Monday @ 2

What does your Monday at 2pm look like? That was the idea of our photo project for this week. We enlisted the help of family and friends across the globe and armed with camera phones and canons, this is what we came up with….

Photos in order of timezone:

Extensive hours on the beach leads to the mastering of the handstand. Surfers Paradise as a back drop is merely a coincidence. But never the less, a nice touch.

Enjoying an hour of quiet time while Dre naps…candy, people.com and maybe even some facebook creep time.

Today was about enjoying the beautiful sunshine + being outdoors, I just got home from a fun shoot of my niece + nephew and took my Mom’s pup for a run down by our pond.   The ice has been melting on with this incredibly mild winter weather.

 I wake with intent walk farther gather what falls carry it folded in the hollow of my hand—like garbage—like hope I can’t remember the smallest promises.

Monday’s errands.  And there is a lot of them.   Library, bank, post office, gas station, Walgreens and Walmart, with a 4-year-old in tow.  All before picking up Noah from school in 45min?  Yeh, not gonna happen!

We plan to do this project again…so let us know if you’d like to participate!

Tim Gunn

Never leave the house without your camera…a lesson I’ve learned since moving to New York. On Saturday I’m cruising along in the mall and who do I see? Tim Gunn!

The Westchester mall hosted a fall 2011 fashion show with designs from Kate Spade, Juicy Couture and Lucky Brand. Tim Gunn and Leah Salak of Liz Claiborne chatted about the designs as they walked down the runway and later participated in a Question/Answer segment. I’ve met Tim before at fashion week and once again I’d have to say he is the most kind and gracious person in all of fashion.

A few words of advice from Tim’s book: Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work

“You can be too rich and too thin, but you can never be too well read or too curious about the world.”

“I have heard women complain about men holding doors for them,, as if it is inherently offensive and implies that they are weak. … I would hold a door for anyone. … It has to do with noticing our fellow human beings and saying, “I recognize that you’re on this planet, and I don’t want a door hitting you in the face.”

“Just the way it never rains when you have an umbrella, you’ll never run into people if you look fantastic. But go outside in pajamas, and you’ll run into every ex you have.”

“Make it work”
