Last Saturday, I was in Melbourne for a friend's birthday. I knew it was going to be a cold afternoon/night, so it did take me a while to choose what to wear. My brain is not registering winter outfits yet...
I am not one for wearing lots of pale colours, especially below my waist, because they have the potential to make my hips look bigger. I think I have owned one pair of white pants and now these cream ones. I must confess I don't wear them much.
You have heard me talk many times about wearing colour. And I absolutely love colours. However, I also love wearing black.But when I do it is not by default or because it is easy or a way to hide. It is more about putting together an outfit purposefully in black that looks fantastic.
Taking my self out of my comfort zone with new styles is something that I do once in a while. You know, when I feel I need to spice things up!When I saw this dress online... I thought oh! I like that... I don't normally buy clothes online, but because of the fit I thought there would not be a problem.
I am less than 3 months away from my 41st birthday... wow!!! This has had me reflecting a lot. I may well have lived more than half of my life already.I am so grateful that around the time I turned 33, I made a decision to change my life. Right up until then, I had been living in such a victim position, making everything and everyone the reason why my life wasn't turning out the way I wanted it to turn out.
I am a true believer in filling my wardrobe with pieces that are versatile.Tops that work with different bottoms, accessories that help you dress up and down outfits, items that can be worn in summer as well as winter. And pieces that can be used for different occasions- from the beach to the boardroom. And yes I have a couple of tops that can do this.
Off the shoulder tops have been in fashion for a while now. I probably have too many, but I love them. They work perfectly with my body shape as they create a horizontal influence on my torso/shoulders.
Whether we like it or not the way we dress has a huge impact on the success of our lives. We are visual creatures and we make judgments about people, places and even food based on how they look.
I am in Dubai at the moment, and this is one of the outfits I wore to attend my event. I have heard from a lot of my clients how intimidated they can feel about wearing all white. I actually have A LOT of respect for white. Why? Because it can definitely make you look bigger. However, wearing all white creates a very elegant look, and if done correctly it doesn't necessarily make you look bigger than you are.
I like looking good when I travel. But believe me, I value comfort more than anything, especially when being on a plane for a long flight.The good news is that it is possible to be comfortable and look good. I know! It's a complete revelation, or at least for most of my clients.

I was so excited when I pulled this outfit together! I had never worn my denim shirt like this before. I love layering as it is a great way to spice up the clothes you already own and properly finish your outfits.
Last week one of my dreams came true. Appearing live on National television! I was interviewed on the Today show in Sydney talking about something very close to my heart. It's been a while since I first desired to be on TV. I always kept thinking to myself, ... I am just a Colombian woman with a dream...
Last September I was in Paris for work. This time was extra special to me as I was taking my mum on her first ever trip to Europe. First France, then Italy- and the Vatican! Her dream come true. But that is a story for another day ;)April to August were actually a big blur for me. With the wedding, honeymoon and readjusting to my new life, I did very little work which was reflected in my low income for those months.
Have you ever felt like you have to dress in a ‘certain way’ in order to be taken seriously at work? I have heard this so many times. Women dressing in a way they think they 'should' in order to fit in and be taken seriously. I still remember who I was and how I dressed at my first job ever- the work experience, my mum picking my outfits... painful memories.
This morning, I had a group call with my brilliant coach and the members of a high-level mastermind I am a part of. I had to wake up at 4:30 am for the call and I have a massive cold sore (read: my lip is 5 times bigger than usual) that is making me feel quite tired, edgy and flat.
I love this long top. I got it in Dubai like a million years ago. I am excited to be going there at the end of February again. The shopping was pretty good there!!
Talking dresses today! I love dresses. In all seasons. There is no easier and quicker way to get ready in the morning. One item and you are done. As we are in summer in the southern hemisphere I will talk about summer dresses, but all of these tips apply to any style of dress.
You do know there is a whole world of possibilities out there, or maybe you have forgotten. You might find it hard to justify spending time or effort on getting to know yourself better, developing more your confidence and your style. You might not have given yourself permission yet to feel and look your best...
When people first hear what I do, it’s common for them to say, “Personal Brand doesn’t matter for me”. They think that it’s only for famous people, high flyers or big corporations and that as an individual or small business owner it plays no part in their journey. But here’s the thing - everyone has a Personal Brand - the stay at home mum, the corporate lawyer, the admin person ….absolutely everyone.
