My friend Jillian started this happiness project where she’s dancing every day for 100 days and blogging about it/sharing on instagram.  This couldn’t be more up my alley, as someone who dances to get out of my head and just let go.

Was so psyched to guest dance in one of her videos… in prom dresses to the Spice Girls, no less.

She’s really one of my favorite people and always puts me in a positive vibe when I see her.

So dance and get happy y’all.

100dancingdays:

Day 22. SPICE UP YOUR LIFE.

And this is exactly what this happiness project is doing. By the way. Just sayin’.

You know what? Since I started this little project, I’ve begun to observe people more. Creepily. Especially in social settings and especially where there is music. We never really think about it, “dancing.” Do we? It’s always just been there. But that’s it! It’s always just been there! Babies dance! Everyone does! And it’s always been such an instinctual thing right? You hear music, you are immediately inclined to move with that music. At least I am, I don’t know about you guys. But I’ve seen it with new eyes now, and it’s pretty amazing. I might go as far to say that it’s relatively mind-blowing. I laugh and am inspired by watching people on the street or at the bar where I work partake in this. My heart grows. I find myself wanting to talk to people who allow themselves to let loose. And I look back on myself, years ago, as an insecure girl who WOULD NOT DANCE! And I ask myself WHO WAS I?!

Why was that so hard? Why did I rob myself of that joy? Why was I so disconnected?

Music connects people to themselves and others in ways that we don’t even consider. It makes you move. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing or if you even speak the same language! Dancing is an F-ING UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF HAPPINESS AND JOY. One moves, we all move. Amiright?? I think so.

And when you have nothing else, hey, you always have dancing!!!

Which is something my friend Bianca and I talked about, which stuck with me. When you make changes in your life or are going through something hard, music and dancing can be a form of solace, a break, a time-out for self-love. A pick-me-up, and reminder, a release. HOW POWERFUL IS THAT??

And how powerful of a statement are our PROM DRESSES?!

FYI they are hard to dance in. We were worried about nip-slips. But whatever. LIFE. (There are none, by the way).

SHE’S THE BEST!! I like watching her dance. She’s so graceful. And also we have a guest puppy. And we are in her amazing office. She’s a badass and runs a PR company.

Anyway, enjoy!

Le P - History

Today’s #officetunes is actually brought to you by a random dude I matched on Tinder with, whom I had asked about mixtapes, and so kindly provided me with some dance music links that might be to my liking [anything I can dance to].

I wasn’t even trying to flirt guys.  Was legitimately curious re: the “big move” mixtapes he referenced on his blurb.  But so glad I asked because I can’t stop listening to this (and the other soundcloud links he sent).

I told him I’d return the favor with an instagram dance video.  It’s only fitting.

Tinder - not just for finding cute boys, but for finding great music.

Also, does this mean I have my digital flirting game back? maybe? probably not?

Rocking Out… on the L Train Platform - Subscene Style #TrackMarks Interview

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a Track Marks interview, for lifestyle/music/fashion outlet Subscene Style, which they conduct at different subway stations (get it? sub - scene… amazing).

Couldn’t have been happier to have done mine on the Bedford L train stop, since I spend a significant amount of time there, as someone who lives and works in Williamsburg and takes the L to hang out with my best friends in the East Village, go to meetings in the city, etc.  I run into people on that platform on a daily basis, I read on that platform (duh), I dance on that platform (for fun, not for money); and so doing an interview at the Bedford stop just seemed like a natural move.

Check out what Sophie and I chatted about - the age old story of how small girls started, why I love Mick Jagger, and my indecision on what you’ll find me wearing at this year’s music festivals (though truth be told- I’ve actually not been partaking in any of the festival madness this year, lest for work.)  

And to her note on you not having a soul unless you take me on a date to a dive bar showcasing the arcade gem “Buck Hunter”, if you follow my instagram, you’ll know I went through a phase where I spent my free time schooling bro-pponents in that game.  That.. and dancing.

K. Go watch it.

+ thanks to djbtips for sending me the stills!

I’ll never forget the moment the email landed in my inbox from Bianca asking for me to come in for an interview. After sending a…

It’s been such a pleasure having Carley on our team for the last year.  One of the best parts about Small Girls PR is really getting to know our employees on a personal level.  Not only had Carley and I been sequestered to our own “remote” PR2D2 office for 3 months after she started (D for digital - bloggers and collabs, along with social gal Annie), but she and I have gotten our yoga/meditation/hamptons/ice cream/boytalk/etc. jams on, in the last year.

Click through to read some great tips that she gives on transitioning from her social media background at Vayner to rockstar publicist at Small Girls.

And thanks SO much to Gary V for posting about us on LinkedIn, where Carley discovered us!  My life wouldn’t be as gif-tastic without her!

This is incredibly beautiful.  Add this to my scrapbook of images to inspire the half closet mezzanine… eep!  Getting excited for the move.

Found this while I was searching for links on my archive.  My closet isn&#8217;t a mezzanine anymore, but my current room/wardrobe situation is actually much closer- so a better inspiration.

The Things I Wear (and Think): That was Then, This is Now #samesies, yet totally different JUNE 2011 / JUNE 2014

I read one of those motivational quotes recently that had said something about not being able to move forward with your story if you’re constantly re-reading the past. As a very reminiscent person, this is extremely hard for me.  Reading old emails, looking at old photos, listening to old songs that spark old memories- these are all things that I do on a constant basis, and have been trying to curb.  

I think it’s safe to reminisce about the past, however, when you’re also thinking about the present. As I did when I realized on Sunday that I was wearing basically the same outfit as that photo that I posted 3 years ago, and laughed to myself about how different my life was then, although it may look like they never change.

I remember the day I took that photo in 2011 - outside of a hotel in Maryland for a wedding with some of the tumblr crew and my then boyfriend. The stability in my life of being in a relationship, living in a large apartment in Brooklyn with said bf, the excitement of the early days of Small Girls getting into the swing of things- what I would call overall chill complacency. 

On June 1st 2014, I found myself outside of an ice cream shop with a group of girl friends (which is crazy, because my previous close friendships had always been with guys), a puppy I was anxiously waiting to get home to (in essentially a lil studio, albeit all my own), being single as fuck (like actually single, not ‘dating around a bunch single’), and establishing a general sense of independence in my life. Also, I look skinnier.  Which is amazing.

On paper it sounds like 2011 was much better than 2014 is, but in reality it’s all chill.  It’s just a wonderful snapshot of seeing where things are at. I have a great life and I love the moments where I can stop and recognize it. 

And while I do, I have my staple American Apparel dress that will always work for a beautiful summer day.  The accessories have changed (also marked by changes in my life), but the look is the same.

2011

  • American Apparel Baby Rib cross back summer dress in navy
  • CHARM NECKLACE - Unexpected Expectancy Alice in Wonderland necklace (after having discovered it via Tumblr, and was so appropriate for the adventurous nature I lived my life… with partner in crime Ronen who had a matching Mad Hatter one)
  • FLATS - Glitter Ballet flats (GAP) - in my #glittervision phase
  • OVERSIZED SUNGLASSES - Dior (an employee gift from my days at Lucky)
  • BAG - Katherine Kwei (one of Small Girls’ first clients)

2014

  • American Apparel Baby Rib cross back summer dress in black
  • CHARM NECKLACE - Brooklyn Charm skull + UO x Bing Bang horse shoe charm necklace - this whole life/death/luck thing I have going right now
  • FLATS - Camo flats bought after we landed the US Army’s Menswear Collection account
  • OVERSIZED SUNGLASSES - street vendor replacing my fave pair that looked exactly the same and broke from American Apparel
  • BAG - from my Cure Thrift Shop days- that I’ve worn out in the last 3 years, big enough to carry everything from files, work notebook, dog treats, etc.

Our Account Coordinator, Annie, received a makeunder from our friends at XOJane and the results were kind of amazing. “I’m 23, but without makeup people think I’m 17 — that’s why I wear so much of it”. 
Read the whole piece here, and let us know what you thinks of Annie’s fresh-faced look. 

Our Account Coordinator, Annie, was xoJane&#8217;s makeunder today.  Annie is like a ray of sunshine and positivity in the office- hard working and genuinely sweet and caring.  I couldn&#8217;t be happier to have such a beautiful person both inside and out, with makeup and without, on our team.
