I had been recommended to try Dr Rasha’s clinic in Mayfair.
I was temperature checked on arrival, the reception staff were behind screens and wearing masks, and masks were obligatory in the waiting areas and for therapists.
The clinic was extremely professional, clean and somewhere any new anxious client would feel completely confident and comfortable, in these post-lockdown Covid times, to go to be treated.
Here I am in pic 1, all masked up, with the lovely owner- Dr Rasha aesthetics physician and clinic director, and in pic 2 here I am after my facial with my 65-year old happy shiny face that loved the professional tlc and pampering it had just received.
I will be revisiting again very soon. Thank you for my lovely afternoon.
(Btw, this isnt an ad, I only write and post about places and products that I believe in and make a difference to my life and may inspire others).
Our new normal changes daily.
We have to be positive and live in the moment – not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to – apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.
You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake – however bad.
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well
Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil – adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there’s another time of the day you would prefer.
Maybe evening – 6pm – better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

Nesse is a brilliant pilates and barre teacher.
I am 65 and try to keep myself fit and healthy.
In life before Covid19 I spoke on radio, TV and in schools and organisations on mental wellness, social media, positive body image, first impressions and healthy eating (I have a nutrition diploma) health, beauty, lifechange and personal image and style. (I was a celebrity stylist for A list stars for 30 years) .
Nesse and I are going to be chatting together at 10am tomorrow –
and answering your questions on any subjects you ask us:
From menopause to men,
Healthy diet or current lifestyle dilemmas
pilates to positivity.
… and more.. .
before Nesse and I host a Zoom fun Pilates class the following Monday for anyone who is age 50 plus and would still like to keep fit. .
Look forward to 10am tomorrow.
A date for your diaries.
Please share this post xx
Core strength and tummy.
Let me know what I can do next to inspire or entertain?

Message me please
Our grandparents were clever to never waste any food. They had to be. They were rationed. We are used to abundance so I’m going to be demonstrating my ways of using leftovers for tasty recipes that could stretch across a week.
Video clip 1 is a Sunday roast- chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic.
Photos are a chicken, leek and onion pie with the remainder of the roast potatoes sliced on top and then baked in the oven topped with seeds and breadcrumbs (that fell off my sourdough loaf when I sliced it) and olive oil on top.
Video 2 chicken stock from all the meat and veg remains and additional herbs and leeks and onions and green vegetable water.
Healthy eating helps immunity.
I cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly.
I’ve just had my second appointment with her.
She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.
Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart.
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.
It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL – good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.
Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.
It even checks for cancer markers.
Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.
The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180.
Well done on raising so many thousands of £s auctioning the controversial one shoulder dress for your charity @girlguiding as a result of – wearing a dress that had slipped off the shoulder and was deemed inapropriate in the House of Commons. .
It’s easy to have clothing malfunctions and indeed my own @zara top in the photo can be worn in all ways – exposing shoulders or not.
Women are continuously judged and often more harshly by other women than by men. .
My lifestyle consultancy takes me into organisations where women prefer to often dress androgynously- in trousers- in black- to not be noticed for what they wear- but only for the excellent job they do.
I also speak in schools- where teenage girls feel the need to look perfect- especially on their social media- affecting their mental health.
I hope my own social media feed, that is never filtered, inspires and can show women – young and old – that we can all be individual. Embracing our quirks and flaws make each of us unique and special. No celebrity I have ever dressed had a perfect body or flawless face in my past 30 year career as a celebrity stylist. .
We shouldn’t be afraid to wear what we feel comfortable in- however- if we work in an organisation and are customer facing, then we are the face of the brand and should dress accordingly. .
Be true to yourself, don’t compare and don’t let the judgement of others break you. .
