Which Colour Season Are You?
Have you always wondered what your colour season is?
Your colour season determines which colours flatter you the most.
Wearing your best colours bring your natural appearance to life and enhance your skin, eyes, and hair. When wearing these colours, you will find that you don’t need a lot of makeup - a fabulous colour reduces imperfections such as dark circles under your eyes, lines, and discolouration while bringing out a healthy complexion. You’ll appear bright and awake.
Having this knowledge is great when you are developing your personal colour palette. But finding out which colour season you are can be tricky.
There are 4 seasons
Undertone plays a big part in the analysis!
Do you suit warm or cool colours? This answer will depend on whether your features have warm or cool undertones.
Do you suit light or dark colours?
Do you suit highly saturated colours or greyed-out ones?
You can look like your friend or family
members and can be in completely different seasons.
I always get asked ‘Can you tell my season from just looking at me?’
The simple answer is no.
I need to drape and do a complete colour analysis.
Do you want to know what season you are?
The only way to truly tell is to have a professional Colour Analysis.

At the beginning of lock down, we slipped into joggers, pulled on comfy jumpers and rejoiced in not having to make an effort. But as time has passed along working from home with video calls has become the norm - our wardrobe needs have changed! Our usual go-to pieces are no longer suitable and we are left with fresh wardrobe dilemmas.
You want to arrive at a Zoom meeting, making the best impression you can, just as you would in a regular face to face scenario. Even more so in some instances as we have a smaller window in which to perform.
My top tips for looking your best on zoom-
1-Good lighting in front of you as this will ensure you are clearly seen and you are not a shadow in the corner.
2-Appropriate/relevant background will form a part of who you are. Think about what you want to say about yourself. (virtual backgrounds are great if your house is not tidy)
3-Position yourself as a newsreader does, within your screen. You (head and shoulders) should be the dominant feature.
4-WEAR COLOUR! Wearing your best colours on Zoom will make you look radiant and stand out for all the right reasons.
Do not wear the same colour top as your background of you will blend in (If you have white walls do not wear white)
Regardless of whether I’m seeing anyone, I always feel better and much more motivated if I feel I look half decent.
Do not forget YOU are your personal branding and that is very important in your business and personal life. 'Dress for the life you want'

The New Year is a time for new starts and resolutions for many of us.
I am a great believer in putting in that little bit of effort can make a huge difference to our moods in such a positive way!
I’m not talking about full hair and make-up to attend the school run, but with a little thought and forward-planning it can actually be really easy to regain a bit of your sass and style again, but most importantly FEEL, like YOU.
You may already be rolling your eyes thinking ‘I don’t have time for that’ but you really DO! You just need a few key items and a little know-how.
Here are my top tips to help set you on the right path:
Only keep items in your wardrobe that work for your body shape. Get rid of anything that doesn't fit or doesn't suit your lifestyle anymore.
2. Add Colour
Colour is an instant mood-lifter and can completely change your complexion.
If you have not had your colours done then I would highly recommend booking a consultation with me and you will fall in love with wearing colour and learn what colours work best for you!
Organise your wardrobe and drawers so that you can see as many of your clothes as possible and store them neatly. This way you’ll wear more of the clothes you own as you won’t forget about anything that may be lurking at the back of the wardrobe.
The New Year definitely offers us an opportunity to approach things differently, so for 2021 why not take inspiration from the above and set yourself some style resolutions that will help you rediscover your sass, style, smile and most importantly confidence!

Since Corona virus started you may have noticed a new accessory in your wardrobe.
The FACE MASK.
I wanted to do a post on how to have fun with them!
For the foreseeable future, when spending time away from your home, face masks are going to be a constant accessory. You’ll have your face covered when entering different places and events.
Masks are serving a critical service right now during the corona virus pandemic, but how do you bring fashion into the equation, so you feel a bit more excited about wearing one?
Here are a few ideas for you.
1-Pick Out a Mask Like You Would a Scarf. If you wear a specific group of colours (After a Colour Analysis), stick with that colour palette.
2-A Mask for Every Occasion. Just like we have accessories we wear for different occasions the same logic when wearing masks.
3-Make It Pop! Do you wear mostly neutral colours? This season, your mask can be that fun pop colour in your outfit.
Why Not Let Your Mask Make a Statement.
Think about a colour that will bring out your eyes e.g complimentary colours!
I hope this has helped you think twice when purchasing a face mask. HAPPY SHOPPING!
