Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to the new year? I certainly did.

I'm kicking off the year with some research into what you want your style to be. I do hope you can spare a few minutes to answer my short survey (it shouldn't take you any more than 5 minutes). You'll find the survey here. I'll really appreciate it. It will help me keep creating content and services that are of most value to you.

I love this time of year. Like many I take time to review, plan and re-energise.

It's summer here in Sydney and my husband, Kim, is off work for most of January. I'm working part-time seeing a few clients and preparing my services and systems for the year ahead. I'm also taking time-out to walk and swim with Kim just about every day!

To start this off I'm adding a new Style Transformation programme.

Do you make new year resolutions? Do you keep them? Here's what I now do.

If you've visited my website recently you'll notice that I've finally rolled out the new look-and-feel -- woohoo! I hope you like it? If you spot anything wrong do let me know (I've already been told that my mobilization--on smart phones--isn't working as it should, so I'm working on that). Near the bottom of most pages you'll see a Comments section. Do let me know what you think there. I will respond.

Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Until next month, all the best

My Theme for 2015

theme for 2015 - flourish

Starting last year, instead of a new year resolution, I identified a theme for the year. It started after I read numerous blogs about making new year resolutions and how difficult it is to stick to them. Then I read about a fellow image consultant deciding to try a theme for the year instead of a list of resolutions. This struck such a chord with me that I decided to try it.

My theme for 2014 was 'to become more creative', in all areas of my life. I like the progress I made. It came out most strongly in my wardrobe work, both with clients and in my own wardrobe. However, it's also started to spill over into my home decoration and my website too!

Long after I would have forgotten about any new year resolutions I've remembered my theme! So I'm establishing a theme again this year.

My theme for 2015 is 'flourish'. To grow and prosper. I will apply it to my business, my personal life and it's my wish for you. In helping you transform your style I truly believe you'll flourish.

NEW! Style Transformation Programme

rachel zoe quote

I love this quote attributed to Rachel Zoe. It's so true! The thing is our clothes speak about us whether we want them to or not. What do yours say about you? That you're too tired and busy to spend time on your appearance? That you're old fashioned? Or that you're successful, in touch with what's current, and having fun?

I'm introducing this service to ensure my client's achieve the style transformation they're after. If you don't love the outfits you wear. If you hate shopping. And if you've resolved to upgrade your style this year, then this service could be what you're looking for.

We'll start with the style basics of your best colours, and the styles that work best for your body shape, personality and lifestyle (described in more details here). Then, over the course of a year we'll transform your wardrobe, starting with the current season. Dependent on what we find in your wardrobe this may involve: altering clothes to suit you better; getting rid of clothes that simply don't work for you; combining clothes and accessories in new ways; and shopping trips.

We'll make sure that new purchases work back in your wardrobe. And I'll show you how to create outfits you'll love for every area of your life. We'll record these outfits so you know exactly what to wear when.

This service is so new it's not on my website yet, but if you'd like to know more reply to this newsletter and let me know.

Last year I informally started providing this programme with many of my clients (both here in Sydney and, using technology, elsewhere in the world as well). And they're telling me they love the results!
