Spanx for the Memories


Miss South Carolina week arrived!  I dragged the old pageant gown box from underneath my bed, blew off the dust and proceeded to pray that some garment with rhinestones fit. Outfit after outfit, the mirror was not too kind. UGGH. Finding the perfect outfit and dealing with weight issues is one flip-flop women do not like! My new book, “Rhinestones on My Flip-Flops”,  being released in September, addresses weight issues that women face, spanx and much more!

Spanx to the rescue! I have a whole drawer filled with them; high waist, low waist, long boys, bra Spanx, non-bra, body suit Spanx, and the list goes on.

As an aging beauty queen it truly is a marvelous way to recapture somewhat of your pageant weight and revisit special memories.

Yes, as I walked the runway at the Township Auditorium with my Miss SC sistahs, we each remembered our moment of being crowned Miss South Carolina. Spanx for the memories….

In honor of my new book, “Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops,” I remembered a funny flip-flop story that occurred a few days after I was crowned Miss South Carolina-enjoy!

 

 


I was riding high after being crowned Miss South Carolina on Saturday night. Now it was time to prepare for the Miss America Pageant.

America – Melting Pot or Septic Tank?

I was PROUD to sing the National Anthem at the Miss South Carolina Pageant last week. It was a fun week filled with Queens, Princesses, Princes, Wanna-bees, Should-a-Beens, I’m-Done-With-This Pageant, and I-Can’t-Wait-till-Next-Year Competitors.  It was a beauty queen melting pot of variety of gowns, bodies and political opinions. It was a slice of America on steroids.
