About FunkyForty

Hi! I’m Yvonne. A 40 something Kiwi, based in Zurich, Switzerland. With a love for Fashion, Travel, Shopping and Food. A great  believer that chocolate will cure almost anything!  Also the Mum of a cute teenager (dare I say it).

The purpose of the FunkyForty online magazine is to share style tips and ideas. As well as positive energy to my readers. Visiting Milan and Paris Fashion weeks each season to ensure we know the latest in hot trends.  Also visiting great locations and sharing these as inspiration of where to go for a recovery break away from every day life. Be sure to scroll down the home page to see a selection of fabulous sweet recipes.

This platform is aimed at the woman over 40 but not only. The mission is to stay young at heart by keeping up to date with latest trends. Nothing will make you older than the notion of having your style and not changing it!

Passing inspiration to others. After all, 40 something is still young!

    1. Hi

      Thank you

    2. Kia Ora Yvonne, just a note to say how much I’m enjoying your blog. While not a great consumer, it’s so interesting to see what’s happening out there and I do love the energy and imagination you exude. Also loving your recipes especially the Kiwi favourites. We’re a Kiwi couple living on Shetland Island so no surprise really, Thx so much for bringing zing into my days! Jane x

    3. OMG Yonne ich bin Baff! Dein Blog ist ja ein Feuerwek an Info und welche Arbeit dahinter steckt! Habe den Blog abonniert und werde nun sicher regelmässig vorbei schauen!

    4. Love you’re blog! I’m going to Zurich this week and have totally scoured your site. I may try to hit up La Tienda, too. Great stuff, please keep publishing!!!

      1. Thank you so much dear Renae.
        Unfortunately La Tienda is closed for 2 weeks Summer vacation but I am certain if you wanted something online she would send it to your hotel.
        Let me know if you need any tips about where to go etc.

        Have a lovely day,
