Fashion,beauty and jewellery for the non-invisible woman over 45


Is This Mutton's Gail Hanlon, an over 40s fashion and beauty blogger
I'm Gail Hanlon, a 50 something native Janner (Plymothian), living in London, UK. I'm a former journalist who turned poacher and went into PR and marketing.

I revived Is This Mutton? in December 2016 after it had lain dormant for a few years. I don't claim to be a fashion expert but I've learnt what suits me and I try to look good - and I won't add here "for my age." My mission with Is This Mutton? is to have fun with fashion, and engage with women aged 45+  who don't want to be invisible (although many brands prefer to use models in their 20s when advertising to us!).

When I'm not working (I'm a full-time digital marketing professional) or blogging you'll find me out  walking - we're doing the Wainwright  Coast to Coast challenge this year. I'm also keen on dining out, art, going to the theatre and spend far too much time Pinning on Pinterest.

  1. Being a librarian (and an American), I had fun researching what a "Janner" was and the origin of that phrase... plus the origin of the mutton phrase ("mutton dressed as lamb"). Language is so interesting! Do you also follow Catherine's style blog 'Not Dressed as Lamb'?
