Hellooo!

Hello! Ok so I admit, every time I sit down to blog I end up working on Lonny instead!! So I apologize that it's been awhile, but I assure you it will be worth the wait come February 10th when we launch our third issue ;) Our team has been working around the clock (in fact we're all here in our new midtown office as we speak!) and we're about 27 soy lattes away from hitting publish and finally sharing our hard work with you :) Can't wait!! In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you a few side projects I've been working on, such as the new Rubie Green photography from Paris (!) which will be launching soon, as well as some fun eco-product picks from Design Milk and The Daily Obsession below.

I also recently tried my hand at styling for Vogue Bambini alongside photographer Drew Sackheim, and was thrilled to finally see the story in print in the December issue! Known for his work in kids fashion, Sackheim has been said to capture the "in-between moments, effectively bridging the gap between subject, environment and artist.” Having never worked on a shoot with children prior to this, I soon realized that these "in-between moments" are precisely the time when the best imagery is captured. Some of my favorites of Drew's work can be found here . Lastly, I recently moved into a new apartment and have been scouring every flea market and thrift shop known to mankind!! My biggest feat so far has been this vintage bamboo armoire, which had a price tag hidden deep inside of it for $2,625 from an antique shop in upstate New York, but yet it was sold to me at Housing Works here in the city for a mere $365! I physically wrapped my body around it and begged Ellie to run and grab a "sold" sticker for me (haha) and have been enjoying it ever since. Can't wait to show you more in our April "green" issue of Lonny ;)

Serendipitous blog wandering--I just finished the latest Lonny magazine and felt a design high and here I find the blog of one of the masterminds behind it. I've been missing Domino but LOVE Lonny and the hole it has filled. It is so well laid out and just perfect. Your hard work is apparent. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
