The Time Has Come!

So I just got some more exciting news. I mentioned this a while back and nothing really ever came of it. ReadyMade magazine approached me last year for their HDYGTFAJ (How did you get that f^&*ing awesome job?) feature. I did an interview and photoshoot and then I didn't hear anything from them for months.


Well I finally got the call and it's back on track. I'm going to appear in the April/May issue. They are going to do a new photoshoot in a studio this time (as opposed to the first one in my office). And I get to have hair and makeup! Hooorayyy!!!

I was told to wear something soft and pretty since it's a spring issue. Too bad all my spring clothes are packed away for the long deep freeze. Guess I'm just gonna have to go shopping...

I'd like to wear this dress with a YSL Arty metal ring or 2. And I'd be super psyched if my hair & makeup would look like this :)
