AnnabelleLoiHeadshotAnnabelle Loi: Blogger. Production Assistant.

Me! I am the one who writes a majority of the blogs to come in the near future. 7 years ago, I started off as a production intern became an employee shortly after and blossomed into….a social media intern. When not at Zuka, I’m usually found being dramatic at fashion school or at an actor’s studio.

Sadie: New Muse. Bead Eater. Kisser Extraordinaire.

Wee Sadie has come to us all the way from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A beach girl at heart, she has taken over where Kai left off. (RIP 2016) The exception is the beads are hunted and then devoured. Toe kisses are still popular. rsz_1sadie_1
