Over the trip I turned 18 (yaaay!)
My birthday present to myself was a tube of Rouge Volupté lipstick in Red Muse from Yves Saint Laurent. I love how chic the packaging alone is, it looks like a piece of vintage jewelry.

I'm still in the process of getting over calling fries "chips" and talking in £ and P.

"Okay, now pose like an idiot!"

Thrifted tunic, (thrifted) Gap cardigan, Lucky Brand belt & bag, Kimchi & Blue boots

You know what's better than a lovely, sunny 70º spring afternoon?
Yeah, me neither...

So I should explain the belt pouch. I initially bought the bag/belt together not thinking I would ever use the bag,
but man, that thing is helpful for when I go out biking since I don't have to deal with an obnoxious crossbody satchel!
I usually wear the belt pretty lose when it's at my waist, I don't want it to look TOO much like a gross fannypack :]


I'll be in London for the next week for spring break! My first trip abroad!
My friends & I are going to be making Monty Python jokes the whole time like a bunch of idiot Americans
(although I am pretty good at being an idiot American as is)

Unfortunately, however, I'll be spending my birthday on the plane ride home...


If you live in London and know of any awesome places to shop or visit, feel free to drop me an email!

It was February, and I had one of the most amazing and exciting opportunities come my way since I started modeling back in 2006. Michael Sakas & Michael Donnor are photographers that on occasion come together to collaborate on photographic projects, and both have a talent for creating a sense of grit, reality and ethereal sensuality in their works. Sakas contacted me asking if I could model for the RedHouse Project and I couldn't say no.


The 2-day project was shot entirely on film. It consisted of myself & 3 other models living it up and shooting in Donner's AMAZING house in Holland, NY. Unfortunately, I can only have the pictures of myself up on here, so to see the other gorgeous girls, click on the links I gave to Sakas & Donner's websites.


The idea was that we were four friends staying in a cottage to get away and have a weekend of fun, being youths in the snow and all. The weekend consisted of different scenarios from lounghing around the house, to sitting in a make-shift hot tub constructed out of an actual old bathtub and a wood burning fire underneath. In short, it was an absolute blast.

AND OMG YOU GUYS THE CLOTHES. THE CLOTHES. Okay, so the stylist Molly Hoeltke was totally kickass and had some fantastic vintage clothes for the shoot. That green silk dress that I'm wearing is from the 30's, it was so delicate and lovely. She also threw in some of my own clothes that I wore to the shoot (you might recognize that cream/black blazer, the aviators and that striped tank!)


SO yeah, for a more in-depth look at what the shoot was about, head on over to http://www.sakasphoto.com/REDHOUSEPROJECT.html.


Maybe one of these days I'll post some other shots from my modeling portfolio :D

The weather has been obscenely warm lately! It hit 80º yesterday, which is truly, truly strange for Buffalo in April.

I've been spending my afternoons either reading like mad (an oxymoron, I know) or going out and getting ice cream just as an excuse to wear a sun dress outside!

HOLY CRAP SUPER EXCITING NEWS!

I have been accepted to Parsons The New School for Design for photography! Looks like that's where I'll be going in the fall! College ahoy!
