adventures of a Broadway dresser
BEFRIEND THE BLONDE:
FOLLOW THE ADVENTURE ON INSTAGRAM
This blog post is super exciting because I'm taking you on a little tour of my best friend's new apartment! (Click here for a tour of my current home.) Along with being my bestie, LJ Wright is a Broadway dresser, Bravo TV enthusiast and proud dog mom. (Click here to learn more about her life as a dresser and click here to read the post I wrote for her birthday last year.) I love going over to her apartment because it's so easy to walk over there from work AND who doesn't love cuddling with an adorable dog!? So I hope you enjoy checking out her new space, and let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more Broadway home tours!
Today’s edition of On The Road features the incredibly talented Austin Scott! Austin grew up in Benicia, California, and is a San Francisco State University alum. You might recognize him from his time on the Hamilton national tour in which he played the title role of Alexander Hamilton. While Austin was in Washington, D.C., with the tour back in August, he met up with my friend Karl Magnuson, and they got some epic shots of him around the Capital! I’m so excited for you to meet my new friend. Make sure to check him out on Instagram AND on Broadway where he is currently starring as Hamilton!
I am so excited to share something special with you all today! Earlier this week after our shows ended, Rob Harmon and I gathered a group of our Broadway friends in Times Square to film a music video remake of the hit Maggie Rogers song “Light On”. The world feels a little dark right now so we wanted to share some light and joy - from the brightest part of New York City! I hope this video makes you as happy as it has made us!
This edition of On The Road features the handsome and talented Chaundre Hall-Broomfield! Dre is a Newburgh, NY, native and earned a BFA in acting from Purchase College. He’s currently traveling around the country with Hamilton's Angelica tour! Dre plays the roles of Hercules Mulligan and James Madison, so when his company was in Washington, D.C., I absolutely had to get a picture of him next to the Madison statue in the Library of Congress! I love how Dre's personality shines through all of these images. I hope you enjoy getting to know my new friend as much as I have!
This isn't a revolutionary statement, but MOVING IS HARD. It's especially challenging when you are a proud maximalist like me. I lived in my last apartment for three years and had ample storage space. Over that time period I accumulated a lot of junk and never had to get rid of anything. So when I decided to pack up and move downtown into a tiny apartment, I had to make some major changes. Just in case any of you are moving soon, I compiled a list of random things that helped my moving process a little bit easier!
It's no secret I am a gigantic Harry Potter fan. I have been in love with those books since the first one was released when I was seven years old! The final book came out the summer I graduated from high school, which was such a dramatic and poetic way to say goodbye to my childhood. It was extremely hard for me to narrow this down to a top ten, but I compiled a list below of my favorite quotes from the books.
Before my big move a few months ago, I did tons of research on every home goods product you can imagine. I like being an educated consumer! Quality is extremely important to me, especially when buying products I’ll use regularly. This blog post highlights a handful of new products I found that have helped make my new apartment feel like home!
