5 Stylish Ways to Love Yourself

Dressing, Looking Hot


Ah February. The month of love. Red hearts, Valentine’s and Cupid’s little arrow. What better time to love yourself than this? Whether you have a significant other or a loved one to dote upon or not, a little self care and pampering should always be on the menu. We all know that when you take care of yourself first, you’re better able to take care of those around you. Besides, who doesn’t like a little spoiling every now and then. Whether soaking in a bath, hitting the spa or indulging in your favourite meal is your idea of a little self love, as a Personal Stylist, mine always involves clothing.

The Single Most Important Investment

Looking Hot


Rent needs to be paid, car needs new tires, kids needs braces. House needs cleaning, dog needs walking, groceries need to be bought. Sound familiar? With so many things taking our time and money, it’s hard to contemplate investing our resources into just one more thing. Yet when it comes to looking and feeling good, the single most important investment you need to make is in yourself. Some people have no problem investing in themselves – taking much needed time to recharge, spending a little extra on the things they love.
