Redefining how we women over 50 see ourselves- and how we are viewed by others. We are changing perceptions of women over 50. Let’s laugh together, cry together, inspire each other, but most of all be fabulous together. With one in seven women turning 50 this year likely to live to be 100, let’s live our next half century to the full.
As I approached my own 50th birthday I realised that women over 50 in the media were not represented in the way we saw ourselves. Where the positive images and role models? I could see just how outdated perceptions of women over 50 were. When I looked around my own friends and family, I saw a vibrant group of women, all living life to the full – not at all prepared to become invisible just because they had reached a milestone birthday.
So, I decided it was time to change perceptions, and create a positive, supportive base for women to meet and inspire. FabAfterFifty was born.
I’m not a journalist, and I have never been involved in anything like his before. I am just a woman over 50 who is passionate about all women over 50 having the opportunities to make the best of their lives.
FabAfterFifty is building a community where our site experts and guest contributors inspire, share and inform on topics from health and finance, fitness and diet, empty nesting, style, relaunching careers , anti-ageing and a range of other topics and issues faced by women over 50.
Our philosophy is simple, to create a community where likeminded women can come together to learn, share and inspire so we can navigate our way through the coming decades fabulously.

Let’s redefine the rules. Here’s to the next 50! The Best Half of our lives. Don’t be invisible, we can all be Fab after Fifty…..!
