Sometimes you just have to!

Sometimes you just have to! .
My Instagram posts are all about being real, no filters, being true to yourself and leading a healthy lifestyle with nutrition and fitness tips,  intermittent fasting, and healthy sugar free and wheat free recipes for a healthy gut.. .
However.....
.
When you're in Brighton at a brilliant fishy restaurant @thesaltroombrighton you have a day off. .
Sometimes a little of what you fancy is better than having those cravings and constantly denying yourself.
Life is for living and enjoying.
.
Dont beat yourself up after, enjoy the moment and every single mouthful and then go back to eating healthily the next day with maybe a 16/18 hour break before your first meal of the following day to give your digestive system time to recover.
.
This is a sharing pud..... "A taste of the Sea"
( and no it wasn't all for me) 
Candyfloss, rhubarb "99" ice cream, smoked salted fudge,  chocolate truffle pebble, apple and almond tart, passion fruit sours, chocolate and orange doughnut,, .
The picture on the bottom right is fish soup. It was served separately in a jug together with croutons, to be poured over a piece of octapus, roux and I think a piece of orange which were at the bottom of the bowl. .
It was absolutely delicious

With the brilliant Bryony Gordon after her open, honest and funny talk in the first of a series of ” Live Well” inspirational talks at the Hurlingham club

With the brilliant Bryony Gordon after her open, honest and funny talk  in the first of a series of " Live Well" inspirational talks at the Hurlingham club.
.
Loved Bryony and her no filter approach to life and being true and authentic to who she is.
.
That "we should all be kinder to ourselves"
And "We should say NO more often" 
Were two of Bryony's thoughts that resonated most with me. .
Most women are so self-critical and often feel they are not enough. But they are and should allow themselves to be who they are. 
That is why Bryony's Instagram is always real and never filtered and so is mine too- hopefully to inspire women of all ages.
Never to try to be something they are not. 
Be individual and unique.
.
Great to meet you Bryony and have a chat at the end. .
I really enjoyed listening to you talking spontaneously with no prompts, with your energy and joie de vivre and how you now embrace life sober and grab it by the balls.

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.

@bbc5live @emmabarnett .
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. .

This @tuclothing #allboobswelcome campaign launches next week across all social media channels and magazines

This @tuclothing campaign launches next week across all social media channels and magazines. This page is in @voguemagazine
.
The campaign has undoubtedly done what it set out to do in a positive way.
.
A grid of 26 women ( including myself) of all ages, shapes and sizes captured un-posed, laughing and confident in their own skin.
.
Message = Embrace the body shape and boobs you have as you are all unique. No airbrushing or filters. Candid unposed shots. 
Helping women understand that there is no such thing as a perfect body shape.
.
However in my professional life,  I have always tried to demonstrate to both my celebrity and non-celebrity clients in over 30 years of working together with top photographers that how you hold yourself, stand and the angle you are shot at can make a significant end difference to how your body shape and size appears on film. .
Straight on to camera will always be unflattering. Angled slightly away from camera will always be better. .
Next week I will demonstrate how a slight tweak of stance can make a significant difference (still natural with no filters or airbrushing).

#tbthursday Back in the day

Back in the day.
Before social media and when we were all happier in our own skins.
.
Here I am on holiday in Mauritius in 1980s.
.
We aspired to look like the models or movie stars we read about in magazines or saw on TV and movies. There were no reality wannabe TV stars , a celebrity was a celebrity by virtue of actual talent not Tv exposure or a social media presence.
.
We may have wanted to be slimmer, have bigger boobs, a smaller waist or longer legs but we didn't stress about it, didn't seek cosmetic procedures to instantly change our bodies or body shame.
.
Life seemed simpler then.
We could be who we wanted to be without judgement.
The words anxiety and mental health weren't words that we now so often hear in our daily life.
.
We are all shapes and sizes and should accept and embrace our differences. .
That's what makes you unique and special.
No one is perfect , unless they've been filtered or airbrushed in a social media photo. And that's not reality. .
Don't compare.
Don't judge
Be yourself.
