Hi my name is Joanna and I am a 43 year old mum of two. My husband (Jonathan) and I have been together for almost 18 years.
I live in Northumberland just outside of Newcastle with my husband, two children and two dogs (Hunter and Coco Chanel)
We have travelled a lot in the past 7 years and during that time i have lived in Paris and Switzerland which was such a great experience for us all especially my son who is fluent in French, however I definitely drink more wine and champagne now and cant have a breakfast without a croissant on the side!
The reason for my blog is simple. I want to show other women like myself that you can be glamorous and comfortable at the same time. Since turning 40 I have lost all inhibitions and just wear what I love and feel comfortable in. I will never wear something just because its fashionable it has to feel right and suit my shape and style. I do like to try out different fashions and stepping out of my comfort zone always makes me feel more confident, but you also have to learn what suits your shape. I don’t like showing the tops of my arms so I always look for clothing with short or long sleeves. Mixing high street and high end fashion is great fun, in fact one of my favourite looks on Instagram was a Primark pink coat paired with my classic Chanel handbag!
I get a real pleasure from putting outfits together and knowing that I’ve inspired someone to create my look.

Keep dreaming, shine like a star, never give up. You are your own beautiful.
