I don’t like the “b” word. I don’t like to use it, and I would rather avoid talking about it at all costs. I like working, I like improving my brand, and I like making money. To do that, I’m usually at my desk, beyond the normal amount of time as the average American. As most people know, I’ve been rather of a hermit the last couple of weeks (maybe even months). I’m in a get it done mindset. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite figured out how to include writing into that mix.
So I figured I’d share a few things that I’ve been up to:
I find my clients are very inspiring, talented people. I’ve been blown away with everything each one offers, and I was very excited to help them with their branding and site redesigns.
- A Sweat Life: Jeana Anderson is the editor behind this guide to a healthy, purposeful life. She showcases the best gyms in the area as well as give awesome tutorials on workouts you can do at home. Jeana also sets up these monthly workout-networking sessions called #sweatworking. They are unbelievable – so much fun and you get some great goodies. I’m excited for her August one at Enrgi Fitness.
- The Little Foxes: Ashlee Piper is the editor behind this advocacy site and resource. Ashlee provides insights on how anyone can incorporate cruelty-free products into their everyday life. It includes everything from food to fashion and beauty. I really admire her approach to it. Most “vegans” have a militant attitude towards it, but Ashlee’s approach is very appealing and will make you a little bit more conscious about your choices.
- The Style Letters: I had the pleasure of helping Maria MacNamara redesign and transfer her site from Blogger to WordPress. Maria’s site is focuses on all aspects of style in a very endearing, passionate way. Her redesign coordinated with her feature in Redbook magazine. We snapped photographs as part of the redesign. I really love the one’s that I shot at 52Eighty.
- Caravan of Style: Before I left for Madison, Monica and I wanted to revisit some elements of her site, mainly color. I used this pillow from CB2 as inspiration – to add more gold elements with a softer blush and black and white. Despite being a hermit for the past couple of weeks, I’m still on trend, because my work from home uniform is all about sweatshirts.
I did manage to play hooky one afternoon. I went to the pool with Sam after I snapped some photographs for her. These photographs were my favorite. It’s the Kate Spade dress on a green background: it’s so fresh, fun and classic.
While I have been trying to get it all done, I’ve managed to still read to decompress. I finished Nora Ephron’s I Feel Bad About My Neck & Other Thoughts On Being a Woman which I loved and #GirlBoss, also loved. It’s been a good reading month, and I’m really excited for those future Wearing Lit posts.
Lots of cool things are going on, and I’m trying to soak them all in and enjoy it. This month has a lot on the agenda, and I can’t wait to share with you the other things! Stay tuned!
