Hi, my name is Lailani. I was born and raised in Northern Spain and have been living in Southern California for over half my life. I have been a BTS fan since the beginning of 2018. I work as a registered nurse specializing in neurosurgery. On my days off, I love to travel and spend time with my boyfriend John, our maltipoo (Pasquale) and both of our chinchillas (Stella & Luna). I am grateful for having found a passion that allows me to get creative while fangirling over BTS.
I started BOBA WITH LUV as a cupsleeve event in June of 2019 to honor BTS' 6th debut anniversary. The first event took place over the course of three days in a small mom and pop shop, HEEKTEA (Gardena). This event ended up garnering BTS ARMYs from all over the state. HEEKTEA was on its last week operating with only two staff members (Billy & Cindy). That weekend alone, Cindy had made approximately about 300 drinks per day. On the last day of the event, I remember seeing both Billy and Cindy going over the days' receipts in total disbelief.
The last two events celebrated the birthdays of Namkook (September) and Taejin (December), which took place at HEERE TEA (Fullerton). By this time, the amount of guests had doubled causing lines to wrap around the entire building. Some guests even waiting up to 5 hours to receive their drink, cupsleeve and freebie bag. Due to COVID-19, we had to unfortunately cancel the Sope event last March due to safety issues and CDC guidelines advising to avoid large crowd gatherings. BOBA WITH LUV is now in the process of transitioning into limited strict reservation-only events for everyone's safety.
I can't thank you enough for supporting my events over the last year. I have met some of the kindest BTS ARMYs from this experience alone. I hope you continue to stay with us on this journey as we continue to innovate BOBA WITH LUV!
Thank you for visiting our shop!
