A few days ago I blogged about Dove Canada and how I’ve been given the opportunity to head to Toronto to be in a promotional music video. Well… today is the day the ladies & I get down to business. It’s 7:30am in Toronto and I had an absolutely dreadful sleep… tossing and turning until 4am. I blame it on a bad case of nerves.
Last night I got to thinking about how so much has changed in a single year and a bit. Since November 2009, my life has been a rollercoaster – in an absolutely fantastic way. So many things have happened, changing my perspective on friends, family, and health. A few big decisions need to happen this Spring – major, life-changing decisions. As much as I’m nervous, I’m excited.
Thinking about life and this experience with Dove Canada only reinforced how I’m truly blessed. I’m continually presented with opportunity. Opportunity to meet amazing, inspirational, fabulous people; opportunity to make a difference in this world; and opportunity to become the best person I can be. I cannot help but stand back and think – wow, I’m lucky.
Through a big yawn and sand in my eyes, I’m committed to saying Tuesday, February 22, 2011, will be incredible day. :) Here are a couple people we will be working with:
- Aakomon “AJ” Jones – Choregrapher: Aakomon has done choreography for Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour, Center Stage, Dream Girls, and various Academy Awards. I stalked him out — he has worked with Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, P.Diddy, Jamie Foxx, Uma Thurman, Usher, Johnny Depp, and so much more.
- Mark Townsend – Hair Stylist: Mark is a Hair Stylist to the most beautiful people in Hollywood. He has styled the hair of Penelope Cruz, Natalie Portman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, and the Olsen Twins. He has done the magazine covers of GQ, Glamour, Elle, InStyle, and Lucky. Mark is the official new Dove Hair Celebrity Stylist!
These two men terrify me. Today, 15 women from across Canada will sing and dance their hearts out. As much as we will learn choreographed moves, get our hair styled, and be spackled with makeup… we also plan to do Dove Canada proud.

Wish us luck and stay tuned for the video.
With love, xo.
