Chicatanyage

I write a fashion and beauty blog for women over 40 with the aim of inspiring us mature women to continue to enjoy and have fun with our fashion choices.

I have spend most of my working life in some way connected to fashion. I started my career in Fashion PR and then trained as an Image Consultant when my children were young. I subsequently worked in the corporate world running seminars, doing private coaching and speaking at conferences.
I started my blog in 2009 as I wanted to share my years of experience working in the world of fashion. I truly believe we can continue to have confidence in the way we present ourselves. Our style may evolve with time and changing lifestyles, yet with a little knowledge and inspiration we can all continue to have fun with fashion. As women of a certain age we are a growing demographic let us prove that we can also be a chic one.
