The Mum Club Featuring Sisi & Seb

Carley is a women after our own heart, raising her daughter abroad away from her family for the first two years we can totally relate to and confirm it is no mean feet. It almost empowers you to believe that you are capable of anything, of which she is. Introducing Sisi and Seb, a brand Carley has created for the love of beautiful baby wear. Take a look at Carley's story...

MY NAME IS….

Carley 

MY BRAND IS…

Sisi and Seb 

 CAN YOU DESCRIBE IT IN ONE SENTENCE…

A collection of individual and beautiful items for your babes 

I FEEL MOST AT HOME…

When I am hanging out with my daughter (Sisi) who will be four soon, I don’t feel like myself when I have a rare occasion away from her! 

I AM A MUM AND…

it requires a lot of coffee (and wine!) 

BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU HAVE FACED AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME IT…

BEING A MUM!! it is also the most rewarding thing i have done and the love you get back is amazing. We have moved countries a few times since my daughter was born and we were on our own for two years so that made it all more challenging.  It has also made me fight harder for the things I want in life, and to do something I love for myself and for her. 

WHEN I GREW UP I WANTED TO BE…

A designer. I have always loved clothes & textiles, which led me onto knitwear design at Uni and then a buyer for a high street brand

MY FIRST STEPS TAKEN TO START MY BRAND WHERE...

Dreaming a lot about starting an amazing boutique filled with amazing small and individual brands. When Sienna was a baby I used to get really frustrated with the lack of clothes that weren’t gender specific, had loads of flowers on (for girls), bright pink and purple and didn’t contain sparkles. Don’t get me wrong, I like sparkles and flowers but just not really-in-your-face designs! we lived in Spain for a year where I found some beautiful brands and it got me thinking, what if…..

HOW DID YOU FUND YOUR START UP…

Saving hard and putting as much away as possible! 

HOW DO YOU WORK AROUND YOUR CHILDREN...

Sienna is very good and happy to get on with entertaining herself when needed, I have always ensured she has some independence and there are always things you have to juggle while being a mum; laundry, breakfast, cleaning the house, lunch, another laundry load, life admin etc, and starting a business, oh and a desk job 3 days a week.. (she is a creche for those 3 days)! But I make sure we have loads of activities planned together when she isn’t at creche and its all about planning your time effectively (and a lot of late nights working when she is in bed)

THIS KEEPS ME SANE...

WINE! 

I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT (PHYSICAL OBJECT)...

My diary, I write every single detail down about my life so I know where I have been (for memories) and where I am going (to organise myself)! 

MY BIGGEST RISK...

Starting up Sisi & Seb, when you throw your heart into something 

MY BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT...

Being told by my daughter that I am amazing (she may be a little biased) - total heart melt moment! and well, being a mummy! 

MY BEST PIECE OF ADVICE…

Do something you love and fight for what you want! If you are happy, your babies will be happy!

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE...

Growing SIsi & Seb to what I want it to be, its currently a slice of where I want to go with it! I want it to be an international retailer, to build on what I already have and add more brands into the mix. I already have some really exciting brands on board and product for AW17 so watch this space!
