Confidence

3 comments

At this current stage in my life I am the most confident that I have ever been, I'm not saying that nothing ever affects me but the majority of things don't. I have rambled a lot in the video I filmed so you can watch that if you want, but I've also included a summary below of what I covered, the less rambly version! I just want to note that this is from my experience and won't be the same for everyone but I hope that it might help some of you!


Learn to Accept Compliments
It's amazing when you think about how easy it is to believe the negative things people say and completely discard the positive. I understand that people can be so insecure that when others give them a compliment they don't believe it. What I found is to accept compliments, even if you think they are lying you should still accept it as it is something positive and over time you will start to believe it yourself. When you have learnt to accept compliments, you can then start complimenting yourself.

There's No Point in Comparing Yourself to Others
At the end of the day, no matter how much you compare yourself to another person you are never going to be them and they are never going to be you. There is nothing wrong with you being you, you are a beautiful and wonderful person, if you think you're different from others just remember that everyone is different and no one is the same. 

Accept Yourself For Who You Are
You need to first accept yourself for who you are and then you can start loving yourself. I know it is much easier said than done and it's not easy but the more you compliment yourself and focus on the positive things, the easier it will become.

Surround Yourself with Positive People
This is one of the most important points. I feel that if you are always surrounded by negative people then that negativity is going to rub off on you and that's not what you want, also people who bring you down you don't need in your life. I've seen it where friends are mean and bully each other but say they are only "joking", this behaviour can be hurtful and they are not true friends. True friends are those who build you up to be a better person and make you feel better about yourself, these are the people you need to be around. Don't feel bad about cutting someone out of your life if they are a bad influence and are making you feel rubbish, they shouldn't be behaving the way that they are and you deserve more than that. There is a quote that says "your outlook will be the average of the five people you spent the most time with", so make sure you pick them wisely.

Focus on the Positives
Now there may be things you don't like about yourself, but you should take a minute to think about what you do like about yourself. Now this may be a specific feature in your appearance, that you are good at sport, drawing or even that you are a kind loving person. Once you start focusing on these aspects you will start to feel better about yourself and learn that even though there are things you don't like, there are also things that you love.

There is Nothing Wrong with Loving Yourself
This is really important as some people think that loving yourself and becoming confident means becoming vain and this is not the case at all, confidence and vanity are two very different things. There is nothing wrong with loving yourself, it doesn't change who you are but allows you to live a more positive and happier life.

Becoming confident can be a long process but with hard work and determination, it's something that can be achieved. If you have any tips yourself leave them down below!

Review of Weleda Skin Food

Today I'm going to share with you one of my skincare saviours that does wonders for my skin, especially in it's times of need! Weleda Skin Food (£2.25/10ml) is a replenishing skin repair cream for dry patches and deeply penetrates. It's made with organic sunflower seed oil, rosemary extract, wild pansy, camomile and calendula to nourish the skin. Now you can use this all over your body on dry patches which works well, however I love to use this on my face.
Review of Weleda Skin Food
At times when my face has a few little dry patches or is generally just going crazy, I like to use this all over my face in the evening. The morning after using this my skin looks completely different, it's hydrated, glowing and my complexion looks a lot better! I have naturally oily skin so it doesn't sink in that well but it's not a problem as I use it in the evening and only when I feel my skin needs it. Also as you may know my skin is incredibly sensitive and this doesn't irritate it in the slightest.

 I literally cannot explain how much I love this product and am actually surprised it's never been featured before because I've been using it for over a year! If you have skin that gets dry or goes havoc especially when it's cold then I definitely recommend you trying this out.

I've got a new favourite piece in my wardrobe and it's this checked poncho. It's a great to add a little something extra to jeans and a jumper, it also makes you look like you have put more effort into your outfit when all you've really done is just thrown it on over the top off your outfit. I also like that you can put it over one shoulder so that you can see what you're wearing underneath. This is a very dark outfit as I styled it up with my Joni Jeans (which by the way fit amazingly) and black accessories, however I chose to wear a cream jumper so break up the black a little, however I've worn this outfit with a red jumper too which looks great!
