Welcome to our very first issue of Shine Club. Every two months, we’ll be introducing a new celebrity cover star and a new issue theme with ah-mazing content created just for you.
Our first theme - #YouOnlyBetter - promises content pieces across fashion and beauty, food and decor, career, wellness and entertainment. We’ve worked really hard to create content that’s just like you - brave, beautiful, relevant and real - curated to help you shine in all areas of life, no matter the obstacles.
On our inaugural cover is Lelo Boyana, a travel and lifestyle podcaster affectionately known by her fans as Ms Lelo B. In our exclusive cover feature, Lelo shares her ten tips for building confidence and being your best self - *spoiler alert* - it’s not as difficult as you might think!
'Focus on what you’re good at and adopt a positive mindset. When you feel imposter syndrome setting in, recognise it and challenge those feelings,' says Lelo.
I read something that resonated with this. A social-studies professor wrote that the secret to true confidence is to ‘get out of this feeling that you have to be perfect’. If we’re constantly fixated on an illusion, an idea of what’s perfect, we’ll never truly accept our own worth. Always remember; you are enough, you are valid, and we at Shine Club are here for you, girl!
