New Year to all our readers! The
weather may have started dull and miserable
this year but the mood in the office is
definitely positive. It seems we all got
exactly what we wanted for Christmas this
year and although the year is yet young,
so far we’ve all kept out resolutions.
honest I loathed most of it. In fact,
it was making me downright miserable!
So I made my mind up there and then to
‘detox’ the lot. I’ve only ever done anything
on that scale once before and that was
when we moved house three years ago.
actually I began mine before New
Year – I was determined to make
an absolutely new start this year
with a whole new wardrobe, skin
routine and body beautiful regime.
I took the positively drastic and
dangerous step of getting rid of
my whole wardrobe of clothes – yes
The whole lot, bagged up and given
to charity three days before Christmas.
Tops, bottoms, sweaters – the whole
lot and it felt fantastic.
I had reached a point last summer
where I knew that nothing was really
working for me anymore. I wasn’t
passionate about a single piece
in my wardrobe and to
We had saved really hard and decided to
leave absolutely everything behind, all
the furniture, curtains, fixtures fittings,
everything. We wanted a completely new
look at our new house and knew that if
we took even a few things then we’d be
stuck with trying to make them fit in.
So we put up with bare floorboards and
nothing to sit on until we made our choices
and although it was really hard at times
I have never loved a house more than I
do this one.
to get them but it was unbelievably simple,
it arrived within days and their prices
were far keener than anything we have
in the UK! It all fitted perfectly and
looked terrific and I knew I had the right
thing. A whole new me had appeared at
the click of a mouse and it felt absolutely
felt almost like a spiritual cleansing
and I can honestly say we have chosen
everything in this home on its own
merit and love it all the more.
So, deep down, I knew the only way
to go with my horrible wardrobe
was to say goodbye to it all. Obviously
a great deal of planning and saving
went on last year – after all we
live in an area where the neighbours
would complain if I walked around
naked (and who could blame them!)
and it did take a long time trawling
the internet to find what I wanted
– I’ve long since given up pounding
the same old pavements with the
same old stores which blast you
with hideous music and sell clothes
only fit for circus clowns.
But eventually I found a company
that seemed to have all the right
things for me – true, I did have
to send to Canada
Once I had built my ‘capsule’ wardrobe
full of classic pieces I wrote a list
of what I needed, what I wanted and added
a few things I would like to try and over
Christmas and New Year I have systematically
been putting together a very comprehensive
collection that I’m now very pleased with.
Of course, I haven’t made a start on summer
yet but I’ll soon have that underway!
And for once, when my family asked what
I would like for Christmas this year I
was able to tell them! I showed them a
list of all the new face and body products
that I wanted and there they all appeared
in my stocking! I knew that my skin routine
wasn’t really working as hard for me as
I would like – skin gets lazy if you use
a product for too long, what had suited
me over the past ten years just wasn’t
delivering and although I do get to try
many products throughout the year in my
job, I basically stuck to the same routine
for years. It was time for a change so
I did, and again, I couldn’t be more pleased.
style that you might not have considered
It may sound drastic and a little
scary to go to such lengths but
if you’re feeling the same way I
suggest you try it. Obviously you
need to plan ahead and give yourself
some time to get things together
but once you’ve done that then set
yourself a deadline. Choose an event
– your birthday, anniversary or
such and set that as the date for
the big clear out. And be ruthless,
if you don’t absolutely love it
or need it then out it goes! Making
such a big change will also open
up other possibilities; you will
be able to choose new make-up or
nail polishes, different styles
of jewellery or a
My new wardrobe is still lacking a few
pieces of course and it may take a little
time to replace everything, but I can
honestly say it has done me a power of
good – the best start to the New Year
I could have given to myself!
