Here's what Liz had to say!
"Not Another Birthday!There are few certain things in life, and ageing is one of them. So many of us dread getting older, the thought of grey hair and wrinkles is quite often top of our ‘avoid’ list! We spend a fortune on hair dye and ‘miracle’ anti wrinkle creams; mankind has gone through some pretty crazy phases in the search for eternal youth. The media seems to be obsessed with the way celebrities look as they age and delights in printing unflattering photographs of time-ravaged celebs.
2012 is going to be a year full of special milestones for a lot of people. The queen celebrates 60 years on the throne with her Diamond Jubilee with celebrations taking place from the 2nd to the 5th June. Many celebrities are reaching a special birthday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law turn 40 this year, Tom Cruise will be celebrating his 50th and Paul McCartney, Harrison Ford and Barbara Streisand all hit the big 7-0 this year! Even celebrities haven’t found a way to stop growing older.
So perhaps instead of groaning and checking for grey hairs as another birthday approaches we should be grateful for the life we have lived so far, and look forward to the future that we are lucky and blessed enough to have. As one of my favourite quotes says “Birthdays are good for you – the more you have the longer you live”!
So whether you are feeling fabulous at 40, nifty at 50, sexy at 60 or super at 70 make sure you live each day to its fullest. Burn the nice candles, use the best crockery, and wear your favourite shoes. Don’t save it for a special occasion – today is special.
If you have a milestone birthday you are going to be celebrating this year and are struggling with inspiration of how to celebrate in style take a look at the fabulous party boxes ‘Life’s a Celebration’. Everything you need for your party in one box!
One of the most magical gifts for a special birthday is to create a ‘This is Your Life’ style Photo DVD. This is a perfect gift solution for even the hardest person to buy for. Photo Fairy Designs have created many Photo DVDs for customers and the feedback has always been fabulous. Collecting photographs from when a person was a small baby all the way up to the present day, showing first time homes, favourite places etc and put together as a slideshow set to their favourite music. The reaction when they see their photo DVD is always an emotional one filled with wonderful happy memories!
So look back at your life so far and what you have achieved, share stories and photographs with family and friends as you reminisce – who knows perhaps the best is yet to come!"

We both look forward to speaking to you all very soon. Don't forget that Life's a Celebration has everything you need to celebrate so why not take Liz's advice; embrace life and create lots of memories.
