Happy Monday y’all!
I am SO excited about this post today for so many different reasons. I have always believed in following my own dreams, the power of positivity and the importance of supporting other women. I have been lucky enough to know fabulous women who have followed their own dreams and have encouraged me to follow mine. I have also been lucky enough to be surrounded by really good friends who lift each other up and support each other. We need more women like that in the world!!
Even though I have just started my blogging journey I have already met so many amazing women and been introduced to so many amazing companies run by #girlbosses. T&J Designs is one of those companies. Owners Jennifer and Tiffany are gorgeous sisters who started out as bloggers, one based in Chicago and the other in Seattle. After blogging for a few years they decided to pursue their dreams to own their own business and opened their online boutique called T&J Designs. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch party for their Fall line this past weekend and it was absolutely incredible. Check out some of my favorite items below!!
I am obsessed with their sequin skirts. Sam always makes fun of me and tells me that most of the time when I tell him I “need” something, I don’t actually need it (cough cough #shopaholic). Contrary to his beliefs I actually do need one of these skirts. How perfect would it be for a holiday party?! They also have the most charming t-shirts and gorgeous jewelry that is surprisingly (and thankfully) affordable.
The party was held at Donna Hall’s incredible lakefront condo. Donna is the owner of Donna Mondi Interiors, was recently named one of the “Best 15 Interior Designer’s in Chicago” and is another perfect example of a #girlboss. I am so fortunate that I see beautiful homes everyday because of my job but Donna’s house is truly one of a kind. Her dining room literally took my breath away. I spent the first half an hour of the party taking pictures of just about every room in her house because I was in awe. I included some pictures below that I found on her website so you could see it for yourself! If you want to check out Donna’s website, the link is here!
Thank you SO much to Jennifer and Tiffany for inviting me and Donna for being such a gracious host. I am so happy and grateful that I get to mingle with women who are truly following their dreams and so supportive of one another! I wish the pictures I had from that night would have come out better so y’all could have seen what it was like. Another #girlboss that I have to give one last shout out to is my new friend Yvonne who is the owner of Penthouse Sweets. They made all of the desserts for the party and they were fabulous. I am going to attach a picture from her Instagram below and you can find her website here. I 100% recommend her if you are looking for someone in the Chicago area. The sweets were delicious and she is such a doll!
You can find T&J Designs here, and also make sure you check out both of their blogs below. Have a great week and thank you so much for reading!!
