Shine Like A Celeb - Meet The Competition Winners!

Last month I teamed up with beauty brand 'Shine Like A Celeb' for their huge competition which was all about confidence. Participants were asked to tweet a selfie and explain what confidence means to them. Two winners were picked to win a bundle of prizes including a gorgeous jar of limited edition pink shimmer body cream, cash, jewellery and to be featured on various blog sites. Here are the two lucky winners:

What does confidence mean to you?
Confidence is extremely important. Encounter every new day with a smile on your face and your best foot forward, and you can’t stray wrong. If something knocks you down, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start afresh.
Confidence in yourself is what gains your achievements in life – your friends, your job, your partner – and your future. It’s what keeps you smiling :-)

Which celebrity inspires you and why?
Oprah Winfrey inspires me. She had a hard start in life and suffered a lot of tragedy. She worked hard to achieve her career in Communication and now hosts one of the most successful talk shows in the world. Sheer determination, confidence and her honest and likeable nature have turned her life around. She is extremely inspirational.

Who in your family gives you inspiration?
My mum is my ultimate inspiration. She cares full-time for my step sister who’s 35, who has epilepsy, severe learning difficulties and struggles to walk. My sister Heather is completely dependent, and my mum has been by her side through everything, with my dad strongly supporting them both. Even during the hardest struggles, when my sister has been at her worst, my mum has been a confident, positive rock that has taken the world on her shoulders. She has and always will be to me, the most beautiful woman on the planet. Inside and out.  

What does "shine like a celeb" mean to you?
It means letting yourself be as confident as you possibly can be – a celebrity without the celebrity status. Trying to look your best and feel your best. Letting your confidence shine through to all those around you – smile and the world will smile back at you.

What's the one message you would like to give to the readers?
To always be yourself, and be confident with who you are. As individuals we are all beautiful, and we have the power to make not just ourselves happy, but the world around us too.
Live every day as though it could be your last – and shine to all those around you.

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently doing -
I work full-time for a Building Maintenance company, so I work with a lot of tradesman! Confidence is important for this as I have to know my job inside out, and be confident enough to resource my tradesmen effectively. I have a gorgeous family – my partner and his son Lucas, who’s 5. We’ve only been together for 2 years – but I couldn’t imagine life without them! :-)

What does confidence mean to you? 
I think confidence is very important to everyone. Everyone should feel good about themselves when they go out in public. People without confidence need to build it back up and make sure that they feel good, because everyone can. 

Which celeb inspires you & why?
Beyonce, she just runs the world!! She's an inspiration to all girls and how all girls should follow.

Who in your family gives you inspiration?
My mum gives me the most inspiration in my family, she's an amazing woman! She does everything for us children. She's full of confidence and always tries her best at everything, whether people care or not, she'll do it.
What does "shine like a celeb" mean to you?
"Shine like a celeb" comes across to me as someone who shines 24/7 like a celebrity, someone who's very genuine and not too confident, a nice confident.

What's the one message you would like to give to the readers?
Always be confident, wherever you are in the world, whoever you are with, and whenever. Be confident in your own skin and shine wherever you go!!! 

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you're currently doing -
I've just finished school, I'm going onto college in September to do Health and Social L3 course. I enjoy socialising with my friends and will miss them when I'm in college, but we live close to each other so I'm not too worried. I work in a restaurant as a waitress. I enjoy waitressing, instead of being bored stuck at home, because my family are still in school/work so it's nice to get out of the house and earn some money.

What does confidence mean to you? What makes you feel confident?

  1. For me confidence is about be sure of yourself and being happy in yourself.. but there's a fine line between confidence and arrogance. There's nothing sexier or more beautiful than a woman who is confident and happy.
