My darlings….I shall not bore you with a long biography of Baroness Thatcher’s life, as I am pretty certain that you can find that plastered across many a places right now. But I will be admittedly biased, as some of you darlings might remember that she is indeed a hero of mine. Now don't get me wrong, I am not political and nowhere as ambitious as the great lady herself...truth be told I am also not the strongest of persons, preferring gentleness wherever possible and crying quite easily when saddened ...but perhaps this is why I admire her so. One only needs to reflect on how our Prime Ministers have entered their term of office with the vibrancy of youth, but end up leaving 10 Downing Street looking 10 years older to understand what a tough seat it actually is. The question is...how did the great Lady Thatcher always keep her hair so coiffure perfect and manage to look pristine-ly ladylike in all circumstances? There must have been more than the widely seen hairspray, handbag and skirt suits? Let us not forget that she was indeed human and had troubles of her own to solve too...for as long as humans are in existence there will be some form of difficulty or problem to overcome....so goes the norm of life. Plus if you happen to be female and have a deep love for hats, could you imagine what it must be like to give up most of your hat collection? Perhaps what I am trying to say is....it takes inner character and strength to achieve what she did....10 actual years of Downing Street is no easy feat regardless of gender. So let us look back at what was beautiful about this amazing lady instead....plus some of her lovely handbags and hats of course!

"Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope."
– Lady Thatcher's e
My favourite Lady Thatcher quote always manages to make me smile, sit a little more upright and somehow hold my head with feigned confidence; "Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't." Regardless of public criticism, she was an inspiration and role model for many females across the globe. It is sad to think how there is yet to be a lady like Baroness Thatcher and our future generations may not come to learn about her life or achievements. Here's to remembering a pioneer and a remarkable lady....may she rest in peace and always be remembered for the goodness she instilled. Lastly, I hope I have not bored you darlings too much with my thoughts on Lady Thatcher....as my 1920s party at the Candlelight Club looms closer and the new ballet term is set to begin tomorrow, I look forward to a busy month ahead! Have a fabulous week my lovely darlings!
