Nola Rose Boutique offers affordable and unique clothing for the perfectly pampered princess.   Through social media, shoppers are able to browse the latest in kiddie couture.  Each week brings new items that can be ordered through Nola Rose Boutique Facebook and Instagram pages. 

Before starting this venture, Shanika researched the industry, making sure that her idea could develop into a full fledged business.  Her advice to others looking to take a similar leap of faith:

Pray and watch for “that thing” that comes naturally to you... The thing you would do for free. Once you’ve got it, become knowledgeable in every aspect on how to market and build upon it. Stop worrying about if others are already doing it because if the vision is truly God-given; it can’t fail. Stop worrying about what others will think-in fact, tell no one until you are ready to launch. Stop worrying about failing; you’ll never know if you don’t try. Eliminate excuses, develop a plan, execute the plan.
— Shanika Washington, Owner-Nola Rose Boutique
