Beautiful Girl of the Week is a series of Beautiful Girls who are stand outs for what they contribute to the world through their beautiful actions! We feature the Beautiful Girl of the Week on the Rewrite Beautiful blog as an attempt to inspire other girls and women to use their own gifts and talents to impact their communities. Our hope is that bringing positive attention to women’s actions will inspire them to embrace their own creative calling!
Natalie is one of those infectious women that you just get enough of! The best way to describe Natalie is sincere, hilarious and wise. Every time I talk to Natalie I start to think, “Yes! I can do this?” “Who’s the world messin’ with? You best not be messin’ with me world!” Natalie’s energy is a multi-faceted woman; lighthearted, deep, fun and outgoing. I hope you all appreciate the beautiful girl she is as much as I do!
Irvina: What is a fun project you’re currently working on?
Natalie: Currently, I am learning how to live a "greener" life. With that being said, I am trying to treat the earth and my body with the best possible care.
Irvina: Awe! I’m so happy to hear that! Too many women over work themselves and the whole world suffers for it. It’s awesome to see women advocating for themselves! So, what are you passionate about?
Natalie: I am so passionate about self-care and treating yourself and your environment the best you can! Life is so much more enjoyable when you are nourished, emotionally, spiritually and physically! I also LOVE to run, it’s my time to meditate and think.
Irvina: How funny, I’m the same way with running. I get the most creative ideas while running. It actually makes me run faster to get home and write it down! So, what do you do for fun?
Natalie: For fun, I love to run, do yoga, see movies, plays, lay out at the beach, go out to eat, get frozen yogurt, and read!
Irvina: Yes! I’m such a Yogi and Book Worm too! I also like to call myself a Professional Layer Outer ;) So Natalie, whether it’s a hobby, a job or friendships what do you contribute to the world that you’re most proud of?
Natalie: I contribute positivity to the world. I really want girls and women out there to know that there is life outside of the diet and calorie counting prison. Life is so fun and it’s so easy to miss it if you are stuck on taking yourself too seriously! Every woman is beautiful and has something unique to offer the world. Even just smiling and have a positive attitude goes such a long way! I try to remember I would never try to fit my size 8 foot into a size 5 1/2 shoe size so why would I do that to my body?! It’s just crazy!
Irvina: That shoe size thing is pretty clever. I might have to steal it! So, which action of CREATIVITY, KINDNESS and STRENGTH do you think you most exhibit in your community and WHY?
Natalie: I would say kindness. I offer a sense of encouragement and support to my community of women. I also try and support local farmer's markets and the community library.
Irvina: Beautiful! Who is the most beautiful woman you know and why?
Of course I want to say my mother. My mom is the strongest, dedicated and faithful person I have ever met. She is never judging and always forgiving. On the celebrity side, I really admire Kate Middleton and Carrie Underwood. Both have a killer sense of style and really know how to carry themselves with class and integrity.
Irvina: Strength, faith and class are some of my favorite things in women too! Nice choices! What do you wish young women knew about beauty?
Natalie: I would like young women to remember that just because someone is pretty on the outside doesn't mean she is pretty on the inside. Beauty comes when you exude self-esteem and confidence it also has lots of shapes and sizes!
