JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: THE THINGS THAT COST NOTHING BRING THE GREATEST REWARDS
It is the most wonderful time of the year. the chance to (finally) bring the glamour on with endless rounds of social events. Even dinner a deux requires a little more effort at this time of the year. Then when you are not partying there are some serious country looks going on too. Great or the school run, long wintry walks in the Country or weekends away partaking in country pursuits.
Both looks are of course combined if you are lucky enough to be invited to a country house party at this time of the year.
So let us view my picks for an injection (yes another booster !!) of glamour whether you are on an endless social spree or just staying at home. Lets go glam !
From the little black dress to jewel colours. Tops such as sequinned bolero or a vava voom tee to jazz up an existing outfit. Beautiful earring as real glamour is about attention to every detail and if you are staying in it just HAS to be maribou/ feather trimmed pjs……….doesn’t it ? Surely ?

COUNTRY CASUAL EDIT
Although there is nothing casual about this look. It is super stylish and thought through but not give the impression that you have tried tooo hard. The “no make up make up look” but in the world of fashion.
Country casuals have to be practical and comfortable. Muted colours keep it classy for the winter months. So we have some practical footwear and of course trousers must be warm and skinny to tuck into long boots. Nothing worse than damp trouser bottoms flapping around your ankles. Super stylish outerwear. Tartan and khaki great colours for the country scene. Coats and jackets are your investment pieces for this look and as the country look tends to not be fashion led these pieces will last a lifetime. Don’t forget the accessories , some brightly coloured scarves for your otherwise muted tones and Mulberry for handbags complete your country wardrobe.
Have fun with creating your two key looks for the season !

Party season is here at last after two years it is time to dress up and paartaay ! Shake off the leggings and loungewear and even if you are still applying an element of caution dress up at home and have some quiet drinks and tapas with a few carefully chosen friends. So let me get you started on party wear for the season. Everything you see here you can purchase with a click of the button ! No trailing shops in the freezing cold , no tiny changing rooms or nothing in your size. Just sit back with a glass of fizz and choose your Christmas outfit right here.
I am loving the tuxedo look , which takes the dilemma out of Black Tie dress code invitations when anything seems to go these days. I wore a Givenchy tux just last week to a very nice event at Mosimanns in Belgravia.
So girls , here are my TOP TEN party outfits …….
So we start our edit with some tux inspired pieces either as a jumpsuit , suit or dress these will get you through any party occasion and any blurred dress codes. If you are planning short and sparkly the Aidan Mattox dress is perfect if you want to cover your arms If you are all out va va voom then Nasty Gal have some very flattering great value party dress. Three eye catching longer length dresses follow. Red will always make you stand out in a room if you want to catch someones eye but the jewel tones from Karen Millen are oh so Christmassy and already discounted ! We finish with some stand out long evening dresses for those extra special events because these are blow your mind (and everyone else in the room) dresses.
So I have you covered for the Party Season something for everyone and something for every occasion , but don’t delay they are selling fast.

With COP26 well under way this week in Glasgow, lets talk green !
Now , I realise some people are in denial about climate change but no one can deny that we are ruining our planet with at best poor housekeeping and at worst dirty filthy habits. There also can be NO denial that we can nurture our planet by all just making a few subtle changes to our lifestyle.
I decided to write about this following a dinner party discussion which involved us listing how green we were. Now I have never really thought about myself as being a green activist but I was surprised how “green” I actually live. I know I could do more but what I do , I do on a consistent basis, without too much trouble or hardship. So I will list the things that I came up with over the dinner table, which I am sure most of you already do, but if you don’t try to make some small adjustments to help clean our beautiful planet up. If I can do it, I am pretty sure you can. The planet is a thing of beauty to be handled with care and passed onto the many generations to whom we pass the baton.
Always shower and only for 30 seconds unless i am washing my hair, rarely bath.
I generate only half a small bag of waste each week. Only use bio degradable bin bags never plastic.
Turn tap off while cleaning my teeth
I do not class myself as a vegetarian but I only meat about once every six months
Do not buy fast disposable fashion. I shop for clothes twice a year not twice a week ( or as some people do twice a day !!!)
No longer buy bottled water I bought a Brita filter jug but I use the filter three times longer than recommended. I have a reusable bottle for life for water on the go.
Energy efficient . I only have lights on in the room that is being occupied.
Installed solar panels on my roof to lower my energy bills.
Make my own cleaning products from white wine vinegar/lemon juice and soda crystals to cut down my chemical waste.
Now take trains for long journeys (this is new to me !!) but they are much better than I recall.
I have hessian lifetime shopping bags.
Buy loose fruit and vegetables and don’t even use the plastic bags on the rack they go onto the conveyer belt singularly !!
Oh… and I only have one child. Now I would never, unlike Meghan and Harry tell you how many children to have. Even though they now have gone against their own advice. Do as they say not as they do has become their mantra ! But just saying. This is only about me.
I certainly do not want to become a green preacher but these are all simple things to inject into your everyday life without too much planning. Think, if we all did these basic things what a massive difference we could make collectively.
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: ADD MORE GREEN INTO YOUR DAY ON TOP OF MY FAMOUS GREEN JUICE WHICH I HOPE YOU ARE ALL HAVING EACH MORNING. FORGET ORANGE – GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK !!!!
YOUR REGULAR WEDNESDAY MEET UP TO CHECK IN WITH YOUR MENTAL HEALTH AND OF THOSE AROUND YOU. TASKS, MANTRAS OR JUST PLAIN OLD POSITIVE COMMUNICATION TO LIFT YOUR SPIRITS AND GET YOU THROUGH TO THE END OF THE WEEK.
DISEASE IS A COMBINATION OF :
THE FOOD YOU EAT
THE EXERCISE YOU GET
HOW MUCH SLEEP YOU HAVE
THE THOUGHTS YOU THINK
THE TOXINS YOU ABSORB
THE STRESS YOU EXPERIENCE
THE ANGER YOU KEEP
THE UNFORGIVENESS YOU HOLD
SO THIS WEEK GO THROUGH THIS LIST CAREFULLY AND KEEP IT BY YOUR BED. THEN LOOK AT WHERE YOU CAN MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE SO YOU CAN “EASE THE DIS”. TRY TO KEEP TO YOUR PLAN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE SO YOU CAN LIVE A LONG AND HEALTHY LIFE.
