Beauty? Pssh. It's braaaiiiinnnns you want!

It's not every day that you get to meet someone who is a model feminist, a creative powerhouse, a captain of industry, and a trend-setting fashionista. It's even rarer for that person to be a nine year old, yet that's just who Meredith and I had the pleasure of chatting with recently on the podcast!

We were joined this week by Riley Kinnane-Peterson and her dad John. Riley is the Creative Director (and, along with John, co-founder) of Gunner & Lux. Gunner & Lux is a jewelry and apparel brand featuring inspired (and inspiring) designs created jointly by Riley and John. What's more, they're also a co-sponsor of this month's American Herstory giveaway! If you haven't entered yet, don't delay — entries close on August 30th, and the prize pack is awesome!

We chat with Riley & John about how Gunner & Lux started, how Riley balances her work on the business with school and generally being a kid, their creative process, their favorite tunes to listen to while they work, how they resolve disagreements relating to the business, and some of Riley's favorite books & movies. They also weigh in on a recent Question of the Day post!

We'll be back next week with more new designs, another fresh podcast episode, and, if you're one of the cool kids that gets (and reads) our Tuesday emails, a new Boredwalk community spotlight Q&A with a fan just like you! Until then...

Peace, love, and brains,
