Hit Like A Girl

So I golf, I don’t really talk too much about it because it’s not really what my blog is about but I do it. I’ve been golfing since I was 9 or 10 years old, been a member at the same club forever and played on the golf team in high school. I’m well aware…

Retail Marketing- Parsons X Teen Vogue

The featured image of this post is a Wilfred Storefront from Holiday 2015; I was drawn to it when I began this course because of the textures, and warm neutral tones.

Shoots are exciting. From the drawing board to the final image selection it’s about finding inspiration. Taking a theme or vision and bringing it to life through fashion, hair, and makeup is a rewarding experience. In this issue, we wanted to play with the traditional ideas of prom.

The Faroe Islands

Bundled up in a dry suit, on a hundred-year-old Canadain schooner after having fished for lunch in the North Atlantic, the last thing I thought would happen would be to watch a fourteen-year-old light up a cigarette, pulled out of a plastic baggy to protect it from the damp and launch into a personal epic…
