Feeling a Bohemian vibe wearing this new Zara dress

Feeling a Bohemian vibe wearing this new Zara dress. 
.
I could be pregnant with twins under it - but that would be a miracle -  -  or hiding any number of things under its volumes of fabric.
.
It's not a sexy dress or a flattering dress for anyone with boobs as it hangs straight from them - but it's cool and airy with a fun print and vibrant colours that bring joy to the wearer. 
.
Is it too young a dress to wear at the age of 66?  Who cares - I am enjoying wearing it.
.
When we enjoy and feel good wearing a particular item of clothing - we as women - feel confident, positive and empowered.
.
This is a happy dress.

All gowned and masked up and at last my new 2021 haircut.

With the talented @darrenfowlerhair London whom I recommend all my 1-2-1 personal makeover and clients to go to. 
He's great with all sorts of hair - fine, thin, curly, thick etc and also understanding the needs of the very diverse clients I send him.

Been off social media for the last few weeks and still will be, until I finish the final edit of my first novel which I started last year

My current office is in the garden, wearing noise cancelling headphones (noisy neighbours, crying kids, and builders and building works everywhere).

These are my video clip edits of the sights and sounds of mother nature that have helped my mental wellness and brought me joy over this last week of my morning walks

I haven’t added any commentary or music as the sounds of the birds and water were so lovely.

Enjoy

Found my perfect spot at home to do more ‘live’ chats

Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
@nesseinlondon (Fitness/nutrition/sarcasm)
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old.
.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil – adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there’s another time of the day you would prefer.
Maybe evening – 6pm – better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

(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.
