As part of the Spring promotion for my jewelry line, Anne Belen Jewelry, Belk is running a special advertorial in Garden & Gun's March/April magazine! As I write, yours truly has her hair in rollers, several different "looks" laid out, and jewelry all ready to go. I am one manicure and an early flight away from glossy page history!
What cracks me up the most is that most readers don't know that I am nearly 36 weeks preggers, grumpy, puffy, and just wiped this morning's cereal off my floor (thanks Ella). When initially asked to participate in the photo shoot, my first thought was "It's Christmas season, I am REALLY pregnant, and you want me to sell Spring now and wear what?" Gimme a break-how much more can I squeeze in? What I heard coming out of my mouth, was "Yes, I'd love to!"
Let's be honest, I have been working at being fabulous and creating gorgeous jewelry for over 10 years now. And that's the thing.... for one moment in glamorous history it takes a lot of prep work. A. Lot. So... will I be beaten by lack of shut eye and some extra lbs? No. I won't. If technology is going to benefit the human race, it certainly should benefit me. One word- Photoshop.
So...we shall see what tomorrow's photo shoot holds for me. Follow me on Twitter @studioannebelen and on Instagram @annebelen1. I'll be posting the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ok, I lied. Life is too short for ugly.
