Day 3637 - Festival of Fifty - Universal Studios LA

Capturing the Youthfulness in FIFTY


If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that the Festival of Fifty has included a whole lot of travel that took us to Orlando, Miami, the British Virgin Islands, Pennsylvania, LA and home.

If you've followed me for a while you'll also recall that my word of the year is FIFTY which stands for 

F is for Fabulous 
I is for Inspired 
F is for Fitness
T is for Travel 
Y is for Youthfulness 

Today I take you on a photo tour of Universal Studios in Hollywood where the Y really got a good workout.

Day 3630 - Birthday Festival Postcard

Love and hugs from the British Virgin Islands


As I'm still travelling on the big Five Oh Birthday Festival Tour and want to do the BVI justice, I thought I'd just send you a quick postcard this week and leave the big BVI blog post until I have the time and space to write it properly.

So for the Lovin' Life Linky this week, given my birthday is tomorrow,  I simply give you ME owning my 50 year old self in a very scary and vulnerable way. Albeit with the turquoise beauty of the Caribbean waters in the background.  

I'm doing my best to own my 50 year old physical being which in no way lines up with the 35 year I feel like I am on the inside.  But, there you have it.  With one day to go it's time to accept that the years change us physically, The mindset however is a choice. The rest can be fixed with spanks, make-up, hair dye and chopping off the hail damaged legs by cropping your photos.

What are you lovin' about life this week?

Day 3616 - Disney or bust - how to do Disney World in two days

The BIG five ohhh birthday festival has begun.


Now if we were in Anaheim I could say you could do Disneyland in two days easily.  But over in Disney World Florida with Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood studios, water parks and Disney Springs, it's not quite as straight forward.

But we can sleep when we're dead right?  So might as well give ourselves a good ol' crack at it.

Day 3597 - The Magic of Tea

I believe a cup of tea is the answer to our problems.


Got a problem you can't solve?  Chat about it over tea.
Had a little spat with a friend?  Talk it through over tea.
Separated from your bestie by a huge ocean? Facetime over tea.
Got something you need to get off your chest? Let if fly over tea.
Trying to work out how to cure the world of disease? Brainstorm over tea.
Need to work on diplomatic relations?  Get the world's leaders together over tea.
Lost a loved one? Think happy memories and drink their favourite tea.

Day 3590 - Fit Fabulous and Slightly Fatigued - FIFTY

Ok, Ok, I'm finally getting the Fitness part of this FIFTY gig on the way


On Monday night I walked into the gym that sponsors our football team to sign up the lad and before I knew it I was lifting kettle bells, pushing some big weights contraption across the floor like a Rugby player and rowing my way on a carpet river to nowhere.

How much do you love your dressing gown?

My dressing gown - you know it's loved when you find food stains on the lapel

During the week one of my bloggy pals shared a post about the dressing gown. Thanks for the inspo!

Anyway, it got me to thinking about my own dressing gown.

Day 3576 - The health benefits of ice-cream

Sometimes you just need to curl up in bed with a bucket of ice-cream


After project managing a major conference that saw me working 7am to 7pm for the last three days and much of last week, a girl can't be blamed for feeling exhausted.  So last night I came home and promptly went to bed with a bucket of ice-cream, a chick flick and a couple of Panadol.
