  1. Hello, again!              bags-152487_640    
    Last time I promised you a mascara blog.  I did write one, but not on this site.  If you want to read my 'Confessions Of A Mascara Tart'  please click here. 
    For this blog, I thought it was best to let you know what is going on with this new(ish) site.  I am behind because I had to go and help my husband with a family holiday cottage business on Skye (more on that in another post)
    For over ten years our site was, which still exists but is not being added to. It has lots of tips, so you might enjoy a little browse.
    In case you are wondering what this new site is all about it consists of the following
    Discover your  best colours to wear in clothes and makeup. And the most flattering clothes for your body shape, scale and personality.  I can even tell you which shape and size handbag is best!
    After training for style and colour, with Colour Me Beautiful, my husband picked me up at Glasgow airport then we hit the shops. "I need to find a new handbag," I said, "This one doesn't suit me!"
    "How can a handbag not suit you?" he laughed
    "You wait and see" was my riposte.
    Once I had found my bag a short while later, he wasn't laughing. "But that's amazing," he said, "I can't believe that getting the right bag has improved the look of your entire outfit."
    Once you've had your style and colours analysed (might sound scary, but it's fun) you might want a wardrobe weed.  Together we keep the best and ditch the rest.  Sounds drastic, but often a few accessories can sort out many mistakes. Imagine opening your wardrobe and loving the contents, instead of raking through the rails and drawers with a feeling of doom!
    And finding the right lippy really lights up your face!
    If you live too far to Dunoon this a great option

    This blog will be updated regularly with tips and recommendations for image, style, beauty, natural health, and much more.
    Next time - a little about easy stress management and  the Power Method Meditation 
    That's it for today.  See you soon!  If there is something you'd like to see here, or added to the site, plese leave a message in the comment box.

    Hello, and welcome to our new online home. Our old site was a dinosaur and became extinct!  I am Janet, the director of Calmer Ltd, trading as You Are Gorgeous!  ‘Director’ sounds grander than it is – in truth, there is just me with the occasional helping hand.  I mention this so you know you will be getting old-fashioned personal service.
    What is ‘You Are Gorgeous!”? Quite simply it’s one-stop for looking and feeling your best for less: Gorgeous Image and Lifestyle services, and a shop of image enhancing goodies.   I am a bit of a bargain-hunter, and my speciality is sourcing yummy things at gorgeous prices, and I will pass the savings onto you. Hurrah!
    There will also be gorgeous stuff that I will have to get for the shop, whatever the cost (within reason!) I just mention that in case you ever think my calculator, or brain, is broken when you see the price of the occasional ‘had to haves’!
    As well as goodies from our shop we will also be recommending fabulous items from other suppliers, within this blog.  For example, in the next post, I will let you into the secret of what I think is the best mascara of all time.  And as a mascara tart, that means a lot!
    So, what is all this about champagne?  If you see anything you like in our onsite shop*  before midnight on 30th September,  enter the enter the code ‘champagne2’ at checkout (case sensitive, and without the punctuation) to receive a gorgeous 15% off – valid until just before midnight on 30th September. (This will not apply to any recommended third party productsI)
    Have fun - and see you soon with some mascara tips and recommendations, from budget to high-end.
