Join milknfizz on Wednesday 24th April from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at Bill’s Restaurant in St Albans for an evening of great chat, great food and amazing women!
I’m excited that we have not one, but two very talented ladies…
Introducing Laura Williams, founder of The Modern Nursery & Gemma Metcalfe-Beckers, founder of Mutha Hood. Both have taken Instagram by STORM and set up very successful online businesses by documenting the juggling act of building their business and surviving motherhood at the same time. Something which many of us can relate to and the reason why they have become so successful at what they do.
Gemma is the founder of Mutha Hood and the Strong Girls Club; more than just words on a tee she has built a community on Instagram with a following of over 80,000 in just over 2.5 years.
She’s a hugely inspiring Mum of two glorious girls (her Reds) who creates merch that aims to empower and celebrate women.
With a career in Fashion Buying, pre-baby raising, Gemma is obsessed with garment quality and fit. That’s why you can rest assured that anything you buy from this shop has been researched, considered and cared for to the highest of standards.
If you follow Gemma on Instagram you will know she is a massive fan of Stories, llamas and pom poms and will talk all things empowerment, how motherhood has shaped her Mutha Hood, as well as how to build a brand through the power of IG.
She is a firm supporter of ‘Small Biz Club’ so come and throw some questions her way about how to build that brand connection with your following
Laura has gone from British Fashion Giant Burberry, to bringing up babies and building a successful business in three years. Founded in late 2015, The Modern Nursery is an online social hub of all things modern and chic for your Nursery. Aimed at contemporary Mum’s with newborns, toddlers and children up to age 5.
In a short time, the business has gained a strong following on Instagram (115K), Facebook (18K) and a mailing list of 15K, largely due to the lifestyle focus on Laura and her daughters.
Laura founded The Modern Nursery when she was pregnant with her first daughter, and struggled to find contemporary items for her nursery that fitted with her style, an ex East London girl with a love for Scandinavian interiors. She had a vision that all nurseries would be modern spaces with beautiful, hand picked contemporary items fitting with the rest of your home, but the reality of what the high street offers is very different: pink, blue or beige.
Laura wanted to build an online store that offered something fresh and unique, with exceptional service. Through research, she came across talented, creative brands from all around the world, and The Modern Nursery was born.
