I am Donna, and I am the founder of Lush & Olive. This has been my passion project since September 2016 when I went on a trip to Marrakech, Morocco. Exotic as it sounds? YES! I could get lost in the souks for hours intoxicated by the colors and textures that enveloped me. I found myself saying, ” I could do this every day.” So, given that the last five years of my life have been one big explosion of YOLO, I decided, THIS would be my new adventure.
My love for travel began many years ago with an insatiable curiosity for the unknown. Here I am (14 countries later), merging that calling to see the world and my passion for home décor. My hope is that this unique collection of accessories from my travels will spark your wanderlust and that those things that have defined my journeys will inspire YOU to see the world!
As a nurse for the last eleven years, I found a calling in supporting others in their time of need, so it was important that I continue to do that through my business. For that reason, Lush & Olive has pledged to donate 10% of each purchase to organizations that support ending violence against women and girls and empowering them through mentorship, training and education. It is my goal to raise awareness about these issues and support these charities that are doing amazing things. It is an exciting time for women and now is the time to create the change we want to see in this beautiful world. Thank you for stopping by!
