New beginnings!!



Hey guys!

Thought I'd share everything that's been happening in my life in the past few days! A lot has happened in the past week! I am happy to announce that I will now be a contributing writer for the awesome Full Figured Magazine  so be sure to look for my work in the July issue!This magazine is new, as it has only published it's second issue, and is available online. It's a wonderful magazine, run by some wonderful people and I couldn't be happier to be a part of such a wonderful team (wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! lol). I know they are going to take off and I'm ready for the ride!

Also, a friend of mine, Angelica Jones, hit me up about an awesome opportunity to have a commercial shot about my BLOG! I couldn't believe it!! There's a company called fMainstream run by Jason Smikle, a fellow Chicagoan. The site is a place where artists', entrepeneurs', bloggers', etc. talent's and profiles are showcased. I think it's a wonderful idea and site. We've got to support each other, right?!

So on to the commercial, right! Well, I get to have a commercial shot this weekend and I can bring as many "fans" as I want, to come out and support me and my blog. The commercial will be set to air by September of this year at the latest. This is all a part of MTV's "I Got Fans" Summer Commercial Campaign. I am so excited to have this opportunity and can't wait to see how everything turns out!!

I'm also excited to say that I will be attending a sneak peek of The Makeup Show Chicago which is going to be happening on Sunday, June 17th and Monday, June 18th. I got invited by my wonderful Plus Fashion Week team and I'm elated because I've never attended one of these shows. So be sure to stay tuned for updates about that!


Also, Plus Fashion Week has partnered with an awesome charity, Compass to Care. Compass to Care is a foundation that makes it their mission to schedule and pay for travel arrangements families require to seek the best cancer treatment for their child, ultimately eliminating the financial burden of travel expenses and giving each family for their child's cancer cure. Great cause, if I do say so myself!

Talk to you guys soon! Toodles (p.s. don't forget to enter the giveaway!)
