I have finally found a great space to work full-time from, within my minimal budget and with 90% of my must haves..#doing a little dance right now. It has taken a while but the time is here now. 

Keep pushing for what you believe in, speak on it, see it, know it is yours and it will be!

I am a strong believer in maximizing my wallet as well as maximizing my clients wallets. You don’t have to break the bank to look fabulous. 

I have decided to include a weekly blog post about ‘playing dress up’ and with each post I will endeavor to keep the dress up ideas under $20.

Enjoy and let me know what you think about what I have put together.

Been working on some styling advise/wardrobe revamping and thrift shopping for a client and thought I would share with you all my process…  

  • Firstly I have a chat with my client and find out what they are looking to do with their style by asking a few key questions (short sample)
  • Then we discuss budget- I have a lot of clients that specifically hire me for my ability to find amazing thrift-ed pieces. I work with any budget- as a lifestylist I’m all about maximizing my clients budgets and getting them the most..’Trying to make a dollar out of 15c’ as it were…
  • Once that’s all done, I build a full profile:  image/mood board, wardrobe cleanse, shopping trip, styling session and final meeting

A lot of work goes into this sort of business..well all businesses take a lot of work- if you are passionate about what you do it won’t feel like work.

My latest client loves Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. These gorgeous twins are inspiring, hardworking and very stylish, makes sense for my client to want to dress like them.

Back to work for me, more blogging later

later Rubies

For your dreams to be fulfilled you have to step out of your comfort zone 

Go out there and make it happen…You are here to enjoy life 

La Vie est belle ~ Life is beautiful

Little bit of advice

Well written…In my opinion we go through life stressing about finding the one when we should in essence be finding ourselves, making ourselves the best possible person we can be so that when we do eventually find that ‘one’ we are able to love more, give more and work towards making the most of lasting relationships. Life is hard as it is without being in relationships that do not serve us well.

Look at you and make the best possible decisions for yourself. If you wake up and the someone you are with is not building you-fulfilling your needs-loving you beyond just the words or making you feel like a Queen or King…Now is the time to sit down evaluate and make decisions…

I’m no Cinderella but all I’m saying is that I do deserve the best and we all deserve happily ever afters…

Just be.

Been having a rough start to the year, and I am so ready for things to start falling into place…needless to say the anxiety levels have been at a record high. Then I came across this pretty picture and decided I can’t make things work as I always want them to and sometimes we just have to be.
