I hope everyone has been enjoying this Winter! My husband and I recently returned from a week of sunshine in Mooloolaba, Queensland. It's not always easy carving out time from our busy schedules for a holiday, and had we not booked this one a year ago, I don't think we would have gone. I am so grateful we did it though! It took a few days to unwind, but we have both returned feeling refreshed and filled with renewed energy! I find that travel (no matter how big or small the trip), offers a different perspective on life and I always return feeling inspired and motivated to work on my life goals. I hope you and your family have shared a similar experience this season and are feeling excited about Spring fast approaching.
This trip, we didn't bother with the camera and just took a few phone snaps when we remembered. Our focus was on spending time with each other, staying warm and walking on sunshine (and a bit of shopping, of course)! ~ Bibi x
MASTERING YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
The Studio Bibi workshop series titled "Master Your Personal Style" has officially launched and our first workshop was held on 14 August at the beautiful Morgan & Page boutique at The Tannery in Christchurch. Feedback was very positive and I have been buzzing ever since...super eager and excited to facilitate the upcoming workshops. There are 5 individual 90 minute sessions and I am offering two date and time options for each workshop so that you don't miss out. The maximum capacity for each is 10 people, so if you're interested be sure to sign up soon. Another reason to register now is to take advantage of the Early Bird Deal of only $39.00 per workshop if you book 2 weeks in advance of the start date. The regular fee is $49.00 per workshop. You can view all of the details and register with the button below. I hope to see you there!
Dress for Success will be holding a Pop-up Sale at the Hub in Hornby, filled with gorgeous pre-loved clothing, shoes and accessories on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st August from 10am - 3pm. I'll be volunteering on the Saturday from 10am - 1pm, so please stop and say "HI" if you're in the neighbourhood!
SPRING/SUMMER TREND PREVIEW
Being a personal stylist, trends aren't really my thing...but I do stay aware of them out of curiosity and to keep informed of what’s happening in the fashion industry. Once in awhile, I find the occasional one gels with either my own personal style (or a client's) and it can be fun to have a play with them. It might even inspire one's personal style to evolve! So for those who are interested, it's still early days (Spring isn't officially here for a couple more weeks) but here are a few of my faves out of some upcoming trends for Spring/Summer 2019/20. You can expect a lot more (for example, graphic prints, silky whites, turmeric yellows, cerulean and cobalt blues)...stay tuned! In the meantime, have a think of how some of these might fit in with your personal style, colour palette and body shape.
IN THE NEWS
I'm so pleased and excited for Studio Bibi to be in a fashion editorial of the current edition of Metropol magazine. It's out on newsstands now and at Metropol Online until 28 August. (Page 34 if anyone would like to give it a read.)
WORLD ORGANICS CONFERENCE 2019
Just over a week ago, I attended the two day annual conference for World Organics in Auckland. It's true...the weather was not very cooperative and my carry-on and I did get drenched while wandering around the waterfront searching for my hotel...
...it was so worth it though. Another inspirational event with gorgeous ladies where the main focus was on customised services and experiences for all. We have some fab new features coming up (and a few new products) that I'm really excited about - and just when I thought I couldn't love this company any more...their transparency and willingness to listen, and to guide us when needed is outstanding. I've always found it a struggle to sum up what I do for a living, but now I feel I can reply with confidence "I help women discover their personal style so they will look great and feel confident and comfortable in their own skin"...and that covers everything I deal with from natural, beautiful, beneficial skincare and makeup - to personal style, clothing and accessories! You can now view the upgraded World Organics website and browse our products and current specials HERE.
Don't forget, I'm always available to demonstrate or answer any questions you may have. I also have all products set up in my studio, should you wish to stop by and try them out. If you'd like to schedule a skincare and makeup consult, please email me or you can purchase products directly from my World Organics page.
