We are ALL about supporting each other and know sometimes it can be hard to take time for yourself especially from social, but you’ve gotta take time for yourself gals!

Self care comes first, always!

We caught up with Benisha and Shiela, two of our newest PD Baes to see how these two dolls deal with keeping positive when it comes to social and taking time out.

We LOVE how sassy your outfits are, did you find it hard finding your personal style or did it just come naturally? 

I didn’t find it hard I’ve always really loved things that were different and really stood out! Even if I put something simple together I always need to add something to make it pop! 

Your peach hair is beaut! For anyone thinking about a hair refresh ATM would you have any advice, maybe for them to just go for it etc.

I think life is to short to have boring hair! Haha I love a change I say for anyone out there to definitely give crazy fun hair color a chance at least once in your life!

We all have those days when we feel abit ‘meh’, any go-to’s for you? Maybe a hot choc, a cosy blanket, bath with loadssss of bubbles etc. 

Anyime I’m feeling a bit meh what soothes me the most is a hot bath a HUGE glass of wine 🙂 

Last but not least, we are ALL for girls supporting girls, any fave bloggers you love who our PDBaes should check out?

So many women inspire me on social! It would be hard to list them all I’d say who I get most my inspiration from is Carrie from Carrie Diaries and even grown up Carrie of course from sex and the city!


Do you have any advice to anyone wanting to become an influencer and how to combat with any negativity?

To become a Instagram influencer the first thing you need to do is find a niche that your passionate about. Grab a pen and write them down. Create good quality content and connect with your followers. Give them a reason to trust you, follow you and engage with you. Most importantly always be yourself .

Don’t let the trolls ruin your day. Ignore their hateful comments and refuse to engage with their negativity. Trolls feed on attention. Focus on the positives and let the negativity fade in the backround.

What would be your go-to confidence boost on a bad day?

I love to have a day of self care and self love. Enjoying a relaxing bath , get a nice facial and surround myself with positive people.

Who is your inspiration and why?

My mum is my inspiration because she taught me the most important thing I follow every day. She taught me to be strong and to be true to myself and be the best version of myself. Because of my her I fell inlove with fashion, she allowed me to express myself from a young age with clothes and accessories.

Your motto is life is…

Think positive and positive things will happen.
