Why I Love Living in Troy Michigan #ZipCodePride

Why I Love Living in Troy Michigan #ZipCodePride

As you all know from reading my About Me page, I grew up in the north east of China, but after moving to Michigan to be with my late husband, I fell in love with the place. I am now settled in Detroit’s northern suburbs in the beautiful city of Troy where I am living life to the fullest as a teacher by day and a petite fashion blogger by night. As part of the #ZipcodePride campaign from Addressy, who provide an address verification service, I want to talk to you about some of the most awesome things about my home and why I love living in the heart of northern Detroit. If you live in this fabulous corner of the world too, then you’ll probably recognize a few of the places I’m about to mention, but if you haven’t made it here yet, make sure you add these things to your to-do and to-see lists for when you do.

The fabulous fashion scene

As a child, I had short hair and spent most of my time in my older brother’s hand-me-downs. Fashion was most definitely not at the forefront of my mind, but since moving by Detroit, the fashionista in me has come to life. Troy is one of the most cosmopolitan shopping destinations in the state of MI so it comes as no surprise that me and my fellow fashion bloggers love it here.

The Somerset Collection Mall here in Troy is actually one of the most profitable malls in the United States, with some of my favorite department stores, such as Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. It is only about a 10 minute drive from where I live. 😉

The buzzing music culture

Detroit was once home to some of the most incredible bands and singers in the world and this musical culture is still very much alive today. The White Stripes, Iggy Pop, Aretha Franklin and Eminem are just some of the big names who have shared the same sidewalks as me, which is pretty cool, right?

The famous Motown Records was launched here in the late 1950’s and went on to produce some of the most celebrated soul and pop albums of all time. Metro Detroit is also the birthplace of the wonderful Detroit Symphony Orchestra so, as you can tell, there’s a real diversity about Michigan’s music scene and all the people in it, and I love it.

There’s always something to do

One of the greatest things about living in Troy is that it’s virtually impossible to be bored. There is always a park to stroll round, a brand new shop to treat yourself, or a coffee shop to catch up on emails. You name it, Troy has it. One day you can be watching a basketball game at the park or shooting some blog photos in the beautiful woodland, while the next day you could be hopping in a cab from one bar to the next painting the town red.

If you have been following me for a while, you probably know that I am the ambassador of our very own Michigan bespoke luxury brand Beau Satchelle. I have shared several reviews about their handmade high quality and high end leather bags. You can read here and here about two more bags that I got from them. You can buy them online now at https://www.beausatchelle.com/shop/. 🙂

I love everything that is personalized or custom made. The bottom line is we are all unique and you can’t find any two of us who are exactly the same. So why should we all choose the same style or looks when it comes to handbags? Of course we shouldn’t. Beau Satchelle is here for everyone who is looking to add more personality to their handbag collections. Just like Beau Satchelle mission states, they provide “Bespoke Luxury For The Discerning Individual”

I always wanted a hat box style bag so I turned to Ty Michael, Luxury Designer/Leather Artisan at Beau Satchelle. After many emails back and forth we settled on this unique tiger bag. Do you know why there is a tiger on the front? Anyone?

Yes, tigers are cool. But that is not the reason. Try again! Fine, here is the answer. Because I am a tiger. 😉 The tiger is my Chinese zodiac.

Ty worked on this bag for many, many hours and he tried very hard to make sure I got it before my Paris trip. He said he wanted this tiger a little bit mean so it can protect me when I was traveling alone. 😉 You know, when you fall in love with a brand, it is often not just because of the products, it is often because the deep connection with the people behind it. Beau Satchelle was there for me the whole time while my late husband was sick, going through treatment, and then when he passed away. Now they are here to support me getting back on my feet.

Ok, let’s get back to my cool bag. 😉 One thing I know for sure about the handbags from Beau Satchelle is they are all carefully hand made using the highest quality Italian leather goods. This tiger bag is no exception.

Other than the high end quality, I can’t believe how roomy this bag is. When I was traveling, I put my big iPad, iPhone 7+, phone charger, extra phone charging station, a book, a bottle of water, wallet, passport, a small bag with all my medicine and snacks, a middle size bag for all my makeup touch up things, a scarf, and a Neck Support Travel Pillow.

I have read so many stories of people talking about the pickpockets in Paris. To be honest with you, I haven’t seen any nor did I encounter any of them. My tiger bag may have scared all of them away. 😉 I have to say, with this bag, it would be super difficult for someone to try to open it without gaining my attention. So, if you are going to a place well known for pickpockets, then this bag is a very good choice.
