I love writing and I love paradise. I recently wrote a post promoting one of my naturally luxe affiliates, Lilysilk, but I worried that you, my fabulous reader, would think my writing had taken a turn.
To maintain the two worlds separately, I have opened a “boutique” page exclusively for browsing, scrolling, surfing, window shopping and actual shopping. Now, I feel better. I’ll have my usual posts and my Paradise Boutique. I really love my affiliate’s products. They’re naturally luxe (my newly created slogan)!
I’m so stoked about this boutique thing because I feel like my own designer, in that I came up with the theme, the set up, the slogan, the design and I get to choose the products I feature. Pretty badass right?! It’s like another form of aesthetic expression. I’m especially stoked about this line called Braintree. It’s like a mix of my early twenties hippie self and my womanly professional self.
Above all, they promo sustainable living and stick to super neat materials/fabrics made from beautiful things like bamboo and hemp etc. Another coconut on this palm is the men’s wear too. It’s actually hot and sophisticated but with subtle details like wooden buttons. My fiancé and my dad (if you can believe) actually liked the pieces.
I feel like I’ve made a new discovery. Braintree is from Australia, a continent I’ve never visited, but one I’ve dreamed about since I was five when I learned about koalas, kangaroos and good waves.
Call me a dreamer. Call me an artist. Call me a dork. Call me a pirate. I am all of the above. And this boutique project has become another adventure, one that I can share with you! Also, hopefully, it will make your lives easier by offering a stress free place to do some shopping (especially with the holidays approaching!).
I’m so pleased to announce that three of my poems, “Slots,” “Scraping” and “Make a Decision” have been published in Barking Sycamores Literary Magazine Issue 13.

A stereotype as defined by Merriam-Webster is “an often unfair and untrue belief that many people have about all people or things with a particular characteristic.” Colloquially, the term, stereotype, “is used to categorize a group of people. People don’t understand that type of person, so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who […]
Susan J. Fowler, a former employee of Uber, published a post on her blog revealing numerous counts of sexual harassment and discrimination she experienced while working for the company. Her post is straightforward and pretty bias-free; her tone is calm, but frank. While some of her experiences at the company might appall readers, her author’s […]
