Morning PT HIIT workout

Morning PT HIIT workout. 
Monday morning training with a mix of boxing, agility and core exercises.

As you can see from the video clip I'm not the best in fast side to side movements due to past injury restrictions and an element of caution!
(hip resurface and torn glute med 3 years ago,  and injured knee ligaments this March) 
However at 63 I am grateful to be fit and able to do everything I want to do from pilates and dance classes to horse riding,and paddleboarding. .

Sweaty and definitely no filters

Sweaty and definitely no filters.

Thank you @jamiebuckley5234 for the best dance fitness class ever with the funniest running commentary.
Laughter and dance are the best feelgood combination even in tropical temperatures and no aircon as the class is in the local community centre.

Harder than it looks! Early morning boxing training and HIIT workout

Harder than it looks! 
Early morning boxing training and HIIT workout.

Much easier to box with a trainer and pads than it is with this boxing practice machine that swings right back at you.

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)

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. .

Before and after men’s makeup makeover trial

Before and after men's makeup makeover trial.

I love my work so much when it makes people feel good about themselves. My work is all about being the best version of you that you can be.  Whether I'm helping clients with their wardrobe, colours, body image and self-confidence, body shape, first impressions, body language, healthy diet and nutrition, exercise, make up for women, makeup for men and more.

Eyebrows and eyebrow shaping are so important and make so much difference to your face.  I tweezed first to shape and then extended and added missing brow hairs. I covered the beard and uneven skin tones, and shaded cheekbones with a contour kit. .
