I want to talk about anything but politics this month! So this newsletter will be filled with fun and informative information on my favorite topic - COLOR! Read below to learn about the color forecast for Spring/Summer 2021. (2020 can't last forever even though it seems as if it will!) There are beautiful colors on the horizon that will hopefully lift our spirits and help us move forward and put this year in the rear view mirror.

Most of us are looking forward to a "new beginning" in 2021. The best way to face a new year and new beginnings is by making sure you look and feel your best; and an Image Matters consultation will help you do just that. My consultation services are available either in person or on Zoom. My studio has always been a clean environment with plenty of sanitizing going on. My in-studio consultations are one on one and I will wear a mask if requested. (You can't wear a mask if we are doing Color Identity but can wear a mask for the Personal Style consultation, if you prefer.)

As Thanksgiving approaches I hope you can find time to be grateful for all your blessings, big or small. Quiet reflection and a moment to give thanks does wonders for the spirit.

Stay well. Stay healthy. Take care of yourself in whatever way feels most comfortable for you. Call me if I can help you look and feel better.

Burnt Coral

The Pantone Color Institute has forecasted 10 colors as the dominant trends for Spring/Summer 2021. I will discuss five of them in this newsletter and the remaining 5 in next month's newsletter.

According to Pantone Color Institute experts, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 emphasize our desire for a range of color that inspires ingenuity and inventiveness – colors whose versatility transcend the seasons and allow for more freedom of choice - colors that lend themselves to original color statements and whose flexibility easily adapts to our new and more fragmented lifestyle.

“Offering a range of shades illustrative of nature, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 underscores our desire for flexible color that works year-round. Infused with a genuine authenticity that continues to be increasingly important, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 combine a level of comfort and relaxation with sparks of energy that encourage and uplift our moods” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

As you can see, these forecasted colors are all light, bright and cheery. Let's talk about how to use these colors based on the palette of colors that works best for you.

These colors are right out of the Spring palette so for all my Springs out there, go for it! 2021 will be a good year for you to "shop till you drop" and extend your wardrobe.
Wear any of these shades from head to toe and marvel at how fresh and youthful you look - and feel.

Golden, red-haired Springs will look especially vibrant in the Marigold. Pair it with camel or khaki.

Light and fair, Springs with blond hair will sparkle in the green ash. Try mixing it with light navy - a fabulous combination.

Summers will do well in all shades except the Marigold which has too much of a golden undertone for your cooler skin tone. The Cerulean will be especially good on ashy blond Summers as they sparkle in all shades of blue. Pair it with stone or taupe.

Soft and gentle Summers with light brown hair will love the Burnt Coral.

If you are a deep Winter or Autumn with dark hair and dark eyes, these colors will be too light and bright to wear head to toe. You will do best to limit these shades to a blouse or camisole, or use them in a print balanced with black, chocolate, charcoal or navy.

These colors certainly inspire hope and give us a reason to go shopping again! I can't wait!
C Plex Capsules now available on Auto Ship!
Everyone should be using a Vitamin C product! Vitamin C has multiple benefits and can be used by all skin types.

Vitamin C helps promote cell regeneration and collagen production. It can ease the appearance of fine lines and age spots. And it adds an extra layer of emollience that makes your skin feel so soft!

I have been using C Plex Capsules for years and they have become my #1 selling product. Everyone loves the way their skin looks and feels after just a few days of using them.

One of the benefits of C Plex is the encapsulation. Vitamin C is an ingredient that is inherently very erratic and when exposed to light or air, it begins to oxidize. If you've ever bought a lotion or cream with Vitamin C in it, you probably noticed that once it is opened, a brown rim begins to form around the edge of the jar or bottle. That is the Vitamin C oxidizing. C Plex capsules don't do that. Every morning you are getting a fresh daily dose of Vitamin C as you twist the little tail off the capsule and apply.

I have had several cost increases on this product over the years and I never passed that increase on to clients because I wanted everyone to be able to use this fabulous product. Another price increase has hit me and now I am forced to increase the price. They have been priced at $32 for a tube of 30 capsules (a months supply) and as of January 1st, they will be priced at $35.

However, I am now able to offer C Plex Capsules on auto-ship and for the first year of shipments, the price will remain at $32 and the shipping will be free.

This is great news for those of you who love these capsules and just can't get to my studio in Fort Myers on a regular basis to pick them up. No worries. I will ship to you automatically every 30 days, keep the cost down and add NO SHIPPING CHARGES for the first 12 months.

How does this work? Email me, phone me (239-454-0044) or click here to let me know you want in on this special deal.
If you haven't tried C PLex Capsules, now is the time. I promise you will love them - and love your skin!
