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.......

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.

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.........

10 Top Tips to avoid piling on the pounds over Christmas - and what to do if you have!

We're likely to eat a shocking 6000 calories on Christmas Day, as well as an extra 500 calories every day on the run-up to the holiday, which starts earlier and earlier each year. By the time we reach New Year's Eve, we could be wearing an extra 5lbs around our tummy..........
