About Me

Having hit 43 - gulp and once a glorified housewife (I say glorified for no other reason that it sounded better than plain old housewife), I am now a full time (when the kids allow....) Blogger and Wardrobe Consultant & Personal Shopper, living in the home counties, 3 small kids, with an inner Elle MacPherson just battling to get out. I have a, perhaps, unhealthy obsession with fashion (it beats the ironing) and have just realised that at 40 it appears that one is supposed to wear gilets and raincoats with "fun" linings. I don't think so. This is my journey into my 40s hunting to find a style that doesn't scream mutton or frump.

  1. Hey Kat,

    I just had a look at your instagram page and wanted to reach out as i would love to collaborate in some way. Our page is https://www.instagram.com/hackneycoffeeco/

    Just a quick intro. We launched Hackney Coffee Co in October 2015 and since opening we have amassed nearly 25,000 genuine followers on social (9K Insta, 14k, Twitter).

    We have some big plans for this brand and will be releasing new products over the coming months including a new range of amazing cocktails and some very cool products.

    Our latest press is - http://startups.co.uk/hackney-coffee-company-jon-penn-james-penn-and-kevin-mills/

    I have setup a few successful companies in the past in the retail/creative sector selling product into the majority of UK fashion houses and major retailers like Paul Smith, Conran, Selfridges, River, Harrods, TopShop, Urban, M&S etc. For more on my profile see below


    I was thinking as a starter maybe pop in to taste the coffee and food in return for some small coverage in return. If you are not in London much then we could send you some coffee to try out? I would love to get you involved in the start of this roller coaster journey. If you do want to pop in just show the guys this email and they will look after you.

    We are based here in Hackney - ow.ly/Ww1Dl

    Let me know what you think.


  2. Kat I LOVE your blog! I am in my late thirties and was really struggling to find clothes that weren't either frumpy or total mutton. Thank you so much ... I have bought lots of clothes that have been on your blog. Just wondering if you might do a post on camisole tops please? X :)

  3. Mainly followed you on Instagram so far, but intend to get around to reading (ALL) your blogs. Keep up the good work, I have to say that all your stuff is just as relevant to me, even tho' my bum is well past 40, it's going to be 60 this year. *sob *sob

  4. Hi Kat
    I am in my early 30s and your blog has really helped me explore a more grown up style that is still on trend-thank you! I love midi skirts but struggle with what to what top to wear with them -would like a slight crop rather than looking like I've gone out in my bra! And a jumper that isn't too bulky to tuck in...would be eternally grateful if you could do a blog on this

  5. Hi Kat
    I love your posts and I've got lots of compliments on the clothes I have bought due to your excellent advice. My husband was wondering if you know of an equivalent blogger for men? He wants to be stylish too 😂 Thank you for any advice you can give us, Jackie x
