I started my business in 2011 as a new mum. I was looking online for prints for my little girl Zoey and couldn't find what I was after so designed a few of my own because I wanted something different and unique to what was already on offer. I then started giving them to friends as gifts which were a big hit and now I am sharing my unique designs with you. What started as a hobby and experiment has since blossomed into a successful small business.
Why did you choose your business name?
The reasons behind why I named my business May and Belle hasn't been revealed to date… but stay tuned, all will be revealed in the coming months ;)
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?
What I have enjoyed about running my own business so far is the flexibility it gives me with being a mum. I choose my own hours and work around my home life and day care. I have also really enjoyed meeting lots of other fabulous work-from-home mums and am highly impressed with the professionalism and service that I have received from the purchases I have made through some great businesses online.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?
A couple of major highlights in my business have been taking on some fabulous and very supportive stockists in the short time that I have been in business. I also recently had my first magazine feature in Shop Til You Drop which was very exciting. On a personal note, I now have a gorgeous and sweet little girl in my life and another bubs on the way whom I can't wait to meet!
What inspires or motivates you?
A big part of my inspiration and motivation is the support of family and friends and also all of the lovely feedback and reviews I receive online from fans and customers of mine.
and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business..
I LOVE plants, gardening and home improvement projects. I also love living so close to the beach and being able to walk down there whenever I like – it's soothing to the soul x
