Lightening the load
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.
