My name is Vivian

What is Homie SF?
How did you choose this name?
Plans for the future?
Homie SF is an AAPI business creating uniquely cute, handmade goods that is created and ran by me, Vivian, with the help of my partner and family!
I'm a lover of all things cute and colorful and that is reflected in my work.
This company started in January of 2022 after needing to find a creative outlet from my 9-5 tech job.
The inspiration for making soap came after watching one of my favorite Korean lifestyle YouTuber, make these cute, small gummy bear soaps. From there, I started to watch hundreds of YouTube videos and doing a ton of research to learn how to make my own soaps.
My first batch of soaps were not the cutest, but hey they were usable and that was enough for me to fall in love with making soaps! Now here I am with more than 20+ handmade soaps in my collection and I have began to expand my small business into a cute gift shopヾ(☆▽☆)
I chose the name Homie SF because homie to me means two things. The first meaning is friendship and being friends. The second meaning is home and SF because I live in San Francisco, CA.
My original reason for starting this business was to help relieve stress and find a creative outlet, but now my motivation for keeping this business going is because I want to meet new homies, and I want to be able to introduce uniquely cute products into your home and life (*＾ω＾)人(＾ω＾*)
In the future, I hope to be able to release more cute goods with my art like keychains, totes, t-shirts, and etc! It is so exciting to see this growth and which direction I am headed currently with my small business.
I cannot wait to create and offer more uniquely cute goods for my homies
It is so mind-blowing to me every day when I reflect back on where I first started in January 2022. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think I would get to this point and it make me so excited to see what Homie SF will become in the future!
Thank you to all my homies for joining me on this journey and for supporting my dream ♡(>ᴗ•) I would not be where I am without you!
