|Challenges ahead-break open the confidence tool kit|
My tried and tested tricks include:
Lots of hair-I always put some false pieces in when I want feel especially confident.My natural hair is like thin brown mist so whether its a fony, a few clip in pieces or a quarter wig the bigger the hair, the bigger my confidence.One day I might just go out as Cousin It from the Addams Family.
|Need a confidence boost-bouffant your hair|
Bright red lipstick-The more striking the better. This is my war paint and always makes me feel sassy.
|A slick of red and I'm ready for what the world wants to throw at me|
Drag queen eyelashes. If my eye lashes are fluttering like RuPauls then I'm set to conquer the world.
I'm not alone in having little tricks to make me feel my best. I remember reading an interview with Amy Winehouse where she said "The more insecure I feel, the bigger my beehive gets," I completely relate to this. When the pressures on my quiff gets bigger, my petticoats get wider and my make up gets thicker.
As I hurtle towards my book deadline (which has my little girls half term slap bang in the middle) don't be surprised to see me tottering around Tescos with kohl slicked panda eyes, lips like a fire engine wearing a ball gown. To quote the legendary Dolly Parton "It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen."
What tricks make you feel more confident? New shoes? matching underwear or is it as simple as having a quick squirt of your favourite perfume?
