I'm back, I'm back

Hello everyone. I've had a very odd last few weeks, to say the least. A lot of negatives, a lot of positives, and everything is sort of starting to balance and peter off at last, I think, at least as best as it can considering the way my life goes ...

Anyway, I'm back from a quick little jaunt to New York to cover Fashion Week for xoJane, which was much too short but it was lovely to see everyone. I work with some amazing people, and everyday I am so grateful to work for one of my lady-heroes, Jane Pratt, who is just so incredibly warm and inspiring and giving and I am consistently in awe of the opportunities I have been given this year.

I also finally got to meet Ms. Tavi Gevinson, which was wonderful since we've been corresponding only via e-mail for so long and working together, and I've been so thrilled to give my little bit to Rookie so far and happy to see it turning out so well, and so quickly embraced by girls and boys of all ages, all types, all over. It's just great to be working with such smart, genuine people across the board. I'm a blessed person.

It was also nice to finally meet Kristina of The Rebel Waltz & Twee Valley High, and Nicolette of Nicolette Mason. Talented and lovely girls who I have "known" so long via that wonderful bit of technology that is LiveJournal and it's just such a treat to meet people in person after so long, and see that they're real and lovelier than you'd ever imagine.

Oh gosh, you're probably getting a stomach ache from how sickly sweet this all is, but sometimes I just have to write down all of the things I am grateful for, because it's so easy to forget. So so easy, and I never want to forget.

Anyway, I have many photos to go through but I thought I'd post a quick few and just update everyone on what's been going on. I still have that "program this blog" thing running and I will get to it, sooner than later I hope.

I've completely forgotten where I took this photo from but here I am, my beaded collar askew, on the night of the Advanced Style party at the Ace Hotel.

Kristina and I.

A photo of my outfit that night. Everything is vintage. The dress was wool which was a poor choice because it was so hot but oh well, I guess I succumbed to fashion over comfort at that point.

Again, thank you for reading. It's funny to be here with this blog now for three years going, a blog I thought initially was just going to be a food blog, and now I just talk about anything and people read it and communicate with me, and it's just a really great little world I've stumbled into. So thank you to everyone who's been reading from the start! You're great.


P.S. there's still time for you to score goodies from Bioré.
P.P.S. I just realized this blog's 3rd birthday is on Monday, September 19th. Three years! I was guesstimating up there, didn't realize how close I was.
