Almost-Spring Cleaning

You know how it doesn't feel like you've really cleaned until you've moved some furniture around? While Spring is technically weeks away, the recent warm spell has me in a clean-up-and-clear-out mood that extends to my online home as well. This weekend, I'll be putting proverbial paper over my digital windows and rebuilding TheStyleSample.com to better reflect my updated brand. There will still be a blog, but I'm putting more focus on what I actually do--and I...

Planning a photo shoot? Here’s how to put together a shot list

This may seem like a "duh" statement, but I'll say it anyway: In order to get what you want, you have to know what you want. Right. Duh. But you'd be surprised how often clients go into a photo shoot without a clear plan. Most people have vague ideas about what they want out of a shoot, but until we can project thoughts into each others' minds Star Trek-style, a shot list is the best way to communicate exactly...

Travel // 5 Things to Do in San Diego

The weather outside may or may not be frightful, but one place isn't having these problems: San Diego. While it does, in fact, rain in Southern California (Tony Toni Tone LIED y'all), the weather is pleasingly temperate year-round. There's an ocean, of course, as well as parks, mountains, and trees with fruit on them(!) in addition to plenty of good food and fun spots to explore. Here's what you should do: 1 // TAKE THE FERRY TO...

Shopping // Gettin’ Lucky Kat

I've reached a point in my life where I just want to be comfortable. The idea of floating through life wearing pajamas and bedding--as in actual blankets and such--is extremely appealing. Meanwhile, I'm also (supposedly) an adult. Taking meetings while wrapped in a comforter is not exactly professional. Enter casual wear from the likes of Lucky Kat, a locally-based online retailer started by my friend Katie and her mother. They specialize in reasonably priced boho-chic styles...

Setting New Years Intentions

The idea of New Year's Resolutions has become a little outdated--let's be real, it's just too hard to stick to an ambitious diet and exercise regimen after years of enjoying smothered pork chops and excessive couch time. But setting goals and making plans to achieve them isn't necessarily a bad thing, so I'm approaching 2017 with intentions (*buzzword alert*) to help me progress/improve/grow as a flawed human person who's interested in being and doing better....

This Is Where to Get Your New Year’s Eve Dress

You know how sometimes you want something special to wear for a particular occasion but it doesn't make sense to break the bank just to buy an amazing dress you'll only wear once or twice? And wouldn't it be great to be able to "try before you buy" rather than desperately ordering multiple sizes in the hope that something--anything--fits properly? Enter Finery Dress Boutique, a new-ish dress rental shop in Over-the-Rhine. Owner Tricia Ridgeway carries a...

Seasonal Beauty Favorites

Whenever the season changes, I try to update my "beauty regimen", which is really just basic hygiene but it makes me feel fancy to call it a regimen. Here are a few of the things I've added to my high-end arsenal of soap and water: PCA Skin A&C Synergy serum //  If my skin is looking dull, I pat this on after washing for a few nights and immediately notice a difference. Maison Louis Marie Bois de Balincourt fragrance //...
