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!

Fabulous dress but not so friendly for my shape so I stuck it to a poll. 71% say nah move on and I bloody love your honest opinion and let me tell you it has saved our marriage 'cos my poor husband isn't having to give his🤯. .
So thank you for always voting especially those that vote against 'cos an honest opinion is what we all need right?!? Plus.. if I kept everything I tried on for you guys then that would also be an issue for our marriage😂.

Ps this is @topshop try on saved in highlights.

There must be some beautiful metaphor for these gorgeous alliums that have pushed through our compost heap.. But that would be frankly vomit inducing wouldn't it😂. Not on my feed. So I won't clear the debris or make it anything deeper than me sitting on a step showing off the alliums / me!
.
Happy Bank Holiday Monday all. Lockdown has finally given us the time to do some gardening but it didn't give us the OOMPH or motivation unfortunately.. so you'll find me more likely in the hammock!
