Confidence Boost with Boots | AD


I think it would be fair to say that we're living in really strange times at the moment and like nothing any of us have ever experienced before. Life has been very different and everything has taken some getting used to. I'll be honest and say i've had many ups and downs over the past few months. I'm sure many of you can relate! Mixed moments of contentment followed by tears and then laughter. Personally I feel the uncertainty has left me feeling somewhat deflated and, after living like a hermit for months, my confidence levels haven't been great. 

I've always been an advocate for self care and doing the things in life that bring me the most happiness and this has been even more important to me in recent times. I've really tried to tune into what simple things in life help me to feel good on both the inside and out.     

Being Active 

If ever i'm feeling the need for a little boost my first port of call is always either to go for a swim or a walk with my dogs in nature. I can almost guarantee that this always boosts my mood and confidence, particularly if i'm listening to my favourite tunes along the way! I've never really been a gym person but i've found what works for me. Exercise and staying active is so important to both my personal confidence levels and my mental health. Recently, and since spending a lot more time at home, i've also grown to enjoy home workout's more and more. 


It's very rare that I go a day without wearing makeup and it's something which always boosts my confidence levels and has me feeling my best. I've often envied people who are confident without wearing makeup but i've come to accept that everyones different and I don't need to change who I am. Makeup is an absolute must for me and it's actually something I enjoy applying and experimenting with. Of course I have days where I don't wear any but I only ever feel the best version of myself with my face made up, even if it's just a simple minimal look! 

Sun Tan 

It's amazing what a bit of sun kissed colour to my skin does for my self esteem and confidence. I often usually like to go away on holiday early in the Summer season but having not been able to do that this year I found myself feeling quite pale and pasty. This Spring & Summer i've turned to fake tan to give me that little boost i've so desperately needed and it's really helped to put back a little spring back in my step! I've particularly enjoyed using a fake tan for face product which gives my skin a beautiful sun kissed colour and just makes me feel more well in myself. As someone who is naturally quite olive skinned I certainly feel it when i'm missing my usual tan. 


I think the key to feeling confident in yourself is feeling comfortable and that's why clothes are also so important to me. If i'm not happy with what i'm wearing it can really impact on my mood and my entire day. I've tried to streamline my wardrobe so that it only contains all of the items I really love and I find that this helps me in avoiding making any bad decisions when it comes to choosing what to wear. 

Having self confidence is something I think most of us struggle with and it's certainly not easy to be confident all of the time, particularly during challenging times. That being said, I think we all know the little things that help to boost our own spirits and confidence levels.
