You asked me who my glamour inspirations are and as I’m about to create my own badass gang of inspiration for 2014 – this superstar goddess came to my mind.
Delving into her diary…I found her secret words to charge up her confidence…and I don’t think she’d mind a bit if I dished them to you…

I found her in a record store.
She was on the cover of the Smiths 7″ vinyl of “Sheila Take A Bow”.
I had to find out who she was.
Miss Candy Darling.

She had passed away before I was born.
But I held onto her.
I taped pictures of her that I found on my wall
beside Marilyn
beside Sid Vicious…
She was my favorite of them all.

You must always be yourself no matter what the price.

and her words

Will you reach deep down this year
and crave your own wild self?

with the beautiful chaos of
a free

Howl with me.
Show me who you really are.
I can take it.

Let’s create whatever we want together.

Candy’s ghost shall help guide us
and the words that she left behind in her diary.
And the words she wrote and said to herself
to boost her own confidence
shall fall upon
our own lips:

I am an irresistible magnet.
With the power to attract onto myself
everything that I divinely desire
According to my thoughts, feelings
and the mental pictures that I constantly entertain
and radiate.

What happens when you say these words twice a day for 30 days?
Let’s find out.
