  1. Oh pretty! The sparkles and Bollywood theme make me happy! Thanks for sharing all of the fun with us. I still think you are captivating 🙂

  2. I was hoping you would write a post like this. I love all of your pageant pics and totally craved more. There was this show on Lifetime a few years ago that followed around adults who participate in pageants. It was a train wreck, they found the worst people they could find and it was hard to watch. People called and emailed the producers demanding it get taken off the air, I was one of those people. So happy to see another side of pageant life, the side that inspires me to reach for my goals and be the best version of myself. I love all of your pictures. It’s so fun to see behind the scenes.
