My Christmas message to you all this year is steeped in sadness.
As you may be aware I lost my mum on the 29th of November, finding out a few hours before I began a 5-day stylist course.
My mother was my style icon growing up, putting herself first every morning and ensuring her appearance was spot on.
My Mum was also very tough on me, not easily pleased and not one to throw me compliments.
It’s interesting how our mothers shape us into the women we become.
We avoid like the plague the things we dislike about who they are and we absolutely follow to a T the things we love and admire about them.
I have been a devoted, loving daughter my whole life, looking desperately for praise and appreciation from her.
Her love for me was unconditional.
This Christmas we all celebrate a year of joys and losses.
I am going to celebrate family.
Who I have with me and who I don’t.
Love is a word to easily flung around, but love for each other, support of us all as individuals who go through losses and experience joy at the same stage is vital.
Love and support each other
Be kind to anyone you see
Cherish your Mum and Dad!
If you have lost a parent this year I am so terribly sorry and so sad for your loss.
As always, my love of my family, friends, passion for my course graduates, clients and my love of fashion refocuses me when the tears come.
So I thought this blog I would bring some joy with some New Year outfits to inspire some of you to head out and have fun this year!

All my love Cindy,
