Success Starts With Who You See In The Mirror

People often ask me. How is Hue and Style® different. And it's a great question. I genuinely believe that how I "style confidence" in someone before I style any outfit is what gets the results.

I use the proven science of enclothed cognition to help shift the way you believe in yourself and then show you how to put that self-belief on your body. For real, this is science, and it improves...

A Zoom Cocktail Party With Prosecco French 77 [Recipe]

Life may never be the same. Last night The Hubbs and I got dressed up for once in 2020 (I put on a red lip too), and we had a Zoom Cocktail party with our friends, a wonderful couple, in Toronto.
 
It the best 4 hours of connection issues, Prosecco French 77 mixology, house cat camera antics, and Christmas tree light show "tours."
 
It was proof that you don't need to be in the same...

On "Being Intimidating"

I got a question on my Instagram Stories yesterday and it’s always one of the biggest worries for women. It was about how not to come across as intimidating with personal image in male-dominated arenas.

I have an answer for all arenas.

If you have a rock-solid level of self-assurance and show up like it, you will ALWAYS be intimidating to somebody.

I want you to know that this...

2021 Pantone Color of The Year: Ultimate Grey + Illuminating

Pantone, the color authority, has released two selections for their Color Of The Year 2021 though, in my books, Ultimate Grey is a value so that means I'm always more focused on the sunny, bright hue called Illuminating.

The Blissful Breakthrough That Happens When You Show Up With Purpose

I'm not sure how to articulate what I feel. I'm writing this just after getting off my New Year-New Season Intention Setting session with my advanced mentorship clients. I taught a lesson on how to frame intentions in a whole new way - a way I've never seen or heard done before - and it landed with my people. Boy, did it land.
 
I watched these women's eyes light up with possibly,...

Journals are Journeys

I’ve been journaling since I was in Grade 5. It all started with a Woolworth’s unlined lockable pocket journal. I still have it. And since then, I’ve amassed dozens and dozens of journals from fancy moleskins to 50 cent Hilroy school notebooks. Each carries a journey from a piece of life.

From happiness to hurts, greatness to grief, these books, and the conversations with...

Country Drive Clarity

If there's one thing I love about living in rural Alberta, it that inevitably, you'll need to take a country drive. For me this morning, my drive came at just the time I needed it.

I was "itchy" for some clarity on my 2020 and what to "do next." I know I talked on the latest episode of the Confidence Shift Podcast about learning to "sit in the success." I did - well for about four full days,...

Sunday Brunch Love

It's Sunday, and for the last couple of weeks, I've been enjoying being present in my kitchen and with my #GustafsonTrio.

Today, I thought I'd share my Eggnog French Toast recipe.

We had it today along with maple syrup, B's sweet berry compote, icing sugar, and applewood smoked bacon.

No big, long message today, just a tiny reminder to enjoy the moment - every sight, sound, smell, taste.

Pay Attention To How You Do Something

I have this thing about being on the floor when I need to sort something creative out. Yesterday afternoon I pulled up a piece of carpet in my Hue and Style® HQ. I had meaningful work to do.

I was sorting out what I'll be teaching to my advanced mentorship clients next week to prepare for the new year. I thought I would teach the same lesson we did last year, but it doesn't seem to fit...

Give Your Meaningful Outcome Away

In Show Up Confident, I talk about finding your Meaningful Outcome. It's a more tangible, workable way to think about your purpose. For as long as I can remember, I've had a part of mine to "give confidence away." These three words have run everything I've done, offered, and given away.

In the last year or two, I wasn't sure how I wanted to give myself away to my local community charities. I...
