Beauty Comes In All Shapes And Sizes

Today, Navabi release their Beauty Comes In All Shapes And Sizes campaign where they aim to reach as many people as they can with the goal of exploring what Beauty REALLY means to us.


Beauty is so subjective. For example, I find those big white wind turbines beautiful but most people think they're vile. Yes, I am using renewable energy as an example of what beauty is, that's the kinda guy I am (I even wrote a post about it many years ago) 

Anyway, moving on from turbines and the such. The Navabi campaign is all about letting us know that we are ALL beautiful just the way we are. With this in mind, I want you all to think about what you value in other people, what makes them BEAUTIFUL to you? 

Beauty isn't just about shiny hair and nice bottoms - I DO like those things but I like other things too. Beauty, to me, is a culmination of the following:
Integrity
Self-Awareness
Compassion
Tolerance

I will always be attracted to someone who is both engaging and engaged. I will always find someone with compassion beautiful. Over the years I have wondered at the beauty of many a human (just try and stop me) gender, size, shape don't come into it. I find beauty in imperfection, in diversity, in things and people that break from the "norm"


With all of this in mind, I'd like to give a special nod to some of the most beautiful women I know:

My Mum - My Mum has never been anybody but herself; She has never given into peer pressure or pressure of ANY kind come to think of it... She is the eternal realist and nothing phases her. Plus she's always been a hot mum and I like that. My Dad and her raised me to be the woman who I am, and my sister to be the woman who she is. Which leads me to...

My sister Kate - Kate is a ridiculous human, she is one of, if not THE most precious things I have in my life. She dances and she sings (She once thought she was an undiscovered opera singer for ages), she listens and she cares. She gave me a niece that I would literally murder for (I will delete this post if there is ever a murder) and she is just an all round wonderfully weird and beautiful woman. 

My best mate (4EVA IDST) Danni - Danni is the most impressive human I have ever met. There. Is. Nothing. She. Can't. Do.
She's got a huge brain and a tiny body. Her capacity for more more more is incomparable. She yogas and sails and learns and laughs and makes ME laugh and she takes me along for the ride, even when I don't think I can do it. She just GETS me in a way that nobody else really does. She is resilient as fuck and I adore her. 

Steph - I can already hear Steph's eyes rolling from here. Her humility is frankly ridiculous. She is caring, supportive, and has no idea just how wonderful she is. Steph is HILARIOUS, she can make me laugh unlike no other, without ever bringing anyone else down. She grafts her ass off and has this unique way of understanding what you're saying, even if you're not saying it. My life got better when Steph walked into it.

Beebs - I loved Beebs before I'd even spoken to her. She always has time for the people who need her, even when she's going through epically crap times herself. She carries herself with the grace of a swan crossed with a ballerina and she is the most capable human being I've ever met. Her capacity for love is limitless and I'm so incredibly lucky to know her.


I've really enjoyed thinking about beauty and what it means to me. We don't often get the opportunity to step outside of things that just ARE.

Beebs and I are incredibly proud to be part of this campaign - You can find out more about  #Beautycomesinallshapesandsizes on Navabi's social media
