    I love these Dove campaigns. I’m already seeing it with my eight year old, and how she comments on wanting to go on a diet. And she isn’t even remotely overweight. It scares me. I don’t even think I knew the word diet until I was sixteen. It’s a challenge as a parent to have to fight against the images of what “beauty” is considered today.

    I think the best one shows how they change the look of a model from a magazine shoot.

    That is a great commercial. I love it.

    Can I just lock my daughters in their rooms until they’re eighteen? :chair:

    I’ve actually used some of the mailers from Dove to talk about beauty and self-esteem with the girls. It’s a great starting point.

    Thanks for sharing the vid, Angie!

    Yes I do. The adverts are fab.

    Not a huge fan of the products (but that’s because I make handmade soap and body products from scratch) but am a HUGE fan of this new campaign of theirs. I think it is really good. I liked the one that showed a model before they dolled her all up to look fantasy gorgeous in the photo. It showed how they are just “real” people.

    I love their products and their approach to marketing. These new ads are innovative and what I want to see. I remember looking in the mirror when I was a teenager and hating what was looking back at me because it didn’t fit the mold. I really wish more companies would take this approach that real is better.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
