As women, we have been bought into the belief that we shouldn’t celebrate how beautiful we are. But why shouldn’t we? Many of us women are not completely happy about the way we look – the grass is always greener as they say.
We are forever complaining about the size of our hips or thighs. But, we should give ourselves a break; there is no such thing as perfection. And of course, true beauty comes from within. It isn’t just your outer appearance which makes you beautiful, your intelligence, strength, courage, determination and confidence is what makes you stand out. Take time to celebrate your beautiful self with these ideas:
Photoshoot with friends
A great way to express your inner beauty is by getting a professional photoshoot done with your family. It’s a great way to celebrate your own and your families characters. Organise a photography experience with a portrait photographer at the likes of Venture studios and enjoy expressing your beauty with the people you love the most.
Go to the spa
One of the best ways to unwind, rejuvenate and pamper yourself, is of course, a trip to a spa. Go with a family member or friend and spend time relaxing in the Jacuzzi and treat yourself to a couple of treatments. The best way to appreciate how lucky you are is when you are relaxed and feeling content. Going to a spa doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are many deals out there which include using the spas facilities, afternoon tea and a couple of treatments for under £100. Take a look at the likes of Groupon or Wowcher to find a deal. Visiting a spa is a great way to celebrate your beauty both inside and out – remember, you deserve the pampering and too feel good.
Make time to read
When was the last time you read a book? Reading a book is a great way to escape the burdens of everyday life and lose yourself in a story. Take some time every day, before just before you go to bed to read a book or magazine. If you take the time to read every night, it gives you time to yourself and helps you unwind before bed.
Girls’ night out
There is little else that makes you feel great about yourself than your best girls commenting on how good you look. So get dressed up in your favourite outfit, do your make-up and hair, and go out for a night on the town with your friends. Whether that be dancing the night away or something a little more low-key like a meal, catching up and laughing with your friends is a great way to feel good about yourself.
