Thank you! Now let's get real. - 07/03/14
Today was an interesting day. A local radio station, 94.9 The Game2, had a "morning beauties" contest. I ended up winning. I couldn't bring myself to ask people to vote for me, but I know my family rallied people far and wide for support. Lots of our local viewers stepped up too. For that, I'm really grateful especially being the "new girl" in Nashville TV town. Thanks for the love and support to Big Joe, Chase and Greg at 94.9. Thanks to our viewers. Thanks to my family and friends. Thanks to my team here at FOX17.
The contest was all in good fun, but my goal was to make something good come from it so I'm donating CPR kits to local schools that need them. The sponsor of the contest, Sister's Whimzy is also making a donation - which is great!
However, the contest made me think about the way people see beauty. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to post a picture of myself without makeup. That's nothing new - the #nomakeupselfie trend has been around. There's just more to beauty than what people see in a picture that involves hair and makeup.
See you in the morning, make-up free!
