Over 40 style | Fitness | Food | Family..Lifestyle Blog ...


Hello and welcome to my all about me page..

I'm a 42 year old married mum of 4 fab kids who Love's to run and if I work hard enough maybe one day I will be good at it!?! My 4 children...

Yeah so excited to have been featured in April 2013 edition of Red Magazine

I love fashion, shoes and clothes. Then again who doesn't?

As a full time mum and spending lots of hours looking after kids,cooking,cleaning running and now blogging I don't get much time for a lot of anything else...

I blog about my life,my family,running,all other exercise,special events,holidays,food,cakes and healthy treats,races.

Fashion,shoes,making thing from old clothes to make something new,make up.fun,vintage...

Ups,downs,my new intrest in photography,baking and anything else that happens along the way :)

Family-Spending time with my family,my kids grow up so quickly.

Exercise-I love to run,I started running about 7 years ago and never I've never looked back since.I joined a gym over a year ago and love most of the classes my favourite ones are zumba,spinning,swimming,and Pilate's.....

Shoes-I love to buy shoes.... wear shoes.....hide shoes.....

Photography-My new hobby,I'm still learning how to take a good photo and lovin it....

Cakes-I've always had a sweet tooth and started running so I could still eat cake, maybe if I could give them up my running would be better......just starting to bake them for myself never really had time before.... Also get to share some amazing food recipes from different companies...

Fashion-Loves to follow fashion a little obsessed with polka dot! especially red with white polka dots.....also love vintage style clothes.

Nail art- lovin all the nail art and learning how to do good nails but it hard when your washing pots a lot to have long nails

Bargains- love to find a bargain one thing I hate is paying full price for something that goes half price the week after and with 4 kids theirs always something else to spend the money I've saved on.



  1. Really enjoyed reading about your life and projects. Very nice photos, and especially like the shot of you running down a hill with the photo of you in the background.

  2. Hello Justine! I came across your blog and thought it would be perfect for a promotion we are running in connection with Halloween. We are giving away a selection of cosmetic contact lenses to bloggers so that you can have a play around with them, perhaps try them with different outfits and review them on your blog.

    The lenses are simple non-prescription coloured contacts and opaque, for a bit of fun and to get the word out there how they go with different outfits.

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in, your preference (if any), address details and I will get the selection sent out to you. Kind regards, Kristina

    1. Thank you for your kind offer,sorry I have only just found this comment ...

  3. I admire how lovely you dress, bake - especially with four children. I aspire to one day get my life back once my children are older, tell me it happens?
