I wanted to post a note to say THANK YOU for all the support and loving energy. My mom and I just returned from New York City where I participated in the Best of You photo shoot with Sally Hansen and Glamour Magazine.
It was an amazing experience. It was an amazing experience to share with my mom too.
We met the three other winners, all who are doing amazing things for the world. Rebecca Stanley, Keela Dates and Rachel Doyle are beautiful women and I hope you follow their stories as well.
Check out the organizations these three women started:
All four of us are founders, which was very special to me. I loved being to share the ups and downs of starting something from nothing, funding, insurance, sponsorship, support, volunteers and inspiration.
Everyone met on Wednesday morning for breakfast. It was so sweet to get to know the Glamour reps and the other winners. From there, Glamour sent the four winners to Townhouse Spa. We were pampered for the day! It was so sweet! If you’re ever in the mood for great service in Midtown, Manhattan, please check them out.
Wednesday night, we all headed down to a restaurant called Rouge et Blanc in SoHo where a friend of mine is the chef. Such amazing food!
Thursday was the photo shoot! It was everything I dreamed it would be and more. My mom was able to come with me, which was a real treat. She was the only Super Mom on set!
I was put in a beautiful dress and we were pampered again! Nails, hair and make-up. We each got our own time in front of the camera with the photographer, Grace Huang.
Mom was able to come on the photo set with me! I was able to select my own music too! Grace was so easy to work with and I appreciated the love.
The Best of You contest was sponsored by Sally Hansen. In addition to meeting the Glamour staff, I met great folks from Sally Hansen. They had a beauty blogger – Beauty Sweet Spot - on hand to do interviews with the four winners. Sally Hansen also had a production crew and we did video interviews. It was a beautiful experience to stand in the spacious New York City studio looking at the Statue of Liberty.
That was pretty powerful. And I’ll always remember how I felt that day.
All four winners were also photographed together. That photo will be in the September issue of Glamour.
Thanks so much for all your support and love. I wanted you to see a few photos from the set!
All my best Super Girl Energy!
