There are points in your career that you know you will remember forever, especially personal firsts. When Allure asked me to unbox their April Beauty Box, this was a major first for me! When I heard about this opportunity, I was over-the moon excited…and then the nerves came. A million questions ran through my head: “How was I going to do my very best? What if I mispronounce a designer’s name? What will I wear?” You know, the kinds of questions that probably run through all of our heads when we’re presented with a new opportunity. My solution was to do a little homework, so I could feel comfortable filming and enjoy the moment. I had to Google a couple of the products, just to make sure I pronounced the designer names properly. I even practiced saying the names aloud a bunch of times. I’m sure my blooper reel is hilarious! This was an important reminder for me that mistakes are a normal part of any learning process, and it’s really all about how you recover from them. Can anyone relate?
It felt incredible to accomplish my goal and put this video out in the world. Go check out Allure’s April Beauty Box, and sign up to you receive yours! You will love what is in there.
