When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden Is the way to go

I cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly.
I’ve just had my second appointment with her.

She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.

Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart.
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.

It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.

It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL – good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.

Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.

It even checks for cancer markers.

Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.

The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180.

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.

Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.

Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.
.
The thing that really stood out to me was how different the fabrics were that we wore then to now.
Much more rigid and flexible and quite bulky.
.
These video clips include:
The Daisy dress up doll ( I remember I had one of the cut out and paste books of these as a child.)!
1960s sportswear Quant style 
The mini Quant wore to collect her OBE
The jersey dress ( the first time stretchy jersey had been used as a clothing fabric) 
The Quant collection of everything from tights to sunglasses to makeup
The cape 
Dresses with matching frilly pants
The journey of the mini from knee to very short.

The Mary Quant retrospective at the V&A museum.

The Mary Quant retrospective at the V&A museum. 
The first of 2 posts of 10 video clips and photos.
Such an iconic designer that not only created fashion history in the 1960's but changed how girls dressed-no longer like their mothers.
Fashion was suddenly fun.
Quant personified swinging London and the Kings Road Chelsea .

This is an absolutely must-see panto with Julian Clary, Dawn French, Nigel Havers, Flavia and Vincent from Strictly, Paul Zerdin ventriloquist and the campest most lavish most extravagant over the top costumes you have ever seen! 
Julian Clary doesn't have a single line that doesn't have a double meaning and Dawn French is brilliant as the wicked witch.

The first photo of me is the before the treatment

The first photo of me is the before the treatment.
The last photo in this series of video clips and pics is the after treatments.
.
Thank you @facegym for my lovely treatment
.
My treatments shown here in my video clips are a signature electrical and an cryo oxygen.
.
The session included:
a rigorous lifting manual massage, then a ball massage,  then the electrical current which very strong and definitely not relaxing, then a gentle massage with a comb type probe and then with a piece of jade and finally the oxygen cryo.
.
My face now definitely has more definition after the treatment and my skin looks plumped and glowing. .
I would love to be able to treat my face and skin to this facial workout more regularly.
.
I like to look good for my age without resorting to surgery, botox or fillers.  This treatment is definitely fabulous.
.
These video clip have no filters.

#tbfriday This time last year! Looking forward to skating again @natural_history_museum skating rink London

This time last year!
Looking forward to skating again @natural_history_museum skating rink London.
.
It's such fun and a good cardio, core and glute workout. You need to use your core together with your glutes for balance, strength and to keep upright.
.
I do look quite serious but I'm properly concentrating on not only trying not to fall over myself but also on not knocking over any small children or even adults skating around holding onto their penguins for support.
.
Have a good Friday! What are you doing that's out of your comfort zone this weekend? .
