Which two BIA businesses, outside your own, do you love and why?
I personally love trying new foods and desserts, Rangolis and Lokma have to be some of the top businesses on my list. Family owned, local and very present in our community!
What else would you like us to know? (Tell us a little more about yourself or business. What made you decide on your industry? Is there a personal story you’d like to share? What would you tell us so we get to know the face(s) behind the business a little better.)
After working for almost a decade in family businesses, I realized I had other interests but still loved the idea of expanding my parents very own café/restaurant. I found a passion for beauty at a young age. Always doing my own nails and makeup and learning from experts around the world just from YouTube! When I began my own eyelash extension business in 2019 I knew there were so many more services I wanted to add. As I only preform services I truly enjoy, I now have 8 other technicians working by my side doing what they love and we are now able to offer a huge variety of services to our community! In October 2020 during the pandemic, an opportunity became available for me to open an establishment incorporating the two things I know most about in life, beauty and coffee. After a couple more lockdowns I realized Orleans was missing one more thing, a locally owned bubble tea bar! Our coffee & bubble tea bar is open to the public even if you are not coming in for beauty services. My team and I can’t wait to meet every new customer that comes through our door.
