“You look good for your age”

"You look good for your age" .
But what does age 64 look like?....
.
In the newspaper today the headline is "1 in 3 Britons admit they are guilty of ageism"

Maybe it's more how you feel about yourself....
.
This morning's swim in the sea made me feel good... both mentally and physically.

Good morning Sunday

Good morning Sunday.
.
A makeup free face no filters. .
Over the last month I had 5 x BDR facials at the lovely Elena's Fulham aesthetics beauty clinic Elenique.
.
I've been using the BDR products regularly every day. Cleanser, toner, 2 x serums and a moisturiser. Seemed a lot of products to use twice a day at the beginning as I'm all about speed as never have time to faff around, but 
I' ve got used to the routine now and even managed to fit an exfoliation in one evening too. .
My skin tone seems improved, maybe a bit firmer and plumper, still have wrinkles but I wasn't hoping for a miracle. 
.
10 facials apparently is the best for optimum results with occasional monthly maintenance one after that.

Wearing colour can fill you with joy and sometimes you may feel drawn to a particular colour

Wearing colour can fill you with joy and sometimes you may feel drawn to a particular colour.
Today it's a blue day. .
Everything I'm wearing is from the High street- a mix of current and past seasons.
I like to mix up affordable High street fashion with the odd designer accessory.
.
Furry gilet Joseph.
Blue animal print t-shirt M&S
Leather look jeans Zara
Ankle boots New Look 
Belt Gucci

Girls in pearls

Girls in pearls.
.
Saturday was a sad day as it was the memorial of a good friend who was such a special person.
.
The dress code was glam and colourful as the lunch party was to celebrate her life.
.
And so it was an orange and pearls day.
.
Everyone turned up wearing wonderfully bright and vibrant colours as she would have liked us to.
.
Life is so short and often so cruelly and abruptly ended, that we should make the most of every day that we are here.
.
.
Orange silk shirt from Zara 2017 season.
Versace-esque print pleated silk skirt from Zara Summer 2018 
Pearls from when I was 18 years old.
.
The collection of clothes in my eclectic wardrobe go back years and all get mixed and matched each season in brand new ways. .

These were 2 newspaper headlines today from one of the world's most influential trend forecasters.
.
I used to fib about my age, especially as I worked in the media and on TV. I remained 37 years old for years into my 40s.
.
However now I'm 64 I'm proud to acknowledge and tell my actual age.
I keep fit and healthy and want to inspire women of all ages.
.
This selfie with no filters was from June 2018, last Summer,  when I was on my way to the Isle of Wight music festival. .

Sometimes when you’ve been ill in bed with the worst flu for 5 days, then getting dressed in a vibrant colour and venturing out into the world and meeting friends just for a couple of hours can be the best recovery tonic medicine

It's always fun to reinvent an outfit with different accessories.  In this case a vintage 1980's studded corset belt that came from Browns South Molton st.
