How are you all getting on? How are you coping with staying at home? When I started making notes for my 'being fifty and fab' post earlier in March I never imagined how much our day to day lives would change in such a short time. It seems a bit odd to be talking about the outings I had earlier in the month! But I am so glad that I did manage to fit in some of these things.
My days now consist of tidying up after my family, wondering if I can log onto Ocado and update my shopping list, getting out for my daily walk, deciding what to cook for dinner, and have I got all the ingredients. Oh and trying to escape the noise caused by my husband running his business from home and the constant telephone calls. But I am still very busy, I've not yet had time to sit and watch TV or read the books I have piling up.
I've not done my regular 'being fifty and fab' blog post since last May!! Life got so crazy, I got busier on the blog and I needed to take some time off to support my daughters move to uni that meant I couldn't keep up with it all so my regular blog posts - being fifty and fab and embracing life ... in midlife had to take a break too. But I've missed them so I am starting here with this one. Normal service will resume!!
Being fifty and fab is my monthly round up of what I have been doing, wearing, exercising, and reading. Just my life really and sharing a few tips and thoughts along the way and encouraging you to live your best life and 'be fifty and fab too (or whatever age you might be ... approaching 50, turning 50 or post 50, it is all fabulous)
So here we are in March! Thank goodness spring might be on the way, what a wet and miserable February. I have had a really tough time recently and I am glad to see the back of the winter months. I have felt really uninspired by my wardrobe this season and I think that goes alongside my struggle with feeling so down but also my attempt to 'buy less' which given my recent mood is proving difficult. When I look back at my photographs from this time last year, we were already seeing some brighter days and I was beginning to wear lighter clothes, let's hope that is just around the corner this year!
These are my top tips, this is what I do to look fabulous at 50, feel fabulous at 50 and maintain my youthful looks! Share your tips in comments!
Being fifty and fab recently and a few days in the South of France to share with you #beingfiftyandfab
It's been another very busy month here at Fifty & Fab HQ! So much so that I have neglected to get my regular being fifty and fab post done so I am combining it this month and telling you about my few days in France over the bank holiday weekend. As well as sharing a few 'what I have been wearing' outfits. We have family who live in France and they have recently moved near to Montpellier in the Camargue region so a visit was a must. And what a beautiful area, so pretty but without the tourist crowds of the Cote d'Azur.
Although getting flights and decent accommodation was a challenge. We had to fly at 6.30 am from Luton with RyanAir (nooooo) - what is 'speedy boarding' all about then!? That didn't work, we went through in a separate queue to board then all ended up back in the same queue to the plane. Pointless. I eventually found an Airbnb in Le Grau du Roi which is a really pretty harbour town - although still about 40 minutes from our family which was a bit frustrating but being on the sea was worth it and desperately needed.
