Welcome to the Snuggles and Kisses Baby & Children’s Boutique
I’m Rebecca, and my love of creating began a long time ago.
In fact, one of my earliest memories is watching my mum on her sewing machine. I would watch, spellbound, at the beautiful fabrics and clothing she would create from scratch. I even snuck onto her machine once when I was around 4 years old to have a go at sewing the pages of my Andy Pandy book together - but managed to sew my finger instead!
Thankfully my technique improved over time, and after studying Fashion Design and Technology for 7 years in total, I then enjoyed a lengthy and rewarding career as a Fashion Designer before going freelance after my first-born Charlie arrived early in 2010.
Charlie arrived at 32 weeks, and it struck me, amid the chaos of early motherhood, that there were very few clothing options for premature or tiny babies. Then just under three years later, when my daughter Ava arrived, they both inspired my decision to make my dream of creating my own exclusive yet affordable children’s range a reality.
It started with dressing Ava in samples of the range at local baby groups, where orders for my designs started pouring in. Soon after this I secured my first retail stockist, and my new range began to rapidly grow.
By day I immersed myself in the mayhem of motherhood, and by night I pored over fabrics, creating designs as Charlie and Ava slept (or didn't sleep which was more of the case!). It wasn’t easy and I was absolutely exhausted, but it brought me to where I am today, and I’d do it all again in a heartbeat.
It was as I sat nursing my daughter one day, with 3 year old Charlie trying to squeeze in for a cuddle, that the perfect name for my business came to me. Because, as we all know, despite the exhaustion, the worries and the struggles, life with little ones really is all about the snuggles and kisses..They're the best bit, and what make it all worth it!
In 2016 I brought the Snuggles and Kisses range, together with a selection of classic toys, and beautiful hand-crafted items by other local mums, to my own boutique. The Snuggles and Kisses Baby & Children’s Boutique had its grand opening in Beeston, Nottingham on 4th June 2016 - where we have continued to create and grow ever since.
