Liz here - my gorgeous Rachel never ceases to amaze me.... she has just confessed that she was quoting me at school today trying to bring a feelgood factor to one of her classes. I suppose I've been avoiding putting too much up on our blog - as I really want it to be for teens, by teens, but it is also a way for me to teach all the things I teach my adult clients, to all the teens who want to know how to feel good about themselves and look their best too. You see, if many of the ladies I deal with, had learned all I have to teach when they were teens, they would not have the hangups they have today.
You know that I work as a Stylist, but you can also have a look at www.lifestyleclinic.ie to see the other work I do. I am particularly conscious about self esteem. Good self esteem is a wonderful gift. It is something that even the most fragile of people can work on and build over time. Every time we give ourselves even a little compliment, we are building our self esteem. Perhaps this is something you can work on yourself. If you are struggling with how you feel about your appearance, be sure to talk to someone who cares as they will often have no idea how you are feeling and can help you see your good points. If you need a little more help, you can always come to see me, in total confidence and avail of my special teen rates at the lifestyle clinic.
From now on, I will be sharing lots of teen hints and tips on this blog and just in case Rachel got my quote wrong - it is 'life is your catwalk, choose to look good and feel great every day". Let me know what you think!

Firstly, there's the recycling aspect, then there's the kind of crazy fun day out which starts a bit to early, there's the good feeling of having cleared out and being organised, there's the feelgood factor of sharing well cared for belongings with others, for a really good price and last but not least there's the cash €€€€€€€€. I often feel reluctant to start, but feel just great afterwards. There are car boot sales all over the place these days and for this reason, I thought there would be fewer customers. I was completely wrong. There is a big and regular clientele. people just love a bargain. I love to see some much loved clothes and belongings going to a new owner who is delighted to get them for a cheap price.
Rachel here - today, my red leather jacket I've has had for years went to a lovely little girl for just a couple of euro. Her Mom was delighted with the bargain. Our collection of Sylvanians has gone to lots of new homes and our beanies have too. I'm delighted with the space in my wardrobe now that some of my clothes have gone to new owners. The buzz of the car boot sale was great. We had lovely home baked cakes from one of the stalls. I was tempted to buy a few bits and pieces, but having just cleared out, decided not to bring anything new home for now Some people bought more than they brought to sell! Anyway, we're saving! Clearing out my toys brought back so many happy memories. I kept a few of the special ones. Some things are just too hard to part with. So get clearing girls!

Liz here - If you have done well, you are fantastic. If you have done very well and still feel disappointed - are you just too hard on yourself?. If your friends did better than you - what other things are you really good at? If for some reason you did badly - you can do well in future exams, just keep trying and notice all you have learned from the Junior Cert experience.

Rachel here - will I ever forget my sore legs last week?? I had been jogging in the summer to avoid hitting the hockey wall in September - but guess what? it didn't work - I may be fit - but not hockey fit..... I'm delighted to be back playing a team sport, even though we were soaked to the skin last Saturday.... hockey is a big part of my life - I love the position I play and the interaction with other team members. I love the feeling of scoring that one important goal that will change the whole direction of the game and I love the sense of responsibility and the hope of getting to the later stages of the hockey junior cup.... imagine girls.... the Leinster Final... the croud cheering.... holding the trophy full of.....lemonade!!!! Wow. This could be our year. This is our year. Oh I wonder will I even get on the team.....anyways, see you tomorrow at 10.30 whatever the weather. Tough faces girls!!!
