I've always thought that stylists were a bit scary. Until I met Lynne. She's patient, understanding and a brilliant listener. Nothing bossy or Devil-Wears-Prada-esque about her at all. We have similar backgrounds in that we both worked in crazy big jobs in the city before we had total career changes and followed our respective passions for styling and wellness.
I've found that with a lot of my clients, once they've completed a Glorious Wellness programme with me, they want to overhaul their wardrobes too. My work is all about finding a way of eating and being to suit each client, cutting through the confusion around wellness and keeping things really simple. So it makes sense that afterwards, clients want to find a way of dressing that suits them - and keeps things really simple when it comes to deciding what to wear each morning and what to buy when they shop for clothes.
So I asked Lynne to share some of her style secrets and her take on what makes life glorious.
Hello. How are you feeling today?
I'm feeling really good! I love spring, it's my absolute favourite time of the year. Fresh beginnings, a time of renewed energy and all of the summer to look forward to.
You’re amazingly talented. Tell us how you help high-flyers to look gloriously well.
Thank you. It's so important for me to get to know my clients really well, so I know how best to help them. Even seemingly confident people often aren't really, they've just developed skills and experience that help them to wing it. Myself included! I'm passionate about helping everyone to look and feel their best by accentuating all their positives and playing down the parts of their bodies they're not so crazy about. Most people know when things suit them and when they don't. The game changer is learning why. I truly see beauty in everyone and I'm proud that many of my clients say that meeting me has been a life changing experience for them. I genuinely believe I have the best job in the world.
What drives you crazy?
Negativity, bitchiness, apathy, laziness.
What do you love?
Family, friends, my business, my home, positivity, warmth, colour, food, fashion, community, creativity, nature, beaches, kindness. Oh and Hugh Jackman, Aidan Turner and Tom Hardy put a smile on my face too ;-)
Tell us three things we can all do to look like we're glowing with good health.
Firstly, wear one of your best colours right next to your face. You'll look radiant and you'll get loads of compliments, which will make you feel fabulous too. Secondly, wear clothes that you look great and feel really comfortable in. You'll look and feel taller and more confident when you're wearing something that is really 'you'. And finally..... smile! Even when you're having a bad day, if you smile you'll attract positivity which could turn your day around. Smile and the world will smile with you!
Where can we find out more info about you?
Lynne and I are running a Style + Substance workshop together on 19th May. Woo hoo! It's all about achieving spring + summer radiance through styling + nutrition. We'd love love love to see you there. For more details and to reserve your place, click here.
Be glorious. Stay well. Rebecca x
