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. .

Sunday’s thought for the day

Sunday's thought for the day.

On social media and especially on Instagram "Likes" can = Acceptance and self-worth to many on here.
Be like Tom and be your own person. 
Be unique.
Don't compare yourself.
Your individuality is what makes you special.

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. .

#Tbt Me age 15 and age 28

Me age 15 and age 28.

These photos are pre-social media when there were no filters on photos and no pressures to look a certain way. .
Of course there were those who were skinny too and those who were fat but no-one judged or had anywhere to post photos that weren't real. The only place to post a photo was in a personal photo album which stayed in your living room. .

No-one exercised, worked out or went to gyms in the same 'addicted to fitness' way so our bodies were a different shape and less toned than gym bodies of nowadays. .
Maybe we did ballet or horse riding or swam or did some form of sport at school and beyond but only for our personal enjoyment. Not with the same end goals to have the perfect Instagram body. .
We didn't compare or judge. 
No pressures to look a certain way.
We were happier and more confident in our body image then. 
Free to be who we were. .

It is very rewarding doing school talks to pre-teen and teen girls and boys to help them understand how to deal with the impact of social media on their everyday lives and especially how it affects their self-esteem and confidence. 
Also to understand how bullying can be silent and subtle but still devasting. 
How no girl should ever be one of the mean girls. 
Everyone is different, unique and differences of culture and ethnicity and personality should be embraced.
