I started working with beauty brand Dr Loretta at the end of last summer. I was immediately drawn to the partnership because of the aesthetic of the brand, which is very aligned with that of Studio Bicyclette thanks to the soft pastel palette and clean, minimal branding. They approached me to create a suite of content for their social media channels, and already had a very clear understanding of what the brand was all about and what they wanted, delivered in a beautifully packaged deck that made my job easy. Oftentimes when I’m working with a client this is something I’ll put together for them if they haven’t already gone through the process, but in this case, since it was already developed, I simply took that and the information from our initial calls and proceeded to build out a Visual Directive that would be specific to our series of shoots.Read More
Do you ever stop to think about how everything you put in your body has the potential to help improve your skin?
We do — and it might have to do with our obsession with understanding our skin and how we can improve it, down to each and every choice we make. Or it might be the fact that we love simplicity and the easiest way to improve your skin is to look at what you are putting into your body (or, on the other side of the spectrum, avoiding).Read More
Since we're still pretty early on in our Beauty School Dropout journey, we thought we'd take this opportunity to start with some of current beauty favourites, product-wise. As we mentioned in our intro to the series, we're planning on covering a number of different topics under the beauty umbrella, but because one of the first things we tend to think of are the products themselves, we figured we'd dive into that first, which also give you a bit of a sense of what our skin journeys have been like and where we're at.Read More
Over the past few months, Abby and I have been exploring a new topic and passion project of ours — beauty. And today’s the day we “officially” launch our new series into the world — Beauty School Dropout.
We chose the name Beauty School Dropout because of the slightly badass connotation and this idea that we admittedly don’t really know what we’re talking about — and I think in this case, that works to our advantage. Beauty is such a universal concept and touches us all in some way, but for so many of us, we’re navigating our relationship with beauty on our own terms and figuring it out as we go, learning what works for us, what our interpretation is.Read More
01 // The Free People blog is always full of beautiful inspirational photos and creative DIYs, and this floral wedding garland is no exception, and has me wanting to pay a visit to the flower markets. I love when fresh flowers are used in unique ways beyond the traditional bouquet, and this reminds me of the floral heart we did a few months ago and which is still hanging on the studio wall.Read More
01 // One of my favourite bloggers, Victoria of SFGIRLBYBAY curated three mini collections with Deny Designs that represent her dream gallery walls: LA Living, Beachy Boudoir, and Graphic Cool. Needless to say, I'm pretty into all of them. I've started putting my wish lists together, filled with art prints and pillows, and the styling for each room has quickly made it to the top of my decor inspiration.Read More
