I want my age to be visible and celebrated in Fashion and Beauty so I when I was asked to join in with Willowberry Skin in the #agewithoutapologypledge to raise awareness and hopefully bring about change to the words and emphasis put on anti ageing!

I have to be honest I never used to plan for my working week and I'd get to the end of each day and feel like I hadn't made any progress at all - it was so frustrating! I felt like a runaway train! I was trying to do everything, going at high speed and getting nowhere! Anyone relate?

Are you a planner or a dreamer! I used to be a dreamer, I’d make new years resolutions but by mid January they’d gone out the window and that’s because they were usually made on whim with a glass of festive cheer in my hand and no real plan or goal ! As a style and confidence coach I now help clients get clear on who they are and how to become the best version of themselves inside and out .

Let’s talk Jeans: Skinny v Baggy ? Although I’m never convinced the skinny will lose its popularity, we are definitely moving on ...
