STACEY + LORRAINE

We love Minnow Designs. The best booties made to protect our little ones toes against hot sand, shells and rocks while they explore sand and sea. They are super soft. Super stylish. And are a super practical gift for hip little explorers. We had a chat to the Babes Behind the Brand, Stacey and Lorraine.

BUSINESS.
Minnow Designs

BIGGEST INSPIRATION
LORRAINE. Sara Blakely from Spanx. With no special skills she saw a gap in the market to meet a need, bootstrapped her own business with only 5k investment and still runs her own privately held business. She worked her arse off and made the most of every opportunity. She's the youngest female billionaire in US history and she is no different than any one of us.
STACEY. We also love what the girls from Kip & Co are doing.

WORD THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH.
LORRAINE. Currently deeeeeeeelishish. My 2 year olds favourite word (unfortunately it means nothing as he still doesn't eat my food).
STACEY. The word of the moment in our house is Bubble as said by my 1 year old son Gus and he is so damn cute and excited when he says it, we all chuckle.

WORD THAT MAKES YOU CRINGE.
LORRAINE. Phlegm. It even looks gross when you write it! 
STACEY. PUS ! I can't stand it.

PET PEEVE.
LORRAINE. People who send you an email and text or phone immediately after. Give me a minute!
STACEY. People jumping the queue and rude people.

FREAK OUT.
Heights. We both hate them!

LOVE.
LORRAINE. Floating on my back in the sea in the late afternoons in summer when the water is still warm. The sun is just dipping, bedtime/ winetime is tantalisingly close and all is right with the world!
STACEY. Getting away from it all on a tropical beach island and ice-cream.

LOATHE.
LORRAINE. Unfairness. I've always had a massive soft spot for the underdog.
STACEY. Mosquitos. They actually ruin my summer.

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN.
LORRAINE. Always, always keep their willy pointing downwards. Babies, boys, men, those things are a menace.
STACEY. When the fear of doing something new takes hold, breathe, and ask your irrational side - "what can actually go wrong, seriously?" then do it! take the leap.
