OMGosh so excited I cried!!!! Standing in front of my all time favorite artist’s paintings (Van Gogh) today at the Musee d’Orsay here in Paris, then waking along the Seine and hubby and I putting a lock on the bridge for lovers…. it just hit me so hard that I’m actually living the life I’ve always dreamed of. Growing up I always struggled with depression and low self esteem. I never felt that I was good enough or worth anything to have good things happen to me. I thought good things would happen because I was a nice girl and smart…but never because I deserved it. (On the other hand my greatest gift is being able to see with crystal clarity the true beauty and potential of everyone else) [Read more…]
Yes, You Look Pregnant….But You’re NOT!
That’s because you are eating something that you are sensitive and/or allergic too. For me it’s gluten. Oh bread how I love thee. And how I loath how you make me look and feel! Hey everyone thinks gluten is evil and it’s not….at least it’s not evil for everyone. But it is for me. And if you feel you look pregnant (but you’re not), then it might be evil for you too. Want PROOF? [Read more…]

How to Have Clear Skin
After receiving the exact same question on the same DAY from several Red Haute Mama’s from around the globe, I felt it was time to do a quick post on this…..how you can have clear skin.
Before we begin, there’s something you should know….I DON’T naturally have fabulous skin. To be perfectly frank, I have to work for it. Like, really really work sometimes. But there are several things I do to make having clear, gorgeous, skin easy. And you can do them too! Here are my secrets: [Read more…]
How to Get Signed With a Modeling Agency
One of the most common questions I’m asked is, “Red Haute Mama, how do I get signed with a modeling agency?” So for the first time ever, I’m going to share my top secrets publicly with you.
1. Do NOT call them!! Or email them. Or “pester” them in any way! Go to their website and see what their submission guidelines are. If they have an open casting day, show up, be professional, courteous, and kind.
2. Look “natural” overall – totally different from the glamorous images you associate modeling with, I know. But you want to look as naturally beautiful as possible. Wear a
simple (totally form fitting and flattering) dress, or jeans with a form fitting tank. Soft, pretty, natural hair (like soft waves or softly straightened).
3. Simple and natural makeup. Only enough to highlight your beauty. Tinted lipgloss, 1 or 2 coats of mascara, tinted BB cream, or tinted moisturizer. Natural blush – if any at all. [Read more…]

You’re 2mm From Fabulous
You know those days when you feel like a failure? Or maybe you feel like you are pedaling like crazy but never getting anywhere? Or you question if you are living your life to your full potential?? That’s how I felt yesterday. Just feeling bummed out, low, and a teeny bit useless. Thinking maybe I was on the wrong path. Considering tossing my big ideas and dreams out the window. (Hey, you’re entitled to be a little dramatic when you’re hormonal, right?)
Then my friend Melanie Britton sent me this. [Read more…]
Hairy Leg Pantyhose
Would you ever go out of your house with super hairy legs? Me neither. Unlesss……
Some women are wearing these faux hairy leg tights to ward off would-be attackers. Would you?
My love affair started the moment I set eyes on it…a gorgeous floaty chiffon dress with spaghetti straps, fitted waist, and flared hips. It was feminine, flirty, and when I put it on, it hid my muffin-top, hips, and (at the time) flat butt. Score! [Read more…]
