JENNIFER LAWRENCE ON BODY IMAGE
As a strong supporter for change when it comes to body image and the way women are both seen and portrayed within the media, it’s always refreshing to see young actresses sharing their views on the subject.
Jennifer Lawrence has always been pretty outspoken when it’s come to comments about her looks and the fact that she’s been told to “lose weight or be fired” when it came to getting roles. It’s unfortunate how much this constant need to be skinny is perpetuated by the media and how many young and upcoming talents allow this to dictate their choices. It’s one thing to be naturally thin, but to starve yourself to get to the “ideal” body weight (whatever that means)…I don’t think I’ll ever understand or support it.
Rather than summarize Jennifer’s comments, take a look at the video above. As a fellow lover of food (healthy and gross alike), thanks Jennifer for not wanting to miss out on the savory things in life.

The “sup…you looking at me?” face. Fall is upon us but that should stop you from sporting a bright lip.

I could say more but I’ll just let this image speak for itself. Absolutely stunning.
HAIRSTYLE TIPS AND TRICKS
For anyone in search of interesting ways to achieve wavy hair or a braided updo, look no further than this video from She Lets Her Hair Down.
Featured is a unique spin on the wave utilizing simple strips of cloth, hairspray, a little heat, and some air drying. As you can see from the last shot in the video, the finished looks are quite stunning.
Looks like I have a few new hairstyles to attempt this summer.

REFLECTIONS ON BEAUTY:
DOVE’S “REAL BEAUTY SKETCHES”
Dove has yet again created a truly moving video showcasing how warped people perceive themselves on a physical level. With the help of a forensic artist, the sketches created display such a dramatic difference between the women’s descriptions of themselves and the descriptions provided from people they met. The first sketch was a more brutal depiction highlighting the minor flaws we are all guilty of obsessing over while the second sketches were not only more accurate, but also made some of the women realize their flaws are not as prominent as they seem.
I continuously applaud Dove for continuing their campaign towards changing the perception of beauty in our society and look forward to seeing what they release next.
