I have been reading the magazine for well over 25 years. I remember stealing or borrowing without asking my mother's subscription until she finally gave me my own subscription at 15. I still plan to submit my photo and essay to their annual January issue of being fabulous after 40. I'm a few years off so we will worry about that issue when the time come .
I'm so happy to be in the company of such smart, engaging, and oh so pretty women. Tia - Shake Your Beauty (my fairy beauty godmother and who turned me on to the beauty blogging game. She is a beauty rock star), Patrice - Afrobella (every word she writes makes me want to be a better writer); and she's so scandalous – Erin of Scandalous Beauty (she makes me want to do more videos on the site).
Thanks Essence.com. I'm proud to be in such great company. You make me proud to spell my name -W-O-M-AN.
