Ask Alexandria: Tame Your Many 1,000s of Digital Photos & How Do You Look Good on a Budget?
Episode 8. Today we’re shifting gears a bit. This episode is all about you! Each month I do a special Ask Alexandria episode, where I answer your questions about life, KonMari and style. This month’s questions are wide-ranging. There’s a lot about the KonMari Method and I explore how to tame your many, many thousands of digital photos. We discuss style, from capsule wardrobes to makeup tips. And you’ll hear how Jane Austen helped me get my start in the world of fashion and style.
Here are some highlights...
How to tame your digital photos
Be more intentional
To be master of your digital universe (specifically your photos), like so many things in life, it’s all about shifting your mindset. Let’s be honest… On a scale of 1 to 10 how intentional are you when you’re snapping pics on your phone? If you would describe yourself as “snap happy”, are you willing to invest the time it takes to sort through all these images?
Discard, organise & maintain
First focus on discarding. Slidebox is a great app to help you get all your photos under control. It’s a free app for iPhone and Android. It’s nicely designed and syncs seamlessly with iCloud. You can swipe up to quickly put photos in the trash. Slidebox helps you organise your photos with simple gestures and it’s much quicker than using the native Photos app.
Listen to the full episode for tips on how to shift your mindset, be more intentional with your photography & efficiently sort through all those photos.
For a minimal makeup look to suit you at any age, look no further. My favourite organic & sustainable luxury makeup brand, Kjaer Weis, has a fantastic mini tutorial for Ageless Beauty.

Style & My Story
My style journey began many years ago… during childhood. I started drawing “fancy ladies” when my mom read aloud to me in the evenings. This fostered a love of design and fashion that, eventually, inspired me to choose a career path to match.
