Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blogsite, “Midlife and Beyond”.
My name is Alison and I’m a 58-year-old mum of two grown up boys. My husband is Pat. He is a musician and we live in the North East of England.
I started my blog a little over a year ago and my site is steadily building up with regular features which include fashion, style, beauty and lifestyle reviews. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but I do want to share with you my style and the fashion I love, as this may give you some style tips and inspiration. I do believe there are no rules, especially in midlife, and it is undoubtedly a time to celebrate life.
In the year ahead, I plan to include some restaurant reviews as well as writing about my travels. I hope you will find them interesting and informative with an honest and true reflection of me.
I have worked from the age of sixteen. My various roles have included working in Human Resources, Travel and IT within various departments at a local university – not to mention being a mother. I left the university two years ago but still help out on a temporary basis, which suits my lifestyle and frees up more time that I feel I have earned.
I have learned so much since beginning my blog. I get so much pleasure from it – but know I’m not as good at IT as I thought. My blog is growing slowly. I do love writing my posts. I also have a big interest in photography – so I either take my own photographs on my “not so reliable tripod” or set the shot up for my hubby to take, if he’s around. I have so much to learn!
My aim is for my witterings to be fun, down to earth and relatable – I will also touch on personal style and high street picks as well as other issues that definitely hit us all in midlife. I hope to give an honest and true reflection of my style, life, thoughts and my feelings. That is my wish!
Thank you very much for reading. Alison x
