New Year Confidence

2017

Each- and- every new year we wow to do better and take on new challenges, promising ourselves that this year we are going to do better than the year before. But come mid-year, and we start to take stock of all our set out intentions to move forward and out of our comfort zones. We realise that we have not achieved half of it. So, the question remains, how do we go about achieving our set out intentions? Personally, I believe that the key to that is Confidence.

Read on to discover my personal tips on achieving New Year Confidence.

Take care of yourself

It is amazing how much of a difference a new hair colour or smelling beautiful and glowing skin can have on your self-confidence. Looking good and feeling great is a fantastic boost to your self-image. So, take the time to take care of yourself indulge in those small things like a new lipstick or trying a new eye-make look. It will turn your mood around from feeling glum and grey to bright and sparkling.

Keys to confidence

Dress nicely

You cannot look all pretty and not be dressed nicely, if you dress nicely, you’ll feel good about yourself. A nice dress or a pants suits will make you feel successful, presentable and ready to tackle whatever the day hold and brings. Invest in good quality items and build your capsule wardrobe with pieces that will make you feel confident when going for that all important meeting or interview.

self confidence

Re-brand your self-image

Our mental picture of who and what we are, so often determines our confidence. If we feel good or negative about ourselves, we reflect that outwards. In the way, we carry ourselves and how we allow others to interact with us. Let 2017 be the year where you make the choice to re-brand your self-image. Make small changes, like having a mantra, my favourite is, I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM WORTHY, I AM CONFIDENT, I AM CAPABLE, I AM NOT LESS THEN OR BETTER THEN THOSE AROUND ME, repeat this every morning in front of the mirror and with time you will start to carry yourself in that manner and not allow yourself and others to make you feel small and worthless. Remember, who you want to be and how others perceive you, is your choice. So, choose to show you true worth.

Confidence

Think positive

This is an important part of re-branding your self- image and building self-confidence. Positive thinking can open- up new opportunities. It is all about the energy you bring into a situation, so if your energy is positive you will be more open to feel good about yourself and to become the best version of yourself.

believe IN YOURSELF result

Smile

A smile lights up your face and will instantly make you feel better and it will help you to be kinder to yourself and those around you. A small but beautiful thing that can have a wonderful chain reaction. Your smile is one of your best assets so use it well this new year.

STEPS TO A CONFIDENT YOU

Stand tall

Good posture will make you feel taller and more confident. If you stand tall and walk with confidence into any room people around you will take notice. Stand straight and pull your shoulders back and stand tall and walk talk and be proud and have confident in yourself, your beauty and that gorgeous smile.

MAKE 2017 THE YEAR OF CONFIDENCE

Have a wonderful 2017 and may you achieve at least one of your set out intentions for this new year.

how to make the most of your turtleneck this winter season

The turtleneck is quickly becoming this season’s most valuable player and pairing it with your favourite dress is sure to make you a fashion VIP.

Now why a turtleneck; well for a few good reasons: 1) You can forget your scarf at home and not worry about your neck being cold; 2) it is a nifty base layer as it can be dressed up or down depending on your mood of the day; and 3 the bonus reason, it works well with every neckline from a deep plunging V to crew neckline.

Here is just some of my favourite looks on how you can rock a turtleneck knit with just about any dress in your wardrobe.


Roll Neck Turtleneck And The Slip Dress

Keep it boudoir silky with a smooth pink roll neck turtleneck and an alluring striped waist trimming lace-trimmed slip dress. Add to it a pair of sexy gold ankle boots and a classy clutch and you have a raunchy but edgy #ootd.

Microblading All You Need To Know

Microblading all you need to know Fashions Finest

I generally do not like the idea of drastically changing my appearance but when a friend, Kim, trainee Microblading therapist, asked me to be a model for her Microblading course I hesitantly said yes. Now I was not really blessed with full eyebrows but loved them none the less!! So although hesitant I agreed to undergo the treatment and was wonderfully surprised at the outcome. Because I now have eyebrows that you can actually see. So I am happy!!
Microblading Before and After Fashions Finest result

So what is Microblading

Microblading is different from the permanent cosmetic tattoo as it is a more natural option that offers a semi-permanent result. The treatment is done with a pen-like tool that has 11 tiny needles at the tip. The therapist starts the treatment by numbing the skin with a numbing cream and once the skin is numbed she applies cosmetic -grade eyebrow dye. She then sweeps the dye pigment with her tool onto the brow area. The whole procedure takes two hours and you do feel a slight sting but no real pain.

After the first treatment you will have to wait for a period of four weeks to apply the second treatment. Now this is just to fill in any gaps and add a second color for dimension.

After the first treatment, your brows appear very dark and it is a bit of a shock if you are not used to full dark brows. After a couple of days of treating it with Vaseline, there is a slight scabbing but once healed you will see a definite but subtle difference.

Microblading Fashions Finest result

So yes, I am defiantly loving my new eyebrows!!

The Final Look Microblading result

The nice part is, that it is a low maintenance treatment, as after healing you can treat them just as your normal brows and no special care is needed other than staying out of the sun as this will fade the brows quicker. Therapist do recommend that you go back after one or two years for a touch up treatment.

What is better than a pair of denim shorts and a pair of espadrilles. With so many different styles and designs of denim shorts you can really wear a pair every day. I love the one featured from Glamorous especially the 1940’s fringe detail, giving it a touch of vintage glam, pair it with a bodysuit, black espadrilles and your purple color popping Adidas Original sunglasses for a sexy street glam look.

Espadrilles and a mini dress, a girly combo, playful and flirty. I picked the white laser cut-out, off the shoulder dress because the white will show off your glowing tan and the wedge espadrille will give you the extra height, showing off your legs. The color framed sunglasses from the Color Pop Adidas Original collection will just make it all pop.
