Who is Fortyish Love?

I’m Helen, an almost 40 years old Brit livingĀ in Italy, and I have recently started learning to play tennis. I have never been particularly good at sports, but over the past 2 years I have lost weight, started running and keeping fit (with lots of burpees, planks, squats, lunges…) and I have decided to put my newly developed muscles and fitness to good use!

I love activewear and when I first started playing tennis I only wore leggings and shorts but then I realised that there is a whole world of gorgeous tennis skirts, dresses and bags which allow me to explore my “passion for fashion” whilst playing tennis.

I have recently transitioned to a plant-based diet, so I am excited to use my blog to discuss the recipes I am trying and the way I am feeling.
