 2012 Year-end in Montana

2012 Year-end in Montana

I wanted to recap my year. In naked images. 

The first part is here. The rest of #nakedinpublic is here.


July

My sister, Rae Rae, came to visit. | We cheered on Street Light as he freestyled for 13 hours straight (!) to claim the World Record. Whoa. | We ate sushi. | I got flowers. | Rae Rae had In-N-Out. | | We went to La Jolla to hang out with seals. | Ended up photo-bombing a wedding. | We went to ComiCon. | Saw a real-life Mega Man. | Went to The Tournament of Nerds at the YouTube Lounge. |  | met the parents. | But then I spent some time in Redondo Beach with my cousin. | And her doggies. |
We ate more sushi. |  And wandered around Venice.... | With my boss's dog, Eddie. | I taught Eddie to surf. | And took him to Abbott Kinney. 

August

I was on a boat. | My cousin adopted a broken-leg kitty. | We all went to Disney and went on ALL THE RIDES. | We got sparkly mouse ears. | I spent a lot of time in my car that month. Ugh. | I drank sangria with Joe's Daily. | On a whim, | I got mini bangs. | I went to outer space. | I got a tiny raccoon/kitty. | And I named her Ruby.
Then | I froze my ass off in the pool. | I got some R & R in Topanga Canyon on staycation. | Before I moved back to Silverlake. | Ruby became my favorite human ever.

September

I got back into Silverlake. | Silverlake forever. #antigirl. | Lunch in Long Beach with an old friend from Choate. | Ruby became an alcoholic. | I became a hipster. | Then I got back to ballet class. | And hiking with spaceships. #endeavor. | Also, spent a lot of time in cafes. | Felt a little melancholy. | Not too much work got done. | I was doing twilights jogs in Griffith Park. | Then I got back to work. Ruby helped. | Movie screenings @ Soho House with some weirdos. | Got dressed for #adweek in NYC. | Ruby helped with that, too. | Returned to the East Coast for the first time in a year! | Sat in the Professor Brookman Emeritus chair @ my old place in DC. | Had a great time at a dear friend's wedding. | Reunited with a good man and left him in DC. Sorry baby. | Finally, hit NYC. Or it hit me. 

October 

Hung out in #TheLabNYC and met their awesome team. | Roved the streets of Brooklyn. | And Manhattan. | Headed home to CT via Grand Central. | Met the family doggie. | And kitties. | Found some baby pictures. | And a sweet vintage tweed coat. | Back to LA and to LACMA to see the Ken Price exhibit. | Gingers discussed communism. | I had meetings at the Viceroy in Santa Monica and discovered my favorite (colored) bathroom of all time. GREEN FOREVER. | Back to work with Belsky. | I curated the event board @ #PIVOTCON. | But Ruby kept doing weird things. | Like getting bigger. | Making ferocious yawn faces. | Falling in the bathtub. | And eating Spaghetti. | I sent contraband to Montana for a friend in need. | Joe (awesome!) and I hit Gjelina. (meh!) | The Pentagram x Designers & Books Book fair was a huge success in NYC. | Just as Sandy Hit the east coast...

November

I got into Boardwalk Empire a little bit. | Meanwhile, Steph and I hit ex-boyfriend's movie screenings. | And hung out in lucky (and/or auspicious) bars. | And cooking. | Recieved some inspiration from my favorite boston columnist. |  I voted in the most anti-climactic election ever. | Did some art projects. | Friends screenings in Hollywood. | Went on air with Joe. | Wore a Spirit Hood in a moment of intense Jeanine Garafolo level self-loathing. | Then I was reunited with my favorite troll. | Felt inspired to start documenting my outfits again. | So I started #ootd on Instagram. | Channeled Bettie Fucking Crocker for Thanksgiving. | Played video games with 2 year old nephews. | Got some sky. | This here blog finally LAUNCHED! | Weird things were going on in the streets of Silverlake for a bit there. | Then I dragged a 27" display through the Americana @ Brand in 5" heels. | Creeped on a wedding @ the Observatory. | And got back to work...

December

Couples-therapy for semi-single people (not allowed to include photos due to anxiety levels of those involved). | My car got stolen in San Diego...sorta. | I thought about New Mexico a lot. | But went on an Ill-fated Roadtrip to Montana instead. | Drove through a blizzard in Yellowstone. | Did some Livingston bar-hopping. | And performed Montana Ballet | Found Long-lost friends. | Bitchfaced my way through a fake-breakup. | Kissed a moose under the miseltoe at Chico Hot Springs Resort. | After an epic saga of car trouble, I finally got back to LA. | Celebrated my birthday the day the world was supposed to end. | Celebrated ex-mas @ my favorite sushi place, Katsu-Ya. 


By the time | got all dolled up for 2013, I really just needed a nap. 

 New Years 2013. Almost. 

New Years 2013. Almost. 

And here we are. To 2013.
