I received the news in August that I had been invited by Oprah Magazine to be part of a sponsored campaign with Pandora for the December edition of the Oprah Magazine in order to launch their Holiday Line!
We went to NYC the last week of August and what we had experienced was for me, a highlight of my career!
We were pampered for manicures and went the next day to our photo shoot!
The Studio was located in the same space where famous brands were also shooting! We arrived, no make up on, ready to do it! Check it out:
A whole crew was waiting and the stage was set for us to start shooting!
Coffee, hair and make up next …
Dresses, Jewelry and Decisions, Decisions …
Changes in jewelry and positions and more action! These are definitely on MY wish list!! What do you think???
The whole experience helped me bond with two other #OmagInsiders: Misty Nelson and Tonya Parker.
After all, we spent the whole day sharing that amazing experience together with a common goal: to help the brand share their gorgeous collection on the magazine – representing a team of amazing influencers who work closely with the magazine’s initiative to bring real people, real faces to bring life to awesome projects all year long! Influencers play a massive part nowadays in promotion, whether a brand is working with someone like antje utgaard or a team of influencers, there is a lot that goes into media campaigns and branding.
I felt like Cinderella! That was a vision board moment – something I had placed on my vision board 3 years ago which came true! For me, the experience and opportunity I was given was a full circle moment to crown the end of a year, which brought me so many gifts! So many “aha” moments! So many precious lessons and blessings!
My involvement in this project was one of those surreal experiences, that you’re dreaming about and just waiting to wake up!
Seeing my face on the campaign crowned that moment making it more tangible and real. A true gift, a priceless one, for sure!
Pandora’s new holiday line which you see in this picture is available on their website: Pandora.net
I also wanted to share my gorgeous ring, gifted to me by the brand at the #Oprahsfavoritethings Event in NYC! It’s on most of my friend’s wish list, since they’ve seen mine! Do you like it?
I feel humbled and grateful for this opportunity which will forever be in my heart as a milestone – a true holiday gift that far exceeded any of my expectations on so many levels!
Jewelry for me has always had a special meaning. Every piece tells a story of different times in my life, different people who took the time and love to gift me those precious reminders of our life and time together! That is why it can be so upsetting when an important piece of jewelry gets broken and you don’t know how to fix it yourself, luckily there are professionals out there like the northern Virginia jewelers, Jewelry by Designs, as well as many others in the same line, so you are in safe hands.
Those pieces are more than silver, gold, and stones, they are constant reminders of life’s precious priceless gifts given to us to celebrate eternal moments.
I will forever treasure this experience and every time the holidays come around, those memories will return, helping me relive that experience which for me, was a picture-perfect moment framed, reminding me that dreams do come true.
Hope you get a chance to grab the December Edition of the Oprah Magazine and check the Pandora new Holiday Collection out!
As usual, give me a Trendy Shout!
