Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 390

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs


My darlings,


One of the questions I’m constantly asked while on location posing for kitty modeling campaigns is, “Tabs, how can I be as fabulous as you are?”

First of all, it is possible. I know that I make it seem easy sometimes, but I wasn’t always this fabulous. It took a lot of hard work and purr-severance, and now I’d like to share the lessons I’ve learned with you.

1. Cultivate a network of fabulous friends (and frenemies)

One of the best ways to learn how to be more fabulous is to spend time with other fabulous friends. Watch how they handle professional and personal situations. When do they purr? When do they meow? How do they strut and pose? Observe their attitude and mannerisms, and take every opportunity to network and meet even more fabulous friends. Pretty soon, as some of their fabulousness rubs off on you, you’ll start acting more fabulously too.

While you’re at it, it’s also important to cultivate a few frenemies as well, because you know what they say about keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. That, and there’s also no such thing as bad press when it comes to being fabulous.

2. Hire a social media strategist

Social media is a key component of brand management these days, but in striving to become a world class kitty supermodel, your time will be limited, so I suggest hiring a professional to help you handle the day-to-day upkeep of your many social media channels, someone who can post daily glamour pictures of you and carry around your iPhone. This way, you’ll have more time to connect with your fans.

3. Shop where other fabulous cats aren’t shopping

Because true fabulousness is about paving your own way, be a trendsetter, instead of a trend follower.

For instance, if all of your friend cats are shopping at Chanel this season, buck the trend and shop at Prada or Dior. Forge your own path, and be your own cat.

4. Star on a reality TV show

Even though you’re destined for greatness, it never hurts to get a little nudge, and there are few better ways to get yourself out there than by starring on a reality TV show.

If you’ve already completed the first three steps, you’re well on your way to being fabulous. A television audience will notice, which will propel you and your career to even greater heights. Reality TV superstardom helps you keep your name in the media spotlight and on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

5. Serve up your boss sauce

With a fabulous new way of handling yourself on a day-to-day basis, don’t take any guff from anyone, because true fabulousness can’t be suppressed or denied. So be your own cat, and show ’em who’s boss.

Now go forth, and be fabulous!
