Our girl boss in Cosmo

So y'all, our bosslady Sam was in Cosmo this month! (She doesn't know about this blog post, because she's mad shy about having her face all over the place. Too bad for her, because I quite like her face.)

It was for the Awesome Women feature, ahbviously, because she's awesome. And as though that wasn't awesome enough (so much of awesome going on here), she got to go have an actual photo shoot. I felt it was my duty to tag along and get under everyone's feet so you could all see behind the scenes footage. Don't say I never did anything for you guys.

And guys, there was so much make up. And so many shoes. It was the best, and I wanted to keep everything. As you can see, Sam was never far from her laptop, so if you ever needed proof that the woman doesn't stop working to make your Hello Pretty experience better, you've got it.  (So don't say SHE never gave you anything!)

After hair and make up came the most fun part: dress up!

That sparkly skirt is by KLûK CGDT, and still haunts my dreams. Want. So much.

While we waited we got to hang out with some of the other ladies in the feature, and dayum, Cosmo is right - they're awesome. (Feel free to kick my in the shins if I say awesome one more time. It's totes cool, you wouldn't even see the bruise in amongst the others.)

And then all of a sudden she was a schmodel! (I won't lie, it looks hard. I wouldn't be able to put aside my immense awkwardness.)

So ja, like, go buy a Cosmo man. Not only does the December issue have Sam in it, it also has Taylor Swift and pugs in it, which basically makes it the best Cosmo of all time.

Team HP hearts you bosslady - you're the bomb diggity.
