The gal behind

A CITY GIRL AT HEART, OBSESSED with FINE DESIGN, local artists, + continually inspired by my travels. 

i'm

I’m a California-based creative, who in 2015 relocated to the design capital, Copenhagen, Denmark. As the daughter of two artists and designers, it’s no surprise that I have taken a leap in the direction of pursuing something creative, but that wasn’t exactly what sparked the idea of Swanky + Bold. At this point, I knew I wanted to explore my creative side, but it was also important to me that it served a purpose, and that’s the piece I was unsure about. 

When I moved to Copenhagen, I pursued a degree in innovation and entrepreneurship. This new study peaked my curiosity in multiple ways, and the interaction between innovation and entrepreneurship with my undergrad studies in event planning and graphic communications is what kept me up at night. And this is how I knew I needed to design a creative outlet that could encourage and inspire

Doors

Living in Europe has made my obsession for old doors explode. I love the juxtaposition between the colors of the door and the building and the stories that each door tells.

Swanky + Bold started with a purpose in mind; to encourage others to live a colorful + creative life, to spread kindness + to provide women with the tools they needed to turn their dreams into a reality. S+B was born in 2016 as a stationery brand that created artisanal products that were not only colorful + expressive but also had a meaningful purpose. These products were designed for the modern woman to ensure she was always organized + prepared for any celebration, in a stylish manner. (You can read more about our transition here) These past few months, Swanky + Bold got a complete makeover. Now it’s more inspiring than ever. While the new site has moved beyond our stationery products, the brands original vision and values remain the same. 

The name Swanky + Bold is symbolic of a lifestyle that encompasses being fashionable, daring, + strong. I am here to inform, entertain, and inspire action through the content + experiences that I share. Every piece of content that you’ll find on the site, is packed with passion and enthusiasm, complete with tips + tools. 

You can expect me to share what inspires me weekly, stories of fashion, lifestyle, + travel, + free resources to empower women to feel like they can do more, be, more + become more. After all, the legendary Iris Apfel did say “more is more and less is a bore.”
