Travel & Trends: The Adventure Begins…

They say that traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. Well, this is my story.

After years of toiling away running operations for large international law firms, I decided to take a chance and start doing something that I LOVE.  The start of Butterfly & Grace marks the beginning of a new journey in my life.  I’ve been blessed to have spent most of my adult life living internationally and travelling all over the globe.  If you look at my travel map attached to this post, the green dots are where I’ve lived and the red dots are where I’ve traveled.  I thought about putting yellow dots on where I want to go, but then I realized the entire map would be a sea of yellow!  Do you have questions or are curious about any of the places on my map?  Ask me in the comments section and I will answer as best I can.

Combining my love of trends and travel, Butterfly & Grace features an eclectic line of handmade handbags, dazzling jewelry, and an assortment of accessories that I’ve selected from the farthest reaches of the globe.

Our most popular handbags, “Moroccan Magic”, are made from the remnants of Indian wedding sarees.   Every one-of-a-kind creation has its own story to tell; its own journey that started as several moments and memories, skillfully hand-stitched together and adorned with shiny sequins before making its way to you…where a new adventure begins. Where it becomes a part of the moments that make up your life. Whether it’s a casual trip to the market, lunch with friends, or travelling around the world.  We thank you for letting us be a part of that; for making your adventure our adventure.

In return, here, we give you — the mothers, the daughters, the sisters, the storytellers – a space to make statements. Not just about style, but about life.

There will be tips. There will be tales. There will be opinions. Oh, and purses. Lots, and lots of purses.

“With age comes wisdom. With travel, comes understanding.”

Every step so far has been an adventure, and I look forward to each new twist, turn and bump in the road ahead.

With love,
