Here's how it started......
At the end of last year 2019, after I (Alanna) was told I was in remission from my breast cancer, I wanted to do something new and exciting with my daughter Faith. Faith was effected very emotionally during my sickness and I wanted to build her confidence back, show her she’s strong and and that there is a whole world out there! Thoughts of speaking out, kindness, being strong and empowered, and just being you, were key thoughts that kept coming to mind, and I knew I wanted to create something that focused on these thoughts. Through a lot of brainstorming, I came up with an idea to create a clothing line that would empower, express, thrive and influence. I wanted Faith to know the feeling of empowerment and show her that there is nothing she can’t do, try accomplish or be, even if it does end up not working out. I wanted to cheer her on during setbacks and remind her part of being strong is sticking with it and committing. To build her confidence that comes from knowing win or lose. Faith was super excited and wanted to bring one of her best friends in to join us. We are truly grateful that our friends and neighbours Goretti Fordyce and her daughter Breanna joined, and now as two mom and daughter duos we created Life + Love Labels.
We’d love it if you’d like our social media pages, share our pages and posts. Let’s try to reach out to all women out there to support and empower each other, build confidence, and inspire others to be who they really are! Thank you for all your support! ❤️❤️❤️
