We are over the moon here at Soma & Ulte about our launch. This has been a year in the making and it has all come together in the best way possible… with lots of joy, laughter, inspiration, tears, and OMG’s.
OMG we should totally do this
OMG we’re really doing it
OMG I’m so happy I’m not doing this alone..THIS. IS. TERRIFYING.
OMG yay this is so fun
OMG do we really have to post this much on social media??? For real?
OMG… WE DID IT!
Needless to say, we are exhausted and very proud of the outcome because there could have been many moments where we could have given up. Quite possibly, the true key to our success is the fact that Soma & Ulte is the ultimate partnership. Individually, we have always wanted to pursue our creativity in a more personal way. We each have our careers in the entertainment industry (Connie as a script supervisor and June as a Costume Designer) and we hoped our jobs would scratch that creative itch. However, we ultimately felt like there was something missing. After a conversation at work about our cats, crafting, and the ultimate shock that we live only 5 minutes apart, it became apparent that our love for the silly and serious things in life would actually be the catalyst to a friendship far more meaningful. Over the years we have discovered so much about who we are as individuals by just being together. Our friendship has become so strong that the word ‘soulmate’ is absolutely appropriate to describe who we are to each other and has become the inspiration for our name. We couldn’t have done this without the other, nor would it have multiplied as much positivity as it has now.
Thus, that positivity has now become the forefront of our goals here at Soma & Ulte and is the key to the missing link. Through our numerous conversations about ‘who we are’ we have uncovered that we want to be more than just another fashion blog or interior design blog. As women in our 30’s we realized that there are not enough places where females can come together to support each other positively….where we could offer inspiration to future generations. Therefore, Soma & Ulte has become a place for us to foster that loving community and, hopefully, continue to grow it.
Ultimately we have made it our mission to try to help women achieve a fun and do-it-yourself lifestyle. We will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday and Friday is dedicated to how to’s on furnishing and fashion. Wednesdays will be reserved for celebrating the talented women we know on our “Woman Crush Wednesday” series.
We are so thankful that you have decided to visit our page and can’t say how much we appreciate it. We know this is a personal and ever-evolving experience and we’re excited to share our adventures… the good, the bad, and the FABULOUS!
