The Mother/Daughter Duo

As most of you know, I’ve been working with my mother, Megan Duncanson, for this last year and I could not be happier! We both started a vegan purse line, Livin’ the MAD Life, in January of 2018, and I’ve recently begun to help manage her art company MADART Studios. It has been super exciting, and a lot of new stuff going on!

I wanted to share a little video with some random work chats with myself, Aroon Duncanson and my mom, Megan Duncanson. Enjoy!

Miami Summer Collection

TRAVELLOGO

Livin’ the MAD Life has now launched our newest collection “Miami Summer” and can I just say, I am totally in love with every piece from this collection! Especially the “Melon Jolly” Travel Bag. I can’t wait until my next trip to sport around my matching handbag, travel bag and cosmetic case. If this doesn’t say Miami, I don’t know what does!

And I’m also in love with the lemons, for a more classy look. I’ve been carrying around my “Summer Citrus” Classic Handbag for the last few weeks, and it’s the easiest bag to style and wear with any look!_Aroon0 88_Aroon0 4_Aroon0 214_Aroon0 159Photo Jun 09, 9 50 46 AM_Aroon0 185_Aroon0 58Photo Jun 09, 9 58 47 AM

Livin’ the MAD Life

Exciting news everyone! My mom and I have decided to start our own purse and bag company. But there’s a twist! We wanted to bring our personal values into the brand, Livin’ the MAD Life, and have decided to keep it all vegan, cruelty free, sustainable and focused on empowering designs.

For those of you who do not know, my mother is a world renowned artist, who has sold hundreds of thousands of art pieces and has collectors from around the world. Her art has been featured in popular media streams such as the “O” Oprah Magazine, was the cover image for the Interior Design Magazine, and the featured artist and cover for the Spectrum Art Basel in 2015. She also has her art sold in various retail stores across the country such as, Urban Outfitters, Bed Bath & Beyond and Target. Not only that, but she also has art in major hotels, TV shows, celebrity homes and restaurants around the country.

Okay, so enough bragging about how awesome of an artist my mom is.. But that’s what makes the brand even better! My mother will design each bag and we even have original, hand painted purses!

Pretty cool, huh? Well it’s even cooler, because all of our hand painted bags are on thrifted, upcyled bags! Not sure if you knew this or not, but the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, only behind the oil industry. Purchasing second hand and thrifted fashion items is a great way to keep sustainable and help reduce the fashion industries, and your, carbon footprint. We have thrifted bags from brands such as Chloe, Steve Madden, Samsonite and more! Some of the pieces date back to the 1950’s, making them a vintage masterpiece!

Although our other collections are not on thrifted bags, they will be designed with the colorful workings of my mom, which makes them a collectors piece and not fast fashion.

What’s even more, is we will never sell a bag that is not vegan or cruelty free. The majority of our bags will be made from PU faux leather.

There’s so much more to learn about our products and how they embody empowerment and what a MAD symbol stands for. To read more and check out all of our products visit www.livinthemadlife.com and keep in touch via social media @LivinTheMADLife.

Here are a few of our bags that you can purchase! Side note| I will also be modeling for the brand, so stay tuned for our other fun and exciting campaigns, that are already in the works!

Thanks for your support guys! Can’t wait to see where this takes us next!

Now I feel there might be one question you all have… what does MAD stand for?

It’s simple, its our initials! Megan Aroon Duncanson

The Versace Mansion

The Versace Mansion

Formerly known as the Versace Mansion, The Villa Casa Casuarina is definitely a must see destination, only steps away from Miami Beach. Although the only way to take a peek inside of the mansion is through a dinner reservation at Gianni’s, a booked stay at one of the ten different suites, or some other form of reservation, you should take any opportunity you have to explore the amazing grounds.

Today, I was lucky enough to spend the morning exploring the mansion and snapped some images; from the Azure suite, to the stunning pool made of 24 karat gold! I was definitely itching to jump in the pool with this crazy Florida summer heat, next time I’ll remember to pack a swimsuit.

Original Designed Shirts, Accessories and More

Original Designed Shirts, Accessories and More

So excited to announce that my new Tshit, Accessories and Print shop is now up and running! It took quite a bit of trial and error, and working with multiple tshirt companies to find the perfect fit!

For those of you who do not follow along of my social media may not have known that Megan Duncanson, world wide artist with MADart studios, and myself have been working on this project for the past few months!

i came up with the idea of starting out with 5 different unique designs, all featuring a womens face, a trendy sunglass style, and an unique reflection within the sunglasses. Each design was thought out and tweaked with until we were satisfied with the final results, and we are both so excited with the outcome.

We know trends are always changing, but it seems like the reflective sunglasses trend has stuck around for a while, and we hope it stays that way, because we love it!

We plan to release a new design every so often, so there will always be a design for you.

I would love for you to check out the new shop and leave any feedback you may have. All products are a GREAT DEAL, and you will not find anything like them anywhere else!
