What a great start to 2020 it’s already been here in my little newborn studio in Plymouth! I’ve seen lots of beautiful newborn bundles come through my studio doors and I have been busy planning exciting things for the year ahead with my newborn photography!
I thought I’d kick of the new year with some wonderful shout outs to some new businesses and some of my favourite local businesses!
So lets get started:-
Firstly we have the fantastic Belle Events, they have the most beautiful flower walls, curtains and hire props for all occasions! If you are wanting someone to take the stress away from your celebration decor, give the very lovely Jessica a shout. Check her out here https://www.facebook.com/BellexEvents
Then there is this wonderful lady Sarah with her amazing flower arrangements, perfect for weddings! Her wedding bouquets are just beautiful! I am looking forward to working with Sarah to help plan a styled shoot this year with the aim to feature my images and her beautiful flowers in a local wedding magazine. Exciting! https://www.facebook.com/sarahgfloraldesign/
Then we have Chris! I have personally, recently used Chris and his business https://www.facebook.com/animalencounterswithchris/ for my son Henry’s 5th Birthday and I can’t recommend him enough! The children just loved the experience and I was amazed how he kept a group of 18 under 5s entertained and interested. His animals are SO cute!
Next we have Boutique Nails, a lovely nail and lash salon in Plymouth run by the very lovely Keri, producing some fabulous work, transforming many a hand and eye! Keri is so talented and I just love visiting her! Wonderful lady! https://www.facebook.com/boutiquenailsplymouth/
If however you are a nail technician yourself or if you are looking for further beauty training or supplies, the very lovely Danni is your lady over at Network HQ Supplies and Training. Not only is she just SO lovely, she has so much knowledge to give! https://www.facebook.com/NetworkHeadquarters/
Now we all know how important it is to be able to take time out for ourselves and relax and recoup which is why I love this next lady! Cassie is the lady to go to if you fancy a Pilates class that leaves you feeling worked out but relaxed and refreshed! Also if you’re looking for a Postnatal class you can bring your little one too then she is your lady! I went to Cassie when I was pregnant with henry and just loved her classes. https://www.facebook.com/PilatesWithCassie/
If on the other hand you’re all about high intensity fitness then One Fit Mama is the lady for you! https://www.facebook.com/onefitmamaplymouth/ With her fitness bootcamps to help us women tighten those pelvic muscles, she offers classes you can bring your little one along with you for or classes that are child free!
Forget me not Fashion https://www.facebook.com/Forgetmenotfashion1/ have the most adorable outfits for your little one. Be sure to check out her page and place an order as you won’t be disappointed! One very talented and lovely lady!
Then we have the wonderfully creative Beau Belle Jewellery https://m.facebook.com/BEAU-BELLE-Jewellery-110197287017848/ with their stunning designs like this one! This is a personal favourite of mine combining the silver and the rose gold and would make the perfect Valentines Day gift!
The next section is dedicated to local businesses I love to go to! I’m a fan of wonderful food and drink and these places are highly recommended by the hubby and i!
The Honky Tonk Wine Library is a place you have to check out If you haven’t already been! You can tell from their name what they specialise in and who doesn’t love a chilled place to have a glass of wine or 4! Not only do they do wine, but also have a fantastic food menu, as well as hosting lots of great events including a Jazz and Roast Sunday! The place is so chilled and we just love it! https://www.facebook.com/HonkyTonkWines/
Next and just around the corner from Honky Tonk is another place the hubby and I love to eat out called Suphas https://www.facebook.com/Suphasstreetfood/ This place is street food heaven, it has been a firm favourite of ours for a while! The staff are delightful and the food is to die for!
Last but by no means least, its not a place to eat but it is a great food offer! Veg in a box https://m.facebook.com/veginaboxdevon/ have an amazing Valentines Day offer for £99 for a HUGE selection of lovely produced food plus it includes a meal for two people including starter, main, and dessert with red roses and a few wonderful surprise extras! All products are locally sourced and plastic free too!
I hope you have enjoyed my mini round up of business I love for 2020! I’m sure there will be another one this year! I have lots of blog posts coming up soon to include more about my sessions, inside my studio, safety and the importance of choosing the right newborn photographer to capture those newborn images. THANKYOU for reading and for you continued support as always!
