Cheg Diaries - Cup #something

I'm sitting here trying to finish up a show review and I'm drinking a homemade eggnog chai. Haven't had one in awhile. Switched to those caramel brulee lattes.

I haven't been updating like I had hoped. December turned into the month from crazy hell! From preparing for the Philly Punk Rock Flea Market to interviewing the bassist of one of my favorite bands to getting an early Christmas present of a photo pass for another band I die for...And now we're ending the month and year with deadmau5 performing on New Year's Eve.

The Punk Rock Flea Market was an interesting time. Once we got setup and rolling, the time went by fast, which was surprising. But was a learning experience and now all I can say is look out for other events I'll be vending at. I do everything backwards, so we're talking big events.

I had hoped a lot more images were going to be coming my way, but waiting on submissions and's an annoying process sometimes! But I'm stoked to be doing my first shoot of the year next week with Creepshow Photography! She is also the first photographer I've ever shot with too! Annnddd....I have a video to show off from Keep Me From Dreaming directed by Jesse Fox and you can find my clothing scattered about. YAY!

So until then...Happy New Year Everyone!

The Cheg Diaries - Cup #8

This one was from before heading over to the studio of Sumie Tachibana for a holiday trunk show. There was racks and tables of her designs and I was so upset because I adore her work, but am broke. There was also jewelry sellers, vintage glove dealer and an old student of Sumie's, was selling soap she and her mother make. I got the Lavendar scent and am excited to use it! There's also soap making classes and other sewing classes at the studio. I found info at Here

It was such a nice day seeing those lovely ladies and then went to this great restaurant - BANY - yum! Sushi. And as if I needed any more caffeine (again I would regret this later), went to this punk rock ultra-hipster coffee shop Sweet Leaf. The barista even made a leaf in the latte's foam. So cute!

Than was able to hit up Buffalo Exchange and Beacon's Closet, though I didn't buy anything. No band shirts for me. But my friend bought records at Sound Fix across the way. That place reminds me so much of Skífan in Iceland.

Oh! And at Beacon's Closet, they were like doing a documentary of the place and interviewing people outside. The hipsters scared me. And it seemed yesterday was the day for everyone to be selling at these two thrift stores and the hopeful sellers scared me even more. haha

Back to work for the Philly Punk Rock Flea Market!

Still confused as to what the 'Cheg Diaries' are? Read my intro HERE

Cheg Diaries - Cup #7

Ok, so it's the bag my cranberry bliss bar came in, but I accidentally threw out my cup.

I had been helping out at a nearby theater for two days and I got an eggnog chai to keep me going. Turned out, the barista put a shot of espresso in it. They sometimes do by accident and it wasn't bad, but I was kind of upset. Plus I think the extra caffeine caused me to crash real bad later that night and then feel sick. I was supossed to go out, but instead passed out at home.

It's been fun seeing the behind the scenes inner workings of what goes on for a theater performance. They're doing A Christmas Carol, so the costumes are awesome. The women's skirts and corset tops are heavey as all hell. I want to play dress up, but alas, I would probably be too big even if I could.

Getting ready for the Philly Punk Rock Flea Market. Will post a blog later. Come out and say hi!
