Living my Childhood Dream...part time anyway

When I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up and become a 5'8 model with long luscious hair...just like every other 8 year old I knew. At that time in my life no one bothered to tell me that 5'2 was as high as I was going. Being very short I never really considered the possibility of fulfilling my childhood dream until about a year and a half ago.

#1. I love Italy but they have little to no desire for shorties like myself as far as modeling goes. 
#2. Majority of my modeling work happens when I go back to the states to visit.
#3. Modeling is a part time "hobby" of mine. I say hobby because it's not like I'm Naomi, Gisele, or Tyra making the big bucks. 
#4. With all that being said, I still love modeling. A photographer once asked me why I wanted to model. My response was this..."Besides it being a childhood dream of mine, and liking it as a job, it combines all the things I love. When you mix together photography, creativeness, fashion & design, along with a model, I see it as a piece of art."

And now for some pictures from my portfolio...

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
