 Lot’s of girls love fashion and Christy is one of them. But, does loving fashion mean you have to compromise your family and your values? According to Christy you don’t, which is why this brave girl is Beautiful Girl of the Week!

Christy has worked in the corporate world of some high flyin’ fashion dynasty’s like Abercrombie & Fitch and James Perse. However prestige and a fat bank account doesn’t compete with the love that she has for her faith and her family. Being the smart chick that she is, Christy and her husband Gary dreamed up a way to combine all of their passions into one exciting creative vision. That vision turned out to be the beachy-hipster-esque-family clothing line named, ever/after (after their daughter Ever. Who actually also inspired the Rewrite Beautiful vision! Check out that story here)

The cool thing about creativity is it has no limits! Christy and Gary decided to invite others into ever/after by CHANGING THE STORY. With each garment sold there is a “Change the Story Card”. You get to choose a cause in either Africa, Mexico or Santa Ana and change the story of a childs life! For more info visit this link at ever/after.  If only EVERY clothing line got on the kindness bandwagon ever/after is leading!

I see so much strength in Christy. She humbly tells people that Gary is the risk taker of the two and from time to time she says she gets scared of all the ups and downs that go into starting your own business. In my friendship with her I have seen her walk through fears, pick up all of her courage to pursue her dreams and not back down from talking about the faith that is taking ever/after to 40 stores come April! I am so privileged to know this beautiful girl, I hope ya’ll are as inspired by her as I have been.

Keepin’ it Beautiful,

Happy Friday Rewriter’s!

Did you know that being an artist takes a lot of bloody courage? Every artist has to face the fear of taking their emotions and opinions and putting them on display for all to see. They also have to live with the potential critiques and ridicule that come with creating. However, BEAUTIFUL Girls like Sarah are brave and create no matter if someone thinks their creations are awesome or not. Which is why she is our Beautiful Girl of the Week!

 Not only is Sarah a brave and talented artist, she is also contributing her artistic gifting by being one of the 17 artists creating art for the Rewrite Beautiful Art Show in July! This isn’t the first time Sarah has created for charity. Last November she created art for the da:lit Art Show that supported the work of Harvest India.

Like all of our Beautiful Girl’s, Sarah’s cares deeply about using her time to have a positive impact on her community. When she puts her paintbrush down, she is doing another brave thing: ADOPTING! And not from just anywhere, she is adopting from Ghana. Word on the blogosphere is that adopting ain’t as easy as pickin’ out frozen yogurt. It is a emotional, physical, psychological and financially challenging journey to adopt a child. However, Sarah and her family are ready to take on the challenge and give an orphan a home. Describing this kind of action with the word KIND seems painfully obvious. Maybe that’s what kindness really is though? Maybe kindness is looking for where there is an obvious need, looking at ourselves and what we have to offer and offering it even if it is uncomfortable. All new things are uncomfortable until they’re done right? But the satisfaction of completing something that your soul has asked you to do is a monumentus feeling that makes the reason for humanity understandable.

Whether it’s being a brave artist or a courageous adopting parent, Sarah is strong and shows it in her actions. Rewrite Beautiful is proud to know this remarkable girl. We hope you were inspired by her beauty today!

P.S. Sarah and her family are raising funds for the adoption of their child from Ghana. In creatively awesome style they have debuted some children’s T-Shirts that are for sale to assist in fundraising for the adoption. If you would like to play a part in giving an orphan a home and seeing a kiddo you know rock this adorable T then please visit the link below.

We’re doing a little zig-zag action! Last week The Beautiful Girls of the Week were from the East Coast, Rachael and Elena from New Jersey! Now we’re headed back West to Cali..Northern Cali that is to spotlight our next Beautiful Girl of the Week: MISTY! I love Misty! And by the end of this post you will love this BEAUTIFUL girl too! Misty is beautiful because she is CREATIVE and participating in the Vagina Monologues next week in San Francisco! The Vagina Monologues is a play which include scenes that highlight current issues affecting women around the world. Thousands of local benefit productions are staged around the world to raise funds for local groups, shelters, crisis centers working to end violence against women. Awesome right? Well our very own beautiful Misty will performing her monologue in front of the coolest hipsters in the world -  The Bay Area Hipsters. We’re so proud of this creative chick!

Not only is Misty creative, but she is KIND. Every time I see Misty she is chatting about literature or sharing a laugh that usually ends in a Misty snort! She brings intellect, class and good vibes with her wherever she goes.

But, Misty wouldn’t be completely beautiful if she wasn’t also STRONG and strong she is. Misty has no qualms about speaking up and sharing her opinions even when others don’t agree. And according to her boyfriend her stellar communication skills are quite sexy even if they include crying right before bed about missing her family and friends down in So Cal. Sensitivity seems to be quite Beautiful to the man folk.  Thank’s for BEING BEAUTIFUL Misty! You inspire me!

P.S. If you are going to be in the Bay Area on March 24th  2011 or March 25th 2011, check out Misty’s performance in The Vagina Monologues. More details by clicking right over…not there…not there…HERE!

This week our Beautiful Girls of the Week are Elena Baxter & Rachael Lechliter. We consider these two sisters from New Jersey BEAUTIFUL because they are CREATIVE, KIND and STRONG in many ways! First of all they are CREATIVE by being the revolutionary founders of Lifestyle & Charity Magazine. They created the magazine to inspire other to create a culture of giving no matter what industry they are in. They are KIND in that LC Magazine organizes mixers, events and features articles and products about giving back to charity. They are STRONG for using their gifts and talents in order to benefit others. The magazine business is a tough one. They could have gone several other routes, but they chose a route that benefits others as well. I know them personally because  they brought me on to write a True Beauty column for LC Magazine and I have loved every minute of it! They not only let me write about topics that are near and dear to my heart, they are supportive of the Rewrite Beautiful mission.  According to Rewrite Beautiful Elena and Rachael are pretty smokin’ Beautiful!

Keepin’ it Beautiful,

Say holla back to our Beautiful Girl of the Week: Marie!


Nominated by: Nini Spice


Marie is Beautiful because she is: Creative. Marie creates friendships that are deep and meaningful. Whether it be her friends, family, daughter or husband people know that they are loved when Marie is in their life. Marie is KIND, she doesn’t hesitate to speak up and do the right thing. Even when the right thing is really stinkin’ sucky! She is STRONG. She is a hard working mom, wife, sister and aunt. When her family or friends need her she steps it up and makes time to be strong and supportive of the people she loves. Marie could definitely afford to step it back a couple notches and she would STILL be incredibly Beautiful.  Thanks Marie for rewriting beautiful in all of your actions. Xoxo Nini Spice

 Hey you! Happy Friday! If you would like to tell a girl that she is beautiful please email a picture of the person and why they are beautiful to Irvina@RewriteBeautiful.org

“The pleasure of love is in loving. We are happier in the passion we feel than in that we arouse.”



– Duc de la Rochefoucauld



 Happy Valentines Day Beautifuls! This one is for all of you CREATIVE girls out there who are being BEAUTIFUL today with your creativity. My friend Carolyn made love for everyone in our office today (not like that pervert) she made a little Valentine goodie bag full of cheesecake, macaroons, chocolate and love quotes. The place was filled with ooohs, ahhs, sugar highs and good juju. My favorite part was the back of the bags that said, “Handcrafted with love by Carolyn.” Even though everyone in our office loved the goodies Carolyn made I think she loved giving them out just as much. There is something profound that happens when we genuinely give to others. Not out of of obligation, but simply out of , "Hey I think you're cool! I had some time and wanted to be creative so here you go! Happy Valentine's Day! I love ya!" Knowing that you made people feel love just by being yourself, always makes me feel pretty smokin' beautiful! Whether it be with a hug, a smile, a phone call cookies or chocolate I hope you participate in creating and being BEAUTIFUL today!  xoxo
