"I have been practicing yoga for nearly twenty years and nothing makes me feel as centered as this mental, spiritual and physical practice"
Christy Turlington

I haven't been practicing yoga for twenty years but I totally understand yogi devotee, Christy Turlington's view of grounds you like no other physical practice I teaches self acceptance; it's about being good to yourself.  Life gets in the way sometimes of my morning practice, I haven't learnt yet, how not to let this happen or maybe I should just accept is a discipline on and off the mat afterall.

"The Light that yoga sheds on Life is something special.
It is transformative.
It does not just change the way we see things;
it transforms the person who sees."
B.K.S. Iyengar



August has definitely been a month of changes for me...and detail, detail...looking forward to the new blog being up and running very soon and my new website should be live by the end of the month; all very exciting. A good time to make changes and let things 'bed in' a little before the hectic autumn/winter months.

I'd like to say a very big thank you to you all for being such an important part of my wouldn't be the same without you.

With My Love


"The secret to beauty is simple:
be who you are."

I'm a huge fan of make-up pioneer Bobbi Brown and her nude pallete; the perfect make-up.
I thought I'd share her 10 Golden Rules with you...the rules she lives her life by as she told Porter Magazine... they sound great to me.

Do what you love.  Love what you do.  when you are passionate about
something your life is richer.  If not your job, then start a hobby.

It is never too late to reinvent yourself; my father is the perfect example.
His whole life he wrote children's stories, but was a lawyer.
When he retired, he finally followed his dreams.

Spread beauty - and not just the make-up kind, although I'm always a fan
of a great lipstick.  A kind person is the definition of beauty.

The more you give in life, the more you get back. Give time, money, clothes,
toys.  Just give, and without any expectations of getting anything in return.

Keep it simple.  Try not to overthink or overcomplicate things.

Be a sponge.  I'm 58 and still learn new things every day - it helps to be
surrounded by youth.

Tell the truth.  Nobody likes a liar.  If you mess up, own up to it.
If you have an opinion, share it. You'll gain more respect if people know
they can trust that you are honest.

Do your best.  Nobody can fault you if you work hard and give it
your best shot.

Just breathe. We spend so much time working and socialising that we
rarely check in with ourselves.  There is a lot of healing power in just
taking a deep breath

Be who you are.  Confidence is everything...although a little 
make-up can't hurt


Great words to live by: "I know we live in a youth-focused, anti-ageing culture but, let’s get real: we ARE ageing. I don’t care about looking younger, I care about looking beautiful as I age."

I recently read this quote which really says how I feel...we can become so focused on age and comparing ourselves to how we were in our 20s, 30s and on it goes...let's just be the best of ourselves now and enjoy our lives.  We have to eat well, exercise and take care of ourselves and the biggest thing to care for...our minds...if we continually feed it negativity that is what we become, if we continually rush and hurry around it saps the body's vigour...when we are calm, we glow with strength and beauty whatever our age.

You know when life just gets in the way of doing what you need to do...and what I need to do, more than anything, is to always find time for my yoga practice and my beloved grounds, calms and nourishes me...this week for one reason or another it's been difficult.  Being a yogi is of course, a discipline on and off the mat, it is a way of being... but I do so miss it, when I'm unable to practice daily... it feeds my soul.

Making time for what makes you feel good is not a luxury but a necessity and perhaps most of all a discipline.  I love this old zen adage...

"You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day - unless you're too busy;
then you should sit for an hour."



Back from a wonderful holiday in Croatia and now working with designers on a new blog and website...hopefully, all up and running in the Summer.  You have to continually mix things up, change designs and keep working on creating and keeping the interest of your readers and my customers...I know I've said it before but I am so enjoying this time of my life...and there's no better time than the Summer to make the all essential changes.

New colours and designs arriving for the autumn...I'm in a world of cashmere...and loving every minute of it!
