Amazing Moments with Dove

June 24, 2016 Williamsburg, VA, USA

Sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all... especially on a wedding day! The first look. The first kiss. The first button fastened on the gown. The first step down the aisle. But for me, it was the first moment I looked at myself in the mirror. Every bit of emotion washed over me then. It was the first time that I really felt elegant, and it was at my dream Christmas wedding...

Introduced by Simply Stylist, I'm excited to be working with Dove on their Amazing Moments campaign. From the same gurus behind the brilliant Dove campaign for Real Beauty, the Amazing Moments campaign is another initiative by Dove to get our story-loving hearts swooning and embracing our own amazing moments.

And when the story of Louisa and Rob popped up in my newsfeed, the words "like most girls, she grew up with a poster of the lead singer in a boy band above her bed" made me pause. While I admit I wasn't completely hardcore like some of my friends who literally had posters, book covers, and binders plastered in wishful full-color romance, I did have that girlish crush on a certain Casper the Ghost Canadian actor circa 1995... because I was, after all, a living and breathing pre-teen who had a soft spot for unfortunate fictional characters and the dreamy eyes in which that character beheld. And just like so, Dove’s video instantly transported me back to the 90’s media kingdom of Tiger Beat and Bop.

Like all modern-day heroines, Louisa grew up and moved onto real-life romance… except one day, her real-life romance became every teenager’s dream when that former boy band singer came into her life. Like right out of the movies, boy-meets-girl kind of stuff. Really.

So when the days passed and turned into months, there was no other question but THE question. Her amazing moment was about to happen, and she was the one who would be orchestrating it. With a ring in hand and Dove Clinical Protection literally arming her in confidence, Louisa and Rob’s happily ever after turned to the next chapter of their lives.

Because Dove Clinical Protection provides undeniable wetness protection and contains ¼ moisturizers for softer, smoother skin, your own amazing moments can stay amazing. So whether you’re like Louisa proposing to the love of her life, or like me who experienced bridal elegance for the first time, we would love to have you join us in sharing your own Amazing Moment with each other -- on social media and beyond!

And if you didn’t watch it above, visit to view the film because it's a must-watch. Especially if you love to get your heartstrings plucked like I do.
