Describe yourself in a few key words…
I find these sort of questions a bit tricky so I asked some friends to help. This is what they said about me: Considerate, calm, approachable, positive, kind, thoughtful, loyal, creative, spontaneous, fun and a good listener. If you ever need a bit of a lift, I would advise you to ask your ‘close’ friends to do the same. What a tonic!
What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I have always loved clothes and putting outfits together and started an on-line course as a hobby. I soon realised I had a real passion for it and wanted to take it to the next stage. I went to a talk on ‘How to be a Personal Stylist’ hosted by Emmeline and Michelle Lee of Myfashionable40s. I was so inspired by the amazing group of ladies that I had to sign up immediately for Emmeline’s Personal Styling course and I’ve not looked back!
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the smile on people’s faces when they feel good about themselves. I’ve also trained in some areas of life coaching and plan to do more of that as I love combining style with life and motivational skills to help people improve their lives.
What inspires you?
People! I am energised by spending time with other positive and enthusiastic people, anyone that wants to make the most of life and anyone that keeps on going through adversity. I love nice surroundings even if it’s just a few candles creating a warm atmosphere. If I go to a restaurant, the ambience is more important to me than the food!
What are your favourite brands & who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
I will shop anywhere and everywhere! I love picking up something nice in a shop where you don’t always expect to and for that reason I love TK Maxx. I also love Zara, Oasis, Warehouse, Top Shop, Mint Velvet, Hush, Whistles, Jigsaw, Office, to name a few. Michelle Lee, myfashionable40s was the first fashion influencer I followed on Instagram. I love her classic, casual style.
How would you describe your personal style?
A lovely friend and stylist described my style as ‘classic with a twist’ and I would totally agree. I love classic styles but I like to jazz it up with say leopard shoes or a zebra belt. My favourite outfit is jeans and a blazer.

What is your style philosophy?
Style is about wearing clothes that make you feel and look confident. It’s fine to be influenced by other people’s style but if you’re not feeling it, it will show!
