Hi, I’m Beth! Thank you so much for joining me!
So, by way of background, I live in Birmingham with my husband and our three children (Flo, Freddie and Matilda). I spent the first fifteen years of my career as a lawyer, training initially in London and then working variously in City Centre Law Firms, investigating complaints against solicitors and finally reviewing suspected miscarriages of justice.
In 2009, when Matilda was 18 months old, I re-trained as Stylist. It wasn’t that I didn’t love my job – rather that it was time to pursue a different passion and also to run my own business. I was approaching a “significant” birthday and it was a now or never moment. Me being me, I took the plunge!
I run my styling business – Beth Goodrham Personal Stylist – www.bethgoodrham.com – where I style individual clients, run Style Events and workshops, speak at conferences, give advice on BBC Radio and write for magazines. I also work as a guest presenter on QVC, which I love! And increasingly I work with brands in an influencer capacity. This may involve featuring their clothes on Instagram, writing about their products on Style Guile, attending events or doing longer term campaigns.
So what else do you need to know? Hmmmm. Well I love to run and I’m a fan of keeping healthy – whether that’s by trying out different forms of exercise, eating well or getting plenty of sleep (I’m rubbish without sleep!) But alongside that I love a good flavoured gin or a glass of fizz and nothing beats a piece of fresh, homemade, cake or brownie. I think that it’s all about balance. My family and my friends are my world. As I get older, I hope that I get a little wiser and I hope that I can share that with others, either by dropping them a DM on Instagram, whizzing over an email or leaving them a comment. It’s true that people never forget how you make them feel. “Work hard, play hard and be kind” is my motto.
I hope that you’d like to hang out with me here and don’t forget to drop me an email or a DM anytime. You can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can find me on Instagram here
