I don’t think that it is too bold a statement to say that we all have insecurities about ourselves. It isn’t uncommon to have something that we’d like to change or improve upon, and it is complete natural. I think that it is also true that we look to others as sources of inspiration and admire qualities in people we that we sometimes wish we could adopt and apply to our own lives and personalities. 

It’s a difficult subject to talk about and I think that some find it harder than others. I know that I struggle to deal with my insecurities about myself, both in terms of my personality and the way that I look. 

When I sat down to write this post I wanted it to be about confidence and self-love. But the reality is that my self-confidence is pretty low at the moment. I feel as though self-doubt can be one of the hardest mindsets to overcome.

I tend to think of my self as quite a logical person, however, I am also extremely emotional. This can be difficult at times to balance, and I find that I am often faced with conflicting thoughts about how I feel about myself from these two different ways of thinking. 

Self-confidence isn’t something that can be given to you. And one thing that I have learnt is that there is no quick fix. It is something that you have to learn and accept and it can take a really long time. I do feel as though there are little things that can be done in order to help move things along however. 

For me, I know that I feel confident when I’m wearing nice clothes that flatter my body shape. I also know that I feel more confident about myself when my face is looking fresh and clear. I know that these are only little things, but sometimes it can be something that is so insignificant to others, that can have the biggest impact upon us. 

I’ve had a bit of a bad spell lately in terms of breakouts on my skin, so I have been actively trying to make more of an effort to get into a good routine and keep spots at bay. I’ve also added a few new pieces to my wardrobe lately that I feel flatter my body, and make me feel a lot more confident about the way that I look. This also includes underwear and loungewear, because even if I’m at home alone, or know that no one else will see it, I still like to dress in a way that makes me feel good about myself. 

I have loved wearing this DKNY PJ set it is so comfortable and the fabric is so soft and thick. I think that these are perfect for winter and the sizing is really spot on so I feel like they fit like a dream, whilst being comfortable enough to wear in bed. I have also been wearing some beautiful lace bras by Pretty Secrets which are again so comfortable but also very flattering. I love the cuteness of the baby pink and I really feel much more confident about myself, and my body when I’m wearing it. 

I really feel as though acceptance is key when it comes to self-love and feeling confident, and whether it is a flattering item of clothing, a new skincare routine or whatever else it may be that might make you feel good about yourself, embrace it. In the words of Rupaul; If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?!
