I am loving summer fashion trends this year. It is full of colour and life. I enjoy browsing the high street shops, just to take in all the lovely summer fashion designs. Summer is one of my favourite fashion seasons. Just incase you are wondering which summer fashion styles are in vogue this 2019, here are some summer fashion trends you may spot when out and about –

Flat Footwear

I am a huge lover of fans. You can easily catch me rocking a pair especially in the summer months. Most times, I am out and about with the twins, so wearing heels is usually not practical. I save them for when I don’t have to take too many steps.

Good to know flats are popular this summer. I have been wearing them a lot this summer holiday.

 

Oversized Hats

I love wearing oversized hats in the summer months. They protect me from the harsh sun rays and keep me stylish at the same time. So I am happy to see oversized hats in vogue this year.

I see all sorts of oversized hat designs in the shops and on social media. It is amazing to see there are so many options available.

 

Tie-Dye Pieces

I love tie-dye pieces. They are always colourful and summer is all about colour so not surprised to see it is trending this summer. It is good to see a 60s fashion trend back in vogue in 2019.

This is one trend I am looking forward to shopping this season. I am hoping to get some subtle tie-dye pieces to take on holiday with me.

Say It With Neon

If you a lover of colour, you would love the fact that Neon is back in trend this summer. This is not a trend I can see myself exploring ever, but I do like seeing the pieces on those brave enough to wear them. They are usually eye catching and really pretty.

 

Shorts For Summer

Shorts are always on trend in the summer months. They are stylish and comfy to wear, which is why they are always so popular. I love my shorts and pretty much live in them during the summer months. Leggings are my preferred pants but it can get too warm for them at this time of the year. Which is why I wear more of shorts.

The knee length shorts- what the fashion critics call sensible shorts are now on trend, and I am loving it. I find them more comfortable to wear when  out and about.

How to add Wow to your business without packing up and moving

*Collaborative post.

Having your clients visit your office is a great way to connect with them and make a lasting impression. Your client’s first impression of your office can make or break your future working relationship with them, therefore it’s important to impress.

You’ve worked hard to gain your clients, so it’s essential that you deliver on their expectations and more in order to keep them. When it comes to impressing your clients, however, there’s no need to up and move office. Here are some ways you can add the wow factor to your business.

Always have a clean and tidy office

It might go without saying but maintaining a clean and tidy office space is an obvious way to impress office visitors. A dirty or unhygienic office could make clients disappear, as well as give your business a bad rep. So, it’s important to keep your office clean at all times, including desktops, bathrooms and kitchen areas.

However, a tidy office goes beyond cleaning. Is the paint of the walls chipped? Are tatty, outdated magazines left around your lobby? The visual aspects of your office are just as important to creating a welcoming and impressive environment, therefore, you should keep on top of your office’s appearance and make sure it looks fresh.

 

Make the visit personalised

When it comes to your clients, you want to make them feel valued. If you have an appointment arranged with a client, adding personal touches can go a long way. For example,thebalancesmb.comrecommends displaying a lobby board that welcomes your visitor the moment they arrive.

Employees should also be aware of visitors coming into the office and give a warm welcome to guests. You want to communicate to your client that they are valued within your business, so it’s important to be consistent.

 

Offer self-serve refreshments          

Another way to impress clients is by offering them high quality refreshments and snacks. Invest in a coffee machine and water cooler that your visitors can use and serve themselves whilst they wait. Have fresh fruit or healthy snacks on display for clients too.

For any existing clients, you can use your past experiences to personalise their experience further and provide them with refreshments you know they like, such as a green tea. This observation shows clients you care about them and provides an added touch to their experience.

 

Recognise the importance of a receptionist

First impressions are important when it comes to winning business. A receptionist plays an important role in how your organisation is perceived by visitors and are often a first point of contact.

However, as a smaller business, you might not have a receptionist in place. In fact, you might not even have a “professional” office. There’s no need to fear though, as having a Virtual Office in London allows your business to simply book an office or meeting room without having to rent physical space. This is a great way to wow clients and give a good impression of your business, all the while being cost-effective.

 

Why you should treat yourself regularly

*Collaborative post.

It is very important to treat yourself every now and again. We spend so much time working and taking care of others that we sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves. I know we mums are so guilty of this. We spend hours taking care of the children and running the home, neglecting ourselves in the process.  I am guilty of putting myself last almost every time. Life gets so busy with stuff that needs doing and it is super easy to care for yourself. We forget that for us to be our best, we have to feel good and treat ourselves regularly.

This post is a reminder for you to take care of yourself and treat yourself to some luxuries from time to time. If you wondering how you should treat yourself regularly, here are some ideas you may like.

 

Buy yourself that jewellery

Diamonds are a woman’s best friend, and it is a lovely way of treating yourself. I recently came across Chapelle Jewellers and I fell in love with their amazing selection of jewellery and watches. I would love to spoil myself with some diamond earrings in future. Earrings are my favourite kind of jewellery. They are so precious and I like investing in them because I wear them pretty much everyday.

Buying yourself jewellery is a great way to treat yourself if you are into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings and the rest.

 

Book yourself in for a massage

I love having a massage. It leaves me relaxed and ready to get on with what needs doing. Having regular massages is a way to treat yourself. It may be pricey to get an hour’s massage (anything else is too short) but it does a lot of good for your physical and mental health.

I am badly in need of a full body massage. I have not had one in awhile thanks to the busy summer holidays. So I will be booking a session in the next few days when we go on holiday.

Go on holiday

Holidays are expensive which is why so many people hardly go anywhere these days, but they don’t necessarily have to be. Holidays are a nice way to treat yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything luxurious or even outside the country. There are lots of cheap staycations available that would do wonders for your state of mind.

It is always a good idea to get out of the house for a bit and go somewhere different. Just being out of your home and away from your regular routine is a way to treat yourself. We have a couple of staycations planned this year and I am so looking forward to them. Holidays are a necessity and not a luxury.

 

Alone time

Being by yourself is a great way to unwind. I love my alone time a lot. Trips to the cinema by myself are amazing. I also love going for walks and shopping alone. The time alone gives me time to relax and think clearly. This is easily done when the kiddies are in school, so I make the most of it then.
