With the sweet sound of freedom gently ringing in the air, it’s the perfect timing for the unveiling of some seriously bold and stylish summer designs.
It’s an exciting time to start getting dressed up again, so let’s have a look at some of the new trends and the summer jewelry I recommend pairing them with.
Summer is almost here! The time when we typically relax and look forward to our well-planned holidays. Unfortunately with travel still up in the air, many are wondering what this first COVID summer is going to look like.
It is easy to fall back into bad eating habits brought on by anxiety or even dare I say it – boredom. But just because summer may be a little more subdued this year, it doesn’t mean healthy habits go out the window. How can you stay active and healthy during this season without falling back into old COVID habits?
While Millennials may be referred to disparagingly as fickle “job-hoppers”, there is no denying that moving to a new position can accelerate the climb up the proverbial career ladder. This is due to a myriad of reasons, including the fact it provides a unique opportunity to acquire new skills, reassert your worth and move into innovative and successful new markets.
Choosing the perfect necklace is such a personal experience and also something that can feel pleasurable and wonderfully self-indulgent.
Our necks are a very sensitive and sensual area and are considered an erogenous zone. I’ve often wondered if that’s why, through the centuries, we’ve had a tradition of decorating ourselves in this area to draw attention to it.
Necklaces can be surprisingly difficult to get just right. So, taking time to appreciate and adorn this area of your body in a way that accentuates your femininity and elegance is really important.
Staying Healthy In Difficult Times
I don’t know about you but I feel like I’ve aged a couple of years in the last month. And if my roots are any sign – it’s going to get a bit uglier before it gets better. We went to sleep one night and woke up in a strange new world. Our lives were put on a collective pause – social plans and travel plans shuttered; kids and husband home 24/7. And there seem to be bizarre shortages at the grocery store. But if we can look beyond the immediate struggles, there are many positives to take away after this crisis has passed
New Normal my ass.
What does the word “leader” mean to you?
For some, it conjures up an image of a CEO of a large company. Others think of parents or guardians. Or perhaps the spokesperson for a social issue.
To be a leader, you don’t have to be a household name or have a title. Everyone is a leader in some context in their life. And learning how to be a more effective leader is within everyone’s grasp.
We all digest information in different ways, so I’m sharing guidance and inspiration about achieving your goals both in writing (see below) and via this short video so you have a visual/audio version to enjoy as well.
My fashion and styling journey started from a young age, growing up with a strong, elegant and powerful mother who spent hours taking care of her appearance. Every day her face, hair style, clothes and jewellery looked extraordinary. My mother was a respected businesswoman who purposely put together her overall look to suit her personality, and she was widely respected for her unique style.
“Women make up about 40% of all employees, but just 6% of CEOs” – Goldman Sachs report (2018)
“Women CEOs make up 6.4% of the Fortune 500 list in America. An increase from the previous years but still incredibly low” – 2017 Fortune 500
Nowadays, these facts and numbers are sadly still not surprising. We are well aware that women leaders are still a rarity, but despite this awareness, it is still difficult to fill in the gender diversity gap.
The facial slapping is a natural phenomenon of time and is individually different. External factors such as nicotine, insomnia or alcohol play a role in this process, but genetic factors are also important.
There are various options for how to either prevent the face slapping or to treat effectively.
8 years ago I stopped eating meat and fish. With the time, and after trying and exploring new tastes, I stayed with the choice of eating 90% plant-based and about 10% animal-based products.
For me personally the plant-based cooking brings abundance of benefits and it tastes great. I have learned few tricks and one of them was to stock my pantry with key ingredients which I always have on hand.
Career coaching: benefits and why it’s important to manage your career; why organizations should seek a coach
In a world characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, known as VUCA, as well as by great organizational change led by overseas assignments and challenging career advancement paths, employees are more likely to often change careers and specialization. In order to increase their performance and retain talent, employers need to implement and enhance continuous learning programs, enabling employees to develop their skills and advance their profession.
I view my go-to accessory basics as equally important as the basic clothing pieces I have in my wardrobe. If we don’t have our basics nailed (with clothes and accessories), then the process of putting together a great top-to-toe look can be very frustrating indeed!
I see jewellery as the staple of a great ensemble, and the special ingredient that raises it to the next level. For me adding accessories to an outfit is like putting spices in your food – they elevate the final look from ok to sublime!
So, let’s take a look at the items that are often viewed as “wardrobe basics”, and I’ll show you the jewellery I’d add from my “accessories basics”.
I love to think of clothes and accessories like this…your body is a beautiful blank canvas, and on the canvas you create a picture of colours, patterns and textures with the clothes you wear. Now this picture in and of itself is wonderful, but when you add the extra details with accessories – a pop of extra colour here, a touch of movement, texture or sparkle there – you turn your picture into a masterpiece!
The world as we know it is in the midst of a huge transformation, and the fashion world is changing along with it.
One of the positive aspects of the Coronavirus (yes there are some!) is the opportunity we’ve been presented with to reflect on what’s really important in our lives, and the impact we’re having on the planet. And in the case of the fashion world the reflections have been around ‘fast fashion’.
In just 15 minutes a day, you could have the answer to CONSISTENT SUCCESS in your career & personal life, unshakable health, happiness, and a life awakened to your purpose.
The Silva Method has been studied in universities around the world and its benefits are scientifically proven.
Truth alert – abundance is your birthright!
However, through our lives we unconsciously create money blocks that prohibit its flow. As a money coach, a tool I use is to define Archetypes. These help my clients understand themselves more deeply and what’s holding them back from an abundant life.
Job seeking in times of crisis can often seem like a counter intuitive thing to do, and many people find themselves asking, “Is it even possible to find a job during a recession?”
In 2008, wanting to make a major career switch, I enrolled on a Master’s degree in Energy Management, which I was confident would enable me to get a brilliant job in the area of sustainability. Things turned out very differently however, and instead I experienced a year of unemployment at the end of my course.
The most cherished holiday of the year for many people in the New Year. Many fashion designers are preparing for the New Year’s arrival in advance. Every year, the last day of December brings the excitement of New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Despite all the festive cheer and time with loved ones that come with the Christmas holiday season, it can also be a stressful time if you plan on buying gifts for everyone in your life. Choosing a gift for a boss or coworker who makes your 9 to 5 a lot more enjoyable, your extended family or devoted best friend, giving a gift is one of the most simple, yet meaningful, ways to say thank you.
