We had a super small gathering with just a few people to celebrate our girl in person. December Birthday December birthdays can be tricky with so much holiday activity…

My Favorite Red Lipsticks

November 25, 2020

There’s a stretch of the year when I love to wear red lipsticks and we are in the thick of it. A bold or bright red lip for the holiday season always feels so festive and chic, so this time of year, red is a frequent choice. I’m not sure why I don’t wear it more throughout the rest of the year, but it just…

Introducing a New Place to Shop Online…

September 21, 2020

“Nothing ever becomes real until it is experienced.” I remember flipping through magazines as a teenager daydreaming about my own little boutique one day.

(Does anyone else keep a list of places to go when wanderlust strikes?) I typically…
