I’m Kylie a single mother to 3 boys, 1 diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability, and now possibly the second child as well. Unfortunately my middle child was just so eager to see the world he come just before 19 weeks. My life has brought many ups and downs, I’ve suffered from de
pression since I was 16. Which in turn I ended up with post-natal depression after each child. I’m so fortunate to have the most amazingly supp
ort from family, friends and professionals to get me through those dark times.
I’ve always been semi ambitious person, since I got my first job at 15. I worked my way from the bottom as a cashier, to kitchenhand all the way up to store manager at 20. By the time I was 23 I had suffered a mystery illness that took the function of my arms away. I was unable to work and then months later I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I worked hard during those 9 months to be able to hold my child when he was born. Over time I was able to build the strength back up in my arms.
After having my first child I knew I never wanted to miss a moment with my kids. I became a qualified nail tech and had a home based business for a couple years. In 2016 I originally opened my candle business called Handmade with love by Kylie. Unfortunately 6 Months later I had to close down to help run my family’s courier business.
End of 2017/ early 2018 I decided I was going to reopen my candle business with a new name. My 3 son’s inspire me every day, so I used their initials for inspiration.
E – Is for my eldest son with special needs. Whom shows me every day is a new day, and enjoy the small things in life.
P – Is for my angel son. Who entered this world at 19 weeks.
M- Is for my rainbow baby. He test me every day but always shows so much love and affection.
So I decided to use their initials. That’s how EPM Emporium was born.
