Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Lily and I’m a busy mom of two boys. I’ve enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom and I’m so humbled that I had the opportunity to watch my kids grow and will always treasure the special bond I have with them. I enjoy singing karaoke, listening to classical music when I’m working and dancing to my heart’s content whenever I hear techno. I love making things from scratch – whether it being a simple card, a delicious meal or a beautiful piece of jewelry since I feel this is another opportunity to send love and positive vibes to the special recipients.
What exactly is Lily Daily Boutique?
Lily Daily Boutique is an online handmade jewelry boutique, selling minimal, effortless jewels for the busy women on the go. The idea behind it is that women are so busy looking after others and tasked with many responsibilities that they often neglect themselves. Each piece of Lily Daily Boutique jewelry is designed to effortlessly add a splash of style to the busy women and help them look stylish, instantly put together and feel good about themselves.
What inspired you to start Lily Daily Boutique?
I’ve always wanted to have a dream job where I can do something that I’m passionate about yet meaningful and make a difference in other people’s lives. I love making jewelry and have always wanted to start my own non-profit organization because I wanted to make sure 100% of the funds I donated directly help children in need. So instead of returning to the corporate world when my boys got older, Lily Daily Boutique was born.
How did you come up with the name?
I had a lifestyle blog named Lily Daily which was meant to be a daily blog…. Now, my jewelry can be worn and enjoyed while helping others, everyday!
Every purchase helps homeless children, can you tell us about that?
10% of all purchases and 100% of the proceeds from the “Sugar Plum Treats” line go directly towards local organizations that help homeless kids. Instead of donating all that in cash, I use that money to buy items that are on the kid’s wish list, this ensures that 100% of the donation goes directly to the children in need.
Is there a favorite product?
Oh, that’s a hard one! I put a lot of thought into each piece so it is so hard to choose. Let’s see. I love my recent fun and meaningful wish bracelet line. I adore this eye catching crystal tassel necklace which comes in various colours and I love wearing this edgy chic necklace, it is so simple yet has a feminine and sensual feel to it.
What is your favorite part about running Lily Daily Boutique?
Creating new designs that I’m happy and proud of and seeing big smiles and twinkles in someone’s eyes as she tries on my jewelry, it’s a great feeling to know that I’ve made a woman feel good about herself.
What is your least favorite part about running Lily Daily Boutique?
The administrative and accounting aspects but knowing that I’m making a difference in someone’s life makes it all worthwhile.
How do you spread the word about your company?
