Can you believe it? I was featured in the March 2018 issue of Vanity Fair! And even though I knew it was coming for an entire year, there is still no feeling like being displayed in a magazine published by Condé Nast. Amongst 11 other influencers, I graced the glossy pages of one of my favorite monthly reads. The feeling is surreal when you walk into your local pharmacy and pick up a magazine you know you’ll find yourself in. I almost wanted to leave the page open to where my face is, so everyone else could see.
Top edited by a former Vogue writer, my Vanity Fair bio reads: “Armed with a signature blunt bob and bold tattoos, New York native Christina Zayas melds style, travel diaries, and beauty ethos into one fabulous universe with her blog.” Perfecting the copy was no easy fete. It took some time to narrow down the many things I wanted to mention about myself and my blog. After a month of deliberation (and getting as many hands in the pot as I could), we came up with gold! I will surely have this issue framed in my office.
The joy this feature brings me, is like no other. Dreaming is easy, but hard work is, well… hard. I work my ass off, and often times have gotten confused of what my goals are. Seeing this Vanity Fair article brought me back to why I started and where I want to go. I hope you stick around for what’s to come, and don’t forget to pick up an issue of this month’s Vanity Fair!
