When i first started vb, i remember how excited i was... to create and design. the smiles of women would literally instantly infuse me with so much happiness and content because i knew i was doing something that was more then just selling a product...
it was so difficult for me to transform this into a business for so many reasons. 1- whenever you turn something into a business it does lose a bit of that special person personal touch and 2- i knew that it would sometimes feel less exciting to do because it was my job.
when i first started vb, people used to say to me your designs are amazing just you wait- someone is going to try to mimic you and i used to say no way that’s not possible—- and it happened and to be honest i fell into that trap as well and thank g-d rose up and transformed. why is it that in the accessory world we can’t all support each other but in the fashion world and other worlds i see like businesses supporting and even nurturing each other... i would like to be the one to take that stand and invite all of us to just get along and stop the competitive streak that is silently taking all of us over! let’s build each other up! there is enough room for all of us.
hashem/ g-d put each of us on this planet with a mission and with unique qualities. no two of us are the same 💖 and we can all learn things from each other and grow with one another. this is a lesson i try to manifest and teach my children.
when i first started vb, i had a passion to create.. i had a passion to inspire... i had a passion to motivate... i had a passion to help.. with a need i knew i was not the only one with.
when i first started vb, i knew nothing and i still know nothing but i have learned so much and am so thankful to have this opportunity and have such amazing followers such as you... happy tuesday!
Taking time to soak up and appreciate our lovely planet is so important. the more we see the beauty, the more we will want to protect it. 🌍💚
this was my early walk to work on a day i wasn't feeling too well, but this view made me feel a lot better. it made me realise i was letting my head dictate what i was really feeling, and that actually, i feel fine. .
there is so much power in getting out of our minds, into the present and such liberation in stopping and admiring the beauty in the world around you. #grateful
