Behind The Scenes Of My Shoot For Cosmo Magazine’s May 2014 Issue

Behind The Scenes Of My Shoot For Cosmo Magazine’s May 2014 Issue

Cosmo-3

Meet James Demolet and Shiona Turini.

Back in February, I flew to New York in the midst of a snow storm, to shoot with Cosmo Magazine!

Right now, I can’t express how I feel…but it’s a pretty good feeling.  I am a faithful subscriber to the magazine and back in January, right after I returned from break, I decided to make a new vision board which included Cosmo. I received an email from them three days later, no lie!  The law of attraction, having a positive outlook and speaking things into existence is so real!

On the day, the issue hit news stands, I wrote on Instagram:

Im in the New @cosmopolitan Magazine May 2014 issue! Thank you so much @shionat! I remember being on set and I said “I still don’t believe that I am here” and Shiona. The Fashion Market Director said “why not?” And it just reminded me that sometimes we place ceilings on how far up we can go and marginalize ourselves without even realizing it. Anything is possible, and as long as you believe that you are worthy of the blessings that come your way, they will keep coming. This was on my vision board and now it’s real and a reminder for me to never stop dreaming. Thank you guys for the love and support.

For the past year, I’ve had the quote ‘Impossible is just an opinion’ included in most of my social media bios and this is just proof of that. I want to take this opportunity to just send some encouragement to anyone who is beginning their journey and haven’t quite seen the light at the end of the tunnel yet.

When I first started my website, there were more people who told me what I shouldn’t be doing, what I wasn’t supposed to do, and what I would NEVER do than those offering encouragement and support. It had a lot to do with the fact that blogging was so new, and certain rules hadn’t been set yet. We were all just trying to blindly figure it out.

If I had a dime for every time someone told me throughout my career, ‘YOU ARE JUST A BLOGGER’ (as if that word defined who I was and that’s all I would ever be), I would be able to quit everything now and live off of my savings for the rest of my life. Instead of being discouraged enough to quit, I continued to stay focused and as a result, every single thing that I wanted to do, that people told me was not possible, I have eventually been able to do!

I say all of this to say, I’ve always knew I wanted to be in the magazines I grew up on like Ebony, Essence and Sister 2 Sister, as well as Cosmopolitan, and it happened and I am so grateful and humbled by the opportunity. It’s a reminder to keep pushing and keep grinding and keep focusing on that next phase in your journey, while knowing that whatever it is that you want to do and dreamed of doing, can and will happen. You just have to believe it and believe in yourself!

Many thanks goes out to fab, fly chick Shiona Turini for the opportunity. She joined Cosmo last year as the Fashion Market Director and has been bringing a little flavor and diversity to the magazine.  Also, Senior Fashion Editor James DeMolet.

Even though it was a snowing really bad on the day of the shoot, everyone’s energy was so amazing and fun!

Here’s a few pics!

    Necole, you are such an inspiration. I am sitting at my desk at work literally with tears in my eyes. I don’t usually comment on celebrities’ posts, but I can’t help myself with you. I am loyal to ONLY your site. If I hear it in the streets, I don’t believe it unless NECOLE has it on her website. (lol, so serious) That’s just how influential you’ve been to me. I am aspiring to reach some goals and it is you that give me hope. God placed you hear for a reason. With love… XOXO

    Necole, you are my biggest inspiration ever. I keep telling myself that I can make it as long as I stay focused and follow my dreams. I want to do the same exact thing with my career as you did with yours. I always wanted to be a celebrity blogger, author, and business woman. When I see you doing this I sometimes feel like I may not be as lucky as you. Asking myself will I be good enough to launce a entertainment blog? Will I write a good enough book to appear on Oprah’s book club? Can I interview celebrities just like Necole and become so successful? I am trying to get my hands on the book “The Secret” that helped you turn everything around. I hope I can be as successful as you are one day and when I do I promise I will let the entire world know who inspired me to get where I am in life. Thanks for everything Necole!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!

    I only recently started visiting your website so I started clicking through articles links and found the one that led here. So happy for you and your success and that your dream of being featured in a major magazine came true. You look stunning.

    Exercising consciously with a well defined goal will guarantee the type of toned muscular body they
    are seeking. We simply love HardX. Common people need some role models in their life to imitate.
    Hard X now, The first weekend in May is the 2012 Nitro Champs, which promises to be
    spectacular.

    over again to read other news.
