Inspirational Woman Update - Carol

It's been almost a year since our Inspirational Women 2020 photoshoot, so we have talked to Carol recently to see how she is doing.

When we first launched our 2020 Nicola Jane catalogue back in January, how did you feel seeing yourself in it?
 was really quite proud and have had some lovely comments from family and friends.

What have you been up to since the photoshoot?
We were able to visit New Orleans and New York before Christmas and it was amazing to see the differences between the 2 cities. I have started learning ballet for the over- 55s and continued my golf practice. I have also continued with gardening and planted lots of vegetables.

How did you spend/find lockdown? Did you take on any new hobbies or did you rediscover any?
We did a lot of walking on the South Down; a long promised Spring Clean got under way and kept in contact with friends on Zoom and WhatsApp – I have a friend who lives in Brittany and once a week we would WhatsApp each other with a tour of our respective gardens – although I could not physically travel it was lovely to “be in France” in the Spring!

Have you got any exciting plans for the rest of 2020 or for 2021? (obviously hoping that the current Covid-19 situation will improve)
A trip to Naples was cancelled in early March so that needs to be rescheduled when possible; I am very much hoping to go to Chelsea Flower Show in May 2021 as I was unable to do so this year. I also look forward to visiting the theatre and outdoor events again.

What is your favourite Nicola Jane piece and why?
My Hawaii tankini – it looks beautiful, is very comfortable and super flattering.

Do you have any tips or advice that you would like to share with other ladies? (maybe tips/advice that helped you regain your confidence)
Take as much control of the before and after process as you can or feel able to. Do not beat yourself up – it is not your fault that you got breast cancer.

If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Take pride in your life and what you will achieve.

Anything else you would like to share?
Thank goodness for Nicola Jane!
