Bank holiday weekend, treats allowed – with no guilt attached

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.

talkRADIO with Steph & Dom

Talking about getting ready and packing for your Summer holidays. Everything from beauty to style and if you are like myself, how we girls like to pack for eventualities, those what-if moments, often preparing days or even weeks in advance. I’ve found that most men can’t understand this as they often simply throw a small bag together on the morning of departure.

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.
