Confidence is not something we are all blessed with from birth - it takes practice and time to really feel comfortable in your own skin. That being said I am not expert in this department but these 5 things are without a doubt something I lean on when I need an extra pep in my step on days when your hair just look like crap and there's defiantly something stuck in your teeth... BUT real confidence comes from you feeling good about yourself not what others see on the outside. So here are my 5 ways to instantly boost your confidence:
1. Wear something YOU know you look good in
Nothing is worse than trying out a new trend and leaving the house a little unsure of what the heck you are wearing (leather crop top in the summer for example... trendy? yes uncomfortable as hell? YES). We all have those items in our closet that are our go-tos and if they make you feel your best then who cares if you are an outfit repeater!
2. Listen to music that makes you happy
This tip is one that I am religious about in the mornings and in situations where I need a little extra boost. I know I am not the only one who hears a song they relate to and instantly its like your hips can't stop and you just want to belt it out! In the morning I always put on uplifting music to get my day started. Ever walking somewhere alone? (even to class) - throw in some headphones. It is like giving your life it's own soundtrack and its really fun (just don't forget not everyone is hearing the same thing because when you accidently start singling along you may get some funny looks).
3. Find a Killer Fragrance
There are very few things in the world that are worse than getting somewhere and realizing that smell is coming from you. Smelling good always makes me feel more confident - its almost like "yeah I am a grown up and wear perfume - I've got my shit together". Recently Pinrose sent me some samples and let me pick out my new favorite scent - Wild Child ("perfect for the fearless, fun and beauty curious"). They recently launched at the Sephora near me and I can't get enough. You can buy it on Sephora's website here.
