Alrighty, so here I go...
I'm scared!! Will you hold my hand? I've been dreading this blog for a while.
I knew it was something I should do but, well, crikey it was yet another thing
to add to the list! I have a nearly 2 year old and no childcare so this whole mum
being a business woman is time consuming and needs infinite juggling, adding
the blog just seemed madness! But hey, I like madness so I'm embracing it!
Let's have it! So what would you like to know?
How about what I look like so you can see who your dealing with?
There I am. And Evie too. This was a few months back (June)
when mine and Evie's hair was much shorter. I had also, for
some peculiar reason, dyed my hair blue black! Interesting.
I had to cut my hair short as I'd become quite ill after having
Evie and my hair fell out! I am now on the mend but have to
look after myself. I have auto-immune hypothyroidism or
Hashimotos, which means my body is attacking itself and is
firstly destroying the thyroid gland. How delightful. You never
know how important these little organs are until they start failing!
And it's always the smallest ones! But I have found along with
acupuncture, being gluten free and lots of Bikram yoga you can
keep these things in check! I am here to prove the doctors wrong.
Anyway I digress...
Would you like to know why I started the business?
When Evie was born in January 2010 I was slightly startled at the amount of pink and twiddly
flowery stuff that there was on the market. I thought most of it was quite nauseating and knew
that there were better options out there. Some of which I had already bought. So I decided that
I didn't want to go back to my day job of being Head of Design for a music download company
but instead I would start a cool kids boutique which would also work, hopefully, around my family.
Being an illustrator and designer myself meant that making the website wasn't a big deal and we
could get it exactly how we wanted it. The 'we' is my husband James. He designed the logo and
did the first iteration of the site. He also has a hand in sourcing stuff. He's highly creative, another
designer, and always manages to find amazing things! So the pair of us are creative and are
attracted to bright, bold colours and patterns. We love having fun and laughing. Life is about having
a good time right ? This is reflected through our collection. Our ethos is to support up and coming
designers and artists, giving them a platform to be able to sell their wonderful wares and then the
public have a better choice of unique products. Simple.
So, there, I've spouted a bit about me.
I hope you found it interesting and gained a little bit of an insight about us.
My next entries will be more entertaining, with new fashions I've found, great art or books.
Everything to equip our little lovelies with a strong, bright, colourful and fun little life.
