Confidence Boosting Shoe Wishlist

**Update 2016 – So, for some strange reason, this post has become rather popular on Pinterest – loads of people apparently like my taste in shoes. And so, because all the old links were outdated, I decided to re-work this post into a shoe shopping wishlist! So, without further ado . . . shoes!

It’s not a weird combination.

I’m a big believer in confidence being the main key to looking good; and confidence comes from many things. (Weirdly enough, strawberries make me feel confident. Until I realise that half the strawberry is all over my face because I’m basically a child and eating never goes quite as smoothly as it should. Seriously. It’s kind of a skill of mine.) However, when it comes to my clothes I generally find confidence in the form of three things: shoes, lingerie and accessories.

The idea that sparked this post is actually one that I’m continuing to my next post – and that’s confidence. One thing you’ve probably already noticed about me is that I draw entirely irrelevant and strange inspiration from things (it’s actually a post idea in my blog book: The Weird Ways I Draw Inspiration in which I would just write about a general day and all the odd ideas I get from things that happen throughout – another post idea is to show y’all my notebooks which includes the blog book) and today I received some more holiday clothes in the post – which I will show you in a big haul post when it all arrives.

Anyway, I tried this jumpsuit on and loved it – but one of the things that I loved most about it was the fact that I loved the way that it looked when I know that a few months ago I would’ve hated it. And all that had changed was the fact I was confident enough to like it. Only partially because I was wearing a pair of heels too.

So I decided to do a “Confidence Booster” Wishlist based on things that make me feel confident. Leggo.

Well, that’s enough from me  yeah. We know.  Shut up.  so how about you guys; what makes you feel confident on days when you just kind of wish you never left your bed?

I totally agree with the confidence booster list. Sometimes all you need is that thing that gives you the little spark to keep you going through the day. For me that would probably be my MAC dark red lipstick. It may sound crazy but I actually notice a bounce in my steps when I wear it. Amazing post.

Exactly! I can start my day feeling terrible, but that little something will just make me feel ten times better! And I actually get that because just Vaseline makes me feel so much better and . . . it’s just Vaseline! Thank you for commenting 🙂

i lost touch of you for a while there, its nice to find your blog again 🙂

Well this pretty much sums up why I feel good (shock horror, but it does happen, infrequently, but still happens). This is what also makes me confident (still in sisterhood with this post probably but hey ho):

– if my bra & knickers are matching (and if they have something like flying pigs on them or cats or pandas or whatever, just yes)
– knowing I smell nice
– if eyeliner miraculously becomes what we know only too well as ‘on fleek’
– walking through the streets with a starbucks in my hand
– when a selfie is edited literally to perfection and everything looks good and you post it and you basically are just bathing in confidence.

Too long a comment? Probably. I’ll stop now 😀

OMG yes matching underwear and victoria’s secret body spray is actually the key 🙂

Finally someone 😉

A good pair of shoes always makes me confident!

definitely! heels especially 🙂

[…] I’ve been loving my little lace crop top underneath other tops (as I told y’all here) and tying laces around my jeans as my waist is too small for belts. I’m not even joking. I […]

[…] Look, we all know I love lace (especially when I make wishlists pretty much dedicated to it, like this one) and lingerie (let’s be honest, I can’t even link all the lingerie loving posts) and a […]
