Sharing beauty, my Coeur De Lion Present.

Morning lovely readers.

You're doing well the weekend is in sight!  I've got over my marathon of birthdays, and I'm still in one piece  - phew!
Mine, granddaughters and eldest sons birthdays one after the other, this after 4 birthdays last month, and one next month making a nice expensive couple of months in the mummabstylish household!

I mentioned on Monday I'd received some super birthday presents and wanted to show you two of them.

We all love a necklace don't we?  I've been lucky enough to get not only a stunning necklace but a matching bracelet too.
Shopping with hubby last Saturday he spotted these in our local department store and picked this eye catching dazzler for me.  I love having a gift that hubby has picked - makes it all the more special for me!

I'd not heard of Coeur De Lion before, the outstanding collection being handmade in Germany and my photos don't really do my gifts justice.
The display enclosed in the glass cabinet was breath taking, quite frankly I would have been happy with any one of them, but hubby chose this mysterious black beauty for me, and I'm as pleased as punch with his choice.
It's a GEO cube design and is hand-finished from onyx, combining sparkling Swarovski crystals, rhinestone rondelles,  paired with delicate glass cylinders and a stainless steel fastener.
I have to add I'm looking for the perfect outfit to debut my birthday acquisition, and you'll be the first to see it when I do!













I'm feeling this will look fabulous with quite a number of colours - the obvious being black, however having the iridescent, rainbow like beams radiating from the necklace and bracelet a whole host of colours could (and will) be worn with them.  My first thought was lemon, possibly silver and definitely white.  Have you any ideas?  I'd love to hear from you.


I'm hoping you can stop by next week when I'll be featuring the top and trousers my children gave me for my birthday.  That's all according to the outfit fitting me, so we'll see how that goes - don't hold your breath it might be a none starter if it doesn't! Lol.



I'd also like to give a big 'shout out' to some fabulous 50+ bloggers, some I've had the privilege of collaborating with and others I've mused over from afar!  
From the likes of Laurie from Vanity and Me. Gail from Is this Mutton and Jodie from J touch of Style, along with Amy from Styling Granny Mama, we are all making a big impression on the Over Fifty Blogging scene, sharing our own specific style. 
We're rocking our frayed jeans, metallic shoes and pattern mixing to the limits.  I urge you to get over to their sites and check out just what Over 50's fashion bloggers do just as good (if not better) than our younger rivals!

See you on Monday - if you get the chance to pop back, until then it's been interesting.


Bye for now. X
