Melissa Walker, a Chapel Hill native, has finished her Violet triology and onto new adventures. I can’t wait to see what comes next. I will miss reading about Violet’s life and her friends! I finally got a chance to read Violet in Private and loved it. If you have any interest in models, modeling, the glam life of a model and fashion – you have to check out a copy.
Melissa also blogs – a personal one and with readergirlz.com. Take a look and let us know what you think.

It’s a question that seems to be in our faces more and more everyday. I just watched a glimpse of a what happens to a teen model who is transformed with hair and makeup artists into a woman – then is computer enhanced into something “gorgeous”. The images presented to us in advertising campaigns really have an impact on the way people view their bodies, self-image and others. After reading Violet on the Runway by Melissa Walker and then seeing this film clip – it reconfirmed what I always have thought. You have to know your SELF and be true to your SELF. Beauty is in your spirit, your smile, your eyes, your laughter and thoughtfulness. Think about the most beautiful person you know – is the true beauty on the outside or the inside? What do you value most and what do you think that person values most? Several libraries are hosting workshops sponsored by Dove. Check out the videos – especially “Onslaught” – on this website called the Campaign for Real Beauty. What are your thoughts and observations?
