Bringing Bohemian Glamour from Decadent Decades Past!

My Belle Epoque

 2016  arrived at my door, I will admit, with much dread

A milestone year for me!

NOT (I may add) a year I was particularly looking forward to! I had kept my reluctance quite quiet, not really wanting to draw any attention, and certainly not interested in celebrating an anniversary of JOY!

Then two and a half weeks into the year the inevitable, unstoppable, inescapable, unpreventable happened…..


YES! IT  HAD ARRIVED (Hands over ears) I had reached 60!!!!!!!

The day came and went without too much fuss. Some very close friends and family, insistent that I mark the day at least with a birthday toast, arrived at my shop bearing gifts & cards & a copious amount of champagne which anesthetized the situation greatly!

“2016, was not a year that I was particularly looking forward to!”



So today – JUNE 19th 2016 – I declare – after habituating to this new phase of life for 6 months, I have found a new ME!

I am embracing the fact of being a  ‘sexagenarian’ and the ‘Don’t give a f***’ attitude that comes with the title!

Honestly! It is an empowering experience! I really don’t care what people think about me, (MY opinion of ME is what matters!)

I have a wealth of life experience! (Which has taught me much)

I am blessed with good health, although I could do with shedding some lbs  (which is MY concern and NO concern for others!)

I am a Mother of a Son & Daughter whom I am fiercely proud of!

I have a magnificent family (who I love – each & every one of them dearly) and a wealth of loyal & true, longstanding, as well as new friends, of all ages!

Not to mention my babé –  Théo!



As you know I am fortunate to have created over the last couple of years my own business Mooshy La La, you will also know this is my passion, I work my socks off, I love what I do, I have so much enthusiasm and constantly my head is buzzing with new ideas, (of which there aren’t enough hours in the day to fulfill them.)  I will probably never be a ‘Millionaire’ (in monetary terms that is) 

SO…..What would I say to reaching 60 now?

“Bring on the next decade! I’m rearing to go!!!!”

At 70 she is living proof that age is just a number!!!!

Biggest of thanks 🙏🏻 and gratitude 🙏🏻 to all who constantly support my little shop 💋💋💋 BUT ….PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! KEEP SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS (ESPECIALLY WE ‘BRICK-&-MORTAR’ SMALL INDEPENDENTS) You are without doubt aware of the financial struggle we small ‘SHOPS’ are facing and it’s a no-brainer that unless you support us WE WILL BE GONE!!!!! This is what we DO! we do not have jobs through the week and supplement our income at weekends, at markets and fairs, or sell through e-commerce from our homes (I am in no way knocking the fairs & eBay sellers’ I am just making people aware who take us little shops for granted, and have no sense of the overheads we pay!)……. we pay rents and rates and utilities and give you an ACTUAL shopping experience! We chat, we are humans, we have faces, we have a listening ear! (We also do a hell of a lot of one-to-one counseling and therapy sessions within the community, 😇 a community with a rising mental health problem – ask anyone who has a little shop!!!!!!!) #support #supportsmallbusiness #supportsmallindependentbusinesses #womeninbusiness
She’s watching you!#Biba #bibaposter #bibakensingtonhighstreet #barbarahulanicki #1970s #mouche
