For Sugar and Style (formerly China Doll Boutique) 
Models: Michaela @ Zone models and Sophie Beaty
Make up and hair: Leah Mabe 
Styling: Dario Bentivegna
Location: The House Next Door (Castle Gibson) 

This is a lookbook shoot we did back in May in an absolutely beautiful location named The House Next Door. We had a completely different shoot planned, but when it looked like it would rain the whole day we changed the location at the last moment, which was a bit of a challenge, because I usually shoot outdoors and I had to step out of my comfort zone for this one (and I'm doing that more and more). 
I'm always really happy to work with Nhuc Tran, owner of the boutique, who is the loveliest person ever. I was also really excited to work with the wonderful Leah Mabe, I love her make up work. On the day we shot probably more than 25 outfits and when I got back home in the evening I basically passed out and didn't get up till the next morning.

what was left of the summer

 In August I went to Rock Nights/Galapagai festival. The weather was perfect and it was fun, because we had friends there, but the festival itself was really disappointing and was definitely not Rock Nights at all anymore, more like rap nights.
His t-shirt basically says what I thought about the festival. (he included the word penis in the official name).
Vika (my best friend, who you might remember if you follow me for a long time, she was my first model) bleached and dyed her hair white and then we celebrated her birthday.
And a few instagrams from Yaga festival (follow me at @ailera)
