Kaye Reeves - welcome to my world.
I am Kaye Reeves 53 years old, Mother, Grandmother, makeover stylist and now model and bikini class body builder.
Less than 8 years ago my life was very different to how things are today and its been a steep climb up! To begin with I was a struggling, far below average, chubby single parent, heavily burdened with money worries. Issues with depression and adrenal fatigue had hampered my abilities to cope with an ongoing working life that was an endless compromise between being a decent mother and bringing in enough money to live on….believe me I could make pasta go a long way, and having to choose between buying food, fuel for the car or electricity to keep the lights on was a daily occurance.
What followed was a series of events that smashed my world but were the catalyst for huge change and the start of the journey to where I am now .
I will not reveal the details here for my familys privacy , but the events lost me a parent, distroyed all moral expectations I had grown up with, put me through fear for my remaining family and led me to experiences that I never thought would touch my world. One day when the time is right I will tell you, for now all I can say is that it could make a good movie script!
Amongst this I had just spent every penny I'd saved on opening my own hair salon, Penhalagans. The day before opening my Mother died !
It was open or go broke! I had no choice but to pick myself up and face the world. My first weeks trading involved a lot of crying and a very small funeral service No words will ever describe what I went through in that time.
Each day was so hard , but I loved the sense of achievement it gave me and, like the perverbial pheonix, the new Kaye Reeves rose from the ashes of my old life . FITTER ,STRONGER IN CONTROL FOR THE FIRST TIME !
AND STRANGELY LOOKING MUCH YOUNGER !!
Working hard from this point, success followed . Lots of guts and more hard work created even more success.
Today I head a team of 10 very wonderful women of all ages that are caring and talented at taking care of people in many ways from hair and beauty, to cosmetic and complimentry therapies. I no longer have money worries, I am driving a brand new car, have 2 loving daughters and an amazing relationship with my grandchildren.
NOW I WANT TO HELP OTHER WOMEN IN THEIR 30s, 40s , 50s AND OVER LOOK AND FEEL 10 YEARS YOUNGER
This blog tracks my daily life and how I put my 30 years of health, beauty and fitness knowledge into action for real. You can share this with me and hopefully take a little inspiration with you. Remember if I can do it so can you. Best wishes Kaye xx
