Modern Country Style in House Of Fifty

Have you heard of the scrumptious online magazine
Well, I'd say it's just about time you did,
so let me introduce you...

House of Fifty is edited by the uber-glamorous Janell Beals. 
For some reason, which is utterly beyond me, she has suffered from ageism. When the producers of a television show that Janell was potentially going to front, found out that she was all of 49, the door of opportunity suddenly closed. 
Outrageous, no?

Spurred on by that rejection, Janell launched House of Fifty a little over a year ago. Having just launched its sixth gorgeous issue, the online magazine is a big yah-boo to all those who think younger women don't need aspirational figures, and that older women don't have anything to offer. That's just total tosh. Grrrr..... Janell is exactly the kind of woman that I look up to. I've found her to be always encouraging, always welcoming and always admirable, as well as having incredibly good taste. Here's a couple of images from her home so you can see what I mean:

Each issue of House of Fifty manages to positively drip with great ideas...super-stylish but not exclusively so, these gems are ones that you just know would work for you in your own home.

Oh, and did I mention that Modern Country Style has been featured in this issue as one of two British blogs, in celebration of the London Olympics this year? 

The feature is on pages 131-135.

Thank you so much for having me, Janell.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Thank you so much!!

I have to say that I was shamefully excited - I had massive butterflies when I saw the feature!!

The timing was especially nice as I'm currently in the middle of a LOT of nappy-changing, feeding and trying to slot in naptimes - oh, the glamour!!

Sarah, what a kind post...I'll try to live up to it! :) It was a pleasure to work with you on this feature as well as the other posts you have done in the past for the blog, you are a class act, adorable and so talented. I couldn't believe when you sent your materials that you were about to have your 5th baby, what a blessing! Enjoy...and thanks for sharing HOF with your readers today. Janell

I must go back and read it again!

Oooh how super - congratulations! I really like the magazine. Being the 'wrong' side of 50 myself I say more power to Janell's elbow!
