Discovering What Makes You Feel Confident And Talking About My Winning Formula With Pearl Drops

What I’m wearing: Dress: French Connection | Necklace: Diamonfire | Bag: Wallis | Shoes: Daniel Footwear

Girls, what makes you feel confident?
Setting yourself a goal? Buying some sexy lingerie? Hitting the gym? Smiling? Having a heart to heart with a friend?
Us girls are so similar, yet different in so many way – we all love to feel confident within ourselves (it shines from us when we’re feeling good – you can just tell, girl code and all that!), but how we feel confident varies from person to person. We all have that ‘thing’ that we can do and it instantly makes us feel confident, whether it’s wearing your favourite underwear, whitening your teeth to perfect that dazzling smile or slipping on your favourite LBD.
For me, my winning formula is wearing heels; I can be having a crappy day or just not feeling my outfit/makeup/hair for a night out then I’ll pop on some heels and BAM, I’m feeling sassy as hell and there aint no stopping me (or is this just me?!). We all have that way of making ourselves feeling more confident, and for me, heels make me feel taller and sexier – I do have far too many pairs which I should probably cut down at some point. I think girls in heels just screams I’m a #GIRLBOSS and guys will either be so attracted to that or intimidated as you’re a strong woman, either way we’re wearing them for ourselves and no-one else *inserts sassy hand emoji.
So, that being said, last week I took to the streets of London wearing some new heels and frolicked about for some pictures (taken by my babe Megs) – we didn’t stop laughing the whole time and I felt so confident and happy I think the pictures show that! Although it was bloody freezing and we did get some bizarre looks from passers by as I was strutting about in a dress with bare legs (soz bout it!).
Shooting with Megs was so much fun and I couldn’t stop smiling, part of the brand mission at Pearl Drops is that ‘Smile is a thing of beauty. It’s so powerful it can capture hearts, boost your confidence and express your happiness in the most mesmerising way.’ – I couldn’t agree with this statement anymore, I’m a fairly laid back, happy-go-lucky kinda girl and one of my favourite things is to see people happy and smiling, it’s that infectious thing of seeing people smile and you just can’t help but smile too.
Pearl Drops are committed to beautiful smiles and ensuring your smile is always looking at it’s best, whatever the occasion. I’ve started using their Pearl Drops Pure White 3 step treatment as a natural enhancer to help whiten my teeth, this set offers a solution that gently and effectively whitens teeth (and on a budget too as their products are super affordable!). 
When Pearl Drops challenged me to reveal my winning formula for confidence I was excited to get involved and share with you ladies what makes me feel good about myself; but the real question is, what makes YOU feel confident? I’m dying to know so please share your comments below or tweet me using the hashtag #FlawlessWhite so the Pearl Drops  team can see your top tips too!
What is your winning formula for feeling confident? I’d love to know!

    Love this post girl!
    It's so true about confidence shining from within, just gives you that extra something that you can't put your finger on!
    For me I think heels are always a winner, so is good underwear and a nice bold red lipstick! Since working in my new job, I don't get to wear a bold lip and I don't feel like myself, but as soon as I can go out on a day off and I pop it on, I feel like a whole different person and definitely more confident!
    Also I think I'll try those pearl drops as having whiter teeth would 100% make me smile more!!

      Thanks lady, I completely agree – a red lip is always a winner for me too! Definitely, it's so nice to feel like yourself again and get glam! 🙂 x

    Ahhh you look so gorgeous and those heels are beaut. I definitely think confidence shows when you are smiling, as when you feel happy you feel like you can take on anything!! If my make-up is on form then I feel much more confident, it sounds silly, but the little things make such a difference. My Grandad actually always said you can tell a lot about a person by their smile and their shoes – clean shoes and clean, white smile tells you whether they look after themselves and apparently this in his eyes automatically makes you a good person haha!!

      Thanks girl <3 Ah that's so lovely, I fully agree though that a good smile definitely radiates confidence! xx

    LOVE this!! You look so beautiful too 🙂
    I have a lot of trouble having confidence in myself but I definitely agree, wearing a sassy pair of heels changes my mood in an instant too!
    I think also discovering an outfit that you're super happy and comfortable in will totally shine out of you if you're feeling amazing in it!!

    • Hayley Rubery 14th December 2015 / 8:51 am

      Ahh thank you lovely 🙂 I completely agree, sometimes it's hard to feel good but it's nice to though there are little things you can do that instantly make you feel better! x

    Loved this post lady face! You look beautiful 🙂 heels are always a good confidence boost aren't they? For me it's always a good lashing of lippy – always makes me feel better if I'm lacking in confidence or feeling a bit rubbish! xxx

    • Hayley Rubery 14th December 2015 / 8:53 am

      Aww thanks beaut! Yes definitely, I love a dark or red lip! Even if I'm feeling a bit crappy it makes me feel sassy straight away! xx

    Wearing some sexy lingerie always makes me feel more confident but I think smiling is the best way to feel confident! You look gorgeous here. I can see why you love wearing heels as your legs are stunning x

    • Hayley Rubery 14th December 2015 / 8:52 am

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment lady! Completely agree about lingerie though, always makes you instantly feel good, even if it's just for yourself you feel good! x

    Looking beautiful Rubes! Like you, heels and a smile definitely makes my feel confident. Weirdly enough, I find that nice nails is a massive confidence booster and I also like wearing a bold lip just like what you have done in these pictures. xx


    • Hayley Rubery 14th December 2015 / 8:53 am

      Thanks Jules! <3 I have to agree, I love having my nails done – it's so nice as a lot of people compliment me on them too so it makes me feel good! x
