Good luck, Kara!

My beautiful Lookbook model, Kara Erwin, has moved to NYC to be a model with Elite Models! I was so lucky to find her on ModelMayhem when she was still freelancing and living here in Boston.

I'm quite tickled that her pictures for my Lookbook are in her Elite portfolio. She just did a shoot for Nicole Miller, woot!

Best of luck to a successful career Kara!! I know you have what it takes. I can't stop raving about her and Taschka. They shot my Lookbook pictures for 6 hours straight, and was full of energy and working it from beginning to end!

Do visit my Lookbook to see the results of their amazing work!

olympics mania

Like everyone else, I've been utterly captivated by the Olympics.

I've always been an athlete and was the youngest player on my home country's national volleyball team before I decided to leave and come to the US for my studies. Of course, we were never even close to good enough for the Olympics =), but I know the amount of blood, sweat and tears every Olympian has invested into their training. Even though there are those who think sports is just "games" and a trivial distraction from the real issues in the world, I savour every minute of it that I can catch.

I love the action, of course. Volleyball, gymnastics, diving, weightlifting... Have you seen weightlifting? It is heart-stirring. But I love even more the looks of pride and joy on the coaches' and athletes' faces when they perform beyond their expectations. I can tear up all day watching medal ceremonies. It really is so good for the human soul. =)

On a kind of unrelated note, I was reading about Ricky Rubio, the amazing Spanish basketball teenager who some consider to be the best player in the world outside of the NBA. When I saw his picture, all I wanted to do was to pluck his eyebrows:

Other than the Olympics, I've been busy with work, work, work these past few weeks.

I recently did a photoshoot with a local Boston glossy, and might be a featured designer for their Fall fashion issue, I'm so excited!

Will be trying to wrap up a bunch of work this weekend and the coming week in preparation for my friend's bridal shower and bachelorette party next weekend in NYC! I am making the jewelry for her and all the other bridesmaids, so that will be my after-work task for this week. I have a design idea that will be pretty and quite customisable, so I am hoping that the other girls like it. After that is done, I am really looking forward to unwinding next weekend!

I haven't had a holiday all summer, and so I'm going to treat this as my little summer weekend getaway. With Per Se and Bungalow 8 on the itinerary, this is probably the swankiest weekend I will have in my entire life unless someday Scarlett Johansson wears my jewelry and I become a celebrity designer. heehee.

Ok, got to wrap up work so I can go back home in time to see Phelps clinch his 8th medal. That guy is truly a freak of nature.
