My Own Kind Of ‘Summer Ready’: How I Boost My Confidence

There are few phrases that stick in my craw as much as ‘summer ready’. It is often used to imply the panic and pressure women feel to lose half their body weight, remove every strand of hair below the neck, and have perfect, glowing skin so they can follow the ubiquitous ‘just throw on some BB cream’ make up tutorials. Let’s all eye-roll together.

This year I’m rejecting all that nonsense. I have put together my picks of products that help me to just feel that little bit more confident… with no rice cakes in sight.

FRIDAY FAVES: Peaches, Peonies & Perfume

This week has been such a rollercoaster of emotions: I was on TV which was so flipping surreal. My nerves beforehand were terrible, I cried so much when I was watching it, and had such a lovely outpouring of support and love from people which I am still buzzing from! Hooray for good weeks! And now it’s a long weekend (…not that that makes much difference to me as a freelancer but !) Are you ready for my Friday Faves?
