Day 2551 - The Lovin' Life Linky - Dress Me Up You Tube Channel Edition

Today I give you a behind the scenes peek of a new You Tube channel.

Kristy McPhillips from Sash & Belle interviewing me for the Dress Me Up - Embrace Your Style You Tube series.

If you've been following me for a few years you might recall that I partnered with Kristy from Sash and Belle Handbags two years ago to put on a charity fashion event to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research.  We called that event Dress Me Up.

Fast forward to 2016 and Kristy decided to revamp the Dress Me Up concept.  At the original event the charity idea was only part of the overall mission. The other components were made up of helping women to feel good about themselves and of course also promoting local businesses.

After much brainstorming at one of my Achieve Beyond Home Business Networks we came up with the idea of creating a You Tube series that takes Dress Me Up beyond event status into a resource captured on film for global reach, to not only inspire and motivate women to embrace their style, but to promote Aussie businesses in the process.

Kristy's new concept will see interviews with people in fashion, beauty, lifestyle, charity, business, bloggers and coaches like me who encourage women to believe in themselves to help with confidence and self esteem.

Why is a handbag label so invested in helping women feel good about themselves? Because that is WHY she created the Sash & Belle brand.  A new handbag is a great feel good accessory and if a new handbag can help you feel good about yourself, then imagine what a handbag label interviewing a bunch of inspiring women can do for a person's self worth.

The brainstorming only took place two weeks ago and Kristy managed to get a date, a venue, a clothing range, some equipment, a script, three local business women AND her new season handbags together for filming yesterday.

It's amazing what you can achieve when you love what you do.

Here are some behind the scenes photos of yesterday's shoot.
