I am not going to pretend that I know what I wanted to say while writing this post. I will say, all day I ignored my iPhone alert telling me I had new goodies on my newsstand app. When I finally decided to open it, I was at my desk jamming to Kenny Lattimore. I was flipping through the pages anxiously with high expectancy to see myself. Several pages in, BOOM* there I was. Even though I’ve known since August the release was scheduled this month I was still in shock when I saw me smiling proudly on the page. It’s way too surreal.
My feature for Marie Claire made it in November’s Beauty Issue. My heart literally skipped several beats as I smiled and ranted on with all of my co-workers about my exciting news. I think for any blogger being featured in a MAJOR magazine is a dream. It’s even more exciting to be featured in a magazine that you’ve gotten issues of since you were a little girl, issues that were in your mother’s name (some of which still are) because you were too young to mail in subscriptions in your name.
I can say I am completely over the moon. I truly hope that God grants more amazing shoots such as this one in the near future. The team at Marie Claire is super friendly, beautiful and professional. I had a blast shooting. I quickly got over my fear and nervousness about shooting the moment I sparked up a conversation with the crew. The shoot took place in of course, San Francisco, CA on a slightly muggy, EARLY Saturday morning. I’ve included a few pictures below from my tiny little feature that’s a REALLY big deal to me. I hope that you all enjoy and hopefully you go pick up a copy of the latest issue that’s on stands this week.
Be Inspired. Be Encouraged. Be Blessed.
