My mission in business is to champion women in business. So, it makes sense that one of the best ways to do this is to SHOP with those incredible creators, makers and entrepreneurs. This year, I’ve asked my beautiful clients to showcase their goods.
It’s not been the best year for small business so it’s even more important than ever before to support small anywhere I can!
Without further ado, here is my Christmas Gift Guide.
