My Birthday!! And Then A Quick Update

My birthday was on March 31st and I celebrated last night (April 1st). I had an AMAZING time!! My best friend put together a small dinner party with our close friends. We went to Spice Market in the Meatpacking District. It was the prefect opportunity to get all dolled up. I wore a beautiful orange dress and went crazy with my makeup, I had a lot of fun getting dressed. Here are some pics:

Progress Report

I'm starting to feel really restless again. It's time for me to get back into acting class and I also want to lose some weight, maybe 5-10 pounds. I've gained about 12 pounds this past year and I'm blaming it on getting married. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I can definitely see the extra weight in some of my birthday photos. When I reach my goal weight (what I used to weigh) I want to get new headshots. My manager and legit agent think my current pictures are great but what do they know!? J/K.

But on a serious note, once I make up my mind that I don't like my photos, nothing can make me think differently except getting new ones. And honestly, I want to get new photos because I'm not happy with my weight. I already have a square jaw and chubby cheeks, so any extra weight really shows in my face. That's not good for taking photos. I'm hoping to shoot in June, so that will give me two months to get back to my old weight. If anyone has recommendations on good, decently priced headshots, please post a comment or shoot me an email! I really don't want to spend $900 again, but I will if I feel it's necessary.

I'm also thinking about changing my hair, going straight. It's been on my mind a lot but I'm just not sure that's the right move for me. Changing my hair may make a difference in my TV/Film career path, but it will most certainly have a negative impact on my commercial/commercial print path. And right now, modeling and commercials are my bread and butter. I'm not sure I wanna mess with that stream of income. *sigh* This is what happens when I get restless and bored, I start finding (or imagining) all sorts of flaws.

Anyway, here's what I've been up to...and it ain't much:

1. Last week I was called back in to audition for Law & Order: CI, so that was pretty quick right? The audition went well. I haven't heard anything yet so we shall see.

2. Last time I told you guys I booked Puma again for a 2 day shoot. We shot on the 23rd and 24th, and both days were outdoor shoots. It was SO COLD!! But, everyone had a really good time and the the photos look AMAZING! They won't come out until near the end of this year.

3. I auditioned for a role in this new VH1 series and even though I thought the audition went really well, I didn't get called back. *cries* :(


  1. Gorgeous bday photos, you all looked beautiful & I think your hair looks great :)

  2. 1. Happy Belated Birthday

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!

    PS I just got an email from Babys R Us (I have no idea why) and was super surprised/excited to see you in the ad! Yay!

  4. Thank you all for the birthday comments/compliments, I appreciate it!!

    @Dannielle, will you PLEASE email me the ad? I've never seen any of them. Pretty please!?


  5. Bday pics are gorgeous - you look GREAT! I understand feeling restless and needing change...I'm sure whichever change you make, if any, will be great. Please know that, no matter what, your path will lead to Success :-)

  6. I just tried forwarding the email through a link on the webpage but I didn't get a confirmation so I'm not sure if it worked.

    If not, let me know and I'll try and send you the photo as an attachment.

  7. Hey!

    Randomly came across your blog, and since you asked for h/s recs, I would recommend the guy who did my headshots, Nathan: http://www.nathanjohnsonphotography.com. You can see my headshots on my site, kristenbrancaccio.com.

    Glad to see you're having success, hope you book the L&O part!
