Beauty in all forms has been a lifelong passion for me. With an appreciation for killer aesthetic combined with substance, it doesn’t matter to me if I’m looking at something vast and humbling as the ocean; the way someone’s face lights up when they smile; the solid, magnificent way in which a great tree anchors itself to the ground and stoically provides enough oxygen for two humans for a lifetime; or it could be the incredible lines of wear and character on the face of an old Tibetan woman, totally ravaged and laid bare as a proud road map of her lifetime and how she’s lived in it.
There isn’t an ideal or perfect beauty. We are all so completely and utterly different. You can have someone drop dead gorgeous who is shallow and mean and she’ll seem like the most unattractive person on the planet. Conversely, you might meet someone not so physically attractive but with a beautiful personality and radiance that can take your breath away. Beauty can’t be separated from the personality no matter how much spritzing, spraying, waxing and killing yourself on the treadmill you think will make you beautiful.
In case any of you are thinking, “what the hell, I just want to know what the next big lip color is not get a deep and meaningful diatribe!!” I just want you to know… I’m a self-confessed organic glamazon and responsible hedonist. Fashion and beauty are two of my biggest passions. I love dressing well, I love to be surrounded by art & culture, I love great food and I take time to make myself look good because all these things give me pleasure. I believe too that something applied artfully to transform a thing into beauty, is as beautiful as something naturally occuring.
It just felt right to bring this up as a starting point for what will be loads of discourse on organic and natural beauty, beauty products and the beauty industry. Remember – beauty is subjective, it’s everywhere, in everything and we all have it in some way, shape or form. It’s all just a matter of how you choose to see it.
