Windy City LIVE

video December 12, 2014 2 responses

Yesterday, I was on Windy City LIVE with Crain’s Chicago Business! The entire experience from learning that I was selected to be on TV, trying on different looks (I just love this Eliza J dress), getting my hair done at Blowtique, waiting backstage and to actually being on live TV was so exciting! I still can’t believe it!

Jackie, who made this all possible, is a fashion reporter from Crain’s and is the sweetest ever! We first met back in the fall when I was selected as the business model of the week. Remember this?! It was fun modeling in the segment with Nika, a fellow blogger buddy and meeting Chanecia and Ashley, who is so fun and I feel this experience has bonded us in an unexplainable way!

Again, it was sooo much fun and I’ll never forget this amazing experience. Enjoy the video!

It was such fun experience shooting with Jackie and Shane, from Crain’s, at the Field Museum. And a special thank you to Lucille at the museum for letting us roam around to find that perfect location. Click on the link to read the full article and to view all the great shots from the day.

P.S. My elephants sure did feel at “home” with their buddies above.
