Hello, fabulous readers! This blog was established in 2006 under the original moniker Life in a Venti Cup. The name has changed but the concept remains the same: this is where I celebrate the very best life has to offer. Luxe living, iconic fashion, vibrant lifestyle elements, far flung destinations and a dash of mini-me chic. My goal is to create a mélange of inspirational content and share my mindset of living life to its fullest potential.

I've recently launched my growing line of home glamorous home accents and framed artwork. You may shop my collection in the online boutique. Each item is individually made with careful attention to detail. From brass and Mongolian wool stools to abstract paintings in gilt frames, these are incredibly pretty offerings for the home that make any space more chic. 

Join me on the journey of creating a memorable life filled with love, laughter and - yes -  incredibly beautiful things. Remember: you can accomplish anything you develop the deep passion to pursue. Live out loud without apology!
