bella - edition 13

February 26, 2018

This month I want to do something different.
I want to encourage women to pay it forward.
Because that's exactly what one bella reader did when I caught up with her for coffee recently.
After telling me how great bella was, she gave me a book full of inspiring quotes from inspiring women.
“Pay it forward,” she said with a smile.
When she was a lot younger (and she's not old) a woman said kind things about her and encouraged her to pay it forward and ever since she has.
Which is where I (and now you) come in.
When someone does something remarkably kind and selfless it creates a chain reaction.
If you Google 'pay it forward' it says: Respond to a person's kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else.
It could be as simple as smiling to a stranger or helping someone carry their groceries to the car.

Or it could be above and beyond that.
After all, why should we limit kindness?
In the spirit of paying it forward, here are three of my favourite quotes from the book I was given.
A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done. Marge Piercy

A woman is like a tea bag — you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.

Eleanor Roosevelt
A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman.

But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.
Melinda Gates
Also if you were wondering what's going on with our cover, turn to pages 38 and 39 and check out our behind the scenes for a photo shoot feature, with tutorials on hair and makeup.

And a sneak preview of next issue's amazing fashion photo shoot (on pages 6 and 7).
We'll also be running a bella Fashion Competition at the Echuca Cup race meeting in March.

You could win a two-night package for you and five friends at Tindarra Resort.

Details on page 13.
We also introduce you to LORDS Fashions, Bellus Hair Studio and Travel Counsellors.

And a whole lot more.
