But when her mum died of a heart attack at the age of 63, she decided to take stock of her health and trained as a nutritionist. She then wrote three books, including Alternative Ageing, continues to broadcast as a health & fashion expert, and moved from London to Brighton, where she has enjoyed life to the max ever since! She started her Alternative Ageing Blog in 2014 to share all the things she loves and knows about: health & nutrition, style & travel. Top tips on looking good and feeling great, whatever your age!

And also urging everyone to stop ageism in its tracks especially when we can be as guilty of it as the outside world!
