Brazil, baby…

by jennine on July 14, 2008

Sooo… The last few days have been hectic, and I’m running late today, as yesterday, and oh gosh, seemingly everyday. I’ve had the search and destroy project ready for a few days, and haven’t been able to post them! Yikes… well, today I’m off to Brazil for this event involving Vogue Brazil and Brastemp. I’m not sure about the details, except I’m doing a presentation about my life as a blogger… do people really want to know the life of click, click, click until the weeee hours of the morning? Maybe? I’m really excited to go, as Susie Bubble is also going, and in my experience, if I love your blog, I’ll probably love you.

It just occurred to me, I’ve never really done any shoots in my bedroom… which is odd because it’s the room with the best light (and the most heat… yikes!). Having the remote control for my camera has been so much more fun to do self portraits, and of course having good runs at the flea market has been help too. Aside from the Casio Calculator Watch, the 4 Me bow ring and my old Gunmetal Electric Blue Stilletos (the most comfy heels I own) every thing else is from the flea market. The shorts are made from old Wranglers that I’ve bleached a few times to get the drippy effect. Haven’t worn bleached jeans since Jr. High…

Arnie goes to Brazil too!


And, I’m not going to Rio, but the governor of my home state’s been to Brazil.

I have to say that I’m slightly (very) jealous of your life! Have an amazing time in Brazil!

Brazil! How exciting! I am also dying over the flooring in your bedroom! Turquoise?! Giving me ideas for my awful puke colored painted plywood bedroom floor.

Bon voyage!

Cute outfit! I approve. =)

Wow! Brazil. Exciting. I’m sure we’ll be seeing you on Diane Pernet’s blog as it is loaded with Brazil photos. She must have a correspondent there.

I hope you and Susie have fun!

thanks so much for all your warm wishes… there’s been a hiccup in the itinerary, so we’ll see how it all plays out.

beka, you’d be a lot less jealous of you knew how much money i made!
;)

patti, yes, it is a strange blue floor, i think it’s laminate, possibly from ikea… but it certainly offsets the wooden walls.

jess and lila see you this weekend!
