Earlier this month, Modern Mummy and An Essex Wife launched the #NYNYStyleProject; a monthly list of daily prompts to help encourage women to inject a little glamour into their day-to-day lives. When I read a little bit more about it, I immediately knew that it was what I needed. 

You may remember my post at the beginning of the month, a new year a new me. Where I admitted that I had really lost interest in myself. I seem to have no spare time and of course, I am always last on the priority list. I spoke about how I wanted to make little changes at a time to enable me to do more things for myself. 

Since having the children I have totally forgotten what fashion is. Dont get me wrong, I was never a fashion expert but I did make sure I took pride and care in what I chose to wear. Nowadays its more a case of throwing on whatever is at the top of the draw! I wear jeans with EVERYTHING and that is starting to bore me! 

Anyway... The main idea behind the style project is to encourage women to feel better about themselves. Its about taking you out of your comfort zone and introducing you to trends, designers and products you may not of heard of. See, this is exactly what I need! 

My main problem of course is money (isn't it always), since having the children my money priorities have changed. My main concern is the children and then whatever is left is for other essentials. Sadly, by the time it gets to me there is not much left in the pot! However, I have been watching the #NYNYStyleProject hashtag with interest and I have already been inspired. I have seen that its not always splashing the cash that makes you look or feel good. 

So I have decided to join in, starting from February! How about you? Would you like to join in too? Its really easy, here's how....

  •  Find the day's prompt on the month's list. I have popped February's below but they are also published (over on Modern Mummy and An Essex Wife) in advance, around the 25th of the month. 
  •  Interpret the prompt as you will - and incorporate your interpretation into your daily style, health, fitness or beauty regime. It can be an item of clothing you own, a piece you've seen and are lusting after, something you've done that made you feel better about yourself.  
  •  Take a photo!  
  •  Share it on Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget to use the hashtag #NYNYStyleProject so that other people can find your pictures.
  •  Search the hashtag yourself and check out other people's photos. Like what you see? Tell the photographer! It's a nice way to get to know each other and a lovely confidence boost too.  
  •  You don't have to join in every single day! Sometimes it's just not possible - and that's okay! Dip in and out whenever you like, and if you're not able to take your own photos, look at other people's for inspiration.

I am really looking forward to joining in, and taking those first steps to reclaiming confidence in myself!
