Disney's Frozen was a runaway hit this winter with kids and parents alike, and Disney has done something usually only reserved for classic movies—they are re-releasing it in theatres. But they aren't just re-releasing it, they're making it a sing-along! I know that every single one of my friends have the songs stuck in their heads immediately after seeing this movie, so now they can go back (with the kids, so they don't get jealous) and sing along with every song.
Neat, huh? So, we're still suffering through the polar vortex out here in Toronto, and since the sing-along Frozen is opening this Friday, January 31, you now have something to do with your kids this weekend that doesn't involve being outside for very long. Check your local theatre listings to see if it's playing near you.
Will you take your kids to see Frozen Sing-along this weekend?
Last year, when Forever Yours Lingerie in Vancouver, BC decided to start using gorgeous size-14 model Elly Mayday for their campaigns, they knew they were on to something. The shop's owner made a conscious decision to use the plus-sized model because of her gorgeous curves, thick thighs and full bust and bum. What she didn't expect was that Elly would find out that she has a rare form of ovarian cancer. But it didn't stop Elly from wanting to work, and with a bit of cajoling (the shop didn't want to tire the model out or abuse her while going through treatment), Forever Yours has continued to use Elly as their star model.
And the looks are nothing short of FANTASTIC.
First of all, Elly Mayday is a fox with or WITHOUT hair. Secondly, that sports bra looks AMAZING and third, kudos to a company actually taking time to try and do what's right by using different sized women to show their product. I'm not saying that a thin model or skinny woman is unattractive at all, but the fact that more and more companies are embracing actual differences shows me that fashion is changing.
And that's great news.
What do you think of Elly Mayday's shoot for Forever Yours in Vancouver?

It's interesting that we live in a world where photoshopping of celebrities still happens so frequently, but we don't always see how it has changed images. In the past few weeks, there has been an uproar about Lena Dunham being touched up in Vogue (although, at the end of the day, she was barely changed), and French band, Boggie, released the video for their song "Nouveau Parfum," where the lead singer is shown being photoshopped during the course of the video.
While all the effects in the video aren't solely photoshop (she did have makeup applied at some point during filming), it's interesting to see just how much they can do with computers and how much that has skewed our version of reality.
Pretty neat, huh? I like seeing stuff like this, because it's a healthy reminder that looks are almost always deceiving. I hope we can remember that when we see a woman on the cover of a magazine, she has often been photoshopped to within an inch of her life.
Very neat little video, don't you think?
What do you think about things like this that expose photoshop trickery?
