Creating a Colourful Range of Children’s and Baby Clothes.

It seems I am always surrounded by colour swatches and material but I guess that’s part of the job. Planning the new season’s colours usually starts 6 months before the season actually arrives.

Let’s Talk About Slicks!

If you’ve read some of my other blogs you will know that I am a firm believer in getting kids outside away from TV’s and computers. Despite loving technology myself and using it to run an online business I can’t wait to get away from the screens at the end of the day. I think it’s really important for every member of the family to get outside, Explore & play together as much as possible. No child will ever remember their greatest Xbox day but they will remember days out.

Australian Made, why does it really matter?

Small Australian towns remind me of how it was growing up in the UK in the 70’s and that’s a compliment. I spent some time in beautiful Albany WA when I first arrived here & like my home town Albany has a shop for everything and everyone seemed to be in business.

Keeping your children healthy & active in these days of iPads and X-boxes can be a bit of hard work. Mums & Dads are finding it hard too, especially after a hard day at work it’s all too easy just to crash in front of the TV. Now winter is here & it’s damp, wet and cold it can be even harder especially at weekends and there’s nothing worse than a home full of little explorers with cabin fever that are desperate to play.

Being a Doula. What it means to me.

During my 10 years as a Birth Doula, I have supported many different kinds of births and each and every one has been an incredible journey in its own right; for me, and for my birthing families. I have laughed, I have cried, I have soothed deep-seated fears and I have empowered.

So, what is a doula and how did I become one?

My interest in childbirth began after the wonderful natural births of my first three children. After my second child started at school I felt I was ready to begin something just for me. To find something to fill my time with; to find myself again. To pursue a career doing something I felt would make a difference.

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!

So how exactly did I get here? Mum to 4 great kids, Managing Director of our company and crazier half to James, our Creative Director/Photographer/International Client Liaison Officer/Music Aficionado/Chief Coffee Maker/Resident Funny-man. Lots of life experience would probably be the most obvious answer! I consider myself a Jack Jill of all trades, and master of none! I’m good at lots of things. I pick up stuff easily and I thrive on a challenge. I like to be busy, I like to keep my mind active and I like to learn new skills.
