To quote Audrey Hepburn. . .

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

Beauty tips from the pros #FTW.

The beauty of summer

These days, we've traded our lazy-afternoon-in-a-hammock-reading-a-book summers of yore for blowing bubbles and applying sunscreen to very wiggly toddlers.

And we love it.

One mama shares her tips on how to rock motherhood this summer. Like #6—get outdoors. It's hard to resist a great attitude when the sun is shining, the breeze is swaying, and the babe is happy.

These are the days, mama. ☀️

The beauty of change

Who rules? Moms.

Who runs the world—and countries, and companies? In too many cases, mothers are kept out of top leadership positions.

We're ready to be the change generation putting mothers in positions of power.

Leith Greenslade creator of the Motherhood+Public Power Index, shows us exactly how we can be the change we want to see in the House—and the Senate. And the boardroom.

The beauty of support

Military mamas possess a special breed of strength. Rachel Starnes, wife of a U.S. Navy pilot, mama to two boys, and author of the newly released memoir, The War at Home: A Wife's Search for Peace, shares how she manages life with her two boys while her husband is away—with the love and support of her military family.

“My immediate family of four is not always together. But my larger, ever-changing military family is always there. We hold each up other, we help with the messes, and we remind each to stop and capture the beautiful moments before they pass us by."

The sisterhood of the motherhood at it's finest.

The beauty of individuality

When it comes to discipline, it seems everyone has an opinion. You're supposed to do this, you're supposed to say that—who can keep up?

Truth is—there's no one way to do it. Every child is unique and what may work well for one, will not work for the other. Carol Tuttle encourages us in her latest article, “Stop trying to sort through all the advice of what you should do and start doing what your child's already telling you will work."

(They don't call her The Child Whisperer for nothin'!)

Have a beautiful week, mama—

xo,
