Day at the mall

Finished up Labor Day weekend with some shopping at the mall, but first we were a little hungry so dad created a McDonald's picnic in Nordstrom for us!
After a quick snack I was off to my favorite place - the make up counter! I love trying on everything especially lip gloss!

Modeling in Miami for Gap and Ellen DeGeneres' launch of GapKids x ED

I had the best time ever modeling with my new friends in Miami Beach for Gap and Ellen DeGeneres' launch of GapKids X ED clothing! We had an incredible day at the Gap Lincoln Road Flagship Location and the staff there treated us like princesses! The clothes were amazing, the people were wonderful and the message was exciting and inspirational! I can't say enough about how much I loved being included in this fabulous event and I am so thankful to Changing The Face Of Beauty for letting me have this opportunity. 

And guess what? The world seems to think this was amazing too! We are seeing articles pop up in lots of media sites all over the world and the responses we are getting from people are full of love and support! Thank you to everyone who shared, commented, and liked posts and let's keep the #ChangingTheFaceOfBeauty message going strong!

The Today Show!

I had the best time ever representing the Miss You Can Do It pageant on thd Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda!
We woke up early Monday morning 7/6 and headed to NYC. I was so excited!
We got to Rockefeller Center, took some pictures outside the studio and headed inside where I got to meet some new friends like Ruby Rose from Orange is the New Black! I also got to meet Cassidy Gifford (Kathie Lee's daughter), lots of Today show staff, Jenni Pulos (the MYCDI host - she rocks), and of course Kathie Lee and Hoda. They were all so fabulous!
After the show my family and I celebrated with lunch in Fred's at Barney's - a restaurant high above a fancy store in NYC!
It was such a great time and I can't wait for the pageant this weekend!
