OUR MASCOT, LILY
Working 9-5 in a corporate job, doing tasks I was mildly interested in, and commuting an hour and a half to and from work left me exhausted at the end of the day. I was trying to fit into a mold that I thought I was supposed to fit into. After continually being asked "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" in a professional setting, and never being able to give a true answer, I realized I needed to get out of the corporate mold and do something I'm passionate about. And that is exactly what I decided to do.
Launched in July 2017, I decided to bet on myself. I took my dream of owning an online boutique (inspired and named after my dog, Lily) and turned it into reality. I wasn't just fitting a mold, I created something that was completely mine. And I finally had a true answer to "where do you see yourself in 5 years?"
