Thank you Hinge Inquirer Publications for featuring me as one of your Southerners in the January issue of Southern Living Magazine.

During a previous shoot (read my blog post about Meg Magazine's 30 Under 30), I really liked how the stylist curled my hair. That inspired me to get a digiperm but unfortunately, my hair is too fine/straight, so I ended up with beach waves instead of big curls. Here's me explaining exactly just that to the stylist.
So to recreate those curls that I so longed for, she had to blow dry my hair straight and curl it again with a curling iron.
Success! And I love how she did my make-up. It was surprisingly light and suitable for everyday wear.
Here are some of the clothes I packed for the shoot. I also brought along a few accessories including the orange jewel necklace that my friend Ria Alazas made.
Since I didn't bring anyone along, it was nice of Editorial Assistant Kat Patino-Marquez to take some photos using my camera. This is one of the shots she took.
I said this before and I'll say it again, the best part about these things is meeting and getting to know nice people. Thanks again guys!
It was cute that they included my cat in the article. T and I were laughing because he was only mentioned in one of the boxes below (referred to as the "boyfriend") while Mariachi had the spotlight.
"Joei prefers to unwind with a really nice dinner after a long day, followed by bonding with her one-year old Persian cat named Mariachi."
