I am Brave and Beautiful - a beauty movement that is sweeping the globe. Colbie Caillat started it with her recent song and video called TRY. My blogging friend Megan of Brassy Apple wanted to push this movement along and invited women from all over to share what they looked like without make up and I joined in!! Colbie's song says, "Take your make up off. Let your hair down... Look into the mirror at yourself, Do you like you? Cause I like you... "
Megan and her friend Cobi of Peacefrom6pieces have been the team behind this whole project. Their worldwide vision included creating their own video inspired by the song TRY. The talent of Robbins Creative made it possible for them to pull it off. You have to click play and see the beauty and bravery displayed and you might even recognize a few faces in there.

Me along with 101+ other blogging women from different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, ages, shapes and sizes have decided to be Brave and Beautiful! You can join in this movement too by sharing what you look like without makeup on. You don't need a blog either! Just tag your photo with #IamBraveAndBeautiful on Instgram and search the hashtag to see who else has joined in. ALSO, if you tag it with a second hashtag - #ColbieTRY we just might be able to get Colbie Caillat's attention since she was the inspiration behind it all!
Are you brave and beautiful? I am, here I go!

Makeup. Check. Hair curled. Check. Cute outfit. Check. This photo was taking with a professional camera by a good friend of mine when we were taking pictures for our blogs. I always feel so great when I am fully done up and ready to go! Don't you? 

Above is my picture without any stitch of makeup. This picture was taken by my Husband Josh late last night. This was right after I got out of the shower. Hair wet, frizzy, unstyled, bushy eyebrows and baring it all with no makeup. One of my favorite parts of the day is getting home taking off my work clothes, putting on my comfies, throwing my hair up into a ponytail and washing all my makeup off. This is me. This is the real me..the real me that God created me to be. Behind all that makeup I am still Kimberly. Kind, caring, loving and thoughtful. I believe that if you let your beauty that is within side of you shine, it will radiate through your face and you will not only be beautiful on the inside, but also on the outside too.

share your natrual beauty -

Don't stop here. Get clicking around - its a blog hop! Below are more brave and beautiful women bearing more than their natural beauty. They each have a little bit of their heart to share with you. Some get very personal. Some share stories. For some this was very hard to do yet they gathered their courage and did it anyway. We hope as you click around (and YES pin these different posts!) you will feel the importance of it, the empowering effect it has and that it encourages you in some way.

Kimberly, you look breathtaking with or out without makeup. I love your comment, this is me how God made me. I think this is something we are all forgetting about. We are created so perfect, so beautiful and we all are. Sometimes makeup, hair and trying to be someone we are not allow us to forget who we really are, we act different, think different to the point were when the make up is gone, we dont like the person in the mirror. What an amazing movement and all I see is perfection! We are all beautiful and unique thats what make us so different from each other. I LIKE WHAT A SEE!!! Best post in the world!
