If I'm being completely honest, when I started Lucy & Mui 5 years ago, I could never have imagined being where we are today. I started out with a vision of making the world a more beautiful place, and charting the direction of Lucy & Mui, but today, 5 years later, I've realized that it's charted my life in more ways than I can count.
Having had 2 children of my own through the journey of Lucy & Mui, I've learnt to see what we do through their eyes - with a fresh perspective, starting always with kindness, and always being grateful for what we have.
Looking back on 2019, while the list of things that I am thankful for goes on, I've distilled the top 3 that remain close to our heart.
Our Brand Ambassadors
Through Lucy & Mui's Brand Ambassador Programme, I've met a series of incredible individuals that are genuine and authentic, amazing women that I would not have met any other way. Each of them floor me with their love and generosity, their kindness and willingness to go the extra mile for Lucy & Mui and our clients - every little act means the world.
From the hands that penned our designs, to the ones that painstakingly handcrafts each piece, to the hands that tie a beautiful bow and deliver our designs the world over, we are so, so grateful.
We wouldn't know what to do without you. Every follow, every like, every comment, every site visit, every purchase makes a difference to us and the children we support over in the Philippines. We hope to always be a company with heart - that loves, serves and makes a difference.
2020 - Giving Better
When we sat down to consider our goals for 2020, one of the things that we wanted to work on was giving better. In 2019, we supported the education of 4 children through the Rise Above Foundation, Cebu and with your help, we hope to continue this support through 2020.
In 2020, one of our goals is to grow to become a business that makes a direct impact through every single purchase that comes through our doors - and we want to know what matters to you.
