9 years ago when I was guest presenter for QVC TV shopping channel for @bobmackie fashion. .
I would show how clothes can flatter and sculpt your body shape to attract the eye to your best bits and detract from those you like least.
.
Dressing cleverly is all about creating an illusion whatever your body shape.
.
Everyone can dress to be the best versions of themselves with no need to use apps or filters on their social media posts.
.
No celebrity I have ever dressed in all my 30 years as a celebrity stylist has had a perfect body.  We are all unique and should embrace our own individuality. .

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.

Birthday haircut With my fave hairdresser @andysmith_stylist Thankyou

Birthday haircut 
With my fave hairdresser 
@andysmith_stylist 
Thankyou.
.
Rejuvenated with my first haircut for 3 months after the Summer.
A good haircut is better than any new dress or shoes.
Makes you feel so much better.

Age 64.
.
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.

Sometime around the year 2000.  When my hair was thicker and I could wear it longer. .
We never appreciate what we have or how we look at the time until we look back. Then it's too late. . .

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.
