Are there things you don’t like about yourself? Ha! We all have them don’t they, and most people would probably NEVER guess. I’m happy to partner with Ugly Dolls to celebrate weirdness! This is a sponsored post written by me. All opinions are my own.
Most people don’t know that I have never liked my feet! Yep, it’s true. It all started when I was in grade school and one of my sisters made fun of me saying that I had huge feet. She had tiny feet and would talk about how princesses all had tiny feet and how having small feet was considered beautiful. So…I stuffed my feet into shoes that were way too small for me all the way up until (gasp) college, when I began to have terrible trouble with bunions and foot pain in general. Isn’t it crazy how people’s comments can affect us?
My feet grew with each pregnancy. Isn’t that weird! I think maybe in my case it was because they were supposed to be bigger, and I stunted their growth by wearing shoes that were too small. Up until college, I wore a size 5 ½ shoe, and now I wear a gigantic (ha) 7 ½. Make way everyone; size 7 ½ feet are coming through!
It’s crazy that I let one person’s negative opinion about the size of my feet actually lead me to damage them! Let’s celebrate our differences with the Ugly Dolls Movie!
Ugly Dolls Movie
In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities. The endearingly unique residents of Uglyville occasionally look to the sky above the town, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.
Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there’s something – anything – on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville. Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what’s on the other side. They discover another world – Perfection – a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the “real” world to find the love of a child.
In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, the UglyDolls will confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most. UGLYDOLLS releases in theaters this Friday, May, 3.

What about you? Did you have things that you don’t like about yourself? Have you learned to embrace them? Truthfully, I still struggle with liking my feet. I hope this movie helps many to let go of those things when they are young!
