We had the good fortune of connecting with Danielle Dove and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Danielle, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Work Life Balance has changed drastically for me since I started my brand in July of 2020. I still work my corporate job Monday through Friday, so I have to find time in between that to still focus on my brand. Learning how to complete my work for my corporate job, tend to my 4 year old son who has been home since last year due to the pandemic, still being a great wife, and keep my house in order is quite a task! Overall, I am still trying to learn what works best for my brand. I have gotten better at learning to plan my day accordingly so I am not overwhelmed. Time management is so key, but I am learning to enjoy this process and growth for 7twenty5 Cosmetics.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
7twenty5 Cosmetics is a brand that provides beauty products that are quality, long lasting, and ideal for any woman that love to feel pretty! I am most proud of my products, I took my time to make sure each item was top tier. Each product was sampled and we made sure the ingredients were perfect. Honestly, I am most excited to see how women showcase our products. Wearing makeup allows you to be creative and show how you can be beautiful in your own way.

Makeup has always been something that I loved since I was a teenager, and I didn’t know that one day this would be my true passion. I would say it’s always been in my life, but I never thought it would bring me here. I will say when blessed with the idea of starting a cosmetics line the knowledge I have been receiving seems to fall right in place. They say your gift makes room for you, and every step of the way I receive confirmation that this is where my true heart stands. Getting to this point it hasn’t been the easiest, but I wouldn’t trade this process for the world. This process has shown me to be resilient and passionate about my brand.

7twenty5 Cosmetics is a brand that understands what the needs are for pigmented, moisturizing, and long lasting beauty products. I love that our brand is a growing business and as time progresses we know we will leave a positive experience.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
As long as I’ve been in Atlanta I’ve honestly just started exploring within this last year! Lol (I know that sounds horrible lol). But if my bestfriend came to the city first of all we are going to eat! I lovvvveee food. Some of my favorite spots are: Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria, Pasha ATL, Poor Calvin’s, Fin & Feathers, Roc South Cuisine, & the list goes on! Slim & Husky’s has handmade pizzas that you can either create or choose from their signature menu. They even have adult slushies. Pasha ATL has great hookah and Mediterranean food. The DJ is rocking there as well. Poor Calvin’s is a Asian and American Fusion restaurant which has the best signature cocktails and lobster fried rice. Fin & Feathers is the perfect place for brunch or dinner. They have a live DJ, hookah, and great food. The vibe is amazing and perfect for a bestie date! Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
This process has been nothing but growth for me and I love what 7twenty5 Cosmetics is becoming as a brand. I first have to say thank you to my husband and my son! They are my biggest supporters and help every chance they get. My husband doesn’t know anything about makeup, but he’s the muscle and helps me with the financials. My 4 year old son is my biggest helper, he loves to be hands on when I pack orders for my 725 Babes. I also want to thank my family and friends for supporting 7twenty5 Cosmetics. Every like, share, and referral helps our brand grow so future 725 Babes can see why our products are top tier! To my business besties Teyana of The Cookie Palace, Taylar of J. Puree, & Jasmine of Jazzy Clothing thank you so much for being a shoulder to lean on! We all are growing our brands together and learning as we go. I am forever grateful for the support!
