If you’re a maximalist like me, you probably have way too much jewelry and random accessories (this is a good thing, folks). I believe it’s important that those PYTs have equally pretty homes. I’m not really a huge fan of lucite boxes because while they’re very helpful in order to… Read more >

Live Brilliantly: I No Longer

Meryl Streep has always been one of my favorite actresses- not just because of her extraordinary talent but because she knows who she is and unapologetically speaks her mind about everything.
