"What a joyful ride through territory that could be dismal and anything but joyful. Anna Murphy is wise and so very positive that reading her is like happiness itself."
- Geneen Roth, author of the # 1 New York Times bestseller Women Food and God
From the Fashion Director of the London Times comes a wise and entertaining guide to making the most of life as a grown-up woman.
We live in a society that seems to want us to be afraid of growing older. But imagine if getting older could be the greatest thing that ever happened to you.
At 50, Anna Murphy, Fashion Director at The Times, feels more visible than at any point in her life to date. Her new book, Destination Fabulous, is the toolkit you need to embrace your age and celebrate the wisdom and inner beauty that comes with it.
How do you lift and smooth your face naturally? Should you go grey, and, if so, how? How do you deal with the menopause? Anna combines her knowledge of conventional approaches with her openness to the alternative ways of thinking found in disciplines like yoga and Chinese medicine. For her natural is always best.
As for fashion, Anna knows better than anyone that this can be the ultimate route into surfacing the true you. She shares all her tricks for finding your way to a wardrobe that will transform not just the way you look but the way you feel. And she shares the highlights of her conversations over the years with super-stylish agers such as Iris Apfel and Miuccia Prada. How have they got it right?
Drawing on the wisdom of writers as diverse as Pema Chodron and Eckhart Tolle, Dorothy Rowe and Osho, Nora Ephron and Mary Oliver, she writes about saying goodbye to what doesn't serve you and welcoming what does; about forging relationships that work for you as well as others; and about finding your purpose, whether in your personal or professional life. Discover how the bumps on her road have helped her find her way to her true path. Her hope is that this book will help you to find yours, too.
Chapters include Embracing Your Face, Making Fashion Your Friend, True Romance, Your Body Beautiful, Finding Your Purpose and How to Live in Joy
