I will be honest and admit to struggling to find my style mojo right now! Some seasons it all just falls into place - like it did last year - but this year I can't quite seem to decide what I am loving! But I did a quick swoop on John Lewis last week and I do love the knitwear colours in their new John Lewis & Partners range. So here I am sharing an easy to wear autumn outfit - great for down days, errand days, pop on a black biker jacket or a faux fur gilet or jacket and you are good to go!
Following on from my first COMCIT anti-aging facial at Sunrise Health & Beauty, Dawn encouraged me to book in for an eyebrow shape and tint - or a better description - an instant facelift! I have had my eyebrows threaded and tinted and I have had a shape and tint in the past, but I do not get in done often enough. And really as women in our 40's and 50's we should be having this simple beauty treatment done monthly.
It makes such a difference! I was already feeling pretty refreshed and glowing from my first two facials so adding an eyebrow shape and tint really has lifted my face and defined my eyes.
It's time for my monthly round-up again! Being fifty and fab is my monthly post where I share what I have been doing to 'be' fabulous - lots of fashion for us over 50 women, style ideas and inspiration. I'd love you to get involved on Instagram too!
What do you do to be fabulous? Have you worn a fabulous outfit? Tag me! Have you been exercising regularly and really pleased with your progress? Tag me! Have you had a super fun day out? Tag me!
All you have to do is use the hashtag #beingfiftyandfab on Instagram and tag me @fifty_andfab so I see your post and then at the end of every month I will do a round-up of the best ones on stories or on my main Instagram grid. You can get involved at any time, there is no specific day, it can be any day when you did something to feel and be fabulous.
And this is what I have been doing to be fifty and fab in October ...
My son Alex was born the night the clocks changed in October 1997. I went into labour in the early hours of the morning on his due date. When we left for the hospital there was a really heavy frost, we couldn't find the car keys and I travelled there in the van, with my midwife following. It turned into a glorious autumn day though and I remember looking out the window from the labour room and commenting on how wonderful it all was - pain killers and an epidural talking. And today it is his 21st birthday and I can't believe how fast time has flown by,
