If you can't get to me in Nottingham I have online versions of colour analysis and my personal styling services. Check out my services tab for more details.
I live in Nottingham with my husband Paul and our blended family that consists of my teenage son, Paul's daughter and our crazy French bulldog, Ruby. I love pink, glitter, leopard print and flamingos.
I spent 7 years working in prison and have met Sir Richard Branson several times. (Stories for a different time lol - I'm currently working on the book.)
I like camping (particularly in nice weather). I am a competent knitter and can crochet and yes, I'm a WI member; when I first moved to Nottingham I lived with a part time drag queen over what used to be a sex shop!
I’ve spent a lot of time in hospital because of a dodgy hip which was finally replaced when I was 46. My ambition is to be on This Morning with The Schofe!
I graduated from Loughborough College of Art with a BA Hons in Textiles and Fashion. I then worked as a designer, creating printed fabric for the fashion industry and in the specialist area of the colour forecasting industry, predicting trends.
My design work was distributed in many High Street stores including Miss Selfridge, Oasis, Burtons, Dorothy Perkins, Marks & Spencer, BHS, Littlewoods, Monsoon and Next; as well as many American brands. I then moved on to become a college lecturer teaching others how to design.
I'm also a qualified make-up artist, a member of the Professional Speaking Assocation and Federation of Image Professionals International and also feature regularly as a "Loose Lady" on BBC Radio Nottingham and can be seen every now and then on Notts TV.
I'm not your typical image consultant, personal stylist, colour consultant, personal shopper or style coach. There's no judgment or fashion police - just compassion and fun combined with over 30 years experience!
I work with successful, confident women who are recognised experts in their field; women who want to experience that same level of confidence in their style so they always look on point and feel fabulous. I help my clients define and understand their personal style so they feel confident and the best version of themselves every day, taking the stress out of getting dressed.
You have an important event coming up or maybe you need to create the right first impression. Finding the perfect outfit takes you ages, you trawl the shops or spend your precious time online. And, when you've decided, you start to have doubts.
It might be a little niggle about whether it's really 'you'. Or you're wondering if it makes your bum look big or whether red is your best colour. Perhaps you're concerned that your outfit might be too formal/informal. Or it could be that you don't quite look the part and this could impact how you're perceived and ultimately, your fee.
Getting your personal style and image nailed will free up your head space and allow you to concentrate on what you're really good at, reassured that you look the part (whatever that means to you). It will mean that you know which colours and styles suit you best, how to accessorise and make the most of your features but without it all taking up loads of your precious time.
I've refined the 4 key elements to personal style and teach others my formula. It's straighforward and effective, learning my methods will help you feel confident that you are expressing your identity and reflecting your message cohesively.
I'm on a mission to style successful women so they look good, feel fabulous and can go conquer the world!
