It’s been (more than) a minute since my last post on here – in fact, this is my first blog of the year. I honestly don’t know where January has gone!
The first few weeks of 2022 have been a time of reflection for me. I have a big birthday coming up next month and my styling business is a whole decade old this year, my husband and I will celebrate 20 years together this September and I think all of these milestones have prompted me to look back on so many areas of my life and think about what I want the next chapter to hold.
I’m a big believer that life goes through phases, we have highs and lows, then the normal everyday in-between – it really feels like this year I’m entering a new phase and I’m so excited to bring you all along for the journey!
A full decade as a self-employed Personal Stylist definitely feels like something to celebrate!
In the time since I launched Anna Mewes – Personal Stylist I have had two children, moved house and seen thousands of women for styling sessions, wardrobe audits and personal shops. The level of job satisfaction I get is honestly second-to-none, I don’t ever feel like I’m at work as I truly love my job (and I’m so incredibly grateful for that privilege).
During 2022 you can expect to see a pared-down service menu from me with a real focus on providing the best possible experience for my one-to-one clients.
There will also be a lot of exciting developments for The Style Sanctuary (my online membership hub) as well as regular online courses and virtual workshops so I can reach more of you than ever and help you feel fabulous everyday
I’m writing my first book!
The process is slow but I’ve made a start and I’m putting it out there so I can be accountable to you all because this book really is for you.
This book is something I have been wanting to write for the past decade and 2022 is the year it will finally become a reality. I’m writing it very much with my clients in mind, in a way that I hope will be accessible, fun and most of all USEFUL!
It’s a style manual for real-life women who are time-poor and want easy, actionable steps to help them look and feel great on a daily basis. From colours and body shapes through to navigating trends, I’ve packed it with the knowledge I’ve gained working as a stylist and seeing thousands of women of all shapes and sizes during my career.
I’m aiming to launch it within the next six months so watch this space!
THE BLOG & SOCIAL MEDIA
You’ll be starting to see a bit of a change over on my social media channels in the coming weeks.
I’m focusing on quality content to help inform your purchase decisions and inspire your everyday style. There will be fewer posts on my grid but each upload will hopefully have a real purpose behind it (I’ll still be waffling on stories most days though!)
Part of this new focus will be regular blog posts – definitely a new post every Sunday which I’m hoping to increase as time goes by. I would love to know which topics in particular you’d like me to cover and how I can help you so feel free to slide into my DMs over on Instagram anytime with your suggestions
So there’s a little summary of what you can expect from me in the coming months – a post to set the tone for the year ahead really. I hope you’re as excited as I am to see where this next chapter takes us – and thank you for your support so far.
Until next time
