How Mid Life Fabulous Came To Be
Tina and Simone make a great team. They are fun, loud, social but very down to earth Aussie gals. They both just love life and try to make the best out of every situation.
With a lot in common, both are intelligent with a sense of humour and a passion for fashion,
beauty, food, travel and all things fabulous.
Working together as models for the past 7 years at the Home Shopping Network, showing everything from makeup, skincare, haircare, fashion, shapewear, shoes and fitness equipment, the girls became came solid friends.
Both in their 50’s and popular with their viewers the girls found they were being asked a lot of questions by their viewers regarding styling, fashion and beauty tips as well as how and where they found out about fun things to do and places to go.
They thought why not share this information not only with our customers but other mid lifers who were looking for advice as well.
The girls are the perfect role model to reach out to ‘mid-lifers’ not only because of their age but their long careers in the modelling industry where they have picked up tips and tricks from some of the best in the business and they would love to share it with you.
In 2018, an exciting opportunity arose when the girls applied and came very close to being selected as presenters for the popular Channel 9 television show Travel Guides. An incredible opportunity was before them where they could see all their dreams come true. They would be role models for women in their 50’s showing them all the great things you can still do when you are in your mid-life and help them to enjoy life to the fullest through travel, fashion and fun. Unfortunately, the girls didn’t make it on the show but realising they still had something to offer other women their age, they created Mid Life Fabulous in order to share their knowledge and love of life with you.
Tina and Simone believe that adding up the years IS fabulous so why not celebrate mid-life by embracing it and living it to the fullest.
They hope you enjoy their website.
