Every Saturday I am featuring a different small business, getting to know a little more about the business and the people behind the brands! This week I interview the lovely Rosie from Bubbuh
I hope that by reading this interview you may find another small business to support or if you're interested in maybe starting your own business, you may find some inspiration here too...
Hi, I’m Rosie the mind & mama behind Bubbuh. We offer unique, modern and ethical chilrenswear clothing and toys, all handpicked by myself. All clothing is Organic cotton or bamboo and the brands we work with are also fellow independents, we’re about bringing you quality, ethical products for your little Bubbuh’s and supporting fellow small businesses.
Can you tell us a fun fact about youself?
I once flew to Australia for a work trip for 3 days and survived with no jet lag!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV, mainly ones that are associated with dating, Love Island, Dinner Date, Celebs go dating, love a bit of cheesy tele!
Oh and giant chocolate buttons, a pregnancy craving that never went away!
What makes your business a little different from the rest?
All the brands we work with are fellow small businesses, so we try to support independents by bringing them under one shop. As well as this, all the products are ethically made to a high quality so, we can assure they will last wash after wash.
We like to think the products we sell will get handed down to younger siblings, friends, cousins, nieces/nephews. We try and promote a ‘Buy Less, Buy Better’ mantra as we know how damaging the clothing industry is to our planet so, we want to do our bit to encourage people to try & think more about where their clothes / children’s clothes are coming from.
What TV show could you happily lose a day bingeing on?
I know Nikki @ Rose and Guy said this in last weeks interview, but FRIENDS all the way!! Such a classic and an easy watch, just love all the characters Rachel being a firm fave!
What is an absolute non-negotiable in your day?
A shower first thing in the morning and my Liz Earle face cleansing routine, I can’t start my day until I have done both these things – even sitting at home during lockdown!
Tell us one thing about your business that you are most proud of?
Running Bubbuh online and doing events (prior COVID) on the side of my very busy & demanding full time job as a Fashion Buyer, amongst commuting to London from Sussex and regular travel in and outside the UK. Now juggling our new addition to the family, Luna-Vallis and all that comes with becoming a new mum!
What topic would you speak about if you were asked to give a TED talk on something outside of your main area of expertise?
