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

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.
