Cooking is Stylish: Plated

Lately work has been so busy. By the time I get home to sit down and blog I am tired of looking at a monitor or do anything else for that matter like cook dinner. So I decided to try Plated, a subscription box program where you have your choice of meat fish or vegetarian recipes. That come with all the ingredients that you need and step-by-step instructions to cook them. Now if you follow my blog you already know that I am a self proclaimed chef. And enjoy cooking and making my own recipes very much. But sometimes I’m not inspired nor have the brainpower to come up with something to cook for dinner so for the last week or so. Plated has definitely saved the day. Continue reading

Locally Fresh: Juan M…

The idea was to put two people together, give some guidelines, and let the magic happen. I had the pleasure to work with @MissJuan (Juan) and @ErkthaJerk (Erk) on this shoot. I came up with this idea on a whim curious to see what my results would be. I have always admired Juan’s personal style, it is always so effortless. She makes a fitted not look like a joke and I am always intrigued with the combination of her outfits. She really does just wake up like that…and it’s great. To shoot Juan I called on the multi talented Erk who does an amazing job of capturing the essence of a subject and not ruin it by airbrushing the hell out of the final photo. Our Sunday adventure was so much fun. We almost got hit by cars, hawked by strangers, and climbed on an old school truck. I am so proud to show you the sum of our work. Check out my interview with Juan after the drop!

I’ve Been Workin, I’ve Been Workin…..

So I’ve been slacking on blogging. Which is not cool. But I’ve been busy! I had the opportunity to style a photo shoot for one of my favorite brands Marshall Nash. It’s always a good time on set when working with JaEvon and she always casts cool models to work with. The vision was inspired by the movie “The Lost Boys” mixed with girly elements. Bringing these two ideas together and making it modern was a fun challenge to take on. I can’t wait to share the final edits with you guys. I always get super proud and excited to show work that I was apart if and see how a group of people contribute to an end result. Check out some behind the scenes below!
