See My Apartment in RUE Magazine!

If you havent noticed- and some of you have- I have been purposely holding back showing you new pictures of my apartment for a while- and thats because I wanted to save it all for the new issue of RUE!

I dont even know what to say about it, other than, WOW. Im so overwhelmed with everything. Thank you all so much for all your kind words… really.

I also want to give a huge shout out to all of you who helped me along the way. Rebecca June – I literally ran every single purchase and decision in the last 2 years by her! Erica of Design Blahg who interviewed me for the article and helped me buy flowers and style, Visual Vamp, Jenny of MFAMBNick Olsen all helped guide me along the way- you guys all rock. (Not to mention all my real life friends that suffered through every moment of this renovation! Sarah, Caroline, Claudy, Vivian, Grace, Regine- who styled me- Anita, who did my hair, Sasha – who did my makeup….Mom + David, my husband- who put up with me! Thank you all!!! )

Anyway- To see the actual spread you have to go check out RUE MAG – PAGE 100. But here are some of my favorite outtakes from the shoot!

And here are some behind the scenes pics that my husband took during the 8 hour long photo shoot with Emily Anderson and her assistant!

8 AM: Hair & Makeup….

9 AM: Getting my portrait taken. Never in a million years did I think I would ever publish photos of myself 8 mos pregnant. BUT OK.

9:30 AM Cookie playing with flowers…

9:45 AM: Styling and deliberating: 

10 AM: Shipped husband and daughter out of the house so we could get some WORK done!!!

4 PM: Cupcakes…. TIRED!!!!

Thank you to everyone involved!!! And I hope you all enjoyed seeing my home. Now I can post pictures of the house EVERY DAY again! Woohoo!
