I had a really exciting opportunity come my way recently– I’ll share what I can about it!
I worked with BlogHer and a cosmetic company on 4 videos showing a variety of “looks”. The production crew was a lot of fun, and very gracious/patient/helpful/kind as I struggled through it. Plus, Caitlin, the makeup artist who assisted me (she could see how it looked in the monitor and made any adjustments–such a nice thing to have someone help with) was both talented and very helpful as well.
It was a long day for everyone, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Here are some “behind the scenes” shots from Caitlin.
These were only two of the four looks, and like I mentioned above–I’ll share more details when I can.
And for those who don’t follow on twitter or instagram, here are a few snapshots from the rest of my time in NYC! The weather could not have been better. It was beautiful and sunny both days.
Tuesday was spent behind the camera the entire day, so all of these photos were taken on Wednesday.
Mr. Softee is just the best. I enjoyed this thoroughly. And nothing, nothing, makes you feel cooler than standing on the sidewalk by yourself eating an ice cream cone. #totallyworthit
I had a lovely lunch with Maura at RealSimple.com, and we chatted about some upcoming projects!
My friend Crystal (remember her from this post?) is so kind and hospitable. I stopped in the Waldorf Astoria to say “hi” and she gave me a behind the scenes tour of the kitchens, gave me delicious cupcakes, and showed me a few other “secret” places in the hotel. I wish I had more time to hang with her!
I finished the day with dinner at Pret A Manger. It was delicious!
New York City is really a pleasure to visit. This trip triggered so many memories from my trip with Justin last year and I’m hoping we can make it back here again soon.
I’m looking forward to sharing the final projects with you all when I can!
