Confidence is not about perfection – it is about being you and taking pride in that. One should claim confidence in opinions, thoughts and interactions by living in the present. We make mistakes and we learn from them. Forgive yourself, let go and move on – that is confidence. These days, everyone tries to be like everyone else. There is some sort of unwritten social ‘code’ which governs what we should wear, whom we should befriend, how we should behave and what kind of life we should lead. Becoming part of a culture or society is an essential component of feeling accepted. However, do not lose yourself by believing that acceptance is the biggest virtue. It takes guts to harbor a passion, it takes strength to believe in it. To stick to being yourself in the tackiest situations – that’s confidence. Just be you, an Unapologetic You!
To someone, it’s the shiny polished nails. Someone else might think a well-fitted dress or a pair of high heels always does the trick. To me, volumizing my hair brings out the sexy in me. And I feel whatever makes you feel on top of the world, you should do it a little more often. It makes you confident and that’s when confidence becomes so sexy. Surely not to impress people around you, but just for yourself. I have normal wavy hair but crimping my hair gives me a different look – adds volume, texture and a Boho feel which I love. Crimping hair was very popular in the 80s and what better way than a multi-coloured mini jumpsuit, beaded necklace and Boho hair to convey retro? If you know me, you’d know that I’m quite fond of colours. To me, colours symbolize positivity, happiness and adventure. And just like that, I was ready to tell the world how much I love the above ensemble!
