It’s getting easier to find blogs that speak to women of a certain age. Bloggers who started writing in their late 20’s and 30’s are now past 40, and they thankfully continue to share their journey!

Previously known as The Art Muse, this blog by Rachel Matos focuses on perennial women: those of us who don’t let age get in the way of our dreams and desires. Rachel shares beauty, fashion and even parenting advice in her beautiful blog. She also writes about her Latino roots and gives tips on how to handle your online brand, as she is also the founder of BlueLotusCollective.com, a boutique social media agency.
