Beauty shines 'through you' - its not always what you layer on yourself and what you use to decorate the body you have! I personally want to take a pledge to be more vulnerable, to be myself in all my glory, to accept every aspect of myself!!! I hope that more women around the world will take a similar pledge -to be themselves and to love themselves, just as they are!
