Age is just a number!

Age is just a number!
.
Here is my 96 year old auntie,
me age 64, 
and @misslucy_lou The Westie x Bichon dog. .
Women of all ages can still be naturally beautiful, with no filters applied to enhance or manipulate.
.
Beauty comes from within and shines out when you're happy in your own skin, together with confidence, positivity and positive body language. .
Being fake isn't beautiful.
Being real is. 
Be the best you can be in your real life.
.
Love yourself and believe you are worth it.
.
Embrace all life has to offer and grab it with both hands and be grateful for everything you have. My 96 year old auntie does and is the funniest and most irreverent person I know.
And she still likes to dress stylishly and glamorously whenever she goes out, always with makeup and definitely lipstick.

#20yearchallenge

.
Appreciate your life and each day you're here. You never know what tomorrow brings.
.
Be grateful for your good health, your happiness, your family, and your 'inner' beauty whatever age,  body shape or size you are. .
We are all different and unique and that's what makes each and everyone special.
.
My photo was from 20 years ago ( so I must have been maybe in my early 40's as I'm now 64.  This was before filters and apps, but beautifully and flatteringly lit by the photographer. .
I know I didn't appreciate how I looked then and was certainly more critical of myself then than I am now in my old age. .
We all get older and should grow old gracefully or disgracefully if you prefer, whilst being your own person and not caring what others say or how they judge you- especially through social media. .

Last day Day #7 @grayshottspa

Last day
Day @grayshottspa .
First day in the gym with personal trainer John.
You will see my efforts in future posts...
A mix of HIIT and strengthening exercises particularly for the quads.
The glutes and hamstrings and core and are working well together from my pilates fitness..
.
And...
.
What was it that French man Jann Moix wrote today about women over 50 being too old to love? And that women in their 20s are the only ones worth dating.
Well I'm 64 and still going strong so he's talking a load of old tosh.

Back in day

Back in day.....
Circa 1970s
Wearing Kenzo.
.

It's a shame that our younger selves don't appreciate or realise how good we look at the time and beat ourselves up wanting to be an improved version. Slimmer, curvier, longer legs, bigger boobs etc etc.
.
Love yourself and love what you see in the mirror as you are now.
Accept your imperfections. They are what make you unique. .
Be confident in who you are. 
Confidence is sexy.

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places.
.
When life offers you an opportunity outside your comfort zone seize it with both hands and go for it.
.
I have just done this. .
Many of my age would not. I'm 64.  They would say " You're brave, I wouldn't do this, but well done." .
Watch this space. .
I am going to be part of an exciting campaign that is something I would never have considered doing a few years ago. .
I'm braver now and I have to walk the walk and talk the talk if I am going to inspire and bang on about positive body image, confidence and being yourself whatever age, shape or size you are with no filters. .
Be bold. Be brave. Be you.
