I have always loved this quote by Tori Amos – “I know I’m an acquired taste, I’m anchovies, and not everyone likes those hairy little things, if I was potato chips, I could go more places”. There has always been a dream in my heart to run my own business – I don’t know whether I thought it would be glamorous or what I was after was freedom. It definitely wasn't logic or facts that drove me to try new things....perhaps just hopes and dreams & listening to my heart & guts and the possibility of living life as i had dreamed. Life lessons are interesting – we crave that sense of belonging – to be part of a pack, however we strive to stand out from the crowd! I have learnt that the greatest challenge we will have in life will be with our selves – with our mindset. We become the labels we create ourselves. Therefore the range is developed for those who value something different and enjoy luxurious textures….and are happy to stand out from the crowd! 1964 is the year of the dragon – the year I was born. A generic number to most, yet as I become more settled in my ‘anchovy’ skin, I am now proud to be building my lifestyle business that I had dreamed of 35 years ago.
