Own Your Beauty - BlogHer Post


Own Your Beauty at BlogHer is dedicated to changing the way women see themselves, talk about themselves, feel about themselves. After reading their mission statement below, I knew I had to be a part of the movement happening there. I've taken the pledge to change how we think about ourselves, as women.

I am proud that a post I submitted to Own Your Beauty at BlogHer is syndicated there today.

As BlogHer states it, so well:

Let’s take all the energy we've spent on endless loops of negative feedback about everything from the way we live our lives to our butts, our hips, our boobs and, for pete's sake, even our ankles - and use it instead to power something positive and meaningful.

Let's celebrate the beauty of authenticity and share it with everyone we know.


  1. Oh man. Women, as a whole, need to do this. That said: I'm skeered.

  2. What a great idea this is! Congrats on getting your post syndicated over there! Off to check it out.

  3. Uh Oh. Guess I'd better delete the post I just published. *Sigh*
    It is a great concept. negative self talk has gone on for 50 years. I dont know if I can change it now but Im willing to try.
    Going to check it out. This truly is a much much much needed effort for todays women.

  4. spot on is so easily confused...and supported by our culture in a very unhealthy way...

  5. It comes as no surprise that you're involved with this. How do you do it all, Empress? And yes, I'm back. :) For the moment.

  6. Thank you so much for re-iterating this on Blogher.

    Since I have become "just past 40", I have come to realize that the superficial goals for my body, don't do justice for what is on the inside.

    Oh, I do want to present myself well. However, I no longer dream of being Barbie. And that, is the best gift I have been able to give myself.

  7. I love this...and I love the pledge. I signed it.

    You are fabulous. I love that they included this post of yours as part of this series.

  8. Congratulations Alexandra! Going to check it out. What a great mission and message :)

  9. Love this one, my dear....commented and sparkled you!
