A couple weeks ago, I had to learn this lesson the hard way, and I only started with knowing my worth… I was approached by a company that I love, to be a hair model for them.  I was absolutely excited.  I don’t often get to ask to do these things.  Now I’m pretty awesome and cute, but I have some blogger friends who are even more awesome.  So the fact that I’m even being considered sent me over the moon!  Anyway, when I initially inquired about the details of the shoot (Read: Model Contract), I kind of grazed over the “are we being paid” part?  The answer however was, “I don’t think so but I’ll email you all the details.” Let’s fast forward to a week later… We are a few days out from the fitting, and people have gone shopping for clothes for all the models.  I ask again…

I’ve come to realize that for many people, keeping up with today’s fashions standard or standard for beauty/body is almost impossible!!  You must be deathly skinny or tall…. or long-haired, or whatever.  Unfortunately, I’m just barely make the “cut”, only because my hair is long.  Yet, because its natural and hardly ever straight, I am usually lumped back at square one!  I’m short (5’2.5″, and you will give me my 1/2 inch lol) and I am considered plus-sized/thick/curvy (my personal preference). And to add to my lovely list,  I got pregnant in 2015, which I was more than happy about.  I’ll put my stats at the bottom to give you an idea of my shape and size. Be nice…I don’t share this info with anyone, and it took 12 years to share it with my husband, and we’ve been married for 8! So, pre-pregnancy, I can honestly say I had body…

Man, has it be a while since I’ve done a post, but my goal is not to be so distant this year! YAY ME!!! *insert round of applause here* Lol!! But, today I come bearing a gift.
