This Friday, Shannon from A Girl’s Gotta Spa joins Bionic Beauty to share her thoughts on Achieving Powerful Beauty.
First here’s a little background on Shannon and her blog…
In 2005, Shannon launched her beauty blog, A Girl’s Gotta Spa! (making her one of the original beauty bloggers!) as a forum to merge her love of beauty products and writing and give consumers product reviews they could relate to.
Shannon lives in Northeast PA with her four young sons, who are of course, the most beautiful children in the world (but who’s bias?).
So how does Shannon Achieve Powerful Beauty?
I achieve powerful beauty by helping others. Goodness, kindness and sincere concern for others is really the most beautiful thing to see in a person…and when they do good for others, it shows in their demeanor, relationships and personality. Plus isn’t it the most wonderful feeling knowing that you helped someone else? And this makes the saying “beautiful inside and out” a very true statement.
Doing good for others doesn’t have to cost money nor does it even have to be for someone you know. Last year I heard about a 7 year old girl in my son’s school who needed money for a medical procedure that her insurance denied to pay for. Just networking with my beauty blog friends and auctioning off the unused beauty samples I had in my office, we were able to raise $2000 for her. Two years prior I collaborated with my local American Cancer Society to hold a “Shop for a Cure” in which we raised $1230. I don’t tell you this to brag, but more to inspire you. It can be done, even if you are only one person. Think of it this way–Mother Teresa was one person. Martin Luther King Jr. was one person. Mahatma Gandi was one person.
I can assure you that one act of kindness always leads to another. You are creating an opportunity for your one act to grow into hundreds more when the person you helped helps someone else in return. So what can you do to bring beauty into someone else’s life?
Catch up on the rest of the Powerful Beauty features. And remember to check back each Friday for another dose of how to Achieve Powerful Beauty!
