Shawna is the non-stop-shopper-turned-persistent-declutter-er behind Practically Minimal.
After too many years of over-buying and battling with overstuffed closets, Shawna began to wonder if less may actually be more. She started exploring minimalism about six years ago and hasn’t looked back.
Today through her blog, Virtual Decluttering Parties and clutter-clearing programs, Shawna helps people clean up and simplify their homes, offices and digital spaces so that they can focus on what makes them happy and successful.
Success stylist Tina Spoletini combines her formidable fashion flair with personalized mentorship sessions on self-love and confidence-building, helping her clients feel fabulous, dressing in ensembles complimenting their various body shapes and sizes. Growing up as a plus-sized beauty, like many women who don’t “fit” in, Tina found herself at odds with society’s sizeist perspective on the female physical ideal. But, even though shopping in a world made for smaller women could be an exercise in futility and self-loathing, the right outfit that flattered her curves would always come through, erasing any self-destructive thoughts and making her feel gorgeous and revitalized. Tina quickly learned that she had to find her own way to stand out with distinctive accessories and touches of self-expression. Enhancing any outfit, no matter how casual, with eye-catching jewellery has become her signature look. Circumstances may have compromised her own self-esteem at times, but everything has come together to make Tina Spoletini even more determined to use her talents and training to help other women re-discover themselves and build the confidence they need to live the life they imagine. After all, chic comes in every shape!
