On the Cover of the Nashville Scene

On the Cover of the Nashville Scene

Posted on 21. May, 2009 by Yvonne Smith in Blog, Nashville

It’s not every day that one gets to be on the cover of a paper and/or magazine. It’s especially not every day that one is on said cover in a bikini! It was quite surreal yesterday walking into Whole Foods and seeing stacks and stacks of Nashville Scenes with me on the cover in a tiny two-piece swimsuit smiling happily with flowers in my hair. I mean, of course I knew I was going to be in it, but I didn’t know about the cover until the night before. It still feels a little strange, but it’s been fun to read all my Facebook comments, texts, phone messages, etc.

The best part of this whole thing is that people see how much of a difference my diet has made in my appearance. Anyone who has known me for several years knows I lost several sizes and gained better skin when I went vegan. I also feel so much stronger, happier and healthier! It has made such a huge difference in my life and I want to share it with the world.  I’ve been a vegetarian for 16 or 17 years, but my three year Veganniversary is June 1st!

Carrington Fox of the Scene is the reason I got this opportunity and she even wrote about me in the Bites Blog today. Thank you, Carrington, for this opportunity. Big thanks also go out to Eric England and Rob Williams of the Nashville  Scene, Wesley Adams of Phase III Wellness, Next Level Fitness, Deana Kale at EyeCandy, Sarah at Hue Nashville, Rhonda Parman of Artists Studio, Gina Whitaker at Private Edition, Fresh Harvest Co-op, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Thank you all for helping me look my best!

    Wow, I’d only seen the smaller version of the cover on Facebook. I’m gonna save this to pull out when anyone makes a crack about “what being vegan does to ya…”

    And I only feel free to keep going on about the pic because you know that I know that your success is from your skills and a lot of hard work. Keep it up!

    Congratulations on your magazine feature! That’s awesome that you can chalk it up to such a sustainable and earth-friendly diet. I’m a vegetarian, but your diet success makes me want to mix in some more vegan meals.

    Was fun to look up the “who’s on the cover” panel and say, “hey, I know her…” I think you’re the first bikini cover-girl I’ve ever actually met in person (though it was before the, umm… “exposure.” Congratulations, well done by all.

    Very very nice and sexy, and the cover ain’t half bad either :P Awesome that you’re doing the whole vegan thing. I have you beat though, about 3 1/2 years for me.
