This month in the community has been so much fun!
We've been learning all about what to wear, what makeup to use and how to pose for photos - from selfies and group shots to professional photoshoots.
It's been a highly-requested topic from you guys for a while now, but I've been putting it off each month because it's something that I personally don't feel much of an expert about.
But when it came up again by two members I decided to just suck it up and deliver! And I wanted to thank you guys as I've learned so much just through researching this topic, so it's helped me grow too as a style coach and as a person.
Anyway, here are just five of the many tips I've given over the month...
Happy 2020 everyone! How quickly has this year flown by?! I'm so excited about what this year has in store for Redeeming Beauty.
This month over in the community we've been having so much fun!
To kick off the year, we've been focusing on up-leveling our personal style to set us up for a super stylish 2020.
And I thought this month on the blog I'd share five of the many tips and tricks we've been covering in the community so that those of you who've yet to join us can be part of it too.
Here we go...
If you follow me on social media, you may have heard about my brand new online community that's launching this coming Sunday.
I did a live facebook video all about it yesterday - you can watch it here if you missed it.
But for those of you who like to read rather than watch, I thought I'd write a blog post to let you know all about it - and how you can receive a FREE colour analysis just for joining before opening day!
Colour analysis is one of my favourite parts of my job.
I love supplying clients with a perfect palette of their 36 best colours that will make them glow.
But the problem is, once you've learned your colour code, you still have a whole wardrobe filled with colours you can't wear...
...your 'wrong' colours.
Are you a fan of high heels?
I love the look of them...
But I'm terrible at wearing them for more than five minutes.
That's why, when watching red carpet events, I can't help but wonder how the women in attendance can look so elegant while walking around in sky-high heels all event long.
Recently, on the Cannes red carpet, I was amused to see one celebrity have a 'human' moment. Kristen Stewart was obviously in so much pain from her heels that she removed them mid-carpet. Take a look...
I love big red carpet events - it's so much fun checking out what the celebrities are wearing!
The Met Gala is especially exciting. Each year, there's a specific, often slightly strange theme. It's fun to see how the attendees respond to the year's theme.
This year, the theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination". (Quite a bizarre theme, but I digress...)
Below I've ranked a selection of looks from my least-favourite to my number one pick. Read on to find out who got it right, and who got it painfully wrong...
Patterns are one of my favourite tools in dressing.
Did you know that prints and patterns can both minimise and maximise an area? Take the bust line, for example: if you are overly-endowed, wearing a pattern over the bust area will distract the eye and 'minimise' the bust line. If, on the other hand, you have a small bust, wearing a pattern will add visual bulk and 'maximise' the area.
Pretty neat, huh?

When was the last time you had a compliment on your hair?
...Can't remember? Then it may be time to update your hairstyle.
Your hair is one of the most important aspects of your appearance, as it's the first thing someone notices about you when you walk into a room. Because of this, it's vital that your hairstyle is in harmony with your face shape.
There are four basic face shapes: the oval, the square, the round and the heart. Read on to find out which one you are, along with some suggestions for each shape.
This week's #TipTuesday was about finding a style icon, and I decided to expand on this for this week's blog post.
If you want great personal style but aren't quite sure how to get it, find a celebrity with a style you love and imitate it. Celebrities are perfect for this because having a great style is almost a part of their job description. They have stylists who give them a defined style that they become known for.

If you've been following me on social media (click here for Facebook and here for Instagram) you know that I've recently joined a company called Park Lane Jewelry. To celebrate, I'm having an online party, and I'd love for you to come along! It's going to involve a live facebook video where I show some of the beautiful jewelry, give some styling tips and do a few giveaways.
(Click here to check out the facebook event and RSVP.)
Anyway, as a lead up to the event, I thought I'd write this week's blog post about my top accessorising tips! I'll also be sharing a lot of these live during the event, so you definitely don't want to miss it.
So without further ado, here are my top accessorising tips...
