The Five Books Everyone Should Read

“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” -Mark TwainGrowing up, I was a huge bookworm. My family instilled the love and power of reading in me since I was a child. Going to the library was equivalent to getting an ice cream cone for me! I would speed through the library’s summer reading list for my age or grade and enjoy every moment. That love grew every year and as an adult I still love to read. Nowadays, I do a lot of audiobooks just so I can get things done around the house or get through a book when I’m driving. There are countless books out there but I want to recommend five books every woman should read. Not only will these inspire you, but help you grow, become a better person and lead you down a path toward success. Some are more practical and full of knowledge you can apply. Some will take you to another world and get your creative juices flowing.

My Current Spring Beauty Regimen

Spring is all about refreshing. Once winter is over and warmer weather starts showing its colors, I love to revamp my beauty drawer and swap colors out. One of my most asked questions revolves around my beauty routine, so in today’s post I’m sharing my current spring beauty regimen. This post will include skincare, haircare, the tools I use and of course my makeup. I’ll break down each of my favorites and why I love it. Some of these are holy-grail favorites I’ve used for years. While some are new favorites I can’t live without.

The Three Best Joggers for Women

Maybe it’s the former athlete in me, but I cannot resist a pair of good joggers.  It can be hard to find the right pair of joggers to fit and flatter you. Some can be too baggy, too long, too tight or even too short. In this post, I want to share the best joggers for women I’ve found. I’ll never forget how I stumbled upon both of these joggers. They were not filed under the jogger section, actually. However, I remember seeing the fit on the model and thinking, “These are it!” There are two pairs I’m featuring in this post. One is high waisted and has a more subtle look. The other sits lower on the waist and features the iconic Nike swoosh. I recommend both but if you’re only going to get one, I hope this helps you decide between the two.

Dallas Apartment Decor Update

By now, most of you know we moved to Dallas. Reading each of your comments about our new home is just heartwarming. Moving into this stunning apartment still feels like a whirlwind. Especially with Vietnamese New Year being right after our move-in date, things have been so hectic to make sure we get our place clean and settled properly. We wouldn’t want to ring in the new Lunar New Year in a bad way! While our home is far from finished, I want to share an apartment decor update with y’all. This way you can see the space as it comes together and see our process. Clearly, I’m no expert but I love to add things as I feel they’re needed. Plus, I believe keeping an open mind is key. Being in this apartment has taught us a few things when it comes to layout and design.

Designing A Top for Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection

Happy FriYay! I have some huge news to share with y’all and I’m beyond excited! A dream of mine for years is coming true: designing a top for Gibson x International Women’s Day collection! The collection launches March 8 on International Women’s Day and is available at Nordstrom. The top I’m designing is versatile so it’ll be great for both work and the weekend. I can easily see myself restyling it multiple times for different settings and I know you will, too! It comes in two colors and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you once the final samples are complete! Being able to share the process with y’all is very exciting and I can’t wait to share what’s next. One reason I love the top I’m designing in particular is its versatility. You’ll be flattering on so many different women. Plus, Gibson offers sizes XXS Petite to XXXL.
