Time and gravity wait for no woman and over the years,
facial contours soften and the silhouette becomes less defined, particularly
around the jawline, something about which I’m only too aware. 

So I was very interested
and even more excited to try out Natural Facelift Massage, courtesy of Janet
Brennand at Craven Clinic in Skipton.

Known as Facial Rejuvenation, it is an holistic
treatment blending Japanese and Indian face massage techniques and it’s available at salons and clinics throughout the country.

My treatment began with relaxation and energy
balancing followed by acupressure on my face. Janet used a blend of essential
oils including orange and bergamot which smelled
divine. She massaged my face and neck with varying degrees of pressure to
detect areas of tension and then began working her magic on just one side of my
face to enable comparison. 

When I looked in the mirror I couldn’t believe the
difference between the two sides. My jawline was tighter, nasolabial lines
softer and under-eye congestion and puffiness significantly reduced. My
cheekbones looked more defined and the whole side of my face appeared smoother
and plumper. I was truly amazed.

Janet repeated the technique on the other side of my face and the treatment
ended with lymphatic drainage, a scalp massage and an application of Neal’s
Yard moisturiser.

The final result was incredible. I looked and felt at
least five years younger, like I’d had a facelift, but a natural one. The results lasted several days so as a one-off treatment, this would be fantastic for a special occasion. The results are cumulative so a course of six weekly treatments
followed by a monthly maintenance treatment is recommended.

I would love to have this treatment again.

It’s been a beautiful day in every way today. We started by watching my son play football. The team won with a convincing 5-0 score, so it was the perfect start.

It was then back home for a quick change. This dress is one of my favourites from last year. It is so simple and elegant and the beaded collar is just gorgeous. 

And I think the shoes speak for themselves. One of my absolute favourite pairs.

The sun came out and we spent the afternoon in my brother and sister-in-law’s garden celebrating my niece’s first birthday. I can’t believe how quickly the last year has passed. She is utterly adorable and continues to add such love and happiness to our family.

And Adam has just sent this photograph to me of tonight’s stunningly beautiful blood moon. He knows I love the moon and tonight it is spectacular.

I love autumn Saturdays, especially mild sunny ones. Adam and I ran various child-centric errands in the morning, had a leisurely stroll through the park after lunch and then returned home to cook a roast chicken supper.  

It’s the Yarndale Festival this weekend here in Skipton and a lot of the lamp posts in the park were adorned with crocheted creations.

And the leaves…

…I just love the leaves.
