Several months ago I was approached by SW Magazine to do an interview about my being a successful mumpreneur. I was terribly excited to be featured as I love that magazine and read all about other people in there and just think wow; I have a great business too. Now I get to be in there among them! Lorraine Crighton-Smith, the Editor, came in and settled in our Relax Room with a nice Aveda Tea and we began to uncover my story.
I have become modest since I moved to London from the US. That is actually one of the things that I like about my new found Englishness. That, and the fact I can say knickers, wellies and bloody nuisance (I don’t know why, these words just make me giggle). So I spilled my life like it was a river of truth – She must have slipped something in my tea 😉 I didn’t have to dish the any dirt, I wasn’t probed for gossip and I was at total ease. I am a good clean live’r and am just not that eccentric, I am not an alcoholic or a troubled soul, I love my life, my job is the best, my family rock and my business is incredible.
The day of the photo shoot I was having a fat day, I did my own hair and makeup as I was having a special day with my baby. I snuck into Julia’s studio with dark sunglasses and my baby in a padded elongated bag that made her appear to be missing, she was so little. I eventually found her under the blanket, as she slipped down the bag into the depths, and uncovered my heaven on earth. My little pink gift that is, Isabella.
So I unrobed for Julia and cuddled my angel in a way that I felt totally as one with the soft little piece of my heart. The camera clicked on and I, oblivious to the world, in that moment of pure love had created an image that would grace the front pages of my local magazine.
I guess I am famous now in my moment of complete exposure, not only physically, but in my nakedness of my love and life. I have done my first nude photo and it made the cover. So what am I complaining about? My new modesty I guess.
