What is beauty? What does it mean to be beautiful, or to feel beautiful? Is it more important to look beautiful on the outside, or to be a beautiful person through our actions? Does beauty within really outweigh our physical beauty?

We often hear that it is what is on the inside that counts, but it can be hard to believe when we are bombarded with adds for wrinkle creams and blemish creams, diet shakes and make up miracle products! With photoshopping and apps that can help us “look more attractive” it is hard to even know what anyone really looks like from a photo anymore. Last Monday in the #mg link up I had a post linked up that touched so beautifully on this topic, a mum had photos taken of herself with some results that I just have to share with you. The post was by Obsessive Mom and I highly recommended you click on the following link and take a read. “No Space for Vanity“.

I will be sharing my own beauty post tomorrow, so make sure you stop by for a read. But today I will be linking up my post on How To Handle Rejection! If you haven’t read it make sure you click HERE and take a read.

Now it is time for my favourite #livingfearlesslyauthentic pics! 

I really love this stunning photograph below of tulips. Tulips hold a special place in my heart as they always remind me of my British Grandmother. She had a gorgeous coloured vase that she had tulips in when I was a little girl. I have so many fond memories of her, and I wish she was still here to chat to. This lovely photograph was taken by @mommyandrory when she got a new phone after her previous one was rudely stolen.

I love that this IG community is growing, and I love people celebrating ‘real life’, and not pretending to be anything they are not, just sharing real photos of everyday moments, messes, and beautiful captures like this sweet moment from @admofaworkmum holding her baby niece for the first time.

I also love this little adventurous spirit captured by @_mam_do

and of course all these gorgeous captures . . .
