I share fashion tips for mature women. I strongly believe in sustainable fashion and I never ever, never never buy new clothes. Years ago I spent thousands of dollars per month on new designer clothes thinking they would make me happy - turns out I just needed a divorce! My clothing is all secondhand and my favorite places to shop are my local Goodwill and ThredUP. Go thrifting and re-love older fashions to create your own, unique look. Can you imagine scoring a Prada jacket for $12.99? It took me a week to recover.
HEALTH & FITNESS POSTS:
Due to an autoimmune disease (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis) and a horrific shoulder and arm break resulting in 5 fractures and surgery, I am an accidental fitness nut. Menopause is the icing on the “where-the-hell-did-my-waist-go” cake and I spend a lot of time taking care of my health whether it’s eating healthy or curling 30lb dumbbells at the gym. I am seeing my body transform into a fit, strong version of me I haven’t seen in 30 yrs. I’d like to inspire you to find the strength in your body, too.
MIDDLE AGE RANT POSTS:
I despise the “middle-aged woman” stereotype and I fight it with every fiber of my being. This is where I share my latest trials, tribulations and irritations about being perceived as less of a woman because of my age. I refuse to fade into the background, to be overlooked as a functioning member of our society and I refuse to do any of it quietly. Hang on to your Spanx, I have a PhD in sarcasm.
