Q&A: What Makes You Feel Beautiful?

Q&A:

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL?

In my recent blog post, I teamed up with Fresh Tangerine to give away a gorgeous ring and in the mechanics, I added a bonus question for you ladies to have a better chance at winning! I was very happy because there were so many of you who joined and answered my question but unfortunately, the winner I picked randomly from a bowl draw was someone who didn't actually answer the blog question. (I made a whole snapchat story on how I picked my winner and what I did there basically was I wrote all the qualified names down on a paper and put all those names in a bowl for a draw, and I wrote two extra names for those who answered the question on my blog post. So the people who answered my blog post had 3 names in the bowl, as opposed to the ones who only entered through Instagram and only had one name in the draw.) 

 

I asked you:

what makes you feel beautiful?

and I just loved all of your answers!

So I figured in this post, I'd feature all the answers you gave me! 

Paige Smith: As a woman it isn't always easy to feel beautiful and lovely every single day of our lives. Though most things like a new outfit or a cooperative hair day might boost our confidence I truly believe having a kind, adventurous soul is the most transparent form of beauty. Never do I feel more beautiful than when I am spreading love amongst others as well as being surrounded by the natural glories of the outdoors. Learning to feel beautiful is a journey every young woman goes down but only our outer appearance is half of the whole picture. Joy, love and passions are ways beauty is truly emaculated.

Carmela Poral: Whenever I get to do random acts of kindness, it feels like radiating beauty onto others - making them see that life is beautiful. And so if I radiate beauty to them, then I have that beauty.

Pauline De Asis: To be honest, looking at my son's eyes and my partner's as well make me feel beautiful. Inside and out. Every time I look in the mirror, I always think of insecurities. That's how it goes. Maybe not just for me but for other ladies out there. But when I look into my partner's eyes I can see a reflection of beauty and love. He can make me feel the most beautiful woman in the world. How he tells and reminds me every time that I am BEAUTIFUL.

Michelle Claassen: I feel beautiful when I'm laughing alongside my closest of friends. There's something about spending time with your closest girlfriends that makes any insecurities vanish. There's no time to worry about your flaws when you're busy laughing the night away!

Ashley Bree Perez: When I laugh I feel beautiful. But not just that.. I also feel beautiful after I take a shower and do my hair and put my makeup on. A nice scent of perfume sprayed on me makes me feel beautiful too. 

 
Isaiah Sarah Gonzalo: I feel beautiful when I'm being myself. I know I am beautiful when I'm with my sisters because I can be myself around them without being judged. My beautiful personality (and genes) makes me feel beautiful.

Angelica Bautista: What makes me feel beautiful is by being true to myself especially when I'm with my family, friends, and loved ones because when I'm with them I don't need to pretend or to be conscious of what I wear/act. They accept me for what I am, no matter how crazy or moody I am. It's their love and care that makes me feel complete. Also having an intimate relationship with God is what makes me most beautiful, I don't need anyones opinion about me cause through His Words I am confident on who I am and that is I'm the daughther of the most High God. Surely taking care of ourselves is a good thing, nothing's wrong with putting on makeup and all that but I've realized that physical beauty isn't the most important but what inside you is.

Chelsea Nagayama: I feel beautiful when I am laughing with my closest friends.

Karisa Carlos: I always feel beautiful after I get a fresh hair cut & color and also whenever I have a cute new outfit to wear!

Rovelyne: Regardless of the fancy accessories I wear and how dry my hands can get, it will always be the way my other half holds my hand that makes me feel beautiful.

 

If I were to answer my own question, I'd say that my husband makes me feel beautiful. Honestly, when I looked in the mirror before, I didn't really feel pretty at all. I look at myself and I see all my flaws and imperfections and the next thing I know, my confidence went running out the door. But I'm really blessed to have met my husband because he makes me a way better version of me. I can't really explain how, but I've never felt beautiful in my life until I met him. Before, I always felt like I needed to make myself pleasing to everyone's eyes but now, knowing that I AM BEAUTIFUL in my husband's eyes makes all the difference. There's just this confidence inside me now that makes me NOT WANT to try too hard. I'm very grateful to have such an amazing husband. He makes me feel content about my physical appearance but beauty is way beyond just our faces.

I'm not saying this just because it's like a "goody good girl" kind of answer but I honestly believe that as long as a woman's heart is as pure and as beautiful and as good as God wants it to be, she'll be the most beautiful she can ever be. -CS
