But often also on 
interiors. .
This is the brilliant new Karndean flooring in the top floor of this Fulham house.
I am so impressed with it as it really does look and feel exactly like wood. .
It's from the Karndean Korlock range and the colour is Texas White Ash.  It has accoustic foam backing for soundproofing and is especially good for top floor bedrooms and apartments. .
I' ve always been an engineered wood flooring advocate for my interiors styling clients until now.  I think I may just have had my head turned by Karndean. 
.
The photos are of the master bedroom and dressing room.

Our bodies change as we grow older

Our bodies change as we grow older.
Don't compare yourself to others. 
Or even to how you used to be.
Be yourself.
Be proud of how you are now.
No one is perfect.
Embrace your flaws. They are what make you 'you'.
Love what you see in the mirror.
Don't filter your photos.
Be real.
Be you.

Its important to stay flexible as you grow older.
.
Not necessarily as flexible as myself as I have hyper-mobility which is not a good thing so I have to be careful to not over-stretch.
Especially as I had a hip resurface ( like Andy Murray) a few years ago.
.
However exercising, stretching and moving every day, even if its just a 20 min dog walk will make a difference to your body, how you feel and also your mental health.

Final day of my 5 day fast-mimicking Prolon diet

Final day of my 5 day fast-mimicking Prolon diet.
.
From tomorrow, I will be eating predominantly vegetables and slowly re-introducing protein with fish and chicken back into my daily diet.
.
As my 65th birthday approaches,  I felt it increasingly important to take stock of my health, returning to healthy eating and regular exercise as it had all gone pear-shaped during the Summer.
.
Friends say to me "but you look fine as you are" you don't need to lose weight" but visceral fat ( the internal fat around your organs can also be inside a slim or even skinny person.  Also we all know that to look good we need to FEEL good as well.
.
Visceral fat is a type of body fat that can’t be pinched or seen with the naked eye, and it surrounds vital organs, including the liver, pancreas and kidneys. Keeping levels of visceral fat can reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, the onset of type 2 diabetes and many other illnesses.

The two items I couldn’t live without in the kitchen this Summer were: My @zerowateruk filter jug to filter my tap water making it taste as good as the bottled water I used to buy daily, and also in my opinion filtering more efficiently than other filter jug brands

And
My Lavazza coffee machine for my morning expressos and guests' capuccinos.
.
What are your kitchen must haves? .
Btw...
It's always good to drink a glass of water together with every cup of coffee.
Coffee is a diuretic.
When diuretics flush away sodium, the body also flushes away water, dehydrating the body. .

To take up paddleboarding.
.
This was the first day after the whole of this Summer that we took out the paddle board.
.
Very wobbly in spite of core strengthening pilates classes twice a week throughout the Summer and a 121 boxing session each week.
.
Maybe it was the volume of food consumed over the last few weeks 
Or
@misslucy_lou pacing up and down the board. .

Bank holiday weekend, treats allowed – with no guilt attached

Lobster and chips @theboathousesteephillcove

When it's been carb-fest day then a minimum of twelve hours, ideally sixteen - eighteen hours before you eat again will give your digestive system a chance to rest and process all the food.

Tomorrow is another day.

When you get up at 6

When you get up at 6.00am in the morning for a 7am Pilates reformer class...... .
.
.
Upper body strength exercises have always been the most difficult ones for me.  Improvement is slowly happening and pikes, planks and a variety of shoulder girdle and arm exercises are becoming less of a struggle the longer I persevere.
.
Using core, glutes, lower abs and in fact all body to support and control. .
