Bag Collection 2020


I uploaded my updated bag collection video! It's been a highly requested video for a few months now and I am so glad to finally share it with you guys. This collection has been curated over a few years and I try to edit whenever I see fit, selling pieces I no longer reach for, make room for new additions, etc. Since my 2019 Bag Collection video, there have been a few changes. I linked some of the pieces in my collection down below, most are from pre-loved sites if I was able to track them down. Since a few are seasonal styles, those were a bit trickier to link, but if there's any in particular that you're really looking for, keep an eye out on the pre-loved market since sometimes these do pop up every now and then. Enjoy!

Decor at Home: Farfetch


All this time at home has definitely helped me really figure out what decorative pieces I want to add to the house, how to better mix materials, what is beautiful but still functional, etc. My style has definitely changed over the years, but I've especially learned a lot since Marco and I bought our home. I was able to find a few pieces from Farfetch, and even answered a few questions on my decor style in this article on their website!

Check out some of my selects from Farfetch down below.

How To Help


It has been heavy and I am still trying to learn and educate myself more on ways to help and have these conversations. Not just with sharing a hashtag, but how to actually show up and act and help justice be served. You guys have seen the headlines, watched videos, saw photos of what's been happening. There's so much being shared online and I wanted to put together some links and other information that may be helpful, if like me, you have felt lost and not known what to do despite wanting to. This is a human rights issue and we need to stand up to these injustices. It is not enough to not be racist, but important to actively be anti-racist. We cannot simply say we are an ally to the cause without acting.

#AMGoHome: Kitchen Cabinets


If it isn't apparent already, I've been doing tons of organizing around the house. From the beginning, we knew we wanted to have an organized home, but during this time, I've been kicking things up a notch and I am really loving how it's all turning out! I've linked the containers, labels, and what not down below.
