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.

Valentine’s Day Date and Gift Ideas

Buying a gift for the man in your life can be quite difficult. Every man is different with different tastes and preferences. Johnny isn’t too picky, but I enlisted his help. In this post, we are sharing some Valentine’s Day date and gift ideas to help you (and him) plan your perfect day for this holiday. It doesn’t have to be stressful. Remember, this holiday is about expressing your love to another person. A gift doesn’t have to be grand or expensive. A thoughtful, meaningful gift or experience could mean the world to your significant other.

The Four Products I Use for Kitchen Organization

It’s been about two weeks since Johnny and I moved into our new Dallas apartment. Making sure the kitchen gets organized and ready to go is a huge priority for us. When you enter our apartment, the kitchen is one of the first spaces you see and we want it to be organized and clutter-free. Of course, there are days where it’s messy and items are strewn all over the island. That said, kitchen organization is very important to us so this was the first room we tackled as we unpacked. We are very blessed to have plenty of storage and space in this kitchen. My previous apartment in Norfolk had barely any storage space, so I understand. That said, we are still settling into the apartment, so I’m sure we’ll begin to accumulate some things as time passes. However, having a set guideline as far as kitchen organization goes will keep us on track and neat! This can be a daunting task, so I’m sharing the four products I use for kitchen organization.
