The Mum Club Featuring Mumdays
We are a little bit in love with this new and exciting brand. Mumdays, set up by @Ursula.Rose.Twins is chic, unique gifting for Mums. Perfectly researched; all gifts and experiences have been hand selected by Mum approved partners, beautifully branded; the pink and foil packaging is enough of a gift alone and carefully considered; a redemption term of 18months instead of the usual 9 as they know how busy we get! Whether its a baby shower gift for a mum to be, a birthday present for your own mum or just to say 'you're doing a great job' to a friend mums everywhere will leap with joy upon receiving such a treat.
MY NAME IS … Ursula Brunetti
MY BRAND IS… Mumdays
I LIVE IN… London with my French husband and our boy/girl twins.
I FEEL MOST AT HOME… at my mum’s house on the Isle of Wight, snuggled under a blanket watching a film with a hot cup of tea and some chocolate!
I AM A MUM AND… an entrepreneur, a Gemini, a goal setter, a romantic, an impulse shopper.
THINGS THAT KEEP ME AWAKE AT NIGHT… I usually worry about all the things I need to remember and am constantly sending myself emails to myself to read in the morning just before I drift off!
WHEN I GREW UP I WANTED TO BE… a vet! Instead I became a vegetarian which is much easier to achieve.
MY FIRST STEPS TAKEN TO START MY BRAND WERE... getting advice from fellow entrepreneurs and attending Virgin Start Up events – it’s always good to hear about other people’s successes and importantly their mistakes too. Although I’ve already made my fair share with mumdays, I’m excited to develop the business and watch it grow.
THE HARDEST PART OF MOTHERHOOD IS… trying to keep your children happy, safe and sane in a world that can sometimes feel completely bonkers.
THIS KEEPS ME SANE... Hanging out with friends who appreciate RuPaul’s Drag Race as much as I do.
I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT (PHYSICAL OBJECT)... Shoes!
MY BIGGEST RISK... Deciding to set up mumdays feels like the biggest gamble I’ve ever made – I’ve put my heart and soul into it and that can feel very scary at times.
MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT... Making a mum feel special with a mumdays experience is hugely satisfying – it’s such a huge motivator knowing that the business exists to send mums (who never stop giving out) something that reminds them just how special they are.
MY BEST PIECE OF ADVICE… Be present.
AND LASTLY A PERSONAL ONE! I WOULD HAVE DONE THIS DIFFERENTLY IN MY LABOUR… I wasn’t in control of my labour at all, it was the complete opposite to how I wanted to give birth as I very nearly died from a significant haemorrhage after a natural delivery. I wish I’d been able to hold my twins for longer after meeting them.
