Celebrating Moms this March with Mimi+Martha

There's a lot going on this month celebrating all things womanhood and motherhood, with International Women's Day on 8th March and Mother's Day on the 14th March. And so, we've rounded up some thoughts on mothers, mothering and some gifts and homewares from the collection that we love for moms of all ages/vibes/homes. Martha: Mimi+Martha crept up on us last year and was surely the Universe giving us a push in the right direction. Here we are now, me and my mother, both of us mothers, running a business together. It's funny how these things come about but it is easy to work alongside your best friend! Mostly! I think we both know that what we have going on may be...

Bits & Bobs for Back to School

September has arrived and with it we've taken a look back at a summer to remember, and look forward towards the latter part of a 2020 we couldn't have dreamed up.  Back to School Day 1: This morning, as I followed along after my small human on a scooter, a bit bleary eyed with my home brewed coffee in hand, Mimi and I sent each other photos of the kids from both our houses heading off to school after the longest break the schools have had in either of our memory. The time off has been a challenge, an opportunity, a break, a crossroads, an unexpected stop sign for us all.  Back to School Day 2:  Today I felt less ever so...
