I am a Natural Beauty.

Look mom, no makeup, except for my favorite shade of bright pink lipstick! 

Things have been so so crazy lately, I haven't had a chance to do a Natural Beauty Post for a while, which is such a shame, as there are already three other lovely natural beauties!

Did you know that there are support websites that promote the maintaining anorexia and bulimia in a "healthy" way. Aside from the fact that there is no way that either can ever be good for the body, these kind of cites illustrate how warped and distorted society's view of "beauty" really is. It has created in the mind of all of us, to some degree, an unhealthy, unobtainable beauty "ideal". I hope that we all can avoid judgment and offer appropriate and kind support to anyone who we know who may struggle with either of these frightening disorders. 

I hope you will also join with me in promoting natural health, and realistic beauty! I am 24, I weigh 145 pounds, and I love every one of them. I am beautiful, and healthy. I try to take care of the wonderful gift which is my body by exercising regularly, and I love and value my body for what it is!

If you post once or more a month about natural beauty, put my button up on your sidebar, and shoot me an email so I can add you to our list! Hopefully I'll be able to get a regular link up soon!
