Sequin in the New Year! Style not Age.

Morning, welcome to my over fifty blog.
As it's the last Monday in December, it's the latest instalment from Style Not Age - not only that the latest blog post of the year!  This year has gone so fast, I nearly blinked and missed it!
With so much to look forward to in the coming new year - I'm excited to get started.  Two new babies are due in 2019 (if one's not already made an appearance) a wedding and who knows what else will happen.
I've well and truly fallen off the diet and drink wagon, eating way too much over the festive season, along with having a few cheeky drinks too.  But with the new year just around the corner, my sights are set for 'getting back to normal' & continuing my hard work of losing weight.  After all I do have a wedding to get trim for! How about you?

Let's talk Style not Age challenge,  this task was set by Emma, and happens to fall on NYE so she aptly named the tag ...
'Sequin in the New Year' catchy eh?

So we're all sharing our sparkly, sequined styles - go on ... take a look - maybe for some inspiration of what you can wear.

Merry Christmas!

Welcome my friends, if you've found the time to visit my blog today I say a great big "Thank You".
I know you're all so busy with you preparations for the big day so appreciation your time.
I'll be cooking this morning and going out for a family meal in the afternoon - so what hasn't been done by lunch time then it isn't getting done!!!

Not much happening on the blog, so I thought I'd share ten things I love about Christmas.  You can see quite a few are food based, my favourite thing in the world! Lol

H & M skirt & Lurex jumper - #chicandstylish #linkup

Hi there lovelies, how's I going in the land of over fifty blogging?
Finally seeing the end of the tunnel with my Christmas preparations, with only 5 more sleeps I just need to get the last of the presents wrapped and get the food shopping done.  How about you?  All finished?
I returned home from Abu Dhabi with not one but two new pieces, you might have seen my blog relating to this classic ball covered jumper paired with floral trousers, now here's the other item I bought.
I'm a great fan of pleated skirts and have worn a variety of them over the past year - my luxurious red velvet one, this cobalt blue swishy sweetie or this cream beauty to name a few.
So I thought it was about time I added a patterned one.  Step forward my new little beauty.

Holiday to Abu Dhabi

We're all on the countdown to that special day, I do hope your preparations are going well.  I had hoped to be finished by now, but sad to say I've still got a few presents yet to buy.  Maybe hopefully I'll be done and dusted by the end of this week. 🤞
Been away for a cheeky pre-Christmas overnight stay with our four best friends.  We don't need to go far to have a fantastic night out with them & honestly we don't stop laughing from the moment we meet until we say goodbye!  We stayed in a very nice pub near the town and basically ate, drank and laughed, I need a week to get over it I think.

Another fun break or holiday I've been on was a recent trip to Abu Dhabi with hubby and six friends.
Having visited last year to go to the F1 race we were all eager to repeat the experience, although we didn't make the Grand Prix this time we still had a super time.

H & M Jumper from Abu Dhabi #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning lovelies.

Busy busy for Mummabstylish this week!
Hair appointment - to cover my grey, Christmas shopping, spin class, boring housework and a very important school Nativity play!  Rather excited to see my granddaughters first school performance.   Obviously my princess had the principle part - yes a very important ….. sheep.  Considering how shy she actually is that was quite a landmark for her and I couldn't be more proud.

Falling back on an old pair of trousers today, something floral and small.  I've been struggling with trousers in my wardrobe since losing weight with many of my lovely trews too big for me!  Not a bad thing I know, but now my choices are very limited!  So rummaging through my cupboards I found these that had been relegated to the back because the were slightly too small!  What joy to find they fit now, and dare I say are slightly too big!!  *Smug face emoji*  So what to pair with floral ankle trousers?

Check trousers from Krisp.

Hiya, how are you over fifty bloggers doing?
How's your Christmas shopping going?  Are you an 'I've got everything already' or 'I'm leaving it until Christmas Eve' person?  Me... I'm somewhere in between!  I've bought a few pieces already, but still have a mountain of presents to decide on, buy and wrap, although I'm making a concerted effort to get most of them done this week, I hate struggling nearer the time and vow every year not to put myself through a difficult run up to the festive period.  I'll keep you posted how I get on!

Tartan, check or plaid, whatever you call it, it's in fashion!  Everyone is wearing it in some form or another!  So I was pleased to receive these grey check trousers from Krisp recently.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Joules Scarf GIVEAWAY #chicandstylish #linkup

Good morning, how's it going in over fifty blogging land?  I'm really chuffed you've stopped by today as I've got something special to share and you all have a chance to win it in the GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

I've was out nearly all day yesterday!  Got quite a few pressies, so now need to enlist the help of a good wrapper .. hint, hint! (in case hubby is reading) he's rather good at singing too - lol!  😂
Still plenty to buy, but I'm getting there slowly but surely.  Just need to ask, when shopping for others, does anyone else see mountains of clothes and accessories in the shops that would be great presents for themselves?  Why does that happen?  When I'm looking for me, I never see anything!!  I wanted so much ... a bag, a skirt, a coat, a jacket, numerous pairs of shoes and a couple of dresses - the only thing to do is take lots of photos and leave lots of clues laying around the house. 😉

Denim Shirt over Leopard Print Skirt .

Morning to you all and hope you've had a great weekend!

Christmas has definitely started in Mummab's household - we put our Christmas decorations up and how fun & festive they look.  I just love seeing all the decorated trees, baubles and lights throughout the house.  We've had to buy more lights to hang outside as our old ones were … old and broken!  Along with these I'm buying a couple of Christmas trees to place either side of my front door.  Since we tidied it up in the summer there's a space to display them.   I go all gooey eyed when I see the decs up, who else likes to turn the main lights off and look at the tree through squinty eyes - or is it just me?

I thought I'd show another of my pieces from Krisp Clothing today.  I received this leopard print stretchy pencil skirt* & after searching through Pinterest for a few ideas, came up with this one.
