I'm Louise Valsinger and I am an image consultant with House of Colour.
Over the last few years, I’ve managed to finally lose my baby weight (only took 8 years!).
As a result, I needed to buy some new clothes. However, it became very apparent that I was completely stumbling around in the dark with no idea what colours or styles suited me. Then my friend Katy suggested I get my colours done by House of Colour.
When I had my colours analysed, it was like a lightbulb was turned on. Suddenly, I knew what colours to buy that actually made me look good and didn't receive the customary, 'Are you feeling okay, you look really tired?' comments I used to often get.
Then, fast forward to two months and I completed the process by getting my style done. This was revelatory! I now know what neckline to wear, length of skirt, fabric type, texture, size of print etc.
In short, this process has changed my life! I've gone from dreading choosing what to wear in the morning to positively looking forward to it. I've never had FEWER CLOTHES but SO MUCH TO WEAR.
It's unbelievable. And because everything is in the right colour and style for me, everything goes with everything else. So, making a decision is effortless!
I found the process so transformative that I positively beamed when telling people about it. I was having such a conversation with my friend, Lisa, when she suggested I should train up and become a consultant for others.
The idea brought me such joy that I started to look into what it would involve and the rest as they say is history.
As well as being an image consultant for House of Colour, I am also a secondary school teacher of Biology and Psychology.
With two jobs and two young children there are a lot of balls to juggle but it is all worth it as it brings me such joy to help people feel good about themselves.
