Looking back over the last couple of years, I can actually say I’m quite proud of myself…
Being included in Katherines Corner Between The Lines Series this week means a lot. Katherine has set up a series of post’s each week to feature us female bloggers over 50. This week it’s my turn and I thought if your a new reader, I would tell how this blogging malarkey came about.
These are the first photo’s taken for the blog, taken on a well out of date mobile phone. I thought it was going to be so easy !
After reading a magazine article about a mature lady who had started a fashion blog, it got me thinking. I could do that !
I had never even sent an email before ! I just thought I had some spare time on my hands, and it would be good to learn. After all, I have always loved fashion, and being a hairdresser/ beauty therapist I could share my thoughts and share some tips.
It’s time for us over fifty ladies stand out! Mature fashion is starting to make it’s mark, realising that we don’t want to be dowdy at this age and brands seem to be thinking of us more. Take a look at the fashion show I attended last year, all the models were fifty or above Over Fifty Fashion Show
Little did I know how hard blogging was going to be, and how time consuming it actually is. But this is my baby, one that I feel I have shed sweat and tears over and I wouldn’t change a thing. I have worked hard, and rewards have been good. I have made some great friends, worked alongside brands, got my first blogger award and been to and seen some amazing things that I wouldn’t have if not for writing this blog.
So after learning much ( I know there is still so much more to learn ! ) and being given a couple of decent cameras, my photography got a little better and I have just invested in a new blog template. I don’t get as stressed as I used to putting post’s together…
I was also lucky enough to be featured in Marie Claire, Discussing fashion over fifty…
I like to write mainly about bargain finds, I don’t spend huge amounts of money on clothing, I get far more joy out of finding that gem of a bargain and writing about it. Also I like to write about beauty, and places that I visit in London.
I think Katherine’s Idea of putting all of us ladies in our 50’s under one roof to explore is such a fabulous Idea..
So please pop over and read the answers to the questions Katherine has asked me. Also I love hearing from you too.
