WAITING ON MARTHA
A blog dedicated to helping you create a beautiful day every day

In Honor of Design + Dean Street Society #EncourageBeauty

March 4, 2013

When I heard about what Anna of In Honor of Design and Hilary of Dean Street Society  were doing to encourage beauty in women all over the world during the month of March I knew I had to be a part of it.

In their own words…”The root of the word “encourage” is “to put courage in”. You have the ability every day, to put courage in another person. You have the choice to use your words and actions to inspire confidence in everyone you talk to.”  And from this simple, yet powerful idea the #encouragebeauty campaign was born.

So how can you get involved?  Simply pop on over to In Honor of Design or Dean Street Society to learn more, download the manifesto’s, print out your encourage beauty calendar and start sharing and encouraging others.

Could there be a more perfect way to start the week?  xoxo #encouragebeauty

  • ALLI / 03.18.2013

    I just have to thank you for mentioning the “encourage beauty” campaign at the beginning of the month. It inspired me to send a brief note/card to all the women in my life (mom’s, sisters, friends) just telling them that they are beautiful and that I love them.

    I cannot tell you how I many of them have contacted me to tell me how much it meant, or that it came at “just” the right time, when they needed to hear it! (Of course, don’t we all long to hear that everyday – or rather need to hear it everyday!). It made everyone feel beautiful!!!

    So, I just wanted to pass along a BIG thank you! And please feel free to pass this along to the ladies that started it.

    Blessings/XOXO, Alli

  • That is fantastic Alli! Thank you SO much for sharing and hopefully we’ll keep encouraging beauty long after March is over!

    xo

  • Oh Alli I absolutely love hearing that! So touched that our little idea meant so much to some women who mean so much to you. :)

    with grace & gumption, Hilary
