My wish for this book is that it encourages you to think about money in a way that makes you feel in control, uplifted and inspired to steer yourself towards a joyous and prosperous future. I want to share my contagious beliefs that dealing with your money can be fun and exciting. I know many women have a fractious relationship with their finances and can often be quite scared of dealing with things. I have felt that way in the past too. I do hope you will join me in this journey because it feels so much better to have a good relationship with your money than not.
I love the saying 'Look after your money, and your money will look after you'. It doesn't have to be scary, and you don't have to worry about becoming greedy if you focus on your finances; all that will happen is that this important area of your life will feel happier, freer and more bountiful. It is a glorious feeling and well within your reach. I hope that by the end of this book you will be eager and enthusiastic about your own finances, in fact, I'm sure you will!

If you are a reader of my blog ‘How to be Chic’ or follow me on social media, you might have seen my ‘30 Chic Days Series’ on making the most of staying at home. I have spent several weeks confined to the home. We all have.
My writing is all about living a simple, beautiful and successful life without spending a lot of money. I enjoy decorating my home on a budget, having a ‘make-do and mend’ mindset, being creative, and dreaming up my own inspiration.
After finishing the series, I knew it needed a wider audience and hence this book was created. I have polished up the daily entries and added to them where appropriate. In addition, at the end of this book I leave you with 21 Ways to be Chic at Home – a summary of inspiring ideas and points to have you feeling more buoyant.
I find with inspiration that it helps my state of mind enormously. Things can seem heavy and insurmountable, but then with a fresh perspective, suddenly the sun comes out and you are feeling brighter.
This doesn’t just apply during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic situation either. In all hard times, whether it is a divorce, death of a loved one or loss of a job or business, there is grief. But there is also always tomorrow. A better day. A day for living.
It is my wish that this book cheers you on, gives you new ideas to thrive with, inspires your creativity and helps you to carry on. You already have the magic within you, and I can’t wait to share all of my inspiration to help you bring it out.

Late summer heading into early autumn/fall is a such beautiful time of the year. You can feel everything growing still and soft; nature is slowing down and people are getting cozy. The most stunning colours can be found outdoors at this time.
Despite the natural beauty and your looking forward to the coziness of winter, you find that a few short months later yet again, things have gone awry. You have ploughed headlong into winter without design or plan; you are wearing the same clothes as last year because you have not put thought into your wardrobe; you have put on weight from indiscriminate eating and you are complaining in your head, or worse, out loud that ‘it’s cold today’. This was me!
Many warm-blooded creatures hibernate when it is cold out and go with their natural instincts by doing so. They do not enter the spring season stressed out; rather, animals waking up from hibernation are coming to sleepily, well rested and ready for the warmer season; so, why don’t we?
We would not go to sleep for months on end, but perhaps we can take a leaf out of their book and make winter a mental spa time of rejuvenation, beauty and pleasure.
This book is here to remind us of our exciting winter plans. It is easy to be enthusiastic about the winter season when the leaves are turning. Fall fashions are always fun to look forward to. We can rekindle our love for the colours of plum, navy and camel at this time of year. But a few months later the novelty has already worn off!
This book is a toolkit of all the ideas that have worked so well in previous winters, as well as new ideas I want to capture. I started this book in autumn, and finished it up in spring. I am so pleased to have tried all my ideas out in a ‘test’ environment and can confirm they work wonderfully well!
Discover strategies for not just surviving, but thriving this winter; on how to have a chic and beautiful winter season and emerge, like a butterfly ready for a gorgeous spring and summer.
Chapter 1. Know that winter is a different season
Start winter with a goal
Be ahead of the game
Look forward to winter
Chapter 2. Create a winter menu plan
Breakfasts that are warming, filling and healthy
Lunches for work and home
Dinners – tweak the winter classics
Fiona’s favourite winter recipes
Chapter 3. Break up the long winter
Learn something or have a project to complete
Chapter 4. Work on feeling good
Home as your winter sanctuary
Dress in clothes that make you feel good
Be cozy when you are at home
Take care of your grooming
Are you bored with everything that’s hanging in your closet, and think that the only solution is to go out and buy something new?
Well, this book shows you how to learn to love dressing yourself again, starting with what you already own and combining that with a new season’s mindset… so you can have fun, feel good, look fabulous and all without spending a bomb. Sound good?
If you don't know how to appreciate the clothes you already have, you will forever be adding to your closet and wondering why nothing feels exciting to you.
In The Chic Closet you will find out:
- Inspired ways to regain your excitement for your wardrobe
- Fun tips on building your own 'personal brand'
- How your closet can be a powerful slimming tool
- Why your muse is such an important part of styling yourself
- Why creating your own 'fashion uniform' could be the best thing you ever did
- How to create the perfect wardrobe for you, your budget and your lifestyle
The easier it is to look good with minimal effort, the better your life will be.
Far from being frivilous and selfish, taking the time to learn how to figure out your ideal style actually lets you give more to others. You are more productive and you get to feel amazing at the same time. Life becomes easier and less stressful. Win/win/win/win!
Even if you think style doesn't matter, it does.
You might think people don't notice what you wear and how you wear it, but they do, even if subconsciously. But more than that, it just feels good to look good. You truly can live a better life when you dress better. Why not try something new?
And the good news is that it doesn't have to take a lot of money - or time - to elevate your personal style.
My philosophy is based on inspiration, thrift, elegance, self-development and fun. If something is not enjoyable and easy, then what's the point?
In The Chic Closet you will find out how to fall in love with your wardrobe all over again, and align your look with the images on your Pinterest page that you covet. This will help you find out why the disconnect between those stylish looks and how you dress every day.
If you are ready to uplevel your personal style in a fresh and inspiring way, download The Chic Closet and join Fiona on your journey to a chic personal style which fully clicks with the ideal you!
