A Place for Audre

A Place for Audre combines Accountability Coaching and Home Styling, two of the founder's passions. Working on the belief that the work done together internally should be reflected externally in your space, clients discover through coaching sessions how to get out of their own way, and establish tools that support internal growth. After that, the focus is turned to aesthetics and styling of one's space, figuring out what best honors an individual's needs.

Meet Kayla

Kayla, the creator behind A Place for Audre, has a background in Black feminism, anti-oppression work and years as a Social Worker working with marginalized communities. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, she is now currently based in Berkeley, CA.

When Kayla works with clients, she likes to reflect what an individual is putting out in their home and in their life, and gives them an opportunity to assess what they want to keep and what they want to shift. She advocates for growth, create a safe holding space for that growth, and keeps everyone she works with focused on their goals.

Kayla's hope is that after working with her, you will feel more autonomy and breathing space in your everyday life and your home.

All My Boys Shop

All My Boys Shop offers casual, cool, and most importantly, comfortable apparel for little boys.

Meet Halima

Halima started All My Boys Shop two years ago out of necessity, when she found there to be a lack of fun clothing available for boys. As a mama to three young boys, she wanted to give them something they'd enjoy wearing and also wanted to create an outlet for herself outside of being a military wife and mom. It made sense to her to combine her sewing experience, fashion marketing, and management degree with her passion for creating things.

Halima is a lover of all things art, including her first love of fashion design. She is very passionate about spreading love, peace and positivity through her clothing and throughout her life.

Playbox Lashes

Playbox Lashes is a purpose-driven beauty brand that was inspired by the idea of uniting people through nostalgia, creativity and self expression through playful use of makeup.

Meet Tasha Lee

As the owner, creative director and founder of Playbox Lashes, Tasha Lee has always had a passion to help people.

Moving around a lot as a kid helped Tasha Lee to understand differences and understand people in a broader aspect. To know what it feels like to “not be included” or “feel accepted” really pushed her to want to create something different.

In 2017, Tasha Lee lost everything and was uprooted from her hometown in Providence, Rhode Island and moved to Maryland. The following year she had a vision for her business and knew it was time to create something bigger than herself and use that platform to ultimately reach people.
