A story of a self taught ceramicist & jeweler

One and Eight run by mum of 3 Susie is a designer, creator and owner of One & Eight, she’s a self taught ceramicist & jeweler, who enjoys learning through experimentation. What influenced you to start this business? For a number of years I worked in London as a buyer and product developer at a large department store.

I loved the simplicity and crisp whiteness of...

Sally Hall of Dorothy & Theodore

Dorothy & Theodore is an online shopping boutique (www.dorothyandtheodore.com) created specifically for parents who do not wish to wholly compromise on style in order to accommodate the needs and wishes of their children.  It is the 5th ‘baby’ of co-owners Sally & Emma who, from the day that we agreed it was a good idea to jump out of an aeroplane together at 13,000 feet, realised they had found a like-minded life-long friend in each other, both willing to take calculated risks if the rewards justified it. They met over 8 years ago...

My journey: Victoria Casebourne

My journey as a mum in business: Victoria Casebourne It has taken me a very long time to truly understand who I am. It has to be said that I am a navel gazer and love reading self-help books but even with years under my belt it has only just dawned on me that the things I have been fighting are actually my strengths. No not just strengths but true superpowers which make me who I am. I started my business in my early 20’s and am now reaching 16 years in business. I feel so blessed that I was able to jump off the 9-5 train so early. Not only...

Whilst you may only need help with position and attachment to ensure a comfortable latch for good milk transfer, it is important to identify and treat...

I.M. Mum

I.M. Mum My name is Alissa and I mum to the 2 most beautiful little girls: Chloe Melody (4 years going on 14) and Isabella May (9 months and bumshuffeling). Being a mum means everything to me. Apart for the sleepless nights and functioning solely on green tea (my fav) I would say there is not a single thing in the world that could possible be better then getting those smiles and watching them explore the world. Just a couple of weeks back I introduced my (you could say 3rd baby) company Izzy melody to the world and with that I.M. BabyBangle....
