For those of you who don't know us, we wanted to introduce ourselves. Since I'm the older, wiser, more popular sister, I'll start.
I was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana and have been living in Houston, Texas for about 18 years after a stint in Baton Rouge and Austin. My boyfriend and I have a house in the Heights with our 8 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback...who is currently snoring on the couch next to me. In my spare time I love traveling, eating, cooking, drinking wine, and spending time with my family and friends. That's in no particular order but wine seems to play a role in all of those.
Growing up, our mom was constantly redecorating/redesigning our house, my dad's office, other people's houses, stores we'd walk into, anything she could! One of our weekend outings was to walk around houses that were under construction (breaking and entering, anyone??). I always enjoyed it and know that her influence has a made a huge impact in my daily life both as a wonderful mom but also because she has such impeccable style. My childhood aspirations of becoming a Fashion Designer were put on standby when I realized that I didn't want to live in New York so I settled on a degree in Visual Merchandising and Consumer Science. That way I was able to use my eye for fashion and design and put it to a viable career without having to move north. I don't do cold weather.
I've been working in the beauty industry for over 18 years. For the past 15 years, I've been the Manager of cutLoose as well as Education Coordinator for Bumble & bumble for the past 5. Both of these venues have given me the ability to express myself creatively. I've worked on various events and projects both inside the salon and out which included interior styling, wardrobe styling and design.
After much talk, over wine of course, Summer and I decided the next step was for us to combine our talents and passion and branch off onto something that we can call our own.
Here's to the future!
