When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden 
Is the way to go.
I cannot recommend her more highly. 
I've just had my second appointment with her.
.
She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.
.
Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart. .
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.
.
It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
.
It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL - good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.
.
Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.
.
It even checks for cancer markers.
.
Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Viddhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.
.
The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180. .

Well done on raising so many thousands of £s auctioning the controversial one shoulder dress for your charity @girlguiding as a result of - wearing a dress that had slipped off the shoulder and was deemed inapropriate in the House of Commons. .
It's easy to have clothing malfunctions and indeed my own @zara top in the photo can be worn in all ways - exposing shoulders or not.
.
Women are continuously judged and often more harshly by other women than by men. .
My lifestyle consultancy takes me into organisations where women prefer to often dress androgynously- in trousers- in black- to not be noticed for what they wear- but only for the excellent job they do.
.
I also speak in schools- where teenage girls feel the need to look perfect- especially on their social media- affecting their mental health.
.
I hope my own social media feed, that is never filtered,  inspires and can show women - young and old - that we can all be individual. Embracing our quirks and flaws make each of us unique and special.  No celebrity I have ever dressed had a perfect body or flawless face in my past 30 year career as a celebrity stylist. .
We shouldn't be afraid to wear what we feel comfortable in- however- if we work in an organisation and are customer facing,  then we are the face of the brand and should dress accordingly. .
Be true to yourself, don't compare and don't let the judgement of others break you. .

Sometimes it’s a specs day

Sometimes it's a specs day. .
If you wear contact lenses it's good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
.
I've worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night. 
I felt 'less than' in my specs- not confident, not sexy - not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours. 
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing-  not an embarrassing encumbrance.

The blue jacket is a vintage 1980's Jasper Conran

Sale shopping bargains

We all like to find a bargain or two to add to our wardrobes when we're not re-wearing or upcycling our clothes- as the Duchess of Cambridge did last night at the Baftas.

Wearing vibrant colour can bring you joy and brighten up your day.
Sometimes it's good to venture out of your comfort zone and experiment.
.
Today I'm wearing :
Cotton crop polo-neck from Zara (under £10) 
Blue trousers from Zara sale £5.99 (reduced from £29.99) 
Heels from TK Maxx in 2019 (around £30)

A lasting close friendship of over 30 years is one where you don’t see each other for months, often even years, and then pick up again as though no time has passed at all

With my fave photographer friend,  @nickyjohnston having the best Indian dinner at the new restaurant 1947, London. .
It's definitely not the same price or the same food as your local ordinary Indian takeaway - It's an out of the ordinary special treat night out.

Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Chilling with @missmollysmusings 
After a Qi Gong class.
.
Qi Gong is a centurires-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.
.
I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic. .
