Pictures of Nicola wearing different outfits
Over the past few weeks, quite a few people have suggested that I write a style guide on what to wear during lockdown. I must admit I have hesitated to do this till now because the last thing I want to do in these difficult and stressful times is suggest that we should be focusing on what we look like. Goodness knows there are far more important things to worry about…. BUT ...

Mature Make-Up Class

As we mature our faces change. It’s not just a matter of a few more lines or the effects of gravity; you may have noticed that your lips are a little paler and thinner and that your eyebrows have become a bit more sparse. You may feel as if your face is in danger of “fading away”. If you already wear make-up, your current routine might not seem to be working so well for you...

Travelling Light

Now, I don’t want to sound smug but the fact is I am rather good at travelling light. I can virtually guarantee that my husband Nick and I will have the smallest, lightest bags in the airport check- in queue. Back in the day, we used to travel with a single suitcase between us until we realised that if it went astray we would literally have nothing to wear! Nowadays we spli...

Do You Feel Invisible?

Do you feel invisible? The reason I ask is because feeling invisible is one of the key reasons women give me for deciding to come along for a consultation.

This is reflected in a survey of 2000 people by  Dr Julian De Silva which found that by the age of 45 women s...
