Describe yourself in a few key words…
Organised, tidy, stylish, fun, sociable, loyal, puts people at ease, positive attitude.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s my passion so it doesn’t feel like work. I love seeing the transformation from start to finish – the smile on the face of my client at the end of a wedding, style package or a styling session is the best feeling ever. Everyone deserves to feel like this.
Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?
Photographers, hairdressers and being part of a wedding network. I sell a range of make up, but now also cabi clothing encompasses all the work I do in one place; I can style a client and do their make up and they can buy the products too!!
What inspires you?
People and nature. I love the colours that naturally surround us and it’s a great way to see how colours work well together. I really love people watching, and seeing how people who make an effort have a certain look of confidence about them – their posture is different and they look like they have a purpose! I also love contemporary and modern places such as a good wine bar, cocktail bar or stylish restaurant – even better if it’s overlooking the Med (seems to be a bit of a theme there!).
What are your favourite brands, and who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
I love high street brands like Mint Velvet, Zara, Reiss, H&M (conscious) Moda in Pelle for shoes, but when I have the money then Malone Souliers for luxury (one day I will have a pair!), Mulberry for handbags (I’m lucky enough to now own a few thanks to a fabulous partner a special birthday and a work bonus!) and I would love a wool coat from Max Mara or Stella McCartney one day that will last me for the rest of my life.
Kelly Lundberg is a good influencer for me; I did her course and she has been a style mentor to me. I also like @doesmybumlook40 for various reasons – mainly her fun approach to most things!

What is your style philosophy?
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, it’s just in the styling and how you put things together. Everyone can look great and feel amazing no matter what their budget is.
