I’ll be adding this into our Christmas Eve box this year for Gray. I can see him enjoying a hot chocolate with marshmallows in front the telly with a festive movie one. Alright I’ve now got all the crimbo feels lol 😂. I think it’s one of the best parts of running a business like this. Creating all the things you love and getting to use them. #familymerch #famdemcrew #personalisedmug

🎄 Christmas Merch for the whole family 👨👩👧👧. Rep your family in our organic cotton personalised jumpers; on Christmas day, if you have guests over for a festive get together, or out to parties with your nearest and dearest, throughout the crimbo season. Matching children’s jumpers will be dropping tomorrow at 9am so keep 👀 em peeled! ✌🏾 link in the bio to the Christmas shop ☝🏾
What will you be wearing on Christmas jumper day? Im not a fan of the novelty ones.

I’ll tag them to make it easier but there’s a link in the bio to the Christmas range. #familymerch #famdemcrew #christmasjumperday
Black Friday is a tricky one for small businesses. Our profit margins are much smaller than big retailers and generally are fair. So slashing prices can be challenging and leave you with very little profit let alone breaking even. I’ll keep banging the drum of supporting small businesses & shopping small where you can. If you’re participating in Black Friday then I’ve got 15% off the Family Merch store for you! #shopsmall #blackfriday
Day 4 of #justacardweek
(side note I’ve really enjoyed this) and it’s all about Christmas plans/events. The best place to find out what we’re up to is to join the mailing list. Heads up there will be little something going down (read discount) starting tomorrow. Next weekend is also #smallbusinesssaturday
and we’ll be doing some more bits then (read another discount code). Not really Christmas but I’m looking for charities that focus on families & women to partner with in the new year, holla if that’s you 🙋🏽♀️. Finally my main plan is to do more of what it says on the mug. #bebadass
I’m a sucker for a personalised mug. When I’m in an office environment I get very possessive over my mugs and hate anyone using it. Im trying to work on this (I’ve been known to stop people mid cuppa and as for my mug back 🙈). Surely I’m not the only one with this issue? Anyway I now have a mug that’s all mine this cool retro enamel mug with my name and initial in black and rose gold marble. These are part of the crimbo 🎄shop and would make the perfect stocking filler! #familymerch #famdemcrew #personalisedgifts #personalisedmerch #personalisedmug
We are well into November now so it’s okay for me to talk about crimbo 🎄 guilt free. Two things: 1. I started my Christmas shopping for the kids got a couple bits in the Sainsbury’s toy sale (last month) and have also been checking out small independent brands on insta and Etsy a great hashtag to find small businesses this Christmas is #socialmumsxmas
2. These bad boys are on sale down to £18.50 for a limited time. There are two designs (I’ve tagged them both) and can be personalised with the name of your choice. I’ve got them for my boys this year. Go check em out & grab a bargain!
P.S. who’s entered the giveaway on my previous post? Go have a look 👀 people!! ✌🏾 out x
This is the first sweatshirt that I’ve released and I’m so proud of it. It’s really close to my heart and means so much. I create The Woman Up sweatshirt because I hate hearing people say man up to women. It’s a pet peeve. I’d been having a hard couple of days and was having to keep pushing through regardless of how I was feeling. In the midst of it I had to give myself a pat on the back for keeping everything going. And so Woman Up Was Born. #womanup #teeswithmeaning #familymerch #famdemcrew
Speaking of Lists, have you signed up to the mailing list yet? No! Go do it now and get 10% off your first order. I tend to put special discounts on there and info on new releases so well worth it. Okay go sign up now folks the link is on the biox

It’s Grays first year of understanding Christmas is thing it will also be Jude’s first Christmas. The boys having to share everything pretty much all the time now. It inspired me to create these for the shop so little people can have something a little special and personalised. There are two designs that you can personalise with the name of your choice.

I wasn’t going to post this today but Raga @parentinginbritain
sent out a call to arms asking a bunch of us to join her campaign in speaking up about mental health. My mental well-being is something I’ve struggled with this year. After having Jude I just knew I wasn’t right, I felt off, disconnect from everything and everyone. I felt like I was drowning. I spoke to my husband about how I was feeling and told him that I felt I needed to get help. I wanted to be the best wife and mother I could be and knew that wasn’t going to happen feeling the way I was. I went to see my GP they were less than helpful. I was offered anti depressants that didn’t feel like the right thing for me, they also told me to read the surgery website for more info. Im not a tech-phobe but reading the website was also not helpful. Long story short I reached out to my health visitor who put me in touch with an organisation that offered support for PND. Yes PND, for the last 7 months I’ve been suffering with post natal depression. Ive found counselling sessions amazing for working through the issues. That said Ive not found it easy to talk about. I’ve felt embarrassed, about what exactly I don’t know 🤷🏽♀️. I’ve managed to avoid talking openly about it by pretty much dropping off the radar from friends & family (sorry guys!), how do you answer that “how are you” question? In-fact I’ve told a handful of family members and 1 friend due to feeling ashamed. I’m writing this because staying silent keeping you in a place of shame when you don’t need to be. Struggling with mental health does not make you weak, does not make you less than, does not make you inferior. It makes you human 1 in 4 people struggle with mental health. If you’re reading this please know you’re not alone. Speak to someone whether it be friends, family, colleagues or GP (most are pretty good I had a bad experience). The one thing you can’t do is to stay silent xx #worldmentalhealthday2018 #pnd #familymerch #famdemcrew
Mondaying with an eye infection 🤓😩 (or is it hay fever?) BUT I still stand before you ‘gram fam - all 3,544 of you fine followers - in my new favourite slogan t-shirt ❤️ Thank you so much to the LOVELY Janine at @familymerch #gift
🎁Go, go and have a gander folks after all, it’s not like slogan style is going away anywhere soon...or EVER ❤️#BeniSoundsBetterThanBlessed
So in the interest of transparency I dressed the boys in matching Bro Hood tee’s purely for the shameless insta cuteness twinning opportunities. I should have known better! Getting them to sit still let alone together for a photo is almost impossible. Not only that but they get so mucky very quickly. What I will say is that their tee’s wash up so well. They are my official quality assurance officers (I pay them in milk, cuddles and chocolate 😜). Seriously though the t-shirts have really been through the mill. They’ve been covered in paint, sand, all sorts of food & sick-ups. There has even been an unfortunate episode that involved a poop 💩 explosion 💥 & not enough wipes 🤢........let’s just leave leave it there. I put in lots of effort to find and road test tee’s that can stand the test of time I figure if they can hold up against my mucky two we’re onto a winner. Right I’m off to try & clean these two up now! Wish me luck 😬 #familymerch #famdemcrew #brohood
