Not pictured: the start to my day was spilling coffee on my white duvet that my grandmother gave me. I immediately doused the lace bed-dressing with Shout and threw it in the wash. It miraculously survived!  Why am I telling you this? To peel back the thick and luxurious curtain that an Instagram or blog […]

The smell of my mother’s Chance Chanel perfume contains traces of my childhood. The notes of musky vanilla espoused with floral breaths of jasmine and iris take me back to her bathroom sink as she applied on makeup from compacts of interlocked ‘C’s.

As my Dior Backstage Pop-Up makeup artist, Tara applied Dior’s Capture Youth: Age Delay Advanced Creme (also super reassuring hearing from her that I present no signs of aging, yay!) onto my face, we gushed about Christian Dior’s history as a brand.

Inside the Armani Redbox Pop-up

Everyone has their ‘power’ color: a hue that when you wear it, it makes you feel as if you can take on the world fearlessly.

A couturier uses needle as its pen, thread as its ink to weave together a story—a fairytale if you will— that wakes up that part of humanity that craves beauty and majesty in a world that can feel oftentimes mundane.

These were all things I thought about and felt as I walked as demurely as one can in heels across a boardwalk of uneven wood with holes between, […]

Monochromatic for the Maximalist

For whatever reason, I’ve had a new color–or lack thereof–obsession this season: beige. The muted color is quite overlooked at times, but I can assure you that wearing it will not make you fall flat.
