Style is a very personal thing


Some people seem to be born with instant style, others create their own through years of trials and tribulations, but eventually we all find that look that we imitate on a daily basis and can often be to afraid to change.

Not matter what your style, its cant just be bought, it has to come from within.

To quote Miss Chanel.. ‘Fashion fades, only style remains the same’, with that you can develop a sense of style by experimenting with the good, the bad and the downright ugly.

Firstly, let’s clarify something, there are clear differences between Style and Fashion, one will outlast the other. Fashions are fast and changing, they have distinct trends to draw their audiences into a spending frenzy! Style is created by the wearer; you get a feeling for what suits, you wear the clothing, it never wears you. To become a style icon of the 21st Century you would have to have a limitless bank balance and an uncontrollable compulsion to obtain every fashion item at its inception, so as not to appear outdated. For me, that’s a wasted life.

I style myself with some simple classics; the staples and the one item individually might bore you but when themed together capture the essence of your character right down to its core.

The Basics:

Classic Coat that can me worn with many outfits, trousers, skirts and dresses.

Denim jeans that have a classic fit, either straight or skinny, high waisted or just on the hip. Ensure they can be worn with a variety of tops.

A Blazer of sorts. Now this can be your classic Office single breasted or you more chanel inspired cut.

Your blazer should have good tailoring and be structured enough to be worn with either trousers, jeans or a simple skirt.

That Little Dress ( I wont say Black but one that suit you) for many occasions, funerals, dinner dates, office meetings. The dress can make or break an occasion so always have one suitable when accessorised with the right blazer, coat or cardigan.

A crisp White Shirt. This is a must I can’t emphasize the importance as worn with a pencil skirt has a fabulous chicness or themed with jeans creates a lovely relaxed casual look. Either way it’s an essential item for your wardrobe.

Keep your style personal to you, don’t try to imitate a celebrity or idolize a social icon. Draw your style from what suits your body and shape. Experiment on shopping trips by trying on outfits and taking a picture in the changing room; then look back at the picture, how does it make you feel, do you like how you appear. Sometimes when we view what others see we can develop a good sense of self by knowing what suits our shape and what enhances your best features.

Make your style unique to you, wear shoes you can walk in, not just for show. Put on decent underwear. I can not express this enough! Your undergarments can make or break an outfit. Have suitable bras for different tops. There is nothing wrong with ‘big knickers’ they can hold in a multitude of sins and create a seamless flow under that sleek fitted dress. Spanx have revolutionised dress fittings. Holding in any lumps and bumps in all the right places whilst creating the perfect silhouette. I love mine and won’t be giving up any time soon.

So ladies and gents, when it comes to style it is really up to you to find your own. You can seek influences from the fashion magazines, online and shop window; but often I have found its your friends and family who ultimately have the biggest impact on how your style develops. From birth, to infanthood, teens to your twenties. Your rebellious years are your finest hours. Your years of self-consciousness have shaped the style you rock now but again you can change at any time. That is how you own who you are, constantly revolving and leaving them uncertain.

Make your style you own and OWN IT!!

Ladies as the sun approaches we must all get ready for some fine grooming, so with this mind I have put together the basics of beauty care which can all be done at home ,cost savvy and very effective.

Today Let’s start with ………FEET

For the love of Jimmy & Choo, please refrain from exposing feet if less than perfect. When I say perfect please don’t take it personally, I simply mean nails clipped, heels buffed and toes polished (if that’s your preference). But exposing Hovest Crust and trying to jam those toes in pretty shoes will not compliment your look, if anything it will draw the view closer to your imperfections.

So with this in mind, here goes the simple step by step to pretty feet.

1. Buy the right size shoes.. ok ,ok, ur a size 10 but squeezing into a size 5 will only draw attention to the bumps on ur feet.

2. Wash feet daily, even if not exposed, dry in between toes and apply a powder or cream to stay fresh.. spraying perfume in ur shoes will only send out ‘puff puff’ as you walk and you will kill people when the floor heating in the car comes on!!

3. Go shops like Sam’s 99p, and get the following:

Small washing up bowl 99P

Nail clippers (come with files, FREE)

Files (pack of 5) 99p

Heel buffer 99p

Foot cream (99p too)

Clear or Colour nail polish (99p for 2)

£4.95 less than a fiver and you save 5p for the charity bag

4. At home, remove old polish ( last years that you keep re-covered again and again) , fill bowl with warm water add some Radox ; sea salt or other bathing liquid ( good for your skin, good enough for your feet to).

Soak feet for 15 mins dry off in between and use the heel buffer to remove dead skin, soak again and clips toenails, soak in clean water to rinse. Dry completely.. once done apply generous amounts of cream to feet, massage in to heels, toes and soles and put on fluffy socks so feet absorb cream.. and rest.. arrhh… Polish can be applied later if required but soft feet are a must.

 

M&co-sandals

Closing notes.. It is  a criminal offense to put crusty feet in pretty shoes, so please ladies don’t get caught slipping out there.. There are gentlemen checking on your toes.. remember that.

Hello Beauties.

I hope your week has been productive so far. I must say ,mines began slow but started to take pace today and I’m enjoying the journey so far. With that, I’m sharing my love for all things girly and Pink.

Searching the web for inspiration and one colour keeps popping up and that the ‘faithful’ and reliable sister Pink. Season after season we are told which trends are coming before we have the chance to embrace what’s current! But one thing always certain is the stable for a Spring is always based with a hint of Pink. So I gave put together a montage of my inspiration and take on blending Blush Pink with my best friend Black, I can’t help but throw some in.

So I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration yourself.

Loving you, loving me xoxo

Welcoming 2016 with vigour


‘Resolutions are made in just, not to be forsaken but to be realised with purpose’

Hello My beautiful Followers,

Firstly ,welcome back after the holiday, my post is delayed but I have had a busy start to 2016 and time ran completely away with me. But I’m sure most of you, if not all started the year with much vigour and determination.

This year for me according to the stars is the year for business, relationships and much more. Now I take much of whats forecasted for us Sagis with a pinch of optimism and hopefulness. For anything that will be fruitful will ultimately be down to hard work, commitment and drive. I have all in abundance and much more.

So with the above in mind, my blog this year will take a new focus. Fashion and Lifestyle joys will still be my love but as I’m starting a new business, I will be posting little pieces of my work, which I would welcome any feedback on.

2016 is the year of prosperity and with this I wish you all a very successful year ahead, try something new, be brave in your decisions, make less excuses for your failing and be more Kind. For me this is the most important. Kindness heals all woes, so be kind along the way, open up, listen to others, share good fortunes, be generous both with your time, love and emotions.  Lets make this year one of spiritual enlightenment that embraces diversity and grow the love bank that embraces the world.
