A whirlwind affair

Hia everyone,
Everything is going so fast for me. At first it was scary but now I am getting the hang of all this being a busy girl business. Its great and I am loving every moment of it so far.
I was delighted today to receive texts from my friends to tell me that I was in Best magazine. Previously I had been contacted by Best magazine with regards to my make up tutorials on youtube. They asked if I would be interested in doing a featured story all about it? So needless to say I jumped at the chance.
Back at home with my heart pounding through my head. I received a call from Nilufer at Best magazine who there and then took a brief interview from me on the phone. Once we had spoken she sent my contract out in the post and so the story unfolds.
Amisha from Best magazine was dealing with the story and was ever so nice to me putting me at ease all the way. The full interview over the phone went great and I was told to head up to Newcastle where I would be getting a professional photo shoot.
As you can imagine, it was a very scary yet exciting day at the studio.
I just went with the flow and posed as best I could in front of great big umbrellas of light whilst getting snapped like a princess.
I was even asked to do a page on how to get Colleen Nolan and Sharon Osborne's eye make up look which would then be added in the feature.
So there I stood in the ladies bathroom inside the studio applying my eye shadow as was expected of me with the photographer snapping away behind me.
All I heard was " great job, Good girl Lauren and once more" It was like being a star.
I remembered thinking; I hope the camera doesn't pick up my shaking hand as I applied the eye shadow with fall out. Trust that to happen I said nervously.
It all went fantastic and off I popped back home.
Within two weeks of the interview and photo shoot I was in Best magazine. Front cover might I add. Wow I thought as I picked up four copies and took to the counter with the newsagent giving me the most peculiar look.
I felt like shouting "look that's me" but I didn't. I didn't want to embarrass myself.
Whilst all this has been happening to me. I have also had time to sit with my cup of coffee and relax on a morning whilst watching the TV. I noticed that deep plums are the in colours this season so I will be sure to be giving those colours a blast.
