Loooook, it's me! On the cover of the Philadelphia Weekly!
I wrote a story a little while back about the first day that I found out I was pregnant. One thing led to another, and my Journalism and Society professor, George Miller (who also writes, takes photos, films videoes, etc. for PW as well as other Philadelphia publications) gave it to the editor of PW, Adamma Ince. She expressed an interest in publishing it, and I got to meet with her earlier this month. Then, it became the cover story!!! I got a friend of mine to do the photography. Her name is Elena Jasic, and she's really very talented. This whole process has been such a wonderful experience. Adamma is an inspiration as someone who's been through a similar situation herself and obviously succeeded.
I'm just so pumped!
Check out the story here :)

Same season, different sense of what's "cool."
Jenni Kayne's looks are cool in an understated, I-wake-up-looking-this-chic kind of way, while Som's crazy prints take the more outrageous, in-your-face approach.
Regardless, I like them both. I don't know why I chose to post them together; I guess I just like the contrast.

I bought Lily Allen's new CD today on iTunes, and I've got to say I'm hooked. Her stuff is just so bubbly and fun without sacrificing wit and humor. Plus, she's moved beyond seeking revenge on a former lover, dissing him for being inadequate in bed, and scolding her little brother for smoking too much weed. Well, the size issue does still come up in "Not Fair," but in a different way. I mean, you wouldn't want her changing too much now would you?
