Reader and blogger Em is guest-blogging today on DREAMCATCHER to tell us about a fab new project she has come across...

Em says:
Recently, I found out about a campaign that blogger laurawbu started. I think it is a really good idea, and wanted to get involved. It's about helping people become more body confident and have more self esteem. 

Part of the campaign is to say something positive about yourself - I picked my curly hair because even though it doesn't always look its best, I love it and feel quite happy to say it's natural when asked if I have to curl it! Many people compare themselves to others, perhaps compliment them. We may think, 'their eyes are really nice', but follow it up with the thought, 'Better than mine'. Instead, give yourself a compliment... 'But I really like my legs,' or whatever it is you like about yourself. Putting yourself down won't help anything. To feel confident and love yourself, you must realise how beautiful you are inside and out.

This world needs more people in it who believe in themselves and are confident enough to love themselves and live life to the max. Never wish you were somebody else. Be happy with YOU! The message I am trying to convey here is that it's OK to love yourself for who you are. There is no need to copy what everyone else is doing if you don't like it. Wear the clothes YOU want to wear, laugh at the jokes YOU want to laugh at, be friends with the people YOU want to be friends with. Basically, just be yourself - and love it!

You can find out more about laurawbu's inspiring campaign here - get involved, blog about it, spread the word and join in! 

Check out Em's fab blog too, which covers fashion, lifestyle and baking... it's v cool!

Thanks Em for telling us about this great campaign. Hmm... I'd probably say 'I love my eyes,' I think, or maybe my mind for its daydreaming abilities! What would YOU choose? COMMENT BELOW to have your say!


  1. Doesn't everyone think this at some point, that they are sure to try it and then go straight back into ignoring themselves.I felt like that once but once my life had changed,I had choice and this is why I now feeling comfortable to tell.

  2. Wow I like my really long golden blonde hair, it goes just past my waist, when it's down!

  3. Thank you so much for using this as a guest post. Xxx

  4. Love this xxx I really like my blonde brown hair
