Do Tell: What Do You Do For an Immediate Confidence Booster?

We all have those days when we feel a little down and out. It's totally normal to wake up on the wrong side of the bed every once in a while, but it's key not to let the blues get the best of you, although that's often easier said than done! When I need a quick fix, buying something new always turns my day around. I know it's not the most savvy method, but it works for me! Since we are all different, do tell ladies, what's your remedy when you need an instant confidence booster to lift your mood?

Diamonds are a girl's bestfriend. :) I put on my bling-bling jewelry, and I lounge around and admire them. Sometimes over a glass of wine.

I always put on upbeat music and I dance naked. Weird right.

I look in the mirror and say: "I'm good enough I'm smart enough and gosh darn it people like me!" Haha, anyone remember Stuart Smalley? Sorry, this post reminded me of that... Anyway, to feel more confident, I put on my most flattering and favorite outfit of the moment and go out with the girls. Then I flirt with a hot guy or two, make them wish they had me, and go home at the end of the night to my man. Or, like others have said, I can just spend time with my fiance and he always tells me I'm hot no matter how bad I think I look.

if i wake up in a sh*tty mood (which is rare), i put on my "Happy" playlist on my laptop,which consists of "Over The Hills And Far Away" by Led Zeppelin. i shower and what not, and i go into my closet and pick out something that makes me feel hot. other than that, if i'm in a bad mood, you're just gonna have to deal with me being pissed for a bit. i usually get over things kinda fast.

Watching a good romantic comedy usually does it. Or lately (since there really haven't been a lot of good romance comedies since "When Harry Met Sally") I've been watching a lot of teen dance movies, like "Step Up" and "Step Up 2 the Streets" and "Center Stage." Something about the dancing makes me happy.

When Im feeling blue I .......eat chocolate haggen daz ice cream,listen to music OR paintin my artbook. I never run from sadness I think its good to have at least one day a month(usually around my period) when u can be completely pessimistic and miserable. When these days come I really purge all of the negative emotions i've been building up.
