Poise, Purpose, Posture, Primping and Preening… It's all in here and It's all OK!

Poise is composure and dignity of manner.  It is a graceful and elegant bearing in a person…

Hello Lovelies….

It’s been a wee while since writing a letter to you all… With dancing at the Commonwealth Games, Workshops, Mother and Daughter Days, Young Ladies Charm School, Hens parties, Weddings, BFF Charity Pamper Days and all the fabulous things in between,  I find I am sitting at the computer late on a Saturday night with a treatment in my hair and my late night comfies on wanting to reach out to you all.  Its already May and I’ve been having the time of my life… I might not be rich in acquisitions and dollars but I am certainly rich in love, friendships and fun..

My Next Model Inspiration – I need a cute as a button gal I can do this on!

Master the graceful art of old-world glamour with expert advice on how to be classically cool from the marvellous Miss Chrissy Keepence from the Lindy Charm School for Girls this Mother’s Day.

Following her sell-out event at the Museum last year, Chrissy returns with more styling secrets, practical tips and tricks, and racks of exquisite vintage gowns for you to envy. She’ll show you how to take pieces from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s and dress them for the new millennium with a few carefully chosen accessories. Better yet, she’ll share the secret to finding genuine vintage clothing in-store and online, how to revive it and conserve it for your daughters and grand-daughters.
