Whether we are public figures or not, managing our appearance is an integral part of who we fundamentally are. Our looks make a visual statement about our lifestyles and personalities, and can even indicate our abilities and confidence levels. In present day society, image really does matter.

Janine Jauvel is constantly dictating and creating the image and style needs of today’s women and men. Clothes are wonderful tools that can be manipulated to present yourself to advantage. Regardless of your size and proportions, by recognising your physical assets and limitations, you can explore the ways in which clothing can be used to draw attention – to conceal, to camouflage and to create optical illusions.
Whatever your budget, fashion choices are endless due to the pioneering high street market. However, on the other hand, limitless choice can be just as confusing, so overall the key to choosing your wardrobe is to distinguish what suits your body shape and lifestyle demands. “The right selection of clothes, accessories and footwear will not only make you look great on a physical level but can also help you to feel good about yourself on a mental level – consequently improving your confidence! Wearing flattering styles and colours can lift your spirits, improve your outlook and will put a smile on your face. Together with the other guys at Nutrition Rocks we will provide a service for you that will improve your mind, body and spirit.”
