What to Expect From a Personal Styling Session

What to Expect From a Personal Styling Session

There is always an interest and intrigue from people to know what a personal stylist does. So if you’ve been wanting to know what to expect from a personal styling session, I’m here today to share. I’m going to run through a list of statements and frequently asked questions I come by. If you still have a burning question be sure to leave a comment below or contact me privately about sessions if it’s a personal query or concern. “I’m not happy with my body, I’m not a model.” First thing I want you to know is that you are…

Are you feeling lost with your Personal Style?

Are you feeling lost with your Personal Style?

  I want to be the one to help if you are feeling lost with your personal style and self care. Being a mum to three crazy kids I understand how much it can be a challenge to prioritise self care let alone personal style. However I know first hand the profound impact making myself a priority and taking time  for self care, and  honouring my personal style has had on my life and my families growth and development. I have learnt through personal challenges and trauma that taking time for self care has been crucial to my overall well…

You don’t need to approve my beauty standards

You don’t need to approve my beauty standards

We live to in a world now days where the word BEAUTY appears to have a one dimensional definition. That definition being of course one where society as a general rule deems women’s appearance to be pleasant or not. It’s time to flip the power and say: YOU DON’T NEED TO APPROVE MY BEAUTY STANDARDS. With an ever increasing surge in positive body movements across the globe, it’s a powerful time to unite with others. In doing so you will not be alone as there are millions of others out there, wanting to regain their power too. It’s time to…

A Raw Unedited Look Inside My Wardrobe

A Raw Unedited Look Inside My Wardrobe

A regular comment I receive is how others would love to see inside my wardrobe. “I bet it’s a massive wonderland to play dress ups in.” What is surprising to most, is when I tell them that I haven’t kicked my husband and his clothing out of the wardrobe to accommodate my colourful collection of pretties. I love using clothes to express myself but I really don’t have a wardrobe that revivals movie stars. What I do have is a wardrobe of colour and pattern; pieces that make happy when I’m wearing them. Even though I have explained to many…

Why The Embrace Documentary Is A Must Watch

Why The Embrace Documentary Is A Must Watch

With there being a lot of talk about the positive body movement documentary, Embrace by Taryn Brumfitt at present, I’m eager to share my thoughts on why I think Embrace the documentary is a must watch. Last week I took myself along to an evening screening of the body image movement documentary. in fact it was the first time I have ever gone to a movie all by myself. I quite like my own company so I embraced the experience, and I’m so glad I did to absorb the message of the movie. In an attempted to make a start on…

Super Easy Way to Get Your Child Drinking More Water

Super Easy Way to Get Your Child Drinking More Water

Do you have a crazy child you worry about who needs to be drinking more water throughout the day? I do and it’s an ongoing issue and of particular concern coming into the warmer months, when on school days. When she is at home we can prompt and remind her and keep an eye on her consumption. Over at Healthy Kids it’s recommended that the daily water intake for a child of Sarah’s age be five glasses of water a day, which is around one litre. Healthy Kids has a breakdown of the recommended daily intakes for various age groups…

How to Celebrate Children’s Book Week at Home

How to Celebrate Children’s Book Week at Home

This years 2016 Children’s Book Council Awards have been announced and book week celebrations will run from the 20th of August until the 26th of August. If you have school aged children I’m sure you haven’t missed the news that book week is on its way, as there has been constant questioning and chatter about book week costumes in our house. Despite frequent questioning from the kids I have everything under control to fulfill their costume requests this year. I spent an hour this morning putting the finishing touches to the kids costumes and Cohen and Sarah seem thrilled with…

Day 14 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria…..

Today is the final day of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria. With today being Valentines Day it’s quite fitting to say that I have LOVED taking part in this challenge with Erica from Recycled Fashion. I love pulling together my outfits each and every day regardless of being on a style challenge. But the #newyearnewstyle challenge has certainly made me think about making the most of what you’ve got, when you’re taken down to ten clothing items for fourteen days. It really takes the distractions away and focuses your attentions on the possibilities there are with only what you…

Day 13 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

Woohoo it’s the weekend, we made it and hopefully you’re relaxing and enjoying some down time. I certainly am, after celebrating my father in-laws 70th birthday last night, champagne and wine flowed and whilst there are no sore heads here there are weary tired ones.  So there’s a lot of quiet and stillness going on with the kids playing with Lego and play-dough whilst periodically watching our new fish in their tank. Today’s combination is pretty relaxed and although you saw me don the denim skirt and polka dot tee earlier this week, I changed it up a little today…

Day 12 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

We’re on the home stretch of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria. It’s been a lot of fun joining in with Erica from Recycled Fashion. Let me tell you about today’s outfit combination. I have had a very intense morning and when I say intense it’s not been in an enjoyable way. To save you the details (of which are epic) let’s just say when it came to getting dressed this morning, I literally grabbed two items from my ten pieces from this challenge and threw them on. Thank goodness the combination works and is light and floaty whilst I…
