Welcome

Welcome to my blog on all style, well-being and culture-related topics for grown-up women.

I haven’t yet decided on a name… All ideas welcome! Email me on claire.huntley@gmail.com

I’m Claire Huntley, a freelance illustrator, former graphic/web designer. Here, you’ll find are tips, reviews, news and comments on style and culture. I feel there is a real sense of a culture-shift in terms of women over 50 starting to demand to be seen and noticed and celebrated. Personally, as I enter my 50s this is becoming more and more interesting to see and read about, and I want to share and celebrate what I have found.

These are some of my favourite sources of inspiration, that enforce the idea of style, culture, and well-being for the more mature women!

Maye Musk
70-year-old Canadian/South-African model, who has never been busier in her modelling career than now. Maye has been a model for 50 years appearing on the covers of magazines including Time. In addition to modelling she is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with two MS degrees and gives presentations worldwide. She is with IMG Models WorldWide and has recently signed an exclusive contract with COVERGIRL.
I also discovered recently that her son happens to Elon Musk, the entrepreneur behind Tesla and SpaceX, and the inaugural launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy on Feb 2018, which became the most powerful operational rocket in the world.
