Emily Maynard Heads to Africa — Is Jef Holm Going with Her?
You're welcome, the entire continent of Africa. You're forever welcome for the fact that Bachelorette Emily Maynard is once again blessing you with her glorious presence. Her mission? To impart words of fashionable wisdom to a bunch of peeps in Ethiopia. Basically, she's doing the lord's work.
Emily is one of several bloggers (including our favorite fashion sleuth, Dana Weiss of Possessionista) to join BlogABLE on a trip to Ethiopia from August 10-14. Em and her cohorts will spend time at BlogABLE's FashionABLE headquarters, and join their commitment to fight poverty and help women in Africa start small businesses with fair wages!
Of course, this isn't Em's first time in Africa. She and her Season 8 Bachelorette ex-fiance, Jef Holm, took a trip overseas to Ghana back in August 2012 to build wells with Jef's company, People Water — though girlfriend didn't exactly enjoy the experience. Apparently, Em hid out in an airconditioned room for most of the trip (in order to watch Bachelor Pad, duh) and a source told Us Weekly that "she was miserable."
Hopefully Emily's upcoming trip to Africa will go slightly better than her OG vacation with Jef! Let's just hope she has access to a television.
