Posted on February 14, 2014 by Repertoire“There is only one happiness in life to love and be loved” George Sand Never has a quote been more true or apparent than on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day has never passed without notice; with young love eagerly awaiting acknowledgement, old romances remembering and appreciating each other, and those cynics complaining that the day was started by Hallmark. Whatever you believe the legend has it that Valentine’s Day began in the third century, when Saint Valentinus penned a note on February 14 to a martyr and signed it ‘your Valentine’. Therefore the true origins really come from support of one another and passing on a message of caring. So embrace the day and pass on your own message of love to whoever is special in your life, be it your partner, husband, wife or just a close friend or family member. Who can argue with showing someone that they are cared for? All women can do with being appreciated and empowering others to feel the same. An amazing little book ‘The Book of Love’ by Chronicle Books is the perfect gift. It covers everything from love charms, aphrodisiacs, to tips on how to stay in love forever. You can look up your astrological love match, learn to use terms of endearment in different languages such as ‘mon petit chou’ French for ‘my little cabbage.’ With a gorgeous textured cover it is a perfect keepsake and gift to spread the love on Valentine’s Day. Happy Valentine’s Day xx

Although you're back to work, you can still feel that holiday magic...Stay Relaxed: With the fresh summer scent of cucumber and the time to relax your whole body, treating yourself to a cucumber eye therapy session could ease you back to work looking and feeling great. Grab a cold cucumber from the refrigerator and cut two thick slices. Then, find a comfortable place to relax and set the cucumbers over your closed eyes for about 10 to 15 minutes. The cucumbers will act as a cold compress on your eyes to hydrate and reduce puffiness. Plan Activities: Revive the excitement of anticipation by arranging fun activities, such as having dinner with friends, starting a new class or hobby, attending a sporting event, going to the movies. Choose activities that meet your budget and interests, and that you know will give you a thrill. Plan Your Next Holiday: Making plans, or looking into travel packages for your next trip can keep you motivated about being back at work. After all, work is the means for your goals, plus you'll have something to look forward to. Get ideas from airline travel websites, reviews, photos and travel brochures. Once your travel plans are underway it's a good idea to think about your travel wardrobe and take advantage of any end of season sales. The Scent of Summer: Burn tropical scented candles or wear fragrances that remind you of your holidays; a sure way to bring back those happy feelings at work and home. Also try a citrus scented shower gel to start your day and a couple of candles with a bath in the evening, to keep your relaxed disposition. The Three R's: Relax, Read and Reflect. On holiday we may have had the chance to read a novel, do a crossword or just lie on a deck chair day dreaming. Some of us may have even been lucky enough to have had an afternoon siesta. Try to do at least one of these things on your day off! So often the holiday reading collects dust, the newspaper crosswords go in the bin and the thought of a siesta is associated only with Mexicans. This doesn't have to be the case as we return to our working routine, we should reflect on what we really enjoy and make time for it. Flowers: Flowers always bring beauty, colour and often a gorgeous scent to any environment. Continue the holiday theme with a brightly coloured bouquet: Hibiscus, Bird of Paradise, Frangipani, just to name a few, are great reminders of summer. Walking: Going for walks before or after work can prolong the holiday feeling with just the fresh air, a chance for socialising and taking advantage of daylight saving. Walking also helps you to fit into your work clothes again after the festive season's indulgences. Music: It's surprising how little we watch the television when on holiday, and by turning off the T.V and listening to music instead, you can relive the social interaction and relaxation, so important for a balanced life.
We trust your holiday was everything you had hoped for and that the "holiday feeling" lingers on for a while yet - The Repertoire Team

Chic your outfit instantly with a great clutch... so on-trend right now!!
Who would have thought the diminutive clutch would replace the oversized tote in our “favourite everyday bags” rotation? Maybe it’s the freedom that comes with having to pare down our essentials. Carrying a phone, keys, lipstick and cash is far more liberating than carrying the full contents of our top desk drawer. And there’s the distinct allure of a bag that you can carry to a business meeting or a black tie bash. Besides, who doesn’t love an accessory that begs you with eponymous charm to clutch it close? Maybe it’s the effect of all our high-low dressing, the cultivation of daytime glamour and the focus on statement pieces that have all combined to make the clutch the bag of the season.
Functional, fashionable and chic - all essential design elements of our superior quality handbags in hot colours, textures and metallics are at Repertoire now... Click here for the latest collection.

Repertoire LOUNGE - Sacred Tribe - is going fast... be in quick... In stores only!!
Belonging is a human emotion, the need to be an accepted member of a group. Every single one of us craves the feeling of being part of something bigger than ourselves.By nature, we are tribal, centuries ago tribal culture was necessary for our survival. Woman would come together and share their stories, hopes and dreams. Older woman would guide, teach and mentor younger woman. But increasingly, we have become disconnected from our tribe. We know our people are out there – somewhere, anywhere – but at times we feel lost and disconnected from them. We love that at Repertoire we have created a tribe of like minded women who come together to share and bond over more than just fashion. The Sacred Tribe story was created to celebrate the strong, beautiful, confident woman who connect and share their personal stories and journey’s with us… together we are never alone.
