Wishing you a wonderful New Year! A new year, a new decade, a new chapter are all ours to create. Our thoughts become our reality, so wishing you lots of happy thoughts! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฅฐ

Iโ€™m sometimes asked if I can tell what season a person is when I meet them? I can tell usually when people are not in their right colours as they blend in and can often look washed out.
Itโ€™s an enjoyable process to go through to find your season and your Wow colours. And when you see yourself in them, you know itโ€™s right!
See the pictures here, you can see clearly which colours look best. In your right colours, you will look clearer, well put together and people will notice you. Look at some photos of yourself, youโ€™ll know if you are blending in or if youโ€™re being the best version of yourself. Youโ€™ll know if you always wear the same colours, and maybe itโ€™s always black, or grey or navy.
Itโ€™s easy to get to know your Wow colours for a relatively small investment. The priceless part, is knowing how to look good, having the confidence to buy a fabulous Winter coat or a dress thatโ€™s just that bit more expensive than you would have spent before, because you know youโ€™ll look amazing in it and will get lots of wear out of it. Once you have your colours done.. you just know! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

How many clothes do you need to have an amazing wardrobe? Not that many actually. See how Jenny is able to wear the same skirt and top and by changing outer layer and accessories can go from school run, to work, to an evening look. โค๏ธ
Knowing your colours, plus your personal clothing style will help you do this. ๐Ÿฆ‹
Then once you have the right pieces that suit your lifestyle, youโ€™ll have endless combinations. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ‹

Someone recently commented that I must have an enormous amount of clothes in my wardrobe as they never see me in the same outfit twice. Itโ€™s easy to create this illusion by changing the way you put your outfit together. Here Iโ€™m wearing the new Ponte pencil skirt in Gingernut and a Cara V tee in Soft White from @kettlewellcolours 3 different ways - going on the school run, going to work and going out for the evening. By simply changing my jacket, bag and shoes I can create 3 different looks. I know this because at House of Colour we teach you to shop less, buy better and accessorise effectively. #colouranalysis #personalstyle #style #colour #personalstylist #capsulewardrobe #everyonedeservestheirownpersonalstylist #fastdressing #simplicity

If you are planning a trip soon, give some thought to your luggage. So many people opt for black, but why not chose one in your best colours. I receive lots of compliments about this rose gold case (TK Maxx) and if itโ€™s plain you can always bling it up with a luggage tag. The one shown here is Ted Baker. Would love to see a photo of your travel luggage. Happy travels! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Roses from my garden. A beautiful soft pink, and one of my best โ€˜Summerโ€™ colours. So lucky to have found a coat in this shade! ๐Ÿ’—

These light weight jackets are a must have and thereโ€™s plenty of colours in all seasons at the moment. I snapped these photos in M&S and Next today. TK Maxx often has them, and this time of year the ski shops may have some on clearance so worth looking there too!
If you see one in your colour, itโ€™s so worth the money. They last for years, are easy to pack and can be accessorized to look smart casual and super casual too! ๐Ÿ’•

Iโ€™m currently at the hairdressers, and the lady next to me is 101! She is having her hair styled, her nails done and any stray hairs plucked away. Iโ€™m sure sheโ€™ll look amazing when the team are finished. ๐Ÿ’•
Whatever your age, those regular grooming appointments are essential elements to looking your best. Itโ€™s also nice to be pampered once in a while! So if itโ€™s been a while since you had your hair, nails and brow appointment - is now the time? You really are worth it!
As I was leaving I told her she was an inspiration. Her response? โ€˜What am I supposed to do, stay at home and go mouldy?โ€™ So my question to you is, are you allowing yourself to go mouldy?

(This is a stock photo of a women over 100!).

What to do on a rainy day? Go shopping with Mum at the Trafford Centre! Mumโ€™s looking for a new dress and knowing sheโ€™s a Spring, Romantic Classic means we know which shops to go into and can scan straight away to find her colours and try on those that are in her style. First a coffee stop!

April is finally here and it's time to put away those Winter clothes and get ready for lighter weight Spring clothes. A great opportunity to sort out your wardrobe too!

Holly talks us through getting ready in under 7 mins!

Would you like to get ready faster in the morning? Here are some tips to help you. It's all so much easier once you know your colours.

So when out and about where do you keep your essential make-up items - tossed in the bottom of your handbag or in a make-up case?

Why do I ask?

Well these are clues to your clothing personality which identifies the clothes and accessories best suited to you. Yes, part of it is your body shape and how you look on the outside, but there are clues in items such as your accessories which when pieced together with our House of Colour know how, helps me to identify the type of structure, sheen, shine and texture, pattern and scale you need in your clothes and accessories.

For example, this make-up case has a high shine finish and has bling in the bow and zip. It has a sturdy structure, an overall quality finish and is perfect for a 'Romantic Classic'. The pen also has a high shine/ bling look but with some details and a luxury feel to it.

The thing is, I know why I like it, and why it's right for me!

And this is what you learn at a personal style session.

You'll know what suits you and why, and learn how to pull those attributes into all items in your wardrobe. This means that when you are drawn to something while out shopping or you see something in a magazine or online, you'll know why you like it, and if it's really you or not. It's fascinating and as much about your psychology as it is about clothes.

Some women will not have a make-up case at all. And that's also clue to your clothing personality! There's no right or wrong, it's just about guiding and identifying who you are and how to translate this into how you dress.

I love this little Ted Baker case which happens to match my rose gold pen & iPhone! Rose gold is one of the best metals for 'Summer's and the case is a perfect colour! ๐Ÿ’•Ted Baker

This years Golden Globes saw female actresses stand together and make a statement in black. โค๏ธ
Oprah was amazing on so many levels! โค๏ธ #LoveOprah

Colour is a powerful tool to make a statement, celebrate an event, or raise awareness. Taking a uniform approach to using a single colour can emphasise that statement, take a look at this yearโ€™s golden globes as Hollywood stood in solidarity against discrimination by wearing black. #TimesUp

90 seconds is all you need with our super fast House of Colour make-up routine. Knowing your best colours makes it super easy too! Here's Sandy with her before and after fabulous 'Autumn' make-up. You don't need lots of make-up items - just the right ones!

As we approach 12th Night when all the Christmas docorations come down and are packed away until next year, why not put away any Christmas clothes too.
Festive jumpers, aprons and anything you won't be wearing until next year can be safely stored away making space in your in your life and wardrobe for the things you want and need! You'll thank yourself in 11 months time that you were so organised!

Yesterday I posted about the power of vision boards. They are part of my new year routine so I'm about to create a new one for 2018 and thought if you want to do the same, it might help so see an example.

To get started, imagine all the things you want to happen this year and then cut out magazine images to represent that. I use two pieces of A4 paper cellotaped together and glue on the magazine images with a Prit stick.

It's lots of fun to do and the key is to hang it somewhere where you'll see it everyday, and imagine what it will feel, look, smell and sound like when your dream has become a reality. Message me if you want some help. You literally can create your own future!

One of the joys of new year is that we are able to start fresh. New resolutions, holiday plans or trips to new places, maybe a new job, a wedding or a healthier lifestyle. It can help to create a vision board for your perfect 2018. When thinking about what's in store for your year ahead, imagine what you'll be wearing. It's amazing what can happen when you focus on what you really want. Wishing you an amazing year!

Wishing you a fabulous 2018! Let's shine!

Wishing you a merry Christmas! Enjoy this time with family and friends! If you need a last minute present I can send you and electronic gift voucher! Message me and Iโ€™ll get right to it!
And as Santa would say...
โ€˜Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! โ€˜ ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ…

Scottish family handbag firm feels the โ€˜Meghan effectโ€™ as orders soar

Looking for a new handbag, and love the one Meghan Markel was spotted with on her first public engagement with Prince Harry in Nottinham today? Strathberry, the luxury Scottish handbag company went straight to instant stardom and instant sell out! Here's a similar one! When Leeanne Hundleby decided, on impulse, to send Meghan Markle a selection of handbags just a fortnight ago, it was little more than a hopeful punt.

Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who look revealed

Interesting to see the new Doctor Who look created for Jodie Whittaker which has nods to the previous Doctors, most notable are the stripes in the sweater which are a throw back to Colin Baker- remember his striped scarf? โœ…

The creative team have combined 'Gamine' quirkiness to give Jodie a contemporary twist, which comes through in her chopped hair, ankle boots and braces, and 'Classic' tailoring in the coat, and lines created with the braces, lining and edging of the coat which give authority to her overall look. โœ…
These are โ€˜Autumnโ€™ colours too. โœ…
Overall - job well done to the Doctor Who team! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ The first female Doctor is wearing boots and braces as part of her costume.

Weโ€™re approaching the festive season. As the cabin crew say โ€˜Put on your own oxygen mask first before helping othersโ€™. Plan hair, manicure and brows appointments and add yourself to your โ€˜to doโ€™ list this year!

See Katie's before and after! Before she knew she was a Winter and naturally suiting cool and bright colours, she thought she was a Spring.

I see so many clients choosing make-up and clothes guided by their hair colour, but if their hair colour is wrong, then it throws out their whole look. This is why we take hair colour out of the equation and look at the fat cells under your skin and how they react to the the various precision dyed coloured drapes we use.

Once we know what goes with you, we can suggest any tweaks needed to your hair colour and make-up and of course your clothes. This creates congruence and you look together, natural, authentic and visible. Your purse will thank you too as you'll know what to buy, so no more wasted purchases hanging there with the price tags still on!

If you find you have nothing to wear, as your clothes, make-up or hair are somehow are not quite right, you may benefit from a colour analysis session. Afterwards you'll be very clear on what suits you which is so empowering. You'll know how to use colour to enhance your natural beauty. Knowing the right colour tones and intensity for you is priceless! ๐Ÿ’•

#TransformationTuesday consultant Katie Pretzel in Minneapolis, USA shares her colour story:
'Let's talk about wearing "your colors" and if it actually "works" like we say it does....This is what happens when a WINTER (me) tries to do life as a SPRING. Chaos ensues and it looks like I'm a yellow mess of colors. And then I discovered House of Colour and things got easier and much, much better. If this isn't enough reason to discover your season, WOW colors & best makeup, I don't know what is!' #knowyourwowcolours #colouranalysis #bethebestyou
