first and foremost, THANK YOU for reading this and allowing us to live out our passion with you. it warms our heart when we get to hear about your experiences trying something you discovered on HOP. your support gives us life and keeps us going.

we thought it would be fun to get a little personal in this post and share a bit about each other from the other’s perspective…

Rylie: I met Rylie almost 10 years ago. The first night we met she invited me over for a sleepover and I learned very quickly this chick does not like to separate. She’s the ultimate girl’s girl with a personality that can relate to anyone. She has two looks: bombshell and cavewoman, there is no in between. She’s loyal to the core and will be your biggest cheerleader. Prefers talking on the phone vs. text which is the opposite of me, but somehow manages to keep me on the phone for at least 30 minutes every time. Rylie is the one who fueled my passion for skincare. I always took care of my skin, but never really invested in products or treatments. She introduced me to a whole new world, always knowing exactly what ingredients are in every product she recommends. She taught me the importance of facials and that they’re not just for pampering purposes. She’s also to thank for starting me on botox at 25. After i decided i was done with my corporate 9-5, i did some serious soul searching and sent Ry a text saying, “decided to enroll in esthetician school and launch a blog. you’re doing it with me.” to which she replied “i’m down.” there’s no competition in our friendship and we’ve truly never experienced jealousy with one another. she wants the best for me and quite frankly, anyone reading this blog. Her eyes light up when she finds a new serum that will “change your life” and i can promise she will never disappoint.

Brit: My fashion guru. Can walk into any closet and put 50 new outfits together you never thought possible. She’s beautiful, genuine, and kind and knows how to listen and gives strong advice – its saved me a few times. She knows how to work a room and can get anyone laughing with her sharp wit. She’s confident and not afraid to be different or stand out from the crowd. She knows how to put other’s at ease and those who know her look up to her and admire her. She’s the creative behind HOP and has opened my eyes to the world of “aesthetics.” Her strengths are my weaknesses and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this journey. She’s dedicated to anything she set’s her mind to and always pushes me to be the best I can be. She’s been there for me through thick and thin and knows how to perk me up whenever I’m feeling down. Ride or die friend that I couldn’t be more proud of.
