The Mum Club Featuring Mother Like No Other
If you haven't seen this brand lurking about your instagram feed then what kind of mother are you!? Ok thats a joke, if you haven't seen them do not start questioning yourself as a mother, dear lord! But they are everywhere, and we are a little obsessed. Catchy logo- tick, Slogan Tees-tick and comfy sweats- tick I mean what is not to love. So we caught up with Becky, the founder to find out what inspired her to start her thriving brand.
MY NAME IS … Becky
MY BRAND IS… Mother Like No Other (@mother_like_no_other)
I LIVE IN… The beautiful city of Norwich
I FEEL MOST AT HOME…in a sunny destination with a backpack on my back and a camera in my hand.
I AM A MUM AND…love watching our two little girls grow.
THINGS THAT KEEP ME AWAKE AT NIGHT…the children! They do, but I also find myself thinking about ideas, the next designs, ways to help empower and share my experiences. I'm always brimming with ideas and love love being creative and seeing an idea develop!
WHEN I GREW UP I WANTED TO BE…a drummer in a band, and I was for a while!
MY FIRST STEPS TAKEN TO START MY BRAND WERE...@mother_like_no_other really started to kick off after chatting to some amazingly inspiring women at an NFK meet up (a socialising event for small businesses in Norwich), followed by an @grlpwrgang inspirational afternoon back in, I think October, where @mother_pukka and many other incredible women presented.
THE HARDEST PART OF MOTHERHOOD IS…finding time for some inner calm. Beyond the challenges that it presents it's so important that parents have some time to themselves. To reflect and grow. We all change in so many ways as a result of having children, yet at the same time its important to remember who we were and what we enjoyed doing before they arrived.
THIS KEEPS ME SANE...coffee/wine/cake - doesn't matter in which order!
I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT (PHYSICAL OBJECT)...eyeliner. Sounds awful doesn't it, but it's my warpaint. I feel it hides a multitude of sleepless nights and at the same time somehow makes me feel as though I can do anything!
MY BIGGEST RISK...leaving a really well paid job to go traveling in 2012 to then fall pregnant a month before returning home; to no money, no job and no home. We don't like to make things easy for ourselves!
MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT...having babies of course!
MY BEST PIECE OF ADVICE…to keep going! If you believe in something enough, don't let go of it, keep going until you can't go anymore. Once you've channelled or projected a thought, keep thinking it as it will happen.
AND LASTLY A PERSONAL ONE! I WOULD HAVE DONE THIS DIFFERENTLY IN MY LABOUR…I don't think I would have done anything differently second time around, but I really wish I'd taken a hypno-birthing course with our first. I learnt so much and felt so empowered the second time. Realising the importance to trust my body made such a difference!
