How did your day go? It may have been incredible but maybe it won’t match up to the day Kelsey Merritt had. She spent the past 24 hours going on press trips as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hit newsstands today. You’ve probably seen the cover featuring the out-of-retirement Tyra Banks.

Merritt is this year’s “Rookie of the Year,” a title which has launched the careers of many famed models. Today, she did her duty of going about different publications to promote the issue.

First, she shared her look which featured Keepsake the Label and Stila’s Beauty Boss Lip Gloss in Win-Win.

She then stopped by Daily Mail. Afterward, she reported to Sports Illustrated NOW. The last stop was US Weekly. Right now, as we lay our heads to sleep in the Philippines, Merrit is on her way to Miami with her fellow SI girls.

Merritt shared teasers of her SI shoot last February, done in The Bahamas. Her “Rookie of the Year” citation came shortly after walking the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Have fun, Kelsey! We’re rooting for you!
