SENSUAL WOMENS WORKSHOP
I am so happy to be offering this ground breaking workshop that encompasses not only the mental, emotional and physical aspects of ourselves but the deeply sensual part that craves to be acknowledged which has often been shut down in women. From my experience of working with many women, it is when a woman recognises this loss and wants to restore her feminine she will contact me, which we do together through the gift of clothing. colour and gaining a clear understanding of her body, mind and spirit.
Cathy Woods from @The Sanctuary of Ananada who teaches sacred sexuality of the feminine and Image by Jennifer are joining together to bring you some mind blowing and very powerful workshops that will work on re discovering your femininity and how you can keep it! Cathy is a incredibly knowledgable and nurturing woman who has an amazing understanding of the feminine energy in all her forms and outplays.
Discover who you are in clothing, style, shape, colour and chakras with me and who lies beneath with Cathy. This will be a truly Empowering Workshop and the first in a series.
Further details will be posted soon… woo hooo!! Exciting!!

Colour Me With Love
I have created a 7th style personality, each personality is equated to a chakra of the body. This gives my client and I a better understanding of the body asset block they are working with and which colours to focus on to really bring out their joy of clothing. This will be covered in my workshop, Woman In The Mirror, the first in the series of Empowering Women Workshops in August and September, click on the links below for further details.
I teach how to start to change this aspect in ourselves with colour as colour has its own unique vibration hence it can lift us i.e. wearing white. If we wear a lot of black it can have us feeling quite low.
I LOOOOOVE colour and I really enjoy working with it. I have seen firsthand the tremendous effect colour has on clients, I literally see them light up and take charge of their image.
Colour also means different things to different cultures i.e. in Asia a bride may well wear red, in Western Culture the conotations are completely different!!
So for colour fashion advice start exploring there are so many beautiful shades, hues and tints around with the colour blocking trend. See how it affects your mood for the day, if you can’t do it for yourself remember the colours we wear also affect those around us!
Love, grace and pink, beautiful, colourful women!

We can feel powerless over our bodies and so reject them.
We believe if only our body was smaller, thinner, younger we would be happy. Ask yourself is this really true? What would have changed inside of you to make this your reality?
If you have stretch marks from babies you EARNED them! EMBRACE them
If you feel you have body marks from losing weight remember they were hard won! You found COURAGE and DETERMINATION
If you have wrinkles you EARNED the WISDOM
If you have celullite look at your diet! Are you CREATING it?
If you have frown lines SMILE, you will feel better too
Most of all WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS.
I work with an array of body shapes, the common theme is how they feel, size has nothing to do with it!! I have seen a size 18 rock underwear in front of a crowd with confidence and love for her body, and seen a size 6/8 not want to show her legs by being unable to wear a skirt without leggings.
PERCEPTION IS THE KEY, YOU OWN IT!! Go find it with love.

In my job I hear many women speak very unkindly about their body, how would we feel if our best friend said those same words to us? Women today have come to view their bodies as a negative asset, even blocking off looking at certain parts of their body, they may see above the neck and below the knees but ‘blurr’ the part in between. How is it possible to dress a beautiful body if we can’t truly see it? AND Less than half of the women I work with have a full length mirror, usually because of the afore mentioned block, they don’t want to see it, perhaps even being too painful to truly look.
As socially responsible people when are we going to start seeing a true reflection of women in media so we are able to fully embrace our bodies as they truly are? Not some mythical creature from planet zero? If we were able to truly be ourselves in our own bodies, imagine the possibilities? Fun, creativity and play with clothing and colour without the restriction of a perfect body image which doesn’t really exist. Illusion works in so many ways, ask photo shop.
If we use the word should in a sentence relating to our body, it is tantamount to getting a whip out and lashing ourselves with it!!! I should lose weight or I should be a size 10, what messages are you sending yourself? A BIG one, you are never good enough!!! When will you be good enough?
I suggest you get a full size mirror, truly look at your body in the mirror and embrace it, I challenge you to look in the mirror and say ”I love you, I truly love you.”
Think of the work your body does for you each and every day and how hard it works for you, isn’t it time to love and honour it for it’s hard work instead of whipping it for what it is not? Be your own best friend, and begin to speak to your body with love and kindness.
Love, grace and compassion beautiful women

Make Up, Radiance? Professional Photo
- No Make Up Inner Radiance Taken By i Phone And Regular House Lights
“The most beautiful make up of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy”
Yves Saint Laurent
In a perfect world we would not need make up as people would be able to see our true beauty shining out, however our lives are so hectic we lose our spark, our radiance and look to re install it by artificial means……. What this does is to stimulate how we perceive ourselves, ie more attractive which allows us to begin to radiate our true inner selves. Read more…

Why aren't children afraid to look in the mirror?
Why aren’t children afraid to look in the mirror?As children we are quite fascintated by our reflection, we will talk to ourselves, pull faces, even KISS our reflected image. So what happens that can make it painful for us to love our image back? Read more…

Our image reflects our power
Power dressing, love it or hate it it works!!!
We are often confronted by what our image says about us, we may want to deny the reality of that as it means we may well have to review how we are dressing and so it goes into the too hard basket. However, I find when I have this conversation with most people or present it in a workshop it resonates with them somewhere even if it is unacknowledged on a surface level. Read more…

Now most of you probably have a LBD, (little black dress for those who aren’t awake yet), however how many have LBB, little black boots?
So there they were as smart, fun and funky as the day I first set eyes on them, I was hypnotised by the two tone suede/ leather, the golden interior and the handy side zip that made them a cinch to put them on I was Dorothy with my new red shoes, two clicks and I was off to nirvana!!! Read more…

Confidence In Colours
I am often observing the general public and how they dress when I am out and about, (not always at the shops you understand!!) I find some quite creatively inspiring people, now read the words again, creatively INSPIRING!!
The picture shows a woman who is very much using her creativity and love of colours, it may or may not be your prefered style. In my many years of experience it’s probably not your taste as we have become afraid of colours and long flowy dresses ever since we left the era of Lord Of The Rings! I absolutely applaude her confidence and sense of unique style, she is expressing herself for herself.
I say embrace colour!! One of my main talents in working with clients is to inject colour into their wardrobe, clients will often tell me they can’t find many colours out there or afraid to wear them. WELL I say it is Spring, so get your handbag, your bottle of water and ballet flats and go a hunting, the stores are loaded with popping colours, delishes textures and oozing style!! Makes my palate water!
My ab fab favourites at the moment are Karen Millen and Coast’s fresh and creative designs all the way from the UK.
BE BRAVE and GO FOR IT!!
