PSA: Just Say No…To Photoshopping!
What were you doing at the age of 14? I spent most of my time begging my Mom to drive me to the mall so I could hang out with my friends. I was lame, but at the age of 14 Julia Bluhm is taking on the fashion industry one signature at a time. Julia collected of 84,000 signatures from around the world and delivered a petition to Seventeen magazine forcing them to change their practices on photoshopping. (read the entire article here).
Let’s be honest we all have a little something, something we wish would go away. Photoshop makes it easy to erase our insecurities. Sometimes I think my thighs are a little thick, my arms may be a little flabby and sometimes I get a little double chin action in photos, but hey that’s me! I’m so honored to have been ask to team up with Feel More Better to help support their “Not Photoshopped” Campaign. I hope that through my blog I promote a positive body image. No I’m not a size 2 and yes there are parts of my body I wish I could change, but instead of photoshopping my problems away I vow to get outside, get active and sweat (yes sweat) it away! No girl should go hungry or be unhealty in the hopes of chasing a photshopped and often unachievable goal of beauty. We’re all beautiful no matter your size, shape or color.
Feel More Better has also invited 50 other bloggers (including my LA friends Queen of the Quarter Life Crisis, The Curvy Fashionista and Sydne Style) have also joined the “Not Photoshopped” campaign. You can view all the blogger rockin’ their tees on StyleCaster.com and you too can join in on the action! For any t-shirt purchased on Feel More Better.com, the organization will give a new book to an underprivileged girl.
