Karma Palette is all about making you feel good and looking after yourself. After working in the exciting but challenging fashion industry for 15 years, I know all about stress and how it can affect our daily lives. The best way I have found to feel good is to look after myself and do things that make me happy.
Lucky for you, one of my favourite things is looking after you! No matter if you have 5 min or a weekend free; I have lots of tips to help improve your wellbeing as well as your karma. By learning about the energetic anatomy during the various trainings and workshops I attended, I realised that our thoughts, emotions, words and actions are connected and integral to our happiness and wellbeing.
Karma means that we reap what we sow, which makes more and more sense when you learn about subtle energy. I now feel that I have a deeper knowledge of myself and that I am more in charge of what goes on in my mind. At the same time I feel more serene with the outside world and I gradually feel more myself. It is a constant process! Thank you for joining me for a metaphorical cup of tea while you explore all the things you can do to know yourself better and feel happier in your day to day life. I am currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but thanks to the worldwide web we can still work together no matter where you are.
I believe the most important benefit of Twin Hearts mediation was the feeling of deep relaxation and positive mind-set I experienced right after the meditation. The 10 weeks I spent practicing the meditation made feel more grounded, calm and improved my concentration abilities.
I used to always travel with a natural remedy kit for common ailments such as insect bites, sunburn or tummy bugs, now I don’t need anything as I can do healing on myself. This leaves me more room in my suitcase for souvenir shopping!
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.
I ordered an ultimate personal style book from Melanie, and I am really happy with the result. In general I know how to dress for my body type, but to finish the total package is sometimes hard. Melanie came with great options which are a bit out of my comfort zone, but at the same time fit me very well. Like the colour red she proposed for a dress, as I would always pick navy and black. I have difficulties choosing jewellery and I love the cute, timeless pieces Melanie suggested, like pearls and the fine gold necklaces. As a gift to start of the new look I received the cutest pearl earrings, which are wired all around with gold. It gives me ideas of how to combine my jewellery. I also have a hard time choosing shoes and there are some nice suggestions in my stylebook. I am happy with the lipstick suggestions, as on a daily basis I chose nude or natural lip colours, but I am now excited to try the different colours Melanie suggested with my skin tone. I have seen multiple stylebooks that Melanie has created and I love that you can see people's personalities back in the suggestions. She will explain for each item why she chose it. It's not just throwing some items together. And she will also not come with only current trend pieces. Instead she adds timeless items that suit you personally, which not makes it a style book for a season, but more a style book to keep.
The ultimate personal style book was beautifully presented and easy to digest. I enjoyed the mixture of hair, makeup tips as well as outfit ideas and it was lovely to see my colour personality laid out before me. The surprise gift was pretty – quite surprising and not something I would have thought of previously. I have been wearing it quite a lot and it’s really delicate and the heart symbol I adore. The follow up calls and emails were very helpful, especially the info about Bobbi Brown being available in Brussels! This has vastly changed how I see myself and my wardrobe– I had not considered white dresses before and would certainly never have thought about ballerina flats. It’s helped me be a little more focused in my shopping, now that I know what sort of things I’m going for. I would recommend this to other friends who are perhaps at a crossroads in their life and need a bit of help with identifying themselves stylistically.
