This video proves that we are our own worst critics. I truly believe that throughout the years we start to internalize the negative feedback that we receive about our physical beauty which in turn manifests its ugly head in how we view ourselves.
Instead of being super critical of ourselves and others, why don’t we commit to being more positive while appreciating our own and others unique beauty. I have plenty of flaws/imperfections but I own them and have to live with them. I commit to loving the skin that I am in!
Dove has some really great projects that they’ve conducted on our perceptions of beauty. If you haven’t already viewed this video, I hope that you enjoy.

She’s beautiful for sharing what many folks try to keep under wraps.
Step into who you are today too, no?
I really enjoyed the images for Dolce & Gabbana’s SS 2013 Collection for Vogue Brasil. As someone who has learned more during the last few years about Brazil’s rich Afro-Brazilian culture/history, I was excited to see the colorful themes and gorgeous natural hair models (especially the little one with the BIG gorgeous hair). Definitely looking forward to seeing more advertisements like this with a little more focus on the Afro-Brazilian beauties taking front center.
Brazil, specifically Salvador Bahia is on my list of places to go soon…here’s to making that happen :)
Enjoy these images!

The afro has not only made a comeback with everyday women, but also in many 2012 fashion and beauty editorials. Here’s hoping there’s more to come in 2013.
