Is this normal?

April 21st, 2014 by Kim Bolsover

am I weird or is this normal?“Dear Kim,

I have been reading a book about the tonal colour analysis system and it’s left me totally confused!

I can’t identify myself in there anywhere and I’ve spent 18 years thinking I was a Sweet Pea Summer!


I’m thinking that if I can’t discover myself when I was so certain, how on earth am I going to be able to help others.

I’m sure all would be revealed in your Colour Analysis training program but I’m suffering a crisis of confidence and don’t quite know whether or not to commit to something that may not work out for me.

Is this normal?” Desperate Doris

Dear Desperate Doris,

Fear not, dear lady. You are perfectly normal.

No-one can do their own colour analysis

There isn’t a single one of us on the planet who can be totally objective about ourselves.

I have been in this business for 34 years and I still cannot ‘see’ myself objectively. I always go to another professional to help me with this.

You are reading a book that can only provide generalisations. It was never meant to give you a definitive answer. If it did, there would be no need for the publishers to train their own image and colour consultants!

So their book is just an introduction to the subject of colour analysis. It’s a marketing device to whet your appetite.

They want you to read it and get a vague idea of what looks good on you. But they also want you to feel exactly like you do right now – confused, because you can’t work it out for yourself.

They want you to book a personal consultation with one of their trained consultants and sell all their other products to you too.

My Colour Analysis training will teach you how to treat each individual client as an unique human being and how to give each lady bespoke, personalised advice about her own specific physical and psychological colouring.

And I am here to help with your colour skills and show you how to make a full and quick return on your investment.

A book full of generalisations cannot possibly compete with that!



Men just don’t understand women, do they?

A man found a bottle on the ocean.

When he opened it, out popped a genie who gave him three wishes.

The man wished for a million dollars, and poof! there was a million dollars. Then he wished for a convertible, and poof! there was a convertible. And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women… and poof! he turned into a box of chocolates!

The poor, unsuspecting darling!
