We have teamed up with the lovely Jess and Lauren from Book Reccos on Instagram to give you some cosy, sitting on the sofa with a box of chocolates (next to your locker of course!) book recommendations for the season of luuuurve.
Jess and Lauren have used their library of expertise and popped in books to celebrate all kinds of beautiful, diverse love.
We like to think that being sisters is our special business super power! Working with someone you know inside and out really makes things a whole lot easier. It brings a level of trust that is hard to find in any other relationship, you know each others strengths (and weaknesses) and have a deep understanding of what we each need/want/wish for. We wrote a whole blog post about how our relationship has helped (and sometimes hindered... but mostly helped!) us along the way. As it turns out, we aren't the only ones to have discovered this business 'hack'! There are a number of...
We share ten of our favourite business-y podcasts which have helped us along the way - perfect for a commute (a commute? We've forgotten what that looks like!), when you need something to listen to and focus, or if you want to unwind. Wherever and however you listen to your podcasts, we recommend giving these ones a go!
This week we launched our new, deliciously colourful and delightfully beautiful packs of The Hangers, in 'Summer' and 'Winter'.
We made some moodboards of the products we have been loving ourselves, or that we can definitely see ourselves adding to basket in the near future. If you're riding the rainbow hype just as much as we are, we hope you'll love these!
If you're not in the UK, you may not know that the whole country has been in lockdown for three and a half months. It certainly isn't the end of the road, but this week some of the restrictions were lifted. This means that retail stores are now allowed to open, including some of our lovely stockists who have had their bricks + mortar stores closed all this time!
In this blog we tell you all about our lovely UK stockists who are having their first week back, why we love them + why you should visit as soon as you feel comfortable + we are all allowed to again!
International Women's Day is celebrated every year on 8th March. It is a day to both celebrate the achievements of women all over the world, and also recognise the continuing gender disparity in society and push for social, economic, cultural and political change. As a business owned by two women, International Women's Day felt important for us and we wanted to shout about it! We are choosing to celebrate women in business, our family, friends and wonderful team.
The holidays are creeping ever closer and we have a feeling we aren't the only ones a little panicked about buying gifts this year! We've pulled together 9 goodie baskets filled with gifts from small business to dazzle and delight your most special people!
We're sharing the top 10 business books that have inspired us over the years as we created our brand, Mustard Made. Starting a business is not the easy option. It can feel scary, lonely, frustrating + overwhelming. The good news is that you're never the first to do it! Thankfully there are many trailblazers who have walked the path ahead of you, which is why we gain so much from hearing stories from a few steps ahead (ok, maybe a few miles ahead too!) In these books we've found big shiny bright ideas, comfort + useful guidance, as well as...
There’s no denying it, these days at home are pretty tough. It's hard to stay motivated right now especially when juggling working from home, the big pile of washing, the kids and their school work - all while being pulled in a million directions!Looking after ourselves may seem bottom of the list but as the saying goes: you cannot pour from an empty cup.
Here are a few things that have been helping me get through. Sometimes we have to go back to the basics to help lift us up and energise ourselves whatever we have on our plates!
Here at Mustard we are huge believers in supporting small female owned business. We've been asking ourselves how we can help and contribute to the conversation Black Lives Matter has put firmly at the centre of our minds. We'd like to celebrate some brands and businesses that we love in our own communities that are owned by Women of Colour.
Being a business boss is a brave and wonderful thing, Ladies, we salute you!
