True Beauty Files: Spread the Love.

January 30, 2012

Throwing a little twist into the month of love…..
Last year, two ladies with big hearts made a big effort to promote genuine acts of kindness in the blogosphere. It had really cool results. This year, they have asked me to join in on the mission, and I was pretty excited to take part in such a fine task;) So Megan of Mackey Madness, Michaela of Michaela Noelle Designs, and I are joining forces to continue the love spreading and kindness making….

The DEETS:
Think of a way (or several ways) that you can give a friend, neighbor, spouse, stranger, mother, brother, etc. an act of kindness with no explanation or expectation of praise. This my friends is a little way to pay it forward to the world around us, and continue to encourage what we all could use a little more of. Put up a post about how you spread the love, and NEXT MONDAY, Feb. 6th Megan will be hosting a link up party where we all celebrate and bloghop to see how everyone is paying it forward!
Some ideas to get you going:

-Write a handwritten letter to an old friend or new.
-By flowers for a co-worker.
-Call a family member to tell them you love them just because.
-Pay for the person’s starbucks’ behind you. (Everyone’s dream)
-Pay for the person’s car behind you at the toll booth (my husband loves to do this one).
-Start a conversation with that person you never talk to.
-Smile and make eye contact with people you walk by. (Its strangely rare these days)
-Check in your local hospice or elderly home and offer help or visit. (You would be surprised how many of them have no family visiting them!)
– Offer to do your husbands usual chores. (ie, if he always takes out the trash or irons his shirts, do it for him!)
-On the road, let those mergers in. (Cuz we all know it takes every act of the will to do so)

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Thanks in advance for taking part:)
P.S. Save your outfit posts, link up will be back soon!


The True Beauty Files:
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” 
~ Audrey Hepburn
