As we officially enter into summer, we can safely say the sunshine is here to stay 😉

White is a great summer neutral tone that looks fresh and clean in the sunshine.

Here are my all white wardrobe essentials, they will take you through Summer effortlessly.

 

All white summer essentials:

 

  • White T-shirt/shirt:

The sunshine always adds a beautiful glow to our skin.

Nothing looks better in the sunshine than a chic white shirt or t -shirt.

  • White Jeans: are perfect in the sunshine and go with everything.

There is a myth that white jeans isn’t for everyone; not true.

White jeans is all about the cut and the fit.

When styling our clients, we ensure we decipher your body-shape shape, so you leave with a flatting fabulous pair of jeans…… or two 😉

White trainers are super cool, comfy and versatile in the sunshine.

Body confidence!

As we transition through different stages of life, our body shape changes and so does our style.

I am passionate about us loving and embracing our body shape irrespective of our size or proportions.

Our hair, eye and skin colours varies and so too does our body shape. Pear, apple, hour glass, athletic…the question is; which one are you and how best can you style it.

 

Here are a few tips on how to dress your body shape confidently:

  • Athletic – Go creative! Steer clear of flat boring plain clothes. Use patterns and textures to add shape to your style.

 

  • Inverted triangle – Let’s see your pins! Show off your long slender legs in knee-length shirts and dresses. Steer clear of maxi dresses and skirts

 

  • Hourglass – Keep your clothes fitted. Make sure you don’t hide your gorgeous curves under baggy clothes, show it off in tailored sculptured pieces.

 

  • Pear shape – It’s all about your waist. A belt is a key accessory in your wardrobe. Use it to accentuate and flatter your fabulous body shape.

 

  • Apple shape – Show off your gorgeous décolletage! Whether its a v neck or round neck, show your neckline and avoid polo necks and high neck tops and dresses.

 

** Win a FREE 121 Body shape Analysis consultation (worth £49) when you book Personal Shopping this Spring.

*Offer end 21st June 2018

10 lessons in 10 years of Business:

10 years ago in trepidation, on the 13th floor in my work office, I packed up my box to leave city working life to embark on the world of business and birth Potential U.
Here are a few lessons I’ve learnt along the way:

1. Network network network! The road to your own business can be very lonely. I remember in my 2nd week of business, I secured my first radio interview and none of my family or friends listened; I was distraught. With all my friends in 9-5 jobs, I realised I needed to be proactive, so I made a conscious effort to network with women who also ran businesses. I’ve made many business associates and some great friends along the way.

2. Be current. When I started out in business 10 years ago, Pinterest and Instagram didn’t exist. Technology and social media has evolved so much; it’s important to stay one step ahead of the game! I sought the advice of my mentee (who is a social media influencer), to update my social media skills. Stay current, be adaptable and keep on learning!

 

3. Passion pays! I am just as passionate about my business today as I was when I first started 10 years ago. I thoroughly enjoying helping my clients feel confident in their skin. Find your passion and make it work! Life is too precious to stay in mundane unfulfilling jobs. One of the most poignant words I heard at a business event was: ‘Have one foot in your dreams and one in reality’. I hope your dreams come true!

4. Be authentic. We are best at being ourselves, so be you. People buy people, so connect from your heart, but use your head too . Remember your valves and don’t lose them in this microwave world. I hold my values and beliefs very dear. I have managed to remain true to them despite numerous temptations and the fluid demands of the fashion/business world…..

 

5. Tenacity and perseverance! I’ve learnt that the road of business isn’t always smooth, it’s dotted with many highs and lows. As I have navigated this road, I’ve learnt to enjoy the highs, stand during the lows; knowing that they don’t last long. Business is indicative of life, so you need perseverance and copious amounts of tenacity.

6. Rest and relaxation! Coming from a 13year city career as an accountant, these words were foreign to me. I worked crazy hours in the city and continued like this when I started my business. I was determined to work hard and make it work. I remember going to my good friend’s wedding in the Caribbean in my first year of business, where I spent most of my time on the beach with my mobile checking my business emails and not enjoying the holiday at all. After running myself down and suffering from exhaustion, I have learnt to rest, use my out of office and work smarter. Now when I go on holiday, my mobile is the hotel safe, while I top up my vitamin D on the beach 

7. Ask for help and support. Still trying to master this one. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength and realising you can’t do it alone. Your friends, family, network of associates make up a village that help to nurture and grow your business.

 

8. Know your strengths and weaknesses. When you start out in business (irrespective of the industry) you will be everything: The accountant, salesperson, administrator, marketing and PR, etc. As you grow in business, learn your strengths and weaknesses, and delegate other roles to the experts. The perfectionist in me is still learning to let go 🙂

9. Serve your customers. Treat them with care, listen to their feedback, nurture your relationship with them and ultimately; serve them. Stats say that its easier to gain repeat business from your current clients, than to attract new clients. I never close off a job until I’ve heard my client’s feedback. It enables me to grow and make any necessary changes.

10. Be thankful! It’s a privilege to do a job I love and for 10 years. I’ve seen many people start in business who aren’t here today. I have met and styled thousands of clients over the years. I am invited into their homes to manage/detox their wardrobes (which is pretty intimate if you ask me). They trust me to take them shopping and to revamp their image. I am sought to deliver corporate presentations and style masterclasses. My advice is called upon by the media and fashion houses. If we look around us, there are many reasons to be thankful and I am exceedingly grateful for 10 years in business. Thank you!

Wardrobes ready…….

September is the start of all things new!

A new season, new collections, new term and perhaps new jobs and schools.…

It’s also time to say bye bye to Summer 2017 and hello to Autumn/Winter.

 

Here are a few wardrobe tips to help you welcome the new season in style;

1, Your clothes should make you happy, so declutter your wardrobe of clothes you didn’t feel good in, you don’t like or wear in Spring/Summer 17.

2, Best to make space, so swap your wardrobe. Pack away your holiday and summer clothes. Dig out your Autumn/Winter clothes: shoes, boots, outerwear and accessories.

3, Write a shopping list of gaps in your Autumn/Winter wardrobe that you will need for the new season.

4, To save time when getting dressed in the mornings, create different looks from the clothes you have, for your work, casual and social wear…

5, If the above tasks seem daunting, our trained stylist will happily help you declutter your wardrobe, create numerous stylish looks for the new season from your existing wardrobe and have you ready for Autumn/Winter effortlessly.

Client Emma’s feedback 25th April 2013:

‘Joy is amazing! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my experience.

It felt like a weight lifted from my shoulders after my Wardrobe Detox.

The Personal shopping was brilliant – so many amazing outfits to choose from. 

Joy just ‘got’ me and what I was looking for straight away.  I can’t imagine any other way of shopping in the future!

The Wardrobe management was also invaluable. Thank you so much.  Can’t wait to work with you again in the autumn (if I can wait that long!)’
