Decades ago, 50-year old women were considered ‘elderly’ – and most of them did look every inch what that word defines? In today’s modern world however, like old wine, many women in their 50s are ageing gracefully and looking far younger than their chronological age. Most are blessed with extremely good looks, vitality and a sunny disposition. They are enjoying life to the fullest much more than they did when in their 30s, providing important insights into today’s modern-day lifestyle. These are women who have paid their dues – they have worked very hard over the years to build a family, a career and a happy future for themselves, and at this stage they are relishing all the goodness that comes with maturity and experience.

The Animal that best describes me is a Lioness, as that is the meaning of my name, AFISHETU. I possess its bold, fierce, confident, aggressive, protective and leadership characteristics, although I could be emotional and empathetic in certain situations.

Profession: Project Manager.
Status: Mother of 2 grown up children.
Health: I drink warm water first thing and room temperature water all day long; eat colourful fruits and berries; avoid processed foods; and eat more chicken, turkey and fish than red meat.
Beauty Regimen: I wipe off all makeup before going to bed using gentle facial wipes and a moisturising/cleansing facial wash, then use a gentle facial toner after washing. I complete the regimen using a good quality day/night cream, and a separate night eye cream.

The Animal that best describes me is a Wolf – because I am very loyal (and expect others to be), assertive, a goal getter, resilient, bold, very adaptable, sociable, a mentor, clear headed and very strong willed. In addition to being kind, tactful and empathetic, I could sometimes be confrontational if it’s required. I am often described as an ambivert, or one with a paradoxical personality.
Likes: I love peace, meditating, travelling, Spa getaways, socialising, music, exploring, research and continually developing myself.
