Whenever her roots begin to show,

she heads to the salon for a second skin.

‘How long will this veneer hold?’

she asks her sparkling reflection,

taking care not to scratch

the surface.

    It’s true – women are expected to stay permanently young – I love the cometary…

      Thank you! The expectations women labour under are unrealistic – it’s time to not buckle to the pressure, but to feed and beautify our insides as well as our outsides!!
