I LIVE IN… Richmond - greater London
I FEEL MOST AT HOME… when we all get cosy under a blanket with the hubby and babies and watch an old movie with warm popcorn. Duvet days are the best
I AM A MUM AND…obsessive stripe wearer - You can’t go wrong with a stripe and I currently own over 50 striped clothing items….eek
THINGS THAT KEEP ME AWAKE AT NIGHT…My snoring other half which always wakes me and then my mind goes into business mode and I make mental to do lists for the next day. But my best ideas seem tocome at night so maybe the snoring is a blessing in a very noisy disguise
WHEN I GREW UP I WANTED TO BE… A Ballet Dancer - I was lucky enough to dance with the English National Ballet and it was a dream come true. My amazing parents came to literally every single show. Looking back they must of spent an absolute fortune in tickets.
MY FIRST STEPS TAKEN TO START MY BRAND WHERE…I had a very difficult pregnancy so I had to take maternity leave very early. So during that time I spent a lot of time online searching for children’s interiors & buying items for Daisy’s nursery. I found it extremely difficult as all the modern and cool items were in Australia or from Scandinavia and I was spending a fortune on shipping(sometimes more than the actual products). That was the light bulb moment. I wanted to make the exciting adventure of creating your little ones room a great deal easier for parents.
I had a vision of building an umbrella of beautiful brands, all made with love by fellow mamas - mostly found through the amazing world of Instagram. I'm a keen shop small campaigner so this was very important to me. I work around my little muse, Daisy (plus she loves Dinosaurs, hence the business name) and she tests all the products we receive and sell on the site. I wanted to really go outside the box as girls items don't need to be Pink and fluffy andboys can also play with prams.
THE HARDEST PART OF MOTHERHOOD IS…Patience…..patience and more patience. It can be hard to do things on repeat over & over again and battle with your child on how you peeled the banana incorrectly , so I learnt to take a moment, breath in & out, smile and carry on.
THIS KEEPS ME SANE... My girlie pals - they know me inside out and how to lift me if I’m feeling down. The power of friendship is untouchable. Plus a glass of wine comes in a close second
I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT (PHYSICAL OBJECT)...My phone - terrible I know. My eye brow pencil is pretty high on my list too.
MY BIGGEST RISK... Leaving my jobas a fashion buyer which I adored but taking the leap into the unknown - but it has paid off and I love my new venture with also allows me to spend more time with Daisy
MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT... My Daughter Daisy - without a shadow of a doubt. I still need to pinch myself when I look at her and that I made a miniature human
MY BEST PIECE OF ADVICE…Believe in yourself and follow your dreams. D&D started on a post it note and now its a reality
