Well done on raising so many thousands of £s auctioning the controversial one shoulder dress for your charity @girlguiding as a result of - wearing a dress that had slipped off the shoulder and was deemed inapropriate in the House of Commons. .
It's easy to have clothing malfunctions and indeed my own @zara top in the photo can be worn in all ways - exposing shoulders or not.
.
Women are continuously judged and often more harshly by other women than by men. .
My lifestyle consultancy takes me into organisations where women prefer to often dress androgynously- in trousers- in black- to not be noticed for what they wear- but only for the excellent job they do.
.
I also speak in schools- where teenage girls feel the need to look perfect- especially on their social media- affecting their mental health.
.
I hope my own social media feed, that is never filtered,  inspires and can show women - young and old - that we can all be individual. Embracing our quirks and flaws make each of us unique and special.  No celebrity I have ever dressed had a perfect body or flawless face in my past 30 year career as a celebrity stylist. .
We shouldn't be afraid to wear what we feel comfortable in- however- if we work in an organisation and are customer facing,  then we are the face of the brand and should dress accordingly. .
Be true to yourself, don't compare and don't let the judgement of others break you. .

Sometimes it’s a specs day

Sometimes it's a specs day. .
If you wear contact lenses it's good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
.
I've worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night. 
I felt 'less than' in my specs- not confident, not sexy - not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours. 
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing-  not an embarrassing encumbrance.

A lasting close friendship of over 30 years is one where you don’t see each other for months, often even years, and then pick up again as though no time has passed at all

With my fave photographer friend,  @nickyjohnston having the best Indian dinner at the new restaurant 1947, London. .
It's definitely not the same price or the same food as your local ordinary Indian takeaway - It's an out of the ordinary special treat night out.

Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Chilling with @missmollysmusings 
After a Qi Gong class.
.
Qi Gong is a centurires-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.
.
I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic. .

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. .
