During your one-on-one sessions, you will learn the practical application of inner beauty by exploring your relationship with outer beauty. This skill set creates harmony and coherence within the textures of your emotions, so you can experience your day with ease, appreciation, and kindness. My job is to empower you to achieve your goals. I will challenge you to attain a higher degree of emotional self-regulation while gaining greater competence in using the HeartMath tools, techniques and technology. We all need structure around our emotions, and that is where the HeartMath® system is most helpful.
The HeartMath® (HMI) Institute was founded in 1991. It is dedicated to researching how the heart communicates with the brain. Through research HMI has developed techniques that positively affect our emotional, physical, and mental well-being so we can have a greater quality of life. Every technique is meant to be integrated into our established routines, restructuring our emotional processes on-the-go. HMI has found that pairing a positive emotion with rhythmic breathing synchronizes all internal systems, allowing for a more composed and clear connection with our thoughts and feelings. This synchronization is beauty itself.
Everyone is unique, and each package will be tailored to your individual goals. Before each session, I will send an informative email of what to expect and any information to help you understand the concepts more clearly. The more you know, the greater your transformation and experience will be.
Sometimes words just can’t illustrate your unique style preferences. Communicating your style through images is often much more effective. When designing your Beauty Portfolio, I will encourage you to choose images that make your heart swell even if it is outside of your box so you can fully understand what your attracted to.
We will create your Beauty Portfolio as a way to give you a visual reminder and an organizational tool to define the look you are going for. By breaking down your lifestyle into style categories, you will be able to simplify your wardrobe for more efficiency and certainty when getting dressed for any occasion.
Together, we will take the time to create a head-to-toe portfolio, so you will always have a visual reference point of your new look. How you design your unique style is entirely up to you.
Closet Coherence is when your closet is filled with clothes that harmonize with one another to create a dynamic interconnected wardrobe. A coherent closet acts as a second skin that synchronizes the full aspects of your essence and personality. You will be able to intermix items of clothing to create multiple head-to-toe outfits that effortlessly connect to who you are.
You will carefully go through every piece of clothing in your wardrobe, from favorites, to least favorites. After you have decided on what stays and what goes, we will recreate outfits that reflect your desired style by referring to your Beauty Portfolio.
Keeping your lifestyle in mind, I will help you organize your closet for a more efficient morning. We will work together on creating the most effective and attractive space so you can be at ease when getting dressed.
We will also determine what you may need to complete your new wardrobe. Armed with your new, clearly defined clothing style in mind, you can confidently purchase what you need over time and within your budget. Whatever is to be donated I will happily take to a local charity.
While shopping may have felt like a cumbersome, disorganized task in the past, now that you truly understand how you want to express yourself through fashion, you will have a sense of ease while you shop and you will really enjoy your shopping experience.
We will visit the stores that reflect your desired style and revisit the stores you already love. You will focus on purchasing the items you need to complete your wardrobe. I will encourage you to create outfits as you shop, so you can confidently recreate the style you are going for.
This will also be the perfect opportunity for you to use any of the HeartMath® techniques to embrace your beauty and decrease stress. By creating coherence while you shop, you will choose the perfect outfit and feel incredible wearing it!
For a Hair Styling Lesson, you will first determine what style you want to learn by referring to your Beauty Portfolio. We will go through your hair products and tools that will give you the best results for your hair texture and desired style. I will provide you with step-by-step instructions and guide you through styling your hair. You will be doing most of the styling as I teach you. Learning a new style takes practice, but from my experience, anybody can style their hair!
A New Hairstyle is essential in pulling a “look” together, whether if it’s simple or extravagant. This appointment will be like any other hair appointment, but in your home. You can choose to get new hair color, a new haircut, or both. We will refer to your Beauty Portfolio for ideas and inspiration. A full studio set up, tools, smocks, towels, and products will be provided so you can sit back and relax.
During your Make-Up Lesson, Rachel will refer to your Beauty Portfolio and guide you in creating the perfect look for you. Your daily routine and time constraints will be considered when choosing products and application.
Rachel will help you determine what products, brushes, shades, and tones compliment your complexion. She will help you discard anything that doesn’t fit your preferred look. This step-by-step lesson will help you simplify any challenges you may encounter when working with make-up.
If you prefer a Skin Care Consultation, Rachel will address any concerns and questions to design the perfect regimen for your skin. Her goal is to guide you to healthy, silky, hydrated skin.
Whether if your skin is dry, sensitive, oily or a combination of all three, knowing the essential products and treatments will make all the difference. Rachel will focus on recommending the right combinations of products and ingredients that will give your skin an extra boost. Your morning and evening regimens will now be highlighted with care and balance for beautifully bright skin.
You’ve done the hard work, and claimed your own unique beauty and style—having a personal portrait is the cherry on top of this program. Whether you show the world or keep it just for yourself, a beautiful personal portrait can be a real confidence booster, and will help you to see the beautiful person you are!
In her peaceful little window-light studio in a Rockville artists’ collective, certified professional portrait photographer Tamzin Smith will embrace the transformation you have stepped into, and capture it through her photographic talent. Relax… no modeling experience required! Tamzin will quickly put you at ease, create a space where you can be yourself, meet you wherever you are at the moment, and work with you to create the best portraits you’ve ever had.
This package includes a 30-minute studio session with one or two looks/outfits (as time permits), and one full-resolution, fully-retouched portrait file (your choice from all the best shots). If you would like any more photographs and/or a longer session with more looks, you can make arrangements with Tamzin.
