Haven

Haven describes the first challenge and her discomfort around Merlin.

May 7, 2009

The First Day
Today was pretty cool, a new adventure for Haven. Today we found out that our hosts were Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland. They both looked lovely. It was a bit nerve-racking and very tiring. We had to take a basic black t-shirt and re-engineer it into a little black dress. I made a black dress with a cinched waist and turtle neck. It could have been better but Laura from Harper's Bazzar said that it was chic, young, and Lower East Side. Alright, I guess. Isaac said it was well proportioned, so that was nice. Johnny R. was the winner! His design was perfect! I want to own that dress. He chose Reco (who is also from Chatanooga TN, my home town!!!), Markus, Laura, and myself to be on his team. I was so glad to be on that team. I love them already! My favorite person here is Markus. He is my new best friend and so attractive. We also moved into our suites tonight. My roommates are great, I’m enjoying my time so far. Tomorrow I will continue working on the new group challenge. So far, so good.

The First Elimination
Merlin is f--king crazy!!! My roommates and I are completely uncomfortable around him. He is deluded. Today was so stressful. I wasn’t happy with my design and thought that I might be going home. Turns out, I was safe. Sadly, Jonny Day went home. Elimination was interesting. Merlin once again was over-the-top and scary. I was so excited to see that Fern Mallis and Elie Tahari were the guest judges. Johnny D. and Kristin were on the chopping block. Jonny went home. We had a few (or more) beers in the suite after a long day. We were having such a great time until we (my roommates and I) got into an argument with Merlin. Still waiting to be resolved. Tomorrow is our photo shoot!

P.S. Markus painted my nails and warmed me up a cookie before bed
P.S.S. I want vodka, seriously
