These days, many of us are always striving to achieve that level of perfection – leading us to become unsatisfied with who we are. But as we inch away from the momentary high of welcoming 2017 and ease into the year, it is important to constantly remind ourselves to embrace who we truly are. Forget being the girl of anyone else’s dream. Why not focus on being the girl of your own desire?

Whether it’s taking up a new hobby, or cutting out toxic people in your life, only you have the power to be the best version of yourself, and of course, have fun while you’re doing – and being – it.

The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger, inspired and fronted by social media star and supermodel Gigi Hadid, embodies exactly that. Its captivating scent of green pear, violet leaf, green fig, and velvety jasmine perfectly captures the individuality and confidence of every woman. The Girl is all about being true to yourself and appreciating every moment in life. It’s more than just a fragrance – it’s a personality that speaks of uniqueness and self-acceptance.

So, how can you become #TheGirl? Keep reading below for our tips, plus find out how you can win your very own The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Toilette!


Love thyself

In order for you to be happy with who you are, you need to learn to accept yourself and love you for you – flaws and all. Once you learn self-acceptance, that’s when you truly embody the essence of The Girl: someone who’s proud of her uniqueness and does not feel the need to please society. Think about it: if you don’t love yourself, how do you expect anyone else to?

Attitude is key

When you’re confident, it reflects through the way you think, the way you act, and the way you present yourself. Get rid of the negative voices in your head; don’t dwell on your failures and welcome empowerment. Take ownership of your self-confidence.


Bring on the sunshine

Believe it or not, laughter really is the best medicine. Make sure you take the effort to look at the good things in life and laugh, love, and live. It not only brightens up your day, it will also liven up someone else’s too. Bring on the good vibes, and relax your body and mind.

Surround yourself with a support system

As German philosopher Karl Marx once said: “Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.” Filtering out negativity in your life also means cutting out people who suck the positive energy out of you. Always be around people who enrich and inspire you, and who make you a better person. Once you let go of the toxic ones, we promise you’ll see a major change in your life.


Have fun – loads of fun
