"I see beauty in people by connecting with them and learning about the things they love. When you understand what people truly have passions for your are able to find ways to bring value to the relationship. By taking the time to help those in need, we are able to create fellowship and adds value to one another. I have passion with extreme confidence, tenacity, and being an audacious woman, I believe, shows your beauty."

"Compassion shared with those
That seem not to care,
Arms of honor that reach around the world
To those in despair.

It is forever changing,
Definitions don’t compare,
Is it the flawless face of youth?
Or that endearing face of truth?

Look beyond the superficial,
For there’s more than meets the eye,
Find that which inspires you,
You’ll find beauty for your life."


Naghmeh Fatima. Owner/Designer of NILA BOLOUR

Beauty is defined through a person’s thoughts, their mindset, values and their beliefs. Beauty is recognized by the interpretation of passion in one’s words, and his or her actions. It’s truly about inner beauty. It is deeper than just the exterior. Beauty is rooted in one’s soul. And really, isn’t that more permanent after all?

"There is a thought that what is beautiful is also good. The depth of the word beauty goes beyond what we see as beautiful in form because what it is truly, is always defined through the experience of our heart, our mind and our soul."
