The other day, I went to the eye doctor and discovered I needed reading glasses. It's pretty funny, when I was real little, two of the main things I wanted most in life were glasses and braces (they're like jewelry for your teeth, right??). When I was 8, I got braces. And now, I've got glasses. So in the end, I got exactly what I wanted ;)
Anyway, the eye doctor was conveniently located next to a frozen yogurt shop, so of course, it behooved my mom and I to go and check it out, you know, to test out the frozen yogurt... see how it compared with other places we've been to. A win-win situation, I tell you.

Twigs and Honey always has the best styling and photography when it comes to its collections. The new 2012 collection is most certainly the case. The photography you see here is the work of none other than the genius Elizabeth Messina (i swear, i fall in love with her photos more and more everyday).

(following in everyone else's footsteps and doing an instagram post...)
1 & 2. blue on blue, 3. what i do when i'm bored in french class, 4. poster at gap, 5. scrabble night, 6. shooting last look from this photo shoot.
I've been feeling a bit uninspired lately. Maybe it's the nice weather we've been having (HUGE change from all the rain last week), but lately, the last thing I feel like doing is sitting down and writing a blog post. I know, horrors, right? But luckily the weekend is fast approaching and this week is slowly winding down.
Yesterday my dad left on a business trip, so it's just been us girls (me and my mom + aubrey) holding down the fort (which mainly has been involving looking at juicers to buy and watching dr. oz... living on the edge, i know, right?). Today my mom and I spent the entire afternoon at Gap. I've never really shopped at Gap much, but is anyone else loving their new campaign as much as I am? Anyone, anyone?
Tomorrow I'm going to see a friend who I haven't seen in MONTHS, so that's exciting. I'm also getting my bangs trimmed tomorrow so I can finally see again! Equally exciting.
This is my last post till next week, so have a great weekend everyone and see you back here on Monday :)

My dears, I have found a new blog love: Hallo Valerie. It's written by a girl named, well, Valerie who lives in LA and loves "nostalgia, delicacies, simplicity & traveling to new lands." That breakfast looks scrumptious! I wish I could share more of my daily life with you guys... but I'm afraid much of it is quite boring and not photogenic! I'm trying to change that though :)

This week has passed by entirely all too fast. It seems as though time is perpetually fleeing from my grasp, but that's life for you, eh? I had a minor but at the same time kind of major light bulb moment when I realized the last quarter of my high school career begins in three weeks. And then what? All this talk about graduating high school, starting college, becoming a legal adult... I feel like I'm getting old, which I know is a terribly silly thing to say, because I'm not. Not even close. But the thing is I don't feel old enough to be turning 18. It's an odd feeling I can't articulate into words. Maybe you know what I'm talking about? Forgive my rhetoric.
This particular week was a rainy/cozy one filled with copious amounts of green tea and almond butter on toast (my latest addiction). Mom made pumpernickel bread this week. Can you say YUM?
Lately I've been...
... applying to colleges for next year (more on that soon!)
... trying to use my film camera more often
... picking out artwork for my bedroom (see post here)
... reading Cyrano de Bergerac for English class
... baking like a fiend (made these applesauce muffins yesterday)
What have you been doing lately?

Remember when I blogged about a very exciting photo shoot I was doing last month and was super vague about it? Well, here it is! In February, I was commissioned by Jaclyn of Audrey Grace, a pop-up shop coming to NYC next week to do a photo shoot for her boutique. For the months leading up to the shoot, Jaclyn and I brainstormed up suitable concepts that fit the 'Audrey Grace' motif. We finally settled on the story of 'The Dollkeeper.' I am forever fascinated with exploring all facets of the life of dolls (see my other doll shoot here). In the story of 'The Dollkeeper,' Amy, the model plays the part of a doll who is held captive by Brad, the dollkeeper, who keeps her for his own selfish longing. So there is a bit of a melancholy undertone.
I had been dying to do a shoot at this location: Big Daddy's Antiques, which I scouted last year by happenstance, and voila! I finally did. Big Daddy's Antiques is pretty magical to say the least... sort of like an artist's paradise (which is actually a complete understatement. you really need to see it real life). I mean, they played Beatles music and let us take over their store for the entire day. Not to mention their name stems from a character named Big Daddy in Tennessee Williams' play 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.' Plus, they're just awesome in general for having so much pretty stuff all. in. one. place. Kudos to you, Big Daddy, for being so cool.

It's hard to look at Té Chichi's Spring 2012 catalog and believe it's spring here. You see, the weather report looks like this right now. But pretty soon, I'm hoping we get some springlike weather so that life can look somewhat as depicted in these photographs (specifically the first photograph if you ask me. pretttttyyy cozy).
