Hello! Today, I have a new etsy shop to introduce to you guys- Wander Mission. Wander Mission was founded by fellow Philadelphia University classmate, Chantal King. Wander Mission sells stylish, printed headbands that sell for between $5-$7. Talk about a steal!

Yesterday, we got together for a brief photoshoot. Chantal gave me the "Sunflower Turban Headband" to review. It retails for $7 in Wander Mission here. I am absolutely in love with this headband- the playful print and lovely colors make this a wonderful addition to my wardrobe.

For my look, I decided to pair the headband with this green polka dot dress to play up the colors in the headband. Red lipstick, white sunglasses and flatforms completed my look.

Read below to hear more about Wander Mission.

What do you major in at Philadelphia University? I am in the five year physician assistants program.

What drew you to your major? I have always loved the medical field and knew I wanted to do medicine since I was a child. As I grew older, I was drawn to physician assistant's  because they have more interaction with patients then doctors do and also physician assistants are able to work in any field of medicine as opposed to specializing in only one field like doctors. Also, I just love helping people and I felt that being a Physician assistant would allow me to make a difference in the quickest way possible.

When did you open Wander Mission? February 9th, 2014

How did you decide on the shop name? I decided on the name Wander Mission because I felt it combined my desire to travel the world and my desire to help people on my travels.

Why did you decide to open Wander MissionI started wander mission when I found out I was going to Ghana over the summer of 2014 to help with a medical clinic. Wander Mission was a way to raise money for the trip and medications. When I graduate from college, I plan on moving overseas and serving in a medical clinic. The purpose of Wander Mission now is to help me build my mission fund.

What has been the biggest struggle in opening your shop? The biggest struggle has been getting the word out. Opening the shop was not too difficult and making the headbands was not too difficult, but marketing my headband and letting people know about my shop has been a little hard.

What is your favorite part of running your own etsy shop? My favorite part of running my shop is watching it grow and continually working on it. It is really cool to see something you've started and worked hard on flourish overtime. It's just an amazing feeling!

What advice would you give to those looking to open their own etsy shop? My advice would be to keep working hard and not give up! Your business is not going to be a success overnight. Keep believing in what you're doing and eventually your shop will flourish. Also, make sure that you love your products and love what you're doing so that it always remains fun and not a hassle!
