About Me

My name is Alison. I am mum to two grown-up boys. My husband, Pat, is a musician and we live in the North East of England.

I started my blog a few years ago. On my site, you will find features offering tips on style, beauty, and lifestyle for women of all ages. I don’t pretend to be an expert but I do want to share with you my knowledge, experiences, and love of fashion – hopefully giving you some ideas and inspiration. I believe you should wear what makes you feel happy, especially in “Midlife and Beyond”.  At 61 I feel this is undoubtedly the time to celebrate and certainly not a time to hide away and feel invisible. It’s the time to break the rules, feel alive and radiate energy and confidence – and,  love your body, mind, and soul. I know, from experience, this can be a task in itself!

I’m a northern girl and I have worked from the age of sixteen. My various roles have included working in Travel and Tourism, Human Resources, as well as IT within various departments at my local university. I officially retired from the university a few years ago but still work on a temporary basis, which suits my lifestyle and frees up more time that I feel I have earned. This, of course, has ended with the current situation we all find ourselves in but, hopefully, it’ll resume soon, as I really enjoy  the occasional work.

I get so much pleasure from my blog, especially writing my posts. I am able to reconnect with my passions. I take most of my own photographs on my “not so reliable tripod” or set the shot up for my hubby to take, if he is around. I still have so much to learn!

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

Thank you very much for reading.
