From the Daily Mail today
At 64, she shows that we can be proud of our body at any age, and we love it!
With the dictates of beauty that target women, women sometimes find it difficult to assume their bodies. A sixty-year-old proves that one can be good in one’s skin at all ages.
Be thin, do not have wrinkles… Women are subject to many injunctions as to their appearance. This can be a difficult weight to bear, which makes many of them feel bad about themselves. Fortunately, more and more voices are rising to denounce these dictates, and to show that there is not only one form of beauty. Ceril Campbell is one of them. At 64, she fully assumes her appearance on Instagram, and it feels good!
On the social network, the British woman regularly publishes photos of herself doing sports, having fun on the beach, eating good food … In short, enjoying life. But her account differs from that of other influencers on many points. First of all, it is with pride that Ceril Campbell displays her wrinkles, which are no longer signs of old age that must be hidden, but simple marks of time that show that we have lived. If she gives advice to stay in shape, she emphasizes that the most important thing is to feel good in your body and do what you want to do, without forcing yourself to have an impressive musculature. On some videos of her sports sessions she sometimes shows that she can not do it, to remember that there is no shame in having trouble doing things.
Ceril Campbell has known of these issues for a long time, since she was a life coach and image consultant for international stars. She knows how important the view of others can be, and that social networks can strongly influence the image one has of oneself. It can be negative, and lose the confidence one has in oneself. That’s why she gives this advice on her website: “I want you to look in the mirror and like what you see”. And she is right! Because, after all, what counts most is the image we have of ourselves, and not what others think of us. If she encourages women and men so much to work on the psychological aspect before working on the physical side, it is because she believes that one must be fulfilled to learn to love one’s body.
The Solgar press event this week showcased their latest vitamin range for joint and bone fitness and wellness. It was really interesting to listen to the nutritionist Paul Chamberlain about the science behind this range and why Solgar have launched these new products to help us achieve our fitness potential., Celebrity personal trainer Laura Williams also chatted to us on her thoughts on 2017 health and fitness trends.
It’s very interesting that the latest buzzword of healthy ingredients in the culinary world is Turmeric. Turmeric is well known to help reduce inflammation in the body.
Solgar 7 joint support and comfort for flexibility and mobility contains ingredients which include the natural anti-inflammatories- turmeric and ginger. (£25.99 for 30 tablets)
Solgar Full Spectrum Curcumin is the compound also derived from Turmeric. Also therefore targeting joint pain, inflammation and tenderness. (£27.50 for 30 tablets)
Solgar Extra Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM helps to support healthy joints and cartilage.(£43.00 for 60 tablets)
Solgar Ultimate Bone Support provide the key minerals calcium and magnesium with the vitamin K2 and D3 helping the absorption and support for bone building and support. (£22.99 for 120 tablets)
All these products are really interesting to me as someone who at 60 years old regularly participates in many sports from horse riding to dancing, and already has had significant cartilage wear and tear from being a ballet dancer in my youth.
I am excited to try out these vitamins especially the Solgar 7 as it was shown to have had significantly positive results on a testers over a 90 day period.

In York for a flying visit.
I was there for my lifestyle, style, image, self-confidence, best first impressions ‘Style your life’ consulting business.
I stayed at the Hotel du Vin which was perfectly situated close the York city wall, making it very easy to explore the beautiful city.
Here below are some of my favourite views of the City and of the stylish and comfy Hotel.
This was the makeover I did in July, for my lovely Style of Wight magazine “win a makeover” Winner Isobelle.
She and I worked together over 3 months on a diet/healthy eating regime. We looked through her wardrobe at which styles and colours worked best for her body shape and colouring, and selected those items which should go to charity as they weren’t going to be worn again. We discussed makeup, makeup brands, makeup tips and how to enhance her lips and eyebrows with clever makeup application.
During that time, I consulted with the brilliant hairdresser JoJo at Freshwater on what we wanted to achieve with a new more flattering haircut and colour for Isobelle’s face shape and skin tones.
The dress I selected for Isobelle to wear was from a selection of evening dresses to hire from Posh Frocks in Sandown, Isle of Wight. I chose this black and white evening dress for Isobelle to wear, as the wide, off the shoulder, light coloured neckline created a slimming illusion, balancing her body shape.
The large selection of dresses to buy or hire in Posh Frocks in sizes 8-24 were great value for when you need something for that special occasion. Especially when you are a curvy lady and its often difficult to find that perfect dress to buy.
Isobelle had lost 3 stone by the time of the photoshoot, and looked wonderful,
But my lifestyle and style makeovers aren’t simply for a day.
They are a life change plan to take forward, so I hope that all the hints and tips that I offered Isobelle will stay with her for the future.

My chat with Penny Smith on Talk Radio at Midday on May 1st on making the most of yourself.
Discussing a recent survey findings in which it seems that the perfect body shape is all about a hip to waist ratio. The smaller the waist the sexier the woman would be, Unfortunately nowadays our waists our bigger. Our dress a generous 16 and a small waist at 26 inches is an unlikely and mostly unachievable measurement for many women.
So I would say to all women and men that it’s all about 1st impressions and making the most of yourself. Find your best bits, concentrate on accentuating those and minimise and distract from the least favourite parts of you.
I want all my clients to love what they see in the mirror, whatever your size, shape and age. Everyone has the possibility to be your best you. My book Discover the New You may help you. You can dip in and out of it according to your self confidence, style and beauty dilemmas.
Why not start your journey today, in small steps..

#nomakeupselfie after my first visit to Lisa Harris Skin Science salon in Weybridge for a Collagen Wave treatment. The treatment that everyone has been talking about during Amanda Holden’s week standing in for Lorraine on ITV.
My skin was literally glowing, as you can see from this no-make-up selfie straight afterwards, and my most disliked part of my face (droopy chin) was definitely improved.
A long way yet to go as these radio frequency treatments are accumulative in effect over a 6 month period which varies according to each person.
The use of radio frequency has been used medically for many years. When the device touches the skin, It has the ability to heat large areas of collagen in the deeper skin layers and underlying tissue in safe controlled doses of Radio-frequency energy.
This heating action causes the deep collagen structures in the skin to immediately tighten and improve the existing collagen.
This treatment can be combined with other skin rejuvenation and aesthetic treatments.
Lisa added Peptides into the treatment gel she used on my face to help plump and nourish. The whole treatment was a lovely experience, not just because Lisa was pretty, charming and extremely knowledgeable but also because I love warmth and the radio waves are delivered into the skin layers through a gentle heat in the rollers which massage the face.
Not only did I have a fab and effective treatment which gave me an indication of how good my skin could look in the future after a series of treatments together with Lisa’s customised skin care regime and treatment programme,
But I also came away with a natural wax pure essential oils candle which is one of Lisa’s new signature classics. Lime and mint. A perfect relaxation fragranced candle.
Lisa is based in Knightsbridge and Weybridge
