Want proof? Just cast your eyes upon the 65-year-old’s new M&S campaign, which shows her modelling her summer collection for the high street giant.

Twiggy has long been working for the high street store – and has seemingly taken inspiration from the 70s trends seen on the catwalks this season.

Her new designs include a chic denim jacket, floral and feminine print dress and leopard-print trousers.

Whilst she looks flawless in the new shoot, the fashion stalwart has admitted that while she has never had cosmetic surgery, she hasn’t entirely ruled it out.
She told Woman Fashion magazine: ‘I haven’t had any cosmetic surgery – yet. I’m not saying I never would, but at the moment, I don’t feel I need to.

However, the model added: ‘But I am totally against Botox. Firstly, it’s poisonous – I don’t want botulism in my body thank you very much. Secondly, we don’t know the long-term effects. Doctors say it disappears in the body, but where? And I don’t like what it does to people’s faces.’

Her new designs include a chic jumpsuits, fun prints and on-trend sandals perfect for the summer season
Twiggy, who is married to actor Leigh Lawson, 69, takes a relaxed approach to ageing and seems at peace with her advancing years.

‘There’s nothing you can do about getting older. You’ve just got to accept it,’ she said. ‘It’s no good locking yourself away in a room and crying on your birthday.’

Twiggy’s short cropped haircut helped propel her to stardom in the swinging Sixties, but nearly 50 years later, she is embracing her longer locks and will not be pressured into cutting them short.

Twiggy – real name Lesley Hornby – has rubbished the beauty rule which says that as a women gets older, her hair should get shorter.

She has blonde hair that falls well past her shoulders and is the face of L’Oreal hair products.

The Importance of a Motivating Morning Ritual

When I decided to change my daily habits to create a more fulfilling life, I created my very own morning ritual. The idea was to create a more inspiring way to begin each day and then in turn, create a better life for not only me, but for all of those that I love around me.

I urge anyone trying to improve their lives  to awaken one hour earlier every morning to learn, read, meditate, move and take a moment to think about all that you have  to be grateful for, even the smallest of things. This daily habit has  made a huge impact on my life.

I am currently studying the teachings of the philosopher Seneca, because I believe that without a philosophy to guide my work and life, I will succumb to daily excuses and distractions. I will make the mistake of acting on my moods…

Sensory Overload: Changu Lake

My Life

The Tsongmo Lake or Changu Lake is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim, India, some 40 kilometres (25 mi) away from Gangtok, the capital of the state of Sikkim. Its elevation is 3,780 m (12,400 ft). During the winter season the lake remains frozen.he lake surface reflects different colours with change of seasons. The lake is held in great reverence by the local Sikkimese people. Buddhist monks prognosticated the future of the country after studying the changing colours of the lake. As the lake is located in a restricted area it is essential for all Indians visiting the area to obtain permits. In case of foreign nationals special permit is essential. It’s better to go with travel agents because they will do all the documentation for our trip.Changu lake (10)Changu lake (7)Changu lake (5)Changu lake (9)Changu lake (2)Changu lake (1)

The Flatform Sandal: The Most Polarizing Shoe of All Time?

Style Domination

Summer is nearing and I want new sandals.  I’m noticing that the flatform sandal trend refuses to die, and it looks like it’s grown on me.

With my husband on an overseas work assignment, a sister in Toronto and another sister who refuses to answer my texts (that’s you, Alice), I turned to my good pal Vanessa for an honest take on the Teva flatforms pictured below.  She hated them.  In fact, I could sense her utter disgust through my computer!

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

memories longing forgiveness

when nothing could be done

to undo, relive past

why time and tide

ebbs, flows fast

leaving no moment

to reflect, adjust, adapt

errors of judgement,

random acts of subterfuge,

insensitive words deluge,

destroy what is near, dear

to the heart and soul

nothing remains untouched, whole

only too much time to reflect

your loneliness

Hi again!

L.A. Girl recently came out with new shades of their famous pro conceal concealer, there are some lighter ones, some darker ones, and color-correcting ones. Today I will review “porcelain”, “light ivory”, and “classic ivory” (not new).

I absolutely love the formula, as it dries fast and is the only concealer that does not crease under my eyes. It is very pigmented and lasts all day. It is the least expensive concealer I own and the most used and loved one in my collection! My only issue with this concealer is the shades that were available, and as many of you have heard, were not light enough for very fair-skinned people like myself. The lightest shade they had was “classic ivory” and from the swatches below you will see that it was very pink-toned. When I swatched it months ago for the first time, I was shocked at…
