HELLO THERE

12

hi there. how’s your december been treating you so far? i spent my thanksgiving sitting around with friends for 3 days, eating and drinking…it was a much needed break. now i’m feeling ready to jump back into december and finish a bunch of projects before we go off the grid at the end of the year. there’s been a couple of fun press things happening this week:

• i’ve been getting cute texts and emails from people that spotted me in this TV commercial.
• i did a little video with nordstrom on gift giving.
• there is a full page loloi rug ad (here) with my home in elle decor, domino, and house beautiful. yay!
• you can spot me in this MTV interview on air.
on the personal side of life…i’ve been going out on dates here and there. just for fun and to TRY it. even though i haven’t been on any dates that made me fall head over heels for some guy, they have all actually been really fun and easy. brunch, coffee, matinees…it’s kind of a good social exercise! speaking of movies, i saw birdman and really enjoyed it. i’ve also been (trying) to get back into working out. i’m testing out pop physique now, which i like…but boy is it hard to get motivated to go sometimes! but i always feel so good when i go, it relieves my stress and gives me a good mental break.
i hope you all have a great week back to reality. lots of love. -bri

MEGHAN TRAINOR VIDEO PROJECT

last week was such a blur! i was brought on to the meghan trainor “lips are movin” video to help with the set designs and art direction of the video. honestly, this was one of those projects that i wasn’t sure i was ready for. it was a huge production, i was excited about it, but also nervous! after some thought, i decided to just go for it and make it work. you can see a bunch of behind the scenes and the actual music video after the jump!

i met with director philip andelman & production designer maxwell orgell (both these guys have worked on such amazing projects!) and got a feel for the concept of the video. from there, i came up with a bunch of mood boards and ideas for the sets. we wanted to keep it very colorful, playful and fun (luckily, right up my alley) then, maxwell and his team made some of those ideas become a reality. it was really great collaborating with them!

I GUESS I’M TRYING TINDER?

i’ve always been hesitant about online dating. i’ve always just pictured meeting and it being very awkward. but SO many people i know have been on tinder or okcupid and actually have gone on somewhat normal dates. (mixed with some pretty hilarious encounters as well) so i figured, hey why not at leeeeeast sign up and see what it’s all about, right? i’m single, i should try new things.

i must admit it’s pretty entertaining to sit on tinder with your friends and swipe left left left with commentary. and sometimes you even swipe RIGHT which is very exciting. (for those of you that don’t know, that means you think they are hot or cool or whatever.)

for the most part, it’s a lot of guys who send you creepy messages (although i did get one that said “is your name google, because you have everything i’m searchin for” which i thought was pretty funny.) a few dudes that take pictures with selfie sticks, try to act too cool in their profile, and do NOT know how to take a profile pic.

but who knows, maybe there’s hope? have you had any luck on it? i’d love to hear about it!
