Newsletters are New Again

It seems antiquated in the age of the FaceChats and InstaTweets, but e-newsletters are experiencing a surprising resurgence. Much like the rebirth of podcasts, a new wave of emailed infotainment has come to take over our inboxes. While the format hasn’t changed significantly since the days of OGs like DailyCandy (RIP), a well executed newsletter provides welcome relief from the usual bill notifications and cash-strapped Nigerian princes. A few of my current favorites: Tomorrow Looks Bright This curated newsletter highlights...

I Just Want Your Extra Time

I knew this would happen someday. After the too-soon deaths of Michael, Whitney, Amy, and so many others, I knew I would lose my favorite at some point. But I was totally unprepared for Prince’s death, news of which came yesterday via TMZ (how do they always know?). I was on a photo shoot and just happened to be browsing Twitter when the questions started popping up. Was it true? Was it a hoax? My...

Style // Spring CINsation

Friends, I think we've finally (finally!) reached the time of year when it's not-crazy to wear a medium-weight sweater instead of the layers of down and wool and Monchichi™ fur necessitated by temperatures that barely reach the legal drinking age. What I'm saying is, it's Spring! [caption id="attachment_5764" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Vintage sweater, earrings, and blouse, Madewell jeans, Limited purse, BCBGeneration booties[/caption] Spring means it's time to shop, and what could be more fun/convenient/tempting than a whole entire event dedicated to shopping?...

Meet Genevieve

One beautiful, sunny (and extremely windy) afternoon, I broke out my favorite blue velvet flares and got my baby hair in order to meet photographer Damon Wilson and Queen City Vignette’s Amber Zaragoza for a photo shoot. The star of the shoot? No, not me. A chair. Not just any chair, though. Genevieve - which totally sounds like a historical American Girl doll I would’ve loved - is a vintage settee made of carved wood and...

How to Create a Podcast When You Don’t Really Know How to Create a Podcast

Whew, things have been busy! I know, I know--everyone is busy, but in addition to work and life stuff, I’ve also been doing interviews and editing and working on everything else that comes along with starting a podcast. The actual recording is pretty straightforward, but as always, there’s more to the creative process than meets the eye. Here’s my experience so far: Podcast Intro I recorded the intro in the audio booth at the Cincinnati Public Library’s...

The Creative City Podcast is Coming Soon!

I've never considered myself much of a talker--I already know what I think, so I'm much more interested in what other people have to say--but my job as a Stylist means I'm regularly talking to creative types about their businesses, their projects, and their motivation. Which is fascinating. I get to have amazing conversations with entrepreneurs, designers, publicists, retailers, makers, and more, and I love to share their stories. The problem is, I'm a terrible storyteller. Like, horrible....
