Who are you?
I am a Personal stylist | Image consultant
Tell us about your business.
I work with individuals who want to finesse their professional look or give a chic edge to their out-of-hours wardrobe. Someone going through a life transition who needs a new look, wardrobe detox, or even has a b’day coming up and needs to look incredible.
I work with many mums who are ready to reclaim their style and independence again, as well as busy women & men, who can’t be bothered, don’t have the time to go shopping.
I love working one on one with men and women from all walks of life who want to develop their personal style.
I also work in the commercial sector on projects including commissions, fashion shoots, and designer look-books.
What inspired you to get started?
I was always helping out friends for special occasions and would have friends reach out to me for style advice. I enjoy the process and helping people and with my love of fashion, it came in hand in hand. It was always something I had in the back of my mind; I took the plunge and haven’t looked back.
What is your main goal?
To empower women/men to look and feel good from the inside out. Build that extra confidence, enhance their potential and add extra shine.
What has been your greatest achievement to date?
As a working mum, how do you find the calm in the chaos?
Surrendering to the chaos I find challenging. I try and accept the messy parts of parenthood. Stop, breathe and remember this will pass. I am getting better with being present and remembering to stay calm.
During the times when you feel overwhelmed or lacking in motivation, what helps you get back on track.
Journaling, I find penning my thoughts always helps me, meditation and exercise. Other times I just need to be and give myself the time to recoup and get myself back on my feet
Who or what inspires you?
My mother, her strength, warm and the love of her family is immeasurable. A positive force and nothing is ever a problem. Strong, hard working independent women also inspire me.
What do you do to relax and unwind?
Sit still, long baths with magnesium salts, meditate
What advice would you give your younger self?
Love yourself, believe in yourself and you are enough!
What is your life motto or positive affirmation?
Expect nothing, appreciate everything
Have you ever had disappointment or setback that ended up leaving your to something wonderful?
As heartbreaking and painful my divorce was I grew as a person through the pain. Loosing yourself and hitting rock bottom via attempting to bury the pain as a coping mechanism eventually served me in a good way. I needed to climb out of the sadness and what was happening, start reclaiming myself and shifting my sense of self. Through this is how I decided I wanted to help people: I have always had a love of fashion, style comes naturally to me and helping people reclaim their style, to look good, feel good from the inside out, get their confidence back and start shining again is my mission.
What do you like to do with your free time?
Read, art galleries, quality time with good friends, exercise.
