Style & Nutrition

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?

Best Buys Blanket Cape

Ihave a little secret to share.  My absolute must-have this Winter is the blanket cape.  You can forget about stuffing arms into tight jackets, overheating, creasing your silk blouse or ruining the all important aesthetics of your outfit.  The layering of each piece, the mix of textures and colours, as well allowing each item to show off and have a moment to shine is crucial.  It’s artistic, in fact, the outfit itself becomes a piece of art…actually let’s be brutal, fashion IS art.  The blanket cape is the ultimate ‘frame’ to your artwork.  I’ve selected my favourite blanket capes for you…so it’s time to sell on last year’s coats, make room in your wardrobe and get shopping....

How to style colour

Ifrequently come across the same fears and anxieties from women who are afraid of colour and struggle to style it in their day to day life.  Worries soar with the arrival of babies and the ensuing toddler years as your individual shape changes and the time you had to think about yourself transitions onto others. Individual style and your unique identity is challenged, you can’t wear half your wardrobe, pieces become uncomfortable, restrictive and quite frankly you'd rather just re-wear yesterdays outfit which handily lies by the side of your bed.  Finding the time and money to go shopping appears to be a thing of the past, you just want to get OUT THE DOOR, on time...

5 ways to wear a slip dress

The slip dress; it’s never really been ‘out of vogue’ since its Kate Moss heyday back in the 90’s, but is it truly back ‘in’ fashion?  Fortunately, todays slip-styling options are plentiful, layering over, under, any which way, dress it up, dress it down, stripes, fluff and simple t’s.  Now we aren’t all glamazonian models – so the burning question is, can the slip dress suit the bigger busted, more regular gals?
