Gemini Magazine Special Edition 2012: Asia Monet

 

Well, no, not entirely. During an afternoon chat with plus model Asia Monet, the subject of doing a special edition of Gemini for October popped up. Why you ask? Mainly to celebrate a dear friend and long time supporter of the magazine, and secretly I kind of missed the late nights staring at a computer screen. Any who, a few weeks later, the Special Edition 2012 was born and it is here for you to enjoy. So while we are not entirely back the way we teased you in the title of this post, we are here for a short time to spread a little inspiration.  Enjoy! [Click here to check it out]

GO VOTE! (Please)

28 Jun

Very rarely do we ask our readers to do anything. Our job is not to beg and plead for anything. Our job is to give you all of the information we think is key to living your life (not that we would ever tell you how to live it…we aren’t your mother, after all), and we take that seriously. We also take $250,000 seriously.

Chase and Livingsocial got together with an inspired project–err, mission.  Their mission is to grant a small business with $250,000, and to a small business that could go a long way.

Operating any business can be tricky when finances are called to order, however, operating a business that relies on advertising dollars, marketing, and distribution can be even trickier. (Clearing throat) Thus the plea for your vote. It literally only takes about 15-20 seconds (Instructions are below). We have until Saturday (June 30th) to get 237 more votes and we are hoping you will be one.

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.
