She Sticks Up For Herself

Higgins doesn't let anyone push her around. She tells the Irish Tatler that her parents always taught her to defend herself. "When I was growing up, my parents always told me to stand up for myself no matter what. In school, I had a hard time but I still never backed down. For me, I just think it's the most important thing for women to stand up and speak your mind, don't be afraid.

Higgins is unapologetically herself, and has been on each of her TV appearances. She advises others to do the same in her Irish Tatler interview. "Everyone is their own person, be yourself. Don't try and please people, that's the best I can say about that. 


She Believes In Balance

When it comes to her diet, Higgins says that she tries to eat healthy, but also tries not to limit herself. She tells MailOnline that she believes in eating a balanced diet. "At the weekends I eat what I want, and during the week I obviously try my best to eat healthier foods," she says. "It's all about balance."


She Has A Lot Of Support

Higgins unfortunately went through a health scare in recent years, where she over exercised and obsessed over her body. She tells MailOnline that her loved ones helped and supported her through this, and it helped her recover. "It's good to have people around you that are not afraid to say these things to you. It's so important. I'm feeling so much better."


She Gets Her Confidence From Glamour

One of the secrets to Higgins' confidence? Her glamorous fashion and makeup. She tells Grazia Daily, "We all just feel amazing when we're glam. Even a bit of lipstick makes you feel a thousand times better. For me lipstick boosts my mood and it doesn't even necessarily have to be a bright colour, even a nude shade. I very rarely wear a bright lipstick or a classic red. A nude lipstick ups my confidence."
