Explore a new hobby, improve your craft, or study with many creative greats in this catalog of on demand classes. The more we learn, the more we grow! Masterclass is one of my favorite ways to keep inspired and motivated to create.

I had this item on my wish list for years and now that I have one I can't believe I ever lived without it.
This little machine keeps me caffeinated. looks gorgeous on the counter and has officially turned me into a coffee snob.

After using a similar bag until it literally turned to shreds, I upgraded to this chic, sustainably made tote bag that I use to carry my laptop and accessories. Whether I'm traveling across the ocean or down the street to the coffee shop, my Cuyana bag never leaves my side.

It's fun to get fancy, but for the most part a prefer a natural, everyday sort of look. Ilia's makeup not only feels light on your skin, but when you wear it, you still feel like you. Best of all, it's made from clean ingredients so you can feel great about wearing it too, Their mascara is a dream!

Everyone's hair is different, so why would we all use the same thing? Prose custom-creates formulas for all of your hair care products based on your age, hair type, goals and climate. Plus it smells amazing.
