OLIVIA SALAZAR DE BREAUX, 41 - OLYBELLA
OWNER + LIP BUTTER CRAFTER EXTRAORDINAIRE
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
I created OlyBella uber-moisturizing, non toxic lip butters because I wanted safe products that my kids and I could use. My inspiration for my flavors come from my Mexican heritage, from foods and drinks I love, and from people who inspire me - like Coco Loco which is inspired by my late sister who LOVED coconut!
YOU MUST READ:
Nina Haro Nelson's blog, Shalom Mama. She is kind of my guru and really inspired me to start making my own non toxic household products for my family. Her bestie Dusti Arab also has an awesome blog called Think Charm that is geared specifically towards female business owners. They both are awesome and I will scream like a little girl if I ever get lucky enough to meet them in person.
I CAN'T STOP EATING:
Oh man, so many choices. I am Mexican and the food of my soul is real, authentic Mexican food that my mama makes. The closest thing to it here in Olympia comes from a taco truck. Seriously. I also love Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Italian, German and Mediterranean cuisine. Told ya, I can't pick just one.
My style is:
Classic. Feminine. Edgy.
