Recently I hit the streets of one of the North’s most stylish cities to find fashionistas with that certain je nais se quoi.
Liverpool is my home town and I know the scousers can seriously pull it out of the bag when it comes to personal style! Sure, we’ve had a lot of stick over the last few decades for ‘scouse perms’, perma-tans and a love of shellsuits (oh the 80s) but Liverpool is one seriously stylish city. Continue reading →
I have been emailed and asked this by so many clients, I thought I would clarify for anyone still lost in the jargon of the beauty counter speak. BB (Beauty Balm) is a hydrating primer/foundation that is primarily oil-based (although some brand offer oil-free creams too) and leaves you with a great healthy look and the popular ‘Dewy’ finish on the skin.

Laura, from Cheshire is mummy to 15 month old Grace who works full-time and contacted My Style Companion for an urgent style makeover saying:-
“Basically I’m in need of help! I’ve lost all confidence in shopping and what clothes to wear. I find myself wearing the same old things I’ve had for years. I’m completely stuck in a rut, and anything I do buy myself is usually second-hand from eBay. Most of my time and money seems to go on dressing my little one. I find I love styles on other people but I can never find things to suit of flatter me, and when I do I walk out of the shop without buying as I almost can’t justify spending the money. Can you help me?”
The answer was of course “yes we can help!” We advised a wardrobe consultation and personal shop based on what Laura told us about herself and her current situation and we got to work straight away on helping Laura to get her Mojo back! Read the full Style Makeover Case Study here and see pictures of Laura!

At the age of 32, I had started to notice over the last couple of years when I looked in the mirror that my skin wasn’t as good as it once was. It wasn’t terrible, but I noticed red patches and no matter what products I used, it always looked a bit dull. I also noticed deep frown lines on my brow – it was these that were making me look older, and a bit angry! Random. In my late twenties I noticed these frown lines, but I was starting to see that they were there permanently rather than just now and again when I was a bit dehydrated. Continue reading →

So which is the right scarf look for you? A scarf can look misplaced and even a bit odd if you choose the wrong style and the wrong way of wearing it. The other classic scarf conundrum is that every time you wear a silk scarf around your neck you end up coming across all Air Hostess and seem like you’re trying just that little bit to hard to look good. The key to clever scarf wearing is:-
