And just like that I became a tv star! I’m kidding! Valentines day was definitely out of this world. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I was ever going to be on TV. Even on the live taping of The Voice and American Ninja Warrior I couldn’t even find myself in the background. So for me to be on Las Vegas Now as a style expert on live TV and let alone get to talk was out of this world.
Let’s start from the beginning. On Friday night when Jeff and I arrived to San Francisco I received an email that said “urgent”. At first I figured it was just spam. So I literally disregarded it. But once we were in the hotel room I decided to go back to my unread mail. There it was….
An email that said “Reaching out to see if you would be interested in being the on air style expert for a SHEIN fashion segment on Las Vegas Now Lifestyle Show on Friday, February 14th.”
I read and reread the email and I was like “maybe I’m just standing there”. So I replied to the email with the lowest expectation. Monday came around and the email came in with instructions on how my portion of the segment would go and all I read was “they will be modeling the clothing as you speak”. I literally was like no way they want me to speak.
I literally turned over and asked my husband “how does it feel to be married to a TV star?” You might think I am joking but I am sure I’ve asked my husband this question several times since then.
SHEIN had a pop up shop in town this last weekend and they wanted to make sure it got announce on the air. Which is why the models and I were there to begin with. Luckily my friend Becca was able to get there early, she really help me keep my nerves down.
Once I styled the girls outfits, it felt like I had two minutes to go over what I needed to talk about and we were off to the races. They called us to go on the set and two minutes later we were on TV. Next thing you know, my three minutes of fame were up. The funny truth.
Literally it was an incredible experience, I had the scary feeling in my belly like when I use to compete. All I wanted to do, was to do my best. I had some tears the few days before but the reward of feeling accomplished, and not giving up was totally worth it.
Before I end this long post, I wanted to tell you that I considered not doing it. I considered telling them that they got the wrong girl. Las Vegas Now, deserved someone with better qualities and of higher standard. I immediately noticed I had to change myself talk. Why couldn’t it be me? I am meant for greatness and in order for me to get any future opportunities like this I would have to push myself out of my comfort zone. Luckily, my amazing husband wouldn’t let me give up on me either. I kept telling myself, “they could have picked anyone, but they picked you!” As long as you don’t say the F word or catch the building on fire you will be fine.
I am here to tell you, that the fear is only temporary but regret can last a lifetime. If there is something in your life you fear, push yourself to do it because you do not want to live a life of regret.
Let me know of a fear you have that you want to overcome in the comments below. Also thank you so much for reading this long post!
