Robyn Swain Photography’s Start Up Story

I’m kicking off this year’s Start Up Story feature with someone you might be familiar with if you read my blog last year. Robyn has collaborated with me on lots of projects for CWSR doing photography shoots for me. I was so nervous in front of the camera before our first shoot but Robyn is so good at her job and super friendly that I felt at ease as soon as we got started. It’s…

Why I’m shutting up shop

For the last four and a bit years I’ve been running my own business separate to this blog, an online store selling children’s accessories and gifts. You can read all about how I set it up and the story behind it in my Little and Fierce Start Up Story I know a lot of you are familiar with it and many have even bought from it. That’s what makes this next bit so hard, the…

New Year, Same Me

You know that phrase, New Year, New Me?  Yeah. I’m not really a fan of that kind of sentiment.   It’s rather crazy to think that we’ll wake up changed or that somehow everything we haven’t managed in the last 30 odd years we will miraculously do, or even be, next year. This New Year craziness includes physical self improvement like dieting. Aiming to get into that pair of pre-child birth jeans that have been…

Make sense? When you work for yourself motivation can be…

My Start Up Story of Little and Fierce Kids

As you know my Start Up Stories feature has been going strong for a couple of years now and I’ve had the joy of sharing the businesses of fellow parents living the Start Up Life. While planning in the next few months of interviews I realised that I hadn’t really shared my own story of my business Little and Fierce! Some of you may know about my store while newer readers may not have read…

Paper Joy’s Start Up Story with discount code and free printable

Stories like this one remind me just how much I love social media and what fantastic opportunities it has brought into my life. I discovered this month’s business, Paper Joy, through Instagram and became a huge fan straight away. The rainbow colours, unicorns and mermaids prints are mine.. I mean.. my youngest daughter’s favourites, but to be honest all of Kerry’s work is so bright and positive that it’s actually hard to pin point which…
