It’s Friday!!!! I had a very rewarding week and I wanted to share one of the highlights with you. Many of you know that public speaking is one of my biggest fears! I get severe stage fright even when speaking in front of a small group of people (I blame it on my voice cracking on stage as the star of my 3rd grade play LOL.) Being in front of an audience is intimidating am I right?! This week I had 2 public speaking engagements. I’ve been saying yes to every speaking opportunity that has come my way this year in an effort to get over my phobia. It’s helping for sure – and slowly, I’m getting more comfortable. I wanted to share a video from the talk show I spoke at on Wednesday where I opened up about the business of blogging and how I got my start in the industry (I come on at the 23 minute mark.) I chat about how I put myself through college, my career background, heartbreak, and even touch on my love life ;) I hope you enjoy it! And as requested…another Currently Coveting post. Have a wonderful weekend!
TGIF! I haven’t done a Currently Coveting post in AGES so I had to bring it back with all of my fave goodies for fall. These booties are such a steal – and look so much more expensive than they are. I couldn’t resist splurging on this Chloe bag for fall. I always love Chloe bags but often feel they’re too “trendy” and will go out of style when the next “it” bag comes out. This particular Chloe bag felt classic and true to me. Rag & Bone makes the best fedoras – and if you’re looking to invest in one – get this one. I’ve been raving about this highlighter and if you haven’t already bought it I highly suggest you do. It’s a real game changer for my cheekbones! This midi skirt looks so elegant and I know I could wear it a million different ways. You can’t go wrong with a lace up cream sweater – and this one is under $50. And who can resist a black and white plaid scarf to layer over or under a camel coat? Have a great weekend!
It’s here! My 5th collection of leather travel accessories with Gigi New York/Graphic Image is now available! And you’re in luck – every item is included in their Friends and Family sale :) Take 30% off my colorful journals, datebooks, passport holders, and luggage tags. These items all make amazing birthday, Christmas, and bridesmaid gifts (and of course you should buy one for yourself too!) For this season’s designs – I went with beautiful crocodile embossed leathers and the softest french goatskin in ivory, white, light pink, mint green, tan and grey. The datebooks look gorgeous on any desk and are perfect if you’re a pen to paper gal like me. I put one of the luggage tags on every single one of my suitcases, and I never travel without my passport holder, which also has a sleeve for your boarding pass. The journals are a must – and I keep one on my nightstand to write down my ideas, dreams, or things I’m grateful for. I also love to travel with these journals and jot down notes or amazing restaurants that I stumble upon. To celebrate the launch of my collection (I still can’t believe this is #5!!!!) – I’m giving away an entire set of monogrammed pieces to one lucky reader. To enter, simply follow me on Instagram, and repost the giveaway photo from my instastory ON YOUR instastory! Be sure to tag me so I can see :) Brownie points if you post it on your actual Instagram page! Have a great weekend xx
