created with love by my beautiful friend, aubrey, from aubrey plays.

i couldn't have worked with someone sweeter. aubrey created just what i asked for and then some. my heart skipped a beat when i opened the package the beauty book was in. she was quick to reply to my 294 emails about fabric and word choices, and really just blessed me through this whole process. thank you a million times over, aubrey. the beauty book is just what i envisioned and i can't wait for the pages to be filled with so many beautiful women's stories.

speaking of filling things, i want to fill my entire house with items from aubrey's shop. someone buy me that mustache cozy and i play with monsters bag PRONTO.
