Female Owned Businesses

Female Owned Businesses part 2 Blog cover photo

In case you missed it, today is International Women’s Day and I thought what better way to celebrate than to feature another few of my favorite female owned businesses?! I’ve been so lucky to cross paths with some of the most amazing, beautiful, smart women and still am in awe by how strong, creative, and hardworking we are as females. We are capable of so much and so here are some amazing businesses built by incredible women who have embodied what it means to be a BOSS BABE!

This has got to be one of my all time favorite female owned businesses and you can probably see why. If you’re looking for country/farmhouse style pieces to put in your kitchen, living room, dining room and more, you NEED to check her out! Every product is carefully hand picked by Dana-Lynne and she even chooses some pieces created by women! Some of the products available include vintage-style furniture, kitchen utensils, aprons, and even some jewelry. I can’t get enough of this lady and her eye for detail. Not only is she gorgeous on the outside, she’s so stunning on the inside and has a heart of GOLD! With her recent move to Tennessee, Dana has had to put some things on hold but I know she’s going to absolutely flourish out there! I can’t wait to see what her business has in store for her! 

2. Savannah Sevens by Ryley Wimer

Ryley Wimer has created such an amazing Western-Chic boutique and boy does it just have a special place in my heart! Savannah Sevens has always been so key and on point in every aspect of business. Ryley always makes sure to pay such close attention to every detail that goes into her business. These are truly skills of a true BOSS babe. Her branding is just so unique and on point; it fits her and I love it. She has truly been such a frontrunner in my eyes with how she’s designed her site and branding. I love that she not only offers Western-style clothing but boots, shoes, accessories, and more to add that unique flair to your outfit daily. Ryley has got it goin on so check her out below!

This last fall, I was able to do a little collaboration with Böhme, an incredible female owned business with such a unique backstory to its founding! Created by sisters Vivian & Fernanda, Böhme has become one of the most popular boutiques both online in the U.S. and across their storefronts throughout the MidWest. The boutique carries boho-chic styles of clothing, from dresses, jackets, and skirts to shoes, jewelry, and other accessories. Emigrating from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to the U.S. the two sisters were taught early on the value of hard work. They have since built one of the most successful female owned businesses in Utah. Böhme has been featured in Forbes, Cosmopolitan Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and more. Not only are they successful, Vivian & Fernanda have made it a point to give back to local women’s shelters, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, orphanages in Brazil, and so many others. These boss babes are amazing so be sure to check out their Instagram below!

4. BOX Babe by Bre

Next up is one of the most creative female owned businesses I’ve come across yet and the idea behind it just melts my heart! If you’ve ever needed a custom gift box made for a family member/friend for a special occasion but you don’t have a crafty hand, Bre is your girl! Her business, BOX Babe, is meant to bring back thoughtfulness into gift-giving. Unlike monthly subscription boxes that lack a certain flair for personal touch, Bre carefully curates each gift box while paying special attention to detail. This is something I feel so many gifts these days are missing. BOX Babe said it best, “We’ve got your back…through gifts and personal gestures that you haven’t thought of, don’t know how or where to find, lack the time to send, or are unsure how to give it that extra special touch!” If that’s you, GO check out her business linked below! BOX Babe is amazing and its idea is unique, genuine, and truly reflects the amazing character of Bre, the gorgeous babe behind it all!

If you know me, you know I’m a country girl at heart and you should also recognize this incredible business, owned by Jane Kasper. Rural Haze is a traveling boutique that began as a custom-order Etsy Shop but has now become an incredible shop providing chic, comfortable, and unique Western-style clothing and accessories. Some of my favorite pairs of jeans that I constantly show my followers are from Jane’s boutique and I just can’t get enough of her! She has the best personality in all the land and so incredibly talented from creaming butter to making cheese to just plain making you laugh – she melts my heart! Jane most definitely knows more than a thing or two about business so check her out below for some awesome pieces you never knew you needed!

The wait is finally over and it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for – JOCE by Design has launched! It been a long time coming with so much research as well as time put in. I’m so happy to say that the dream is finally happening! The new online boutique opened officially on Monday February 15th and boy oh boy was it a BUSY day! The support from my viewers, friends, family, and incredible customers has been amazing and so exciting.

For so long now, I have been a huge supporter of small business and the importance of shopping small.  If you know me, you know I constantly share links from awesome small businesses that I personally love. I love clothes and getting dressed up, but one frustration I noticed many have is putting together outfits! It hit me: people need staple pieces that can be paired in different ways. I wanted to provide those pieces for you to be able to wear  again and again multiple ways – true KEY pieces that allow you to feel beautiful and confident wherever you may be in life! In the recent new release, there are so many different pieces that range from casual to dressy. You’ll find that you can either dress pieces up or down depending on the outfit you put together. 

We've Done the Research for You!

One of my main focuses with creating this boutique is helping women of all shapes, sizes, skin tones, etc. love themselves always! There are so many clothing lines and businesses that don’t carry certain pieces of clothing in plus sizes and I’ve heard from so many incredible girls how disappointing this can be. After doing hours of research and hunting, I chose clothing that was offered in a variety of sizes for all my gorgeous babes! 

Every woman deserves to feel beautiful daily, find key pieces of clothing easily, and love themselves truly. That’s exactly what my new shop aims to do. We’ve found pieces that are high quality, lasting, simple, but gorgeous and worth it!

I want women to feel their best while utilizing what they have and while I may carry the basics now for you, I still love that I can uplift other small businesses by encouraging my shoppers to pair their outfits with pieces others carry! For example, easily dressing up a top from my shop with a cute necklace or rings from *Goldie Lew, *Abby Alley, and/or *Amanda Deer or pairing a sweater with some cute jeans from Rural Haze. You CAN create that perfect outfit girl, I believe in you and now with JOCE by Design, the possibilities are truly endless!

1. Rocketbook

The Rocketbook has been one of the coolest finds of mine yet! You can choose from multiple different colors and there are 42 reusable pages to write on with the included Frixion pen. Also, it includes 1 microfiber cloth to clean the pages. All you need to do is add water and wipe! Did I mention this is so smart? It can connect to multiple platforms, such as Google drive, OneNote, Dropbox, iCloud, email, and more! This has been so awesome to use whenever and wherever I go to quickly jot down ideas that come to me and save them to my Google drive within minutes. I truly recommend it for all, from business owners to students and everyone in between!

Calendars are so important for staying organized and getting things done! This one in particular is one of my personal favorites as it has so much to offer. You can plan your week, your month, and even set yourself goals. Keep in mind that if you’re a working mom, this planner also includes an academic calendar so you stay in the loop with your kids and your business! I like to go even further and use color coding tabs to keep my planner as clean and put together as possible!

My job requires me to interact with my followers a lot, whether that’s by going live on social media or recording myself for my viewers to watch later. This wall mount is so sturdy and awesome for getting the perfect set up to record, go live, or find that awesome lighting near a window! The Pro MagicMount is adjustable and can be set up in the car, household surfaces, etc. If you need your hands free while getting the job done, this mount is perfect for you!

Lighting is so important for that perfect selfie, headshots, makeup application, you name it! Getting the perfect lighting is key for my business so I can show customers exactly what I see and it’s important for many of you joining our Seint family! This ring light is a must-have whether you’re working on your business or trying to get that perfect lighting to apply you makeup. It’s easy to use, quick to set up, and great to take on the go whenever needed!

5. Double-sided Backdrop

You may not think a background is very important, but it can truly make all the difference in the world! Having a clean background looks more professional and provides less distraction so your viewers can see you clearly. This backdrop is so awesome, in fact I’ve gifted it to some of my awesome girls I work with because it’s THAT good! It includes a support stand and is black on one side, white on the other. It’s so easy to pack up/set up and I recommend it for anyone wanting that clean finish to their photos/videos!
