Let me help you spread your message as a blogger and social media influencer.
Topics I typically write about include travel, (it’s my passion) smart eating, wellness, fashion, beauty, entertainment, lifestyle and other issues pertaining to Baby Boomer women. I approach brand collaboration in a variety of ways – in the form of sponsored posts, affiliate relationships, giveaways, advertising opportunities, and press events. For my current statistics, download my media kit. (updated 7-31-2019)
The Baby Boomer Market comprises 40% of the market share
According to Forbes Magazine, there are over 70,000,000 Baby Boomer consumers making it a huge and affluent market that controls 70% of all disposable income in the U.S. Boomers are also tech-savvy.
96% of Baby Boomers use search engines, 95% use email, and 92% shop for products and services online rather than shopping in stores and shopping malls.
After spending over 6+ decades on the planet, I’ve had a world of experience.
Travel and Fun – Exploring the world is my ultimate goal and I blog about the places on the planet I happen to land. When I’m not on a trip I explore my hometown of Los Angeles, which is a world unto itself. I attend culinary and entertainment events, local attractions, visit historical sites, go on hikes, and walking tours. I live within driving distance to Orange County, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Temecula, Palm Springs, San Luis Obispo, and other Southern & Central California locations. I’m also up for traveling to other states in the U.S and abroad. Foreign countries I’ve visited so far include Italy, Spain, Austria, Hungary, Germany, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Gibraltar, England, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean. Please consider me for press trips and special events.
Eating smart and clean is my mantra and I create healthy recipes for longevity that are low in sugar without processed ingredients, artificial flavors or preservatives. I do not promote junk food, meal replacement diet plans, and most supplements. I’m a die-hard foodie and love to attend culinary and foodie events.
Wellness – Maintaining good health, staying active, self-care, having a positive body image, living long and happy as we age are other topics I write about. I’m always interested in alternative healing, and particularly disease prevention.
Image – Women in the Baby Boomer demographic (50+) want to look sharp and not frumpy. Fashion over 50, vibrant and luminous skincare products and spa pampering are topics all my readers love to read about.
Reinvention – Women midlife and beyond are reinventing themselves multiple times as they transition from traditional jobs. They’re looking for new opportunities, want to improve themselves and be solvent and successful after retirement. They tend to live longer than men and take care of children, parents, and relationships. (often all at the same time) Products that promote self-improvement and empowerment would be of interest to my audience. As a woman who became a widow at the young age of 47, I’ve reinvented my self numerous times.
What you may not know about me – I’ve been a professional actress and voice-over artist since the early 80s and am an active member of SAG-AFTRA. You can read more about my “other life” here. I’ve even starred in a couple of movies. I would call myself more infamous than famous.
