Good Morning My Loves,
As I write this, my heart is heavy with thoughts of Paris, Beirut, our world at large. Today is the day I leave for Africa on the Road to Zanzibar. I never dreamed it would be under these conditions. As I make my way from Kenya, to Tanzania, down to the spice island, I will continue to search and spread love. That is the one thing I know to be true in this world. Excited to share this illustrated adventure with you. Catch it all on my Instagram @TravelWriteDraw in realtime.

I hope you are loving the new David Bromstad x Kipling USA collection as much as I am!! Here are a couple shots of me with my favorite piece, the Around the World S Wheeled Luggage, in my neighbourhood, Williamsburg. I love that this carry-on is as much a statement piece in my outfit as my shoes and hat. It's a reminder that the adventure starts the moment you start packing, not just when you step foot on the plane!! Oh and just a friendly refresher that if you use promo code: DBxKipling you can get 25% off your order. So what are you waiting for?! Time to escape...

Hello My Loves,
I'm so thrilled to share with you this illustration inspired by the new David Bromstad x Kipling USA collection. From the moment I started Travel Write Draw, I have always looked to the Golden Age of Travel for inspiration. Picture vintage luggage tags, and those gorgeously illustrated posters for destinations across the globe. David Bromstad used those same references when designing this capsule, which is why I was so excited to partner with Kipling in celebration of the #DavidBromstadxKipling collection!
And guess what, my darling readers?! If you use this promo code: DBxKipling you can get 25% off the DB collection!
Oh and for those of you who follow my Instagram, you know I've been mentioning my next rapidly approaching adventure, and this illustration gives just a little hint of where I'm heading to next!! Any guesses?! All will be revealed soon so stay tuned.

Hello My Darlings,
I'm SO thrilled to share with you that I've teamed up with the incredible people over at Refinery 29 to illustrate from the new The Eight Senses collection in celebration of their Pop-Up Shop at #120Wooster.
Meeting with the designer, and trying on nearly every piece of the collection, I became totally enchanted with the brand, its intuitive and purposeful design, minimal aesthetic, and the way it made me feel. The clothes just move with your body so seamlessly, and have such an understated elegance to them, that you can't help but feel confident while wearing them.
My aim in illustrating from the collection was to really capture the essence of the structural and intelligent designs. The sketches were made to feel constructed and conceptual. They are striking and hand crafted just like the garments themselves.
My two favorite pieces are the ones you see me rocking above and below, the sleek wool vest and dramatic black blanket coat. Both items felt like they belonged with me as soon as a I tried them on.
Head down to Soho from now until the end of December to try these pieces for yourself. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Since branching out on my own to work full-time for Travel Write Draw, I have had to nail down my daily uniform to a perfect science. I simply don't have the brain capacity to conceive of new looks everyday for every different meeting, lunch, pr press event, and pitch I go to. So here it is, My Perfect Outfit, now on Lucky Shops:

From the time I was a little girl, I have LOVED reading Harper's Bazaar. The look and feel of the magazine, the way the photos seemed larger than life, for me it was the the holy grail of fashion magazines. That is why when I got the email confirming I would be partnering with them on 5 illustrations from this September's fashion week season, I was over the moon elated!!

I have been reading Who What Wear since before I packed my bags, and hauled my life to NYC to pursue my career as a Fashion Illustrator 6 years ago. So you can imagine how excited I was when I landed on their list of Fashion's Best Illustrators to Follow!! Check out all the mega (and super unique) talent they selected in the link above.

There was much talk this season about Givenchy designating a certain number of tickets to their show for the general public. I for one thought it was a genius idea. Fashion doesn't have to be so elitist. SO when Toronto's fashion publication, The Kit, approached me about illustrating the public line at the show, I jumped at the opportunity to do so. I went down to Pier 26 where the show was being held on September 11. It was going to be an event that both celebrated New York and commemorated the heartbreak of 9/11. It looked as though the sky was glistening just for that occasion! I took photos of the excited students and Givenchy enthusiasts and put together the illustration you see printed in the paper above. Such a cool assignment to work on, especially for my hometown!!
