Fashion Spotlight: Beads By Bry

BEADS BY BRY

Today’s Spotlight is on the young entrepreneur, Bryanna Workman. Bryanna is a college student who loves her craft! I’ve gotten the chance rock her beads (1st pic) and I love them! I like to wear Alex and Ani bracelets and these pair up perfectly with them. I also had the chance to speak to her about her entrepreneur endeavors. Take a look!

BEHIND THE BUSINESS

How did you get your concept/idea for your business? What made you want to start your own business?

“I came up with the idea for my business because multiple times I would go in retail stores looking for bracelets that weren’t bangles, had colors and were diverse. But, I could never find exactly what I was looking for.”

How would you explain your business to anyone who asked?

“The mission statement for my business is “Arm Candy Always Makes a Statement”.”

What are your goals for your business? Do you plan on expanding your business or keeping it small?

“My goals for my business is for it to eventually expand, and become a perfect place for women and men to shop worldwide. Hopefully one day I can open several boutiques and also have different kiosks in malls through out the United States.”

How long have you been making your own products? How do you come up with your designs?

“So far, I have been making my products since the summer of 2016. In addition to that I come up with my designs by throwing in different patterns and multiple colors and it just always seems to work and match in a weird way. I feel like the different colors and cute charms makes the bracelets and helps them serve their purpose. It attracts attention and catches people’s eyes because it’s not the usual jewelry individuals see.”

Hopefully someone, somewhere, gets inspired to follow their dream like Bryanna is doing, just at the age of 20. No one ever says its easy being an entrepreneur. Whether you’re in the early stages of your startup, just secured funding for your startup or you are ready for product launch, there will always be those times when you ask yourself if this whole entrepreneur thing is worth it. I say, DO IT! What do you have to lose? If you just work on stuff that you like and you’re passionate about, you don’t have to have a master plan with how things will play out.

Pink Paradise Lippie! 

Here’s that new new! N.O.R.E by Norrell Cosmetics! 😍

I’m wearing the shade “Pink Paradise” in the collage above.

Pros: it had me at hello! The color is super cute and it’s highly pigmented! Also goes great with my skine tone. Would suggest this to any women of color. Matte formulas usually last longer than glossy formulas due to the fact that they’re drier. But this new lippie stayed completely creamy. I only used one coat to apply and that one coat was enough! I even ate with it on all day and only had to reapply once.

Cons: it stained my lips a bit once I took it off.

Rate: on a scale from 1 (worst. lipstick. ever.) to 10 (thebomb.com). I’d say an easy 9/10!

I’ve gotten the chance to speak to and collaborate with the CEO of this brand! She says, “N.O.R.E By Norrell is a cosmetic brand that I founded in September this year! I have launched a line of Matte Liquid Lipsticks and my goal is to expand into a full line of cosmetics. N.O.R.E represents diversity and beauty; I make products to fit all skin tones! I want to inspire women of all ages to follow their dreams and goals and to say that it is possible! I started with $500.00 and a dream. I want women to feel not like they need my products but to feel confident wearing them. N.O.R.E is ALL ABOUT BEAUTY!
