Meet Alicia (Ali) Quero of The White Elephant in South Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alicia (Ali) Quero.

Alicia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
The White Elephant is an Herbal and Spiritual “GO TO” shop and is in the heart of South Miami. I am currently working a full-time job and have our “store” out of my home. We have everything from designer jewelry to vintage art, hand-made soap, oils, beautiful original succulent arrangements, artifacts, hand made spiritual baths, personalized crafted Sage bundles and collectibles, The White Elephant pulsates with creativity. We are passionate about bringing you individual items that are just that little bit extra- special, ramp up your style, make you or your home feel fabulous and maybe even give you a little Mojo boost!

We will also have a Tea/ Coffee bar where everyone can come and just sit and relax and enjoy a cup of delight. At the forefront of Tea Gastronomy, we at The White Elephant will have a vast collection of fine harvested teas and signature blends from around the world. Our baristas will customize and blend each tea based on the needs of our client. Whether you need more energy, a hangover cure or an immune boost, guests are assured to have the perfect brew set in front of them. Although at first, you might feel like you have stepped back in time into an apothecary, you will soon realize that The White Elephant is redefining the way you drink tea.

So, who am I? Well, I’m just an ordinary girl with a big dream and a genuine love for all things Spiritual, Natural, Boho and Vintage. This passion led me to start the search for all those not-so-ordinary items that we could piece together and create a fun place to shop and find inspiration. I wanted to create a place that was unique and different from all the other spiritual shops out there. Whatever it is you are looking for or need, if we do not have it, we will help you find it!

This means I have a personal connection with every single product which I could not find in local stores, with many items made by hand, individually with love bringing an extra-special unique touch to everything I create and offer. Our store will offer only the very best and authentic spiritual readers, Yoga instructors and Reiki masters.

The White Elephant is a coming together of passion and friendship, we hope you will connect with us and will be inspired to join us on our stylish, and spiritual journey to… who knows where! 🙂 My goal is to help as many women and men look and feel great and fabulous during my first year and for years to come after opening my doors.

Also, I will passionately be dedicated to building a business that can give back to others who are most in need and hope to announce plans to support some very special charitable projects in the future as we grow the company.

I am very excited about the creation of my Botanical line. I am a firm believer that everyone who is put in your life is meant to be there. My best friend and family one day mentioned I should just make these products myself self and I thought they were crazy. I didn’t have enough time in the day to do this… I had a full-time job! But life had other plans for me; I met a wonderful soul on social media and we instantly clicked; it was like we were friends for thousands of years. Ironically enough she helped me by pushing and motivating me to step out of my comfort zone. And by doing this; Bellis Botanicals was born!

ABOUT BELLIS BOTANICALS:
Bellis Botanicals creates truly organic products from scratch, drawing from natural ingredients found in the wild of Creation. Bellis Botanical owner Ali understands the very real impact of helping your body protect and strengthen itself. She is committed to being more mindful about what her family and friends are putting into and onto their bodies and shares the benefits of doing so with anyone who will listen.

Ali had a dream and a vision, and she ran with it. After working over 25 years in the corporate world she realized that there was more to life than the everyday rat race and sitting hours in traffic. She leaped a faith and embraced her dream to not only make her life a better one but to do everything possible to help others. Realizing that “The old natural way” was the way to live. The origin of most medications and products are herb and plant base, so why ingest or absorb anything that has chemicals added to it?

Her dream is to go back to nature’s way of being and rid toxins from our bodies.

Today, Bellis Botanicals represents methodically researched, tested, and trusted formulations to help people live healthier, more beautiful lives. We pledge to offer our customers the purest products possible with ingredients purchased from reputable suppliers who practice sustainable and cruelty-free manners. All products are created and packaged in Miami FL by Ali.

Bellis Botanicals is also “Blessed to be a Blessing” by striving to help improve the lives of others and the world we live in.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I will be totally honest. It has been easy to be The White Elephant. I am humbled to say that I have been blessed with an incredible and loyal amount of followers and clients. My clients are what keep me going and keep me working hard on making my dream come true on opening our store. It has not been easy finding the perfect location with the space big enough for all my ideas and to finalize my dream. But I am a true and firm believer that everything happens when it needs to happen; not necessarily when I want it to happen. It has been hard but I know every step will be well worth it all.

Tell us more about the business.
The White Elephant is a coming together of passion and friendship, we hope you will connect with us and will be inspired to join us on our stylish, and spiritual journey to… who knows where! 🙂 My goal is to help as many women and men look and feel great and fabulous during my first year and for years to come after opening my doors.
