301. Into the Abyss

Hello! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, got back to school on Sunday and jumped right into tech for Abyss (6-7 hours of rehearsal a night doesn't lend itself well to posts!) We opened last night and it was incredible! So excited and proud to be part of this production. If you are in New Haven this weekend, come 10 minutes early and you'll most likely be able to get in off the wait list--8 more shows in the next 3 days so don't miss it!!

300. Magic

300th post! It's magic!

299. Gold Dust Woman

I have always loved Fleetwood Mac, but for some reason over this vacation I have become truly obsessed. I'm playing their songs on repeat, reading co-producer Ben Caillat's book "Making Rumours",  and even got tickets to see them live this June with my mom and sis (!!!!). 

 I am especially enchanted by Stevie Nicks, though--the mystical gypsy queen hippie rock goddess who added so much of that intangible magic to the band. She wore billowing chiffon dresses, platform boots, and decorated her half-moon tambourine with ribbons and scarves. Rhiannon, Silver Springs, Dreams, Gypsy, and I Don't Want to Know were all written by her and are all some of my favorites. Also, can't get enough of her and Lindsey Buckingham </3 <3

"Stevie danced around the room to the music with her arms above her head. I didn't know it at the time, but she believed that she had magical powers. Later, I understood that she probably thought she was chanting up a good mix from Richard and me."
-Ben Caillat, Making Rumours


"Much of the time, Stevie sat curled up on the couch behind us in the control room, with a shawl around her neck and Ginny at her feet. Sometimes she took baby tokes off a joint and drank tea. She could sit for hours on that couch, observing and chatting; she loved to laugh. I thought she was especially cute when she was laughing. She was so great back then, really down to earth. What a change she would go through."

297. eff.Y.bee - Behind the Scenes

Had the MOST fun day yesterday--was lucky enough to be in pictures for the Spring 2013 look book for the beautiful, handmade jewelry brand, eff.Y.bee

My good friend Sam who I met summers and summers ago as a fellow Charlotte Ronson intern got me involved, and the shoot took place on the roof of her wonderfully whimsical apartment in Tribeca. eff.Y.Bee is an acronym for 'follow your bliss' and, as it says on their website, it is a brand "that seeks to inspire both self expression and the idea to get out there and pursue what you love." <333.

I only have some quick behind the scene shots for now, but the actual photos will hopefully be up on their website soon (and I'll of course keep you updated with posts of my own :P)! Definitely check out their website now and get your hands on their jewelry, they have some really special pieces. Thanks again to Alyssa, Sam, Laura, and everyone involved for such a fun early spring day!! :D
