What were the biggest challenges you faced when starting out:
Having people take us seriously, I think a lot of my friends and people who didn’t really know me thought I didn’t actually work because my job was different from what they were doing at a 9-5.
Greatest accomplishment so far in your career:
Our collaboration with Target and The Beverly Hills Hotel, they are so different but both such a dream come true. Target allowed SCL to be accessible to SO many people and The Beverly Hills Hotel is my favorite place in the world!

What do you love most about your work:
The people we work with and get to meet. We are so lucky to have an incredible team and the people we collaborate with and support SCL are so amazing.
Best piece of advice for anyone looking to start their own business:
Make sure you really love what you’re doing, don’t just start a business because it seems that's what everyone is doing these days. It’s not as glamorous as it may appear on social media.
First thing you do in the morning:
Check email and Instagram. Respond to all of our DMs from the night before. Get out of bed and ice roll my face (I get very puffy!)
You decompress each day by:
Sitting on the couch with takeout and watching TV. Usually posting Insta stories from @stoneyclover at the same time.
Favorite Stoney Clover Lane item:
Any one of our duffles, I have every one and cannot go anywhere without it! They are perfect for a weekend getaway or to use as a carry-on for a longer trip, it's so lightweight but feels super luxurious. I have high-end duffles and they literally sit in my closet because ours are so much better.
Where does your credit card get the most use:
Postmates, I literally postmate everything, it's the BEST.
Share your biggest guilty pleasure:
Hallmark Christmas movies, I am counting down until October 26th !
What’s next for Stoney Clover Lane:
We have two retail locations opening this year! One is permanent and one is pop up, can’t share any more details yet but they are going to be amazing!
