#CTConfidence 2016 Campaign

What's your No.1 Confidence Challenge?

I decided to make the #CTConfidence campaign slightly different for 2016. At first I intended to create another video featuring all 10 women who volunteered to take up the challenge.

The theme of this challenge is “What’s your No.1 Confidence Challenge?”

I want to know what the biggest obstacle is that’s standing in the way of women being able to embody their most confident versions of themselves.

As the filming process began, I was struck by the depth of vulnerability the girls embraced and it became clear that each one of them deserved a video of their own to share their stories. As a result from 1-10 December 2016 each video will be (or was, depending on when you read this!) published each day.

I want to hear from you too! What is YOUR No.1 Confidence Challenge? Please complete this survey and share it with your girlfriends, mom, daughters, nieces, cousins – share it with any woman you know who has something standing in the way of her realising her most confident self!

#CTConfidence 2015 Campaign

The Reverse Before & After

In 2015 I invited 10 Cape Town based Beauty Bloggers to participate in my #CTConfidence campaign – I challenged them to a reverse before and after photo shoot with yours truly.

Their Before photos were the ones with all the makeup, hair done and beautiful outfits.

Their After photos, and the big reveal, saw them without makeup, hair undone and wearing their comfiest sweat pants.

The experience was enlightening and interesting to see how the girls responded to the process. Some were reserved and clearly a little uncomfortable with the notion of being photographed without makeup, but determined to accept the challenge. Others fully embraced it and actually enjoyed the After shoot more than the Before!
