Hello Fall!

Fall officially starts tomorrow! I am so excited and glad that it will not be hot and sticky outside anymore.

It's so weird to me that September is usually the hottest month in the summer. You'd think July would be the crazy month for heat.

Anyway, I want to make more clothes. I have a bunch of ideas for jackets, shirts, and dresses. I said before that I want to make videos again. I do, but I feel like YouTube is on its way out, the 10 year curse, so I am contemplating whether or not I want to use that platform.

More importantly, I want to grow my audience, so more people can experience my art! More music is on the way!

Thank you for supporting me. I love hearing all of your kind words!

Until next Sunday, à tout à l'heure!

Birthday Week!

This was a very big week for me.

I think it is so easy in this society to doubt yourself, to devalue yourself, and to feel like you are worthless. All of these negative thoughts are worthless. Everyone who breathes on this Earth has value; it is just up to each of us to decide what we want to do with our value.

I had the amazing opportunity to celebrate my birthday the entire week. Thank you to everyone who participated!

I had an amazing time! I had dinners. I hung out with people in fashion. I went to exclusive clubs. I went to bars. I went to parties.

For me, this birthday week was a representation of how each day is special. Every day is a great day because I am a part of it and because you are a part of it too.

Until next Sunday, à tout à l'heure!

It’s My Birthday Week!!!

Everything is set for my Prillen Store grand opening on my birthday,  Thursday, September 11th!

25 years ago, in the last bit of the glorious 80s, I made my debut into the world! That sounds so conceited, lol! I'm actually very excited about this week.

It was a running joke for a while that I said I would be celebrating the whole week. I guess I spoke it into happening. I was really thinking I would do something on Thursday, Friday, and maybe Saturday too, but no, now it's the whole week, Sunday to Saturday. I'll wait to tell you next week about the festivities that took place.

Last Sunday I said that I was going to get a few things for the Labor Day sale. I didn't, haha, but I did get the things I needed later in the week: extra sheets and a blanket.

I want to make videos again! I'm really liking the style of Mark E Miller's videos on YouTube. They're vlogs, but they look like mini movies. I was watching one the other day and thought he has to be a fellow film major. He has to be! Then he said he studied film later in the video. I like how his videos have a fun and laid back look but are still professional. His motto is, "Do you know why today's a great day? Because every day's a great day." His videos definitely reflect that.

I'm going to do it. Whatever audience I have with these videos, large or small, I'm going to enjoy making more art!

I'm having so much fun with everything Prillen. I'm glad you're joining me on this adventure!

Oh, and I found the charity that I want to support. Every time you purchase something from Prillen Store, 10% of the proceeds will go to The DoorSince 1972, The Door is a wonderful charity that provides a wide range of services to meet the needs of New York City youth aged 12-21.

Yay! I'm excited!

Until next Sunday, à tout à l'heure!

Meetup.com Is Pretty Neat!

I tried Meetup.com last week, and I was really surprised with the results! I met so many awesome people through the two events I went to last Tuesday and Thursday.

Okay, so on Tuesday I went to a fashion meetup on the rooftop of a hotel in Midtown. You can check out my Instagram for photos. On Thursday I went to a tech meetup in Chelsea.

I feel like it's probably a hit or miss with these types of events, but I look for ones that have a large number of people who click RSVP. I'm guessing the actual number of people who show up is around half of the confirmed list.

Anyway, from one of the meetups, I met this really cool girl who invited me to her birthday party in Brooklyn. It was in a beautiful townhouse near Prospect Park. It was so much fun! Everyone there was extremely nice, and I now how some wonderful people I'm looking forward to hanging out with again.

I'm going to two or three more events this week!

Until next Sunday, à tout à l'heure!
