I'm a big fan of Dove's real women campaigns so when I saw a link to their latest video being circulated on twitter, I was excited to watch it. In the video, a sketch artist draws two different images for each woman. The first drawing is created using her personal explanation of her own appearance and the second is taken from a stranger's description of the woman who they just met. The sketch artist can't see the women, he just draws their images based on the descriptions. It is eye opening to see end results, in all cases the women are much more critical of themselves, whereas they only comment on the positive and the beauty in the other women.

According to Dove's Real Beauty Sketches campaign, only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful! I am certainly guilty of criticizing myself, everything from my thighs, to my pale skin, my jaw and my ankles. So instead of focusing on the negatives, let's celebrate our outer and inner beauty!
I love my hair, my nose, my shoulders, my hands, my sense of humour and my creativity, just to name a few.
