I’m Karen, welcome to my blog!

I am a 52 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 big beautiful internet is such a fantastic platform for sharing ideas, experiences and thoughts and there is room for all of us!  This is my first experience of doing any kind of writing for public consumption and its absolutely terrifying….but I’ve decided to just take the plunge and see where it takes me.

What to blog about? Well, I am fascinated with fashion and refuse to confine myself to any particular style, I love to shop and hope that by now I have a pretty good idea of what suits me.  I have done a lot of travelling both in the UK and overseas, and like many women my age, I obsess about health and exercise.   I am a football fan,  (Manchester United FC) and enjoy a good horror film.  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.

As a trained (but now retired) Counsellor,  I am very interested in mental health, positivity and learning from my experiences.

I have 3 cats, 2 children, 2 stepchildren and a 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.
