Cover Girl

I haven't blogged about this experience yet because I didn't really know what was going to come of it.

But about six weeks ago, I was contacted by a local women's magazine Verve and they asked me to be a part of a story that they were doing about women in advertising. They were wanted to play off of the show Mad Men call it Mad Women.

Of course, I was thrilled!
For one, just to be IN a magazine.
But also for my business to be highlighted would great for us.
And I love the show Mad Men.

It's what we call a "Triple Threat"
I happily accepted and waited to hear from the reporter, then about the photo shoot.
About a month ago, we did the photo shoot in a downtown office building. It was me and four other female ad executives at competitive ad agencies. Some we work with, some we work again and some we never see just because of different markets.
But it was really fun to get to be a part of. We spent several hours trying different shots and getting "glammed up." It wasn't quite what you picture when you watch a photo shoot on tv. It was pretty down and dirty, but I had a great time and enjoyed myself.

Ever since then, I have had a hard time blogging because well-I wanted to talk about it :)
But the issue came out this week and so here it is!

I was really happy with how it came out.
It was nerve racking to be in charge of so many people's "images" and then to have so little control over your own.

Matt made the comment that the woman to my right looks like Samantha's mother on Bewitched. He's hilarious.
Go ahead. Call me your cover girl :)

The issue is not up on their website yet. I am guessing it will be by the end of the week however. There are more pictures, but perhaps they will be on there. Check back for the link later!

Oh my word, rock star!!!! Love it, love it, love it. So impressed and so proud.

Samantha's mother, yes, but she also looks like she just realized her Spanx aren't working and so she has to suck in. Eek.

You go, girl :)

You are Bad-A! Seriously. You're a stud and now you're rivaling Hane for most studly in-law!

Ditto on Leslie's spanx comment. She looks like she is trying to hold her jacket closed before a button pops.
