Follow your <3

Follow your heart and happiness will follow you. I believe listening to yourself is one of the most important things you can do. Yes, friends and family are always out for your best interest but only you and you alone can decide which path to follow. Living a life planned by anyone other than yourself is a road to boredom and disappointment.

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
― C. JoyBell C.

Make your mark

Opening a business is not easy. It takes months of planning, meetings, and spending. Anyone will tell you it’s hard and “I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into.” What most people don’t realize or see is the ease of living your passion. I believe that good will come to those who work hard, enjoy every minute, and share their knowledge with the world. There will be problems I’m sure, but how boring would life be if everything was so perfect all the time. You live and you learn. Those who are not learning from their mistakes are obviously sleep walking through life.

St. Louis is now the official home of Thirteenth and Washington, a beauty-fashion- wellness co op. My dream was to create an inspiring environment for professionals in the creative industry to live their dreams of running their own business. I wanted to work with people who had the same entrepreneurial passion!

It’s almost insane to think that these amazing business or should I say Fashion icons are all under one roof! We are the total package equipped to create celebrities, business moguls, and inspire hip trendsetters…
