    I liked the Moebius Belt Chain, very unique.

    What makes me feel beautiful is my confidence, because it’s something gained by loving yourself on the inside as well as the outside. You could be the most beautiful person in the world but if your not confident you will never shine like someone who is truly happy with themselves as a whole. And not everyone is born with it, it’s just like a muscle, sometimes you have to work it. But the more you work it, the happier you will be with the results.

    Thank You Cassey, all your work with this blog and your videos helped me a lot. After 4 years of trial and error I’m FINALLY seeing results. Your workouts are like a tool to help me shape my mind and body. <3 <3 Greatly appreciate everything you do.

  2. I also grew up around white people and didn’t even think of myself as Asian as a kid. (I was in LA) That’s interesting what you said above because now a lot of guys seem to have this Asian girl fetish…

  3. I know exactly what you mean about the whole asian parents thing.

  4. Cari, this touched me. Did u know that someone called me fat once? And I’ll never forget it because it hurt me to the core and killed my confidence. I’ll have to write about this at some point.

    sorry, I forgot to say, I would like to win the Capelet! Love you Cassy!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

    I feel beautiful after I do your cardeo and Pilates workouts. I love the way I look all ready and sweaty after a workout because it tells me that I worked hard and that I know my body is getting better and stronger. It feels great when my musclse are burning and I can see the beautiful definition in them as I go down for a jumping squat, or a split switch. I love the way my body has been looking lately, slim and muscly. Your workouts have helped boost my confidence especialy sence im in highschool and I need as much confidence as possible. im not just one of those thin boney girls. Im thin and muscular in a still feminen way. and I love it! Im no longer afraid to wear booty shorts and short shirts. Thank you soo much Cassy for helping me learn to love myself! <3

  7. Kate McElhare says:

    I love the Oura Bracelet. It fits my simplistic, yet edgy style. What makes me feel beautiful is my ability to be confidence, be calm, and be intelligent in every day life. I am a college student and the best part of my days are spent learning new things about the body and helping others. Beauty to me is exuding confidence in a humble way. Some people say losing weight makes them beautiful, but I am more of a wellness type of girl. I exercise and eat healthy in order to prolong my life and set examples for others. I do consider myself a mentor because I love working with children and I plan on making my career based upon the wellness of others.

    Being beautiful is being comfortable in one’s own skin. I recently turned 20 and looking back on my high school and junior high years, I was one of the few of my friends who remained true to myself and never let criticism affect my education or how I lived my life. I was constantly picked on for having strawberry-blonde hair and you know what, it makes me different and it makes me beautiful! I have never died it and never will. Growing up in a society where being thin and tan is “in”, I choose to walk to the beat of my own drum and continue to set new boundaries rather than conform to the old.

    I am smart. I am passionate. I am caring. And I am beautiful.

  8. I like Capelet Body Chain :).
    What makes me feel beautiful?
    It makes me feel very beautiful inside to see my family happy.
    It makes me feel relief because then day is not so bad.
    It makes me feel beautiful when I see my brothers smiling
    then I sleep good and I feel like I flying.

    To be healthy is very beautiful thing and to be loved to.
    When you are good to your body and your mind, your body will be grateful.

    When you feel beautiful inside, it can be seen on your face. <3

  9. Well Cass, being Natural makes me beautiful! When I say Natural I mean perm free since i was born:) yeah i was teased for having big ol braids in my hair and their were times I wanted to change the way I looked. instead ignore it and be you! Ha to be Healthy and free makes me the beautiful person I am today*I picked the Anchor
    Body Chain

    Thanks

    Sandra

  10. Hi!!!!! (^__^)

    LOVE the Oura Bracelet…All the jewellery is gorgeous..but I love the simplicity of the bracelet but still looks very beautiful.

    What makes me feel beautiful????…my husband <3

    I feel the most beautiful when even at my lowest point in the day…after stresses of work….my house…family.. when my husband put his arm around me and just gives me a look…and I know I look crap and feel bad but just his look makes me feel amazing. He knows when I need a boost and sometimes just out the blue he surprises me more..I love him so so much <3

  11. Lauren Pickering says:

    I liked the beautiful Oura Bracelet, actually I would have loved it if there was a button :D

    My Answer to “What makes me feel beautiful?” is simple. I feel gorgeous when people say I have beautiful eyes. They aren’t the most unique eyes ever seen but they are unique to me and I feel great when other people see that too. It also makes me feel great because it means that when they talk to me they look me straight in the eyes. It mean they are talking at me and not to me. That’s the true mark of someone who recognizes who you are. It’s true that it’s simple, but that’s all I really need, the eyes are after all the windows to the soul. :)

  12. i love the box body chain, i used to have a body chain yrs ago and lost it. didnt think id see them again. exercise and eating well makes me feel beautiful! simple. of course i have off days who doesnt! just got to get up and keep going!
    thanks for all the motivation x

  13. hello Cassey:) since i always find it dificult to chose i liked the Heira Body chain/`but i also love the one you’re wearing(she has amazing designs!!)
    ~what makes me feel beautiful:
    From time to time i always finds ways to make myself look more pretty as well as beautiful, this can be a home treatment,some nice makeup,a dress or high heels,a nice workout with sweat all over..but in the end all theese are the steps to be taken to reach beauty to the lenght that he eyes meet.I recently concluded that theese alone won’t make me feel beautiful as long as i don’t feel comfortable in my own body!So i feel beautiful ,when i feel good in my skin in any way:):)

    that’s all from me and thanks again for a wonderfull glam giveaway~kisses!!

  14. I really love the Boxed body chain ^^
    What makes me feel beautyful… Most of all my progress. Ive been on a quest to be the “me” I want to be for quite some time now, and seeing how far Ive come since I began seriously working at it makes me feel so proud of myself, and happy :)
    I feel at my best when Im running, feeling my heart pumping and my muscles burning, I cant help smiling, knowing that im a little bit closer each time ^^

  15. Eeek! I got so caught up with my response to your question, I forgot mention I absolutely LOVE the Caplet body chain that you were wearing!

    It looks absolutely gorgeous and hopefully I could pull it off somehow (especially after letting the thanksgiving feast(s) get to me) But thank you again for this giveaway :D :D

  16. During my childhood, I never felt beautiful. Through the years, I just crawled into my corner and sought comfort in the foods I ate, because that was the only thing that was constant in my life. I gained so much weight which only lead to further seclusion of myself with my food and books because that was all I needed. or so I thought.

    In high school, when I reached my peak weight, I remember looking in the mirror and being completely disgusted with myself. I felt fat with my thunder thighs, flabby arms and huge stomach, I felt ugly and absolutely horrific. But I had friends and family who accepted me for who I was and supported me in my endeavors.

    I realize now that although I needed to change how I looked physically, but most importantly I needed to change how I felt about myself as a person. My confidence and self consciousness was at an all time low. But going to college changed all of that.

    At my university, I was surrounded by beautiful people with drive and confidence beyond any I have witnessed. I became motivated to change myself, with my physical attributes first. I knew better than taking the easy way, so I embarked on the tough route. After 2 years of eating healthy (and exercising when I could), I lost 30 pounds. For the first time I felt better about myself.

    From then on, I needed to change my mindset. I gradually put myself in positions where I needed to be confident and comfortable with myself. For example, in leadership positions or mentorship, I wanted my own mentees to understand their own self-worth, how could I preach what I don’t practice? This was the most mentally challenging change I knew I had to make about myself. With time, I became comfortable with myself, and I learned to love myself more and more each day.

    Yes, it is easier to criticize myself but being positive and being in control of my body and my mind has been priceless and kept me humble instead of flaunting and being haughty. Although it took years to find my inner beauty, I have undergone the transformation from awkward to awesome! (or at least I’m still trying to).

    I feel beautiful knowing my happiness with myself as a person, as a girl, as a woman in this society. I feel beautiful when I am able to contribute back to my community through my actions and devoting my skills to give back to those less fortunate than me. I feel beautiful when I know I am not perfect, but I can try to BE and DO the best I possibly could.

    All of this would not have been possible without my unwavering support of my family/friends and all of the people I have met who have pulled me out of my corner. THEY made me feel loved and beautiful, and without them I would not be where I am today.

    Thank you for reminding us of our beauty with each blog and video you post! When I read/watch your videos, I find great encouragement and positive energy that I apply to my own life on a daily basis. I look forward to seeing your entries :)

  17. I like the “Heira” body chain. These chains are amazing, they definitely fit my style.

    What makes me feel most beautiful is being able to completely express myself and be accepted for it. I live with three very pretty girls, but my style and personality are different from all of them. We are all friends, but sometimes I feel like I can’t act or do or look like I want and it’s hard to be boxed in that way and I get self-conscious because their personalities are more overpowering than mine. I have friends I met outside of this group who have personalities and styles that are very similar to mine. Being around them and laughing and talking about things that are important to us makes me feel incredible and I think that radiates outward.

  18. Heira – Body Chain, absolutely stunning, and would look great with multiple clothing pieces!

    What make me feel beautiful is my individuality! I love the fact that I’m different both inside & out. There are so many people out there who want to be someone else, but why would you when you can be the wonderful, fantastic, beautiful Y-O-U! Staying true to yourself is extremely beautiful in my eyes, and also very inspiring. If you can overcome all of these “social standards” out there, then you can reach out on your own – do what you want, be who you want, and have a great, happy life, all while feeling great about yourself instead of insecure about not being like someone else.

    Everyone is beautiful in their own way!! :) xox.

  19. I “liked” the Capelet body chain. So beautiful! :)
    What makes me feel beautiful is my friends and family who help me through tough times. Whenever I felt down about how I looked, whenever I compared myself to other girls and thought “Wow! her thighs are like perfect, I wish my thighs looked like that” or “Her hair is so beautiful, why can’t my hair be like that” whenever I thought these negative thoughts my friends and family were the ones who made me look on the brighter side. I began to look on the positive things and felt more confident which made me feel beautiful. I can walk down the halls with my head held high and actually feel good about myself. To me a great mind and personality is everything. :)

  20. i am beautiful for many reasons. i have a great mind. i think differently than many people. i am happy with my mind, and also with my body. i don’t let anything that people say get to me. i believe that beauty (looks-wise) is in the eye of the beholder! well, i guess personality-wise it is too haha. i have a beautiful hair color that everyone compliments. i can pull off lipstick, i am great at applying makeup but i don’t feel like it’s necessary to make me look nice! i feel beautiful wearing anything. i feel happy and comfortable. beauty is never pain in my world because you can always find cute things in comfortable and cheap ways. i refuse to buy anything unless it’s perfect and in my price range. i have searched for years for the perfect shoes, the perfect velvet dress, the perfect rings… everything. never settle for less than what you want! all of these “dumb” material things don’t make you beautiful, but they help you stay happy sometimes when you need a little boost and every time you smile, someone thinks you look beautiful. i am at peace with my looks, my body, my personality, myself as a whole, and the world. and i believe that is what makes me beautiful. i hope everyone can feel that way in their lives.

  21. I love the capelet!

    I feel beautiful when I make a conscious decision to treat myself right. That includes:

    – Eating well
    – Exercise
    – Setting aside “me” time
    – Putting in the extra 2 minutes in the morning to comb my hair
    – Surrounding myself with talented supportive friends

    We ladies pour so much of our effort into other things (people, expectations, work, etc.) that we sometimes neglect ourselves. I think when we put in some time every now and then for self-cultivation the payoff is a radiant beauty.

  22. Can I please please win the Capelet body chain, it looks stunning! The thing that makes me feel beautiful is my friends – they always love and support me no matter what.

  23. Loving the Heira chain and loving to win it. lol. Also, I feel beautiful when I’m wearing sexy lingerie on, even if I’m wearing a baggy sweater and torn up jeans over it :-p

  24. What makes me beautiful?
    I am a confident woman (:

  25. I absolutely love the Heira Body Chain!

    What makes me feel beautiful is knowing that I can lend a hand to those in need and make a difference in someone’s life. I absolutely love volunteering. Outside of work, whenever time permits, I would spend my time giving back to the community (and working out of course). I would volunteer for events such as marathons, soup kitchens, food banks to making cards and spending time with the seniors at the convalescent homes. To me, feeling beautiful is touching another person’s heart in a positive way. Volunteering and giving back definitely makes me feel the beauty that no designer clothes or expensive make up can.

  26. Cassey’s just put this up on youtube looking radiant as always! http://youtu.be/H_fWu4wj0uI

  27. Thanks so much for posting this, I can’t wait!

  28. I’m a friend of Kallisti in NY, I can’t enter since I’m not on facebook but just came to support this awesome contest. Yeah!

  29. I already have capelet II but would love to win heira :)

    Beautiful is waking up to a perfect sunrise.

  30. I wish wish wish that gorgeous Sling will be mine:) I love it:) The color is sooo cool and I can see myself wearing it with miniskirt or nice simple dress…It is so edgy!

    What makes me feel really beautiful? I feel like that when I am in HARMONY! That means: When I workout a lot, eat clean, when I have nice skin, when I am reaching high goals, trying new things, when I am inspiration for somebody and when I am surrounded with my friends (so I feel that I am beloved).
    I also feel great when I get new friend – for me that means that I am reliable and lovely person. And I feel really awesome cuz I have good friendship with my sister Tanja<3.
    All that means a lot to me and if I feel beautiful I can be great person and a little sunshine.

  31. I chose the [Aves Charm Ring]. What makes me feel beautiful… I definitely would have to say it starts with a good night’s sleep; waking up with a calmness, an assuredness of who I am and what I am about. I feel beautiful when I feel empathy towards others, or compassion or when I’m laughing with a friend. It’s a feeling, an acceptance of who I am, who I was created to be, an excitement of what is ahead of me in my life. A confidence that comes from outside of me. Also, knowing that I am beautiful inside and out, the confidence I have gotten since I’ve decided to change & live a healthy, happy, active life and having persons to support me on this journey to greatness.

  32. I like the Capelet Body Chain!

    What makes me feel beautiful is the confidence I have in myself to try my best in what ever it is that i do, no matter how difficult the task may be.As well as taking care of my body, I’ve learned to love the shape I have it makes me who I’am and no one else.

  33. Hey there :)
    I picked the Capelet II Body Chain. Sooo original and pretty ! Fell in love instantly :P
    What makes me beautiful… other than how this jewellery would make me look like :P I say that what makes me beautiful is my recognition of all the luck I have in life. All my joy and happiness are recognizable in my beautiful blue eyes and my smile for which I often get compliment. Mostly, what makes everyone beautiful is in the eye of the person looking :P Especially if it’s you who’s looking in the mirror ;) The basic is showing yourself that you love yourself ! Treat yourself right and you’ll feel beautiful ;) Everyone deserve self love, we’re all unique!
    Lots of love xxx

  34. Mary Raupp says:

    I ‘liked’ the Moebius belt chain, because it looks SO versatile and can be hooked to any belt or blazer to instantly amp up and rock out any outfit! SO CHIC!

    What makes me feel beautiful is treating my body right. I’ve struggled with understanding my body image and that led me to abuse my body through various eating disorders. The way to TRULY feel beautiful is to RESPECT your body. When I respect my body, I select and eat foods that will make me proud hours later, when I have energy, alertness, and vigor for life. Out of respect for my body, I workout and focus on QUALITY over quantity. Visualizing the muscle groups, as well as my body utilizing the healthful foods I have invested in it makes me feel strong, smart, and beautiful. By eating right, I FEEL right! And you can do the math….yes, that makes me feel absolutely unstoppable, and gorgeous.
    Ladies, respect your body for its amazing capabilities, and if you put good in, you will get good out. Beauty, strength, and balance. <3

  35. Vanessa Anderson says:

    Well what makes me feel beautiful is is my personality and smile because I can always make somebodys day and I am a very giving person so I’m a easy to person to know thats why I feel I’m beautiful

  36. My husband makes me feel beautiful. On the days when my hair is greasy and I don’t have makeup on, and I’m not wearing a bra, and I just look like I got hit by a truck, he’ll tell me I’m “beautiful,” and I can’t help but believe him with the way he looks at me <3

  37. I liked the Kallisti – Eros II Multichain Ring. What makes you feel beautiful? Well, even though I will become a makeup artist next year, I’ve started to see myself in the mirror and love myself with or without makeup. The last two years have been tough emotionally and I learnt that respect and love come from within. It is a tough lesson to learn but I did learned it. Fortunately, today I can say I’m my own woman. Big kisses Cassey!!

    Capelet Body Chain.
    Being with the love of my life makes me feel beautiful, cuz when we’re together. I’m the only one in his world, he doesnt stare or even glance at any other girls. No matter how “not photo ready” I may look at times, he always reminds me he loves me for whats inside, and always has. It makes me feel special knowing that someone loves me that much. Thanks for the giveaway! xo

  39. ooops, i saw the Anchor was 285, not 258… sorry, i choose Capelet! :D

  40. P/S: I love the Capelet!

  41. Being myself makes me feel beautiful. When I don’t put on a mask or false bravado. When I am open and honest with myself and the people around me. When I wear clothes I enjoy for no other reason that because I feel comfortable in them. When I am doing things I am interested in.

  42. Naomi Sirait says:

    I would be very happy to get Pegasus Body Chain… what a lovely pieces!

    things that makes me beautiful is a happy feeling.
    every time I feel happy, I feels like my smile just getting bigger and bigger that I believe everyone is beautiful when they smile very sincere.
    and thats what I do.

  43. Thanks Xing!!! We are excited as well!!

  44. i like all of them in different ways, but having to go with one i choose the Anchor. i like the a bit rustic square piece in the back-centre that gently goes out with the chains enhancing the female body. beautiful!

    So the a to the q…. I feel beautiful when i am at peace with myself. I truly believe that inner beauty shines throughout our bodies. I feel beautiful when i have overcome something, reached a goal i have set for myself. That is the start position of also helping others, begin with yourself. This is also when most people around me will tell that i look beautiful. Fighting with my weight, health, abuse and self confidence for some years now has been tough and left many scars on my body and in my soul. But all these scars are experiences of life, making me proud of where i am today, yet humble because i know what i have gone through and overcome to reach there, i can’t take it for granted. The beauty of the thought when succeeding and just thinking how far i can go if i just allow myself, everything is possible.

    Thank you Cassey and the blogilates community. The humor, the support and all these different lives and stories makes it a nice “place” to be and get motivated.

  45. I dig the Oura multichain bracelet, I think it’s so different and funky.
    I have to say I feel beautiful when I’ve just come out of the shower. Somehow I just feel I look fresh and youthful.

  46. Heart Heira,

    Putting on a perfectly fitted dress and a high pair of red soled pumps.

  47. I love the anchor chain!
    I feel most beautiful when I am working out and becoming a much stronger woman! Doing POP Pilates help me ease my mind knowing I will be able to do great things with my 2 beautful kids in the coming years!

  48. I really like the Heira Body Chain.
    What makes me feel beautiful is my boyfriend, because he never stops telling me how much he loves me (even without makeup on).

  49. Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for all the super comments and for sharing your stories. Keep it up, I’m excited for the future winner!

    xoxo,
    Xing Xu
    Designer, Kallisti

  50. So exciting! Here’s to a great December for everyone.

    I liked the Capelet one!

    Looking back at where I was physically and mentally only a few months ago and then how far I’ve come since then is what makes me feel beautiful. Also knowing how much further I can go and how much healthier I can be makes me feel beautiful too!

  51. I really love the Anchor (which I know it outside the price requirements), and the Capulet 2. =)

    What makes me feel beautiful is literally KNOWING that God, my Creator, formed me in His image. Therefore, I am perfect just the way I am! Some days I don’t feel beautiful, but when I pause for a minute to reflect on that very idea that I was carefully planned out before I was born by a God who loves me, I really do feel beautiful inside and out. And it helps even more to be surrounded by people who know and love God all the same who can uplift me and make me feel whole. It really isn’t about what you look like or how an outfit looks on you or if you feel bloated today. It starts inside, with knowing your true identity.

    =)

  52. P.S. my choice is the Capelet.

    Thank you :)

  53. What makes me feel beautiful.

    What makes me feel beautiful is the fact that I am a 39 year old mother of a wonderful 3 year old boy who reminds me every day that life is a precious gift. It is the inspiration of working out 2 hours a day, and still having the energy to run and play as if I were a child again. It is the motivation that I feel when someone says, “hey, you look great, what’s your secret?”. It is the look that my husband gives me, not only because I am the mother of his child, but because he thinks I am beautiful inside and out. It is being there for a friend when she is going through hardship and making her laugh and smile. It is dancing. It is writing poetry. It is doing pilates. It is eating right and feeling great. What makes me feel beautiful? It is exercising not to run a marathon, but to train for my life in general…to be a healthy person for me, I am able to feel good in the inside and be a happier and loving person to the ones around me.

  54. how can i send you a video of me working out to blogilates?

  55. Capelet has such a classy design~! I love it!

    The time when I feel the most beautiful is probably when I focus more on my personal achievements rather than comparing myself to others. It not only keeps my self esteem and motivation high but it allows me to appreciate myself for who I am. But in a nutshell, I think that people, not just me, are the most beautiful when they are genuinely happy – not just with their outer appearance but with themselves inside as well. That is when all the smiles and a persons’ beauty are the truest and purest.

    I do apologize for the cheesiness XD

  56. I liked the capulet. It is so pretty and edgy at the same time, plus I love the name, makes me think of Romeo and Juliet :D

    What makes me fell beautiful? That’s easy. It’s not compliments or cute clothes (though they help :P). What makes me feel truly beautiful is dancing. I love to dance with all my heart. And nothing makes me feel more special than when I dance. If someone were to say I have bruised knees, I would be happier than if they commented my hair. Why? Because my bruised knees are a sign that I dance, and I love flaunting them. I dance mainly hip hop, but I have explored other styles. I found out on sunday that my dance teacher is considering putting me in the highest level hip hop dance class, which is invitation only. I have never felt more beautiful. Just the fact that she is even considering me makes me burst with hapiness. I’m eagerly waiting for her response, I have trouble concentrating because of it! I just want to become better and better at dancing. I’m 15, I’ve never had a proper boyfriend and I haven’t had my first kiss, but I don’t care. I don’t have time for that sort of thing, at least not within the next few years. I just wanna dance and dance and dance. Because it makes me so happy, confident, proud and beautiful. A few months ago I completely changed my eating and I now eat only healthy, I also started training cardio and strength. I wanted to make my body strong and healthy so that I could become better at dancing and so that I can keep dancing my whole life. I feel most beauiful when my hair is messy, I’m not wearing any makeup, I’m sweating and I’m wearing loose clothes because that is how I look when I dance and when I dance I feel beautiful. To sum it up, here is a lovely quote I found on pinterest which is basically my life:
    “dance enables you to loose yourself and find yourself at the same time”

  57. I love the Heira design!

    I feel beautiful when I overcome challenges or obstacles in my life, such as when I meet a certain fitness goal, volunteer for a great cause, complete a training course or experience life in a foreign country. All of these things boost my self-confidence, thereby making me feel beautiful! Beauty definitely comes from within! But of course, it helps to rock a wicked new pair of heels and to surround myself with my beautiful friends! :)

  58. I like the Aves ring,

    and what makes me feel beautiful? This is gonna sound not true but going to the gym or working out. I think sometimes it’s hard to make myself get up and go to the gym but after I actually go I just look at my body and look at my smile and that accomplishment makes me feel beautiful.

  59. I’m getting up from my mat dripping with sweat. I’ve just had an intense workout and a cool down stretch that made me want to light some candles and RELAX… Im up, my body is glistening, and im heading for the shower. In that moment I feel unstoppable & beautiful!

    (i liked the Heira body jewelry)

    Thanks!

  60. My favorite item is the Oura bracelet.

    Like most women, I’ve had my struggles with feeling beautiful. As a Korean-American growing up in a mostly white suburb (I’d say there were probably 3 Asians in my graduating class, including myself, of 323 students), there weren’t many women who looked like me that were considered “beautiful.” I never felt like I’d find a boyfriend in high school because the guys at that time gravitated towards the beautiful blondes and brunettes. I even had someone whom I considered to be a close friend tell me that he “didn’t like Asian chicks.” Now, this was back when having a boyfriend seemed like the most important thing in the whole world. These days, I realize that beauty really does come in all different shapes, sizes, colors–even though that sounds a bit cliched. What makes me feel beautiful is being in a relationship with someone I know really loves me for who I am. The effortless quality of our relationship makes me feel completely comfortable with myself!

  61. Kimberly Mahan says:

    I’m really digging on the capelet!

    And what makes me feel beautiful is when I wake up in the morning and step outside, that first breath of air I take just before my jog. When I look at the notes my friends and family leave me on the bathroom mirror just to inspire me. When I step out of my shell and be the someone I really am instead of being trapped in a box of insecurity that my eating disorder challenges me with every day. I feel most beautiful when I am me, a healthier, happier me. Simply me.

  62. Cristina H. says:

    I really like the Aves Charm Ring, love the dangling ring look.

    What makes me feel beautiful? I’ve had a hard time feeling happy all my life, so what makes me feel beautiful is when I’m happy. When I walk my dog and we run around the block and I can actually keep up with the little guy, that makes me happy. The calm peaceful feeling I get while reading makes me happy. When I finally understand a concept in class, I feel happy. I don’t know if this makes any sense, but it’s a feeling on the inside. With out looking in a mirror I feel beautiful, just feeling happy and content and relaxed and peaceful makes me feel beautiful.

  63. I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I love blogilates because I am always left drenched in sweat!

  64. Azslyn Cole says:

    Pegasus is the product i picked, Makeup makes me feel beautiful =}

  65. Hey cassey, I chose the pagases Body chain…absolutely lovely and edgy :)
    What makes me feel beautiful is the feeling I get after doing charity work. It’s just the rush of the good feeling after you did something of good morals and the fact that you helped someone make their day… It just makes me feel beautiful person overall, inside and out, and i just want to give myself a pat on the back…hehe. :)

  66. Erika Jansson says:

    Hi Cassey! Erika from Sweden here :) I just LOVE your workout-videos, you really make me push myself and for that I thank you!

    The body chaines are totally awesome?! Especially Capelet II!

    It’s tough question you’re asking.. When I grew up I had NO confidence at all, but I’ve met a lot of wonderful people who made me feel better about myself. And I guess that I feel most beautiful when I’m doing something that makes me proud. When I get an A on a paper, or after a really good workout, or when I train my dogs (I’m a total dog-freak :P) or something else that makes me feel good.
    I don’t usually wear make-up and such things, it doesn’t feel like me. But I love wearing neclesses and earings and fancy dresses when I go out or go to parties! And I think I would feel totally beautiful if I was wearing a body chain, and I would feel even more beautiful if I knew that you thought I deserved to win it!
    But I see that you’ve got a lot of people tryin’ to win it so I won’t get too upset if I don’t ;) Just keep up with the videos so I’ll keep working out and I’m happy!
    Thanks, xoxo Erika

  67. I liked the Caplet! It’s so pretty, never seen anything like it before :)

    I feel extra beautiful after a post-workout bath- especially if I’m having to dress up and head out with friends/family! The sense of accomplishment after completing an exercise, the natural blush on my cheeks, and the gratefulness for the love shown by my friends and family.. it gives me a sense of belonging, and I will be feeling beautiful no matter how the world defines beauty :)

  68. Gina Topley says:

    I liked the Sling! I feel beautiful when I take care of my body and myself.

  69. I loved the “Sling” body chain it looks so graceful =)

    what makes me feel beautiful is looking in the mirror after a workout. When the sweat is running down my (yet not so noitceable) abs I just feel cleaned out and sooo free <3 I adore that feeling and I just want the whole world to see that I just had a though workout and that my body is in the progress to be the most beautiful it can possibly be =)

  70. Elizabeth W. says:

    Hey Cassey,

    I really like the Capelet II body chain as well! I’ve never really seen body chains such as these, but they seem really trendy.

    What makes me feel beautiful? Hmmm….You don’t know how long I struggled to answer this question. I feel like a lot of the time I strip down and look in the mirror, and I just become unhappy with my reflection. Often I compare myself to others and think, Man, I wish I had legs like hers.

    To be honest, I still think this way, but I think I’m getting better. Now, what makes me feel beautiful is during the summer after I’ve just finished a workout, red-faced and dripping with sweat. Then I head out to the beach to cool off in the water, and I just feel so empowered. I love the summer because it becomes the time when makeup is not as necessary, because if you do wear makeup, it will just melt right off. I remind myself that no one is judging me, and I should just be who I really am.

    I really appreciate how much time you put in for us and all of your giveaways. You are such a generous person!

    Sincerely,
    Elizabeth

  71. I LOVE the capelet.

    There are many things that make me feel beautiful. Little things, like coming out of the shower, after a workout with friends, getting dolled up to go out or for holidays. All of those seem, so normal though. So, ordinary. Something more personal that makes me feel beautiful are my epicanthal folds. What?! you ask? Epicanthal folds are these little creases in the corner of my eyes. I’ll never be able to do the cat eye look with eyeliner, but that’s okay because my eyes are naturally cat like! I never really took notice to them until about a year ago, but I’ve learned to love them! They come from asian, native american decent. Both of my great grandmothers were full blood native american. It makes me different and I think beautiful<3

  72. Hey Cassey,
    I love the Capelet body chain, too! I’m a New Yorker, so I’m so excited that you’re supporting a NYC entrepreneur!

    This might sound funny, but I feel most beautiful whenever I pass someone during a road race, or whenever I crank up the resistance on my spin bike. For some reason I associate power and strength with beauty. Women are so afraid of kicking butt and being animals in the gym for fear of looking manly or something. However, in my opinion, any girl that can run a 1:42 half marathon is beautiful! :)

    Thanks again!
    -Lauren

  73. I liked the “Capelet”
    I feel the most beautiful when I am just being myself. I know it sounds really corny but I have had a lot of struggles with insecurites (like all women do I’m sure) and I used to try really hard to pretend I was someone I wasn’t. I was so afraid of anyone not liking me or not thinking I was “cool” enough, skinny enough, smart enough, good enough, whatever. After a really long time of trying to become someone I thought others wanted me to be I finally realized that being so worried that someone would see through the front I put up was what was actually making me so insecure. Since then I try to always just be myself and it has made me so much happier. Even if I workout or diet or do anything to improve myself its for me, not for anyone else. I am finally proud to be who I am and nothing else. Thats why being myself and truly myself, not pretending to be someone else, makes me feel beautiful.

  74. I really like the ‘Pegasus’. I also make jewelry but have not seen the body chains before… very interesting!!

    What makes me I feel beautiful… the answer is quit simple. I feel beautiful when I am loved. When my fathers gives me a big hug. When my brother tells me he misses me. When my husband looks at me in a certain way and I can see it in his eyes that I am loved by him in body mind and soul. That he loves me exactly as I am even if I do not have the perfect weight or body shape. True beauty is on the inside and, I believe, can only be felt if you truly love yourself first. Love what you see in the mirrow, anytime, anywhere… Love yourself, than others will also be able to truly love you and then you will feel forever beautiful. I am also loved by me… myself.

    I feel beautiful because I am loved.

  75. Sarina Evans says:

    I love this jewelry…so unique!! I chose capelet as my favorite.

    What makes me feel beautiful is the effort I put into looking beautiful, if that makes any sense. I feel my best when I’m getting ready to go out, doing my makeup and hair while dancing around my bathroom in my underwear. I also love the feeling after a workout, when I’m all sweaty and gross, but I can’t resist checking myself out in the mirror since all my muscles seem more defined. Knowing that I’m taking care of my body, and taking the time to make myself look good is when I feel and look my best!

  76. I love the Aves Charm Ring–I’m a huge ring fan and love the leaves–reminds me of fall/winter, seasons I don’t really get to experience anymore living in LA! (i’m from the east coast).

    What makes me feel beautiful is a memory that I have: Two summers ago I came home from school for about a week before I headed to LA for the summer. I see my family about 2-3 times a year; and my dad even less than that. I went over to his place to spend the day/night with him, and since he lives so close to the beach, I asked him if we could go for a run, something we had never done together before. The run itself was hard (at this point I had just gotten into working out again) and my father, a former navy seabee, hadn’t worked out in a while either. When we finally go to the beach, panting, sweating, on that hot June day, we sat on the sand together for a while and talked, and it was a conversation that changed the course of my life. It makes me feel beautiful because it was a moment we had together, a very special one. And when we ran back to his house, still panting, a little out of breath, we were pushing each other; and whenever I do come home now, we’ll drive to that same beach and run along it, like no time had passed between us at all.

  77. “A girl’s most beautiful outfit ever is Charisma, the prettiest accessory is Smile, and the best pair of heels is Confidence…”

    The exact formula for Beauty and I believe every woman should wear every day. Plus a just-so-cute Aves Charm Ring in silver… ;)

  78. The Capelet II is gorgeous!
    (Also, I am a total English nerd–at first, I thought it said “Capulet”. =P)

    I used to have a very hard time seeing how beautiful I am. I always found *something* wrong with myself. In high school, I used to wonder why I couldn’t be one of the gorgeous, tall, thin, athletic blondes that populated the hallways. I hated how I looked so much, that I would eat lunch away from other people. Afterwords, I would feel disgustingly fat, even though I wasn’t overweight at all.

    Many years and an eating disorder later, I have finally realized that I am beautiful! I feel the most beautiful right after I work out and am covered in sweat (Body Rock, I’m looking at you!). Practicing yoga and Body Rocking have not only allowed me to see amazing physical changes, but they have also filled me with a sense of inner peace, balance, and confidence. This, in turn, has helped me change my way of thinking about the world. Instead of wanting to hide from it, I love it, and want to be a part of it! And I know this show through: As one of my close friends once said to me, “Carolyn, you are the happiest person I know. I love how much you love life.”
    The best part is, it’s true. =D

  79. Hi Cassey!

    I liked the “Aves Charm Ring”

    I think that when you are confident about yourself, you feel the most beautiful.
    When I get up and go to the gym, running or do any other activities, afterwards I feel so happy that I did what I did and when I look myself from the mirror I just can’t stop smiling when I see my abs and look nice and toned. I also feel beautiful when I smile, because that one smile can make other people smile too!
    When i’m exercising I get so much more confident and I don’t even have to wear make-up to feel beautiful. So simply what makes me feel beautiful is the confidence that I get from training and being in good shape! And making other people happy just by simply being happy yourself makes me feel innerly beautiful!

  80. Teri Magistro says:

    I like the Capelet II, because it would go with absolutely everything I wear :)

    The things that make me feel beautiful, is when I have just come out of the shower, or just washed my make up off, and my boyfriend see’s me and just stares at me with a shy/cute look on his face. Its the look that a person gives someone when they like what they see. I also feel beautiful when I have just woken up, and my hair is a mess, but my skin is all soft and my face is clean. I feel beautiful when I am clean and natural, and feel just like me:)

    I also think that my personality makes me beautiful. I truly believe that beauty comes from within, and shines on the outside from the way you present yourself. I have a strong positive outlook on life, and I like to make other people happy :) Happiness makes me feel beautiful too :)

  81. I Liked the “Capelet” Body Chain!
    What makes me beautiful is is feeling my body. I mean like after working out, you can feel every muscle you worked and how good it makes you feel.
    This makes me happy and glowing from the inside.
    Feeling good and feeling loved makes someone truely beautiful :)

    I hope that makes sense, my english is not that perfect

    Greetings from Germany

  82. i love capelet and aves ring!

    what makes me feel beautiful:

    knowing that my husband and family and friends love me for who i am, helps me to feel beautiful all the time. they love me so much that it makes me happy and lucky to be who i am. being happy overall brings out the glow and happiness internally and externally.

  83. I like Capelet, the same you are wearing in the pic!

    Today, I decided that spending all my time studying, crying over bad grades despite all the effort is not a way to live. I don’t know about you, but I’m asian, and the chinese culture is really different than, let’s say, american’s culture. I feel a lot of pressure from my parents, and feel like a failure when I don’t achieve their standards, especially knowing how well all my cousins in China are doing (one is getting a job with Fox, another one is going into a really good university…you get the drill). Instead of focusing on myself, I decided to start volunteering at the hospital. I need to see something more than what’s in my little world. There is more to life than just ”being the best”. Helping others made me feel beautiful, much more than if I had gotten the best grade in chemistry or whatever. Seeing all the smiles from those people made me feel useful. I feel like I contributed to a better world. A more beautiful world.

  84. Sarah Lynn says:

    I loved, http://www.kallistifashion.com/anchor.html#

    Personally I still have issues thinking I’m beautiful and as silly as it sounds my fiance’s a big part of it. Just today we went to the mall and I was in a “nothing looks good” mood. He sat with me and walked through each shop at least three times until I started to try more stuff. Finally I started happening upon things that really spoke to me and things that worked for my body. I found stuff that showed off the good features of myself. So he’s really what makes me feel beautiful.

  85. cydney hawkes says:

    I’m super into the capletII. What makes me feel beautiful is kinda cliche, but it’s my first serious boyfriend. I was bullied a lot as a kid and didn’t really date at all during highschool, this guy made me feel like a million bucks, all the time and even after we broke up I still have more confidence than I could have ever imagined as an awkward kid. A second thing would be getting super girly and dressing up with the girls on a night out, nothing like dressing up and going dancing.

  86. Alexandrine says:

    I decided to like the Capelet.

    This is sort of a cliche type of beauty, but what i feel makes me beautiful is the bond i share with my boyfriend. I grew up without a dad, and when my mother married, he was an abusive person. I disconnected with the world because the world had turned grey for me. There was no more beauty in it, because i was never shown how to see it. But when i met my partner, my best friend and the love of my life, i could see nothing but colors. So i say what makes me beautiful is my capacity to have the courage to love after a tough past. I smile and embrace life! I am happy that i can finally tell myself i am beautiful!

  87. Hi! I love these chains they are so awesome! I really like the boxed chain.
    What makes me feel beauitful? I never really sat down and thought about it. I mean, I know there are a ton of things that make me feel beauitful, a new outfit, a sexy lip color, a fresh scent or waking up in the morning with clear skin. But, all of those things are just skin deep. Sure, they are all fun and part of being a girl but what really makes me feel beauitful are the people in my life who love me and find me beauitful no matter what. Especially my loving boyfriend of six years! I know that I don’t need fancy clothes or tons of makeup for him to think im beauitful. He makes me feel special on the inside and the outside. I never have to worry about waking up with my hair a mess or laying around in sweats cuz im feeling sick all day….he tells me I am cute like that and that there is nothing I could do to change that. Knowing that somone finds be beauitful even when I dont find my self beauitful means the world to me. It reminds me that I dont need to fit anyone’s standard of what beauitful should be. I am beauitful just the way I am (bruno mars reference, lol)……..oh and laughter makes me feel beauitful, everyone looks good with a smile :)

  88. Abi Woodard says:

    I liked the ‘Sling’ body chain. What makes me feel beautiful is feeling healthy. When I physically feel good I feel mentally good. And after that everything else just falls into place. :)

  89. Sarah Dang says:

    I liked the Capelet II. I would like it a hundreds time if FB allows.
    What makes me feel beautiful…wow thats tough. Well, theres a wholes series of feelings that makes me feel beautiful First, sweating makes me feel beautiful. Not to gross you out, i mean sweating during an intense exercising session. Gosh, i love sweat dropping down my hair, my face, my clothes. Then, that feeling you get when you step into that cold shower. Cold water, hot sweaty body, the ultimate testament to a sizzling physique! And finally, the act of peeling a banana and chopping up any fruit I can find and blending it with yoghurt for the best after-work-0ut smoothie. That filling sensation as that cold delicious smoothie travels down my throat. I can already feel the antioxidants and nutrients rejuvenating inside me.

    That is the feeling of beauty!!

  90. HI CASSEY!!! I love the Heira body chain so pretty!
    What makes me feel beautiful:
    All my life I was told down right that I was fat…I can remember doctor visits where my doctor would look down at me and tell me you are just too fat Cari…my sister once told me that nobody will ever marry a fat girl… a kid at school one time followed me home and taunted me the whole way calling me fatty,I was told by one of my “boyfriends” that I was too fat to be with. WOW that all hurt soo much and I will never forget any of that. When I started to loose all the weight I started to get compliments from people saying wow you look soo thin, wow you look so different but never did anyone tell me I was pretty. Until one day I was crying about the whole boyfriend thing (which i am doing right now as I write this) and my mom came in and asked what was wrong and I just lost it and told her even though I was finally “skinny” no one still wanted to date me…my mom told me that beauty is not something someone can tell you. You are beautiful is something you have see in yourself and realize why that makes you feel pretty or beautiful….I have never forgotten that…When I look in the mirror and see my so called “ugly” stretch marks as most would say I think they are pretty because they show a weight battle won…I look at the flab on my arms and say hey that is beautiful because that used to be all unhealthy fat and now its another beautiful battle scar of my weight loss journey….Beautiful is not a material possession that makes me feel beautiful but looking at my long hard journey to healthy is what makes me feel beautiful…every time I look in the mirror and see the curve in my waist I feel beautiful, when I see toned arms instead of unhealthy arms I feel beautiful, and most of all I feel beautiful when I sweat because its sweat and hard work that has made me believe that I am beautiful and lovable.

  91. MuniiTheLibyan:) says:

    Okay so im really excited about this, I really love the one that ur wearing, the capelet <3

    I've always been a person who loves beautiful things, and i still do, the only difference is that i've never appreciated inner beauty, i mean i've always known that what matters the most is whats inside, but i never
    really believed in that, i've always " judged a book by it's cover "
    i only felt pretty when i get flirtted with, or looked at ..and i really had low self-esteem whenever i see a girl who's (prettier than me).

    but then something major happened to me, that changed my whole life, i dunno if its the right place to talk about this, or if its even relevant, but i happen to be Libyan .. i dunno if u know about what we have been going through because of ghaddafi .. but my people have been killed and tortured by this monster, i heard stories from people who had lost the hope of living after what they've been through, it was 8 months of just hearing news about relatives, friends, dying cuz of this creature, those 8 months have really changed the way i see everything, i cant believe how i used to be sooo selfish an shallow, even the way i see men have changed :P.. i mean a "cute boy" to me
    is not a handsome one anymore, a "cute boy" to me now means a man who sacrificed his life and everything he had just to free his people from the unjustice that all Libyans were going through, i know i got a lil carried away, but i now really am thankful for everything that god gave me ..i remmember hating my eyes sooo much, i even
    remmeber crying cuz they were too small, boy was i stupid. now i love my eyes like crazy lol no really, every time i remember crying cuz of em, i think like what if i was blind?? i literally fall in love with my eyes every time i think about that. :P

    sorry for the long commenet, and for my "not so perfect" english, and thank you cassey thank u for everything.
    and thanks for my eyes cuz they abled me to see you lol

    and btw i dunno if u they can ship this to libya if i win, so ask around, cuz if u cant, dont pick me :P

  92. Sara Ahmed says:

    Its the very small things in life that make me feel beautiful. Waking up with a smile on my face, walking by a store and seeing my reflection grinning back at me. Its so hard with how difficult my life is at the moment. I feel so rushed that I never have alone time to just make myself feel better so when I wear a shirt that I like or something that matches my eyes, it just fills me with happiness, and I feel that I am more beautiful when I’m happy which rarely happens but I try, sometimes its just so hard but I refuse to give up. In the end its worth it because one day I know it will be worth it. I will beautiful when I’m free of the worlds trouble, when I’m relaxed enjoying an ice cream or just enjoying the weather. And I really do believe that at those moments when I’m free, I’m beautiful

    I liked the Capelet Body Chain. The way it embodies you, I feel like its protecting you from the world while making you stand out.

  93. Elizabeth Jean says:

    I liked the Capelet II Body Chain.

    For the longest time I thought the only thing that could make me feel beautiful was the love from another person. Recently, I discovered that you cannot depend on someone else to make you feel beautiful. I set out on my own quest to rediscover myself and learn to love the beautiful person that I am. During this phase, I realized that working out and taking care of my body makes me feel beautiful from the inside out. I feel like a million bucks after leaving the gym, even if I am red in the face and covered all over with sweat! I also feel lovely after drinking lots of water and exfoliating with coffee grounds. This daily ritual leaves my skin glowing and silky smooth.

    Rather than conforming to the media’s definition of “beauty,” I have found true beauty in my uniqueness, such as my freckles and the little gap between my teeth. There is something that makes us each unique, and that is beautiful in itself. <3

  94. I love the “oura” bracelet!

    What makes me feel beautiful is looking at all the beautiful people I have in my life. Friends, family members and colleagues in particular. Why this makes me feel beautiful is because i strongly believe a good person attracts other good people. The fact that I have so many great, kind, giving and sweet people in my life reflects back on my personality. And knowing that thats the kind of people I attract…..well, nothing could make me feel more beautiful or happy.

    Sorry this wasn’t fitness related!

  95. I absolutely love the Capelet.

    What makes me feel beautiful is taking care of myself by eating right and getting lots of exercise. I feel beautiful when I push myself that extra mile when I feel like giving up. Treating my body right is something I can do for ME.

  96. SUSAN UNDERWOOD says:

    Heiro, its sleek, sexy and defines the back muscles! Feeling beautiful is about feeling healthy, strong and the warmth of the sun building on your skin

  97. I love the “Cape” it was such a hard decision! ♥
    What makes me feel beautiful is the hard work, effort, and strength I have in myself. Almost everyday I work hard to obtain the strong me, and when I feel like I just can’t anymore, I think about my goals and I persevere. To me being influenced by others is a common thing; I try not to get sucked into the world of ED’s; it’s a hard thing to beat. I tell myself it’s not worth all the consequences and continue forward. It surprises me how much motivation I have to be happy and healthy, because I want nothing more than to be just that. In the end I know everything I have done and worked for, has paid off, to let me transform into a better “beautiful” me. ♥

  98. Jocelyn Hudon says:

    I liked the Eros Gold Two-Finger Chain! What makes me feel beautiful is the accomplished feeling I get after doing a class. Lately I’ve been doing tae cardio classes and I love the feeling when you feel like you cant take it anymore, but I surprise myself and finish the class. I feel so confident, energized, powerful, and healthy. I feel like a sexy, strong goddess. This is the time of the day when I feel the most beautiful.

  99. Ginger Tetreault says:

    Hi!
    I love the silver Cross II body chain. Gorgeous and unique.

    I feel most beautiful when I have taken time for myself whether its extra hair care, a massage and even a workout that has left me feeling fulfilled and energized. Take time for yourself, be in the moment and realize your unique self because IT IS beautiful but it takes time to see that in today’s fast paced society. ♥

  100. I love the caplet 2. What makes me feel beautiful? I feel beautiful when I am strong, and dripping with sweat after a great workout. That post workout euphoria makes me feel proud of myself, and confidence is beautiful.

  101. I liked the “boxed” one.
    All of those are so beautiful and creative. I’d never heard of body chains before.
    Often times I struggle with thinking that I am beautiful. I have gone through a lot with my parents separating twice before finally divorcing and being born with depression and diagnosed with an eating disorder my sophomore year in high school, but it has been a life long battle. I often look in the mirror and only see things that need to be improved. But I have been able to overcome so much with my depression and eating disorder and that is what truly makes me beautiful. I may always have a problem with how I look because that is just how my brain works but I will always push through it and never giving up and loving myself is what makes me beautiful. It is not about how toned I look or if I have fat in some places but who I am and how I treat myself.

Speak Your Mind
