The other day I saw a friend in the gym who said to me “damn, your skin is glowing”, I looked at her sort of confused, then said, “ah, well, see – I was out during the day so I’m wearing makeup. Yeah, I’d never usually wear makeup to the gym.” She laughed, and told me just to accept the compliment and keep it stepping.
The next day, I was chatting to Marianne my photographer, and we both shared our take on how we view our successes. For me, it was always that I never felt (or feel) like what I’ve done is enough. For any little thing that goes well, more often than not, there is a list of a million other things I’m telling myself I should do more and do better.
I was asked recently at a bloggers’ event what my top tip would be when it comes to getting dressed up for a party. We were all asked to think up some ideas such that we can share it on the company’s Instagram story and although I played the card for a while that I had no idea what tip I could share, there was one tip that popped into my head straight away – and that was “don’t be afraid to accentuate your assets”. I wasn’t quite sure if it was as something I wanted to share as I didn’t want it to be perceived in the wrong way, but eventually when I was put on the spot, I shared my little tip, as it was something that had already been sitting on my mind for quite a while.
