2010: a year of Hoyer Style Tips. An on-going blog from lips, frocks, bods, bad hair, de-cluttering & big shoulders. JANUARY 2010 . . . .

Why not? I thought.

Having observed ‘style’ and ‘fashion’ and ‘pop culture’ and ‘people’ for years, each day in 2010 I thought I’d impart some kind of do-able advice.
Some you may love, some you may just totally loathe.

Either way, I just hope I remember to update it each day. And don’t forget to throw any suggestions this way too.

For Twittering and Facebook folk, I’ll be also updating each the tips there too, so feel free to contribute. (On Twitter the hashtag is #hoyerstylestips – ok, ok FB’ers, you don’t need to take any notice of that.)

So, will an all-juice cleanse make me feel fantastic? I'll let you know in 5 days . .

I am starting a 5 day ‘cleanse’ first thing Monday morning.

Basically it’s all about having 6 types of nutritionally sound ‘juices’ being delivered each morning (it’s $295 for the five days) to my home.

Happily, I am not even mildly freaked out by it, although my intake of a huge bowl of pasta this evening may be telling me something else.

So, I am kinda excited by what the ‘cleanse’ says it will bring me.
