Southern Living Magazine

SOLI SEPT COVERThis doesn’t happen very often, so allow me to be a little flattered that I was asked to be on the cover of Southern Living Magazine this month.

CatJuanSouthernlivingIn my interview I talk about how Carl and I met, my first year into motherhood, and why I decided to professionalize the look and feel of my blog when I moved back from Sydney.

Here are some behind the scenes shots from our shoot.


Getting hair & makeup done by Lillian Yeung and Renz Pangilinan.


In between shots with Chere Gioskos of W Talent Management, the wonder-woman who made this feature happen.


A snap with Renz, Lillian, and stylist RJ Roque.


That’s a wrap. A family-style portrait with photographer Dix Perez, writer Dianne Pineda (far right), and the rest of the SL glam team!

This is Southern Living’s beauty issue, so it’s filled with tons of beauty tips as well as tried and tested products. If you’d like to grab a free copy, you can message the lovely SL Team via theirĀ Facebook page.
