City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

I’m not one for chick flicks and romance novels or bouquets of flowers and love poems. But sit me in front of an episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition or show me a story of sisterly love and I’ll be bawling my eyes out.

philosophy, one of my favorite beauty brands, which has also provided me with what is now one of my favorite inspirational quotes, (“Listen to the beat of your heart, which dances to the rhythm of your life’s song,” circa their 2007 holiday collection) has now brought us philosophygiveslove.com, a site full of touching love stories about everyone from your dog Spot to your soul mate.

philosophy wants to share the love with BN as well! That’s why for the next two weeks we’d like you to submit your stories of unconditional love right on the philosophy gives love site for a chance to win a basket featuring the unconditional Love fragrance, body lotion, shower gel and t-shirt valued at over $100. It’s simple, just log onto http://www.philosophygiveslove.com and click on the “love stories” tab, from there share your story with us and be sure to title it “BeautyNewsNYC” so that we can keep track. We’ll then choose the 5 most touching stories to win the gift baskets, all submissions must be received by Thursday April 2nd to be eligible.

Take some time to browse the site as well, for inspiration or just some touching stories that will warm even the coldest of hearts. So, though it may seem juvenile and hippie-like to claim that all you need is love, well…sometimes it really is all you need.
