Hello everyone! Today, I throwing out a different post for you guys. As you may know, I am very adamant about the role the fashion industry plays on us, women. It's difficult and cryptic to look at how society defines 'beautiful.' We've been told, starting at a young age, that to be considered 'beautiful' you must be a size two, have glowing skin, and be the perfect height. Yes, some people fit that narrow category- but those characteristics aren't the only defining factors of beauty. Slim, curvy, tall, short- what ever it may be, it is necessary that society changes it's harsh influence and starts promoting confidence and positive self-esteem.
The fashion industry's role is so predominant in this problem. It has taught us that sometimes it's okay to put people down if they don't fit the specific appearance of the models and celebrities in magazines. While I love high end magazines, it is unacceptable to not put someone on the cover due to their size. If I've said it once, I've said it a million times; fashion is fashion no matter the size. We, as girls, need to remember that we are here to build each other up, not tear each other down.
With that being said, I've picked out a few of my absolute favorite videos on confidence, self-esteem, and defining beauty. I've attached a lot of powerful videos, but I adore Dove's beauty campaign; they always create amazing videos.that remind us what is true beauty.

My name is Emma Engilman. The goal of my blog is to encourage self confidence and stray away from societies definition of "beauty." I refuse to retouch my appearance in Photoshop, so enjoy my flaws because they make me-- me!
