My Thoughts on Dove’s “Real Beauty” Sketch Video

Have you seen Dove's latest Campaign for Real Beauty video?  If not, go take a look. First of all, I know there are 1,000,001 posts out there already about Dove's Real Beauty campaign, both positive and negative.  After watching their most recent video, I had a thought that I haven't seen addressed yet. The entire thing hinges on how other people see us.  It's all about how you critique yourself and how other people, especially people who know and love you, see you much more positively.  I feel as though I'm being told that what other people think of me matters more than ...

So Lazy we Lost an Hour Sunday

Anybody live in an area that doesn’t observe Daylight Savings time?  Who hates it?  Who loves it? Who forgot until I brought it up? I love it.  My birthday always falls right around the switch.  Last year, we turned our clocks back the day of my 21st birthday.  Of course, I went out that night at midnight, so I really needed that extra hour.  Daylight Savings just reminds me of anticipating Christmas as a kid.  I love when it gets dark early, and you can light candles or fires.  (For those times when it’s just not appropriate to light a butt plug ...

After hitting my all-time pageviews high last week, the pressure is on!  I actually went through my Bloglovin' feed this week with the express purpose of putting together a solid Lazy Sunday post.  Last night I celebrated two friends' birthdays just a little too hard, so I'm extra glad I prepared ahead of time.  (Related: I should seriously consider becoming a Wendy's shareholder.) & I'm really excited for Shannyn's eBook on being a Rockstar Blogger!  If you're not yet familiar with Shannyn, she's the mind behind Frugal Beautiful, one of my favorite blogs.  She's also a successful small-business owner and wants to share ...

Lazy Monsoon Sunday

It's been another working Sunday in the Marvelous Darling household.  For me, anyway - boyfriend's been home, rats have all been home (that's right - all - more on that soon).  It was a super slow day at the shop, but I did get to work with a coworker I don't see much so catching up was lots of fun! Without further ado... & I know this will shock you, but Sarah Von of Yes & Yes wrote another post about travel.  (If you don't know Sarah, shame on you.  But she travels like a BAMF.) & Kira of Her New Leaf made a beautiful freebie wallpaper ...
