My Top Ten Secret Ways To Feeling Great

As a Mom of five I know it’s sometimes easy to fall into the rut of putting everyone first.

What I’ve gradually learnt though, is that if I want to feel good about myself then I have to put myself first once in a while. When you look good you feel good and this can only have a positive effect upon the whole family.

If this sounds like it could be you then please read on…


Nothing feels better than a good bubble soak, take the time to exfoliate and then moisturise your whole body from top to toe. Get smooth all over with an epilator – it’s a great idea to removing unwanted hairs and it lasts longer than if you shave.

Hands & Feet

If you have time, great,  go all out with a full home manicure but if you are cut for time then keep it simple with a nude shade such as Eyeko or get a quick an easy false set by Elegant Touch.


I wouldn’t be without my straighteners but this is personal choice, curly or straight Very has a great range of personal appliances.

Make up

I rarely have time for the full on effect and heavy foundation can look aging. I prefer a few handbag essentials. After moisturising the items  I use are YSL Touche Eclat, instant brightener if you haven’t slept, an illuminating light foundation, mascara , blush and a light nude shade lipstick and for an easy to touch up look throughout the day.


So many women wear the same scent for years, there is nothing wrong with a signature scent, but it’s great to experiment!. I love to match my perfumes to my outfit and the season. It’s amazing how a new scent can really lift our mood, treat yourself to a new  perfume and tell me if I’m wrong!


No one feels sexy in old frayed undergarments. Even if I’m in my jeans and t-shirt I still wear a matching set. I feel like a woman when I have something pretty on underneath and it’s a real confidence booster I can tell you! I love the  By Caprice range!


Sometimes you don’t need a new outfit, go through your wardrobe and see what you find. A favourite Jacket perhaps? Then buy a scarf and bag to instantly add new life.


A new piece of fashion jewellery perhaps? Very has just launched a fab range of Disney Couture jewellery – not to be missed.


So much to choose from, where do we start?! It doesn’t have to be heels, a cute pair of pumps with extra detail can add all the difference and with Very’s huge range of women’s footwear you are spoilt for choice.

Women’s Clothing.

My top tip is to invest in the one item that you have fallen in love with, being practical sometimes doesn’t work. Yes that top may cost as much as a pair of jeans AND a pair of shoes put together but if you love it – then why not go for it! You will feel a million dollars and ultimately isn’t that what we are all trying to achieve?
