Every so often we need to take time out away from social media

Every so often we need to take time out away from social media. To focus on ourselves and our family. Family is everything.

Our Instagram posts show the glossy, happy sides of our lives. Even with no filters on our photos, we still carefully edit what we put out into the public domain. .
Do our followers really want to know what's going on in our private lives?  Yes or no? .
Maybe if it can inspire? ...

I only want to inspire and motivate with positive messages and images. 
Showing how to be age proud at 65 years old, have body confidence, live a healthy and active lifestyle, have good mental health and that it's never too late to try anything new.

talkRADIO with Steph & Dom

Talking about getting ready and packing for your Summer holidays. Everything from beauty to style and if you are like myself, how we girls like to pack for eventualities, those what-if moments, often preparing days or even weeks in advance. I’ve found that most men can’t understand this as they often simply throw a small bag together on the morning of departure.

2nd guest speaker talk this week For Mental Health Week The topic is Body Image and Social Media For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke

2nd guest speaker talk this week
For 
Mental Health Week 
The topic is
Body Image and Social Media 
For BNP Paribas Leasing Basingstoke.
.
I love doing these speaker talks for organisations or schools.
If I can inspire or change the mindset even of just a small percentage of my audience it's all worth while.
.
I want both women and men to aspire to be their unique best selves, to not aspire to be like the images that they perceive to be the reality on Instagram social media posts.
.
I'm wearing:
A current season £29.00 Zara dress.
I replaced the plastic red belt it came with, with a Gucci one.  I like to mix affordable High street with occasional Designer accessories.
Orange ballet shoes Zara past season.

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. .
