This is a rough idea of what you'll need to get to level 50 as well as quick ways of leveling up each skill as fast as possible.

You are going to require roughly 3 skills maxed at 100, another 3 around level 90 and 2 more between 50 - 60. Of course this all depends on what you choose to level up and could take more or less. These were the skills I chose so swap them out accordingly (Light armour for Heavy, Archery for melee etc).

It also doesn't hurt to get skill training once you get the 100,000 gold achievement as you will have nothing better to spent your coin on anyway. Also, don't forget to read every skill book you can find.

As noted in the comments make sure you get the lover stone perk, it makes all your skills go up 15% quicker, it can be found near Markarth.

100 Pickpocket

It may seem tedious but it's actually the easiest one, It shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes. All you have to do is reverse pickpocket gold onto a guard and then take it back. Start with around 200 gold and work your way up to 1000. It helps to be a part of the thieves guild so you can bribe the Riften guards to clear your bounty.

100 Smithing

Also easy but will come over time. Best way is to make Iron Daggers. After each quest or so you'll want to go around shop keepers and buy all the leather strips and iron ingots they have. Then just get yourself to a blacksmith and off you go. 100 Smithing is a very useful skill to have.

82 Block and 59 illusion

This is a more boring one but it isn't so bad. Go to the College of Winerhold and buy the Muffle (Costs 125 MP to cast) from the illusion mage. Now dual wield a shield and the spell at the same time. Now it's just a matter of getting into a fight with a weak enough enemy and blocking their attacks as you wait for your magic to recharge.

62 Light armour

Just take damage wearing armour, simple and will come as you play.

94 Sneak

I played a stealthy character hiding in the shadows. This just came over time playing the game but you could keep doing sneak attacks on an unkillable NPC to level it up quickly.

94 Lockpicking

Pick every lock in sight, break into lots of shops. The Museum within the keep in Markath has around 20 or so expert locks to pick. Go to the jails and open them up too!

100 Archery

Just kill things, simple.

Good luck!

Fun fact: It took 681 skill increases for me to reach level 50.
