Ok so having met plenty of people famous in their field over the years (Mary King, several former NHLers including Theo Fleury etc), you'd think a little simple tweet wouldn't get me too excited. WRONG!
The other day I tweeted a photo from a recent lingerie shoot to Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, as both partially inspired it through their vogue italia editorial by Steven Meisel. Didn't really expect a reply off either as they're both big name working models with barely enough time in the day to tweet...but Candice tweeted me today congratulating me and saying i was "looking good!!!"
The tweet came through when I was in the gym with my PT and he couldnt understand why I came out of the locker room grinning like a cheshire cat - normally i come out scowling at him for being so flipping brutal on me!
Anyhow it's probably not of much interest to many here but it made my day (lets be fair, sweating my backside off in the gym with only sneaking glances at the dressage wasn't gonna be the highlight!)
Who are Candice and Robyn? (sorry I live a sheltered life).
Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, two very famous plus size models (Candice regularly models for Simply Be's tv ads and Robyn is the new face of Boux Avenue lingerie) - they were part of the collaboration that went down in Italian Vogue history as one of the most influential plus size editorials ever.
Candice isn't everyone's cup of tea, some say she's a little average in the sea of emerging plus size supermodels such as Robyn, but I like her because she flits from giggly happy commercial to super-fierce in the blink of an eye. And we both have a pageant background (Candice got spotted at a pageant by someone who recognised her future was in modelling, not miss teen usa)
Twitter is a interesting platfrm, a friend of mine,a lady in her late 40's, became interested in it & the whole social media thing 2-3 years ago - started with archery conversations with Russell Crow, last year a trip to NASA followed by some consultancy work, met her last week & now several thousand tweets later she's doing some work for Will.I.Am. It definately can open doors if used correctly.
Must admit I'm still struggling with it.
