Gaga Ohh La La

Yesterday I had an all-day photo shoot for Mandalynn: a new swimwear line. By friend Bekah and I shot her entire summer look book with 4 different collections/looks, 1 being cover-ups. This was from look 2 which felt very much like something I've seen in a Lady Gaga video. It was quite fun to play with, especially since I had gone to her Haus of Gaga album release party the night before and the monster was still roaring inside of me haha. It felt great to get back in front of the lens, as it had been awhile with being so busy. I'm hoping more will come from this- it's shaping up to be a very busy summer. Stay tuned.

a rekindled love affair

I just returned last night from my first trip back to NYC after I left nearly 1 year ago. It was a whirlwind. The minute I got off the plane it was nonstop, go, go, go. But that's how the city is- and I squeezed in as much as I could in my 6 day vacation. I saw old friends, met new ones, went to a Kylie Minogue concert, celebrated Cinco de Mayo, had lunch at Tiffany's and dinner at Barney's, ate Magnolia cupcakes, enjoyed pizza nearly everyday, wandered around aimlessly on 5th Avenue, stumbled onto live jazz in Central Park, and ventured into Brooklyn to see old roommates and check out the flea market. It was absolutely delightful, despite the abnormally chilly weather for May; it was a nice respite from the sticky Miami summer heat. While visiting NYC is different from living there, I definitely rekindled my love for it. I was dragging my feet so much when it came time to leave yesterday that I missed my flight... I will definitely be back soon for another love affair with this wonderful city.
