It’s Here! It’s Here!

2 Jun

It has been a long and slow process for the first half of 2012, but finally it’s here. Gemini Magazine is back. We can’t say we are back in a big way (just yet), but we can say that we are making positive changes with planned issue for this year.  This issue showcases the story of a plus model, Brittany Jemison, who dropped over 100 pounds and healed her inner self along the way. Our job as a publication is to inspire and inform the reader, and the journey of our cover girl will do just that.

We won’t keep you long so sit back, enjoy the read and keep an eye out for our next adventure. This month we will be announcing a joint campaign with Naturally Me and the Honey Bun Boutique to get you up and moving. Until then, read and re-read our first issue of 2012 and let us know how we did!  (Click the cover to read)

GEMINI Is Back: Change Is Good

4 May

Change is a good thing. Often times we run from it when in all actuality our lives would be so much more fulfilled if we ran toward it. We have been missing in action for quite some time and while it hurt to be away for so long, it feels good to know that we did a little changing too. When there is growth there is change and vision becomes transformed as well. Happily, we can say the GEMINI vision has been tweaked a bit.

The vision for the publication has always been to inform plus size women on how to improve their life through simple solutions. Luckily, for those who enjoy that type of material, we are keeping with that tradition, but our latest vision is to take a step beyond the fashion, the parties, and the pretty pictures and provide a comfortable place for women to voice their opinions and concerns and learn about something a little deeper. Clothing is important (especially for those of us who may want to go outside in something more than our birthday suit) and we get it. Fashion shows are fun and exciting, we get that too, but without physical/mental/spiritual health the fun stuff is all for naught.

Over the next few months, you will hear us reference change being good quite a bit because we believe that nothing great can come from being stagnant. We are so proud to celebrate our return with our cover girl Brittany Jemison who has lost over 100 pounds. She had the courage to step out of her norm and do something different and boy look at her now!  We can not wait for you to get to know her and we hope you love her as much as we do. We invite you to grow and transform with us. Reach out there and do something you have never done. Get lost on your way home from work or eat a food you have never tried. Step out of your norm as we step out of ours and let’s learn together.
