hey guys! the weekend was incredible, i hope your was too. i swear i felt embers burn in my eyes. we were right under the macy’s fireworks! i took pics but haven’t even looked at them yet but will tonite. in the meantime, i just wanted to say heyand share with you the vanities that have been sent in so far for the project (if you don’t know i’m collecting shots of your vanity for a book i’m putting together called ‘vanity for humanity’ with all proceeds going to habitat for humanity. i wanted it to be shot guerilla style, just candids of how we live, sort of voyeur’s look into an area that’s mysterious, sexy and unique for every woman.

    hi guys, thanks for checking in. there’s no real deadline since it’s all a lark but i was thinking that it would be good to have it together by august/september.
    they don’t have to be perfectly styled but in focus with a point of interest in the center would be great. i have to do it too and i know it’s not easy!

    This looks fabulous…I wish I had something fierce to setup. Hmmm, unless I use someone else’s apartment. Would that be considered cheating lol?

    I think that’s a lovely idea. I should one day put together a proper vanity, I’m still trying to get out of the overly simple soap/water/sunblock habit to the amusement and concern of my female relatives.
