It's October 2007 in Chicago, the leaves and temperature are falling. Enter a little girl from the sunshine
state named Jenny D ready to take on the big city. One minor setback, that gorgeous tan she adores no longer
comes naturally. She stares at her pale Cuban body and YIKES she must think quickly and
throws herself into the sunless tanning industry. Golden Girl Chicago is born.
I was lucky enough to meet someone early on who had the same passion for the beauty business and we become
fast friends. Enter Amie Miller. Client by client we build our businesses, Amie with hair and me with tanning.
We are doing what we love and paying the rent. HIGH FIVE! Eventually I realize that I cannot tan everyone that is calling
and Amie hops on the tanning train in 2009. I teach her everything I know about sunless tanning and the train is moving
a little faster. Chug a chug a. We build a little room in Lincoln Park and now I'm not tanning only door to door but have
a home base. Golden Girl tans are featured everywhere from Daily Candy, Timeout Chicago, NBC and Allure Magazine.
You name it, people were starting to hear about Golden Girl and jumping on the tanning train. I launch a sunless
product line featuring "real life" golden girls and by 2011 we are up to our earrings in tans and up-dos.
In August of 2011 Amie and I put our pennies together and start looking for a home base to build Golden Girl Chicago
the studio. We find a gem loft space with a view in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Chooo Choo!
We move in, let the creating begin.
Golden Girl has become a dream come true. It's now a community of girls with talent and passion for the beauty
industry under one roof. Each of us are unique in her own way, but we all believe the same thing: treat everyone
like GOLD and always go ABOVE and BEYOND. I can't say thank you enough to the people who have continued to
encourage and support Golden Girl. You are here on the pages of this site living and loving life and we thank you for including
us in your special moments. To all the future Golden Girls (and guys) we have yet to meet, no matter what they may say
it's always sunny in Chicago.
