Women Fashion Power – Design Museum – London

On The New

Onthenew Women Fashion Power Design Museum 3You may not be surprised to hear that this exhibition was shown at the Design Museum. Note the words ‘WOMEN’, ‘FASHION’ and ‘POWER’ on the moving clock hands.

Given that this exhibition was about women and power, I’m not sure if I should include the bit from the card that explains that she was the ‘wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria’. I’d leave it out on principle, but perhaps marriage to an emperor was a key defining point in her identity.

Fitness League (Women’s League of Health & Beauty) – what’s the attraction?

I first discovered the Women’s League of Health & Beauty in the 1970’s. I was in my 20’s looking to keep fit and stay slim and was recommended a local class by my friend’s Auntie. To say I was hooked from the beginning is an understatement and when I think why, it was 3 things:

1. An amazing teacher (Chris O’Rourke)
2. Movement and dance combination to great music
3. Progression of movements into a routine

I had never been to a dance or ballet class when I was younger so to be able to ‘perform’ a routine was a great sense of achievement for me. The excitement of doing this at the Royal Albert Hall took it to a whole new level.

I stayed an avid member for 5 years but then I went off travelling, moved to London with my job and for the next 25 years I kept fit at the gym and running but never found anything I loved as much as the Women’s League. Nor did I think of looking for a London class, oh the days before the World Wide Web!

Fast forward to 2006/7 and the modern technology of the internet and Google, sitting at my desk one day, I searched for Women’s League of Health and Beauty and indeed there was a very basic webpage informing me of its name change – The Fitness League, with a contact email – Lucy Martin.

I contacted Lucy to enquire about classes and possibly training as a teacher and within a day or two I was off for a taster day and enrolled on a training course with Pat Holden, another inspirational teacher, before I could even think about it.

I currently relief teach, with a view to starting my own classes in the near future. Since becoming a teacher and attending teacher training and meetings, I became curious as to what drew other members and teachers to the League in the first place and what kept them coming back year after year, sometimes for 50 years or more. Here are some of my findings from 20 current members/teachers:

1. 95% were introduced by their Mum, Auntie or a close friend – so word of mouth was the overwhelming introduction to FL
2. The combination of movement to music was the main attraction, and what kept people coming back for more, as it offers an holistic approach through stretching, strengthening and toning to achieve optimum fitness.
3. The desire to pass on the benefits, often led members into teaching, as they too wished to spread the word.
4. The friendships (some span 50 years or more) and social aspect of being part of a class or team.

What can we draw from this or learn as we take Fitness League further into the 21st Century? For sure, the more we talk about it and spread the word the more we will increase brand awareness. Are we telling anyone who will listen, the amazing benefits of FL or do we talk about it in hushed tones when friends ask us what ‘kind’ of fitness it is that we do? The one with the black pants and white shirts is how I often end up explaining it.

Let’s not make the Fitness League our best kept secret but let’s shout about it in the modern world. Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Bloggers, Vloggers, Youtube etc – are the new Mum’s, Aunties and best friends of the modern world. This is how the Millennials live their lives, through images and posts on their Twitterfeed. How often do you see something on the web that drives you to buy it, try it or not, as the case may be. We all hear about things going viral, let’s take the League viral!

It’s where we find our news and where we create our views. Whenever you post something on the Web use a hashtag, this is what makes something a trending topic #FitnessLeague #Thisgirlcan #BagotStack #Movementislife. Get your children and grandchildren to post on their Social Media pages about their amazing Mum or Grandma or let’s create a Fitness League day where we all twitter and FB, maybe on the birthday of Mary (Mollie) Bagot Stack #BagotStack

From one Fitness League fan to another – let’s safeguard it for our children and our children’s children….why wouldn’t we? It is the most amazing form of all round exercise you can do and it is what keeps our members fit and active well into their 90’s!

I wish to thank all of the teachers and members who sent me their reasons for joining and what keeps them coming back. I was inspired so let’s continue to inspire our members and the members of the future, let the Bagot Stack method live on.

Omorovicza Wedding Facials

I was recently asked to do a guest blog for Omorovicza about facials in preparation for the big day. Here is the link…..

Our Global Head of Spa, Kim Davies share her tips for brides-to-be

The preparation for the Big Day, one of the most important days in a woman’s life, starts at least 2 years before. Booking the church, the reception, who will be your bridesmaid or even which guests will attend or not attend (you know you can’t include your embarrassing Aunty), has to be decided very early on.

Is gold the new wonder ingredient? | London Beauty Insider

I was recently asked by the London Beauty Insider if Gold really was one of the new Wonder Ingredients.

They wrote:

Gold is next on the agenda, and one that immediately results in an eye roll. Gold, really? But actually, if you look a little closer into its history, it’s an ingredient that has been used for centuries. Kim Davies, Global Spa Director at Omorvicza talks us through its benefits.

Is the use of gold in skincare a new thing?

“No, the healing powers of gold have been known to us for centuries. The Egyptians used gold for all manner of physical, mental and spiritual concerns, and the Romans used it to cure skin complaints such as lesions and sores. It is also believed that Cleopatra used it to enhance and add radiance to her complexion”.

What are its benefits?

“We use it to rejuvenate skin, reduce inflammation, inhibiting the breakdown of collagen and elastin and reduce wrinkles”.

Which types of products should we look for it within, and how is it best applied?

“It is best used in serums, day and night, as the ingredients are more easily absorbed this way. You can also use it in a moisturiser or mask for added radiance beneath a foundation”.

Cat reviews Omorovicza’s Gold Flash Firming Serum

I must admit that gold has never been an ingredient I would ordinarily look for in a beauty product. It seems perhaps a little gimmicky – like something a brand would bring out at Christmas to make a product seem more magical and luxurious? But, having tried Omorovicza’s Gold Flash Firming Serum, I would retract my words. I love it! Give me gold, gold and more gold!

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm….

This is a blogger friend of mine who has written about one of my favourite products, the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm.

Elegant Ageless Beauty

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

Omorovicza is a Hungarian beauty brand, the story begins 2000 years ago really when the healing properties of  Hungary’s thermal waters were first discovered. It wasn’t until the 1800’s though that the Omorovicza family built the Racz spa in the capital, Budapest which is on the sight of a medieval healing spring. Then 200 years later a descendant of the Omorovicza family decided to take his wife to the baths in Budapest where they discovered how much better their skin was, so they called upon a Nobel prize-winning laboratory to take these healing waters and turn it into skincare. OmoroviczaCosmetics was born. I’m sharing with you today the AWARD WINNING Thermal Cleansing Balm.


Firstly a disclaimer, I’ve  never used a cleansing balm before in my skincare routine so I have nothing to compare this lovely product too. What I can tell you is that it’s…
