Y’all, I’m really damn proud of what I’m about to tell you!
A few months ago, my best friend Belinda Martin (the most sensational Fashion Stylist ever) and I were having a “two Rosé” lunch at a French restaurant. Yes, a “two Rosé” lunch is what you think it is, and nearly every time we have one, we come up with an inspirational idea.
Belinda told me about a shoot she was planning with floral head dresses, brightly coloured dresses, and I was like, “oh hey gurl, what if we used some of my drinks in the shoot with pretty glassware and flowers for garnishes!” She was way into it! YES!
So a couple of weeks later, we booped up on to her roof with a crew of really talented people and shot some very sensational photos. It was hot as all hell and due to the reflective nature of the silver-painted-roof, we were burnt to shit.
Actually, haha, that day is what inspired the drink Sunburn Club.
Katy & Belinda getting Megan ready. Note Katy’s righteous shoulder sunburn.
Daphne looking cool as a cucumber with a fabulous Summer Martini.
Always have your drinks ready to go before a shoot. Then you don’t have to freak about ingredients.
Camera ready Aviation with makeup brushes.
Well, the photos were so totally awesome that we got our editorial featured in Lucy’s Magazine Volume 16 and we even got the cover! Enjoy a few of the photos here and check the rest out on Lucy’s website or go get the magazine!

A blue Daiquiri with a white Hydrangea garnish and the most outrageous head piece I’ve ever seen. MAGNIFIQUE!
Title shot for the editorial piece, “Je Rêve des Fleurs” translates to “I dream of flowers.”
I’m so excited about this and so grateful to have worked with such amazing people!
