Chatting about how the perceptions of the perfect body and young women’s positive body image has been dramatically and adversely affected with the advent of social media, especially over the last 10 years.
.
Back in the day – in the 1970s, the decade in which my novel “Secrets in the Dark” is set – young women would have scrutinised their bodyshapes in the mirror, wishing they could have been slimmer, taller or even bigger breasted – looking more like their favourite model or pop star – and addressed their issues with a dramatic diet or some slimming pills.

They never had the pressure of negative online peer judgement and the skewed perceptions of online reality versus real life, causing comparison anxiety, unrealistic ideals of perfection and mental health issues.

I ventured into London’s West End yesterday for my first facial after 6 months

I ventured into London's West End yesterday for my first facial after 6 months. 
I had been recommended to try Dr Rasha's clinic in Mayfair.
.
I was temperature checked on arrival, the reception staff were behind screens and wearing masks, and masks were obligatory in the waiting areas and for therapists. 
.
The clinic was extremely professional, clean and somewhere any new anxious client would feel completely  confident and comfortable, in these post-lockdown Covid times,  to go to be treated. 
.
Here I am in pic 1, all masked up, with the lovely owner- Dr Rasha aesthetics physician and clinic director,  and in  pic 2 here I am after my facial with my 65-year old happy shiny face that loved the professional tlc and pampering it had just received. 
.
I will be revisiting again very soon. Thank you for my lovely afternoon. 
.
(Btw, this isnt an ad, I only write and post about places and products that I believe in and make a difference to my life and may inspire others).
