Who doesn’t need a little extra beauty in their lives? Beautiful Now is a website that has a wonderful mission: to create a place for people to “discover, create, and share the most beautiful things happening in the world today.” Site content is organized into six genres: nature/science, arts/design, food/drink, travel, impact, and wellness. Site visitors can browse all of the beauty that the site has to offer by clicking the “discover” tab on the left-hand menu bar. The various articles appear as thumbnail images through which users can easily scroll and select items of interest. If site visitors register for a free account through the website, they can also share their own photos and comments on the site’s forum, as well as enter the website’s weekly photo competitions. (Visitors are still able to view forum content and previous competition winners without registering for an account.)
