Why reinvention is natural and necessary, the benefits and how to
Just as nature trees loose their leaves to almost bare and blossom brilliantly and effortlessly
Are you following nature’s flow in your life?
Creating a new version of YOU. Why is it important to self-express who you are presently and at any given
Take a little moment and think back of the 2012 version of you. Think of the thoughts you were pondering, the type of challenges or life demands you were facing (i.e job, financial, home, relationship or personal changes). Now think of the 2011 version of yourself and so on and on. Now my question to you is: who is the REAL YOU today?
How much of the old you have you let go and still carrying around like a monkey on your back getting a free ride and making your life a lot heavier than needed?
Have you noticed that nature goes through incredible replenishing cycles? Rivers dry out and overflow. Trees loose their leaves to almost bare and blossom brilliantly and effortlessly. Animals shed coats and grow new soft and shiny fur. And with humans, not only our bodies go through dramatic changes but so does our personal soul.
Just as nature we must remember to shed the old and embrace the new and for us ladies, it is so important to not only embrace it but also to celebrate the heck of it!, as this is where our feminine power, beauty and grace rest.
Body perfection is not the foundation of high self-esteem!
Are you happy with your current mirror’s reflection?
Are you working out consistently or going from diet to diet and are still not happy with the results?
Do you magnify certain parts of your body and are unhappy with what you see?
Did you know that 8 out of 10 women and 4 out of 10 men are not happy with their current image?
Our bodies are beautifully wired and every thought, movement & emotion has a big part in forming ‘our’ self-image, which then creates as our self-esteem.
Body perfection is not the foundation of high self-esteem! Hmm, you ask. Yes, that is correct. Flick through your favourite magazines and you will find a number of celebrities who battle to match their own mental self-image. You would be surprised to know that in an interview with Nicole Kidman she talked a lot about how she wished to have looked differently; to have had more curves like Marilyn Monroe. In an interview with Cherlize Theron she said that she did not see herself as beautiful! Yes, it seems strange that most of these body-beautiful women are not content with their outer image.
Whether you want to change your body or just come to terms with who you are, isn’t it time to start accepting and embracing your body?
It is very rare that someone is 100% satisfied with their body. There will always be something we all wish to change now and in the future.
You often hear me talk about dressing to enhance and learning to flaunt ‘your’ assets and the art of optical illusion to camouflage those less flattering areas (which we all have).
So how can we begin to appreciate and accept our bodies just the way they are?
How to wear this season’s bright and loud colours.
Neons, baby tones, pastels, primary colours, dusty neutrals and more have all gathered together and decided to make a bold statement this Spring and Summer 2013.
With so much vibrancy and choice there is no wonder black clothing has been given the backrow in this season’s showcase. Let’s cover some simple and powerful tips to inject colours with loud confidence.
Tip 1: Get wise and Neonise.
The quickest way to give your wardrobe a style fresh-up is to invest in this season’s gorgeous accessories.
My tip is always to pick your favourite two colours that speak to you and buy a family of accessories.e.g. I am going to introduce this season’s yellow neon. I love It. Goes amazing with my skin tone (olive - cool unde and my Winter Colouring Palette. So this season I have bought the necklace, the slim belt, and I have the options to feature this colour with passion and subtlety with some neutrals.
So go wild and play this season. Getting dressed every morning should be a fun empowering experience. See clothing as another expression of your greatness!Need help to wear this seaon's colours? Colour Express is back. save $125!

Today I am inspired to talk about how much we value our lives. I often hear “live like there is no tomorrow”. However, it never seems to grasp you until you hear about a sad story or how someone had their life turned upside down.
I truly hope that neither you nor I have to experience one of these 'life shock' to finally get the meaning of "living your day like it is your last”.
Living a juicy life does require us to shift our perspective about what truly matters against what doesn't, letting go of the unnecessary stress and creating new habits that truly make our heart sing. I pondered on the habits I will have to let go if I want to "live my days as their where my last" . These are some of the habits that came up for me:
1. Remember not to sweat the small stuff
The times I get caught up on the insignificant when I could just shrug my shoulders and let it all go. In reality, if my life ended tomorrow would you be bothered by half of the things that get under our skin?
2. Take more breaks through life
I can’t imagine someone at the end of their life saying “I wished I had worked more, kept the house cleaner, was more perfect”. I wonder what we would say instead?
3. Celebrate my wins but also cherish my down times
Stop judging myself. With this career I have learned to accept and love others unconditionally. However, I still see myself with critical eyes when frustrated when life doesn’t work out like planned”..
I wonder how could you bring new awareness that will make your life delicious?
Whatever they are let’s not wait until such life review to live a juicy life!
PS. Thank you Wendy for your inspiration. You have reminded me again on what is truly important

Everyday you are given the chance to appreciate YOU
How amazing it is to wake up and be inspired by your wardrobe combinations, knowing that each garment you pick delicately drapes your body and helps you adorn the beautiful woman that you truly are. Clothing is your most intimate environment, and your home is second. We spend a lot of time and money decorating our homes so it reflects our personality and translates who we are. However, we only invite into our home the people that we like while the whole world gets to see you everyday.
So take each piece of garment as an intricate piece that represents you. Wear colours that enhance you, nourish your body, and make you glow. Choose fabrics and styles that embrace your shape against wearing baggy style to hide it. As a client so adequately said “women are wearing clothes that block our femininity”.
If you take a little look around the majority of women look like walking rectangles, using clothing to hide the parts they do not like instead of dressing to enhance. How much appreciation do you give yourself through clothing?
So why not bring new awareness and energy to your life and make a commitment that from now on you will only drape your body with clothing that makes you feel yummy.
Every morning you are gifted with an opportunity to celebrate YOU!
