The Books

The Operation Beautiful movement has inspired two books, one for adult women and another for tween/young teen girls.


Operation Beautiful: Transforming the Way You See Yourself One Post-It Note at a Time  {FOR OLDER TEENS AND ADULTS}


An empowering book with photos, notes, and true stories about the underground campaign to recognize the true beauty within every woman.   Packed with tips on how to lead a healthier, happier, and more balanced life by changing the way you see, not the way you see.  Available now at AmazonBarnes and NobleBorders, and Indie Bound.

Operation Beautiful: One Note at a Time

 The follow-up to the original Operation Beautiful book, Operation Beautiful For Best Friends is targeted to 8 – 14 year old girls and addresses topics such as body image, bullying, cliques, puberty, relationships, community service, and gossiping, all via the message of Operation Beautiful Post-Its that were written by tween and teen girls, as well as adults reflecting on their own teen experiences.

Tired of watching women pick themselves apart in front of the mirror, blogger Caitlin Boyle scribbled a note on a Post-it: “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!” and slapped it on the mirror of a public bathroom. With one small act, she kick-started a movement. In a matter of days, women and young girls were undertaking their own feats of resistance, posting uplifting notes on gym lockers, diet shakes in supermarkets, weight-loss guides in bookstores, and anywhere else a nagging voice of self-criticism might lurk.
