Light­en­ing the load

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

I’VE HAD a week of culling my fash­ion style, my wardrobe; even my kids’ bath­room cab­i­nets and I’ve loved ev­ery minute. There’s some­thing very ther­a­peu­tic about sort­ing and re-or­gan­is­ing. As a re­sult, I’ve been par­ing back my look and my makeup, keep­ing my style sim­ple, ba­sic (ish) and more nat­u­ral. As a woman whose ar­ray of bright red lip­sticks take up two draw­ers in my bath­room cab­i­net, I’m not usu­ally one to be caught dress­ing down. My great-grandma, Nana Cissie al­ways told me never to keep any­thing for best and I’ve fol­lowed her ad­vice ever since, even if I’m just do­ing the school run. How­ever with so many busy weeks im­mersed in the prepa­ra­tion of Pe­sach, mixed with work dead­lines, four chal­leng­ing kids and a never-end­ing slog of a build­ing project, I’ve de­cided to have a week off play­ing dress-up and, to my sur­prise, I’m en­joy­ing it. I highly rec­om­mend you do the same.
