One of the many clients I work with is Jack Rogers. (I became a huge fan of their sandals shortly after I was hired by them to do some artwork.) Wanted to share the new artwork I did for them this month. Hope you enjoy the springy feel of the new JR Girl. You can find it on twitter, FB and other Jack Rogers' pages.
This month I was lucky to be a small part of a big event.
A local client commissioned this fashion illustration for a Chanel-themed party.
The illustration wears the gown her daughter will wear to the event!
We are also having the original blown up to create a very chic sign in board for the party.
Will take some photos ;)
Need something commissioned for your next stylish event?
Also, one of the blog contributors sent this over to me on my birthday and I just thought it was so sweet that I had to share. Will definitely make step me birthday greetings up a notch. ps) Thanks everyone for your birthday tweets, posts, notes and emails. It made my day- I mean that.
It's time. The sun is slowly headed our way and it's time to think about getting healthy.

This past year in my career has changed considerable and I have been a part of several photo shoots for editorials and publications. My favorite part about each shoot is getting to wear false eyelashes. I wear them for the rest of the day after each shoot is done. It's amazing how a little extra lash can give you a little extra confidence!
Searching online, I noticed many false eyelashes are over the top. While a very pretty concept, I don't want to wear glitter and stars on my lashes. I asked makeup artist Beke Beau to share a few of her favorite false lashes for real women. I love her breakdown and wanted to share below.
Ardell 110 - my go-to lash that suits almost everyone on earth and are what I call my "training" strip lashes for the newbies.
Red Cherry 747S - these lashes come in four lengths, but the "S" is another standard lash that works on most. A bit fuller and more curly than the 110.
Ardell Fairies - a long, spiky lash I use for more believable drama - this one's good for deep-set eyes.
Red Cherry 01 - the most dramatic of the "natural" lashes.
Ardell 116 - another long lash that's not too thick. It has a lot of swoop on the outer corners.
Red Cherry 218 - I used a lot of these when I did a shoot for a strip club. Enough said, but they're not ridiculous. (ha! why I love Beke.)
Ardell Accent 301 - a half lash that works one women with thick but short lashes. Fairly easy to apply because of the shorter length.
Red Cherry or Ardell Individual Lashes in Short Flair Black - once you get the hang of applying these, it's easy to pop a few on. I don't necessarily concentrate at the outer corners but tend to space them evenly across the lash line for more length and fullness.
(let the glue set for about 30 seconds before placing them. At the end of the party, gently peel them off after cleansing the face. Remove whatever glue might be left on the lash line with something emollient like baby or jojoba oil.)
1) red cherry 01, 2) red cherry 218, 3) red cherry 747s, 4) red cherry short flairs.
Decided I would show you some shots of my still-in-progress town home
since the rugs are from Rugs USA and they are having 20-35% off right now.
You can find the gray surya rug here, and the navy morrocan trelis rug is on sale, here.
Ok, so neon is having more than a moment at this point. It's everywhere in stores, right alongside pastels and primary colors. I dare you try attempt to find anything navy right now. Instead of buying tons and tons of color this spring I decided to pick up just a few brights. One of those pick-ups includes these neon pink shorts. Will be such a nice pop to my spring/summer wardrobe.
Instead of pairing mine with more color like so many are suggesting, I am going with a classic olive tee and leather flip flops. Much more "me".
(I wear nude polish whenever I wear a bright, If you don't want to go all-nude with nails, try essie's topless-and-barefoot on your hands, and clambake on toes.)
How will you wear your brights?
Neon shorts here, The only olive pocket tee I can even find here
(told you , it's colors or nothing it stores), earrings
I visited the Maybelline website last week after seeing a few products that caught my eye in the tents at nyfw. I didn't have time to ask questions to the reps so thought I'd check out the website and see what's new.
I am so glad I did and urge my readers to check this out too. There is a section of makeup lessons there that I just adore. Such fresh looks, and easy step by step video. I can't wait to pop into the drug store and try some of this product after seeing this!
