Our Wee Bit of Wonderful blog series is back this week with another great little Indie Business owner who works in the baby market (but with added extra treats for mums too!). It's a great pleasure to introduce you to Gemma from LittleLily ... take it away!
I am Gemma Kerr owner of LittleLily. Based in Berkshire, LittleLily specialises in "Small Luxuries for Busy Mums".
At LittleLily we believe that Mums deserve beautiful things as well as
Baby. We specialise in Stylish Teething Jewellery that is Beautiful for Mama and soothing and tactile for Bubba alongside Gorgeous Headbands in modern prints for Baby, Big sister and Mama and lot's of beautiful gifts for New or expectant Mums.
I have worked in the Luxury Fashion industry for 8 years, since finishing my Fashion degree. Most recently for Jenny Packham, focusing on Bridal I was constantly surrounded with beautiful, sparkly things. But after the birth of my second child, I decieded that I wanted to stop the daily commute and spend more time at home with my babies, and so LittleLily began.
I am a sucker for beautiful jewellery, mainly chunky costume jewellery but as my little cherubs got stronger and stronger my necklaces were going down like flies. Then I discovered the benefits of teething jewellery. I found that they were a perfect distraction to keep babies entertained and a perfect soother for teething gums. You can also put them in the fridge for especially bad days! When my eldest child’s
teething was at it’s worst I really struggled to find anything that I liked, particularly UK based. I wanted modern and trendy pieces that made me feel like me again (not just Mummy). Since then LittleLily has evolved into a one stop shop for Mum and Baby, specialising in beautiful, modern pieces for Mum, Baby or Big Sister.
