Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

Review : Daisy London Jewellery

I wear minimal jewellery; usually a simple pair of earrings, my wedding ring, a bracelet and occasionally a necklace, so when I recently received a piece of jewellery from Daisy London I was really pleased to see that the elegant design fitted in with my simplistic style, yet it stood out on its own merit.

Review : Typecast : Daisy London Estée Lalonde Intention Chain Necklace

Daisy London say themselves that they are "...a much-loved British jewellery brand known for beautiful, everyday jewellery with meaning. At the heart of Daisy lies an adventure, a love for life, a need to explore. Acknowledging that we are all part of something much bigger and that together, we are everything." Daisy London is inspired by vintage treasures but don't take themselves too seriously.

My Estée Lalonde Intention Chain Necklace is 18ct Gold Plate and is designed to be worn as part of a layered selection of necklaces. It fits really well when paired with my existing chain which was bought a few years ago, laying flat against my décolletage, sitting in the perfect position.

Daisy London jewellery ordering is very easy and delivery is quick, with your item presented in a velvet bag within its own presentation box. A gift bag is also supplied for that extra touch if you are purchasing for a loved on. Each piece of jewellery has been handcrafted from 100% recycled silver with the highest quality 18ct gold plate.  You can get lots of inspiration from their Instagram page and my order also came with the summer issue of their dedicated magazine catalogue, Daisy Times. 

This post was written in collaboration with Daisy London and I was gifted the necklace.
