Vicki Marinker Lifestyle blogger,freelance recruitment consultant

My name is Vicki, and I’m a mid-lifer and mum of two young boys, living in North London. I turned my world upside down in June 2014 when I decided to leave corporate life and start a ‘free range’ career.

As a free ranger, I have embarked on many new adventures and noticed a dearth of honest resources for women like me in their fabulous 40s and beyond. So I created www.lifestylemaven.co.uk where I curate, review and blog about things that I hope will bring you happiness, amuse you, make your life easier, help you look and feel great, or just provide some reassurance that you're not alone.

I’m a bit of a sucker for skincare and makeup and I am a recovering handbag addict. I love fine food and have a long list of restaurants I want to visit. I wish I had the inclination to cook more than the seven recipes I repeat over and over again, but still keep a list of all the meals I’ve cooked for guests dating back to 2008. I’m always on the look-out for ways to entertain my boys. And I love handbags. Did I mention that already?

If you’re interested in my opinion about a particular product, place or service, please get in touch. Integrity is very important to me, so my reviews will be honest.
