Help Celebrate My Birthday

April 17th, 2014 by Kim Bolsover

It was my birthday yesterday and I was supposed to send this newsletter out to you before going out last night to my favourite Italian restaurant, La Scala, for a birthday treat… but I was determined to wear a dress for once and it took me so long to decide that I ran out of time!

In our house, we don’t celebrate birthdays ‘just for the day’, we get an entire birthday week! So this week I’m the birthday girl and I racked my brains to come up with something special for you to help me celebrate.

I want to get on with other birthday things today (like reading the latest Jeffrey Archer, and going out for tea and fat sticky buns) so I’ll keep this short!

During birthday week, purchase any training program on DVD and I’ll include the following extras at no additional cost to you:

  • The Complete Audiobook Library – core image skills, marketing and business strategies, how to find and keep your clients happy, and how to develop yourself – all 34 audiobooks are presented by me in nine key areas of image, business and personal development
  • Colour & Style Help and Support – for an entire year. If you’re feeling isolated with no-one to ask for help & advice, our online help and support community of image consultants and personal stylists across the world (plus me too!) is exactly what you need
  • The Complete Colour & Style Toolkit – Done-for-you client handouts for both men and women – seasonal and tonal colour, body shapes, style personalities. Proven marketing ideas to find clients and build your business. Plus 19 pre-written newsletters ready for you to use immediately. Downloadable tools to help you start, promote and build your image consultancy business

For the first 7 to order, I will also include:

  • PERSONAL COACHING – Two hours of 1-to-1 personal coaching with me by phone or Skype – I can help you develop and refine your core skills, find clients, promote your business, improve your website, and design packages for your clients. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough hours in my diary to help everyone so you will get an ‘out of stock’ message at the checkout when these 7 personal coaching places have gone
  • Total value: GBP £940 (USD $1,578)

Warning – coaching with me is not for everyone!

I shoot straight from the hip and I will be utterly honest with you. If you can’t handle the truth, then this isn’t for you. But if you really want someone to tell you what will work, what definitely won’t, what to focus on, and how to achieve your goals, then I’m your woman!

Select your DVD program

So to get all the wonderful birthday extras I’ve outlined above, choose from any of my DVD programs (click on the links below for full details) and let’s get your first coaching call scheduled:

Apparently (according to Neil!), my ‘birthday girl’ status ends on Monday, so this special ends on Monday 21 April 2014 too!


How NOT to Wear Nail Colours

April 13th, 2014 by Kim Bolsover

About four hundred years ago, I nearly fell off the sofa when I saw Joan Collins in an episode of ‘Dynasty’ wearing an orangey-coral nail polish alongside her usual bright bluey-red lipstick…

I have no idea what any of the characters had to say or what the scene was about as I was totally distracted by this completely ugly mis-match of colours.

And, as you can see, it left an indelible impression on my psyche, and I am still troubled by it to this day!

  • By the way, if you or anyone you know has a photo of this tragic incident, please send me a copy!

How to do it the right way!

Choose nail polish colours to match the clothes, accessories and make-up that you’re wearing:

  • If you have Cool skin tones, then (hopefully) your clothes, accessories and make-up will all have complementary Cool tones too. So it should be easy for you to choose Cool tones for your nail polish as well
  • Similarly, if you have Warm skin tones, then (hopefully) you’ll be looking fabulous in complementary warm-toned clothes, accessories and make-up. So choosing Warm tones for your nail polish should be easy-peasy

And this is where your swatch wallet may come in very useful.

How to use your swatch wallet to choose nail polish colours

colour suppliesThe idea is not to match the nail polish with the swatches. You will never do this absolutely, so please don’t waste your time.

The aim of the exercise is to see if the nail polish looks good alongside and with the colours in the wallet.

Hold the nail polish bottle across the complete range of colours to assess this properly:

  • Does it look as though it belongs with the colours in the wallet? Then try it!
  • Or does it look completely out of place? Then put it back on the shelf and save your hard-earned money

You can also use this exact same method to find the right shade of lipstick, jewellery, make-up, hair colour and all your CLOTHES!
