Bang in the middle of Holiday Season

OK we're well into Holiday Season but with some great sale bargains around you can still enjoy a few last minute treats!

I've chosen a few of my favorite last minute buys, glam but infinitely useful accessories (beach dress, bag, sunglasses etc), to perk up the most basic holiday outfit. All affordable from the Online Shopping Sites that you've recommended. There are some huge reductions - but time is limited.

Always make sure that whatever you buy makes you look and/or feel amazing - if it doesn't then it's not a bargain!

Plan and Pack Smart

Still trying to pull your holiday wardrobe together? The answer is always to simplify!

Follow my packing plan and make co-ordination easier by limiting your colors. Which of the Color Capsules will suit your natural coloring?

The most important piece is probably your swimsuit - so make that your starting point, add a pretty coverup and work the rest of your daytime outfits around it.

Hopefully you're ready to

Feel confident by the Pool...

Showing some flesh is always the bit that worries us most whether It's Bognor or Barbados!

Choosing a swimsuit is exactly the same as choosing clothes to fit your Body Type. There are styles to lift, support, accentuate and disguise - you just need to know what particular features will flatter your own figure. My basic guide to choosing the most flattering swimwear is more about shape than style. Once you know the style features you're looking for, you'll save hours of frustration in the changing room no matter what color or fashion trend you choose!

Style Confidence in the Sun

Hopefully this beautiful weather will continue through August.

Travel Tips this month!

1 We all struggle going through Customs with the 100ml limit on liquids. A great idea is to order your holiday supplies online with Boots the Chemist and have them delivered to the Duty Free outlet! You can take advantage of special offers and, as you're already through the check-in system, no more worries about bottle sizes.

If you're not in the UK, check up to see if the same kind of service is offered.

2 An empty plastic bottle can be refilled for drinking once you're through security.

3 A light jacket or wrap is a must - invariably there's a change of temperature somewhere along the journey.
