Hi, my name is Helen Brookes and I am
@40plusnotgivingupyet

I am a SHOPPING ADDICT who craves the opportunity to help women get back their mojo and feel the very best they can.

I love sharing my high street finds (and fails!) on my Insta feed and you can tune into my honest try-on sessions anytime, anywhere via my daily Instagram Stories @40plusnotgivingupyet.

I’ll answer all your burning fashion questions such as;

  • Which SIZE should I buy?
  • What does the material FEEL like?
  • Will it show my BULGY bits?
  • What kind of UNDERWEAR will I need?
  • How can I DRESS IT UP or down?
  • And of course….does it have POCKETS?!

We’ve all ordered online and been bitterly disappointed when the garment arrives, usually in the wrong size or fabric. My aim is to save your precious time and pain. I’ll give you the real deal before you hit the button!

I’m a hungry bargain hunter and definitely not into designer clobber (I don’t have the cash and even if we did, I think a trip to Mauritius would be more my bag!).

I love nothing more than a charity shop find too. There are such hidden gems to be found! And occasionally I shout out about the beauty products and fake tan secrets that I can’t live without!

I am also a mum with a very tolerant husband!

Tummy control slip that I swear by an essential and maxi dress for today's #smallmumtallmum with my mate @stealmystyle40. Normally I wear jeans to allow for try ons when I go out with this one but we are also going for dinner and so I want to give this @asos dress an outing! Spotted on my pal @lynsey_queenofclean I bought it within 3 mins of seeing her🤣 love it! .
Abi and I have been invited to @canarywharflondon for a spot of shopping AND a meal (gifted so so so lucky!) and so we have carved out time to celebrate our birthdays early and to say I'm excited is an understatement... this might be my first Christmas dinner though the first of many. As I said at the beginning tummy control is where it's at not portion control!

Didn't know what to wear today. Fallback formula: Blazer + Skinnies = Job done
.
Hair flicked over too for the black eye. I'm actually growing quite fond of it though as it's going a fetching shade of purple like the smokey eyes I've never been able to master🤣.
