Top 10 beauty tips

Iwas bullied at school for having freckles and chicken legs. It still rings in my head: ‘Freckle Face, Chicken Legs’.  Her name was Phillippa. I can’t remember her surname. But if I did. I’d tell you. Being bullied for the way you look has infinite legacies and the strain of not letting the past define your ‘now’ requires meaningful and transformative thinking strategies.  And now?  Social media has given us a canvas to paint our lives through whichever eyes we choose.  We can choose to be who we want to be and how we want to look, but we need to remember that who we want to be, may change daily.   And that’s ok.  We have to be...

How to wear purple? The question on everyones lips this season as we start craving a little bit of sun & fun in the madness of all this snow.  So, purple is the colour du jour this year. Your outfits need to look sugar coated and sprinkled with mystical references particularly because purple hues like indigo and violet represent a higher level of thought and inner meaning.  Indigo is the colour of wisdom, relating to your ‘third eye’; your sixth sense.  It promotes clarity to your sense organs; hearing, seeing and feeling, and even helps you connect with your intuition.  Violet has a very short wavelength and as you absorb violet into your hormonal system it can aid meditation, transporting...

It’s hard to find time to self-motivate at the start of a new year…’busyness’ is becoming so prevalent in today’s society.  Many don't know that the greatest enemy of good thinking is ‘busyness?’.  We must find the time to think and learn, to make those crucial steps to improve our health and wellbeing from the inside and from the outside.  We spend £125 servicing our cars each year, well what about spending it on a body MOT at our Wimbledon Style & Nutrition event at HDV Cannizaro House on Sunday 28th January?

It’s one of the greatest debates and I frequently find myself squashing objections. Some think it’s not for the ‘petite’, too overdressed for the office and certainly a no-no for weekend wear.  BUT the maxi can be ALL of these things to you, and more – it’s an extreme...
