Internet! It’s been a minute since I gave some love to my beloved blog.

Summer is off to a rainy beginning here in Brooklyn, but that hasn’t been slowing me down. Recent days have been all about creative projects, streamlining and planning big things.

I finally hugged one of my heroines, Gala Darling, at her book release party in Brooklyn! She gave an uplifting talk in the basement of a bookstore, complete with confetti canons and costume jewelry.

Also, I booked tickets to Miami this month, since I haven’t really escaped the city on a plane in over a year. Time to sway with the palm trees…

Anyway!

Here’s what I’ve been up to…

 I moved to a cute apartment in Bushwick with a jungle-tastic backyard, high ceilings, a walk-in closet and a sewing studio. The walls in my room are aqua blue. I love it.

 I’m working for John Varvatos as a full time copywriter. It’s a creative, exciting, intense place to work!

 I’ve been invited back to show a Bombay Mermaid collection for the Sisters on the Runway 2015 fashion show in Union Square this October. I’ve enlisted an extremely talented stylist, Lesley DeSantis.

 7 of my DIY projects from this blog are featured on Cut Out + Keep, an adorable DIY site based in the UK. See all of the projects and read my interview here.

 I was accepted to the Bushwick Daily writing fellowship, so you’ll be able to see my writing there for the next three months.

 I’m neck deep in the process of launching an amazing, amazing new website with my friend Krystal, which will be an exciting resource for young creative people who value travel, innovation, and freedom.

 I also launched a cute little side project—a digital Etsy shop full of downloadable goodness for organization and productivity.

There’s so much more, but those are the cliff notes.

By the way, even when I’m not blogging often, I’m still all over instagram!

Until next time… stay cool, NYC!

(Seriously. It’s so hot outside.)
