The Polished Effect Course last Saturday, was a fun day in an elegant setting. Thank you to the fantastic group of ladies who made my job so easy. They were a very engaged group of students who really  wanted to learn and are investing in their personal development.  The energy in the room throughout the day was great.⁣
Thank you Isobel kershaw @thestylistlondon for a brilliant masterclass in styling and branding.⁣
Thank you @the_landmark_london for helping to ensure the event ran smoothly and for the delicious meal and refreshment served.⁣
Here is an excerpt from one of the testimonials received. "I just wanted you to know that today was amazing. You are such a great teacher and although I was quite shy at first, thinking I was going to be judged, your aura and the environment really allowed me to relax. I would love to leave you a five star review! Please let me know where I can do this".⁣
Ladies, the next course is in February 2022⁣, would you like to attend? Please send me a dm to receive information about the course.

When you’re at work or in the office, if you’re making a cup of coffee or something warm to drink, do you offer to do the same for others ? 

It’s National Coffee Day in the U.S. today - here are some coffee etiquette tips for you to consider: 

- if you’re making a cup, be generous, you could ask if anyone else wants a cup of coffee.
- if you’re the last person to use the remaining filtered coffee, put on another pot. 
- clear up any granules of coffee or sugar, from the area.

Would you add any more tips ?
