32, female, New York City baby
What’s your sign?
Where do u call home? Where is yr home Way from hm?
NYC, is home. I grew up in St. Louis.
When & Why did u start UNBOUND??
My co-founder Sarah Jayne and I started @Unbondbabes in 2014. At 21, I was diagnosed with stage IIIC colorectal cancer. A friend who is a nurse recommended I buy a vibrator because the cancer treatment was having such a big impact on my body and, by extension, my sex drive. I was really embarrassed to talk about it, and the whole shopping experience stuck with me.
What's one of the biggest hurdles or challenges you've faced being in biz?
We can’t advertise on FB, IG, or Pinterest. Our ads were also pulled by the MTA! Running a business that grows organically is incredibly difficult–it’s super hard to reach new customers.
What product are you most excited about for 2019?
Palma! – She’s a ring that’s also a vibe.
You can wear it out or leave it at home. If you wear it out, it’s your secret to share or not to share. The ring has a bunch of features that make it a beautiful ring and a dynamic vibrator.
We love the unbound insta! Who is responsible for the unbound memes and aesthetic??
Emily runs our Instagram and other social pages! @insideu911
What's it like being in the sexual wellness industry?
It’s been amazing to be a part of the sex tech community here in NYC, especially with all the incredible female / NB / trans founders starting companies. We’re a really close group of founders who support each other as opposed to being occupied with putting each other down. I started the organization called The Women of Sex Tech and you can see all the amazing people I’m talking about at womenofsextech.com
What are your Fave or Top 5 Floss Gloss shades ?
NEW! Bobby Bobby!, Playa del Pink, Wet, Intergalosstic, and Con Limon
What's your beauty routine?
Lawlllll totally depends on how stressful of a week it is. But I always make sure to fool people by putting on red lipstick and being seemingly put together.
Fave beauty product rn (besides FG duh lol)
My sister got me the Blue Tansy Resurfacing Claity Mask by Herbivore for my bday and I was all like “WHATT? $50 FOR A MASK?!?” but I’m kinda obsessed with it now and it helps my acne-prone skin
3 things you cannot live without in LIFE ?
The Office, my inhaler, 70s dad rock
Who is your female muse or major inspo ?
I know it’s cheesy AF but honestly the 8 women I get to work beside every single day. And my mom. And my grandmother Clara Jane who passed away. And Stevie Nicks. And Michelle Obama. I mean, I could go on forever.
Fave show to watch when no ones looking?
I’ve watched the AMC underdog Halt and Catch Fire literally 5 times. If you are starting a company it will give you SO MUCH INSPO and motivation. The first season is kinda a sleeper but HAVE FAITH IT GETS GOOD
What's in your bag ???
Laptop, notebook, sunglasses, makeup bag, and NY Times Sunday paper.
RAPID FIRE ROUND / THIS OR THAT !
Bowie or Freddie?
Britney or Xtina?
Sushi or Pizza ?
Sneakers or heels ?
Desert or Forest?
Like, to hike in? I’m a salty person not a sweet person so I’ll go with forest
Netflix & Chill or Chill & Club Life ?
How does one chill WITH the club life? It depends on the day of the week! But at 32 I’m increasingly of the netflix life vs. club life
Rock or Rap ?
Leather or Denim ?
420 or 24/7 ?
If any of my investors are reading this I want you to know I AM 100% 24/7!!!! Also I’m so proud of you for following this account bc the majority of you are white dewds over 45!!!!!!
