You Are NOT Alone

Sol Reflection

“I am here with youuuuu. Though we’re far apart, you’re always in my hearttttt.” Michael Jackson – one of his more melodramatic songs (I love me some artsy drama)    But that’s really what I came to say. That I’m here.  I’m here for your questions, style concerns, and celebrations. I’m here for all the … Read More

I Can’t Quit This Color

Sol Reflection

I can’t quit bright pink, but I don’t know if I want to.  I love PINK and it represents my fun, bubbly personality. It reminds me of art school with dyed hair and being called cute and spritely. I mean….that high school photo ?. I’m turning 40 this year.  There’s a settling and wisdom rolling … Read More

It’s Not All About You

Sol Reflection

My client invested in herself through her work with me, but she’s not the only one benefiting.    If you believe life would be richer when anyone who had something great to share felt confident enough in their skin to share it, find a personal style that truly reflects who you are. Because when you look … Read More

That Photo of You Sucks

Sol Reflection

Why would I say that to you??  Turns out, I didn’t. YOU said it to you. And you do it alot.  You seee a photo and pick yourself apart, limb by limb.  This is objectification – something I know you don’t want to be accused of.  It’s also a load of crap.  Whether you like … Read More

You Need to Hear This

Sol Reflection

Y’all loved the Marianne Williamson quote in my last newsletter (it’s copied again at the bottom), and here’s another one I’ve got lots of feelings about.  “Humility is all well and good until it gets in the way of our generosity. You are the Light of the world. Go forth, enjoy, and let your light … Read More

Are You Afraid of This Too?

Sol Reflection

“Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’  Actually, who are you not to be?” -Marianne Williamson Here’s my best guess of why we’re afraid of our light.  Belonging.  People … Read More

Let’s Boycott This Word in 2024

Sol Reflection

I don’t want to say the word, yet I hear it ALL THE TIME.  I understand what you could mean by it, but words matter.  So the word that chaps my puss (feel free to borrow this phrase from my bestie ?) is FLATTERING. I deleted “flattering” from my vocab entirely after a great convo … Read More

You Basically Have to Love Yourself

Sol Reflection

I got this response to a recent newsletter: “I LOVE water, so I must love 50-70% of myself” The rest is earth, air, and space – love all of those too so that makes 100% in love.”   YES. That’s a mic drop moment so I kind of want to stop here and let you … Read More

Watch Out for Black Friday

Sol Reflection

Before you enter the worldwide Black Friday web, I want to tell you that the most common experience my clients have is to buy clothes just because they’re on sale.  Sale-only-buying is a practice of undervaluing yourself, often leading you to buy things you don’t truly love. Although it feels like a cost-saving plan, it’s … Read More
