Give the gift of memories

This year I’m giving the gift of experiences as much as possible as I feel that giving someone the opportunity to do something that they wouldn’t normally treat themselves to is really special (well I think so, maybe you’d prefer a new handbag?! 😂)

Therefore I’ve compiled this list from my online community who all offer a service or experience that you can gift, or buy a voucher towards the price. Feel free to forward a link to this page to Father Christmas or leave your laptop open so that curious eyes can have a read!

Give the gift of style and confidence this Christmas.
A personal stylist can work with you to discover your personal style, colour, a special outfit or wardrobe edit.

Unbelievably, we’re half way though my #MidlifeGlowup chats! Time flies when you’re talking to some really interesting people! 🥰 I can honestly say that I have taken away something from each and every one of these conversations and I’m sure that you will too. They also cleverly overlap and interlink, so make sure that you catch the whole set to get maximum benefit!

So far I’ve chatted to:
@cocobee06 about ‘if not now, then when?!’ and general go get’em positivity!
@componopersonaltraining about overcoming your barriers to exercise and getting fitter for a healthier life. Remember that there’s a special, Midlife Glow Up, full body exercise vid over on Anna’s IGTV.
@ukglowology about caring for your skin and face yoga.
@annie_breen_nutrition about reclaiming your energy and the importance of looking after your gut.
@so_coco_rouge answered many of your questions about makeup and not getting stuck in a rut of doing the same old, in the same old way!

Still to come:
@marvellousmidlife is here on Wednesday to talk about peri menopause and some of its ‘invisible’ symptoms and where to get advice and support. 
@katie.portman will share her styling ideas for developing your personal style and colours.
@traciesedit will be here to answer any hair issues and styling questions.
@drlouisewrites will round it all up and talk about what she learnt when writing her book ‘Your Best Life. A Doctor’s Guide to Radiant Health Over 40′
@componopersonaltraining will hopefully be back to see how your fitness mojo and motivation is getting on by March!

If you have any questions to be asked in the upcoming chats, feel free to drop me a message.

Just go to my IGTV tab to catch up on anything that you may have missed. They are around 40 minutes long so treat them as a podcast, bang one on while you’re doing something boring and have a listen! ✨
