August 2017 in my mind is full of sunshine and sparkles, in reality I think there was more rain and grey skies. I do know it was for the most part a happy, busy and exciting month for me.
August 2017 started with me having an idea for a new hashtag on instagram. read more here #bloomingsleeves
This was the result when I last checked instagram, how cheery are those flowery pics?
Then came my final ‘Five over 50’ challenge the theme was ‘Orange is the new black’
Did you see the pics?

As a family we went on a little ‘Staycation’ in sunny Devon.
I know it may be sad to get excited about a supermarket opening but I certainly did when a brand new Lidl opened up the road! I even went comparison shopping
My Exciting News in August 2017.
I promise to tell you much more next week, but briefly I was chosen by JD Williams along with 5 other blogger/influencers and journalists to be part of JD Williams’ re-branding and re-launching campaign.
To say I was excited and very proud would be an understatement. I was beside myself and couldn’t stop smiling all last month.
I travelled up to Manchester for the night, stayed in a lovely hotel where I met the film crew and my fellow bloggers. We then went out for a marvellous meal and the next day we were up bright and early to start videoing and shooting for JD williams Autumn and christmas collection. I returned home exhausted (it must be my age) but feeling uplifted full of inspiration after having met so many wonderful, creative people.
Here are the six of us in our Autumn outfits and our party outfits. You may recognise some of the other bloggers?
From L to R in the first pic: Catherine from Not dressed as Lamb, me, Emily from Fashion Foie Gras, Jenny a journalist who blogs as The treasure Hunter and Busola a magazine and lifestyle editor and Nikki from Mid Life Chic
As you cans see we had lots of fun and I promise to show and tell you more about this very soon after the re-launch has happened.
