Elf4Health: True Beauty

Hi Friends!

This weekend, Round 1 of Elf4Health is coming to a close. I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome the first two weeks have been! This challenge has more participants than Elle or I ever dreamed it would when we were putting it together, and every single one of them is amazing! I’ve had such a great time watching everyone rock challenges like going meatless for the day, trying new workouts, tracking their fiber, donating to Goodwill and sharing healthy snacks…but i have to say, yesterday’s challenge to go makeup-free absolutely blew me away.

In fact, it moved me almost to tears at times throughout the day.

Just look at all of these BEAUTIFUL smiling faces:

Aren’t they gorgeous?! Every.single.one.of.them! I’m SO PROUD of all of my elves that went makeup-free yesterday! I know it was a big step for a lot of you and I’m so happy you took a risk and let your true beauty shine!

I got so happy reading some of the FB posts and tweets throughout the day about how they felt after going makeup-free. Here’s just a few:

See what I mean? If those posts don’t inspire you, then I don’t know what will! HUGE thank you to every single elf that participated in Round 1. Can’t wait to kick off Round 2 with almost 1,000 elves next week. If you want to join us, sign up by 11:59 PM Saturday Dec 8th. CLICK HERE to sign up.

Stay beautiful!
