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.

My personal Covid lockdown story out this week ( written by myself) on the online website www

My personal Covid lockdown story out this week ( written by myself) on the online website www.femalefirst.co.uk-  in the books and authors section.
.
How my debut novel "Secrets in the Dark" came to be finished, edited and published as a result of being ill with the virus and in self- isolation from my family and friends from March onwards.
.
It just goes to show that even when faced with challenging circumstances always remain positive and never give up. 
.
It's never too late to start a new career even at age 65.

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).

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden Is the way to go

I cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly.
I’ve just had my second appointment with her.

She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.

Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart.
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.

It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.

It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL – good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.

Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.

It even checks for cancer markers.

Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.

The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180.

Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Qi Gong is a centuries-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.

I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic.

Small steps. . When life is tough don't give up.

Small steps.
.
When life is tough don't give up.
It's easy in January to make all those unrealistic  resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything........
.
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin  on a positive note.
.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
.
Be the master of your own destiny.
