The Lifestyle Concept,
Offering you emotional and practical support in all areas of your life.
Hello there, and welcome to The Lifestyle Concept, Destination Happy…
I have, over the last few months, mulled over in my mind what on earth do I call myself? A PA/Girl Friday? Well yes, I am those things (I am a qualified PA) but the truth is, I help people move forward in a positive manner. I will sit with you, discuss how I can help you and then form a plan. For some people, it could be taking a whole of stuff to a charity shop, help you re-style your home, clear the garden, organise your time better (less stress) bring in some systems, including sorting your paperwork. On the larger project side of things, I can help you downsize, move, help you organise an event (find venue choices), walk your dog (I am a huge dog fan and fully insured), keep an eye on your children whilst you go out for the day and spoil yourself (I am DBS checked) help you paint your property, suggest interior ideas, home styling as well as wardrobe styling and decluttering (my favourite thing). Is it possible to be everything for everyone? The answer would, in normal circumstances, be a resounding NO! but in my 53 years on this earth I have experienced a wide-reaching range of challenges, all of which have helped me grow and learn. Even if I don't have a solution I can assure you, I will know someone who has.
I have taken on many challenges in my own life which includes everything from gardening (which I love), decluttering my property and my wardrobe, learning to let go of what no longer serves me or no longer need and navigating this thing called life as smoothly as I can. I've had a colourful life - living in both London and Los Angeles and I have worked in TV, Music, high-end skincare and legal industries as well as being a PA to some pretty interesting characters. Like all of us, I have had ups and downs but I always think it's how you handle the knocks that define the rest of your life. I have worked on my own personal development over the years including Hypnotherapy, educational courses, positive living groups, meditation, empowering books, CBT and to realise that the moment of happiness in your life should be right now. This moment in your life is guaranteed. I have found, through my 'research' some easy to apply practices that can help you find that inner peace that we all seek. Over and above the spiritual and mental growth, Finding the right (and easy to do) meditation practice and generally working on bringing fun into my life has helped me grow stronger. I am now living a truly authentic life.
Who I am is my word. I want to use my experiences to help others move forward in whatever way they need my help. It could that you need someone to do a Speed Dating night in Bournemouth or Southampton with you!
In 2014, I came down to beautiful Dorset from London and launched myself into trying to “save” the high street in Highcliffe along with some other lovely people. I re-formed a litter picking group, joined the Highcliffe Centre Partnership and was actively involved in helping to regenerate the high street, including doing the marketing for the Highcliffe Food Festival for three years. One of the highlights was the painting of the bollards with my friend Helen. It was a pleasure to see how many people appreciated something so small, adding colour to the high street. It gave me a sense of what I wanted to do - help communities and people get the most out of their lives. It is what I love to do and what I do best.
I will come to see you, give you an hour of my time free of charge, and work out what I can help you with and prepare a proposal based on what is needed. Perhaps you just need some life guidance, a shoulder to lean on or a friendly ear. I'm your '#destination happy' girl and I look forward to helping you become the best version of you.
