is Spain’s most popular skin treatment, apparently even used regularly by the Queen of Spain.
.
After my own two treatments spaced at two weeks apart, I can notice visible results in the revitalisation, toning and plumping of my 64-year old skin.
.
This is not a paid collaboration. This is a non-invasive, non-surgical facial treatment I’m road testing for myself with the excellent beauty aesthetician/owner of the Elenique beauty clinic in Fulham SW6 and Irina from BDR. I only ever try treatments which I have thoroughly researched beforehand. I want to know exactly what a treatment involves, what results are promised, its safety, possible downsides and most importantly the qualifications of the beautician, aesthetician, practitioner performing it. .
I am showing the treatment in its 10 stages with video clips.
.
I was even able to go to @alicehartdavis book launch event ( ) last night with a makeup-free radiant skin.
Many of the beauty experts there commented on how good my skin looked straight after this treatment and it wasn’t red at all either. .
I can highly recommend trying this treatment at this excellent local Fulham, SW London clinic.
The attention, care and expertise put into every part of their treatments are second to none.

Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini

Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini.
.
Whatever your bodyshape or size be confident in how you are naturally with no Insta filters.
.
Don't let people fat shame, body shame or make you feel bad about your body. .
We are all unique in our personalities, appearance and bodyshapes and that's what makes you special.
.
So although I had a 6lb weightloss after 7 nights @grayshottspa on the Health Regime it should not be about actual weight loss but more importantly about visceral body fat ( the fat that collects internally around your vital organs) which can lead to diabetes, heart disease and more.
.
So for an ongoing healthy lifestyle diet try to leave out:
Sugar 
Simple carbs ( all "white" foods such as bread, pastries, cakes, flour, potatoes, rice, pasta ) that turn into sugar
Fruits high in sugar ( grapes, bananas)
Fruit juices ( high in sugar even if fresh) 
Processed meats
Unhealthy processed cooking oils ( rapeseed, sunflower etc) 
Grains if you're sensitive to them
Milk
Low fat foods ( full fat best as our bodies need fat to feel fuller longer and to function well- especially the brain) .
.
Eat mainly :
( if you can)
Protein- organic eggs, poultry, grass fed beef, lamb, pork
Oily fish such as wild or organic salmon, herring, mackerel, tuna, sardines ( for Omega3) 
Organic leafy and colourful vegs, and a few root vegs.
Nuts and seeds ( non salted)
And full fat yoghurts ( Greek) and unpasteurised cheeses ( not if you're pregnant) 
And
Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut and Kefir. 
Good first press extra virgin Olive oil and coconut oil and good butter.
.
If you are Vegan or Vegetarian then obviously there is no meat or dairy but do check if your foods or dairy alternatives have high sugar content.

Happy face

Happy face. Haircut day. No make-up selfie. No filters.
.
Thank you @andyatagency as always.
Thank you @chanelnott for my blondeness.
Love my 2 favourite hairdressers.
.
As you get older often shorter hair cuts can be more flattering as they frame and lift the face instead of the impression of dragging down.. Also the correct hair colour tone is very important too as it can make so much difference to flattering or draining your skin tones. .

On the hottest night of the year in Soho, London at the FDA Summer film quiz night

On the hottest night of the year in Soho, London at the FDA Summer film quiz night. 
Hosted by the very good looking and very funny Alex Zane  @alexzane as seen in the selfie with me (I"m now looking like a hot and sweaty melted mess since my earlier posted pic in the hairdressers)

Alex did a Q&A with the hilarious stand up comedian Dominic Holland @dommoholland who just happens to be the dad of Spiderman Tom Holland @tomholland2013 
Dominic is soon to be performing at the Edinburgh Festival.
Such a fun evening. However it was just like sitting in a sauna fully clothed. .

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx

Loving my July haircut with @andyatagency Thank you xx.

My last haircut till September. My hairdresser Andy's client sitting next to me at the salon said she had dress envy. So sharing with you that my white lace dress came from Zara last summer and was on sale too. 
Btw I've always found that for both myself and often for my lady clients age 60plus shorter haircuts that frame the face, often at jawline length, can act as an instant facelift helping us look 10 years younger.
