The past month has been crazy busy in the life of Joeli. I had this displeasure of having to buy Stacy (my car) new shoes. I was on the way to a house party when I heard a weird sound and my car stopped moving so smoothly.. I pulled over half panicked half laughing I got out of my car and saw that one of her shoes were hurt and flat. I called a few people and my big, Heather Shaw came to the rescue. I had to buy all new tires which of course made me so broke I couldn't even eat. It was a BIG wake up call that I need to get my shit in gear and start saving like the big girl I want to be.
I had the opportunity to take a Manager's Level Food Safety course and passed (thankfully). I was kinda nervous but now have a manager's level food safety card and it is good for the next five years.
I was in The Ultimate Bridal Fantasy show this year for the wonderful Beth Sullivan. It was so much fun! I modeled for Argie Mitra. Her clothing is so amazing; it's kind of a Bohemian Chic. I was the only one of her models that both opened and closed the show. If you're in the modeling industry and you open or close a show it represents that you know what you're doing and that the designer can trust you to sell her collection. It was so amazing that she allowed me to be both the opening and closer. She is such a talented designer.
I had the pleasure of doing a make-up convention for L'Oreal Paris. It was a great experience and was PAIID! So i mean that's always a plus.
I also was able to work with Void the Magazine recently. I was the Centerfold for the February Issue which they call the "Love Issue". It was Void's first ever "Love Issue". I felt so wonderful and so classy sexy it made me realize how much I want to continue my modeling somewhere bigger. Void has also put allot of gigs my way which I am extremely thankful for.
Which brings me to my next subject, I am planning a trip up to New York City for the end of summer. I was going to try and make it happen a bit earlier but work is going to need me when it starts getting busy again at work, and being one of the two actual managers, I need to be there. That's fine though, I'm just fine to wait a bit and save up a good amount of money so that I'm comfortable while I'm in the city.
