Hello World! I'm Krissy Arora owner of Arora Boheme my small boutique located in Los Angeles! I'm 39 years old and I live in Glendale with my husband and little pup Zammy. I'm born and raised in Los Angeles to a Guatemalan mother and East Indian Father. I have two older sisters both whom are ridiculously talented! My middle sister Cindy is a writer and my older sister Nalini is a footwear designer. We were raised in Diamond Bar, which is about 45-60 minutes from Los Angeles.
In High School I knew I wanted to work in a creative field, but struggled to find my true passion. I went to beauty school at 16 years old and received my cosmetology license at 18 year old. I worked as a hairdresser for three years before deciding to go to college. I went to FIDM ( The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) and graduated with a degree in Merchandise Marketing. Along the way I really did struggle to find something I truly and genuinely love. Today I'm happy where my business is at and only want to push more for success. I'm still learning everyday and am definitely not perfect! I'm also taking classes, and learning new things to add to my business. You are never too old to go back to school or learn new things; I use to think it's too late, but I was so wrong! I watched my father be an entrepreneur my whole life. He'd run his business, close it, reinvent himself again with another business, and never giving up,ultimately he was a very successful entrepreneur. His absolute passion for business was so inspiring to me,and in this time in my life I want to live on my dads legacy whom is no longer here today.
What else can I tell you about me? I can be shy and awkward at times! My music taste is still stuck in the 80s with The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees. During my spare time I love being active and love my workouts. I love to travel, watch movies, go to flea markets and vintage shop, did I mention I love to eat extremely spicy food.That's me Krissy Arora. I wanted to start my blog posts introducing myself and my business.
In my future blog posts I'll get personal, talk shop, business, travel, buying, and my favorites!!! Have a great week! xo, Krissy
