Over the weekend I decided to take Madison to the Garden of the Gods, known for it's exceptional natural beauty, here in Colorado Springs. It's a place where you can relax and enjoy nature and as I like to say, stop sweating the small stuff. Life can get hectic and sometimes you just need to sit back and smell the roses, or in this case, look at the mountains. You also have to Be Bold, Be Strong, Be Belle! You may have noticed the pun on 'Belle'. Disney's Beauty and the Beast live action film hit theaters on March 17th, and Madison and I are both excited to see it. Belle is the embodiment of a fearless beauty, not only is she beautiful, but her strength and bravery shines through and you can see it.
Madison has always been strong in character, but fearless, not so much. You may have noticed that she very rarely smiles and you may think that she's never happy, but that is very far from the truth. She is one of the most lovable child on this planet. She loves to give hugs, is very polite, loves to share and is such a pleasure, and a treasure to be around. She reminds me very much of my own mother whom I lost almost 2 years ago. My mother very rarely smiled, but had such a strong character, that everyone who met her was left with a lasting impression, never to be forgotten. Fearless Beauty is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and being one with yourself. Having no fear and embracing your oneness. We are all not alike, we're all different and we all have our strengths and our fears, but it's overcoming those fears that make us fearless.
Madison is not a fan of heights but she overcame her fear to take these beautiful photos for us, all the while showing us how fearless she is. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder as they say, but what does beauty mean to you? Beauty for us is not about physical appearances. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and is about being kind, doing what's right, being kind to others, helping others and being a good person, but most of all, beauty is being yourself. That's what makes Madison such a Fearless Beauty, and of course, she's beautiful, in her own way.
GAP with their ongoing collaboration with Disney has launched their new Beauty and the Beast collection, inspired by both the original Disney animated classic which we all know and love, and the new Beauty and the Beast live action film coming to theaters March 17th. Their collection features an assortment of clothing for kids and will be available through the week of April 3rd. The collection, which is made exclusively for girls, includes dresses, leggings, tops, denim jeans/jackets with references to the film, including rose embroidery, graphics of the iconic profile of Belle and the Beast, Belle’s books, the Enchanted Rose as well as “Belle” and “Bonjour” text on t-shirts and also highlights Mrs. Potts and Chip on t-shirts, dresses, skirts, and denim.
The “Fearless Beauty” campaign features a cast of motivational girls, including April Star, a 10-year-old girl with vitiligo, a condition that leaves her with patches of white discoloration all over her body, that she powerfully displays in beautiful images. The cast also includes the Tiny Terrors, a roller derby team of skater girls aged 8 to 10 in the Gotham Girls Junior League of New York City, who is currently ranked number one in the world by the Women’s Flat Truck Derby Association, roller derby’s largest governing body.
