Slower Fashion & Honest Beauty

About Me

About me • Fake Fabulous

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

Let me introduce myself...

I am a 46-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 snake!

I work part-time as a Biomedical Scientist in a hospital laboratory, and I spend the rest of the week hard at the housework... ahem, also known as blogging! 😝

Why call it '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).
I still want (and deserve) to look good.

Faking confidence is something I do on a regular basis, and expressing your personal style is the perfect way to do it.

Fake Fabulous is all about wearing what you already own.
Being a mindful shopper, a creative dresser and (most importantly!) having fun with fashion, whatever your age.
