Why Sheer Empowderment?

I see so many amazing, powerful and beautiful women underestimating and underappreciating themselves. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of seeing ourselves through the unattainable standards of this world. Sheer Empowderment is a platform through which I hope to change that narrative and to instead remind ourselves (yes, I’m including myself) of just how freaking amazing we all are!!!

I share the things that empower me and hope they’ll do the same for you. I focus on makeup and self-care because of countless studies that prove the insane impact thereof on self-esteem. I encourage self- and mental-health awareness because of my own journey with fibromyalgia (a chronic pain illness). And finally I throw in my academic passion of Industrial Psychology and share some amazing life-coaching principles with you.

About Me: Yolandé

Meet my crazy, little family below. My two fluffy children (crazy) and hubby (crazier, no really!). When I’m not busy planning which makeup products I should buy next, with the money that I don’t have, I am busy with my Masters degree in Industrial and Organisational Psychology. The rest of the time I’m overanalysing everything about anything, because, you know, there’s just so much time in a day for that (not! Please brain, take a damn nap). I’m really just an ordinary girl with extra-ordinary hopes and dreams – not only for myself, but also for my fellow humans from Venus (yasss girl, you!)
