Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder‘ ~¬†Margaret Wolfe Hungerford

Beauty is only skin deep‘ ~¬†Sir Thomas Overbury

I’m sure you are familiar with these quotes. I read a great book last week called The Ravenous Gown and 14 more Tales about Real Beauty by Steffani Raff. It was a lot of fun, but it also had a very profound underlying message. It challenges the idea that you have to fit society’s idea of beauty in order to be loved and accepted. It’s about being yourself, and being happy in the skin you’re in. It’s in our library now just waiting to be taken home and enjoyed.
