From the title of this website you will see that it's about all things that help build confidence and self esteem. This takes in the LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD factor - because how we look does have a big effect on the way we feel.
But feeling good about yourself has absolutely nothing to do with looking like a fashion model. It just means
valuing yourself for who and what you are so that you can focus on the
positives and believe in yourself.
course there are times when we need to follow the conventional route for a
particular occasion but, on the whole, it's important to be yourself. Each of us will
have something particular that makes us feel good. Perhaps it's having a successful day at work, feeling the energy rush after exercise, it might be a particular outfit that empowers you or even just having your hair cut.
But whatever it is that promotes confidence, it's very strongly tied up with Body Confidence! Take a look below!

What is Body Confidence
Body confidence is difficult to define!

Change by all means, but be aware of the difference it makes.
I actually analyzed Kathleen as Spring 7 years ago but she was beginning to feel quite overwhelmed by the warm bright shades. Perhaps I was wrong, perhaps her photos weren't particularly good, perhaps her coloring has changed dramatically; whichever, we now have a distinct change of direction!
Kathleen's hair was quite naturally golden when I first analyzed her colors and, at the time, the Spring palette was perfect. But as the years went on her hair leaned more towards a silvery white and her complexion softened considerably. Back to the drawing board, there is no doubt that the soft Cool shades of Summer are far more flattering to her current natural coloring.
I frequently say that as we grow older and hair and skin tones soften there is no need to adjust your color direction as long as you are happy. I stand by that, the majority of women will find that their existing color family will continue to work perfectly - although some may feel more comfortable with the softer end of the palette.
As Spring is a mix of Light Warm and Bright, any softening in natural coloring will usually mean that Light or Warm will take the lead. It's quite unusual to find that the skin tone has determinedly changed from warm to cool. The warm tones are heavy and make her complexion look quite yellow while the delicate Summer palette allows her beautiful coloring to shine.
