Pretty powerful

In 2013, Bobbi Brown  launched the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women & Girls, a global initiative dedicated to funding nonprofit organisations that strive to empower women and girls through education.

I love that she celebrates beauty in all its weird and wonderful ways. Age, race, style know no bounds. How can you help other women and girls in your local area to celebrate and connect to this idea of a pretty powerful campaign? I have been thinking a lot about these ideas.

You are pretty and powerful. Don’t you forget it.

Mind Craft

Beautiful minds inspire others. It is not physical beauty alone that captures us. But a mind that is creative, reflective, humble, kind and generous. A beautiful mind does not evolve by accident. One needs to nurture and nourish a mind that can serve, love, accept and inspire others.  What I think about, what I read and view in public and private all serves to shape my mind’s ‘beauty’. There is a craft to dwelling on things that are noble, true and pure. I need to surround myself with people who inspire me. I need to say no to those ideas, dreams and fantasies that allow anger and discontentment to rise. I need to curate my input – texts, media and real life experiences. It is hard to have a beautiful mind. How beautiful is your mind today?
