2nd guest speaker talk this week For Mental Health Week The topic is Body Image and Social Media For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke

2nd guest speaker talk this week
For 
Mental Health Week 
The topic is
Body Image and Social Media 
For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke.
.
I love doing these speaker talks for organisations or schools.
If I can inspire or change the mindset even of just a small percentage of my audience it's all worth while.
.
I want both women and men to aspire to be their unique best selves, to not aspire to be like the images that they perceive to be the reality on Instagram social media posts.
.
I'm wearing:
A current season £29.00 Zara dress.
I replaced the plastic red belt it came with, with a Gucci one.  I like to mix affordable High street with occasional Designer accessories.
Orange ballet shoes Zara past season.

Good morning Sunday

Good morning Sunday.
.
A makeup free face no filters. .
Over the last month I had 5 x BDR facials at the lovely Elena's Fulham aesthetics beauty clinic Elenique.
.
I've been using the BDR products regularly every day. Cleanser, toner, 2 x serums and a moisturiser. Seemed a lot of products to use twice a day at the beginning as I'm all about speed as never have time to faff around, but 
I' ve got used to the routine now and even managed to fit an exfoliation in one evening too. .
My skin tone seems improved, maybe a bit firmer and plumper, still have wrinkles but I wasn't hoping for a miracle. 
.
10 facials apparently is the best for optimum results with occasional monthly maintenance one after that.
.

Still keeping supple at age 64

Still keeping supple at age 64.
.
Not necessarily the most flattering position but hey... at least the body is still mobile, even with the left hip re-surfaced a few years ago and various other injuries.
.
For my fitness regime I try to do Pilates, mat or reformer, 3 times a week. Anything else is in addition or if I can't get to a Pilates class.
.
My Pilates posts aren't always real time so don't believe I am a fitness fanatic and exercising every single day - I'm not! .
If I'm in the Isle of Wight I love to horse ride on the beach.
.
I also do occasional dance classes which can help memory as well as fitness, as  concentration is needed to remember routines.
.
Boxing mixed with HIIT in the gym is great for cardio and fat burning and also concentration as I dont want to be punched on the nose

Mother and daughter reformer Pilates

Mother and daughter reformer Pilates.
She's the one further away obvs

This exercise is for the lower abs, core, glutes and also arms. .
To raise the intensity of the exercise the legs can be scissored lower just as my daughter is doing.

Chatting about age- and being real on BBC5live at 10.50am this morning with Emma Barnett.
.
Why I no longer feel the need to fib about my age even when I reach another milestone birthday. Looking in the mirror each morning isn't always the best as i still feel like my younger self inside but the mirror tells a different story.
.
When we were in our teens or twenties,  we aged ourselves up to appear more wordly and maybe to be taken more seriously by those older than us especially for career advancement.
.
However when we reached our 40s and onwards we fibbed and lopped years off to remain as long as possible in the previous decade.
.
Now that we look after ourselves better with a healthy lifestyle and diet, nutrition knowledge, fitness and beauty regimes, we can look our best and be proud of how we look naturally whatever our age.
.
I'm proud to look the way I do in my 60s.
.
Of course I would like to look like I did when I was in my 20s but I'll settle for being the best version of how I am now.
.
I've had amazing life experiences in my 60plus years and two wonderful children. 
Ive no need to fib any longer.
.
I want to inspire women of all ages.
