Me and My Blog


I’m Karen, welcome to my blog!

I am a 54 year old woman who believes that women who have passed a certain landmark birthday should  embrace all that life throws at us and make the absolute best of who we are and what we have.

This blog is about positivity and living life to its fullest, but I am interested in lots of challenging social issues including the environment and sustainability. I promote small businesses who are advocating ethical and eco friendly manufacture, distribution and packaging and I am motivated by any climate change issues.

As a trained counsellor, I am a mental health advocate and have experience with life coaching. I write about anxiety, worry, and coping with low mood.

I have done a lot of travelling both in the UK and overseas, and I enjoy exercising for health. I love all animals, (especially cats) and am a longtime Manchester United FC supporter.  Medieval and Tudor history has been a lifelong passion of mine …and I am just one small lottery  win away from starting my own animal welfare sanctuary ūüėĀ

I have 3 cats, 2 children, 2 stepchildren and my husband (Andy) and I live on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire in the UK.

If you have any thoughts that you would like to share with me, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please join me by subscribing to this blog, or following me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
