Hey Fashionistas! Since it's a new year, I decided that I want to share with you something I'm so passionate about, and something that matters to me. It's empowering women and helping them feel confident, powerful and strong. Yes you can do that using Fashion!!
First I want to clarify that confidence comes from within, if you overall have a negative image of yourself, non of this tips will help! We all have insecurities, trust me fashionistas, some days I wake up not the happiest, and we all have these days. Just know that the tips I'm about to give can help in the foundation of your self confidence.
Define your Style: You have to have a strong sense of personality, you have to be self aware of what you like, what kind of clothes really makes you feel yourself the most.
Buy more of the Pieces you Love: This is the easiest thing that I can tell you to do, which is something that I've been doing this past year. I noticed that I have my to go pieces that I'm always grabbing. Buy something that you feel good about wearing, and you'll find yourself having a huge range of clothes that you love.
Highlight your Strengths: Whether it's your waist line, your legs, or you shoulders, highlight these parts. There must be something you like about your body, let it be your strength.
The Special Occasion is Today: We always buy this dress or those shoes and wait for a special occasion to wear it. This occasion may never come, or when it comes that thing is out of style or you don't like it anymore. Everyday is a special occasion, embrace it.
If it doesn't Make you Feel Confident don't Wear it: If you wear it and you're not feeling it, don't wear it and go out! Cause you'll spend the whole time doubting your looks instead of feeling confident and happy. Wear what makes you feel amazing.
I know it's kinda late to talk about it.. But hey it's 2014 New Year Fresh Start!
So why not start with self confidence boosters?!!
#1 Stand Tall: Shoulders back, and heart forward! Its an immediate boost to your day, lead your life with your heart, so lean your heart forward, you'll feel a boost of confidence and happiness.
#2 Smile: Smile! It's contagious.. It's hard not to be happy about all the blessings that you have and the things in your life. The great thing about smiling is that it's contagious, it's like if you're smiling you could make someone else smile. And smiling is SEXY!
#3 Walk like you're on a mission: That mission is life! If you walk down the street faster and more confident, you'll get through everyday with more confidence.
#4 Step Out of your Comfort Zone: This means a lot of things! You can go to the front of your fitness class instead of the back, join a new club, or make a new friend.
#5 Be Bold: Wear a red lipstick, it's like your power booster.
#6 Break a Sweat: Working out make you feel confident, and makes you feel damn sexy. It also increases your endorphin and the hormones that make you happy.
#7 Find the Beauty in Others: If you recognize the beauty in others, you can see the beauty in yourself.
#8 Keep it Positive: No negative Talk!! If you catch yourself saying something negative about yourself whether it's to yourself or out loud, correct it and say something amazing about yourself.
#9 Dress to the 9's: Take care of yourself, If you're even going to the grocery store, or you're going for a walk with your girlfriend or anything, dress up a little.
#10 Reward Yourself: A bubble bath, a massage, or a mani padi. Do something for yourself, you deserve it for working so hard and I feel as a woman we are nurturing and we have the tendency to take care of others and we put ourselves last. Take care of yourself first then you're able to give more love for the others.
