Mush: The app to help you find mum friends

Can a Tinder-like app for mums really help find new friends? Mush says yes. It's the new app founded by Katie Massie-Taylor and Sarah Hesz that will help you connect with local mums with kids the same age as yours. If you're used to doing everything else with your smartphone (like working out how to solve night-terrors, looking up weaning recipes and free-shopping on Pinterest) then why not use it to connect...

Grace Woodward And The Graceful Goddess

When you mention Grace Woodward to fashion people, the response I often hear is "OOH, I love her." Grace is the kind of strong, stylish mum whose name is synonymous with guts, style, grit and honest determination - all traits I could do well to draw from at least once or twice a week. Grace is renowned for being a stylist by trade, but she is also a survivor and...

Amelia Gregory: Illustrated Lady

Fellow magazine hoarders will remember beautiful, collectible Amelia's Magazine well. One of her early notebooks is still on my desk, so it is a delight to finally have a reason to interview Amelia Gregory, now a mum of two little peaches. Amelia has moved on from publishing her illustration-rich print magazine to her website, books and a new book; Amelia's Colourful Colouring Companion: Adult Coloring Book. She's funding this latest...

Fount London Nursery and Life Space, Hackney

Fount London is the kind of nursery you wish was around every corner. Sweet, considered and engaging for kids, it has only just opened for business in Westgate Road in Hackney - right opposite the Netil market. Nestled under railway arches, alongside a pop-up shop space and the delicious Italian deli and bar Il Cudega, it's a welcome addition to an area with a shortage of nursery spaces, and certainly...

The Professional Spa Breaker We Wish We Could Be

In the pre-George era (PGE) I was never really one for spa breaks. To me they sounded like a naff affectation found in chic lit and the realms of small, suburban dreams. I couldn't imagine anything worse than having to chatter to someone while sat in a soggy robe drifting from one underwhelming "treatment" to another where teenage facilists tell me that I should ditch my established skincare regime. And then,...

If you were a lovely Danish lady living in Australia making necklaces with your children to support another child with cystic fibrosis, what do you think your biggest challenge might be? For Paulina Eaborn, can you believe it, it's abusive emails from would-be customers. I bet there's some other e-tailers out there who can commiserate.

Not So Normal For Nor-Folk

Minimalista sista Fiona Burrage's super-slick design business is the new normal for Norfolk. The East Anglian mum of one and her husband run a design business and have just launched Nor-Folk, their homewares and childrenswear design business. The first collection of childrenswear is about to launch and is called The Wonder Years - not an homage to Kevin and Winnie, but a streamlined take on the first few years of...

Vintage mumma

I'm addicted to vintage furniture and when I met Wendy Aldridge, owner of vintage interior emporium Homeplace, I couldn't wait to see her new business launch. Based in Walthamstow, Homeplace is a website and a delectable Instagram feed - perfect fuel for my interiors obsession and my morning commute. Although we hope for a bricks and mortar store one day so we can wander around Wendy's choice finds. Wendy is one of...

Luxe Loveday Lacies

Who launches a business just before their baby is due? Luisa Loveday, that's who. London mum Luisa brought her gorgeous bits to market just before her babe Cleo-Rose was born, and is amazing inspo for anyone who thinks their babe will put a stop to their small business dreams. When I first came across Luisa Loveday, she pinged a quick message to our local mums’ Facebook group in south-east London...

Hollie de Cruz and Suzy Ashworth are not your average vagina whisperers. If you've ever seen a fictionalised birth on TV or in a movie, it's often a lot of hot-faced huffing and screaming on a bed. The Calm Birth School Birth helps women clear their head of the hype and have a calmer birth with less panic and more peace. We spoke to Hollie, co-founder of The Calm Birth...
