The Choose Beauty Linkup

UPDATE: This series is current and ongoing—catch up on all of the posts here, and check back on Thursdays for new content from me, as well as links to blog posts from other women participating!

Over the past month or so, I’ve been participating in something honest and beautiful that has not only allowed me to open up more to you all, but also given me to dig deeper and process some of my inner self- and body-image issues. The Love Yourself Linkup is something Anne Taylor of Anne The Adventurer thought up, and I’m so grateful that she did! And because I’ve loved the exercise so much, I’ve decided it’s time to start a linkup of my own in hopes that I can connect even more with you, and also give you an opportunity to join in and share about similar issues on your own personal platform.

Introducing The Choose Beauty Linkup // www.thoughtsbynatalie.com

What is the Choose Beauty Linkup? 
The Choose Beauty Linkup is a series that will focus on topics related to beauty—what real beauty is, what makes us feel beautiful, how we pursue lasting beauty in our lives, the roots behind our body image issues, etc. Through our posts, we’ll share thoughts, experiences, inspirations, challenges and more with the hope of changing the voice about beauty that we’re hearing in our culture today.

How do I join?
Just click on the link below the post that says “Click Here to Enter” and add in your post information. Then grab the Choose Beauty Linkup logo and the linkup code, and add it to the bottom of your post (in html). When you add the linkup code to your blog, it will look just like what’s displayed on the bottom of my post and will include links to everyone who is participating in the linkup that week!

When does the linkup happen?
We’ll kick this series off one week from today on Thursday, July 25, and each Thursday following there will be a new Choose Beauty post up! For the sake of flexibility, you’ll have a chance to join in on it through the Sunday following.

Who can participate?
Anyone who has a blog! Regardless of what your blog is about or what you do for a living, you are invited to join in on this. If you care about exploring true beauty—which reaches beyond physical appearance—I’d love you to participate!

For the first week, you can look forward to hearing from the following women who share my passion for being a positive influence in our culture’s voice about beauty…

If you tweet about this or post on Instagram, please use the hashtag #choosebeautylinkup to help spread the word. Can’t wait to get started!
