Blonde again! with my wonderful very pregnant colourist

Blonde again! with my wonderful very pregnant colourist. 
Hoping that the baby doesn't come early!  @chanelnott 
As we get older the creamy tones of blonde hair are so important as hair colour should compliment, brighten and enhance your facial skin tones. .

A selection of my favourite makeup brushes and products from @primark

A selection of my favourite makeup brushes and products from @primark.beauty .

I was browsing in Primark Oxford st and checked out their new beauty products which apparently have had a recent significent financial investment. 
I was really impressed with their makeup brushes which I then bought for a transgender MTF client so she could experiment with her newly learnt makeup application techiques, taught by me, with these brilliant inexpensive makeup tools.

The brush prices ranged from £1-£2.50 and were excellent in both texture and balance between softness and firmness for application and blending away.

The key to a good make application is blending and blending away. 
Its not all about countouring as seen in so many airbrushed insta MUA posts. 
It's so important to be able to blend away,  especially for a trans girl who may still be covering her remaining beard growth during her laser/electrolysis/hormone treatments with layers of concealer products,  foundation and powdering to set.

However blending away is important for all girls whether it's eyeshadow, foundation, concealer or blusher.
.
.

The brushes shown here include double ended brushes:
Angled eyebrow brush
Eyeshadow and concealer brush
Apply and blend brush 
Foundation and concealer brush
Powder and finish brush 
And
Blender sponge
Mattifying powder
And an artist palette of eyeshadows.

Great makeup tools for starting out.
Total £29! ( i doubled up on some of the brushes for my client)

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx.

My last haircut till September. My hairdresser Andy's client sitting next to me at the salon said she had dress envy. So sharing with you that my white lace dress came from Zara last summer and was on sale too. 
Btw I've always found that for both myself and often for my lady clients age 60plus shorter haircuts that frame the face, often at jawline length, can act as an instant facelift helping us look 10 years younger.

My healthy version of the ” full English” breakfast

My healthy version of the " full English" breakfast.

Complex carbs take longer to digest than simple carbs helping you to feel fuller longer with less blood sugar spikes keeping your energy levels constant. Especially when you got up to work at 5.30am and feel like you've had a whole day by midday! 
2 organic eggs (protein) fried in Waitrose bought organic butter, ( good fats) organic multigrain and wholewheat bread ( complex carbs) from the local bakery.
Streaky Duchy of Cornwall free range bacon ( protein)
Wilted spinach ( great spurce of iron)
Avocado (oddly it's a fruit and is also full of good fats )
Some fat in your diet is good for you and also helps you feel fuller longer. .

On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis

On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis. Chatting to Jim on how to do hot Summer dressing in the office workplace. Especially if you are client facing. 
How to stay cool but still look appropriate for your company brand and ethos.  No flip flops, bra straps, etc.
However if you work within the media or for a young IT or techi company then anything goes. @bbcradiolondon

Realise your dreams

Realise your dreams.

Have you seen the movie "The Book Club"? Funny and so pertinent to so many women over 50.
Often we lose who we were, whilst caring for our familes, being too busy, or feeling guilty. 
It's never too late to start over and realise your dreams..
You only have one life! .

Healthy lifestyle tips

Healthy lifestyle tips.

Here are 5 tips for a good digestive system and improved gut health which is the key to your general optimum health and well being.

I subsitute oatcakes for bread when I'm craving a healthy carb fix,  especially eaten with unpasteurized cheese (a healthy gut likes unpasteurised cheese and fermented foods as friendly bacteria and probiotics keep your microbiome happy and healthy). .

Endermology

Endermology.

When legs feel and look heavy,  Endermology can help their appearance whilst you are on your weightloss regime and body transformation journey. 
Yes those are my legs...and this treatment helps me a lot.

It's a roller which is used over your body (whilst you wear a special body stocking). The action of the machine helps lymphatic drainage ( in fact cancer treatment patients have this treatment too to help their lymph drainage) 
It helps reduce cellulite, skin elasticity, skin tone and skin quality. 
A couple of sessions a week over a few months and then an occasional maintenance one definitely makes a difference.

Friday’s veggie brunch

Friday's veggie brunch.

Midday today, 16 hours after yesterday evening's last meal at 8pm.  The 16hour fasting time gives the gut and body time to have a break from digesting food and if continued 2 days consecutively can help weight loss, gut health and overall wellbeing.
