AAPI Month



Share the love

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month is such an important month to acknowledge and celebrate, as this community is an integral part of not only our TTL family, but our national community. The month is to celebrate the culture and history of Asian and Pacific Islanders, as they have contributed so much to our society.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month AAPI

In recent years, such as the beginning of the pandemic, xenophobia and aggressive acts towards the AAPI community has tried to outshine their experience. With this in mind, this month serves as a reminder to acknowledge, uplift, and provide a spotlight on these issues, as well as offer a platform to support the AAPI community and businesses. As a mother of children who are a part of the AAPI community, it is imperative that I show my solidarity and some love for the community. For the next week I want to share some of my favorite AAPI content creators here on TTL, as well as some AAPI businesses that I love!

Chriselle Lim | Shop Phlur | @chrisellelim

Chriselle is not only an industry veteran, but is also one of the most witty gals around and a certified badass! As a fellow mom of two daughters, I cannot help but see her as a kindred soul! I find her authenticity to not only be attractive, but something I find myself having a deep connection with. From her funny “rich mom” skits to her day-in-the-life vlogs, Chriselle has become a modern “Renaissance Woman”! And she’s a bad ass boss babe too, with her very own fragrance line, Phlur and co-founder of Bumo Parent, an on-demand children center . Be sure to check her out babes!

Wendy | @wendyskin 

Wendy is so refreshing, authentic & so freakin’ cute. She has a way of sharing that just pulls me in and captivates me. She’s a natural on camera and I always feel like I’m in the room with her when she’s sharing skincare. Even though she’s so much younger than me, I find her so /relatable. So proud to be a fellow #SephoraSquad member with her!

Christina | @Barefacefemme

Christina is not only a beautiful young lady, but is genuine in her approach to discussing skin. Through her instagram she has created a safespace for those who struggle with PCOS, acne, and mental health. Her realness with her journey is so beautiful, as she is opening up these important discussions with the world, allowing for not only herself, but others to begin to embrace their skin types. Her fearlessness makes the mommy side of me so proud!

Maytinee Visuddhidham | @star.powerr

I saved the best for last babes. My very own bb!! Having just wrapped up a fashion design program, May has begun her journey towards her newfound brand Already Vintage. As she embarks towards her goals and aspirations, she continues to be a driving force behind her own dreams and TTL. Being May’s mom has been one of my greatest accomplishments, and now seeing her flourish as her own woman has become one of my greatest joys. May’s visual ability to conceptualize a project and bring it to life from its inception to its completion is truly awe-inspiring. With her drive, I’m excited to see her employ all her beautiful talents for her future endeavors!
