it's about time i blogged again. it has been an insanely busy month, i cannot even begin to explain the stress i have been feeling. but all in all, i happy with the past month and everything i have accomplished. it feels good to see hard work pay off.
i am in the midst of starting my own photography business, nothing huge, just something to do on the side. i have been taking pictures of upcoming bands and shows, some restaurants trying to build their website, but mostly i have been focusing on my artistic stuff for my personal enjoyment.
additionally i recently began interning at Nineteenth Amendment, y'all should definitely go check out what they are doing. they are revolutionizing the fashion industry a day at a time and i am so inspired to see them fight for what they believe in.
as a start-up, they could use all the support they can get so please check them out!
this past month has been filled with shoot after shoot. my career as a stylist is taking off, and i hope i never hit a brick wall. i am learning everyday and falling in love with fashion even more than i thought possible. in the realms of fashion, photography, and art--i working harder than i ever have before to get somewhere.
(but who knows, ill probably end up a stay-at-home with nine kids...and i am perfectly content with that).
rather than bore with with the written details of the past 24 days, i would rather show you in pictures. hold on to your seats ladies and gents, and place your finger on that scroll bar.
"and those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music"
"family quarrels are bitter things. they don't go according to any rules. they're not like aches or wounds, they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material."
"young love, i feel you know me better than most and in the spite of real distance we'll always be close."
i'm a girl of many words...to put it simply, i talk a lot. but i like to think it is because i have a lot to say-- i'm a good listener as well but i enjoy sharing and debating opinions. i love hearing people's conflicting views because it provides a new perspective on how we should see the world. yes there is ignorance in this world, but sometimes ignorance is bliss. i love quotes. i love poetry. i love films. last night was the tenth academy awards in a row where i have cried. i don't know why i cry, i feel so happy for everyone receiving their awards. they must be so happy and their happiness and hard work inspires me-- not to be a movie star but to work hard and do something with my life. they should all be proud. yes, it is easy to say there are so many real heroes in this world that go unnoticed, and that is true. but the men and women who graced the stage last night are heroes in their own way, and i want to thank everyone one of them for that (and their stylists).
i was quite happy to see matthew mcconaughey win, he was spectacular in dallas buyers club. and italy deserved the win with paolo sorrentino's the great beauty. holy moly was that a good film.
my favorite gowns were on olivia wilde (valentino), emma watson (vera wang), and cate blanchett (giorgio armani). simply gorgeous.
i had a rather enjoyable sunday. helped prep dinner for an oscar party of sorts with the family. we all filled out ballots and my dad, who had only seen one oscar nominated film, managed to guess a whopping 20/24 categories correct. me, having seen all but two of the films, was rather disappointed in myself for getting 15/24 correct.
what i wore:
vintage black velvet maxi dress
jcrew leopard socks
uo camo jacket
goorin bros hat
i've spend much of this past weekend reorganizing myself--planning flights, finishing up projects, apartment searching, and getting through the giant stack of magazines i've neglected which are trapping dust on my nightstand...i'm so sorry anna wintour.
i wish everyone a fantastic week. especially those new englanders who are still lost in the mounds of snow mother nature has so relentlessly provided.
i hope everyone experiencing this snow-crazed winter with an optimistic attitude--i know it gets tough sometimes. i feel as if everyday is a snow day. i've found myself getting bored and in need of some new activities. all this baking is getting me fat. (though i'd rather be fat and bake than skinny and not eat). i'm back in nh, boston is rather problematic this season. i look forward to the day where grass can be seen again and i can wear shoes without the threat of ruining them due to heavy slush. it's hard to dress cute in such harsh weather!
here's another week in photos
aint he a cutie? god i love this little man. oh! i forgot to mention, i recently got a gig as a nanny. i am quite content, i love kids and i feel nannying will be perfect for me.
blogging in a cafe. that is what i do. im enjoying a warm croissant and the most delicious mocha latte the world has ever known on a tiny wooden round table at boston common coffee co. i'm planning my trip to the uk and catching up of some much over-due reading. (naturally its fitzgerald). i find myself writing down quotes more than actually reading. he is just so brilliant.
"Well, I can't describe her exactly--except to say that she was beautiful. She was-- tremendously alive".
"And in the end, we were all just humans...drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness"
"I wish I'd done everything on this earth with you"
Oh Fitzgerald...you make me swoon.
yesterday was a good day of picture taking, cambridge exploring, and friend hanging. a new (and very lovely) friend of mine picked me up and we went out to brunch at the friendly toast in cambridge; if you're ever in the area and looking for a good place to eat i'd definitely recommend it...just expect a long wait. we then spent the rest of the afternoon taking pictures around the charles and harvard square.
god i love harvard square. i'm apartment hunting in the area. fingers crossed i find something good!
in the evening i met with my good friend and we just took funny pictures together.
i love photographing her, we tend to be really immature when we are together but that's the fun in our friendship. everyone needs someone to laugh at their dirty jokes and awkward dance moves. it helps that she is a bombshell so photographing her is rather easy.
i'm very self critical of pictures of myself but i love this one. i think it just categorizes me perfectly. messy hair (i never do my hair), awkward stance, and double-chinned laugh. not to mention, (despite my weird thing against outfit repeating) i wear these overalls all the time. they are my favorite.
