“Thank you too for giving me the courage to get my legs out!” is just one of the commendations from clients of Nicola Davis, the award winning image consultant and our Speaker for the night from colourmebeautiful. It was one of those pampering sessions for our 38th birthday meeting which had us all thinking were we all wearing the right colour? And whereas we might all know which colour we would never wear, the flip side is sometimes being unsure as to what we can choose to make us look and feel better. How many of us make a decision in a shop changing room that tends to veer on the safe side? Which is probably why so many women wear black to a winter’s evening do. Nicola was great. It was quite apparent that her expertise on colour, make-up, clothes and accessories could make us look fresher, younger and more stylish, regardless of our age, height or weight. But that didn’t stop one of our ladies humorously shouting to one of the demonstration volunteers “make sure you take that lot off before you go home to your husband!!” Joking aside, what a good evening with guests from other local WI’s, a new prospective member and a brilliant birthday cake made by Yvonne.
