Feel Like Your Losing Yourself In A Partnership? Trinny Tells Us All About How She’s Reclaiming Herself.

Back in the noughties, we worshipped the style bible written by Trinny and Susannah – and while the duo may no longer grace our televisions each week, their advice on the importance of proportion and finding a bra that truly fits will never be forgotten.

On episode 132 of The Thinkergirls Pod Channel, Stacey and Kristie were joined by Trinny Woodall herself for an amazing chat about moving from a partnership to a solo career, self-confidence and Australian style.

While we often think of Trinny and Susannah together, since embarking on their own professional endeavours each of their careers have reached crazy new heights.

So, the other bit gets slightly kind of supressed.”

“[Social media] allowed me to rediscover the one hundred percent part of me. Because I had, you know, spent so long repressing it.”

While at times, in a partnership, Trinny felt that she was almost playing a role, she has found freedom in her solo career that has allowed for innovation. Her …
