HOW DO YOU FEEL IN THIS MOMENT?
A little sleepy since it's mid afternoon.
CAN YOU GIVE US THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU AS A PERSON?
Wandering, curious, relaxed
WHAT DOES YOUR IDEAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
An ideal day for me is just following my boring little routine: making breakfast and coffee, doing something productive with my morning energy, going for a walk to lunch with my husband, feeding neighborhood cats, maybe doing a little yoga and then putting my feet up and watching a good horror movie.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR VINTAGE JEWELY BRAND, SOUVENIR. HOW DID IT START?
I started working on it during my honeymoon as a way to bring back little Souvenirs from different places I visited. I really connected with this idea of tying jewelry to specific places and moments in time.
WHAT MAKES JEWELRY SPECIAL FOR YOU?
I love how totemic a piece of jewelry can be. How slipping on something so tiny can totally affect how you feel on a personal level. Make you feel nostalgic or optimistic or strong.

WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
Inside a sauna, 2:25pm
WHAT'S YOUR MOOD TODAY?
Thirsty and pumped. Lol I just fed my 1 month old baby girl.
WHAT'S IT LIKE NOW THAT YOU'RE A MOM. WHAT HAS CHANGED?
It’s a learning process — being a mother and a partner at the same time. But I’m continuously discovering new things about myself which has been challenging but also very rewarding.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SELF CARE ACTIVITY?
Does shopping count? *wink* I love jewelry and bags so I do indulge myself once in a while. I also love reading about skin care. Sneaking in a sweat session instantly lifts up the mood too.
WHAT'S CURRENTY ON YOUR JEWELRY TRAY?
I almost never take off my diamond engagement ring and tri-color stackable rings (both by Nami). My base would be a watch and bracelets/bangles and a necklace. You will see me rotate different things, I love mixing and matching — this week I've been reaching for my diamond necklace a lot, and I layer it with this vintage gold omega chain that I'm currently very fond of.
WHICH PIECE OR TRINKET FROM YOUR COLLECTION SPARKS THE MOST JOY?
I will never get tired of looking and appreciating the beauty of my engagement ring 🤍

WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?
Currently, in a rebellious state of mind — Breaking (my) rules, doing what feels good to feel alive.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE JEWELRY AND WHY? IS THERE A SPECIAL MEMORY ATTACHED TO IT?
One of my favorite pieces are from my grandparents, a round pendant with their initials and a blue sapphire in the middle, a gift to all 25 grandchildren on their 70th wedding anniversary. It was such a special occasion celebrating 70 years of their love together with the whole family being in one place, I will never forget how happy my grandfather was entering the ballroom with my grandma like a newly wedded couple.
