So happy to be here

So happy to be here

I have been fascinated with fashion and style from a very young age. Therefore it is no wonder that one of my idols in life is the legendary Gabrielle Bonheur, better know as Coco Chanel.

The 50plus Girl blog will feature style and fashion along with my passion for travel and food. But I am a huge fan of travelling and seeing new things, towns, cities, countries and cultures. And I still have so many places on my bucket list.

With age I value even more being comfortable in what I am wearing and not accepting that beauty is pain. Chanel explained this so well when she said “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” This is so true!

As an author of a book about menopause and the years after forty I will also be blogging about menopause, higher age, health and just about everything else associated with getting older.

I hope you will enjoy following me on my blogging journey here and my travels around the world.



Hi, I´m Jona The 50plus Girl. I am a writer, blogger and a big life enthusiast with a Master´s degree in Editing and Publishing. My passions in life have always been fashion, languages and writing. I have enjoyed learning new languages, visiting new countries and learning about different cultures.

I am a wife and a mother to three wonderful young men who are my biggest achievement in life. Motherhood is the biggest and most important task I have ever taken on.


I love to travel and have been so fortunate to visit many different countries and continents . And I´m certainly not done yet! Paris was the first city that I choose to visit when I was allowed to travel alone without my parents. I had been waiting for many years to see and explore this charming city of fashion and style and when I was 18 years old the dream came true. Ever since Paris has been one of my favourites cities and I still visit frequently.

I am a gourmet person and a food lover. Cooking and dining out is something that I absolutely love doing. Starting off with a glass of the french Veuve Clicquot is always a beginning of something good. Well, you might say that I love everything french.


My goal with this blog is to show women over fifty that you can still dream and that you are never too old to learn something new or start something new. And you certainly can make your dreams come true after fifty. It is never too late to change your life and find your passion – that is if you haven´t already found it. You can still wear what you want and you don´t have to dress according to age, whatever that means. You can still have long hair, wear a bikini, use barrettes and colour your hair pink if you want to. Just be yourself!
