Hands up who left home and got out of quarantine? I did for the first time last week. Though technically the first time was June 14th when I went to a BLM protest. On this day I met with a friend we spent the day at local park, got tacos and then headed to the docks to end the day and cool off. I hope you enjoying following me on my first day out. And here’s to a safe and happy summer…
Happy July everyone, can’t believe it, but we are already almost a week in of the month of July. I have not yet been to the beach so it seems odd to me that we almost halfway through summer. I generally do not wear a lot of makeup in the summer and I generally stick to neutrals but I have been wanting to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. So to that end I purchased the Colourpop’s Blush palette, which is my first Colourpop item that I bought along with one of their Just a Tint lippies.
Here is part two of my photo series from the Black Lives Matter protest I attended on Sunday June 14th. As I explained in my last post I decided to post these photos in black and white. In some ways I find black and white photos to be more expressive when it comes to profound news events like this. With black and white photography you are less distracted by color and advertising. The simplicity of black and white helps to reinforce and focus in on the subject matter, distilling it down to shapes and forms, to lightness and darkness, and the under lying emotion in the moment. I hope I was able to capture that in these images.
On Sunday June 14th I went to a Black Lives Matter protest on Long Island New York. I had wanted to go to the protests in New York and Brooklyn but was worried about Covid 19 as I live with high risk people. When I learned there would be protests on Long Island I figured it would safer as there would be more room for social distancing and the crowds would not be as large. I did my best but I don’t know how successful I was at social distancing, but I kept my mask on and did the best I could.
In this quick but fun video I am going to show you five ways that I would style a pair of distressed jeans for the summer. From a nautical look to a more edgy looks I am sure one of these looks will appeal to you. Nothing new here, all outfits of the day were created by shopping my closet. Hope you enjoy!

Here is part four in my NYFW Fall 2020 street style series. Most of this was also shot outside the Michael Kors show. So much fun style and inspiration to be had. I had a chance to shoot a lot of people I admire in the fashion industry. In the last post in this series I was able to snap Tamara Kalanic a favorite influencer of mine, and in my first post and my NYFW Fall 2020 vlog I captured one of my idols Grace Coddington. In this post I snapped world famous model Binx Watson. How cool is that?
Here is part three of NYFW Fall 2020 street style. This was shot outside Michael Kors. It was a great day. Not too cold, not raining as it had been for much of this season’s shows. I met up with the other photogs I run around with, some of you may have seen them in my NYFW vlog. And the best part? I got a couple of shots of one my favorite influencers Tamara Kalinic. I watch her religiously on her You Tube channel. Here she is decked out in Michael Kors.
