Looking Good, Feeling Great – Croydon Television production

Our great friend, Sandra Hutton-Miller is the host of this brand new lifestyle programme,

Looking good, feeling great, new tv programme with Sandra Hutton-Miller

to be broadcast on Croydon’s Community television channel.  CT’s Director Robin proudly informed us that community tv is very new to these shores but has been popular in the US for many years. Robin added that the channel’s broad aim is to entertain folk, aged 9-90, with a wide spectrum of programming that is tasteful and entertaining.

Today’s location was carefully chosen by Sandra to create a relaxed setting for the styling and lifestyle events; it took place in the leafy suburbs of Brockley, in an amazing Victorian villa. The grand piano that graced the living room, gilt framed art works, tasteful sofas and our flowers, became an inspirational metaphore for ‘Looking Good, Feeling Great’. And on the subject of flowers, Pasi dressed the rooms with vases filled with blue and purple delphiniums and lavender/plum coloured sweet peas. They made a colourful statement without distracting the viewer from Sandra and her guests.

Sandra is well known in the fashion industry for her own designs of accessories such as silk scarves but recently has developed a reputation as a fun-loving style guru. For today’s programme she and her styling team, a make-up artist and hairdresser, styled two female models for day and evening wear. Filming initially took place in the garden and between short intervals waiting for the sun to reappear – natural light was a bonus on this rather cloudy day, Sandra interviewed both stylists to give us some hints on what we should expect from the final reveal. Then armed with rollers, hairdryers, and their makeup bags, stylists and models retreated to their dressing room.

Meanwhile, the production crew, Sandra and the bystanders [Flor Unikon] trooped upstairs to the lounge to set up the next shoot with, nutritionist Fiona Coppard and fitness guru Donovan Miller. Sandra chatted to both about what keeping fit means for them and the importance of maintaining a daily balance of diet and exercise. Fiona spoke further about the ideal daily intake of proteins, carbohydrates and salads/fruits/vegetables. We were all taken by surprise by Fiona’s suggestions for healthy portions, i.e.  a handful of pasta, a fistful of protein, with liberal amounts of fruit/veg, and rationed amounts of fruits. The word ‘gluttony’ came to mind when we reflected on the king size portions we normally consume throughout our working day.

Sandra saved the best scenes till last. The reveal of the two models was fantastic. All the stylists worked wonders in transforming both models into chic and stylish women; making the most of their features with subtle make-up, re-styling their lush tresses and flattering their slim figures with garments in bold and neutral colours.

A big thanks to the production team for allowing us to be on set to preview today’s very first programme. The premier airing of the show is early next month and we would like to wish Sandra great success with this exciting programme.
