“The literary equivalent of a summer night, a good friend and a gin-and-tonic: Shannon is a deft writer; a natural storyteller with a wicked turn of phrase and frighteningly specific memory...”
My new favorite song from Colbie Caillat. But the glorious images rival the beauty of her voice.
Hi Shannon– Love this video. I think a wonderful challenge would be to go without make-up and Spanx for 30 days and write about your experience. It would take real courage to do it and would be the definition of going nude! Being really open and vulnerable– and talk about a body image statement and defying social expectations. Love from the UK.
Hi Laurie — I loooovvvveee the UK! I already did the challenge you’re talking about at the beach all week at Newport, no hair, make-up and definitely no Spanx. I spent most of my time in the sand or boogie boarding in the ocean so it was worth it. But didn’t blog about it. Might have to.Thanks so much for stopping by and I love getting comments. xo S
Wow. Wonderful and powerful. Thanks for sharing that video. A great message for our young daughters.(and us)
Hi Val — I absolutely fell in love with the bald woman. Her smile was stunning.
Oh, I love this! Brought a tear AND a smile to my face today. Beautiful.
You should definitely write about it. And take it further. Lx
I loved this song even more after I saw the video.
They all looked their very best when they smiled. No make-up, no “perfect hair,” just smiles. Cool video – thanks for sharing!
Hey Lynne — I particularly thought the bald woman looked stunning when she smiled and without her wig.
For me Sundays are no-make-up days. Even if I have to go to the grocery store. Sometimes it feels a little awkward (at the store) but never awkward when I want to spontaneously jump in the pool with the kids, or take a nap on the cream colored couch. Thanks for sharing this great video!
Carmen you sound like such a fun mommy! I spent a week at the beach with the girls and completely gave up on everything. You can’t really maintain hair and make-up when you’re boogie boarding.
