Personally, I buy so many items during this sale because I’m stocking up and try not to buy other items until the next sale. There are a couple of important things to remember so I’m breaking them down here. Read more…

What Happens When You Drive A Tesla Model X into the Virginia Mountains (Part 1)

Visiting the mountains in Virginia was actually a priority for me when I got a job offer in Norfolk more than a year ago. I remember being blown away when Johnny and I made the cross-country trek from Nebraska. It was then I decided we had to make a trip. I got the thrilling opportunity to work with Rent an EV. Erick and Chelsea are a couple who understands the hustle and are working to build a business while helping others get a feel for driving electric vehicles. After an orientation, we got the keys to a Tesla Model X! In case it’s not obvious from my Instagram stories, Johnny and I love, love, love Tesla. It’s a goal to have one of our own, so being able to rent one was incredible. We brought along our good friend Toan, who gets credit for these stunning images… Read more…

Sanctuary :: My Bedroom Decor with Leesa + west elm

Hi Friends! As y’all may know, I take my sleep very seriously. It’s been almost nine months since I got my Leesa mattress and I’m teaming up with Leesa and west elm to share details of my sanctuary aka my bedroom decor. I’m so in love with how my bedroom looks and it makes me feel at peace and cozy. To me, my bedroom is my sanctuary. It’s my safe place and where I go to unwind, rejuvenate and prepare for the day ahead. I don’t like to do very many things other than sleep in my bedroom. I feel like that helps me with a good night’s sleep. Plus, having a mattress that allows my body to get the rest it needs while bedding and decor make it all beautiful is icing on the cake. Read more…

My Tassel Earrings Launch with olive + piper!

Oh my goodness! I’m over the moon excited about this blog post. I got the incredible opportunity to design a pair of earrings with olive + piper, one of my favorite jewelry brands! These are the Saigon Tassel Earrings and they are everything I could ever want in earrings. I named them after the Capital of Vietnam, which my family fled from after the communist party took over following the end of the Vietnam War. To me, being aware of my family’s incredible struggle and sacrifice motivates me to work even harder and to succeed. Plus, Saigon is a stunning city and a beautiful name. Read more…

Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it. Read more…
