I liked blush before it became a thing.
ONCE UPON A TIME
Working in the corporate world has its perks; you have a steady paycheck, you can take time off and still get paid. But all of that wasn't enough for me. I knew I had a greater purpose than sitting behind a desk working for someone else for the rest of my life. I decided it was time to find my purpose and create the life of my dreams. I left my 9-5 and never looked back. I will admit it was one of the scariest decisions of my life. But one for the books!
I’m DeAndra! Creative entrepreneur, Artist, Blogger and Educator. I live in Los Angeles, California — the San Fernando Valley, to be exact. I’m a true Valley girl at heart. I’m passionate about creativity and helping others build confidence within themselves to conquer the world.
I started working for myself full time in 2017, when I started my creative business Party Shop Avenue. My business specializes in luxury balloon decor for all occasions. It took me less than a year to get my business off the ground and have financial independence. Now it's time to fulfill my purpose and give back to others. I created this platform for creatives who are lost and still trying to figure it out.
We all have passion and purpose within us, but sometimes we need a little bit of help with finding it. i got you!
