About Me, My Work and My Blog

loving yourself in red lippie

Hello, I’m Lisa, I’m 56 and a mum to three wonderful kidults and a ball-obsessed puppy Golden Retriever, Cosmo. Oh, and I’m married to Mr Glowology AKA #StressedHusband, who says he’s last (but I say, not least) in the family pecking order. I’m a former beauty editor for glossy magazines and during my 30+ year career I’ve written for some of the UK’s top lifestyle publications including Cosmopolitan, Woman’s Own, The Sunday Times Style Magazine, The Financial Times How to Spend it, Prima, Woman, Slimming, Glowday online and I recently wrote and edited a 98-page showguide for This Morning TV Live.

Public Relations and Content Creation

Although I still write features, I working on press campaigns for brands and charities, securing them coverage with top media titles. I also work with beauty and wellbeing brands to create relatable and engaging content for their marketing materials, blogs and social media platforms. Really, it’s all about using the right words and I believe my journalistic experience and friendly, appealing writing style enables me to successfully portray the correct tone of voice for my clients.


Glowology Content Creation

My passion for pro-ageing and interest in all things that help make women feel their happiest and look their best as they age, led to me creating Glowology, an award nominated wellbeing blog for women in midlife. On my blog and social media channels – Instagram and Twitter –  I write and review products and services of interest to women of 50+ who are on the same journey as me and looking for inspiration, positivity and fun during the trials and triumphs of everyday life.

I often talk about my menopause journey on Instagram and am lucky to have cultivated a brilliantly loyal and gorgeous audience of women there who are also happy to discuss the subjects that were once taboo for our age-group.

For midlife women, times are definitely changing in our favour and it’s not all about ‘putting up’ with prematurely ageing skin – or even symptoms of menopause – it’s about embracing ageing and finding out what we can do to make it a magnificent second half! We have choices. Hot flushes? Let’s talk about the menopause and how to ride the wave – I love that my followers are so engaged and are keen to talk about the trials and tribulations of midlife and I’m happy to share my experiences with them and offer my support.
