How to Feel More Confident with Slendertone

How to Feel More Confident with Slendertone

Even the most self assured of us sometimes feels a little less than 100% confident. I always find this especially true when it matters most - before a holiday or a big event, the self-doubt starts creeping in. Is my hair on point? Skin looking at its best? And am I feeling body confident? So as we plan the last…

CHANEL MAKEUP COLLECTION ∼ Part Two

Last month, I featured "Chanel Week" here on the blog and on my YouTube channel, including a couple of Chanel Shoe videos and an introduction to my Chanel makeup collection, with a promise for the second part.

A COLOUR CONFIDENT DAY AT GOODWOOD RACES WITH DOVE

It's no secret that wearing a brighter colour gives you an innate confidence that money just can't buy. In fact, according to research by Dove, 60% of women feel more confident wearing a brighter colour, but almost 80% shy away from bright colours, saying they lack the body confidence to go bold.

CHANEL MAKEUP COLLECTION ∼ Part One

  My love affair with Chanel makeup is longstanding - and when I say longstanding, I'm talking way back, back to my University days. Most of my love for beauty has come from watching my gorgeous mother and her beauty routine, but my love for Chanel makeup actually came from my best friend at Uni. I'd never used Chanel before…

THE VIDEO: CHANEL SLINGBACK SHOES ∼ UNBOXING & REVIEW

There's something about Chanel's designs that always draw me in. While I have yet to invest in a classic Chanel tweed jacket (a girl can dream, can't she?), luckily there are some bits from Chanel that come within my budget, after some careful planning and saving up. So this week, I'm dedicating some time, effort and space here on the…
