Hello! How are you all? Welcome to September, I am so looking forward to getting back to a normal routine, how about you? I took a bit of an extended break from my blog this summer, I was getting way too overwhelmed and wanted to spend some time with my family especially with my daughter being home from university. Hopefully you have seen a bit of what I have been up to if you follow me on Instagram.
We had a lovely 'heatwave' holiday in the Rame Peninsula, South East Cornwall, and we've had some fun days out too. I've also been working hard behind the scenes to organise my blogging admin a bit better, and I have moved my blog office into my log cabin but. more on that soon! This blog post is an update on life 'being fifty and fab' ... I also have some lovely products to share with you, read on for a gorgeous gold necklace layering set from Daisy London, details of a new programme to help us become alcohol free (or cut down), a stylish dress up / dress down / multi season outfit from Saint and Sofia and all the other news from Fifty & Fab HQ!

Hello! Another month gone by and I am now feeling a bit cheated, where is summer? Yes we've had some brighter days but I've not really done the sitting outside much or BBQ fun yet. I am really hoping for a change in July as we are off to Cornwall then Anglesey for a few days.
I am delighted about the new Health Minister, no comment on the circumstances, but I am encouraged to read that Sajid Javid has said 19th July 2021 will be the end of the restrictions in the UK and we have to learn to live with Covid. I will be ready to burn my masks, I have hated wearing them!
Now when can the world travel again? I've got a wardrobe full of summer dresses and swimwear I want to wear!
Here is a little peak at what I have been up to in June 'being fifty and fab' ....
Being fifty and fab ... my May highlights including a father's day gift, a fun weekend away and a mayor's inauguration!
Hello! Well finally, we have some warmer weather! I can get my summer dresses out! My wardrobe has been looking a bit uninspiring and crowded. Not quite ready to put the winter woolies away but not quite ready to go 'full on summer' either, honestly same days I have no clue what to wear. May has been a busy social month, so I have a few fun things to share with you. June gives us Father's Day and I have a super new product launch from Thomas Clipper to tell you about. My daughter is living in London on a residential placement this month so I have a weekend with her to look forward to! Read on and find out more about 'being fifty and fab' this month ...
I wish it would warm up! Anyone else fed up with feeling cold, I am desperate to get my lighter clothes and dresses out now! I know it is still early and last year was an exceptional spring but with all the having to eat outside thing, I'd really like some improvement! Have you been out yet? We managed to get lunch out a couple of weeks ago, booked well in advance though!
My big achievement this month was raising £265 for my friend's daughter - you can read all about why on my blog post Jessica's story and her fight for a life | and homemade fudge thank you so much to everyone who ordered fudge or donated to my fundraising efforts. I hope it arrived and you enjoyed! My daughter was in charge of packaging and post office and her housemate Kiera made the fudge as part of her Fudge4Charity initiative.
A message from Kiera ...
‘I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone single one of you who bought fudge, and to those who didn’t buy fudge but still donated to Jessica’s fund. I started my venture, Fudge4Charity, to give something back to the community and without you guys it wouldn’t be possible so thank you again very much’.' Love Kiera xx
Kiera and my daughter Emily are both students at Norland College in Bath.
