Cool Hunting || Chic Household Essentials

I find myself thinking about the differences between my twenties and thirties a lot.  I feel more confident in my thirties than I did in my twenties, which I think is a product of knowing myself better, feeling more secure in my core values, and having just a little more life experience under my belt.  I like to think certain things don’t get to me as much as they would have in my twenties, too.
