The Fashion Hero Episode 1 Filming (Riviera Maya, Mexico)

Over the past week and a half, I flew down to sunny Riviera Maya, Mexico and spent November 6 – November 13th at the beautiful Grand Serenis hotel filming for the first episode & season of The Fashion Hero.

The Fashion Hero is an international casting event and television series. Its mission is to change the unhealthy and unrealistic standards of the fashion and beauty industry, by bringing people who do not fit the traditional norms of this industry, giving them a chance to be selected by international brands and model in one of their advertising campaigns.

I was so blessed to have such an amazing experience during the week’s filming of The Fashion Hero.  I was even more thankful to represent Laboratoire Dr. Renaud. What an amazing skin care line! The best thing about Dr. Laboratoire Renaud is that this line has products for all skin types.  This is very appealing to me as a woman with a darker complexion. For dry skin, Dr. Renaud’s SensiDerm Cleansing Milk removes the day’s impurities, bringing the skin back to its natural luster.  For oily skin, try Dr. Renaud’s SeboBalance Anti-Aging fluid for a healthier texture and younger looking skin.  Goodbye bad skin, Hello radiance! :)

My favorite part of the week was filming my commercial for Dr. Laboratoire Renaud, and to boot, my now-Fiance (boyfriend at the time) flew down and surprised me with an engagement ring--He popped the big question! Of course I said yes :). So, I have no complaints for the week. We also had a little segment filmed on the engagement proposal so please look out for this when the show airs.

My brand manager, Anne Marie Caron was super professional and very sweet. It was really nice getting to know her and all of the girls with my brand.  Below is a photo of me and Anne Marie.

Everyone was amazing and I formed some lasting friendships.  As a plus, I got to practice my French, since a lot of the group were from Montreal and spoke French.

3 stars for a great week overall!

Check out more photos below from the week’s filming and I got to enjoy some time by the waves as well.
