HAPPY FRIDAY

12

i just wanted to stop by and say happy friday…what are your plans this weekend? i’m packing up again and going to italy, where i am positive i will have too much pizza, pasta and red wine. cliche, but oh so true. i’ve been feeling really great so far on this trip. before i left i was wondering if i would feel homesick or lonely, but i’ve been meeting a lot of new people and hearing their interesting stories and accents. and when i’m by myself, i just enjoy the quiet and time to think. i do miss my friends and my cats, but happy to hear they are doing great with the people staying in my apartment. last night we went to a few bars in lausanne and got a good leg workout from all of the steep hills there. and i’ve spent too long trying to pronounce the “r” sound in french, it’s a hard one to master (if you’re me.)

it may sound boring, but i always like to do things like go to the grocery stores when i’m in other countries. just to observe the people in everyday life, the foods they eat, the differences from the US. i didn’t plan anything on my trip besides my accommodations…i just take it day by day. and luckily i can still be on a somewhat normal work schedule remotely.

anyways, enough rambling. i hope your weekend if full of relaxation or fun. i have a few days by myself in tuscany if you have any recommendations i would love it! xx -bri

ON TOUR WITH MEGHAN TRAINOR

you may remember a few months ago, i worked on the set design for meghan trainor’s lips are movin’ video? well, a few weeks ago HP gave me the opportunity to meet back up with meghan in new york and interview her about the art direction of her very first tour! i actually listen to meghan’s album all the time on my way to work, she has such catchy songs and a great voice, so it was fun to hang out again…

we filmed a little behind the scenes video about the interview that you can watch below. we went on stage and took a look at meghan’s props and i also got to pass out a bunch of masquerade lips to all of her screaming fans in line before her show. it was so cute to see how excited they all were. (ps, make your own lips and tag #bendtherules on instagram!)

and i only covered one stop of the tour, there are tons of episodes about the costumes, dancers and more on HP’s youtube channel. here’s a look at our episode if you’d like to check it out…

10 THINGS / BEING HAPPY ALONE

disco

when i was younger i remember always wanting to be around people. my mom said one of my friends would leave after a sleepover and i would already be asking for the next friend to come over. i guess people have always been my safe space. i always felt bored, depressed or anxious when it was just me alone with my thoughts. i was never good at goodbyes and i hated when the fun came to an end. so imagine my fear when i ended up single and living alone. there were a few days there that the silence was unbearable. i would fill each evening with a social activity so i didn’t have to face it.

and then one day i realized. this IS my reality so i better learn to like it. or even love it.

and i’ve actually seen myself change over the past few months. slowly but surely. here’s a few things that helped…

hi friends. we’ve almost made it through the week again. i’m headed to san diego for a baby shower for one of my college friends tomorrow. so a little reuniting is in order. i watched the jimi hendrix netflix documentary last night and loved it. most of all, i couldn’t take my eyes off of his badass style. i seriously want to go through a jimi inspired fashion phase! floral on floral, flares, fringe, colors. so good.
