New Year, New You? Getting Started

by Karen Judge · 0 comments

As a stylist there is no doubt in my mind how powerful feeling good about yourself is. Knowing how to dress for your body type, age and budget is a big part of feeling “Gorgeous”, however it’s not the only part. I start with great clothing, but having it all also means feeling healthy, happy, passionate, fulfilled, excited, interested and loved.

Some ways to kick off 2011 with a fresh outlook downtown are:

Review your style and appearance

Need to refresh your look?  Maybe a makeover could help you get started. Fashion Central now offers a makeover package that includes a hair, makeup, grooming and wardrobe style session.

Find new inspiration

Read a book like Crazy, Sexy, Diet by Kris Carr.

Buy yourself flowers, regularly.

My favourite places to go are Itinerante Flowers in Bankers Hall or La Fleur in Art Central.

Try a new restaurant

Home Tasting Room on Stephen Avenue Walk just opened in the fall. Find a friend and ask them to join you.

Get active

Start a dance class, try yoga or go for a walk along the Bow River. Strong bodies = strong minds.

Give back

Find a charity that is dear to your heart and get involved. My pick – The Canadian Women’s Foundation

Learn to live your best and keep in mind how precious life is.
