My best blogs for women over 40

I’ve put together a list of the best blogs for women over 40 written by fabulous women who inspire through their sense of style and sense of humour. I’ve picked a selection of their blog posts that show their delicious food, beauty tips, craft ideas, travel inspiration, style tips and more. These midlife blogs encourage you to make the most out of your 40’s and get that fabulous midlife lifestyle.

I’ve separated them into a few groups: UK lifestyle blogs for mature women; Stylish over 40 fashion bloggers and Inspirational Midlife blogs.

Although I must say, many of these blogs fall into several categories. Most of these are clearly blogs for women in their 40’s and beyond, but not all of them. A couple are simply women writing for mature women.

UK lifestyle blogs for mature women – food, travel, beauty and more

More Than Turquoise

Jamie is in her 50’s (tho’ you wouldn’t believe it!) and a self confessed fashion addict. Her big personality shines through her blog posts which range from beauty, travel and lifestyle although fashion always plays a major part. Jamie is from south west America and so cowboy boots and a crisp white shirt is among her favourite styles but she also loves classics and bagging a bargain!

Here are some of my favourite lifestyle, beauty and fashion posts:

The Defining Moment

On-The-Go Glow

Heavy On The Metal

 

Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diaries

Elizabeth brilliantly calls herself a daydream adventurer and possibly Britains most northern food blogger. She is primarily a food blogger but shares her adventures and crafts too. She had me at her profile picture which is the back of her wildly windblown tangled hair. Perfect for a lass living in Shetland. I love that you get a peek into her life in every post.

Here are some of my favourite food, craft and travel posts:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Halloween Cake

I’ve followed Karen’s blog for years and watched her foodie blog grow. She shares her time between north Yorkshire and south west France where she has her cookery school, so her Instagram account are often full of scenic photos as well as her delicious looking traditional cooking. Karen also gets to travel and gives detailed accounts and beautiful photography. Of course she makes my best blogs for women over 40 list!

Apple, Lemon And Elderflower Drizzle Cake

A helpful and fun blog!

  1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m absolutely chuffed to bits to be included with the “stylish” bloggers, both ladies I adore. Also I’m really pleased you included the link to my HRT post, it’s so important to me to get women talking about Menopause & their symptoms. xxx
