March 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

I must apologize for my lack in posts lately. I have officially moved and left the comfort of studio nemo.  I’m still here in Portland, at least for the summer, I mean really, who peaces out of PDX just before summer hits?!!! All you PDX dwellers know what im talking about! For those of you who have never experienced a Portland summer you are truly missing out….were talking every vitam b starved being in portland hits the rivers, parks, beaches, campgrounds, concerts, outside bar areas, there are movies in the park, more PBR drunk than is humanly possible, bikes flying around the streets and smiles on every face….its the best 3 months of life here in the great northwest.

Back to my post! Marni for H&M is launching march 8! I cant wait….unfortunately for us in portland, the line will not be coming to our store front!!! But maybe I will be one of those insane people who drives up to Seattle and stands in the rain outside the store like a adict waiting to get a peice of this amazing line! Will you be seeing me Seattle? You will have to wait and see…..mark your calendar…Marni on March 8th!!!

January 25, 2012 § 1 Comment

My first debut on the sweet cheeks site. As the photographer I am usually the one behind the camera…this time I did the modeling. My artist bio and announcement is coming to the sweet cheeks website soon! Until then check out the new undies, trust me when I say, they are both comfy and cute! 🙂

A special thanks to Mark Thompson who made modeling in my underwear not so weird.

New arrivals at HM: My shopping list

January 15, 2012 § Leave a comment

With my HM gift card burning a hole in my pocket I thought I would check out the new arrivals at hm before making the trek to the store. I really love knowing what i am looking for when i go into a place like H&M. There are just to many awesome layering pieces in the store….its too easy to over spend.

Here are the few pieces I am going to try and snag.

My H&M Shopping List

1. Blazer- $49.95

2. Tunic- $34.95

3. Necklace- $12.95

4. Belt- $14.95

All of these pieces are perfect for layering with the amazing Free people suede pencil skirt i got from my sister for Christmas and I just love the bright blazer!

Here’s to hoping they have them in stock!

My solestruck obcession

December 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Ok girls, if you don’t already stalk all the shoes on this site, you will now. I love solestruck, they have great customer service and countless amazing pairs of shoes. Not to mention, they carry small sizes, lots of them!!!

Well, anyways they had this amazing black Friday sale 30%-50% off all sales items over 4 days! So naturally i piled all the shoes i love into a wish list and waited for the numbers to drop. I ended up with a few absolutely beautiful (and practical, yeah me!) shoes. But after purchasing i realized the code didn’t end up working. I waited until today to call and see if i was able to get a refund for the sale amount. The young woman who answered was so sweet she worked out the issue in no time, refunded me and gave me an additional discount on ANOTHER pair of shoe! Oh man just what i need, one more pair!

You know you have a problem when the customer service line says “oooh i remember you!” then states that you might as well come work in the office at this point! I cant help it, with free shipping, optional recycled shoe boxes, great customer service and amazing selection i cant help but keep coming back.

There, i did it, my ode to Solestruck.

Check out their blog too! its great!

Poppy & Moe with Kari Rowe!

I defidnately felt that title. HA maybe i should take a break with the clever titles for a bit.

A little bit ago i spent an amazing day with the lovely ladies of Poppy & Moe. I have been dying to share some photos with you, my internet friends. But i guess one of my favorite, yet the toughest, parts of being a photographer is the anticipation of waiting for the client to share your work! 🙂 Those talented ladies have released one of their look books Forest Fortunes featuring the images we captured on our whirlwind of a day adventure. Check out their awesome tees and a ton of my photos on their beautiful and newly updated site!

Trying to Find My Scents

December 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

I know how clever is my title! I’m really feeling my coffee this morning! I have been on an everlasting search for a smell that isn’t too overwhelming, wont give me a headache and is feminine, natural and not too sweet. I want to put my perfume on in the morning and smell like i feel. AMAZING! With my standards high and my pocket book low, by golly i have found a few i love that wont break the book!

I received a tester from sephora when i went on one of my obsessive purchasing of beauty product kicks. It is called Boyfriend by Kate Walsh, i am usually the girl who avoids celebrity fragrances at all costs. This one is different, it is the perfect combo of feminine and masculine i don’t get a headache and i feel (here’s my word of the day again) amazing when i wear it. Its available at sephora online, the small bottle would be fine since I only use the tinyest bit, so as not to be that person you can smell a mile away while on the street. Rather, i want the scent to mix with my body naturally and tantalize your scenses when you get close to me and take a sniff. 🙂

Notes: Dark Plum, Myrrh, Night Blooming Jasmine, Benzoin Tears, Skin Musk, Golden Amber, Vanilla Woods.

The second one i absolutely fell in love with was Comme des Garcons Series 3: Incense Avignon by Bertrand Duchaufour. Ok ladies get ready for this. I have found the perfect balance between my hippy roots and the fashionable vixen i am becoming! It is a light scent and wont linger too long but rather make those heads turn as you get close and you will defidnately be hearing “You smell (again) amazing”

It only comes in a larger size, so i tried the little sample and i am all in for the big one! I am pretty positive this will be my go to scent! This one is available online at lucky scent.

Avignon Notes Roman chamomile, cistus oil, elemi, incense, vanilla, patchouli, palisander, ambrette seeds

Hope you enjoy these smells as much as i have! Also, if you have any smells you love let me know and I will have to try them out!
