After 3 children and several years as a stay at home mum, I felt completely lost when it came to my personal style and I dreaded shopping for clothes. I was hiding in drab colours, wearing clothes that did nothing for my figure and the very thought of accessorizing would make my head spin!
At first, I was embarrassed and apprehensive about asking a personal stylist for help but when Marika visited my home to do a wardrobe edit she was so kind and patient; it was immediately clear that she knew exactly what I like as well as which colours and styles I should be wearing. She helped me to sort through my jumbled wardrobe to identify items that really suited me and to put some outfits together. I already felt so much better about getting dressed the next day and received plenty of compliments on the school run.
Normally the thought of a clothes shopping trip would fill me with dread but Marika managed to make our shopping trip both relaxing and fun - something I had never thought possible!
She did loads of research in advance and took care of all the travel and refreshment arrangements as well as taking me for a fabulous feel good treat. All I had to do was try the clothes on and choose which ones to buy.
I came home with a great selection of versatile clothes for a variety of occasions but most importantly, I came home with bags of confidence to help me shop smarter in the future.
Marika has helped me to rediscover my own sense of style. I now enjoy putting outfits together and feel great about what I'm wearing, even if I'm only dressing for a day at home. I'm even looking forward to my next shopping trip!

I can’t thank Marika enough. She understood what I needed (lack of time, ideas and I don’t enjoy shopping for myself!). We discussed what I wanted which was essentially just a day shopping. There was no pressure and the day wasn’t hurried. I thoroughly enjoyed it, Marika was great company with an obvious wealth of experience in this area. I now have a wardrobe of new clothes that look great and I feel great and confident in! I’d advise anyone who’s thinking about using Marika’s services to just go for it!

My wife booked me a personal shopping day with Marika as a birthday present. I’ve hit an age where, as my wife would put it, ‘need some help’ in the fashion department. It was a great day out and she easily picked out a new wardrobe for me. I was really happy that the shopping trip was kept to budget but I still ended up with stylish outfits. Marika was confident in what I needed and I learnt a lot about what suites me – I’ll be booking another shopping day with her in the future :)
