This week at home, I rediscovered the value of play. I painted each fingernail a different colour, here:
It reminded me not to take everything so seriously.
I’ve been posting a lot just recently around wardrobe detoxing and I love what I am creating and writing and offering to the world. I am guilty of undervaluing the role of play in my life. I’m all about todo lists and goals.

But sometimes play is important.
It’s particularly important while we are on lockdown or sheltering at home or social distancing. Even when the pandemic has subsided, play will still be important.
Play has always been a big factor in clothing, make up and personal styling and grooming.
Clothes designers create new worlds, new dreams, new visions of reality or make believe through creating clothes. Clothes have the power to take us out of ourselves, to create new versions of ourselves, to step into new lives. Clothes mark all major mile stones in our lives, from baptism to wedding
The value of play lies partly in balancing out the seriousness that adult life, grown up life, brings.
Why not use this time at home to have fun with your look. Experiment with your make up, hairstyle and clothes. Play. You don’t have to produce some sort of ‘clown’ version of yourself. The aim is to have fun, to do something of no consequence.
