MY COOKBOOK SHOOT: BEHIND THE SCENES


Hey dolls!! I've been very absent over here due to the production of my cookbook. This past month has been a roller coaster of exhilarating proportions . . . here's a sneak peek.

CHIANG MAI TRAVEL GUIDE


Chiang Mai, the jewel-like city of Northern Thailand, beckons new and repeat visitors alike. I was here as a kid with my dad and loved coming back. It's a charming city -- manageable in size, relaxed in pace, with delicious regional cuisine (lots of coconut, YUM!!), elegant hotels, gorgeous temples and day hikes that will make your heart skip a beat. We were there in November visiting old friends . . . and we fell in love with the place. I photographed a story about it for Conde Nast Traveler too. Here are my recommendations for where to stay, eat and hike.

GIRLS INJUSTICE

It is with great pride and a heavy heart I'm interrupting the regular program of snacks, flowers and travel here to present Richard Ross' (aka "dad") latest endeavor: GIRLS INJUSTICE. Over the past 8 years, my father has documented, discovered, and exposed the United States' treatment of incarcerated juveniles through his project, Juvenile Injustice. For this latest book, he's focused on those who suffer the most within this deeply flawed system --the girls. Read on for more info and to view more of his images.

FLOWER HOMEWORK, WEEK 2

Here's my second arrangement for my Floral 101 online course I'm taking with Chelsea Fuss of Frolic! through Nicole's Classes. This is a larger project, bundled up into a low copper bowl I found at the thrift shop near our studio -- I have a lot of room for improvement, but I'm enjoying every moment of working with fluffy fleurs and wonderful-smelling greenery.

CAMPARI CAMPAIGN: WOMEN & WHISKIES

Last month I got the chance to work with AfterAll Studio to create images for Campari's Women & Whiskies campaign. We worked on this lookbook of sorts a year ago as well . . . The updated images are just darling and the shoot was a dream.
