On Sunday, my daughter participated in a modeling photoshoot for Blackhairmedia.com. It was for their 2010-2011 Holiday Calendar. She was the youngest model (I had to sign a release form) and she totally rocked it! What an experience! We got to the shoot location (a really nice Loft in midtown Atlanta) at 9:30 AM. When we got there, there had to be at at least 14 beautiful models on board (all shades, sizes, various hair textures), 2 photographers, 5 hairstylists (all from differenct locations including out of state), 1 wardrobe stylist, and 4 makeup artists.

Initially my daughter was to do 5 different scenes but some changes were made, due to one of the models not being a good fit for another scene. So that meant that my daughter was to replace that model and could only be in 4 scenes. Which is not a complaint by the way. In the beginning, when the company found her on her Model Mayhem site, they only wanted to use her for 1 scene only.  She was ecstatic when they decided to use her for more scenes.

The scenes in place were: Valentine's Day -  1 scene for natural hair models only; Christmas - 2 scenes within this segment; New Year's - 3 scenes within this segment; Mardi Gras - 1 scene; Football - 2 scenes within this segment.
Tune in later (14 days) to see which scenes she was actually in.

The day ended at 6:00 PM! It was long but worth it.

Here's a pic bit from one scene :

Makeup looks really light but it wasn't - the lighting was very bright and this pic was taken on a mobile device.

Some of the products used in each of model's hair were also given to them in a goody bag. I loved some of the gel like products used in my daughter's hair because it didn't make her hair feel oily or hard (used Curl-Gel-Les'c Curl Jealousy & Curls Souffle). Her hair was soft and easy to comb through. When they straightened her hair, it was bouncy and flowy like (used Carol's Daughter products). She loved eveything.

All of the models should have their photos within 14 days. I will definitely post the link as soon as I get it.


Sunday is considered my relaxing day. So I dressed the part. This is what I wore:
What I'm Wearing: Blazer  & Jeans from New York & Co; Top from H&M; Oxfords from Wild Pair
When: Sunday, November 14

I was (still am) a little sick. I have a cold that I must get rid of before my vacation starts this Friday.

This is what I wore today (it's raining out today, so I had taken the picture on Sunday):
What I'm Wearing: Blazer from Target; Top from H&M; Pants from Old Navy; Oxfords from Wild Pair
When: Today Actually (taken a day early due to checking out weather forecast and seeing that it was going to rain)
Work - didn't make any changes other than adding a watch
