About Bonnie

I’m an over 40 beauty blogger and here’s my story!

I was a girl geek long before it was cool to carry that moniker. In 1981 I saw The Empire Strikes back approximately 37 times in the movie theatre (hey, it was only $1.50) and I actually owned the Star Wars Movie LP (Geek Alert!)

In high school I was a theatre geek who had a thing for 80’s music and developed a love for everything pop culture. You seriously don’t want to play 80’s sitcom trivia with me as I’d beat your pants off.

My love of beauty products was started at an early age when my mom sent me to school with blush at the age of 9 to make me look more rosy (I was a blonde Wednesday Addams). As an 80’s girl Duran Duran, Boy George and Cyndi Lauper were my fashion icons. Today I’m addicted to Lush, Benefit, Tarte, Too Faced and Urban Decay.

I started this blog as a way to share beauty products with women like me who are over 40 and on the geeky side! When I’m not obsessing about lipstick and blush I’m the marketing manager for a pretty cool dog company on the web.

In my free time I can be found obsessing about Harry Potter…err, make that Severus Snape, pondering Dr. Who, assembling LEGO sets, listening to 80’s music, hanging out at the zoo with my family (we have a thing for cute furry creatures) and lurking in Lush.


My motto: Don’t dream it – be it. (I borrowed that from a kinda famous movie).

  2. Thanks for the follow Bonnie. I don’t see too many over 40 beauty bloggers. I’m 57 and have a lot of youngsters who follow my blog. I’m always telling them to make sure they use a daily sunscreen. I’m sure they are thinking “thanks Mom”. LOL!

    HI, I definitely identify with your girl geek persona! I was a star trek geek in my early years and still love action movies, the bigger the fight the better! And I would love to play 80s trivia with you- 80s classic rock is my goto pandora station for running! Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking it out, we unique over 40s need to stick together!
