About Myself


Hi! My name is Mel and this is my blog. I am a 50 something wife and mother to four grown-up kids. I am currently working as a Cost Accountant in a manufacturing industry. Read on to learn more about me and why this blog is a testament that midlife is beautiful.

Midlife is the age between 45 to 65 years of age, the stage between early adulthood and old age. Does it mean that if we fall between these ages we are “old” or does the adage “age is just a number” is indeed a fact? We can’t stop the years rolling by but like many other women, I would like to grow old gracefully. By gracefully, I mean to be able to continue to work, enjoy life by being able to travel on short vacations, watch movies, dine, enjoy good food with my family. I want to take care of myself, my health, how I look, the way I dress.

This blog is about inspiring & empowering women in the midlife bracket, seeing that there are few blogs catering to these demographics, I mustered enough courage to put up a blog where midlife women can connect and relate with each other as they go through their midlife phase.

Middle life is Beautiful is an avenue for midlife women to bond over their midlife experiences in their family, relationships, health, beauty, fashion & travels.

From here on, I would be sharing posts about the midlife journey, my travels, about health, beauty & fashion for women the same boat as I am but maybe the younger sets can enjoy reading them as well.

I hope you continue to follow me as I embark on my midlife journey.

Welcome to my blog!

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skin care products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually these are skin care products that exfoliates the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it  I have to stop using it completely because, it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sun burned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ord…

What's in a life of a Work-at-home Mom

"Work-life balance is not a reality. You need to strive for work-life integration or work-life blend. My family is most important, but my job is also an important part of who I am and I want my kids to appreciate that." - Overheard at She Runs It Working Mother of the Year Awards




I need to work John's salary is not enough to provide for our family.
My Boss didn't approve my leave advise, he said I already incurred so many leaves and it's just a quarter of the year.
It's Jena's recital, David wanted me to attend because they have a sales meeting, but I said you should be the one to attend, we have a quarterly meeting as well.

Sweetheart, Mommy has to go to the office now, I'll be home soon, I bring you something, don't cry (Mommy & baby cries together).
