In these challenging times when many of us are confined to our homes, we need to keep fit and healthy, and exercise
should always be part of our daily regime.

Before I go any further and and at the risk of sounding self-righteous, I have a big confession to make – I hate going
to the gym
.  I loathe exercise bikes, weights, running machines, I detest pilates, reformers and yoga bores me to tears.

So, I have had a major dilemma.  Just recently since being in semi-isolation, I’ve noticed bits of me were starting to
droop – some more than others, and I felt I should start trying to get gym fit without setting foot in one.!

I have been thinking there must be a way …and then

I remembered – the Tibetan Rites.

The Tibetan Rites worked for me several years ago on many levels and I loved doing them – which for me is a first
where any form of exercise is concerned.  So, in the past week, I have taken myself in hand and started practicing
them again.

Time to chant

The Rites take around 10/15 mins a day max and you can do them anywhere! They’re easy to achieve and the
results are astonishing including increased energy, weight loss, better memory, new hair growth, pain relief,
better digestion, and generally feeling great! Who needs the gym? They are quick and simple and if I can keep
them up then so can you!

So where did they originate? Hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lay an ancient secret.
Generations of Tibetan monks passed down a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties known
as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation, or the Five Rites.  These once-secret exercises are now available for all to
use by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the Rites while journeying
high up in the Himalayas.

Legend has it that the monks practicing the Tibetan Rites looked years younger and sustained optimum health well
into their eighties and beyond.  These five ancient Tibetan rites can also make you feel and look younger and are
the perfect solution for gym and exercise haters like me!

So, for once I would recommend – do try this at home – and you will benefit hugely from this ancient practice and
will never look back.

My mother was always a great inspiration to me, yet another reason why I miss her so much.  But as many of you know who have lost loved ones who are close to you, their voice will always resonate with you and their inspiration is eternal.

My Mother was always full of beauty advice and would say that hair is our most important asset – and that is true.  Hair really is our crowning glory, and if it is right, good hair can add to our confidence and make us feel we can conquer the World.

As a child, my mother would always take me with her when visiting a hair salon.   This was the swinging sixties and as she was then one of the most successful theatrical agents, she frequented the most iconic hairdressers of the time – Leonard, Ricci Burns, Vidal Sassoon to name but a few.

Ricci Burns

The salons were full of celebrities and a truly magical place for a child. I remember telling everyone at school that my hair had cost an entire £2, and no one believed a haircut could be so expensive!!

I always say that I’ve had more husbands than hairdressers but that’s not strictly true!  Only 2 people have cut my hair since I was 14.  The first was Michael Strum from Crimpers in Baker Street. From the moment he first cut my hair in the early 70’s until he died tragically in 2000, I never went anywhere else.  When he died, I was devastated, I had also lost a very good friend and the only person I trusted with cutting my hair.

Then by chance can I found the astonishing Ian Denson – who was working at John Frieda.   At the time he was their top stylist and salon manager and I’ve followed him around London and to many other salons ever since. He has also become a great friend and a mentor to me and many of my friends.

Ian loves long hair and has a knack for making it look thicker and longer each time.   I visit Ian probably four or five times a year for his styling, and really couldn’t live without him.

You can contact Ian at ‘Steven Carey Hair’ 22 Maddox Street, Mayfair, LONDON W1S 1PW.

As I now live outside London, I do stay closer to home for the colour and a weekly blow dry, so feel that Louise is my secret weapon as I find it hard to style my own hair.  I have a blow dry once or twice a week and colour every three and it’s my lovely Louise that literally brings both me and my hair back to life if I am struggling on both counts.

It is true that a good hairdresser is similar to a therapist and so one guilty pleasure I will never give up are my blow dries or Louise!

Louise has a micro salon in Cobham called ‘Oh So Coco’ and it’s like a dolls house. She entertains only two clients at once which makes me feel pampered and extra special as she does my hair.

Louise looks after me very well, after all, we all need to be pampered.  So, I would encourage you all to seek out your own versions of Ian and Louise if you can’t get into London or Cobham, and don’t be ashamed to have relationships with more than one hairdresser at a time.  After all, sometimes one person can’t give you everything you need to feel complete, and variety is definitely the spice of life as is your hair.

If you’re near Cobham make an appointment to see Louise – it’s difficult to get an appointment but worth the wait! http://www.louise-carter.com/

Debbie Arnold’s – Celebrity Makeup – It’s In The Bag

Reading Time: 3 minutes


Makeup is my passion so I’m always fascinated by what people have in they makeup bags and why!
I’ve asked my friends if they’ll show me theirs so I thought I’d show you mine first!
At present it’s a see through bag from Boots. Travelling a lot I find it easier to be able to see what I’ve got rather
than emptying it out – strange to have got inspiration from the plastic bags at airports!

Note the chewed blusher brush on the right designed by my dogs!

I have an awful lot of stuff on mine so this is in no particular order!!

Charlotte Tilbury film star bronze and glow.  I simply love this product. It’s in a beautiful container and it does what it says
on the compact – makes you bronzed and glowing. A great touch up when you’re out!

Pillowplump lip plump – picked up in BOOTS and love it!

Charlotte Tilbury lipstick that I mix (Penelope Pink) with nivea pearly shine which incidentally I use all the time. I’ve used
it for years and keeps my lips lovely and moisturised.

A chewed blusher brush. It has teeth marks on the handle don’t know how they got there!! It’s  my favourite.
Strangely my dogs like it too! ?

Bourjois volume clubbing mascara in black. Probably the best mascara I’ve ever used. Sadly very difficult to get now
but Amazon still have it!

3 different Charlotte Tilbury lip liners.

Bare minerals bare pro compact. A Fabulous product and you can keep adding to it without it going cakey. A great way
to lightly powder your face.

La Voix lip liner and lip stain – just to die for. I put it on in the evenings when I need to be red!

Max Factor panstick for under my eyes. Best concealer going.- old fashioned and brilliant.

Francesca Annis – it is all about Flesh and Blood

Francesca Annis – it is all about Flesh and Blood

Reading Time: 4 minutes


So much fuss is made of Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Goldie Hawn and other famous Hollywood icons – because they’re worth it!  But our very own Francesca Annis looks breath-taking in the new series of ‘Flesh and Blood’.  She looks at least 20 years younger than her years and the first shot of her jogging on the beach with her amazing figure really inspired me. If this is what 75 looks like, then bring it on.

Francesca Annis

It’s amazing how many people have said on Twitter and Facebook that she looks incredible because she hasn’t had any work done on her face. Well I beg to differ. Most ‘natural’ beauties in their 60’s,70’s and 80’s have had considerable work done on their faces. There are so many alternative skin therapies and treatments around, so many celebrities are no longer going ‘under the knife’ with the pressure they are under to look good, but opting for holistic options that they can live with without compromising their beliefs on invasive surgery.

There are older influencers out there who tell us to embrace ageing well, and although I agree that we should celebrate our ages, as it is a privilege to have reached maturity, why not utilise all the support systems in place to look and feel healthy, vibrant and young.  We do so with our health supplements and diet, so why not with the condition of our skin.

Most of us change the colour of our hair, undergo manicures and apply makeup to our faces. All of this is acceptable and even expected!  Many have now ‘come out’ about having treatments, as the majority are far more acceptable than they used to be.

Both Lesley and Aamer Khan, founders of the Harley Street Skin Clinic, are leading experts in the UK and give the best advice on the latest cosmetic beauty treatments and products.

There has been endless evidence that sleeping with dogs is good for your health, and our very own television Royalty Debbie Arnold is walking proof.

‘I didn’t intend to have 4 dogs, in fact if you said to me what breed of was my least favorite, I would have said a chihuahua or a Labrador… how the Gods must’ve laughed! – Its no wonder when you are friends with doggie royalty Paul O’Grady

Debbie and the gang

So how did this happen…. I’ve always been owned by dogs.   First of all there was Ricky who was a poodle.  I met him when I was 7 and he was my friend/brother growing up. Then came Lover.  He was the first dog I chose for myself.

I was starring in a play in the West End, was newly divorced and had decided that a dog was far better than a man.  Lover, true to his name, adored taking my underwear and I’m sure my neighbours at the time were quite shocked to hear me screaming ‘Lover drop my knickers NOW’ – God knows what they thought went on on my house.!

Then came Legend, a beautiful Tibetan Terrier rescue. Our first dog as a family. He was diagnosed with diabetes aged 5 and we had to give him injections him twice a day.  Due to our vet’s incredible groundbreaking treatment he changed the way diabetes was treated in dogs –  so the name Legend was perfect.  He lived till he was 13 -a gorgeous, brave and wonderful dog.

When we lost Legend I decided I wouldn’t get another dog, especially not a Tibetan.  But 3 weeks later I was at the rescue home again and came back with his doppelgänger…the vets were so shocked when they saw him as he was his exact twin. We named him Disney, and he was my beautiful ‘crackers’ boy!

After looking after a very sick dog for so long, it was fun to have a lunatic around. He was 2 years old, had never been housetrained, and had never been inside a house, so when he saw me go upstairs he followed in trepidation. Then when I went back down, he looked at me from the top of the stairs and threw himself doing a double somersault down the stairs, and landed by the front door. He never really mastered the art of climbing stairs!

Adventures with Disney were hilarious. One day when I was trying to housetrain him, I let him out on the large balcony outside my bedroom for a wee.  It was around 5am and I didn’t want to go downstairs – I went back to bed, fell briefly asleep, and then went to open the door to let him in. He’d disappeared. It was the summer and it was quite light. I looked in the garden thinking he may have jumped down, but he was nowhere to be seen.

Something made me look up and there he was standing on the roof! I have no idea to this day how he got there, but there he was. I woke my husband up screaming ‘Disney is stuck on the roof’.   He went into the garden, and climbed up a ladder onto the roof to rescue him. I was yelling ‘Dont Jump Dis stay where you are’!  Another challenge for the long suffering neighbours!  On another occasion Disney climbed down the wisteria after he locked himself in another bedroom. He certainly had adventures!

Disney’s life totally changed when my eldest daughter brought home Beanie the chihuahua. This 12 week old puppy just melted his heart and he adored her – he was 10 when she arrived and he was running around like a maniac. My daughter went on tour and Beanie stayed with me. We were a lovely canine family of 2 for six years when my youngest daughter had a breakup with her boyfriend.  So we all felt that a good way to recover from heartbreak was for her to get a dog of her own.

This is how Lady arrived. She was a young Springador puppy – needing loads of exercise. Disney was 16 by now and pretty grumpy so greeted this new puppy with great hostility. He was an old man after all.   Meanwhile, Beanie was fine as always – a very amicable little soul.

But when Lady was 5 months old Disney died and our hearts were broken.   He really had been the best boy who’d brought us so much pleasure.   He had a fantastic good long life and a very happy one, but he was sadly missed.

Both daughters are performers and were away from home a great deal, and so there I was caring for 2 dogs that technically were not mine.

Then 2 years ago Lady fell in love with my son-in-laws’ lab and they had 8 puppies.  As an avid dog lover, I in turn fell in love with two of the puppies, and the rest is history.   I am now the proud owner of four dogs.

Smile for the camera

Finally, and you have probably guessed what I am about to tell you, all four dogs now sleep with me.  Is sleeping with dogs good for your health?  It’s a resounding yes from me, and in fact I would thoroughly recommend it.
