Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast.

Scrambled eggs with organic butter, wilted spinach, and smashed avocado on seeded multigrain  toast. A nutritious breakfast to keep you feeling fuller longer with less blood sugar highs and lows. 
12 hours since last meal and this 1st meal of the day to help digestion.
I start the day with warm lemon water and then a small swig of Kefir with a liquid multi-vitamin mixed in with it.  All fermented foods help to promote good gut health.

Morning PT HIIT workout

Morning PT HIIT workout. 
Monday morning training with a mix of boxing, agility and core exercises.

As you can see from the video clip I'm not the best in fast side to side movements due to past injury restrictions and an element of caution!
(hip resurface and torn glute med 3 years ago,  and injured knee ligaments this March) 
However at 63 I am grateful to be fit and able to do everything I want to do from pilates and dance classes to horse riding,and paddleboarding. .

Blonde again! with my wonderful very pregnant colourist

Blonde again! with my wonderful very pregnant colourist. 
Hoping that the baby doesn't come early!  @chanelnott 
As we get older the creamy tones of blonde hair are so important as hair colour should compliment, brighten and enhance your facial skin tones. .

A selection of my favourite makeup brushes and products from @primark

A selection of my favourite makeup brushes and products from @primark.beauty .

I was browsing in Primark Oxford st and checked out their new beauty products which apparently have had a recent significent financial investment. 
I was really impressed with their makeup brushes which I then bought for a transgender MTF client so she could experiment with her newly learnt makeup application techiques, taught by me, with these brilliant inexpensive makeup tools.

The brush prices ranged from £1-£2.50 and were excellent in both texture and balance between softness and firmness for application and blending away.

The key to a good make application is blending and blending away. 
Its not all about countouring as seen in so many airbrushed insta MUA posts. 
It's so important to be able to blend away,  especially for a trans girl who may still be covering her remaining beard growth during her laser/electrolysis/hormone treatments with layers of concealer products,  foundation and powdering to set.

However blending away is important for all girls whether it's eyeshadow, foundation, concealer or blusher.
.
.

The brushes shown here include double ended brushes:
Angled eyebrow brush
Eyeshadow and concealer brush
Apply and blend brush 
Foundation and concealer brush
Powder and finish brush 
And
Blender sponge
Mattifying powder
And an artist palette of eyeshadows.

Great makeup tools for starting out.
Total £29! ( i doubled up on some of the brushes for my client)
