FEATURE: Best Gift Ideas For A 2 Year Old - My Tiny Wardrobe Beanies

JUNE EDIT – THE BEST GIFTS FOR A 2-YEAR-OLD

June Edit 2 Year Old Gifts

This month’s Edit is proudly presented by Little Bean Organics. Simply Organic Babywear.


A 1-year-old is a handful. They are now on the move, are pulling everything out of your Tupperware draw every hour and their day sleeps are slowly but surely getting shorter and shorter. By the time a child is 2, they are starting to show more of their personality, you can sometimes reason with them, and they will have strong obsessions for certain books, toys and TV characters!

I am lucky enough to have two boys, both somewhere either side of the 2-year-old age range so I have a little bit of insight into the second birthday event. With a 3-year-old as of next week, we are just finishing with having a “Terrible 2-Year-Old”, and in a blink of an eye my now 16-Month-Old will be 2 and we will be straight back into it! I have seen the age of 2 come and almost go, and I can see it once again on our horizon, and although I am happy one of the boys has made it through, I am excited for our next 2-year-old life experience and the fun we can have with them!

Buying a second birthday present is starting to edge into the really fun age. Most Dad’s like to buy their kids toys that are actually really for them, and most mums are having to start hiding their makeup from the little ladies in their life who just want to copy mum. 2-year-olds have strong likes and dislikes, and they are certainly not shy of telling (screaming at) the world when they don’t like something. Now the test is really on when you give a gift, not just to make the parents happy BUT to also make the toddler happy. Because if you don’t make the birthday person happy, you certainly won’t be invited back for the third birthday!  You need to put some serious thought into a 2-year-old’s birthday present, so read our blog and make sure you retain the title of #thefavouriteaunty.

The Cutest Clothes

Clothes are not only super cute and fun to shop for because who doesn’t want to buy mini-me clothing, but are also practical and something that little ones can really get attached too. Tonight, I am very lucky to be able to include in our Edit the brand new White Long Sleeve Embroidered Frill Sleeve Onesie for girls and the Short Sleeve ‘Shoot For The Moon’ Onesie for boys from the sponsor of this month’s Edit, Little Bean Organics. They have JUST launched these new pieces in collaboration with Hugo and Co, and each onesie comes with a bonus pair of knee high socks.

Equally stunning clothing options include the beautiful Sweety Long Sleeve Tee from Little Bubba, or fun party dresses including the Floral Pretty Little Dress from Love From Iylah or the beautiful Pinafore Dress from Stevie Wanders. Dresses are great for summer or winter gifts, and when the weather is cooling down, add a few layers and some tights and you are warm again!

One tip when buying clothes as the babes get older is sizing does become a little more complicated. If in doubt and you don’t want to ask the parents, just go for a size 3. My oldest was in size 3 from about 2 and a half and kids can always grow but they won’t shrink!

The Best Accessories
White Molly Bow

One fun thing about 2-year-olds is that they slowly stop pulling everything off their heads! A hat is no longer a constant struggle (which from around 9 months to 2 years is extremely frustrating!) and pretty headwear can now be an everyday thing.

For the girls a beautiful bow like the Blush Bow from Rose+Dot Co or the White Molly Bow from Little Bow Co is super fun and will finish an outfit. The absolutely stunning Dusty Pink Beanie from My Tiny Wardrobe is perfect for winter (and in very exciting news they have another 3 new colours to join their existing range of 8 very soon!) and come in mini me and me sized options!

The beautiful crochet bonnets with a vintage feel from Head Spinning Designs are really sweet and keep little heads warm, or for those still lucky enough to be seeing the sun, the Beau Loves Cap with Cat Ears from Eye 4 Kids Fashion is a great unisex cap to keep the sun off!

Whatever headwear you go with, is these are practical options that big and little people will both love!

The Coolest Toys
Tailor Made Tales

A toy will go a long way to get in the good books with little people and keep you up there as #thefavouriteaunty. EVERY time we go anywhere near a shop or I say I have a surprise, my almost 3-year-old always asks about toys. But when thinking about toys, please always go the quality over the quantity route.

The stunning Chime Xylophone from BabyNoise is so classic and will fill a home with beautiful sounds, and the Stacking Rocket from Young Willow is so classic and durable it will be something passed on to siblings or cousins. Sticking with the wooden theme, and although not technically a toy, the amazing bamboo dinner plates from Emondo Kids will ensure meal times are so much fun. I recently bought these for my boys and their plates are always cleared within 5 minutes when they get to eat off Puddles The Platypus or Waldo The Wombat.

Or, go that extra little step and get something personalised. I absolutely love the beautiful books made by Tailor Made Tales. Kim will create a personalised story with your own photos and one of my favourites in the range is the My Daddy and Me Personalised Story. It makes the perfect birthday present and I can see it being a winner come Father’s Day.

The Most Stylish Décor
Pink Kids Rocking Chair

I could talk for hours on décor, and a 2-year-old’s room is starting to go through an overhaul from nursery to kid’s bedroom which is so much fun to decorate. The walls can be updated with decals, like the Safari Large Scene Kids Cartoon Decal from Red Pandal Wall Stickers, or with adding one of the lovely Dream Big Scrabble Art Frames from Love Letter Frame Co. The stuffed toys on the shelves are on the way out, and the Black Hanging Robot from Izzy and Pea is a cool boy’s bedroom accessory, and as a mum of two boys I can tell you fun boys décor is hard to find!

A bed is generally not far off being introduced to replace a cot, and with that comes time for a linen overhaul. For those with starfish wiggly sleepers, the BedZee Toddler Blanket is a great way of keeping the covers on overnight with their amazing velcro & zip combos. Or, for those just adding some extra pretty accessories, why not grab one of the brand-new pillow cases from The Young Co. Tamara has only JUST introduced standard sized pillow cases to her range in similar fabric to the cot sheets everyone has already fallen in love with, and I can see these pillow cases won’t be limited to the kids. I am trying to work out which pattern goes best for my bed already!

Lastly, but definitely not least, a beautiful gift that will be used for years to come is the Children’s Rocking Chair from Hobbe. Every little person wants a seat that is just for them, and when it is just so beautiful it will certainly be loved. We are lucky enough to have my Father in Laws rocking chair from when he was a child, that my husband has memories sitting in, and now my boys love to play in. While sadly it isn’t a Hobbe (but we do have a Hobbe rocker that I fit in and LOVE), it just shows a gift like this won’t be forgotten come Christmas.

The Most Luxurious Gifts for Mum
Amelia Kate Family Photography

As we start to hit the 2-year-old mark it really is becoming less about mum, BUT I still think something the whole family can enjoy is a great idea. Last year we did a family photo shoot and it was so nice to have some new photos with us and all with our extended family, and I felt much more comfortable carrying almost no “baby weight” in comparison to all those loved up newborn shots. For those of you in Perth, make sure you check out Amelia Kate Photography. She does amazing photos and I love all her candid shots like the one above!

When they hit 2, kids really are starting to become interested in the present and not just the wrapping paper. Their communication skills are really kicking in, they make it quite clear what they do and don’t like and their faces don’t lie. If they don’t like your present or find it boring you will see the second they tear off the wrapping paper. When you are stuck for what to buy, take some advice from someone in the know to get a bit of a head start on buying the best gift, and to make sure you are #thefavouriteaunty.

FEATURE: Fast Five Questions with Amy From My Tiny Wardrobe

Posted on April 01, 2017 by Amy Goller | 0 comments

This Article Was FEATURED about My Tiny Wardrobe - THE BRAND. How Amy Started a Successful Small Business Start Up Company from Nothing and turned it into a Full Time Job! Featured on the 20/3/17 with the gorgeous lovelies behind the brand:

@debonairanddarling

Fast Five with Amy from @mytinywardrobesydney...

Fast Five with Amy from @mytinywardrobesydney...

Well here we are guys, with our first 'Fast five' of the 2017. Over here at Debonair and Darling, we LOVE our biz mums. The one's hustling late into the night, often into the early hours of the morning. The one's juggling #MumLife and #BizLife, leaving the rest of us wondering, 'I don't know how she does it!?', and that's why we love to shine a little spotlight on them, to share the love! This week, we are chatting with the fabulous Amy from 'My Tiny Wardrobe' or @mytinywardrobesydney on Insta. She's a HUGE mum biz supporter herself, often taking the time to shoutout to, or show some love to others, so we thought, it's time to shine some light on her. So sit back, and enjoy, this is one you don't wanna miss! Kirsty xx

 

 

1. How did ‘My Tiny Wardrobe' come about? What was the inspiration behind starting your own business? 
My Tiny Wardrobe started as ‘motherhood’ changed me. I wanted to be with my girls and watch them grow & not leave them to return to Full Time Work. And lets face it, once you have two babies under 2 running around, my day to day attire was pyjamas. Couldn’t go back to the city in PJ’s (Wink Wink)
My dream for My Tiny Wardrobe is to use the business to encourage other mums to work from home if they can, and provide them with a platform to sell their designs. I am currently collaborating with women designers who are raising children in Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. It is a collection of working mummy designers, photographers, and suppliers, all woven together to empower women through small business.
I was inspired by my 2 girls, and the realisation when they were born that life is too short to not chase your dreams! And I wanted to show my children that anything is possible. I’m not going to sugar coat it and say it was easy. Before launching my business I didn’t even have a personal Instagram page! Seriously, I thought Facebook was “trending”. I had no idea. What a learning curve I have loved riding the wave of. 
If you LOVE Photography or Love Marketing or you LOVE TO DESIGN, SEW, PRINT, STITCH and would love to do that while your little ones play under your desk at home, it's possible. In creating this brand, I stepped out of the corporate world to design a future for myself and my family, and other mums who would join this collection of creatives, all working from home!


2. How do you juggle #MumLife AND running a business? Like when the whole family is sick, and you just don’t feel like getting on with it, what helps you to do that?
I can’t say I juggle it with ease. NO. It is hard. But it is also wonderful.
I Plan Ahead.
I ask for help if I need to work.
I work hard while the girls nap or late at night.
I unleash my stress and my sometimes inability to juggle both kids and work by talking it out. I talk to Biz mums I’ve met on Instagram & they encourage me. I ask my hubby and he reassures me. 
I stop somedays and prioritise the girls. 
Other days I plan whether would need to encourage independent play so I can work a little while they are still near me.


3. If you could collaborate with anyone in the industry, who would it be? So, what's your dream collaboration?
I would want to collaborate with Minty Magazine and write a piece on Fashion and Biz Mums Supporting Mums and other Biz Mums in the industry.

4. What are you top 3, most important things in life? 
1. Health 
I have suffered with a Muscle Disease for 15 years now. It can be so debilitating and has caused me to suffer not only pain but anxiety. I sometimes survive a day, instead of living the day. I WON’T LET THAT DEFINE ME THOUGH. I have always said “Your health is your Wealth!”. How can you look after a business and children if you don’t have your health and fill your happiness cup to the brim. MUMS I AM TALKING TO YOU, It is NOT selfish to put yourself FIRST sometimes. When you feel energised and happy, your children will benefit. 
 
2. Family
My Family is my world. I could not imagine life without them. OK, some days, the children push my buttons so hard, that I play hide and seek just to hide somewhere tricky and get a break hahahaha. But at the end of the day, they are my people!
 
3. Kindness
Just that. To be kind. A smile to a stranger could change there whole day. Asking someone “How are You” might just allow them to unload a worry they have. BE KIND. GIVE BACK. LOVE IS IN THE DETAILS.


5. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take ONE person with you, and ONE item, who would you take, and what would you bring?
Oh this is easy! I’d take Tom Hanks & he would bring Wilson. Lets face it, he knows how to get an island. As after a while, I would need to get off that island and come home to my loves!

Meet The Maker

Hi! Im Amy! 36 & married to my best friend! When he gets up in the middle of the night to feed our little Olivia or hug her when she is teething, his status rises from best friend to SAINT! But believe me, there are other times when I feel like I actually have three children, he is the third. When I started the business I had 2 children under two. Double trouble? Yes! But definitely more than a double blessing. 

My Tiny Wardrobe Handmade Clothing Childrens Brand

Business Details

My dream for My Tiny Wardrobe is to use the business to encourage other mums to work from home if they can and want to, and provide them with a platform to sell their designs. I am currently collaborating with women designers who are raising children in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Indonesia. It is a collection of working mummy designers, photographers, and suppliers, all woven together to empower women through small business. 

Life is Too Short Not To Chase Your Dreams.

Yes, I am speaking to you, the one who is reading this blog. I feel that @mytinywardrobesydney (insert hyperlink) with the support of other women might lead to some mums setting aside their stilettos if they choose and continue to pursue their dreams of working from home. I want YOU to email me, Facebook me, Instagram me, tweet me (joking, I don't do twitter). Seriously before I launched this business I thought Facebook was “trending”. I had no idea. What a learning curve I have loved riding the wave of. 

If you love photography or love marketing or you LOVE TO DESIGN, SEW, PRINT, STITCH and would love to do that while your little ones 'play' under your desk at home, it's possible. In creating this brand, I stepped out of the corporate world to design a future for myself and my family, and other mums who would join this collection of creatives, all working from home! 

I design clothes for “All the places they'll go and adventures they'll have”.
I want babies to be snuggled up safe in my baby blankets and hold onto them as they grow up. I want to see little ones running up and down Bronte Beach to the tip of Cape York in swimming costumes designed by indigenous women highlighting indigenous prints. I want to see boys (and girls) skating, wrestling, and laughing, in comfy, casual, yet edgy and unique clothes. I want little girls to feel like Princesses, but feel free to run in the mud at the same time. 

My Tiny Wardrobe is here to clothe our bubs, inspire creativity, fuel imagination, hear from real mums, resource our mums through fortnightly blogs, and empower women to dream, and take action. The majority of our products are made by mums, for mums, in Australia - with LOVE! 

How do I cope with the juggle? 

Having launched my business while my premie baby was in the NICU, I am not sure if I always cope.  But I think that is normal. Being a stay at home working mum is a challenge. You usually are “at work” all day long. No paid sick days and no paid annual leave. I try and do most of my work after 7pm when they are tucked in or when they have their sleep in the middle of the day. However, many times I find myself trying to reply to emails in the playground, take calls while also trying to play tea parties and look at fabric combinations while also trying to feed my little one. Its a juggle. I think as long as you are not glued to your mobile or Mac, and you are present when they are awake for the majority of the time, you are doing well. Actually you are doing GREAT! There are many days where I have had to use the TV as a parent. BAD? I don't think so, as I'm not a superhero, I'm one up from that, I am a mum. And there is no more important job. I take that very seriously. But if that means a few hours of screen time to keep my sanity, so be it. I ain't judging. Great mums always try their best.

I won't sugar coat it and say it's easy establishing a successful small business, with a budget, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  My obstacles in launching this business did not stem from just having a premie baby, with her gorgeous big sister Chloe at my side or rather trying to climb me like a monkey for extra attention. I have been fighting  a muscle disease over the last 14 years called fibromyalgia. Instead of letting this chronic painful disease define me, I have let the journey with it REFINE me.  I have grown into a strong woman with a passion for joy, adventure, laughter and fun. Some days it wins but this year I am going to work smarter and focus on ME, my family (and my business). Yes, I believe it's possible. 

Its taken me a year to realise that you can grow a business at any pace you like. At first it was a marathon effort, little sleep, constant hustling, little sleep, so much work, no sleep, more hustling, IG learning etc etc. But this came at a cost to my health and my family. So in year two of the business (2017) I plan to work smarter. HOW you ask? Ask other mums for advice, you don't need to research everything alone. Some mums are more than willing to share industry contacts, tell you what loops/markets are great and why. What hashtags are trending. Just take a chance and ask. What do you have to lose?

Also, as long as you are moving forward with your strategy and vision then you are creating growth. It doesn't need to be all work and no play. Your business will still be there next week/next year if you take some time out. Life gets busy and somethings have to give, so remember it's not all or nothing.

Best organisational tip to other working mums? 

If you have the energy on a Sunday night, plan out the week. Have a list of actionable items and plan the week accordingly; including social media, urgent emails, phone calls, meetings, daycare, sleep times and think what you can get done and on which day/s. Otherwise a week of work can appear insurmountable on a Sunday night after a big weekend and the last thing we need is extra stress on a Monday morning. 

Greatest Advice: Focus on the Good. In the world of small business, there is a lot of “COPYING” happening & has come into the spotlight recently ten fold. I have seen it with my own eyes. I have heard about it happening more than monthly from fellow biz mums, I have seen tears and heard sad stories. I have seen anger and I have read comments. BUT, WHAT I CAN OFFER IS THIS:

If YOU have been copied, its distressing. My personality is to let that person know. Sometimes they may know they have copied you & other times they may not. So what I would also say is: If it is very obvious and they have ordered from you and then copied, or even if you feel concerned & can't move on, release that stress you feel and send them an email or a DM. Resentment is not worth it and your health is your wealth, so say something and try and move on or resolve the issue with the other 'maker'. At the end of the day, you just have to be the best you can be and as hard as this is to write, take it as a compliment that you are so amazing and original, people want to replicate your ideas. This sounds easier said than done, I know as this has happened to me, so easier said than done. 

What I have learned about Social Media

Before I started my business I never had a personal IG account. NOPE. I knew nothing. Hashtag #whatsahashtag ? So I have learnt soooooo much and feel confident that it is a great selling platform for business when used well. 

1: It is not all about the number of followers that you have. Facebook Or Instagram. You can have 40,000 'followers' and only 1000 'Supporters', who want to engage with you & buy your brand. So don't spend too much money worrying about numbers. Think more about how you can be seen and engage with your 'Supporters'.

2. WHAT IS CONTENT MARKETING? This is essential when trying to connect with your audience. Is your content informing or inspiring your audience? No matter if you are blogging, creating FB Live Videos, or posting great images on Instagram you should aim to be doing at least one of these two things 80% of the time. In doing this your audience will connect with you more. Why? Because many people like to have that “know, like, trust” connection with a brand. And at the end of the day once they have that, it will be easier for you to make a sale (with less selling).

3. LOCATION? I have always thought the location of a post was important. For these two reasons: firstly, you can meet other mumma makers in your area and stores that may want to stock your brand. But also, just like we have trending hashtags, there surely are trending locations. THINK….. Where would your audience be hanging out? If they are mums: parks, carnivals, local swimming pools, kids pools etc. So if they ever search that location, they may also find your swimwear label if you are always at “Bondi kids Pool” for example. BOOM, a possible new follower or a sale.

4. HASHTAGS. What hashtags are trending? Ok, so this is a bit more difficult and I am a strong believer you need to keep working on hashtags and see how they rate. But again, what hashtags are your audience using? If you sell a health food item, is it gluten free? If so, there are so many hashtags that relates to gluten and coeliacs disease, so use those. General hashtags like #healthy #yum are not going to get you seen. They are too general. And as so many people globally are using these your photo will be lost under that hashtag in less than 3 seconds, so you wasted one of your hashtags..

….. and the list goes on and on but I think these are important points to think about…. 

 

Lastly, and most importantly:

 

“Empowered Women, Empower Women”…. 

               AND

             “Mums Supporting Mums” will always lead to greater success for everyone. 

Complete, don't compete. 

All my love,

Amy xxx

 

I love working with other mums!

FEATURED: My Tiny Wardrobe on How To be a MumBoss Successfully

Posted on July 25, 2016 by Amy Goller | 0 comments

MY 3 SUCCESS SECRETS ON HOW TO HUSTLE LIKE A MUMBOSS

Success secrets

SUCCESS SECRETS

It's damn hard starting and growing a biz but it is worth it. It seriously saddens me though to know that more than 60 percent of small businesses cease operating within the first three years of starting.

​I don't want that to be your story. So I'm sharing My 3 Success Secrets on How to Hustle like a MumBoss right here in this blog post.

If I had the opportunity to take you out for coffee and cake, this is what I'd want to tell you:

You Need to Start Growing Your Email List

You Need to Get Comfortable Collaborating

AND

You Have to Surround Yourself with People Who “GET YOU”

success secrets

1. YOU NEED TO GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST

Email marketing needs to be in your marketing tool kit!

From day MINUS 1 I started growing my email list.

Yep. I said MINUS 1 because we didn't even have a website yet.

I had a very simple landing page (one page website) with our mock-up logo, a countdown timer (counting backwards to our launch date), a small paragraph about what Mums With Hustle was going to be and a single box for people to enter in their email address to stay connected with me and learn more! I didn't even have a freebie to give them in exchange for their email address but it didn't matter. We had over 100 people sign up in a very short amount of time just off the description of what we were about. That was incredibly validating and motivating. Not to mention, it kept us accountable!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • Email is more personal - it doesn’t replace your social media connection with your community, it compliments it. I enjoy subscribing to my favourite online businesses and blogs. Staying more connected with them makes me feel valued by them.
  • Email doesn’t go away and algortithms don't change- unlike social media platforms can (remember MySpace? - GONE). Social media is AH-MAZE but it is rented ground.
  • Email helps you stay at ‘front of mind’ - stay on their radar. Social media posts can get lost if people are following hundreds or thousands of accounts, or if they aren’t checking their account regularly. You can go without being seen regardless of how awesome your content is.
  • Email helps promote repeat customers/readers - because you have a relationship with your community beyond their initial purchase. You can provide deals or exclusive content just for them (like I do).
  • When you launch a new product or area of your business, you instantly have a community of people who understand your WHY and who want to be a part of it.

If you'd like to learn more about email marketing and how it can grow your biz, you can take my FREE "Build Your Tribe With Email" Ecourse. It's written by me, for you, and it's got all the stuff inside that I wish someone told me when I was starting out 😊.

Success Secrets

2. YOU NEED TO GET COMFORTABLE COLLABORATING

Why collab?

When we collaborate with others we open ourselves up to getting in front of a brand new audience. It should be the audience that you want (your ideal customer or those you can work with to grow your brand) but maybe you just haven’t had the chance to get in front of them yet. This is why it’s SO important to know your ideal client in as much depth as you can. You need to know what their interests are, what blogs they are reading, what social media accounts they are following, what pains they have and what makes them tick!

When you know where your customer is you can start to think about HOW you are going to get in front of them.

WHEN IT COMES TO COLLAB PARTNERSHIPS REMEMBER THESE 5 THINGS:
  • Does the brand hold your audience?
  • Will working with this brand serve both of your audience's?
  • Do you know, like and trust what their core biz is about?
  • Keep an open mind - you should never judge someone's success based purely on their social media following. We're not playing tit for tat here!
  • Your strengths might be their weaknesses and vice versa! That's a great thing!

I know lots of bizmums struggle with how to connect and collaborate with confidence on Instagram and online in general, so I have a podcast episode that is just for you. In this episode I share my confidence tips and strategies that have helped me connect authentically with great influencers and brands. I’ve also got an awesome freebie for you and that is "My 17 easy ways to connect with bloggers, businesses and social media influencers".

SUCCESS SECRETS

3. YOU NEED TO SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO “GET YOU”

So this one is HUGE.

You are the company you keep - ain't that the truth!

A long time ago I read something that was along the lines of “You will become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”.

Oh damn! Truth be told, most people (even those we love and cherish) are negative Nancy's. I guess it's us as entrepreneurs that choose to walk the unmapped path. Our collegues, friends, parents, siblings and sometimes even our life partners don't “get us”.

We THINK DIFFERENT. Pretty sure that's Apple's motto but hey, Steve Jobs was a kick-ass entrepreneur, right!

But seriously, as entrepreneurs we DO think differently. It's in our blood to think outside the square, to not settle for what society considers “normal” or “fulfilling”. We want more, we dream big, we challenge the status quo. With that comes the challenge of finding people who do “get you”. If you're not able to get to face-to-face meet ups then online connections are super powerful too!

Here are my lucky 7 bizmums who I look up to for various reasons. I've had the pleasure of meeting more than a few in person too!

MOTIVATION AND INFECTIOUS POSITIVITY:

Sara Sheedy - Sara Sheedy is one powerhouse of optimism. She oozes energy, self-belief and 100% practices everything she preaches. Sara is a creative trainer within the leadership and management space BUT she is also a speaker and group learning facilitator. I've had the pleasure of getting Sara in to speak at one of our Mums With Hustle Luncheons and this girl knows how to unlock potential and purpose!

KNOWLEDGE AND ACCOUNTABILITY:

Business School For Mums - Anna Jonak and Florencia Pike are serious hustlers! They have extensive business, marketing and coaching experience behind them and I know for a fact that they’ve got the goods because they’ve created an AMAZING business for themselves, that allows them to serve biz mums just like you and I. Business School For Mums is a one stop shop where you can learn about business, marketing and strategy AND it's made for MUMS!

One Small Step Coaching - Lanna Hill is one smart cookie! Through her biz, she offers a range of services including one-on-one business coaching, business plans and bespoke strategies - all with a difference. She is also a super passionate speaker who loves to educate through engaging workshops. Lanna is based in Perth but her biz is all online too, so don't let distance be a reason not to tap into her wisdom.

GRATITUDE AND GRACE:

Yoga Mamas - Andrea Broadbear and Kate Payne are a serious force in the pre and postnatal Yoga space. They serve an online audience of busy mamas, not just with Yoga but with their mindset and wisdom.

My Tiny Wardrobe - Amy Goller is a designer of children's fashion and accessories, maker and online biz owner. She's also a passionate blogger who uses her platform to empower, uplift and support mothers. Collaboration is something Amy excels at!

HUSTLE AND INSPIRATION:

Kid Magazine - Sara Keli is one experienced, savvy bizmum who knows how to get stuff done! She is the owner and editor of her FREE online parenting mag for Mums, Kid Magazine. This babe has literally created her own dream by sheer hustle, commitment to learning, creativity and a willingness to collaborate with others.

Dotti Media - Angela Ponsford and Miranda Ivey are two roller-derby hustlers helping entrepreneurs understand social media and online marketing. Dotti Media has helped hundreds of business owners large and small throughout Australia and internationally to get the results they really want. These straight up chics are my go-to for all things Facebook!

So, there you have it -

New brand: My Tiny Wardrobe

By   Sunday, September 27, 2015 

With so many brands selling baby and children’s clothes, it can be hard to know where to shop and what to buy, so it’s a breath of fresh air to find a store that stocks original and gorgeous products, and empowers mothers along the way.

My Tiny Wardrobe is an Australian online store that supports other mums by collaborating with up-and-coming designers who are also raising children, or who love children’s fashion.

More than half of their stock is handmade by mothers working from home – how wonderful is that? Giving women who are creative and talented – and who also happen to be mothers – a platform to sell their creations is such a wonderful idea. Women empowering women. Mums empowering mums. I love it!

Owned and operated by mother of two (under 2!) Amy Iles, My Tiny Wardrobe stock beautiful and original babies and children’s designer clothing, blankets, accessories and sleepwear, from newborn to size 4.

They have a great range of baby onesies, baby moccasins, tutus, beautiful soft cotton baby blankets and lots more, as well as my favourites – the cutest baby bloomers you’ve ever seen.

The gorgeous organic cotton blankets in a range of colours for baby boys and girls are so soft – perfect for the cot, as a travel blanket in the car or in the pram. They have even been spotted on the newborn twin daughters (Evie and Aria) of nutritionist and trainer Sophie Guidolin.blanket taupe

Of her new venture, Amy says: “My Tiny Wardrobe is here to clothe our bubs, inspire creativity, fuel imagination, hear from real mums through the blogs to come, resource our mums, and empower women to dream, and take action.”
