If you're looking for a farmer-mama-fashionista-business owner...you've landed in the right spot! Meet Uyen, pronounced Win-ha. She's the babe behind Crew & Lu, a sweet line of clothing for girls + mama matching swimsuits too, as well as a mama to two cuties. Her farmhouse she calls 'wannabe', but I think anyone with a chicken coop larger than a playhouse and some goats totally qualifies as a mini farm...and a lot of entertainment.
Seems like a year ago I met this lovely lady on our favorite social platform (thanks Instagram), fast forward 12 months and you feel like you practically know the person. However, these questions, I may have only known two of the answers. So there you have it, sometimes there is a little something more off Instagram. Don't worry Insta, we still are just as obsessed with you as before. If you don't already, you can follow along with her and her hubby Lance over on @house_of_lu.
Oh, and we can't believe that Crew & Lu is already 4 &1/2 years old. Hats off to you mama! The juggle is real! Now rea don for our fun interview with Uyen.
What is exciting in life right now?
Our little farm life is about exciting as it gets. I just got our first green egg from our Easter Egger chicken so that is pretty exciting to me. It's the little things.

What do you think the most important life lesson for someone to learn?
I think not to be afraid of failure. Taking risks is always a scary thing but if you trust your gut, it can either work out really well or be a life lesson. To me life lessons equal to constantly evolving which is what I always want to do. Evolve.

Oh gosh, how do I choose? I'm a sucker for anything color block. Especially a great romper!

I'm a total dog lover and can name a ton of dog breeds! Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Boxer, Pekinese, Chihuahua, Poodle, Basset Hound, Heeler, French Bulldog, Yorkshire Terrier, German Shepard, I could go on and on hahahaha.
If you could raid one woman's closet, who would it be?
I would raid Olivia Palermo. I'm obsessed with her style.
What is the bravest thing you've ever done?
I wish I could say something cool like sky diving but I'm not that cool. Ha! I wouldn't say I'm a thrill seeker, in that brave aspect but I like to take a lot of risks, decision wise like starting my business.
