Beauty Bus...

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the Beauty Bus Foundation's first Beauty Drive. The Beauty Bus Foundation is a wonderful non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the home bound, chronically and terminally ill people and their primary caregivers by bringing beauty into their lives.

I have to say it was the best fund raising event I've ever been to. Guests indulged in a variety of beauty treatments at the Beauty Drive’s “stations”, which included professional make up applications, hair styling and manicures. It reminded me that the little things in life that bring you joy aren't really little at all. 

Getting your hair done, your make-up applied or your nails painted are all wonderful ways to feel beautiful and special but what's really amazing is the human connection that takes place. After the nail polish wears away and the make up is washed off what stays with you are the people. The small laughs over eye shadow colors, the stories told, sharing experiences and everyday moments with one another. These are the things that keep us happy and alive. I couldn't believe more in a foundation that brings these essential moments to people who need to be reminded of the beauty and love not only around them but in them.

  2. What a wonderful organization. It is important to recognize how much physical touch contributes to making that human connection you mentioned. As a society, we are not very accepting of physical contact, particularly with strangers. Things like manicures, having your hair done, massage...they bring a different layer to a new or old friendship.
