Happy Holidays My Loves,
I have made my way back to Canada to be with my family for the break. I was so pleasantly surprised last night to discover this InStyle Magazine article which features my Instagram @TravelWriteDraw as one of the Top 15 Fashion Meets Art accounts to follow!! I'm so honored to be included alongside some of my favorite accounts out there like @PariDust, @HomeontheRunway, and @Kalen_Hollomon.
So much has happened this year since starting my own company. I feel incredibly blessed but also very nervous about maintaing the momentum with the holidays approaching. It seems that opportunities keep getting bigger and better. How does one keep it all going?! I'm looking forward to writing some more retrospective and helpful content on the blog this break. My hope is to help anyone out there who is also contemplating starting on their own.

Hello My Loves,
I'm finally back from beautiful Bermuda and slowly adjusting to the New York chill. My trip was an absolute whirlwind. We stayed at the gorgeous Fairmont Southampton for the incredible Fairmont Gold experience. We started shooting bright and early Thursday December 4th and wrapped up 48 hours later on Friday December 5th. It definitely took some getting used to being the camera's subject for an entire photoshoot, especially 13 hour days. Usually I'm on the opposite side, documenting my subject through illustration.

I'm so thrilled to share that in two days I will be flying off to Bermuda with my favorite magazine Conde Nast Traveler and Bermuda Tourism to curate and illustrate my cultural experience on the island. Though a lot of my adventure will be shared in realtime on my Instagram @travelwritedraw, my photos and illustrations will also be printed in the March issue of Conde Nast Traveler!! I can't wait to share my inspirations and interpretations of Bermudian art, architecture, and unique experiences with all of you. Travel Write Draw is truly a pipe dream willed into reality and I'm overjoyed to be sharing the realization with all of you near and far.
See you on the flipside sugarplums!!

Good Evening My Loves,
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!! I'm just returning from a long weekend in Toronto and gearing up for another very exciting travel adventure this Wednesday (more on that shortly)!! Last month I helped HANRO of Switzerland, a super luxe undergarments company, celebrate their 130th Anniversary at Saks illustrating live customer portraits. This was such an intimate (no pun intended) affair. I really felt like I had the opportunity to chat with each one of my recipients that night.
Kim Caldwell, pictured above, just started her very own bra fitting and personal consulting company www.hurraykimmay.com. She had such incredibly positive energy, I really wanted to share a bit more from her here on Travel Write Draw. It's amazing how much living in my own passion attracts people who do the same. It is so inspiring to meet and surround myself with other likeminded entrepreneurs. You can do whatever you put your mind to you just have to believe!!
Can't wait to share the next, and very imminent, Travel Write Draw adventure!! New post coming right up.
