Liliana E. Beltran- Lilly for short
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in Missouri City?
My family and I migrated from Mexico when I was just 5 years old. I am 32 now and have lived in Missouri City since then.
Child & Age:
I have two boys, Evan who is 12 and Mason who is 8.
One thing about living in the Sugar Land area that has surprised you the most:
How wonderful people are! We have the best neighbors and community ever!
What is your favorite place to grab a bite in town?
The New MOD Pizza location in Riverstone.
Favorite things to do/shops to visit in Sugar Land? (Basically anything that you absolutely adore that is local!)
We absolutely love to drop by Steel City Pops in Town Square. The farmers Market on Lexington and Sprouts Farmer’s Market is our favorite place to grab all the sweet stuff. They have the best bakery!
Favorite memory or story that involves being in Sugar Land?
A few actually. I got my first job at First Colony Mall when I was 16. Also went on a first date and got my first kiss from my now husband, Erick, at Chilli’s off of SW Freeway & Williams Trace 😉
Tell us about your business venture and how you’ve managed to find so much success on Instagram. ☺
So Daily Craving was founded five years ago in an attempt to connect with other women who like myself were crazy about shopping/fashion. It has since then evolved into a full time business and although my days are crazy, I love everything about it. Everything on Instagram has honestly come organically. I am proud to say that I have never done anything to alter the number of likes or follows I have on that platform. It’s a platform I love because it allows me to connect with my audience in a more personal level.
One piece of advise you would want new mompreneurs to know.
Believe in yourself and what you stand for and keep working hard even when you feel like giving up. Remember ladies, success doesn’t happen overnight
What’s the happiest moment of your life?
Gosh there’s so many! But giving birth to my boys would have to be #1
What worries you the most right now?
Making sure I am present in my kids daily lives as much as possible, especially my middle schooler. That’s very challenging when you’re an entrepreneur
What’s the funniest thing about being a parent?
That I often feel like a kid raising two kids!
Who is the most influential person in your life?
My dad for sure!
What brings you the most joy right now?
So many things! I am truly blessed.
If you could change one thing about Sugar Land, what would it be?
I’d add a little more of the city into our suburbs. More cute cafe’s where one can work for a few hours + get a cute photo for the gram;) More popular fashion retailers like Zara, Madewell & Urban Outfitters so that I don’t have to drive inside the loop for family fun.
