My name is Christine Hayes. I grew up in New Orleans, LA with my older sister Kimberly and my younger brother James. I attended Tulane University and adore New Orleans although I no longer live there. I am a Corporate America veteran who has worked several years in the Beauty Industry. I have always had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and desired to develop my own body care line since I was a young girl. I always knew I would be in the beauty industry developing my own products. See more about my entrepreneurial dreams at: https://anahob.com/blogs/news/8827997-first-post. I planned to start my own Beauty Line in early 2005, however the events of Hurricane Katrina delayed my dreams and I focused on taking care of my parents as they moved to Atlanta to live near my sister and I. I placed my dreams on hold and decided to move to New York once my parents were settled. I was fortunate enough to work for an amazing Specialty Retailer in the Beauty Industry. I enjoyed 6+ wonderful years with that company but I left in 2013 to move to Tampa, FL with my sister, Kimberly. We headed to Tampa to begin our company. Our vision was to develop a beauty business and eventually a boutique of organic, natural and better for you products. We have researched and developed many products and now we are ready to officially launch our organic coffee scrubs. We both are excited for the opportunity to work with each other. My sister Kim is truly my best friend and I am truly best that we both love beauty as much as we do. We are looking forward to eventually working full time on this business. I am looking forward to developing a complete line of organic and natural great smelling and benefit driven better for you body care.
