IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Laura Rubin

I have journaled off an on for most of my life, but in the last 10 years with upping my digital experience, I've definitely slacked off. Something as simple as putting pen to paper feels almost impossible to find time to do. Out of all the wellness tactics and strategies presented to us on the internet, I believe that something as simple as writing could be one of the more profound healing modalities. 

A month or so ago it was perfect timing to meet Laura Rubin - founder of AllSwell Creative - a passion...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Carson Meyer

I first met Carson last December at the Echo Park Craft Fair, and I'm not exaggerating when I say she was literally one of the nicest and most sincere people I've ever met.

Growing up in Malibu, her ethos and compassion for...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Sophie Monet

IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // January Olds

At the beginning of this year I had the pleasure of attending a founders conference for one of our lovely stockists Credo Beauty. I didn't realize how affirming it would be to join such a large group of so many other beauty brand founders.

As in any social setting you have the people you gravitate towards, and January was one of them. She was warm and funny - with...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Kelly Framel

As we all know the internet has had some major changes over the last 10 years. What once seemed like an innocent place for inspiration and information has now turned into a complete overhaul of our world, and the way we interact with people.  Of course I still find a lot of great things online, but it has lost the innocence that it once had - and definitely a lot of the fun.

Kelly Framel takes me back to a time when everything felt a lot more fresh. 

I found Kelly online many years back when she was The Glamourai...
