Welcome to Pageantology!

After months and months of research, writing, designing our website and prepping...IT'S FINALLY HERE! Yay!

We’re so excited to provide a space on the internet where pageant girls and fans alike can enjoy fun, exclusive content like videos, makeup and beauty tips, nutrition advice, our favorite yummy recipes, giveaways, contests, articles from special guest bloggers, inspirational stories, behind-the-scenes photos and SO MUCH MORE on all things pageant!


We think pageants are awesome and want to help eradicate the stereotypes that exist in our society about “beauty queens”. This is why our mission with Pageantology is to redefine what it means to be a beauty queen. Through our private pageant coaching and The Pageantology Workshop (coming to a city near you!), we hope to be your mentors as you prepare for your next pageant by providing you with honest and respectful feedback and empowering you to be your best individual self who loves the person she sees in the mirror everyday! THAT, my ladies, is what's going to help you stand out and win a pageant. Wholeheartedly loving yourself is the foundation to your success in every aspect of life! We're human and have our own moments of doubt from time to time, but overall, having a healthy sense of self-love everyday as we balance relationships and work as models, actresses, motivational speakers and television hosts is a HUGE help!

"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."
- Buddha

Pageants have done so much for our lives. We’ve been friends for years now and we feel so blessed to embark on this new venture together. If you haven’t seen it, here’s the video of Susie’s final walk as Miss USA 2003 and the awesome moment when she crowned Shandi, Miss USA 2004! This is where our friendship began:

Who knew that years later we would be the closest of friends and starting a business together? We may look different and come from totally different walk of life but we’re certainly sisters : ) We share a special bond and experience that few women have had the pleasure of experiencing and we don’t take that for granted.

We’re ready to work hard to bring you lots of fun content on our blog and if there’s something specific you want us to talk or write about, just let us know! This blog is for YOU so feel free to always write in the comment section below with suggestions and comments of course.

Lots of Love,

Shandi & Susie
