I want so very much to share my journey.
I want so very much to get back the style that I let slide away.
I want, hopefully, to inspire at least one person to take back their self and inject their life with vivacity.
Ten years ago I was a vintage styled, singing, dancing and superbly coiffed young woman. To no fault of anyone but myself, I have become a tracksuit wearing, non-dancing semi-slob
I decided that this has to change. I’m not happy in my own skin, I hate the clothes (or a great part thereof) in my wardrobe, I miss my “hair time”, my vintage/inspired clothes, I miss dancing and most of all, I miss a part of me that has fallen into semi-oblivion.
I have the commitment of my family to support me. I am investing in some new ‘classic’ and yet vintage styled sewing patterns so that I can love what I see in my wardrobe every day. I also have bought some velcro rollers, curl clips and a setting net so that my coiff can be silky smooth and bouncy.
So that’s the external stuff, right? What about the mentality, the drive, the ambition to make *this* time the time that it works. Well, at almost 34 I have to make the change now if it’s ever going to happen long term, right?
I plan on including lot of different things along the way. From hair and makeup, to garments I sew for myself, bargain shopping finds, recipes and exercise triumphs!
I have no time frame, as it’s more important for this to be a lasting change. But I do have other goals.
- Eradicate ‘sweats’ and the like from my wardrobe. I deserve to look fantastic every day.
- Look after my skin better, from within as well as externally.
- Maintain a vintage hair cut & style it every day. NO MORE PONYTAILS!
- Do something that makes me happy every single day.
Join me on my path from frumpy to fabulous!
