Attract the “One” with Style

Did you know there is one colour that could turn your date off? Or that just wearing a bright lipstick can make you more attractive?

Your next date is your chance to dial up the romance in your life whether your in a long-term relationship or on what you hope will be… your LAST first date 🙂 And I reveal all my tips here…

But there is a wonderful side-effect to taking your style up a notch!

Dressing to attract the “one” can boost your self-confidence too!! Just  taking an extra couple of minutes a day to put on some red lippy or a nice piece of jewellery can actually change the energy you are putting out and can help you attract better things into your life.

couple-919018_1920I learned that lesson myself when I was asked out on a date after work. At the time I worked in retail sales and though I dressed smart usually, that day I put on a cute blue pair of cropped trousers with a white halterneck. I felt fabulous!! The funny  thing was I actually had more fun at work and exceeded my sales targets too. I realised that wearing my nice clothes helped me attract a great day at work and even though the date didn’t happened that day – I had had great fun and felt fab!

If you’d like more love in your life then take a look at this video of my top tips to attract the “one” 🙂 with the added bonus of advice from Amie, The Dating Coach. I’ll reveal what to wear for a hot date based on the research and Feng Shui whether it’s a first date or date night with your hubbie or partner. Like what colour NOT to wear!!! And it might not be what you think!

My Favourite Looks…

January 18, 2016

My favourite looks from way back when…

Style is such a personal thing. Even though I studied fashion and style for many years that hasn’t changed the fact that what I feel good in is  more important to me than how it looks to everyone else. Here are some of my favourite looks over the years…

Scan_20150505 (13)1. Pastel Yellow Smocked Summer Dress worn with a white sun hat. I LOVED this look… it’s so fresh and cute. This is my best shade of yellow for my cool skin-tone and I have some tops in the same colour now. Pretty, isn’t it?

 

 

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (22)2. This was around the time Flashdance, the original movie was on – it was the 80’s and perms were in!! So, I got my first perm and I LOVED it. The striped shirt over a t-shirt was cool back then too. And a pale blue denim skirt – my look was complete!

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (10)3. I went to America for a few months and got this professional picture taken – with a pale pink round neck sweater, pale blue eyeshadow and lipgloss. Very girly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (12)4. This gorgeous “Debs” dress was made by my Mom – she used to make a lot of my clothes when I was much younger too. The velvet bodice felt so luxurious!!  I loved Winona Ryder at the time which is why I have my hair very short. The only down-side  was my nerves about ever kissing anyone with my braces!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (15)5. In the 90’s I went though my boho phase – long dresses with my Doc Martin boots and lots of texture like this button up woolen vest. My bead were wooden. It’s the all natural look. This photo was taken on the Staten Island Ferry in New York!

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (19)6. Later in the 90’s I had a more sporty look! This is a cute zip-up top worn over jeans… and look who I’m having my photo taken with… it’s the Queen of England!!

 

 

 

 

Scan_20150505 (11)P.S. Here is my school uniform – the royal blue jumper that I sometimes wore during my summer holidays is under my blazer. I was so excited and felt so smart in all new clothes and the beret too!
