Have you ever been cruising Instagram or Pinterest and found yourself comparing your life to the beautiful people online? Don't lie, you know you do this. It is really easy to forget that what we see online is only part of someone's story, and a real, complicated person exists behind the camera. I'm interested in exploring the reality of life outside of the algorithm, both to remind us that everyone out there is human, but also, to remind us that we aren't alone.

Today I am sitting down with Irene Kwong of Simply Gilded! Her washi (among other things) shop has grown extremely successful in the last couple of years, something that has been amazing to watch. We talk about what it is like for her behind the scenes, how she takes care of herself when things get intense, and so much more!
