You can always tell how old a woman is, they say. Just look carefully. And no it’s not by looking at her wrinkles, her grey hairs or her middle age spread! You just need to sneak a peek in her handbag, bathroom vanity or medicine cabinet!

So the secret is not to carry around too many items that may give away your age! I think it is a good thing to keep people guessing about your age as everyone ages differently depending on their genes, environment and lifestyles. When someone asks my age I just smile and say I’m in my fabulous fifties!
