Every day we have a choice. We can let others dictate the way we see beautiful in ourselves and the world or we can see the beauty we inherently possess, do something to help someone else, make a person smile, lend a helping hand, change someone's world. We're committed to making this world a better place.

The purpose of this blog is to invite readers to see beautiful. See Beautiful is a lifestyle brand that creates more beautiful in the world by giving back to you.

See beautiful in yourself. See beautiful in others. Create more beautiful in the world.

Eastern Congo Giving Goes Full Circle to Create Beautiful

Each of our New Hope Spring Blue bags are individually handmade by Riziki, one of the four beautiful women living in Eastern Congo working with SHONA. Using Congolese fabrics and prints, this shoulder bag features a beautiful spring blue  with gorgeous pinks. Every purchase includes a brochure about the woman who crafted that item.

1 See Beautiful New Hope Spring Blue Bag = 1 month of school for a child living in Congo

You are creating more beautiful in the world when you give hope to a child who otherwise could not have attended school. See Beautiful has worked with the New Hope Center in Goma, DRC for two years. The work they do to empower children and their families is beautiful and our New Hope Collection is one more way to create beautiful in the world.

As you carry your New Hope bag around, you'll be reminded of the new hope you gave a child and the new hope you carry with you every moment of every day.  The New Hope Bag connects you to a child in the Congo who is now happily attending school thanks to the hope you extended her/his way. Additionally, the New Hope Bag connects you to the woman who hand-crafted this bag who you helped support with this purchase as well. 

Product Details:
- Full zipper closure at top
- Rectangular base
- Interior lining and outside pocket
- Width: 13"; Height: 10"; Base 4.74 x 9.25"
- Strap length 42 in.  (can be worn cross body)

Seemingly Microscopic

We cannot ignore the small. The whole of life - even the hard, sad, devastating - is made up of minute parts, and if this is missed, you miss the whole. There is a way to live the big of seeing beautiful in all things. It is this: to see beautiful in this one small thing. The moments will add up, so see beautiful in this moment.

On Seeing Beautiful

Seeing beautiful doesn't mean you float through a life of magic and perfection with unicorns as pets and fairy dust to spread to the world. Seeing beautiful can be really hard; in fact, when life hands you lemons it's even harder to seek beautiful.

Seeing beautiful where it seems there is none is an incredible act of strength. So thank you for seeing beautiful with us, because I know it isn't always easy. You are very strong. Perhaps much stronger than you think. Yes, much stronger than you think.
