Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! Although I’m all the way in NYC for Fashion Week, my heart is back in Los Angeles with my two Valentines: Chloe and Allen. I’m so excited to have teamed up with Tory Burch for the launch of her new fragrance called Love Relentlessly, which was inspired by a beautiful love letter her dad wrote to her mother. Their love story really captivated me and the scent is just heavenly.
Working on this post, I began to think of what “loving relentlessly” means to me and I couldn’t help but bring myself back to Allen & my wedding day when we said our vows. “Through thick and the thin. For better or for worse. I will always love you.” As cheesy and cliché as that might sound, it’s true. Allen and I have been married for 4.5 years now and I think I can say I’m now at a place in my marriage where I truly know what it means to love unconditionally… to love relentlessly. Bringing a baby into this world was the biggest blessing in our life but it was also one of the biggest challenges. From my travel schedule to his work schedule, to our baby’s schedule, to finances, to “US” time, it was hard to balance everything at first. The dynamic changed quite a bit and quite fast, but today we are stronger than ever because we are relentless. We didn’t let anything stop us from loving each other and we just found a way to make it work.
With that said, to me “Loving Relentlessly” is not about a perfect love story it’s about an unconditional, undying, and selfless LOVE that continues through thick and the thin and for better or for worse.
Thank you, Tory Burch, for including me in this lovely campaign that literally pulled on my heart strings and for allowing me to share what Love Relentlessly means to me. Beyond the story behind this perfume, the scent is just divine. It has notes of rose, amber, pink pepper and patchouli and is designed to capture the feeling of falling in love!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Hope your day is filled with love, but more importantly, I hope you can fill someone else’s day with LOVE too!
