Your Voice Matters - Confidence Beyond 50

Red, Red and more…Red!


Did you know that red is the colour of confidence and sex appeal, strength and energy, Then just imagine what a touch of red lipstick and undies can do!

Are you feeling a little down and wrung out at the moment? Are life’s challenges getting to you? Put on your big girl panties (red), pop on a red dress (the one that make you feel fabulous), add a touch or red lipstick (the finishing touch) and say…’bring it on Universe!’

Confidence Chin up gorgeous don't let it get to you...

Maybe now is the time to invite something new into your life? Try wearing red undies…. What did you say Di,  red undies? In case you had not noticed … they are what you put on first when you get dressed in the morning.

Only you makes that choice, what colour, what style. Chris Brazel an amazing colour and Feng Shui expert says ‘ The undies cover the sacral chakra and the sacral chakra is the chakra of choice. The hips propel you forward and the legs take you to where you are walking to for the future.

So…..When you select your undies, the style, the colour each day you are making a choice about what it is that you to invite into your life. Is it love, a new career, improving your finances or even your health.
Each day you have the ability to make a choice about what it is that you want to invite into your life. Is red your choice?

And there is more….’Red stimulates the adrenal glands giving us the ability to survive. If you are run down or extremely tired, red food can be stimulating, energising and build up the immune system.’  Anjel Bryant, Colour Consultant


Any colour so long as it is red...


Of course that is not everything…when done with the physical …watch your words…your mind and body are listening… ensure that when you talk to yourself…go on I know you do!  I can hear you giggling! You know those voices in your head that go chatter, chatter, chatter…. ensure you are saying loving, supportive and encouraging words. In other words speak to you…just as you would to a beautiful friend.

It is said that when a woman wears red lipstick she is making a statement that she feels good about herself…and when that happens she separates herself from other women saying ‘I am here’

You look more attractive, you appear more confident, that red lipstick may entice you to behave more confidently and you are naturally more engaging and vibrant.

For centuries women have painted their lips red to enhance their appeal…way back to the Egyptians and Cleopatra…her red lipstick was made from crushed beetles…ours is a little more refined today and probably tastes better.

I think wearing red lipstick/undies/clothes suggest a woman has an edge, it makes you feel strong and confident.. red is making a bold statement.

It does not suit me you say?  There are many shades of red…try experimenting till you find one that suits your colouring… for dark hair and light skin try a blue base, if blonde opt for an orange base and if you are mature…try a red with a  pink base…

After all Nicole Kidman wears an orange based red and Angelina Jolie wears a blue based red….Two very different women…two very different appeals!  Bet they wear red underwear also!!!!

For now…whatever your hurt…remember this too shall pass! Whatever your heart is saying right now. Love it regardless…whether it has arrows shooting through it, it feels all curly and twisted or its being a devil…

Confidently ask...What is your heart saying

Tears may be part of your process at this time, welcome them warmly, embrace them… they are cleansing your soul…

weeping - can you do that with cionfidence

In fact tears are how our heart speaks when our lips cannot describe how much we have been hurt…if that is you…or someone you know ..be there to support you or them.

Do remember the sexiest curve on a woman’s  body is her smile…flaunt yours…and decorate it with red lipstick!

Any colour so long as red rose...

Have you got your big girl red panties on? Slipped into your little red dress (your take on the LBD maybe red),  and added a generous touch of red lipstick said ‘bring it on Universe’. If not you might like to give it a go.

I wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and festive season…
