About Us




 Yalla is an Arabic word that translates to “lets go”, but it is a word that also embodies movement, action, encouragement and positivity. Yalla is a small word, but its influence is tremendous.

We all have our personal dreams, ideas, goals, and bucket lists that we say we are going to do one day. These thoughts linger in the back of our minds, but we become attached to our obligations and responsibilities that they often get put on the backburner.  We keep saying to ourselves that one day we will have the time do the things we want, and before we know it, we no longer have the drive or the energy to them.

My goal was to create something that would resonate with others and remind them of the joys of the smaller things. Creating a small business has been an adventure and one that I am thankful for. I spent months debating whether I could even take on such a venture. I was afraid of taking the risks and ultimately failing.  However, I knew that if I kept waiting for the perfect time, it would not happen.

"Yalla was the inner mantra I used to encourage myself to keep moving. I would say:

“Yalla, lets do it”.

“Yalla, what are you waiting for?”

“Yalla, why not?”

“Yalla, Yalla, Yalla!”


Naturally, Yalla became the name of the company because it reflected my purpose and energy.


I hope that the spirit of Yalla makes it into your home and tickles your senses. I hope that it reminds you to do the things you want now instead of tomorrow. I hope it gives you the encouragement to do the things that make you happy, regardless of your doubts and insecurities.
