All that glitters is… probably in Adrienne Bosh’s sweet new lifestyle boutique. Adrienne, entrepreneurial powerhouse and proclaimed “sparkle boss,” has been working tirelessly to bring pink flair to South Beach. I interviewed Bosh for a Miami.com story in anticipation for her big announcement: a glittering new shop coming to Miami at the end of this summer. I walked away from this interview with such admiration for her mission to create a space that celebrates and empowers women — my kind of place! This boutique is more than just a pretty place to shop, but a hopeful “haven” to build a community of women that’s overflowing with friendship and support for one another. It was a privilege to interview Adrienne and get a sense of her excitement as her dream comes to fruition. She undoubtedly can teach both me and other ambitious women how to not only find their heart’s passion, but also make it beat. Read our interview below and tell me what you think!
Brace yourself, South Beach. Adrienne Bosh is about to paint the town pink. The wife of Miami Heat star, Chris Bosh, has been knee-deep in tulle preparing for the launch of Sparkle and Shine Darling, a boutique-meets-event space, planned to be as effervescent as the champagne served. Packed with girl power and glitter, the concept formed when Chris planned an inspiring Paris getaway for her and her girlfriends — and is now slated to open at the end of this summer.
What inspired you to create Sparkle and Shine Darling? One afternoon [in Paris], my friends decorated our suite’s balcony with treasures they had collected and secretly toted from home. The space had been transformed into a spectacular, vintage-themed Parisian champagne tea party. That entire experience — the quality time with my girlfriends, the glamour of dressing up, the glitz of a beautiful place, the excitement and awe — had me on top of the freaking world. I wanted to bring that experience and that feeling to other women.
What is your favorite way to celebrate with your girlfriends? Being present. Celebrating women is so important in today’s world. We celebrate by just being by each other’s side, whether it’s for dinner, grabbing drinks, a shopping run, celebrating a birthday, or even just a daily text to remind each other how much we are loved.
If you had to select one item to leave the store with, what would it be? I’m really loving my self-designed Sparkle and Shine Darling music cube — you’ll rarely find me without one.
Your cafe is filled with delectable treats — what is your favorite indulgence? The macarons are certainly my little pieces of heaven.
When you’re not catching up with your gal pals, what’s your favorite date night to spend with Chris? Anything from watching a live band to trying a new local food joint, as Chris and I are huge foodies. But no matter what, our dates always consist of laughing endlessly, bonding over our new memories, and coming up with new inside jokes.
You’re a stiletto kind of girl. What’s the one pair of shoes you can’t live without? My Tiffany Blue-bottomed wedding day Louboutins.
What have you learned about yourself since launching Sparkle and Shine Darling?You can do anything you set your mind to. What started as a living room overflowing with vision boards clipped from the pages of magazines is slowly evolving into a reality and it feels so good. Although the journey can be a tough one, never stop following the glitter road!
