I’m a serial entrepreneur and have always been passionate about small businesses and entrepreneurship! I started my first company when I was 15, called Jezie Jewelry. (I wrote a post about how I started Jezie Jewelry here.) I’ve mentioned this briefly in a few blog posts but I recently started a new company with my friend Dave. We’ve known each other for more than ten years, since childhood! Read more to learn about my newest business venture: View Post
Last month, I tried a new thing where I set monthly personal, wellness, business + blog goals. I did a couple month/season focused bucket lists in the past but wanted to have something more actionable in order to hold myself accountable.
Unfortunately….I have to say that I did not do too well on my August goals, haha. I’ve realized that it’s not enough to just make the goals. I have to set aside time to actually accomplish them. Read more for my September goals and my lessons learned: View Post
I just reached 20k followers on Instagram a few days ago, which is a big milestone for me! I wanted to say a quick thank you and take a minute to introduce myself. Here are a few things you may or may not know about me: View Post

July was all about adjusting and settling in. I just graduated, moved into my new apartment and started my first adult job. There’s been a lot of change! For me, August is all about action. Read more for my goals: View Post
It wasn’t until sophomore year of college that I really became interested in the beauty industry. I was interning at Bloglovin’ as a blogger relationship associate so I started reading a lot of beauty blogs and getting more into products. During that time I was also taking my first marketing class in college, Intro to Marketing, with Professor Bonezzi. During the class, we had guest speakers who were in various marketing roles. One of the guest speakers was Lillian Tung, who shared her experiences doing marketing for the beauty industry. Hearing her talk about what her role was like was what first peaked my interest in working in the beauty industry and doing marketing as a career.
I go to a business school where there is a lot of pressure to do finance but hearing about what it was like to do marketing in the beauty industry solidified my choice to pursue a career in marketing. I loved that it felt very entrepreneurial and required a mix of creative and quantitative skills. I owe a lot to Lillian Tung for speaking to my Intro to Marketing class because it led me to where I am today and played a huge role in helping me figure out what I want to do with my life – work in beauty marketing and someday hopefully start my own beauty company.
Lillian Tung left L’Oreal to co-found a beauty company called Fur, a business with rather unconventional products. Fur is the first brand to embrace the conversation around daily pubic hair care. It is the first line of products that cares for pubic hair and skin. I had the opportunity to interview Lillian and test out the products. Read more for the interview! View Post
