Exciting things! This past weekend my good friend & KILLER artist/photographer Awol Erizku let me help assist him on a photo shoot at Afro Punk Festival for Vogue.com!! It was a long and awesome day, and we got to photograph so many cool, interesting people. Can't thank Awol enough for the opportunity and for always looking out for me!
Heeelllo ! This past Wednesday I was invited to check out Sally Hansen's new Triple Shine nail polish at the Teen Vogue offices for a little ~nail party~ ! Here are some photos from the event, and they took a bunch there too so I'm hoping I'll come across them somewhere so I can share them with you guys!
So I've been making videos lately! I wanted to give a little background on where I'm coming from with these and show you guys my own video inspirations, from beauty YouTubers to Vimeo gurus and more.
Jenn Im is a fashion & beauty YouTuber who I came across just this summer. Her channel is actually what made me want to start my own! She styles outfits, reviews brands, and gets to travel around the world for different beauty conferences, music festivals, meet & greets etc. And this is her actual JOB now! Whaaaat, the dream. I've definitely been following her lead in my first few videos. She also has the best taste in music and is just the friendliest, most watchable person ever.

I've been a huge fan and follower of Scott Foley since high school. Scott is a director/editor who makes really beautiful, creative little videos out of his own life and travels. I absolutely love his editing style, too - he always keeps things unexpected and fresh. He often uses his girlfriend as a muse and they make a real dreamy team. The art major in me rly luvs his stuff ;)
