hi everyone. happy hump day. i’m going to pop-up magazine tonight at the ace hotel and looking forward to it. i’ve heard great things! have you been? i also went on a tinder lunch date today. it’s so interesting meeting new people, hearing their stories, watching how different everyone is. who knows what will come out of this new dating thing, but i must say, it’s kinda fun!
i hope the rest of your week involves giant cinnamon rolls and red lipstick…xo bri
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!

it’s been a while since i just talked to you guys…told you what’s been happening with me behind the scenes. so here we go…
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!

hi friends. i’m laying in my hotel bed in brooklyn after eating far too many meatballs here this evening. a very worthwhile food coma. i’m here just for a short trip to teach blogshop, but i wish i was staying longer because the weather is beautiful. finally i don’t have to wear summer clothes and deal with the LA heat.
also it’s officially fall and i’m feeling the changes already creeping in. i’m ready for exciting new projects, planning travel, and maybe even some cute boys if i’m lucky? one can wish. happy fall everyone. -bri
ps isn’t this picture of audrey great?
