These quotes will definitely lift you up!

“The most alluring thing a woman can have is confidence.” Beyoncé

Sometimes you need a reminder that even Beyoncé knows confidence is key! No matter what you’re wearing or what you’re doing you have to do it with confidence!

“Anytime someone tells me I can’t do something… I want to do it more.” Taylor Swift

Ever been told you’re stubborn? That’s not an entirely bad thing! If someone tells you that you can’t do something – prove them wrong! Taylor Swift is the queen of reinventing herself, so she knows how to prove people wrong better than anyone!

“Do not allow people to dim your shine because they’re blinded… Tell them to put on some sunglasses.” Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has seriously inspired us this week! If people are intimidated by your success just tell them to get over it. You can be who you want to be, that’s a huge part of Lady Gaga’s mindset and it’s what makes her successful!

“Ambition is not a dirty word.” Reese Witherspoon

We’re lucky that in this day and age, saying you’re focused on your career and you’re ambitious doesn’t have people scratching their heads and wondering what’s wrong with you. I mean, did you see how that entire village treated Belle in Beauty and the Beast, just because she liked to read.

“Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.” J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling’s story of success wasn’t traditional, she had enough failures in her past, and wrote Harry Potter while struggling to make ends meet, and faced a lot of rejections, too. If we can take anything from her story it’s that you just have to keep going!

“If you wouldn’t say it to a friend, don’t say it to yourself.” Jane Travis

We really need to remember this! Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. It’s a good reminder to be kind to ourselves, especially as there’s a lot of Christmas indulgence about to happen!

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” Coco Chanel

Never underestimate yourself. This quote might well be your mantra for 2017!

“Dress for yourself and make your own rules.” Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso is seriously cool. She handles everything with that witty, kick-ass attitude. She knows that you have to make your own rules to be successful!

“Be brave and fearless to know that even if you do make a wrong decision, you’re making it for a good reason.” Adele

Adele is our idol because she doesn’t take any shit. She’s constantly open about what she eats and drinks, swears like a sailor and only tours when it’s healthy for her. We love her! We’re sure she stands by her own words, if you’re sure of your motives, there’s no such thing as a bad decision.

“Mistakes are proof that you’re trying.” Cara Delevingne

Failure isn’t the end! Mistakes are just learning curves, and once you make one mistake you will never make it again – so it’s actually a really positive thing!

“Sometimes it takes years to get the results you want. But, you shouldn’t stop trying.” Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney is a serious Career Girl. She didn’t get to where she is today by giving up when things got tough, at the end of the year you need a reminder to keep going!

“Find someone who has a life that you want and figure out how they got it. Read books, pick your role models wisely. Find out what they did and do it.” Lana Del Rey

If you need to find a role model to enter the new year with, we’d suggest picking one that’s really open about how they got to where they are. You don’t have to pick someone in your industry either, you might like to think about someone you admire because of their qualities. It’s also nice to hear what other people admire in you! Ask your friends, the close ones that won’t think you’re weird for asking.

“The sexiest people are thinkers.” Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood is unashamedly true to herself and always has been. Which is great to see! She knows that sexiness and beauty come from within. If you need a polite reminder that you’re gorgeous – you just got it.
