Our Story...

Who we are, what we do

Life is not easy. It is stressful, chaotic, and downright hard. No one knows this more than founder, Kayla Corona. Kayla learned just how difficult life could be even from a young age. From losing her mother to a lifelong battle with depression and addiction, to always being the misfit and outsider, Kayla learned that life is not always rainbows and sunshine, but it’s those darker times that shape you into who you are. If there is one thing that life has taught her, it is that through hard work, persistence, patience and courage in the face of adversity, anything can be achieved. But none of that is possible without taking the time to care for yourself.

 

Kayla wanted to create products that were an oasis, a chance to escape everyday life and add a little luxury to an otherwise tumultuous world. Products that are a chance to indulge without compromising and without regret. No bs. No ridiculous claims and cure-all propaganda. Just good, clean, vegan friendly products. She wanted to help bring a little beauty to the world and empower others to look and feel their best. Life is chaotic enough, and your personal care products don’t need to make it worse.

 

Normal bath and body products are filled with crap, and it doesn’t have to be that way. Why create more chaos when day to day life does enough of that already? It’s time to break some barriers. No longer do we live in an age were companies need to test their product on animals, and plant-based products are now far superior to their animal-based counterparts in many ways. That is why Kayla formulated her products to be made with simple, easy to understand, plant-based ingredients that are never tested on animals. The fact that they look, feel, and smell amazing is just a bonus.

 

Kayla has never been afraid to go against the grain, and her products are no different. Bold, dramatic, and creative, yet still simple, elegant, and beautiful… that is the Bird’s Creations way. There is beauty everywhere in this world, even in the darkest places, you just have to know how to see it. So go out, and be beautiful. And don’t be afraid to be a little bold.

 

By now you are probably wondering where birds play into this. Hi I’m Kayla, aka Bird. And these are the products I create. 😊

Kayla is a mom of three with a passion for creativity and an entrepreneurial mindset. From a very young age, Kayla would sit outside her stepdad’s tattoo shop and sell her painted rocks, macaroni necklaces, and other odds and ends that she would create from random things found around their home. When she taught herself how to make candles, she realized she found her calling. Kayla opened Bird’s Creations for the very first time in March of 2013 as a tiny Etsy store with only a handful of candles, some of which she still carries to this day. From there, she read books on other alchemical processes like soap making, perfume profiles, and how to formulate skin care and bath products. The rest just flowed.

 

Born and raised in the mountains of New Hampshire, Kayla has always been drawn to the natural world. She loved to go hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing with her dad, and snowboarding at the ski lodge her stepmom worked at. Though she loved the quaint, rustic lifestyle, she always had dreams of making it big in New York. After meeting her husband, a Navy sailor, she finally got the opportunity to live in the Big City – that is after living three years in a little island paradise known as Hawaii. But crazy city life and overly high prices pushed this small-town girl to just north of the city in the beautiful Hudson Valley. And Kayla got to combine her rustic lifestyle with her dreams of New York greatness.

 

Today, Kayla is now a certified member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild, and a graduate of New York’s Women’s Enterprise Development Center. A vegan herself, she is currently working towards both vegan and cruelty free certifications for her products, as well as becoming a New York State certified woman owned business. Ultimately, Kayla wants to show her own children that no matter what life throws your way, no matter what obstacles get in your way, if you want something bad enough, anything is possible.

Kayla’s interests include punk/industrial music, gaming (both mmo’s and tabletop), reading, gardening, cosplay, anime, horror movies, her cats and basically anything nerdy. She is an Aquarius, a mom, a wife, and would probably have been sorted into House Hufflepuff had she gotten her Hogwarts acceptance letter.
