Grateful. Grateful. Grateful! I felt like I was living a dream yesterday on the E! red carpet with Dove at the Emmys! Did you watch? Here are some pics. I seriously couldn’t stop smiling. Alicia Quarles and I gave two women a huge surprise and it felt awesome to be able to do that for someone. In case you missed it, check out the video!
I woke up 24 hours after taking my first barre class, and my legs were sorer then they’ve ever been… and I played college soccer. Why try barre you may ask? I had the privilege of trying out a Barre3 class before it opened to the public for BeautySweetSpot (no, Jeannine didn’t make me) at their new Manhattan flagship studio in the West Village, taught by the Founder, Sadie Lincoln. Wouldn’t you?
I’m writing this post with gratitude as I look out the window onto the Emmys red carpet from a suite at the Ritz Carlton in LA and reflect on the past five years. It’s been five years to the week that I decided to quit my job and go full time freelance. Not knowing exactly where that would take me, I created a vision board filled with dreams and ambitious goals. That year, I did my first national TV segment live from the Emmys red carpet for E!. Today, I came full circle and am back on the Emmys red carpet with E!, but this time as a spokesperson for Dove coined E!’s beauty insider. What happened in between I credit to drive, networking, mentors, strategic partnerships, tunnel vision and gratitude.
