We are the self-proclaimed snack queens. Whether it’s healthy or unhealthy snacks, we don’t discriminate. So one can only imagine our excitement when Halloween rolls around. FREE CANDY EVERYWHERE. We may be too old to trick-or-treat, but we will go to the extent of borrowing someone’s kid just to chaperone. By the way, who even made an age limit on trick-or-treating? Even when we can’t score a kid, staying at home with a giant bowl of candy is too dangerous. Let’s just say not every kid will be walking away with goodies. As snack experts, we are providing you with a trusty guideline of what candies NOT to buy. You don’t want to be known as the house on the block with weak ass candy. Trust us. People talk.

You also can do nails and makeup, are there plans for Bella’s Creations to expand more of those services?
I am dabbling into everything and see what I can add to my business. I can do eyelash extensions and a lot of other things. I have bridal clients, girls for prom, Quinceañeras, Communions, and Baptisms.
Most salons you go to there is a receptionist, a shampooer, and multiple stylists, yet you do it all. Does it ever get overwhelming?
Ummm…well, I have a hard time separating both [work and home]. Even though I have a work number and a personal number, I always say once I’m done working I’m not going to answer the phone. At the same time that’s money! Also, people get really sensitive and I don’t want them to go to anyone else. It’s my home, but it’s my work front. I relax when I do hair. I love it so much. I know it sounds cliché, but the saying, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life,” it’s true. I don’t see it as working. I get paid to create art. I get to play with hair all day. Who wouldn’t love that?
Where do you see yourself in the future? Would you like to expand your business into opening up your own space one day?
I wanna have a shop. I wanna have a barber shop. I wanna be the only girl working there. I just wanna be the boss of a bunch of dudes. (YESSSS!!!)
You’re 24-years-old, you have a 4-year-old son, a successful business, what advice do you have for young, working, mothers like yourself?
It could be done. It’s not easy. It’s definitely very hard. Society won’t make it easier on you. The fact that you are a young mom–society already makes you feel low. But it could be done, I did it. I sacrificed a year out of my son’s life to do it. Now I am able to give my son everything he wants, deserves, and more than he desires. I would say keep going forward. Nothing in life comes easy. Nothing worthwhile will be easy. If you have the passion and love for it, do it. Your child should be the biggest motivation in the world.
Halloween is seven days away and we couldn’t be more ecstatic. In case your schedule doesn’t allow for a visit to some haunted houses, you can at least watch some horror films at home. We rounded up seven of our favorite scary movies currently streaming on Netflix for your viewing pleasure. Cuddle up with bae or grab some of your closest friends and make it a girls night in while carving pumpkins– just be sure you go to sleep with one eye open! Continue reading
“How did I lay her out, man?!” Those are the thoughts of 24-year-old roller derby bad ass, Noelle Smythe. Not one to take the traditional route in life, she left Chicago’s University of Illinois after three months and decided to play life by ear. It wasn’t until 2012 that the universe lead her to a sport that she did not expect to fall in love with as fast as she did. She currently plays for the roller derby team Chicago Outfit and within her rookie year has become the lead score girl. Still not knowing where life will take her, the Chicago native knows one thing: that she’s taking roller derby along for the ride. If you didn’t know before, you’re about to learn now that Chicago girl’s ain’t something to mess with. Continue reading
