My roommate in college was like a magnet. We’d walk into a bar, party, anywhere and guys would line up to meet her. She had a chiseled, beautiful face but what made her truly beautiful was her sweet personality and her intelligence. She could talk to anyone and hold her own in any conversation. She had the rare gift of having a photographic memory and was able to ace any exam, as long as she read the book. She went on to be a successful accountant, married a great guy and now has two beautiful kids who are just as successful and intelligent as she is.
Pretty faces don’t always evoke thoughts of intelligence and that’s an unfortunate bias most people have with models.
Why do we carry on the stereotype that brains and beauty can’t coexist?
I realize it goes along with the misconception of models being nothing more than visual objects but we love that our MAJAMAS models, like my old roommate, possess way more than good looks.
We’d like to introduce you to our very own models : the beautiful, intelligent and successful women who are becoming the face of MAJAMAS. This week, meet Brittany and read her bio below to see how – like MAJAMAS clothing – her substance is authentic, smart and beautiful.
“I am a woman who loves to spend time in nature. I love hiking on a beautiful trail, camping in our baby blue VW bus with my husband Scott, or just spending time outside gardening. I am passionate about growing my own fruits and veggies, and staying completely connected with the food that is nourishing my body and the bodies of the people I love. I am a Chef by trade. I have spent the last 6 years or so schooling, training and working in the field of cooking. I have worked for families, cooking their daily meals. I have worked for event planners, cooking for weddings or large parties. I have cooked in restaurants, large and small, loving the fast paced and heated environment of a commercial kitchen. But my favorite place to cook is at home, for my husband and my family. I get great satisfaction out of the love I put into my food and the love that they can taste. Love really does make a difference.
I am excited to be a new mother. I am also nervous to have the responsibility to raise a just and kind human, as any new mother is I suppose. But I am so excited to instill my knowledge of food, and the land into my son. I am excited that my husband and I get to have a little surfing companion to share our love, fear and respect of the ocean with. I am excited for all of the new adventures that are waiting for us just around the corner. This is just the beginning of our beautiful life.”
Here’s what she had to say about working with us:
“MAJAMAS clothing line is the best maternity clothes I have found so far! The clothes are functional for a pregnant woman or nursing mother. Not only are they functional but they are attractive and can be easily dressed up, worn casually out on the town running errands, or just lounging at home. Working in the hospitality industry, I need maternity clothes that can also be business casual as well as comfortable enough to be worn for 10 hours or longer. I now need to look no further! MAJAMAS is what I have been searching for! Thanks for making the clothes all of us pregnant women have been looking for!”
