What you wear should bring you joy and make you feel good.
Wearing colour does for me..

Difficult to know what to wear when the weather changes from hot and muggy to cold and rain and you’re sitting outside the restaurant for dinner

The way forward seems to be mixing Summer and Winter wardrobes.

Chanel-style cotton rib dress from Zara (Summer 2018) with vintage leather jacket. .
Photo seems to be slightly out of focus. Think the photographer may have had one drink too many

Been off grid for a week as I dropped my phone and the screen broke even with all bumpers and protection

£220 later for Samsung S9+ screen/whole frame replacement ( and that was one of the cheaper quotes) I'm now catching up.

So...
Never too old to love a live music gig..
Especially when it's a mother and daughter girls night out. Fleetwood Mac at Wembley.

Every so often we all need a digital detox

Every so often we all need a digital detox.
.
Even if we don't feel or have social media comparison anxiety, we can still feel a need to post daily so we don't lose followers, and our followers don't lose interest.
.
So if I don't post every day, please don't get bored and disappear. .
My Instafeed is real, not filtered, hoping to inspire, and may not always be real time as I'm not out every day and night. .
I'm often in many evenings on my own watching TV. My life can even be quite boring, mundane and even lonely. .
That is something that most people would not want to admit on their social media.
.
I'm currently in the middle of writing a novel which is nearly finished, and that requires huge discipline, no distractions, sitting at my laptop with all emails and social media switched off.
.
So today I've posted a bare-faced, no-make-up  selfie pic of my 64 year old me. Just as I am. No filters. This is me. .

It’s pouring with rain today but yesterday was beautiful and all that was needed for the best sun protection was a big floppy hat, sunglasses and Altruist factor 50 sunscreen for the face, and Altruist factor 30 for the body as seen with @misslucy_lou

Altruist was developed to be both effective in protection and affordable by a dermatologist and skin cancer specialist. Affordable - so we all buy and use our sun protection products more. .
I love the ethos of this brand. Not only is it less expensive than most of the other big brands out there but also % of every tube sold goes to charity to help Albino kids.

Good morning

Good morning. Good Friday

My happy place by the sea with dogs @misslucy_lou and family for Easter weekend.
.
This picture was taken by my daughter on our morning dog walk after 4 days of the 5 day Prolon intermittent fast-mimicking 1000 calorie a day diet plan. My daughter commented I was looking significantly slimmer. I don't know how much weight I've lost as I prefer to not weigh as I don't believe obsessing with weight or calories is a healthy mindset.
.
The scientifically researched mix of vitamin supplements together with the packeted vegan soups, nut and cocoa bars and fresh olives were actually really tasty and quite easy to manage for 5 days without feeling faint or too hungry or deprived. I do like my food.  .
Prolon do caution no exercise during this period, however I did have a yoga class and dog walks and was fine. .
Intermittent fasting is how I live day to day always leaving 12 hours after my last meal to my first of the following day. And when I can, 2 consecutive days a week, leaving 16-18 hours overnight ( an early supper, no breakfast, late lunch) . Not difficult. .
So these 5 days mimicked this way of eating but with reduced calorific intake. Much the same as the Michael Mosely 1000 cal a day eating plan for helping to reverse type 2 diabetes.
.
Happy Easter everyone.
I'm now looking forward to family Easter weekend with proper meals which are still healthy and also a bite or two or three of a dark chocolate Easter egg.

Trying to sit up as tall as possible whilst keeping the back as straight as possible too.
