Unravelling the Ginge Unhinged Story
Victoria's path to becoming Ginge Unhinged took an unexpected turn when she faced menopause in her thirties due to surgery. Her background in wellbeing strategy and media had already set her on a mission to break the silence surrounding uncomfortable conversations. She rebelled against corporate jargon, choosing instead to focus on the essence of what truly matters—people.
Life threw its share of challenges at her, including battling endometriosis, raising two teenagers, managing a household of neglected houseplants, and keeping up appearances with a smile that didn't always reach her eyes. But it was her encounter with mental illness that became the turning point. She realised how far we still have to go in terms of openly discussing and supporting mental health, physical health, and the intricate web of emotions.
Victoria started to write, journal, and doodle. She ventured into social media, fearlessly addressing topics like dry vaginas and mental meltdowns with a catchy tune. To her surprise, she found a community of kindred spirits who shared her journey.
Through this community, she discovered her purpose—to disrupt the norm, to humanise the messiness of life, and to help others discover their inner strength.
"MY MENOPAUSE, MY JOURNAL, MY RULES": A Taboo-Crushing Journal
Victoria's latest creation, "MY MENOPAUSE, MY JOURNAL, MY RULES," is a daring plunge into the uncharted waters of menopause. But here's the twist—this journal isn't just for women of a certain age. It's for anyone, regardless of age, who has ever felt the swirl of uncertainty, faced overwhelming information, or experienced those "lose your sh*t" moments.
Victoria's personal journey through early menopause at 33, nearly saying goodbye to the life her surgery had saved, serves as the catalyst for this empowering journal. She wondered why no one had warned her about the challenges ahead. Determined to tackle both her physical and mental health, she turned to journaling, advocacy, community, and social media.
Through these mediums, Victoria unlocked the fierce spirit within her. She discovered her own rules and connected with a version of herself she never thought possible. Now, she invites you to embark on a similar journey.

On Our Recent ESG, Victoria told us why she decided to write a journal,
“Journaling saved me at my worst. Writing cathartically, getting stuff out of my head, ripping and burning stuff saved me I wanted to bring that cathartic energy to the readers so they could feel empowered.
“That the readers know this isn’t just a negative time, and that it is a time to be fierce and take action. The process healed me. This is an okay conversation to have. It’s okay to learn together and bring your networks together.”
