About Me

me with coffee

I’m a former Cosmo and Woman’s Own beauty editor and have written for many print and online titles such as Financial Times How to Spend it, Healthy, Essentials and Best. And now, I am flying the flag for fab 40+ with my glow-getting wellbeing & beauty blog!

I’ve had my share over the years of finger-dipping beautiful makeup and slathering on creams costing a small fortune and it’s been marvellous.  I love keeping up with the latest developments in anti-ageing skincare and treatments and finding out about trends in fitness and nutrition and hope to bring this information to my lovely readers – you!

But, as a working mum with three ‘children’ 21, 19 and 15 with a stressed husband and a slobbery, muddy but oh-so-loveable black Labrador, I’m more than aware that life isn’t all glamorous get togethers and bottomless bank balances, so I want this blog to keep it real and bring you ideas, tips and products which are accessible to us – real women. That’s not to say the odd sparkly, blow-the-budget makeup range won’t ever be featured – we all love to dream, right?

So, welcome to my blog, and if you’re wondering, ‘What is Glowology?’ Well, it may not be a real science like the other ologies out there, but I think it sums up well the art of what I’m trying to achieve in my busy life – which is to feel and look as good, healthy and happy as I possibly can. This can sometimes fail – often miserably – but part of Glowology is knowing that nobody’s perfect and that whatever our age, size or circumstances, we can certainly have fun trying to be the best we can be!
