Summer holiday season is almost upon us and whilst we love nothing more than an excuse to jet off to the sun, sometimes the thought of getting everything ready beforehand can seem a little daunting.
In this month's newsletter we take you through our top packing tips and tricks to ensure you have everything you need whilst still meeting the luggage limit!
Keep It To A Capsule Collection
Many of us have a tendency to take away more clothes than we actually need.
To avoid this you need to create a capsule wardrobe for your holiday which will allow you to mix and match several items easily....
Colour code - stick to a few key colours from your palette and build your holiday wardrobe around them. Be sure to include neutral shades for pieces like trousers/skirts so they can be worn with multiple tops and accessories.
Lay out your shoes/accessories - and then halve them. Providing you have footwear that is suitable for any activities you'll be doing whilst you're away you really don't need to take multiple options. With accessories, just a couple of key pieces will see you through. As for bags - one daytime/beach bag and one for the evening should suffice.

Clare Greenwood was trained as Colour Me Beautiful's South West Image Consultant. So, just how did someone with no apparent sense of “style”, end up becoming an Image Consultant, long before it was really heard of? That’s what Clare Greenwood’s family probably often still think when she is away camping or wearing a bikini,at her size? Or wearing leggings, at her age? Therein lies the magic that she has shared for over 30 years, simply that we all have an inherent beauty, an affinity with colour and all things harmonious and with a bit of understanding we can learn how to be comfortable in our own skin whatever our age, shape or size! Clare always experimented with fabric and wool. With 6 siblings she was left to play with the leftovers of any recently made outfit and spent endless hours dressing and making dolls. From such humble beginnings began her lifelong fascination for colour, fabric and texture. Now she dresses 'live dollies'!
