Beauty Through The Ages

What is beauty? How do you explain it? The official defintion of beauty is: a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. I think it means something different to us all.  For me it's this undescribable force that make your lips unknowingly curve into a smile. Something that pleases your soul without you even thinking about it. It can be that sleeping baby, or the moment when you look at your husband and he looks kinda cute and you aren't mad with him. I have 3 girls and I'm concious of the fact that I have a huge impact on how they view beauty, I can often be heard yelling, 'JUST ROCK WHAT YA GOT BABY'  You got a big butt, then rock that thing, you got a funky nose, then hold it high and rate it.  Mel xoxoxo 

Here is Carens take on it

Beauty & style: --As a younger woman, I would always look ahead to the future thinking I would feel better about myself when I was older.. Thinking that confidence comes with age.. I have seen so many circumstances where the opposite has happened.. We can tend to get lost along the way.. Whether it's years of constantly giving out to everyone else without looking after yourself, being battered down about your appearance by a sarcastic partner, awful teenage brat, or being walked all over at work.. At the end of the day, confidence begins with the individual, no need to wait untill the one day we are a certain size or to simply give up thinking it's too late!! To me, beauty & style is feeling comfortable within ourselves & making the most of what we have been given! We all get a little lost along the way, so don't be afraid to ask for help!!xoxCaren

 
 
 The lovely Caren form DO HAIR and I got our creative crazy heads together and came up with a concept. Beauty Through The Ages. Caren picked 6 gorgeous ladies and hair was done, style was styled and makeup was mastered by the amazing AMY MURRY from BLUSH. We captured these beauties and here are their pictures and their story of what style and beauty mean to them. We hope you enjoy. Melxoxoxoxooxo
 
 
  Beauty means more than what's on the surface. It's about being comfortable in your own skin.

Beauty and style means having great hair! And wearing what I feel good in- not because it has a label, not because it is fashionable, not because someone else wears it but because I like it and it makes me feel good.

To me style is about showing your personality through the image you manufacture for the world to see. Clothes, hair, makeup and attitude. Almost anything can look stylish if you have the confidence and attitude to pull it off. Beauty is about who you are on the inside. Allowing who you are as a person to shine through in your actions, gestures and general persona. The two combined show the best version of yourself.

My style is practical and comfortable. To be honest I struggle to embrace new looks or styles, I don't quite have the confidence to try anything different.

Feeling good in my own skin and being happy with what I have- thats what means the most to me and what beauty and style means to me.
