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).

Sunday’s daily walk – finally wearing jeans, not leggings – and with clean hair too

One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life – even briefly.

#tbt How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal

Our new normal changes daily.

We have to be positive and live in the moment – not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to – apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.

You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake – however bad.
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen
Get dressed
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well

The pics are Nesse left and top right, and bottom right- me

Nesse is a brilliant pilates and barre teacher.
I am 65 and try to keep myself fit and healthy.

In life before Covid19 I spoke on radio, TV and in schools and organisations on mental wellness, social media, positive body image, first impressions and healthy eating (I have a nutrition diploma) health, beauty, lifechange and personal image and style. (I was a celebrity stylist for A list stars for 30 years) .

Nesse and I are going to be chatting together at 10am tomorrow –
and answering your questions on any subjects you ask us:
From menopause to men,
Healthy diet or current lifestyle dilemmas
And
pilates to positivity.
… and more.. .
before Nesse and I host a Zoom fun Pilates class the following Monday for anyone who is age 50 plus and would still like to keep fit. .
Look forward to 10am tomorrow.
A date for your diaries.

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

Happy Chinese New Year The Year of the Rat

“Gong hei fat choy” in Chinese translates to:
“Wishing you great happiness and prosperity.”

Wearing the colour red symbolises luck, joy, vitality, celebration and good fortune in Chinese culture.

May all your wishes, hopes and dreams come true for you this new year.

I continue on with my own regular skin care routine of BDR facial products together with an occasional BDR medical grade facial

I continue on with my own regular skin care routine of BDR facial products together with an occasional BDR medical grade facial as it helps my 65- year old ageing skin feel plumped and refreshed without the intervention -yet- of any non- surgical tweaks.
.
But I do like to see what is going on the future of tweakments often via the lovely @alicehartdavis
In this way I can give an unbiased opinion when asked by my lifestyle clients.
.
I'm a bit of a coward and personally not a great fan of any needles- blood tests or cosmetic  however... if you aren't too squeamish watch this series of video clips I filmed this week ( through half-closed fingers ) at Cosmesurge - Harley st London.
.
These are a few options of tweaks you could do - if you so wished- for your hands, your nose, and a brow lift. .
You can see in the video clips the Ellanse injections in both the hands and temples.
And a brow thread lift. 
On both you can see the significant improvement before and after on the two sides of the lady's hands and face. 
These procedures can go on showing improvement for up to 3 months and can last for up to 3 years as the collagen re- building kicks in ( i hope I'm correct in this )?
.
It is always important if you are to have any of these tweaks that you choose a top aesthetician, surgeon and clinic.
Not a back room in some local beauty salon. 
All procedures do have an element of risk.
