About Me










Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blogsite, “Midlife and Beyond”.

My name is Alison and I will be 60 at the end of this year.  I’m mum to two grown up boys. My husband, Patrick is a musician and we live in the North East of England.

I started my blog around eighteen months ago.  My site is steadily building up with regular features which include fashion, beauty and lifestyle features, I don’t pretend to be an expert, but I do want to share with you my style and love of fashion, hopefully giving you some ideas and inspiration.  I do believe you should wear what makes you happy, especially in midlife, and it is undoubtedly a time to celebrate.

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.   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.  My blog is growing slowly.  I do love writing my posts.  My knowledge in photography is slowly growing – I do take most of 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 a lot to learn!

I hope to give an honest and true reflection of my life and style, and truthfully share with you my thoughts and my feelings. That is my wish!

Thank you very much for reading.  Alison x
