Last Tuesday I took a trip down to London to join Avon and Lorraine Kelly to discuss women’s confidence at The Covent Garden Hotel – which is a gorgeous boutique hotel down a quaint street in Covent Garden. At the round table in a beautiful room was a table of ten women (myself included) and one man (to mix things up!). Some were journalists, others were Avon representatives, a blogger (me) and the lovely Lorraine Kelly. Lorraine lit up the room with her welcoming smile and conversed with us all about the confidence issue.
We were given a few different topics surrounding confidence to discuss which was very interesting (e.g what makes women feel confident to the effects of the media). Ultimately this round table conversation is the start of a confidence campaign for women. We decided to kick off the #UltimateYou campaign by writing compliments to another woman on a white board which we posted online (as you can see mine is to my wonderful mother!). By doing this we are encouraging confidence by praising one another, putting people up instead of down. Lorraine mentioned that us women should be part of a sisterhood instead of being rivals which I fully agree with.
After our inspiring and empowering chat we then headed to another room for afternoon tea (which looked mouth watering I had to have a cheeky scone – totally would’ve had more if I felt more confident …oh the irony!) where we looked at Avon’s amazing Anew skincare range which Lorraine is the new face of. The night cream really stood out to me as when I tested it on my very dry hands they automatically became so smooth I can only imagine its amazing on the face and neck.
Be beautiful on the inside as well as out, be confident, be the #UltimateYou.
Here are the interesting research statistics Avon found which we discussed:
