I had dinner with my friend Georgie (who owns Dragonfly in Shanghai) at the week-end. He is a spa expert and I asked him what he thought the best facial was for a face that needed a bit of help: mine! I told him, “I exercise my body and it keep my muscles in place, but what can I do to keep the muscles of my face in place too?” I told him, “I don’t want them to droop either.” He invited me to have one of his anti-aging facials at Dragonfly using a RF machine (radio frequency) and I have to tell you: IT WORKS!! Check out this picture below from this site. These are pictures before and after a woman had 6 months of RF facial treatments.
I took the pictures of my face before and after 1 anti-aging facial at Dragonfly. The weird thing was how my face felt the next few days… I felt my cheeks had lifted and were firmly back in their original place!
This below is a picture of what the treatment at Dragonfly in Shanghai China costs. If for nothing else – it is a lovely way to relax and having a woman massaging your face for 90 min.
A big thank you to Georgie for my new perty face and people who are reading this and do not live in China: find out what facials uses a RF machine at your local beauty therapist and get a natural facelift of your own.
I always like going into supermarkets when I visit different countries to see what the quirky differences are. In Turkey they sell a lot of self-waxing kits. In the USA I found aisles filled with plastic slabs (the size of cushions) containing breakfast cereal ( often multicolored). In Fiji I found canned sheep and missionary workers.

Below is a man who sweeps our streets. He makes his own brushes from the fallen branches of the trees.
I was on my bike and stopped to take this girl’s picture.
This was a sales assistant.
Laundry hangs everywhere.
This was in my local paper. I liked their enthusiasm & lipstick.
I am now hooked on Instagram. You can find me there.
I often think I live in a Chinese Coronation Street. My sweet gray-haired neighbor decided to perm and color her hair yesterday. This below is another groovy neighbor who lives on the other side of me.
My neighbor knitted me these divine slippers. I found the baby ones you can see below and I asked her to copy them for me – but bigger.
Shanghai China is a great place to buy wool if you love to knit too. You can buy enough, good quality wool to knit a jumper here for about $5 u.s.
If you prefer to buy the soft cuddly goods instead, buy some cashmere sweaters here. Below, you will find a business card. Phone them as they have just opened a new shop closer to the center of town. Philippe Le Ber do great styles, they manufacture for the big named brands and you can get a good cashmere jumper from one of their outlets for under $100 US.
In China I see a lot if eyelashes on cars and I think the idea should spread globally.
Or what about a pimping your wallpaper in a small bedroom or toilet?
I found these pet beauties in Shanghai yesterday. I loved the pink collar and the mum was as cute as her dog too… but she didn’t want me to photograph her.
These cats were not dead and stuffed, just snoozing.
My neighbor’s dog with her new pink friend and dog and cat homes for sale.
This is a fun tourist thing to do in Shanghai. I see people in these and they’re always smiling. Make sure you visit the French concession as the views will be fascinating and fabulous.

Buy your eyeglasses here, they are REALLY CHEEP! Make sure you bring your prescription, or they can check your eyes at the shop. The eye glass market here is massive, but I have attached Lisa’s card below ( in English and Chinese). I always go to her. Print it out and give it to a taxi, you will end up at a door, go in, find the lift and go up to the fourth floor. When you find Lisa’s shop and if you can’t find some frames you like: you really need your eyes tested!
To buy reading glasses they are about 100-1500 RMB and if you want a really good name (??? know what I mean – 300 RMB). They, also have prescription swimming goggels ( about 100 RMB about $15 US) and contact lenses in all colors ( about 70 RMB). Go wild, get different glasses for each room of your house.
On the 3rd floor below the eye glass market is the wedding market… I will post on that later.
