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.
When I started writing my blog for fabulous midlife women it felt as if I was doing it alone. But I’ve discovered there are more of us out there…
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
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:
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:
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!

Beautiful Catherine is a British over 40 blogger style blogger who opposes the term ‘age appropriate’. She has a positive body image and encourages women to be fabulous at any age! Her great sense of style and sense of fun will have you returning to her midlife fashion blog again and again!

Samantha says she is just a normal woman making the most of what life, nature and three pregnancies has done to my body. Her style blog for women in her 40s is in seasonal categories but I particularly like her style tips and her beauty sections. She has an impressive little costume section too. A helpful and fun blog!

Nikki writes the thinking woman’s style blog. I love her sensitivity and warmth. I also enjoy that she shares her family in some posts too. You’ll feel like you’ve discovered a friend when you find Nikki’s blog. She has to be in my list of best blogs for women over 40.

I love the way Lorraine writes. Her posts are so easy to read because they speak to you. You’ll get tales of her life lessons and her humorous experiences that result from having married into a Swedish family. I like her because she’s wise, warm and humorous.
