Sometimes the most magical things happen when you least expect it. You could be sitting on your couch in your PJs, reminding your toddler for the millionth time that jumping off the couch isn’t as cool as he thinks it is and then BAM you get a phone call about something awesome. I was lucky enough to receive one of those calls and I can’t even begin to describe how surreal it all feels.
I’ve been working with TS14+ behind the scenes for months, they’re just one of those companies that got me, I mean really got me and valued my opinion. If I had a question they’d happily answer it. If I found a fault with an item of clothing I was reviewing they’d recall it. If I needed goodie bag fillers or assistance with charity events they were there for me. With Ts14+ there’s a level of trust between us that I can’t even get into right now. Let’s just say that when blogging mentors talk about great relationships between bloggers and brands, we would be a prime example.
Being invited to see behind the scenes of a shoot is always lots of fun but just a little bit more stressful if you’re the one in front of the camera. I’d picked out the outfits from their initial selections the day before so on the day it was all just a matter of throwing it all on and trying not to sweat my make up off, it was the end of Summer after all. My hair is a little crazy but big hair is always a bit of fun. Afterward we chilled out, ate a huge lunch and talked shop, so good. There was even talk that I might also make it into the print catalogue….eeeeek!
Just looking at the TS14+ homepage is so bizarre. I know it’s me, it looks like me but it’s just so hard to believe I’m so “out there” just doing it, all on my own, not trying to be a “plus size model” but just being me. I’m keen to see how the TS14+ customers respond to seeing the larger sized pieces on a larger sized lady, it’s like my old Changeroom Confessions post but on steroids, I’m so flipping excited I can’t stand it. I feel so lucky.
