I’ve been incredibly quiet on the blog for the last few weeks and while I’ve been itching to put pen to paper of loads of exciting posts, I’ve been hard at work on something I am so thrilled to share with you. It’s been a few months of very hard work, late nights and lots of learning (and a good few delays thanks to Eskom’s seemingly endless load shedding) but, the day has finally come, and I can finally push publish on my very own online store – Lulubean’s Boutique!
I’ve been running my blog for 3.5 years now and often I get asked advice from friends and readers on where they can buy X or what I would recommend for Y and so the idea for my online store started growing. The store stocks my “tried and tested favourites for moms and minis” although you definitely don’t need to be a mom to enjoy all of the gorgeous products available. But the store only stocks products and brands that I have personally reviewed, used and enjoyed on a daily basis. I am also a huge fan of supporting small businesses and so the majority of the brands I have partnered with, are local South African SMEs.
I’ve put a lot of thought into the products I’m stocking and on the baby front, you can shop all of my essentials. These are the things that for me were (and still are) key in helping me navigate my way through the early days of motherhood to transitioning to toddler life. Just a few of the things you’ll be able to find here are Petit Bunny Babeshades, Ubuntu Baba carriers, Lily n Jack Snuggle Bunnies, Jean Kelly Nappy Bags and Trendlings bibs. You can also read all of the reviews I’ve written on these products for more details on why I love them.
And for the ladies, you can shop the most beautiful range of Signature by Des sleep wear that will have you sleeping like a baby while looking oh so gorgeous! Two of the ranges are exclusive to Lulubean’s Boutique so get shopping as stocks are limited! Another one of my favourite brands that I am so excited to be stocking is Cowshed beauty products. You can shop their Knackered and Gorgeous Cow ranges as well as both mother and baby ranges. And because I want to keep things exciting, I have a few more amazing brands that I will be launching in the next few weeks, so make sure you are following my Instagram page for all the updates (and don’t forget to let your friends know too) 😊
Lastly, I have put together a range of gorgeous gift hampers that take the stress out of finding the perfect gift for your best friend, mom, new mom or newborn baby. My gift hampers are beautifully wrapped, and you can include a hand written message to make that special someone feel extra special!
I am so exited to finally share my new venture with you all! I have loved building relationships with these amazing brands, learning new skills and creating something that I am so proud of. It is something that means so much to me and I would love to hear your feedback so please leave me a comment below – and if you love it, please share it with your friends, family and colleagues 😊 As with all new things, there will always be a few teething problems so please let me know if you spot anything that is not working correctly and we will get on it as soon as possible.
