As you know, I am a Next addict, but there’s something else I adore, and that’s indie brands..
Many can be found on Instagram and in fact thats where I found three of them, Instagram is a fantastic place to find anything, from independent jewellery brands to baking shops.
Before I had R, I would sit on Instagram a lot.. the baby group I was on hadn’t moved over to Facebook yet so we had a hashtag, and in the added chaos of people having babies, people were buying from indie brands and I was hooked!
The first thing I ever got was a blanket, a beautiful, interesting blanket from Tobias and the Bear.. this one I know its a big expensive but in the long run, its a beautiful well made blanket.. perfect for when the weather gets just that little bit colder..
Next I discovered Fred and Noah, my goodness they have the most beautiful collection of leggings around, I love they not only have children’s leggings, but have adult leggings! I am going to get myself a pair before winter autumn is done and enjoy them in the best way I can buy sipping hot chocolate!
Mama Designs have the best cellular blankets, I found them on Instagram and I had to get some, I own an orange, yellow and grey large and a small grey and pink, I often sit down and use one as a blanket when it gets a little cold in my flat
and finally, Little Blue Nest, Take a while guess as to why I had to get one of their blankets, they have the most beautiful robin set, duvet covers, swaddle blankets and a cute little comfort blanket and I own them all!! How could I not get my own little Robin them! She has a cuddly toy robin called ‘Bob’ who I will probably write about in future, but if you ask her where ‘Bob’ is, she points at the robins on the blanket!
and there you have it, my favorite indie brands, I can always on the search for more, supporting smaller brands is a great thing to do, more so during Christmas, little indie brands are people at home working hard and being bad ass at their job while being a parent too!
What are your favorite indie brands? are you like me and spend far to long on Instagram looking at pretty things?
Until next time
