OK so we are almost at the end of February already!!!

Statistics tell us that more than 80% of people do not stick to their New Year's resolutions!!! That means most of you have already forgotten yours...However, I'm going to give you 5 easy Style Resolutions you will stick to all year round!

1. I will smarten up my act - meaning I will make the most of my outfits and ensure that I look stylish and feel beautiful every time I step out the house.

2. I will get back to nature - natural minimal make up looks much better than a caked on complexion. Some bronzer, mascara and a lipstick in a bright hue will be enough to brighten your face and your day.

3. I will take more fashion risks - step out of your comfort zone and wear something you would not normally put on or choose, it will make you feel liberated!

4. I will permit myself to shine - sequins and metallics in the day!

5. I will be more down to earth - flat shoes are so popular and fashionable right now. Embrace the thousands of options available and get comfortable, but still be Stylish, Fashionable and Glamorous!

And there you have this every day and you will look good and feel your best!

As they say here in Australia "too easy!"

A long time ago air travel used to be glamorous! You would dress up and have the finest luggage, the whole experience was luxury. The flight was the start of your holiday adding to the, not so much!

By the time you actually take your seat on the flight you are exhausted, stressed and sweating! Add 2 small, screaming children to the mix and you double the stress factor and make it just a little bit more fun! NOT!

From check in to touch down it's just non stop disaster…all the channels you have to go through to enjoy your relaxing holiday on a beach somewhere with a cocktail in hand…and then just when you are nice and relaxed from your beach holiday with many exotic cocktails, you have to do it all the way back again! When you land at home you have already forgotten about your lovely relaxing holiday because you are all stressed again!!!

I recently had a fabulous holiday with my husband and 2 kids…I'm not a good traveller and I "hate" flying which is quite ironic as I did it for a living for more than 10 years!!! Ha ha ha! I know…right??? Different life…different world, that's all I'm saying!!!

Forget about glamorous dressing…its all about practicality and comfort. The effort I do try and put in to look fashionable doesn't look so good anymore when we reach the other side...chances are there are sticky handprints and some kind of child dribble smeared on me somewhere! That's why I travel in dark colours...normally jeans and a black t-shirt with comfortable, sensible but still fashionable shoes and a huge bag...big enough to cart around everything we will need and might need for the flight!

Maybe these are only economy class travel problems?

It might be a good idea to invest in some business class tickets the next time we fly, after all luxury will always be in fashion!

You get many types of love...each one feeling different and reserved for someone special. Love can make you deliriously happy or severely's a universal language, an emotion that everyone understands, maybe not understand??? But we all need it to survive!!!

This month is the month of Love. This made me think of the different types of Love I have in my life, many different kinds each reserved for a special person that brings meaning and purpose to me, makes me a better version of myself and makes me stop and realize how very blessed I am!!!

Let me count the ways...the absolute Love of my husband, without him there is no me...there is no family. My children...gosh the love I feel for them...they complete me and give my life purpose and meaning every day, the joy I feel when I look at them and hold their little bodies so close and kiss their little faces a million times...there is nothing better than that! My Mother...what an absolute inspiration and role model that I look up to and try to become every day...if I can be half the woman that she is I will be Dad...he was my direction, my guidance and my rock. I feel lost without I'm just drifting along....

My family, each one of them give meaning to my life in a way that fills me spiritualy and emotionally. They each contribute and add to my life tremendously!

My friends...what would life be without friends? People who are you...the same as you or sometimes very different, but each one adds to this thing called LIFE, like a cherry on top!

But most important is God...because without Him, there will be none of this...

So during this month of Love, I encourage you to count the ways of Love in your life, take stock...then sit back and just LOVE...because all I know of Love is...Love is all there is...

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
