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 Monday

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 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.

Think of one word to describe

Think of one word to describe ......
"How you see yourself.
And then,
"How you think others see you.
"How you'd like others to see you."
.
Do your three answers match? 
They rarely do......
