You read it right. For the first time ever I’ll perform along side other talented vocalists at Davenports Piano Bar Cabaret, September 2nd at 7:00pm in Chicago. And for someone who’s used to the shower a mic stand is a big deal. If you’ve been following me you probably know I sing in all my videos (but if I’m breaking the news right now just head over to my Youtube channel for samples) and that I can’t do without music. But performing live is new scary territory.
Thankfully, I’ve been working with two incredible vocal coaches (check them out here) and that put me at ease. Back to the show, it’s a collection of No 1 summer hits top 40 to Broadway. Till then what I’m singing (and wearing) will be kept secret but if you really wanna know, make reservationshere under Cabaret and I’ll see you then!
And that’s what I wore to a fun afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo, where we filmed the new video look book “Jar of Hearts”. It was hot and I was lazy, so comfort took the lead here. Wondering about the bright orange top? Rechillier is the technique, craftmenship that originated in northeast Brazil. It transitioned to mainstream in the past few years and now you can find it pretty much anywhere in the country. Definitely one of my favorite international pieces.
Ever since my husband and I moved to Chicago the Lincoln Park Zoo has become one of our top rated things to do on the weekends. During our last trip, we filmed another video lookbook edited by the sound of “Jar of Hearts”. Push play to watch:
Perfect days like this are what Chicago summers are famous for. If you haven’t visited, you must. Little insider tip: entrance to the zoo is totally free!
It’s been a few months since the first diy brush holder post shown here. That’s why I’ve decided to repeat the dose and show again (this time in stop-motion) how to create a fabulous makeup brush solution that’s budget friendly. You can opt for something smaller or larger (always your call) depending on how intense your brush collection is. Mine is pretty average. Take a look!
For every video my husband and I put together there are always those we have to cut out because something didn’t go right. And now you know what I’m gonna say next: bloopers! Instead of letting it all go to waste I thought you might enjoy this
Haven’t seen the original retro-beachwear video yet? Here you go!
Last weekend we went down to Michigan City to enjoy a day under the sun on Lake Michigan. I probably never had as much fun shooting (both these and the video lookbook) and was even happier after seeing the images we were able to capture.
Wanna see the whole retro-inspired look in action? Wish granted:
