Why? – If no one is going to see me for the next few weeks.
It’s for myself and makes me feel good.
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).
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.
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
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well

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.
