Y'all I am beyond excited to finally be able to tell you that I am on the September 2015 Cover of Redbook Magazine! I was one of 6 winners of the Real Woman, Real Style Awards contest sponsored by Dove! Eeeehhhhh!!! I can barely contain my joy. It's been especially hard not to reveal it to you guys, but I was sworn to secrecy by Redbook until the big reveal.
In June I was whisked away to NYC for a huge photo shoot with Stylist, Hair Stylist, Make-up Artist and photographer. I felt like a queen. I mean I don't know if I will ever have someone to put lotion on my legs before I go on a set again, so I will relish in the little things. I had so much fun meeting the other beautiful Ladies who also won (Nikki, Cassie, Psyche, Christine, and Marija).
Much love to Redbook for taking the chance of putting 6 real women, who have real style and budgets to work with! It's so refreshing to see a magazine display women of all colors, shapes and sizes on the cover of their magazine! Here a a few of my behind the scene shots mixed in with a few of my magazine features!
Thank you to everyone for all of your love, support, kind words and excitement as I have been on this journey! I love you all more than you know! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever, ever think this was possible! Please buy this magazine! Let's show everyone that real everyday women with regular bodies and lives can be just as inspirational as a celebrity!
