Style part 2

I talked about finding your style but finding your style is only the first part. Once you find your style then you actually have to find a wardrobe.

It is often the case that our closets are full of  "stuff". Things we would not wear or don't fit our style. So what do we do?

My style does not lend itself to pants but if yours does then you will find the following a little help.

The absolute least number of clothes you can have two tops & two pairs of pants but it isn't encouraged because it means that you will need to do a small wash every day and if you pay for the machines as I go that can get really expensive.

The recommended wardrobe varies a little depending on rather you need only a casual ie everyday wardrobe or both a casual & a work wardrobe. Those with uniforms are super lucky that way because all you need is three uniforms. People who work in an office need a few more things. What depends on the formality of your job and the company you work for.  I won't go into that as I have little experience in offices.

I like capsule wardrobes:

They begin with a base colour, sometimes two so that the pieces can be mixed and matched. Mine are red and black. 90 % of my wardrobe is red, black or a combination of the two. I also have two different wardrobes. One is dresses, shorts & t-shirts for the summer. The other one is warm tights, t's and sweaters for the colder weather. Usually one or the other is packed away and only the one for the season is out.

The image above is for a classic style, mine is filled with patterns not solids, your style and colors will be different as well.

Do you have a colour or colours the are prominent in your wardrobe?

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
