Merry New Year Ladies, Any resolutions made?  What were they?  No?  Well why not take this little mantra with you as you dive glamorous into 2018 with Style and Panache!

“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.” James Thurber

Whats’coming up?  I am starting to fill this years calendar with awesome things and continuing with my 2017 “Say YES to everything and Do it All” attitude!  Who knows how long we are all here so by golly I want to make a difference in some small way, whether it is teaching Young Ladies the importance of a Lifetime of Beauty Regime, Manners & Grooming or Guest Speaking about Ovarian Cancer or holding Pamper Days for Women with Cancer or maybe it’s a Vintage Styling Workshop, Makeover or Event that I hold that is a game changer for someone…. whatever it is, I promise to give 100% of me, my passion and my knowledge, I have the most awesome team of ladies who share this world with me and to them I say thank you!.. Share the Love I say!  Bring on the Joy!

Did you know I have a Small Vintage Hairstyling Tutorial Chanel?  I have done a couple already and still have a few int he editing tray.. (Phew… such hardwired putting this things together!) – Hats off to those who make a full time job out of it!..  Anyway.. from time to time I will put up some tips and tricks and “How to” videos to back up your hands on learning.  Here’s the link to my latest videos.  More to come in the coming months.

Guest Speaker in Canberra at the Parliamentary Breakfast – 5/6 February

We are humbled, nervous, honoured, nervous and excited at the opportunity (Did I mention Nervous)  to lend our voice and family story to Ovarian Cancer Australia  as Jack (Elisha’s Son, My Son David and I) head to Canberra to meet and greet at Press Club and be Guest Speaker at the Parliamentary Breakfast about the need for more awareness, research and of course, funding into this insidious disease and also into BRCA (The BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations)  Speaking about our family will hopefully lend another human face to the Parliament, there are so many stories out there so taking ours to parliament is a huge honour.  Wish us luck!   February is Ovarian Cancer Month so if you ever wanted to help in some way then why not host an event.. Have a look here at ways you can raise awareness, have fun and raise money all at the same time.  I will leave you with one last thing to ponder:  4 Australian Women are diagnosed each day with OVC and 3 Australian Women Die Each day of OVC.

Must See Movie:  The Greatest Showman

“The Nobelist Art is that of making others happy.. P.T.Barnham”

I don’t know why it is but I only manage but once a year to go to the flicks and watch something epic on the big screen in lay back comfy chairs…  Normally its a Valentines Date night with my handsome husband but this year there was no way I could wait to see the latest movie by Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams…  THE GREATEST SHOWMAN ticks all my boxes and I was certainly like a big wide eyed kid glued to that screen, big smile on my face. It was bordering on sensory overload with all those fabulous costumes, the sounds and the storyline, the humour, the awesome cast of characters and all the charm.. 2018 Movie .. Check!


Til next time,

Stay Charming…

Miss Chrissy xx
