say hello to hoadys

Hi, I'm Rob!

I asked my girlfriend out and built a business from it.

For a while now, as you may know, I've been posting to Tiktok. In late 2020, I got my first ever viral video.

I met a girl in August who I would later ask to be my girlfriend, however I had no idea how to ask her out. What do you do in that situation? It needs to be special, right?

Her house was constantly full of candles, and the idea struck me; what if I put a hidden message in the candle saying, "will you be my girlfriend"?I decided to record the complicated process of making candles with absolutely zero experience, and it actually went pretty well. The video, that is. Not the candle.

After a huge demand for the product, I got to researching and finally perfected my candles. I hope you love them.

I'm Josie.

Hey, I’m Josie. If you’ve followed any part of Rob’s journey to creating Hoadys, you probably know me as ‘the girlfriend’ or ‘the girl he made a candle for’.

In early 2021 I quit my job in retail and joined Rob to help Hoadys grow to it's full potential. I started out in the production of the candles, but quickly realised I was craving doing something a little more creative.

So, if you were wondering who desgined the website you're currently on, or who takes all the content for our Instagram, that's me!

I love my job - it lets me be as creative as I've always been craving, and I get to work with my best friend every day.
