It’s a strange world that we live in. Now that generative AI is so commonplace, it’s reasonable to start distrusting everything that you see and read. The ability to make images of whatever you want is… well, it’s pretty cool honestly. When I do photoshoots, which I try and do at least once a year, it’s typical to spend some thousand or so dollars on a flight, hotel room, food, new clothes, camera stuff, etc etc. And what do I get out of it? A bunch of pictures of me (and a mini vacation!). But in this new terrifying age, […]

I had some time alone at home this week, which I mostly used to watch a LOT of movies. I wasn’t really feeling like dressing up – I was mostly feeling incredibly lazy, so taking even the most miniscule amount of pictures felt like a huge effort. Plus it’s winter, so the light was fading. And I started late. Oh yeah, did I mention I was feeling incredibly lazy? It felt like a colossal effort to do my nails, shave, do my makeup. Maybe it’s just because it’s winter and the days are a lot shorter. Maybe it’s because I […]

The Shortest Photoshoot

Well, we’re back in Las Vegas. “But Liz, didn’t you do this just a few short months ago?!” I hear you screeching. Yes. Yes I did. And it wasn’t the best trip – mostly due to the fact that I lost a whole day to what one may describe as “a vomity migraine”, though honestly, that wasn’t the only thing. On that trip in particular, I only really got out of the room dressed a couple of times – once for dinner, and once for lunch. I had grander plans, but I either chickened out (just a little bit) or […]

Las Vegas 2023, again?!

I had a lot of high hopes for this trip. The last trip I went on ended abruptly after I got COVID before I could even dress up – that was ten months ago. I realised in the run-up to my Las Vegas trip in May that I hadn’t actually dressed up since then. A whole ten months. Life tends to get in the way, I suppose. Between getting through six months of constantly being sick from kid-germs, to general life/work stress and scheduling woes, finding the right combination of time/opportunity/energy/willpower to actually get my shit together seemed like such […]

Las Vegas 2023



My typical strategy when being out and about in the world is to avoid toilets at all costs. I don’t think that’s been a particularly winning strategy. Anyway, I wrote an actual song about my current toilet angst. Feel free to check it out <3

I need to pee

I need a vacation. The last time I actually dressed up was… 8 months ago? I don’t really know how it’s been so long. Oh wait, yes I do. I know exactly why I haven’t dressed up in months. Here’s the recipe: Get a large bowl and add: Mix well, and pop the fucker in the oven and in 20 minutes you’ll have yourself A long, unwelcome dry-spell. Liz never goes away though. She’s under there, doing stuff. I haven’t really figured out how to live in suburbia yet – can I just take a walk around the block in […]

A friend of mine was getting married in Rhode Island, and so our little friend group all flew/drove in from across the country to hang out! I had arrived on Monday, with plans to hang out with everyone all of that week. The wedding was on Saturday, which would give us a day of recovery on Sunday, and then I’d fly back home on Monday. I had picked out a pretty cool outfit for the wedding – a sundress, cardigan if it got cold, hat, shoes. I was ready. I landed on Monday, and we hung out on the beach […]
