My mission is to give women the skills, permission and power to enjoy ageing. I want them to cherish every wrinkle, embrace their silver sparkles, practise midlife self-care with a plant based diet and exercise, but most of all appreciate how blessed they are to be growing old.

I created this website and  @fiftysister on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok to; promote positive and healthy ageing, share my silver hair journey to inspire other women to set their sparkles free, promote the use of cruelty free beauty products, encourage everyone to explore a vegan lifestyle and help other women find their tribe of like-minded women.

I share; my adventures of starting a new life in Portugal, the challenges of building my dream minimalist home, plant based recipes, navigating life as an empty-nester, hiking and wild swimming with Gin & Bird my Hungarian Vizslas, my 50+ active lifestyle and all my efforts and attempts at keeping fit and staying healthy in midlife and beyond.

I watched YouTube tutorials to learn how to; take photos using my iPhone, shoot better quality video using motion stabilisers and other gadgets, how to edit videos – add music titles and graphics etc, register a domain name, build a website, and finally (phew!) most importantly how to earn money from my website using affiliate links and partnering with brands to share discount codes. It’s taken me a long time to connect everything together, but now I have Instagram, YouTube and my website working together nicely. It’s always going to be work in progress.
