SHOWS YOU SHOULD WATCH AS A ENTREPRENEUR IN 2017: #GIRLBOSSONNETFLIX

Every since reading the #GIRLBOSS book by Sophia Amoruso, Founder of Nasty Gal I ultimately became inspired because I have gone through similar trials and errors during my journey running my online boutique FXSHNJUNKESTORE , whereas in Sophia’s case she was running an eBay store which is now one the most successful fashion companies .


When news got out that there was going to be an official show based off the book I couldn’t wait ! . On April 21st 2017 , the television show Girlboss launched and it is so bomb that I’m already waiting on Season 2 !


What are you thoughts on show so far ? Comment below!

*AN INSIDE LOOK* HONEY KISSED COSMETICS FT OWNER NIKUALE WILLIAMS *FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT*

Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight features a 20 year old Cincinnati #BOSSBABE Nikuale Williams .  Before starting her online business she attended University of Kentucky for a year and until her cosmetics line Honey Kissed became successful. We linked up with Nikuale to talk how she started her line and her favorite makeup brands , etc
I’ve always known that I was destined for more than normalcy. Even as a kid, I wanted to be “famous” and knew eventually people would know my name, now look at me! – Nikuale
image_1eb99316-187d-4690-9662-6e6a134d5fb6_grande
Dasia: What motivated you to start your own business ?
 

Nikuale: It was near the end of my freshman year of college and I didn’t have the $8k needed to start my next semester, so I needed to think of something to do to earn my way back into school. I landed on handmade cosmetics because I was a HUGE makeup junkie and I spend so much buying makeup but I had the ability to make my own.


Dasia: How did you come up with the name Honey Kissed Cosmetics ?
 

Nikuale: I was inspired by a makeup artist online, Ociera, her artistry was named “Fresh Face Honey” and I don’t know why – it just came to me. I was actually stuck between “Honey Kissed” and “Beauty Marked” on account of my very unique beauty marks/moles on my own skin – I ran a poll on twitter and Honey Kissed won. 

 

 

Dasia: What makes Honey Kissed Cosmetics different from any other cosmetics line?

  

Nikuale: Honey Kissed was created by a black woman for predominantly women of color. Due to being extremely under represented, we sometimes lack the motivation to even try because it seems that we aren’t even noticed. I really make sure that although my products can work for any skin tone, they can definitely work for even the darkest of skin. 

Dasia: How long has it been since you been in business ?
 

Nikuale: Surprisingly we only launched last June. June 10, 2016.


Dasia: Aside from owning a business, what are some of the obstacles you’ve faced since launching Honey Kissed ?
 

Nikuale: I’ve struggled with the decision of going back to school because of course I want to have that “Plan B” just in case – but I just feel like a plan b is such a cop out. It’s like you make a second plan when you don’t have complete faith in your first one and I do. I know that this is long term. But my family really wants me to make sure I have something to fall back on.


 Dasia: What is your top selling products that customers seem to like ?
 
 Nikuale: Currently, everyone is OBSESSED with our holographic lipgloss 6 inch heels. It’s definitely a staple and sells out within minutes with every restock.

 

  ( above: Holographic 6 inch heels lipgloss )
Dasia: Is everything handmade ? How long it does usually take to create one item if so ?
 

Nikuale: Everything is handmade – but I usually make things in bulk. One item could take up to an hour for a bulk batch, but I usually have 10 hour work days of just creating bulk batches so I can get it all done quickly.


 
Dasia: Outside of shipping orders, etc. what are some things you like to do for fun ?
 

Nikuale: I love traveling with my boyfriend. We also do it without spending a ton of money and not a ton of planning. We just buy a bus ticket and stay in a different city for the sake of exploring.


Dasia: What are two fun facts about you that nobody knows?
 

Nikuale:

1. I have an addiction to online shopping – especially Amazon Prime.

2. I’m super crafty. Like if I wasn’t selling Cosmetics I’d probably still be selling SOMETHING.

Dasia: Any favorite makeup brands other than Honey Kissed ?
 

Nikuale: I personally adore Bahi Cosmetics, partially because the owner and I are close friends but also because the skincare is incredible.

 
Dasia: Yesss we love Bahi Cosmetics ! Check out our interview with the owner here .
 
Dasia: Favorite places to shop ?
 

Nikuale: Amazon Prime, F21, Fashion Nova, Aldo


Dasia: Who are some of your favorite makeup artists ?
 
image_d8f57595-10ee-47ee-94de-45754123a598_grande

 

Nikuale: I love @TheeOnlyOciera & @_tiairraa on twitter. They’re both absolutely incredible.


Dasia: Have you ever heard of Fxshnjunke before ? If not, what are your thoughts ?
 

Nikuale: I haven’t before you guys reached out but I love your platform! You all definitely deserve a large audience.  

 Dasia: What can new and returning customers expect from Honey Kissed in 2017 ?
 

Nikuale: Better. Better everything. We aren’t anything if we aren’t progressing.


Dasia: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ?
 
Nikuale: I pray that my success continues and I’m finally the person I knew I would end up. Gracious and humble with the ability to give back to the world. Also living in a penthouse cause duh. Lol!
 
 
Dasia: DON’T WE ALL LOL !

Dasia: What do you like about fashion ?:

Dasia: How long have you been in business ?

Amanda: Slay by A Boutique has been in business for almost 1 year. June is the mark. It wouldn’t be where it is now if it wasn’t for the support. I built my brand with hoping that it will one day be in the position where I can reach out and speak to women all over the world through clothing. And yes, it may sound silly, but I want all women to feel beautiful in whatever they wear.

As women, we shouldn’t feel limited to what society tells us as far as what we should or shouldn’t wear. As a sister, daughter and aunt myself, I want to be able to set an example for the ladies who feels as though they don’t have enough confidence. With my brand, I hope to empower women of every race, color and body type to embrace their inner goddess and love their body!

Dasia: Do you design everything for the boutique ?

Amanda: No. Some items are purchased wholesale and other items are designed by me.

Dasia: What are some of the obstacles you’ve faced since being in business and how did you overcome it ?

Amanda: Some obstacles that I’ve faced since being in business is honestly finding models to work with that represent my brand and what it stands for. Besides channeling your inner Carrie Bradshaw, Slay by A Boutique was built as a women empowerment company. It was so difficult to find someone who not only loved what we stand for but lived by it. I overcame this obstacle by handpicking models myself instead of my team and having one-on-one talks with them to understand who they are and what they believe.

This year, for me personally, my goals are to work harder and smarter, to expand my brand not only for men but for couples as well. I hope to sign an upcoming brand to my company and collaborate, collaborate, collaborate!! Lol Slay is also working towards a store front in the big apple! but for now we’ll continue doing pop up shop events.
 

Dasia: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years .?

Amanda: The most monumental thing in life to me is being an entrepreneur. In 5 years, I plan to have a storefront for Slay by A Boutique. As the business woman I am, I plan to own many different companies and branch out into motivational speaking and continue building my franchise.

Our girl Jasmin Wooden (@jwoodstylez) have been in the game for quite sometime and have experienced so many positions of the fashion world until she eventually used all that knowledge to create her own brand which is 7 slayz Boutique.

 (Model: @stylistbyair )
Dasia: What inspired you to start an online business ?
 
Jasmin: Well I have loved fashion my entire life! I’ve worked corporate from Forever 21, to Net-A-Porter, to Century 21 e-commerce , to now Snap+Style(personal styling app) and Corporate for Chanel . All varying from Visual Merchandising, Customer Care, Personal Shopping, Wardrobe Styling and Brand Ambassador. I kept thinking to myself ” I could have my own boutique” I know what women like, I know customer service, I know how to style – this can happen. My boyfriend was the one who really pushed me though. I kept talking to him about it, and he told me “I dont want to hear about it, just do it” a week later I had my L.L.C and 3 months after that a finalized website with a lot of beautiful products.

 

Dasia: What do you like about fashion ?

Jasmin: Everything! Live eat breathe fashion
