Sometimes we all need to focus on ourselves with a little self-care when life has been super-stressful.

Sometimes we all need to focus on ourselves with a little self-care when life has been super-stressful. Especially at this time of the year.
.
My go-to treat is the rejuvenating non- invasive BDR facial.
Administered this time by Veni- the owner of 
@le_boutique_spa in London NW1.  She was excellent and very professional in her attention to detail. Many of her clients are French which says a lot about how good she is.  I' ve always found that French women are especially particular about their beauty regimes.
.
My no-makeup, bad hair selfie- with newly glowing skin was taken straight after the facial.
I'm with Veni who is her own best advertisement as an aesthetic clinician. .
Before the Summer I had my first four BDR facials at the also excellent @eleniqueskinclinic in Fulham.  I like trying out various beauty salons and clinics which have been recommended to me. These initial treatments made a significant difference to my skin quality, deep wrinkles and sun-damage pigmentation.
.
The facial includes 
peel+ dermabrasion 
Microneedles + serum
Massage + LED

Makes you feel so much better.

Every so often we all need a digital detox. . Even if we don’t feel or have social media comparison

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. .

Last day Day #7 @grayshottspa

Last day
Day @grayshottspa .
First day in the gym with personal trainer John.
You will see my efforts in future posts...
A mix of HIIT and strengthening exercises particularly for the quads.
The glutes and hamstrings and core and are working well together from my pilates fitness..
.
And...
.
What was it that French man Jann Moix wrote today about women over 50 being too old to love? And that women in their 20s are the only ones worth dating.
Well I'm 64 and still going strong so he's talking a load of old tosh.

Blondes have more fun! Blonde highlights sorted again with thanks to my lovely @chanelnott @chelseagreensalon

The tonal colour of your hair can lift and illuminate your face. 
Or can drain if wrong.
It's so important to make sure your blonde tones do work for you. 
It's not about how blonde you are. Creamy tones are best. Never brassy or yellow.
.
Today I'm wearing:
Snakeskin jeans this season.
Cashmere sweater #M&S last year
Studded trainers last year
Westie x bichon @misslucy_lou 9 years old! .
