This video, Dove Real Beauty Sketches, is a must-see for any female from 4-104. The video shows how women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. We all need to work on loving ourselves more.
I’ve had Girls on the brain lately. Catherine introduced me to the show early in its first season and I’ve been a loyal viewer since. I don’t love, or even really like, the show, but I feel compelled to watch. I found the first season to be an accurate portrayal of our strange generation. It was honest, raw, and realistic- it covered getting cut off, finding a job, moving into your first apartment, fighting with friends, starting relationships, trying to make ends meet, etc. The second season was quite strange and less realistic, but, for some reason, I still tuned in every Sunday night. I suppose I like the unglossy, realistic view of post-college life that so few shows offer.
It appears Deborah Lippmann is a fan of the show as well. She developed a seriously covetable collection of Girls-inspired nail polish. There are 4 shades: Hannah is “hapless hunter green,” Marnie is “prim and proper pink,” Jessa is “bohemian burgandy,” and Shoshanna is “virtuous and vivid violet.” I’m thrilled that my two favorite shades correspond with the characters I think I’m a mix of: Marnie and Shoshanna. Who would you be?
I’ve caught some kind of cold or flu, so I’ve spent the day hibernating. I’ve been…
- Watching the highlights of Lance Armstrong’s interview with Oprah
- Daydreaming about the 29 hot destinations to visit in 2013
- Learning how to be happier
- Reading the comments on Mackenzie’s post listing the best spots in NYC (side note: Mackenzie is from our hometown!)
- And, of course, watching lots and lots of crime shows (The First 48 is my newest obsession)
What are you guys up to this weekend? Hope you stay happy and healthy!
