I can honestly say even when I look my worse, I still feel confident and beautiful.
And that comes from being content in who I am. Knowing that I’m destined for greatness and that there’s no need to compete with or envy others because what is for me will be for me.
Being unapologetic in who I am. And knowing that I may not always ‘fit in’ which is fine because I’d rather stand out.
My wardrobe also makes me feel confident and beautiful. Call it materialistic or vanity if you want. But I feel the sexiest when I’m in a satin thigh slit maxi with a pair of ugly trainers and a supersized jacket (pretty sure I’ve blogged that look many time lol!) You are what you wear. You feel confident and ready to take on the world when you look your best. And that’s why I take pride in what I wear. Even on my ‘off days’. Not to say that’s what’s important in life. But it definitely does help!
What’s something you do daily to affirm yourself?
There isn’t anything specific I do daily to affirm myself. However what does help is surrounding myself with like mined people and those really support and believe in me even when I don’t. My group of friends are really supportive and I’m fortunate to have a close friend who’s also in the fashion industry who I speak to almost daily. We bounce of each other others urge for success which encourages and motivates us. I also have a lovely family who supports and respects my craft, and encourages me especially when I doubt myself.
