Starts at 60 Project – the Secret to Happiness

Recently we had the pleasure of collaborating with Starts at 60 – the coolest community of over – 60s on the planet. What was so special about this experience was the fact that Starts at 60 used two of their gorgeous readers to shoot this campaign. The lovely readers chosen were Louise Menzies and Brenda Fowler. We couldn’t wait to chat with these ladies after the shoot. They looked so vibrant and happy. We wanted to find out what their secret was. We hope you enjoy reading the interview that we done with them as much as we did. We hope that it puts a smile on your face and you learn something valuable – like Brenda said “Be positive and believe that anything is possible!”.

First up we chatted to Louise Menzies from Stats at 60…

The secret to happiness is first of all to be happy in your own skin.

Going through and beating breast cancer.

Being positive and believing that anything is possible.

I live it loud by being true to me. As a result I wear what I’m confident in every day. I also love wearing colour – it makes me happy.

What’s the best piece of advice you would give to your younger self?

“Do it Now”  because if you procrastinate on it you may miss out and it will be too late. It’s not until you get older you say things like “Oh I should have done that”.

What’s the secret to happiness?

The secret to happiness is to enjoy life and do as much as you can each day. Furthermore live life to its fullest.

What are you most proud of?

I’m most proud of changing my career after 30 years and working casually as a TV extra.  I’m having the time of my life right now and I wouldn’t change it for anything.  Some amazing opportunities have come my way and I’m loving life.

What do you think is the greatest strength of a woman?

Above all the greatest strength of a woman is just getting out there and taking risks and living life. Women are so multi-talented because just get out there and do it.  Stay positive and love yourself.

How do you live it loud?

Living it Loud is by being out there, being seen and by making a statement. This is me and I’m proud of it because I’m not afraid to experiment with colour, clothing and the right accessories.

What do you think is the secret to happiness? Let us know – we would love to hear from you!
