f***’ flick of the hair anyway.

The Sass…it’s about rocking that leopard print shirt or your pleather leggings with a flourish, despite that little voice in your head saying ‘isn’t it about time you packed away those items of clothing with your ra-ra skirt and Disney t-shirts?’ Balls. No!

The Sass…it’s about looking at your young daughters and their friends with their smooth skin, flat tummies and clothes-friendly bodies and telling them “Don’t ever worry about growing older and losing your looks because looks aren’t everything. But whatever you do, just don’t lose your SASS!”

The Sass comes in all shapes and sizes and knows no age limits and my message to you is that, even if some days you feel that your sass has deserted you – it hasn’t. If you look hard enough, you might just see it glinting back at you. Perhaps it’s tucked underneath those red cowboy boots that you’ve given up wearing for fear of looking like mutton – or maybe it’s hidden in your makeup bag among the safe beige and brown eyeshadows?

And if you still can’t find it, I’ll let you into a secret. Sass never fails to turn up around a table where you sit with a bottle of bubbly and some fabulous friends!

Here’s to Your Sass…wherever you may find it – don’t let it go!

    I ABSOLUTELY love this post! And I love having that little bit of sass too – my 40th birthday is looming and I’m excited about it, so I’m hoping to become even sassier soon 😉

  4. The one reply I have for this is ‘hell yeah!’. I’m not a mum, but I’m almost 49 and loved this post, so true and laughed at the ra-ra skirts. Here’s to being sassy!

  7. Great post! Here’s to all of us on wordpress who are in their 30s, 40s and even 50s. These are the best years in person’s life! As we age we just get better. We become more intelligent, more confident and more sure of ourselves. That’s where the sass comes from. Here’s to the sass of the best generations!

    • Thanks for your kind comment! Totally agree that sass comes with age, confidence and feeling more sure of ourselves! Here’s to a sassy future for all women 🙂 xx
