Behind The Scenes: Bloggers Getting Their Own Cosmo Covers

Lights, camera, SMILE! The Colgate Optic White #WearASmile campaign has officially launched. You can now log onto the Wear A Smile blog and upload your best smile pics to win that chance to get your own Cosmo Cover! More on that here.


Some stylish bloggers and I were invited to experience a little taste of what the winner will receive, and we each got our own Cosmo Cover experience.

We had an absolute blast! A full day of getting our hair and makeup done and being styled and photographed for our very own Cosmo Cover! Here’s a little sneak peek, behind the scenes pics from the day… Enjoy xx

colgate-optic-SA-fashiongirlThere’s a reason she’s called the SA Fashion Girl! Just love Sheri’s rocker style!

colgate-optic-dimi-hairThis was my Rocker-inspired hairstyle. The creation of Chantelle Craig who absolutely ROCKS! Love, love, love!

colgate-optic-white-dimi-poseI’m far more comfortable being behind the lens, but after striking a few poses (in that awesome ZARA leather and lace top) I have to admit that was fun! I probably would’ve nicked that top if it wasn’t two sizes too big (hence the clips at the back). I’ve been popping into ZARA every time I’m near Gateway, but we seem to be a little slow down in Durbs! If you spot it, let me know! 🙂

colgate-optic-white-portraitAll in a day’s work! That was my final pic. I don’t normally like pics of myself, but I’m kinda loving this one!

Thanks so much to the Colgate Optic White team and Danielle for allowing me to be part of this fun filled day. A big thanks to the amazing “preggie bellie” gals; Cheryl and Chantelle who made me pretty, my talented stylist (you know who you are :P) especially for making me lust over this top and to the talented Johan Wilke for the pic!

Okay, so now that you’re all amped up to get your own Cosmo Cover, check out how you can win this awesome competition here! And remember pouts are so last season – rock your most stylish accessory – your gorgeous smile!
