My Modeling Gig

Pin It!

Did you know, I have a new job?

It’s true! It’s true! I now moonlight as a dish model.


And here we have the Elizabeth china. Perfect for the family with little children that still wishes to dine elegantly.

See, I could be a dish model.

Mr Heckles: I could play the Oboe. (Non-Friends-watchers, feel free to ignore me.)


And over here, we have your more-grown-up china. This is what you’d use when the boss comes to dinner…

Pearl River Mart

If you like pretty dishware (not to mention furniture, crafts, and Asian-themed knick-knacks), a stop at the Pearl River Mart is a must. It was difficult, but I restrained myself from buying *too* much; I walked out with 2 new dishes, some chopsticks, and a sheet of stickers. They had a cute-cute-cute panda pencil sharpener… but honestly, I do not need it!

If you could be a model for any company/product, what would you choose? A clothing store? A food company? Sportswear?

    Oh my goodness, that store! All those dishes! I wish we had a store like that here, complete with CCK model!

    I don’t know if I would want to model for a store. I would rather be a model for our city ads. Their slogan is ‘Cultivate Life’ and all their ads feature people doing fun things: shopping at the farmer’s market, cycling along the trails, running through canola fields, showshoeing, etc. I think that would be lots of fun!

  4. Molly says:

    I would want to be a model for an athletic brand like Asics. Then I would get to keep all the cute running outfits and shoes, of course… gotta love shoes 🙂

  6. Danielle says:

    I would def. wanna model sportswear. Take the pic mid jump/run wearing a running skirt lol

  7. dopaminergic says:

    I would model camera equipment. Lots and lots of camera equipment.
    Or I would be a soup model. Eating soup for the camera would be fantastic, haha.

  8. Katie says:

    Always just so full of amazingness!!!

    I would love to model for Whole Foods, dont know how that would work but I want everything there!

    Also Forever 21! I want all their clothes!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Krystina says:

    I would totally be a model for Endangered Species chocolate any day 😛

  10. Run Sarah says:

    Too cute! I would choose Lululemon as I love their clothing!

  11. Erika says:

    Haha! That’s too funny! You would make a great dish model! 😀

    PS- Check out my green tea/stevia giveaway!

  12. I always wanted to be a model! I even went to modeling school when I was in junior high. But I wanted to do high-fashion runway, and I stopped growing at 5’2″ so no chance that’ll ever work out. And now I’m old. 🙂

    Hey, didn’t post Banana Butter last night…our power went out at 10 p.m. and didn’t come back on until 3 a.m. (when I was asleep), so no post at all. But I’ll post it tonight fo ‘sho.

  13. Gloria says:

    I love cute tableware. It makes eating even that much more fun!

    I would be a Lululemon model. Mostly because I need the discount to be able to afford any more of it! If wearing workout clothes were acceptable for work, dinners, and social gatherings, I would pretty much live in my Lulu pants.

  14. You are beautiful!! Love the bowls too… When I was in NYC I found a plate for $1 at a Japanese market. It’s gonna be in my food pictures a LOT, let’s just say that haha.
    If I could model anything, it wouldn’t be any kind of product that you can buy, it would be TRUE BEAUTY! I know that sounds corny but to be honest, I wouldn’t ever want to be any kind of model unless I could set an example for other people and be someone they could look up to, someone who can be beautiful by her own standards and not society’s 😀

    1. Aww Lauren, that’s so amazingly sweet. Honestly, the world needs more people like you!

  15. megan says:

    If i could be a model for any place it would definitely be for nike clothing. I absolutely adore nike sportswear and it makes me feel super cool when i run it in it. I really think its cute how you modeled for those pretty dish ware stuff. very creative

  16. Monica says:

    I model for a clothing boutique near my house (for their online website) and I get free clothes!!! Its awesome!

  17. erinsloves says:

    aw u are so cute i love your pics! I would totally model for Urban Outfitters if I could..Im beyond obcessed, or maybe Sobe Life Water- love that stuff too!

  18. Laura says:

    Your eyes are so pretty! x
    I’d love to be a runway model, but sadly at only 5ft2, i don’t think it is going to happen! xx

    1. Oh me too! When I was little, I always wanted to be taller… but once I started dating (and going to dances), I was happy to be 5’5. My sister (who’s 5’1) always brags that she can wear the tallest shoes and still not tower over anyone :).

    Hi Katie!

    I read your blog consistantly, but can only comment on WordPress form one computer in my house (unfortunately, it is the one that rarely has internet connection.) But I love hearing about all of your adventures with food and fun recipes! You most certainly do make a wonderful dish model 😛

    I would love to be a dove “real beauty” model or a model for runner’s wear.


    1. Aww thanks Lexi!! So sweet of you to leave such nice words! 🙂

  20. Carley Frazer says:

    OOO you are looking fly with those dishes lady!!

    I would hands-down, without a doubt be A-OK with being a Running clothes, shoes, events (anything running) model. A. Getting to run-how cool. B. Uhm free running gear- YES please.
