Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful 2014, and I hope 2015 is amazing as well! This past year was an eventful one for me. Lots of highs, a few lows, lots of growth and learning, and above all...FUN!
I started shooting with Coquette Lingerie at the beginning of 2014, and have worked with them 4 times this year. I just adore this company, and cannot wait to get back to work with them again. I also shot for such amazing brands as Cherry Velvet, Deadly Couture, Rowena, MayMac, Heart of Haute, Lindy Bop, Glitter Paradise, Orchard Corset and more. I am so thankful for all the opportunities 2014 brought my way and cannot wait to see what opportunities will present them selves in 2015.
I also traveled for work and pleasure a lot. I was able to fly to Toronto three times this year, went to Vegas, not only for the International Lingerie Show, but also for my first time at Viva Las Vegas, where I met so many amazing people, and had so much fun.
I also traveled to Seattle, Portland, Spokane, and California, shooting along the way, having fun, and meeting friends new and old.
I had stage kitty duties at multiple burlesque shows, which is always loads of fun!
I was published 35 times, including 5 covers, and I cannot wait for future publications in the coming year!
I left my day job to pursue my modeling full time. It was a big leap, and was scary, emotional, and exciting all at the same time. I started my own magazine, focusing on body positivity, self love, and finding beauty in our unique qualities. It has proven to be a lot of work, but it is a labor of love. I love being able to put my thoughts and ideas out into the world. Beauty Mark Magazines second issue will be released in February, and I only hope it is just as well received as the first issue. I have very high hopes for the magazine and am so thankful for all the love and support it has received thus far.
I was apart of Valt 2014, for the 3rd year in a row, and rocked the runway for Carolyn Bruce Designs, Shiverz Designs, and K.O-ME designs. It is always such a fun event to be apart of, and I cannot wait for Valt 2015!
2014 was not all good. My remaining grandparents declining health meant moving them all into care homes. It is so hard to see people whom I love going through Cancer, Dementia, broken bones due to age and falls etc. Its been hard to watch their houses, which I grew up playing in, be cleaned out and put up for sale. I know they are where they need to be and they are safe, but that was not a fun part of 2014.
In 2015, I'm looking forward to more travel, photo shoots, runway shows, publications, love and fun! I look forward to seeing where my career takes me, both in modeling, and the magazine. I have a few other projects that I plan on releasing in 2015 which I am really excited about!
Thank YOU all for your wonderful love and support throughout the past year. I know that I wouldn't be where I am without the amazing support I receive from my followers and I am SO grateful for that.
I hope 2015 is an amazing year for all of you, filled with everything you need. Here's to another year filled with love, fun, passion, and laughter.
