Slower Fashion

About Me


Hello, my name is Samantha. 
Thank you so much for visiting Fake Fabulous!

Let me introduce myself...

I am a 45-year-old working mother, who lives in Scotland with her husband (the chief photographer and tea-maker) the youngest two of our four children, a very scruffy dog called Jake, two goldfish and Charlie... my youngest daughter's new snake!

I work part-time as a Biomedical Scientist and I spend the rest of the week hard at the housework... also know as blogging! 😝

Why 'Fake' Fabulous?

I'm often asked...


"Why on earth did you call you blog 'Fake' Fabulous? Fake is such a horrible word!"

Fake Fabulous is my way to describe trying to look as good as I can without having the perfect figure (or massive budget) that people assume we need to actually be fabulous... hence the 'fake'.

I am just a normal woman making the most of what genetics, life and three pregnancies have done to my body.
I have a teeny-tiny clothing budget and never visit a beauty salon (apart from the hairdressers).
Most of my money is spent on bills and our 4 children.

BUT...
I still want (and deserve) to look good and I refuse to buy cheap rubbish!

Faking confidence is something I do on a regular basis, and fashion is the perfect way to do it.

Fake Fabulous is all about having fun with fashion!

Why start blogging when you are in your 40's?

Blogging is supposed to be the playground of the very young, very rich and very beautiful BUT things are changing!
Blogging is becoming very popular and everyone can join in.
Writing a blog is not age, size, gender dependant.
Anyone can do it!

I decided to blog about style and beauty for three main reasons:-
