With all of the gloom and doom in the new’s it is easy to forget that Christmas is around the corner and with it the chance to catch up and celebrate.
How do you feel?
Here are some tips and tricks to help you feel party ready without blowing the budget.
Think about what you need to feel fabulous and like having fun. How we dress our mood and mindset are interwoven. So what you wear plays a big part. Find your wardrobe favourites that you know make you feel this way. If you think you need to add a little razzle dazzle pick something that will work well with your favourites and is versatile enough to see you through from desk to disco along with lunchtime, brunch time catch ups.
Check out my blog on how to create your capsule collection - yes this applies to party dressing.
If you feel the need for something new
An eluroom dress is great for this. It will take you from party season and beyond. Wears per spend they are a bargain.
How will you style yours?

The final touches....
If you are refreshing make up or getting ready from scratch put on some music. You can always wear head phones. Get those hips moving, or the toe tapping or the tune humming. Lastly take a big deep breath lift your arms and do a twirl - yes like wonder woman. Did you know twirling has many health benefits. It enhances sensory and simulation, it helps you find your centre and is a great energy boost.
Woo hoo your off!
My top tips for stamina are nourishment, movement and hydration
After works drinks, well any drinks where there is not a meal, eat a substantial lunch, soup, stir fry. and have snack around 4 which is savoury carb based - not sugary.
Ensure you empty your glass before having a refill, be very careful with cocktails. They say a glass of water as every other drink but I don't know who does this. Have water before you go out and definitely when you get home and try in all of that to have a couple - something is better than nothing.
