No make up, no filter selfie

No make up, no filter selfie.

This month's fresh haircut. As we age a good haircut is so important to help flatter, frame and lift the face.
And
This month's improved wrinkly skin texture after 4 sessions so far of BDR facial treatments which are still ongoing once a fortnight to get optimum results. I will show a before and after when I'm further on in the course of treatments.

Chatting about age- and being real on BBC5live at 10.50am this morning with Emma Barnett.
.
Why I no longer feel the need to fib about my age even when I reach another milestone birthday. Looking in the mirror each morning isn't always the best as i still feel like my younger self inside but the mirror tells a different story.
.
When we were in our teens or twenties,  we aged ourselves up to appear more wordly and maybe to be taken more seriously by those older than us especially for career advancement.
.
However when we reached our 40s and onwards we fibbed and lopped years off to remain as long as possible in the previous decade.
.
Now that we look after ourselves better with a healthy lifestyle and diet, nutrition knowledge, fitness and beauty regimes, we can look our best and be proud of how we look naturally whatever our age.
.
I'm proud to look the way I do in my 60s.
.
Of course I would like to look like I did when I was in my 20s but I'll settle for being the best version of how I am now.
.
I've had amazing life experiences in my 60plus years and two wonderful children. 
Ive no need to fib any longer.
.
I want to inspire women of all ages.

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. .

Tbt to when I was a QVC guest presenter for the fashion brand Bob Mackie

Tbt to when I was a QVC guest presenter for the fashion brand Bob Mackie.
.
Bob Mackie's Wearable Art was 'fashion for women of a certain age, who want to be noticed, not invisible. Fashion designed to flatter and create illusions of a better body shape.
.
I love inspiring older women to not be invisible or feel less than they were.  Helping women to be the best versions of themselves , whatever age, bodyshape or size they are, with no social media filters.
.
I hope to inspire positive body image, confidence, self-esteem and no comparison anxiety for better mental health. .

Selfie on the way to a 50th birthday party- dress code ‘blue’

Selfie on the way to a 50th birthday party- dress code 'blue'. I've had this tie-dye turquoise silk slip dress for 20 years ( bought in a sample sale). It's my go-to Summer dress to dress up or down and take on holidays as it rolls up into a tiny nothing. 
I wore it with flat sandals as the party was at a farm house in a field in a fabulous Moroccan style marquee with very uneven ground that required major concentration and definitely no heels to safely navigate across and dance.
It was a great party. .
