How To // Planning for Magazine Editorial Coverage

A few weeks ago, I was in a shop pulling wardrobe for a series of photo shoots, and the store owner asked me: “Is this for December?” I was floored. “Oh no, that’s been finished. This is for January.” It took me a second to realize that shopping in mid-November totally made sense for holiday from a retail standpoint.

Work // Double Blog Lives

Sometimes I feel like I’m living multiple blog lives. I’ve been running around doing interviews, taking pictures, and posting content 4-5 times per week--just not here. That blogging takes place over at CincinnatiMagazine.com and CincinnatiWeddingMagazine.com, but I want to share all the nonsense I talk about there with y’all, too! A lot of it is really fun: Recently, I went to a bridal fashion show at a historical mansion, got a sneak peak at the sexy
