Enhance Your Confidence In 3 Easy Steps

In the twenty first century, with social media being the number one means of communication.
For millennial's it can be challenging to maintain a positive body image.
Your self confidence can be sapped if you are forever scrolling through your Instagram feed only to see
seemingly perfect selfies of people showing off their heavily filtered lives.
We all know that an X-Pro filter goes a long way to make everything look achingly cool,
but it can still be soul destroying when you feel like you don’t match up.
Social media is a huge factor as to why people grow up with poor self esteem nowadays.
It’s time to think about how you can enhance your confidence in three simple steps.


If you have been in the same routine for the past few years, it’s time for a change.
It can be difficult to move jobs or move house, so think of an easier change to make.
Even if you can’t take a sabbatical, you can use your vacation to go somewhere new rather
than the usual Spanish resort.
If you think you may struggle to fund your trip, consider heading to Buddy Loans to consolidate
your debt and pay off any credit cards you may have.
This way, you can have more money in your pocket for a vacation.

Think about heading on a trek to see the Inca Trail, venturing to Japan or heading for a city break in Europe.
Spend some time exploring new areas and enjoy some time away from the stresses of modern life.
Forget about your overbearing boss at work and enjoy experiencing new vistas and meeting new people.
Travelling can be one of the most life-affirming experiences so enjoy it while you can.

Social Media Detox

It’s time to banish the social media for a little while.
Even though you may rely on Facebook for catching up with friends,
you need to revert to more traditional modes of communication.

This will help shield your eyes from the confidence-sapping content.
You don’t have to be forced into viewing perfect holidays, meals and lifestyles.
Instead, enjoy working on your own environment and immediate surroundings.
Enjoy reading a book, cooking a meal, watching a movie and listening to music.

You don’t need social media.
To develop a healthier relationship with Instagram, it’s time to give it a miss for a little while.

Get Active

While you may never be a gym bunny, you can stay active. Think about heading outdoors when the sun is shining, going for a walk and heading to the park. Natural light will lift your mood, endorphins will be released and you can soak up some much needed Vitamin D. Being outside and active can naturally enhance your confidence and make you feel a little more like yourself.

The Trendy Accessories You Need This Summer

Summer always brings a range of great fashion trends that can add a bit of spice to your life. You no longer need to wrap up in your winter clothes; it's time to wear things that make you look good and feel confident. I'm not going to look at outfit ideas - it's all about accessories today! Here are a few little bits and pieces that you can add to your summer wardrobe this year:  

Purple is the colour this season, so purple trainers are definitely a big hit. You need a pair of these to accompany your summer outfits as they're very diverse and can be worn with lots of different styles. Plus, the colour is just so beautiful and really blends in with the summer style. You don't have to splash the cash, pretty much all the fashion brands have their own lilac/purple trainers out now! 


You can always count on some type of handbag trend as the season's change. For summer 2019, everyone is ditching the functional handbags in favour of some not-so-practical tiny ones. These bags look like mini versions of ordinary handbags - almost like little purses. They're mainly just for show, and they can be a great little addition to your outfit. But, there's enough room for your phone, keys, and money; so that's good! 


 Bright Bracelets Bracelets are always a must have in summer, seeing as you can actually wear clothes that will show them off! This year, it's all about creating a statement with bold bracelets. Companies like Opals Australia make bracelets with large and vibrant opals that help give off that summer vibe. But, you can opt for any bracelets that are studded with gemstones or jewels; it's up to you. The idea is that you wear something that gives off some bright colours to match with the summer vibe. Ideally, try and find ones that reflect the light to really give that shiny appearance.
While we're talking about jewellery, there's another hot trend in this years summer fashion faves. Pearls are right back in fashion, and they're making a pretty big comeback. For years, they've been seen as outdated - something your granny used to wear back in the olden days. Now, some gorgeous pearl jewellery ideas let you accessorise your summer outfits with ease. Seeing as we've already mentioned bracelets, it's probably a good idea to opt for a pearl necklace or some statement earrings. 

Either way, you'll be extremely fashionable this summer. Remember, the number one rule of fashion is that you need to accessorise! An outfit isn't complete unless you have a few little things to go with it. The secret to great accessories is that they don't take too much away from the outfit itself. They should add to it, complement the main pieces, and make you shine. If you're looking for some summer inspiration, then the accessories above will be perfect for the sunny months or most likely, the sunny weeks!

Improving Your Smile For A Confident New You

Are you the type of person who hates to smile in photos? Many people dislike their smile, but there are things you can do to help you fall in love with it. There are plenty of ways to enhance your smile according to your budget and comfort for a smile that will have you grinning in no time. Look at some of the following ways of improving your smile for a confident new you.

Work on your oral hygiene

The first step to a better smile is making sure you look after your teeth properly. Brushing your teeth twice a day isn’t enough, and there’s a lot more you can do now to improve your oral health. Some useful tips for healthy teeth include flossing and using a good mouthwash. You should limit the amount of sugary foods and drink you eat too - these can destroy teeth more than you know.

Try teeth whitening

Teeth whitening can be a fast and simple route to improving your smile. The good news is that there are a lot of different teeth whitening treatments available that can help you get that brighter, whiter smile. There are budget teeth whitening treatments you can do at home that can deliver some excellent results, or you can consider going to the dentist for a more professional whitening treatment. Always read the label carefully before using whitening products, and only buy from trusted sources.

Get help from a dentist

The best person to get advice from about enhancing your smile is your dentist. They can advise on the best treatments to improve your teeth, as well as advise on longer-term treatments to help boost your smile. A visit to an orthodontist could help you decide whether braces, veneers or an invisible straightening solution is more appropriate for you. Dental treatments can cost a lot of money, but it can be a price worth paying for long-lasting confidence.

Create the perfect pout

Your smile isn’t all about your teeth, your lips can play a big part in building confidence in your smile. It’s possible to create a luscious, full-looking pout using makeup, with some excellent plumping products. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner are known for overlining their lips to create the illusion of a fuller lip, which can boost your confidence that will show in your smile. Keep lips hydrated with the right moisturising products and drink plenty of water throughout the day to stop them from getting cracked.

There are lots of ways to enhance your smile and enjoy more confidence. Sometimes it’s those little boosts that can make the biggest difference and help you feel great from the inside out. Why not look at false lashes as another way to feel more confident when you need it most? Whatever you do, remember to be true to yourself - it’s the beauty within that will shine through after all.
