I Want to be Selfish and Have Something All About Me
Oct 4, 2018 | By: Laurie Brown
is a company director, wife, mother and 110% woman who believes that a smile
makes someone beautiful.
She has a history of modelling in her teens and twenties, but with age she has lost her confidence. She works in a high-pressure environment with long hours, so can often be found with a top bun, comfy jeans and her favourite “More Issues Than Vogue” t-shirt. There’s not a lot of time for “glamour” in her life, but there are lots and lots of laughs. Claire has an ability to turn a bad situation into a moment of laughter with her quick wit and sharp sense of humour. You cannot help but smile around Claire – she loves to make people smile.
Her love comes unconditionally, and she has been through some tough times lately to support those around her who need it most. It has meant that half of her forties has been focused on everyone else but her.
mom died of cancer and her dad spent 6 months in the hospital not once, but twice.
That’s why she signed up for 30 Days of Gorgeous with me.
“I want to be selfish and have something all about me. For a moment in time be a beautiful sexy woman. Not a wife, mom etc. just Claire. Raw and uncut. Big soft curls...smoldering eyes...bring sexy back. Lately bringing sexy back means my hair isn’t in a bun and I’m not wearing Uggs.”
Claire could not stop looking at herself. She has not seen this gorgeous side of herself in such a long time. This is a woman who said she doesn’t know how to take a compliment. She finds it “awkward and embarrassing”.
No longer, Claire! When people gush over your beautiful images, just say “Thank you”! You are gorgeous and you deserve to hear it!
She was petrified that it would go horribly wrong.
