Jeffrey & Me



I've had this shoot in mind ever since I painted Jeffrey (my co-star in these photos) hot pink (he used to be a rather boyish metallic navy blue) in April, but I only got around to it right before I left NOLA a few weeks ago. But it's around time he got to show off a bit! Doesn't he look fabulous?

Words of the Day



I've always been secretly into lettering - my old sketchbooks, which I still refuse to show anyone, are covered in fanciful random words - even though I didn't really know that it was a thing until college. Unfortunately, over the course of college I also consumed increasingly more beer with friends and produced increasingly fewer doodles alone in my room.

The great thing about being back at the rents' is that there's plenty of time and room to produce doodles galore, so here is one of my most recent ones made cool instagram-able photo. I might even start making this a regular thing, maybe finally get together that portfolio I've been meaning to compile since forever. I am also a huge font geek/incredibly picky about textual presentation (still agonizing over what fonts to use on my CV!) and this gives me an insane amount of free time to geek out over and download various fonts to add to my illustrator collection - proof here.

Please let me know what you think of this post and if you'd care to see more of these! And I hope you're all having a lovely Friday and have a great weekend planned! Ta-ta!

Monday Milkshake & Changes



Okay, I lied. It's more of a smoothie than a milkshake, but "Monday Smoothie" just didn't have the same ring to it.

Anyways, one of my favorite breakfasts is a smoothie. It's fast, healthy, delicious, and light enough that you don't start your day feeling like a hot air balloon but caloric enough that you aren't faintingly famished by 10 am. As far as multi-use fruits go, I think bananas are pretty much the shiznit and they're my go-to when I'm looking for things to toss into the blender. The exciting news this week is that le Boyfriend's sister got him (us) a brand new shiny blender for his birthday, so smoothies just got serious yo - check it out.

Isa's Banana Breakfast Smoothie
Ingredients (one serving):
1 banana 2 ice cubes some almond milk - regular milk is fine too (I just eyeball it - the thicker you want it, the less you put in) some honey (depending on how sweet you want it) some oats (I put in probably a whole quarter cup) a dash of cinnamon (if you'd like)
Instructions:
Blend. Consume.

But the bigger news today is that tomorrow I leave New Orleans for an as-yet-undetermined period of time - family obligations call. This means that le Boyfriend and I are being dragged violently into a sudden LDR, and that I'll be without a photographer for some time. We shot like the wind this weekend, so I've got a couple of outfits on backup, but we'll see how it all works out. If it seems like my hair has suddenly stopped growing, though, that's why.

HBD AMERICA!



Our good ol' friend Amurrica's birthday also happens to be le Boyfriend's birthday, so he got a red-white-and-blue breakfast in bed in honor of the as-ever double occasion. And I painted my nails with a toothpick just to prove how very patriotic I am. Now off to the pool!

Happy 4th of July!
