We all need mentors.
Especially sexy ones.
By my definition, a Sexy Mentor is someone who is ten to fifteen years older than you and is still undeniably, incredibly hot. Without even knowing it, they remind you to reframe your perception of sexiness beyond the media’s oh-so-limiting portrayal of it as young, thin and unlined.
I have Joan.
I loved her before I even met her in person.
I called her on a recommendation from a friend who said she did skin care and carried great face cream. I explained that I was leaving for a two-month adventure to New Zealand and wanted something really good.
“It’s hard for me to recommend products without analyzing your skin,” she said.
“Irish. Freckled. Sensitive. Lots of fun in the sun.”
She laughed. “Okay. North or South Island?”
My kind of esthetician.
Meeting her in person only confirmed it. She’s passionate about her profession and reminds me of those effortlessly beautiful women I saw all over France. Vitality oozes from her every pore and transfers like osmosis through her hands into my face.
She knows how to saunter that line between fashionable and trendy and lucky for me, we are the same size so she gives me her castaway classy clothes.
Every time I see her, she reminds me that that sexy knows no age limits.
Who are your sexy mentors?
