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

Hi Mia, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
Yes, I live by plenty of quotes and affirmations. One that I constantly use is, “Everything happens for a reason.” This to me simply just reminds me weather good or bad weather a blessing or a lesson, it’s all planned out. Everything is happening to me/you for a certain reason and either your going to take the experience and learn from it or take it and drown even more. That’s all up to you, but if you tell yourself and remind yourself that this is only happening because its all apart of your story and plan. Than it won’t do nothing but make you work harder and learn how to avoid it happening again.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
AllureByAmari. Also known as “The home of the $4.50 bangle”. Shop with us for plenty of cute accessories! Bangles, Waist Beads, Bonnets, Headscarf’s, Etc. What sets me apart from other businesses, is not only do I work to perfect my business, I make sure every single customer is satisfied from the second you click “Place your order” till the minute you receive “Order Delivered.” I’m mostly proud of how no matter how many downfalls I run into, I have yet to quit. I am where I am today because of my drive and passion for what I do. I simply enjoy making/selling accessories for everyone to wear and love! No, it was not an easy road and it still is not. Every entrepreneur can tell you how not everyday is a booming sales moving day. There are some slow days maybe even some slow months, but you take that and you fix it and grab even more watchers attention to make purchases, it’s all about your advertisement skills! I just want everyone to know that AllureByAmari is there for every need once you are a paying customer, I work very hard to make your shopping experience with AllureByAmari A1!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There is so many places in Atlanta to visit! I would definitely take them to either “American Deli” or “JJ’s Fish & Chicken” both have multiple locations around the Atlanta area and are BOMB! Not only do I just have in mind some good food spots but as for safe and good shopping, Perimeter Mall located in Atlanta/Dunwoody, GA is personally my favorite mall to go shopping. Other spots to visit on my list would be Ponce City Market, Little Five Points, & The Atlanta Beltline. I would love to spend the evening riding scooters on the beltline and also have a painting session in the park attached to the beltline as well. After, as the night hopefully would be coming to an end, I would take them to “The Yard Milkshake Bar” Located in Downtown Atlanta for the most amazing presented milkshakes in the ATL!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
If I were to say I worked alone to get where I am today, It would definitely not be true. All in All, close family members, friends, and etc. gave me the encouragement when it was needed and still continues to do the same till this day. People I’ve never even met personally, support me by reposting some of our products and deals! Big shoutout too everyone that supports me honestly! It never (and I promise) NEVER goes unrecognized.
