Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago

Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago. Maybe I was around age 26.....
.
Think the dress code may have been tarts and vicars! 
I'm obviously not the vicar.

Today’s Stripes

Today's Stripes. 
Sloppy, Sunday comfy dressing. .
My posts are always non-filtered and exactly how I look that day. .
It shouldn't be necessary to filter, Facetune, or create a social media enhanced perfect version of yourself. .
NO celebrity or client I have ever styled or dressed for the Red Carpet has had a perfect body or skin.  You can always aspire to be the best version of yourself but your imperfections are what make you unique.
.
Be confident enough in your own self-image and body-image to not judge or compare yourself to others, especially others' fitered Instagram posts. They're not real.
.
Tshirt dress: Primark
Sweater: Zadig and Voltaire 
Metallic trainers: Superga
Specs: People

This post on eating disorders ( thank you to @jayeazoff ) has many of the thoughts that I include in my UK school talks to kids ranging from age 7-17 and also their parents

This post on eating disorders ( thank you to @jayeazoff ) has many of the thoughts that I include in my UK school talks to kids ranging from age 7-17 and also their parents.
.
My talks include social media-the positives and negatives, body image, comparison anxieties, bullying and exclusion, mental health and all issues to do with feeling good about yourself. .
I  was a celebrity stylist for over 30 years and now work with private and corporate clients with lifestyle, image and life change and have seen how the relationship with food and eating habits can affect people's lives, their mental health and well-being. .
I took a nutrition degree over the last few years to add to my expertise and knowledge of how to help my clients with a healthy balanced lifestyle. 
I want my clients to be the best versions of themselves they can be. .

#Tbt Me age 15 and age 28

Me age 15 and age 28.
.
.
These photos are pre-social media when there were no filters on photos and no pressures to look a certain way. .
Of course there were those who were skinny too and those who were fat but no-one judged or had anywhere to post photos that weren't real. The only place to post a photo was in a personal photo album which stayed in your living room. .

No-one exercised, worked out or went to gyms in the same 'addicted to fitness' way so our bodies were a different shape and less toned than gym bodies of nowadays. .
Maybe we did ballet or horse riding or swam or did some form of sport at school and beyond but only for our personal enjoyment. Not with the same end goals to have the perfect Instagram body. .
We didn't compare or judge. 
No pressures to look a certain way.
We were happier and more confident in our body image then. 
Free to be who we were. .

As seen in Mail on Sunday YOU Magazine. "21st Century problems? There's a mentor for that....."
Modern living may be throwing up dilemmas we've never faced before-but theres a new breed of therapist rising to the challenge. And they're just a click away.
The Confidence Coach...That's me..

It's free to message or call me for an initial phone chat to see if I can help you to become the best version of you that you can be. .

When I was styling celebrities, I styled Serena Williams when she was only 17

When I was styling celebrities, I styled Serena Williams when she was only 17.

I styled Serena in Berlin, Germany during the women's WTA tour.  She is wearing an Escada dress and BVlgari diamonds worth around £60,000. We had a security guard to look after us and the diamonds. .

Wednesday pilates

Wednesday pilates.

Reformer exercise for posture, control,  balance and flexibility.
The control needed to stabilise and move the reformer slowly in and out smoothly engages so many muscles.
Core, tummy, glutes, hamstrings, abductors, calf muscles....
