Reformer Pilates

For those who have only ever practised mat-based Pilates classes, I am going to regularly demo together with @lukemeessmann @absolutestudios how Reformer pilates exercises can be tailored to every ability- beginner or expert.
.
Today’s exercises in video clips 2 and 3 are the basic first and then the more advanced variation. . .

Road-testing the Body Ballancer treatment at the Private Clinic, Harley st, London

.
You can see me in my video clip wearing the inflating Body Ballancer compression garment during the 45 min treatment session.
(Definitely not looking my most glam today-) .
The gentle, rhythmic inflating action felt relaxing as it gave my body- from toes to tum- a circulation-boosting lymphatic drainage massage.
.
This can improve the appearance of cellulite and skin quality, reduce bloating and help fluid retention, even taking you down a dress size before a red carpet event. .
It can be used after sport to help muscle recovery by eliminating toxins more speedily through the improved lymphatic drainage system. .
It’s the go-to body contouring treatment for many celebrities.
.
Due also to the improvement of increased oxygenated blood flow, this treatment can also help speed up healing and reduce inflammation after any fat-freezing, laser, or ultrasound liposculpture treatments. .
I have tried over the years – manual lymphatic drainage massages and Endermology treatments to help improve cellulite, and the Universal Contour Bodywrap.
but the Body Ballancer treatment is much more pleasant and relaxing and you don’t even have to undress. .

Don't base your self-worth on others' online perceptions of you.

9 years ago when I was guest presenter for QVC TV shopping channel for @bobmackie fashion.

9 years ago when I was guest presenter for QVC TV shopping channel for @bobmackie fashion. .
I would show how clothes can flatter and sculpt your body shape to attract the eye to your best bits and detract from those you like least.
.
Dressing cleverly is all about creating an illusion whatever your body shape.
.
Everyone can dress to be the best versions of themselves with no need to use apps or filters on their social media posts.
.
No celebrity I have ever dressed in all my 30 years as a celebrity stylist has had a perfect body.  We are all unique and should embrace our own individuality. .

Good morning Monday.
Here's to a great week.
.
I'm wearing:
Zara dress (this season £19)!
And 
Debenhams Jacket (2018)
John Lewis Valentino Rockstud look-alike shoes (2018)
Whole outfit under £100 
.
Btw...
To all who look at others' Instaposts wishing that your life is as glamorous, colourful, fun, full of socialising and excitement - 
Most people's are not, Including my own. .
I'm not out every night, nor am I at the gym everyday. .
My posts are simply the parts of my life that I hope are interesting.
.
I hope to inspire with lifestyle tips of fashion, style, fitness, nutrition, health and beauty as a 64 year old woman with no filters or editing to show that you can be active, fit and enjoy life to the full whatever age you are. .

2nd guest speaker talk this week For Mental Health Week

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.
.
