I'm back with my regular post after the Christmas break! And I'm really hoping to get some love behind my hashtag #beingfiftyandfab on Instagram. It's simple really - if you are 50 soon, if you are in your 50's, if you are doing something, or wearing something that makes you feel amazing and you feel fifty and fab then share it on Instagram, tag me @fifty_andfab and use the hashtag #beingfiftyandfab - any day, any time, no rules, just tell me what you are doing to feel fab and I will check them each month and share my favourites.
It's been a busy month! I nearly didn't do this post but then I thought there have been some lovely things going on to share with you. And to ask you what you have been doing to 'be fifty and fab'?
I've been up to London two Monday's in a row and this week was pretty manic as I had a 10.30 am appointment - I ran for the train, missed the train, realised the next one was on a different platform, ran back, just got on it, to then hear it was delayed. I thought there was no way I'd make my appointment on time but I did! Then I got caught in pouring rain with no umbrella and no hood, that'll teach me. I was glad to get home.
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 ...
Hi, how are you all? Thank you so much to those of you who voted for me in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards run by BritMums recently, voting has now closed and I will find out the results on 12th October during a twitter party - yep I had never heard of it either but I have now! It is a chat that anyone can join in using a pre-advised hashtag, but 12th October will be my first one so I will let you know if I manage to work it out.
But more exciting news - I then had an email from Asquith (see my review of their ethical activewear here) who run their own blogger awards - Asquith Adores Blogger Awards - and I have been nominated in their Best Over 40s Blogger category. I am pretty stunned and obviously very excited. I am nominated alongside bloggers that I consider to be 'big' and who I really admire and who inspired me to start blogging! I'd love it if you could vote for me - it is really easy to do so on this link - vote here - thank you so much!
