Oh we do love to be by the seaside, and so do Jo and Sue! Jo and Sue are the proud owners of the Cornish company SeaKisses, a lifestyle brand which creates seaside inspired homeware and accessories!
This lovely pair both have backgrounds in Media and Graphic Design; Sue used to publish swanky magazines in London, and Jo worked for a company making lovely stationery products. At the beginning of the 21st Century they both found themselves in Cornwall, and discovered a shared love of life by the seaside.
By 2011 they began making framed prints with lovely words about the places they knew in Cornwall. A few kind retailers agreed to sell them and people loved them. Within a few months they realised they had a business with potential and SeaKisses was born!
Living close to the sea means that Jo and Sue see the damage that 21st Century Living has on the marine environment. As a result, they try to seek out alternatives to plastic, with their Travel Cups and Dog Bowls being made from Bamboo Fibre instead! All their linens are also made in Cornwall and they only use water based inks to minimise the effect that they have on the environment.
For a chance to win some SeaKisses goodies and a box of Portlebay Popcorn, head over to one of our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the competition directions for Day 14 of our Christmas Advent Competition! (This launches at 5pm tonight!)
Best Friends Charlotte and Jess are the co-founder of the absolutely gorgeous online shop Coconut Lane. Best friends since they were in Year 7, they then went together to Bristol University, before starting their exciting business venture in the world of Homeware and Fashion.
Working with your best friend, creating beautiful products sounds truly amazing to us! Jess had this to say about working with her number 1 gal pal:
“Having a business together was a venture Charlotte and I always dreamed about, even when we were at school. After some short experience in the industry after finishing Uni and some debates as to whether we were too young and inexperienced to start our own business – we decided to take the plunge and we haven’t looked back since. Coconut Lane was created in 2015; our vision was simple – to inject some fun and sass into the world of homeware and fashion accessories.”
Here is the coconut Lane life motto: In the words of Regina George – “Get in Loser, we’re going shopping.” Coconut Lane brings shoppers the ultimate chic homeware and fashion accessories, which aim to inspire and motivate and turn the dreams of every #girlboss into a reality.
We are very excited to announce that Coconut Lane have partnered with us for our Christmas Advent Competition (Day 12), so make sure you head over to one of our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the directions for a chance to win some Coconut Lane goodies and a box of Portlebay Popcorn!
