My "Valentine's Day at Home" Video Feature on No Name, New York!

I'm going to try to pretend that I don't find it absolutely mortifying to watch video of myself, because I have some exciting news! No Name, New York, a lifestyle web series that covers emerging designers, art, food, fashion, and anything culturally inspired by New York City, asked me to contribute to their Valentine's Day episode! And THEN they asked me to be their "Resident Party Planner"!! Okay, calming down. The Valentine's episode has two parts: a night in and a night out. I bet you've guessed that I was all over the night in. I styled two different Valentine's celebrations for the home - a girlfriends' crafternoon and a table setting for a romantic dinner for two.
No Name, New York Episode 7 "Valentine's Day"
Laura and Dana (the creators & super hip hosts) and Darren (film genius) came by my apartment to film what I had styled, with me describing each element. So you'll see a little sneak peek of my Valentine's bar cart design, which I'll also cover in a full post on Monday. I can't explain how much FUN this team is to be around. (Which is why I'm grinning like an idiot in the screen shot above). We share a love of cheese, desserts, and - most importantly - champagne. Plus all three of them really helped me to ignore the camera and pretend we were just at a party. I seriously didn't want them to leave! You can watch the full video here (I come in around 2:30). Also, in a few days they'll be posting "B-Side" videos of the dessert I prepared - individual brown sugar bundt cakes with chocolate sauce and whipped cream - just in case you haven't gotten enough of me embarrassing myself.
