Kenmore Online Reality Show & iPad Giveaway

Me on a reality show….for reals?

That was what I was thinking when I was asked. And to be asked to be on the first ever online reality show as a guest of Kenmore was just humbling.  AND to take it even further, I’m being asked not because I’m perfect…but because I’m imperfect. HA! I got imperfect down. That’s kinda me in a nutshell.

Okay, so what the hell am I talking about? Kenmore has created the first EVAH completely online reality show on their Facebook Fan Page called…..

RIGHT NOW fashion designers are in a competition that is being videoed live and broadcasted 24/7 on the Kenmore Facebook Fan Page on their Live Studio. But every Thursday, it’s edited and a special one hour show is premiered to recap what has happened. This week four for them. The designers have to design an outfit for a REAL WOMAN and do it  “from the heart” without ever having met the model. AND the models are NOT stick figures in a size 0, they are real women. And I’m one of them!!!!!! (Me, Leah Segedie aka @bookieboo)

“From the Heart” means that I had to video myself in the dark with a flashlight explaining who I was, what I do, and what kind of fashion I”m comfortable in. I couldn’t show them my face or figure, they have to listen to my voice and heart. But I did send them my measurements. Now for me, fashion is unique. I used to be a size 22 and now I’m a size 6, so every time I go out with adults, I like to dress up and show off all my hard work. It’s kinda like my “after” makeover day.

Here is my transformation….

This is what I used to look like…

And this is what I look like today (when I’m all dolled up of course)…

SO, this THURSDAY, April 14th at 7pm CST, the show premieres LIVE in the Kenmore Studio and the Kenmore Facebook Fan Page. There will also be an opportunity to vote for the best outfit and designer and I’d LOVE for you all to come and watch me strut my stuff on the catwalk and VOTE FOR MY OUTFIT AND DEISGNER!!!!
