The Rolling Stones: an alternative ageing message for us all!

The Rolling Stones: an alternative ageing message for us all!

I don't usually blog about gigs but having witnessed four men in their mid-seventies with a combined age of nearly 300, having the time of their lives on stage, I just had to share this with you as one of the best examples of positive ageing I have seen in a long time......

Vintage Ladies, Vintage Style.

Vintage Ladies, Vintage Style.

This blog is not just about me. I also love featuring my stylish Instagram friends as a sort of homage to a category I used to have on here called, I Like Your Style. Now we have nearly two thousand posts on Instagram who have used the hashtag #vintageladyvintagestyle. Wow! Thank you.  So, here are my favs from March/April……..

One of my favourite summer recipes for healthy hormones, heart & brain......

Another yummy recipe from the day I spent with fellow blogger Sara Delaney, trying out new dishes especially for happy hormones and a healthy heart. Sara does the superb photography, I do the cooking and we both get to do the eating!  It's a very mutually beneficial arrangement!  This one is our twist on a salad nicoise, featuring salmon and silver anchovies as the heroes..........

A brunch recipe bursting with health.......

A brunch recipe bursting with health.......

I love trying out new recipes, especially ones brimming with health, so to spend the day with a fabulous photographer whilst cooking an untried dish from my favourite chef, and eating it, doesn't get much better than that! Add the mix of doing this in a stylist's home and it's quite the perfect day for a nosey blogger.

A little High Street Shopping for Spring.

A little High Street Shopping for Spring.

Here I am jumping for joy because it felt like Spring........and then the snow came!  Those of you who've known me for a while know that for the last few winters I have been able to escape to Byron Bay to avoid the worst of the English weather. This year, sod's law, I stayed here, apart from three amazing weeks in India, and realised that I may have the best vintage coats in the world but absolutely no warm clothes to wear underneath...........

Vintage lady, vintage style!

I love vintage style and I'm also a vintage lady, so a couple of years ago I started a hashtag on Instagram called #vintageladyvintagestyle 'cause I wanted anyone at any age to join in and show their gorgeous outfits off, vintage or non-vintage, especially if they're Over 50 and no longer feeling invisible! But I need to recruit some new members as there just aren't enough of us out there strutting our stuff..............

What I wore in India on a train trip around Rajasthan.

What I wore in India on a train trip around Rajasthan.

I was lucky enough to spend the most amazing three weeks traveling around India, straight after Christmas, spending a couple of days in Mumbai, eight days on the Maharajas Express visiting all the usual suspects in Rajasthan, a few days in Delhi and then a much needed week of R & R in Goa. It was awesome, the trip of a lifetime.......

I visit a new yoga retreat in Ibiza for relaxing, raw food & raving!

 I visit a new yoga retreat in Ibiza for relaxing, raw food & raving!

It's that time of the year when we start thinking about booking a healthy holiday!  So here's one I'd love to share with you. You know how much I love Ibiza so when I was invited to visit the new Mind, Body, Retreats for a few days last October, I jumped on that 'plane as fast as security would allow. What I didn't expect, apart from the awesome yoga, was relaxing, raw food & raving.........
